Graphic 45 and Lawn Fawn Gift Card Holder

Friday, September 26th, 2014

Karen N here sharing with you a Happy Haunting Halloween gift card holder!  My “kids” are all too old for trick-or-treat, so I usually gift them an iTunes gift card in a fun gift-card holder.  This one uses Graphic 45 {An Eerie Tale} paper and Lawn Fawn {Happy Haunting} stamp set along with the new Spellbinders Nestabilities – Labels 39 dies.

Here’s the gift card holder.  On the left is the cover and on the right is the inside.

I cut a white card stock card base using the largest size of the Labels 39.  I folded it and brought the fold slightly inside the die (to make sure the fold wasn’t cut).  Then, I cut four patterns from Graphic 45 Eerie Tale, lined them up and scissor cut the edge.  For the inside patterns, I then cut just a smidge more off so that the card would fold nicely.

The cover image is from the Lawn Fawn {Happy Haunting} stamp set colored with Tim Holtz distress watercolor markers.  I inked the edges with distress ink in Black Soot and Weathered Wood.  Then, I stamped and fussy cut the ghosts to finish off the scene.  Inside, I cut a smaller size label for the sentiment.  On the left side of the inside, I’ll glue dot my gift cards in.  The final touch was to add some ribbon (to cover the edges inside) and tie a bow!

Here’s a video that explains the process.

 

Thank you for visiting today.  Hope everyone has a hauntingly happy Halloween!

Craftily yours,

Karen

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’!

Spellbinders Labels Forty-One and Forty-Two Card Ideas

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Spellbinders has a large assortment of dies, as you probably already know and their label collection is one of my favorite and I feel the most versatile especially for the Cardmaker.  The dies are always sorted per category and these new Labels Dies are part of the Nestabilities collection.  This means they will nest well within one another to add dimension and pop to your card fronts, layouts, mini albums or whatever you decide to use them for.  I’m going to share three cards and three ideas to get your creative juices flowing.  At the bottom of this post will be the complete list of all the dies and supplies I’ve used from the store.

Labels 41-42

I’ve used the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One and Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.   At the time of this post these dies are pre-order only, so you’ll want to get your orders in now so that once they hit the store shelves they’ll be shipped out right away to you.

Labels 41-044

This first card measures 5″ square.  I’ve used a combination of pink and white cardstock along with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, Decorative Accents dies.  This cuts the large white base and the pink solid in the forefront.  Along with my Sizzix Big Shot I also used the Sizzix Magnetic Plate for Wafer Thin Dies and the Spellbinders Tool ‘n One.  These two items just make your die cutting so much easier.  Oh yes I used Scor-Pal’s No More Shims rubber mat to help even the pressure as I emboss the cut outs.

Labels 41-047

This beautifully intricate accent is cut from the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  You may have to use paper shims as you cut and rotate your plate after each pass until you get all the details cut completely.  But oh my isn’t it worth it? Check out more spellbinders card ideas on http://www.pinterest.com/cardmaking/!

Labels 41-051

This card base was cut with Spellbinders Labels Forty-Two, as you watch the video I’ll show you exactly how to create this fantastic card base from your die.   The beautiful center is cut using Spellbinders Decorative Elements Labels Forty-One.  See how all these dies compliment one another adding another layer to your card.  This card starts with the standard A2 size card base, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ but once you cut the decorative shape to the edges your card goes down to about 4 1/4″ square.

Labels 41-056

The last card uses all the dies in the Spellbinders Decorative Accents Labels Forty-One.  I’ll show you how to cut them all at the same time on the video.  You also can see the difference of using one color, like this card, as opposed to the pink and white combination in the first card.  It just depends on the look you want to achieve.  This is the largest card and measures 6″ square.  Any decorative paper on the cards was cut from Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms 12×12 paper collection.  I hope you’ll come follow along on the video, I’ll share lots of ideas and more photos.

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Scrapbook Layout with Spellbinders Cascade Dots

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Happy Monday! This week I did a scrapbook layout with Spellbinders Cascade Dots A2 Card Die, yes a scrapbook layout! I wanted to share ways to use this die in a scrapbook layout. I also used Pebbles Chalks for creating the bubbles in the layout.

Before we get started here is a list of supplies I used for my project that are available here at the Cut at Home site:

Spellbinders Cascade Dots A2 Card Die, SKU: S4 456
Pebbles Chalk Set – Pastels, SKU: 742002
Sizzix Big Shot, SKU:657900
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo, SKU:SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T

Other products used from my stash, pink, blue and white card stock, vellum, washi tape and acrylic circles.

This was such a fun project, I took these pictures last weekend while we were blowing bubbles, and I had just gotten the Cascade Dots die, it’s a great die for card fronts, but it reminded me of bubbles so I thought it would be perfect for my layout!

I started with two 12 x12 sheets of pink card stock, next I cut two white and three blue of the Cascade Dots. I trimmed my pictures in length to 5 1/2 inches to match the die cuts. The blue and white I used Bazzill Bling card stock, I like the shimmer of that stock. Next I ran a strip of Washi tape across the top and bottom of one of the pink card stock sheets. Next I arranged the die cuts and photos in an alternating pattern on the page, after I adhered the die cuts and photos I took three more pictures and cut them out with a circle cutter, I adhered those on the die cuts. Finally I made the bubbles for the embellishments. To learn how to make the bubbles see the above video. Here is a look at the finished page:

photo 3

For the second page I used the pink card stock for the base, next I took two of the pictures and adhered them to the right side of the page, next I ran a strip of Washi tape right along side of the pictures. I knew I wanted to use “Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere”, so I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the title. I used a font called “Bubble Font” for the word Bubbles. I also had two other pictures that I wanted to be a focal point, I used the last two die cut pieces one blue, on white, arranged them on the left side of the page, placed one of the pictures offset on the die cut, then used a circle cutter to cut the other picture, I placed that over the other die cut. I adhered everything once I was happy with the arrangement. Finally I created and added more bubbles! Here is a look at the second page:

This was such a fun layout, I really love how the bubbles came out using the vellum and the chalks, one bit of advise for adhering the bubbles once you have them made, if you have a Xyron sticker maker the acrylics will feed through it and it makes it so you cannot see the adhesive. Here is a look at the two pages together:

I hope you enjoyed my project this week, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

Silhouette Vinyl and Heat Transfer paper – Deal of the Week!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Hello scrappers!

We are clearing the decks for all the NEW Silhouette America product! I know last week I told you the new vinyl and heat transfer paper was in stock. Well…I got my order and it wasn’t in the box. I was passed incorrect (albeit hopeful) information which wasn’t true, so I apologize for that! The good news is it is on its way and that means I have to clear out the discontinued stock. So the Deal of the Week is select vinyl and heat transfer from Silhouette at 30% off!

The VIP codes for September are SEP432 for Spellbinders and SIZ9SE for Sizzix and Tim