Spellbinders 3D Christmas Tree Cards

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that Christmas is soon on it’s way again and it’s certainly not too early to be thinking about making cards for those special someones on your card list.

P1130766

Spellbinders has released this fantastic Shapeabilities 3D Christmas Card Tree which creates this stunning dimensional card front.  Now whom on your Christmas Card List wouldn’t love to find this in their mailbox.  Oh and speaking of mailing, the tree will fold flat to fit in your envelope.  The one I’ve made is a standard A2 size card 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The dies include the Christmas ornaments, holly and star to add that extra somethin’ special to the tree.

P1130763

Include a few packages that you’ve cut from your scraps and wrapped with ribbon or cord for under the tree, there must be presents under the tree!  I also topped the Ornaments with a dab of Silver stickles to add that little Christmas sparkle.

P1130764

For the inside of my cards I picked another Spellbinders die, the Die D-Lites Miracle of Lights.  I added some Martha Stewart Glitter Glue to the flames so they’d shimmer a little and stamped my sentiment from JustRight Stampers – Christmas Inner Thoughts collection.

P1130761

I won’t lie to you, if you add the holly and Ornaments like I have this card is a little time consuming, but so worth it!  If you want to speed up the process use some Stickles on the Ornaments instead of cutting the individual pieces, but I’ll tell you you’ll prefer the die cuts to the Stickles!  Join me on the video and I’ll show you how I put the card together.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Make sure you check out the preview videos of all the new Sizzix releases on our Youtube channel. Four new collections were just released this weekend: Triplits by Stephanie Barnard, 25th & Pine by Basic Grey, Winter by Rachael Bright and Halloween collection by Tim Holtz. Homemade & Homegrown by Stephanie Ackerman is due to arrive this week as well.

For those of you who were trying to shop  Thursday and Friday, you may have noticed our store looked pretty empty :( We had an “update gone wrong” and it wiped out about 1500 products from our store! YIKES!! The joys of online retail! My web guru extraordinaire was able to get all the products back on the site within 24 hours (shout out to Steve! Thanks buddy!!). That created inventory issues, so the whole gang here at Cut@Home worked all day Friday getting the inventory straightened around. My crew is the BEST, and we were totally functioning again by Friday night! Awesome! Anyway, my sincerest apologies to any of you who were inconvenienced in any way.

Now I am gearing up for a BIG Labor Day sale! So be looking for a newsletter later this week and get ready to SHOP!

Take care, have a good week and happy scrappin’ to you all!

Decorated Graphic 45 Gift Tags

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Summer celebrations are here, and I have been in serious need of gift tags for all those birthday presents and little girl parties we are invited to. I have had in my stash a package of AMAZING Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tags that been begging to be used.  In my previous post, I have made some cards using Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack, and what a better way to have coordinating tags and cards.

I made 4 gorgeous tags in less than 20 minutes.

Let’s get started, the tutorial shows how to make one tag. However you can simply follow the same step multiple times and make an “assembly line” of tags.

1.  Cut pre-printed tag from Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

2. Stamp sentiment “It’s a beautiful day!” from JustRite Stampers Cupcake celebrations using different color ink for each word.

3.  Adhere stamped tag to Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tag.

4. Decorate using arrow stickers included in the Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

5. Place enamel dot and/or decorative gem.

6. Tie a Ribbon

Tim Holtz Distressed Doily Cards

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Are you a fan of Pinterest?  I sure am, it can be down right addicting at times!  But it also has a wealth of inspiration.  I ran across a card the other day where they had used a doily type die for the front of their card and I thought hmmmm I have Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Distressed Doily Die and I’ve never used it!  Time to get that puppy out and play.  This is the result –

P1130080

I just love how it turned out!  I cut the doily across the bottom half of my card base front leaving the fold intact.  Then I cut another doily from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper collection to shadow over top.  You can actually cut both together. I’m using the Sizzix Big Shot, you’ll need to try it with your machine and also take into account the weight of your cardstock that you’re making the card base from.  I found that if I placed my card base next to the die and then the lighter weight decorative paper over top I could cut them both at the same time.  It takes trial and error to see how your machine works.  But never fear, if you cut them separately as I did this first card (in the photo above) just offset the doilies if they don’t line up.  I dropped the top one down just a smidge as well.

P1130082

See how there”s space between the layers?  I used foam adhesive dots to pop the decorative layer out from the card base and attached it directly to the cardstock along the bottom.  This gives great dimension.  I trimmed both layers above doily so the front is almost cut in half.  I tied the front and back together with seam binding I’d dyed using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Forest Moss.

P1130085

On the inside I used a stamp from JustRite Stampers Black Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five for my sentiment.  This was done with Black embossing powder to give it just a little lift and mounted onto a Spellbinders Labels 36.  The birds and leaves are fussy cut from the paper and positioned to the side of the sentiment.  Tucked back behind is a frayed piece of burlap and on the right hand bottom I inked and tucked in a flourish from Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls.

P1130087

Here’s another card which you’ll see along with a third in the video.  This is the same principle but this time turning the die upside down and leaving the card base intact and folding it into an easel card, propped open by the robin that’s been popped up on the inside.  Check out the video as I walk you step by step in the creation of the first card above and examples of two others.  Plus ideas on how to enhance the back of the cards.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

JustRite Stampers Coffee Cup Cards

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

P1130067

JustRite Stampers designs the most versatile dies and stamps, I’ve used several of them on today’s cards.  I stamped the JustRite Coffee Cup Stamp on Stratmore Watercolor Paper.  This is a nice 90# weight (190 gsm) paper and wonderful for a card base.   I double matted the coffee accent with papers from Kaisercraft’s Storyteller 6 1/2″ paper pad and added flourishes top and bottom from  Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls to finish off the card front.  Oh yes, I used my Corner Chomper to add a decorated corner edge all around.

P1130068

The stamped image was colored using my water brush and various Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used JustRite’s Vintage Labels Five Dies to triple cut the stamped and colored coffee cup image.  By using all but the smallest die you come out with 3 layers to add a great dimensional accent to the card front.

P1130069

Inside has as much going on as the outside, I love having a finished inside to my cards.  I used JustRite’s Vintage Labels Six Dies to cut the pink mat and then stamped my sentiment (from Penny Black’s Special Wishes Stamps Set) on the watercolor paper and cut it with another die from the Vintage Labels Six Dies.  Adding a lovely flourish from Marianne Designs Vintage Swirls dies just adds the right amount of ta-da to the inside.  To complete the inside I used the negative space that was left when I die cut the flourish and pounced some pink ColorBox chalk ink through the cutout (my own home made stencil!). Because the flourishes were cut with the watercolor paper they are sturdy and will provide many stencil uses for future cards.

This weeks video will walk you step by step on how to create this card and also show you how to add ink to your Gold Spellbinders dies to incorporate a unique stamped effect when you cut your die.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Cupcakes Card Using JustRite Stampers Die Set!

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Today I want to share a card that I made using the Spellbinders Cupcake Stand die set from JustRite Stampers.  What a fun set!   It has everything that you need to make a beautiful (or fun) card front — the background “label”, a cupcake stand, 3 sets of dies to make a multi-layer cupcake (this alone makes them appear so dimensional), a bow and ribbons, and even dies to make ice cream cones (watch for those in a future post!).   The die set coordinates with a clear stamp set also by JustRite Stampers called “Cupcake Celebration” (not used for this post, but available from Cut at Home).

023

The first step in making my card always seems to be selecting the appropriate cardstock for the card and its layers.  I loved the pinky red patterned paper that I used as the main layer of the card, but I had a lot of difficulty choosing what to put with it.  Sometimes that is just such a challenge!  I finally determined that the best alternative was a natural white (soft ivory) color, but that almost seemed like too much contrast.  I knew I was going to have to distress the edges to make it work.

When I’m inking layers to make them blend better,  I like to use at least two different colors of ink to add some depth and dimension.  For this project I chose Memento inks, Toffee Crunch and Peanut Brittle.  Both are light brown inks, but one has more grayed tones, while the other is softer and yellower.  They complement one another very well, and the result using both is better than just using one or the other.  Sometimes it also makes sense to use a third ink — one that complements the background.  For this card it could be “Love Letter”, for example.  Please see the short video for additional information on the process I use to distress the edges, etc.

I cut the cupcake stand and bow and ribbons from a brushed silver cardstock.  I wanted to get the look of a detailed silver cupcake stand, and it worked quite well.  You can’t see it very well in the photograph, but all of the pieces have a great amount of detail that adds to the authenticity or believability.  This simply means that you don’t have to do much beyond cut and emboss and you are ready to assemble your card.   Be sure to emboss each of these pieces — the details are important.

The only decisions with the cupcakes are what color should the cupcake liner be, and what flavor are the cupcakes.  You can see I couldn’t decide on flavor, so I alternated chocolate and vanilla cupcakes.  I chose to use a white parchment as the liner because I wanted a more formal appearance.  So I cut 4 chocolate cupcake bases and 4 vanilla cupcake bases (normally you just need the tops, but with the vellum, I needed the flavor to show through).  I also cut 8 cupcake bases from the vellum.  I cut 4 matching chocolate tops, and 4 vanilla tops.  Finally, I cut eight of the white icing topper.  All very easy.

The “celebrate” sentiment is from a set of clear stamps by Paper Smooches.  I cut a piece of vellum using one of the dies from the Spellbinders A2 Card Creator Modern Stationary die set (I love this set!).  I stamped the sentiment on the vellum using Onyx Black Versafine ink.  (Be sure to allow this to dry thoroughly so it doesn’t smear.)

From here it is all assembly.  I used small pieces of Scor-Tape to attach the cupcake layers together.  I was careful to keep the adhesive toward the top of the cupcake where it would be hidden by other layers.  I placed the label on the card layers, and attached it using Scor-Tape.  I used 1/8″ Scor-Tape to attach the cupcake stand to the label.  I worked with the arrangement of the cupcakes a little until I was happy with it, and then attached them with a little of the Scor-Tape.  I used Pink Fizz Smooch Glitz to embellish the cupcakes.   The bow and ribbon pieces were attached below the label with 1/8″ Scor-Tape.  Finally, I added the “celebrate” sentiment using Scotch vellum adhesive, and attached the card front to a card back.  Easy peasy!

This is a wonderfully versatile die set — it will make a more formal card like I showed you above, or it will make a bright, fun card — and everything in between.  I think that you know me well enough by now that I can share with you an “oops” card — one where I just should have paid more attention as I was assembling.  Yikes, the dreaded leaning cupcake stand!
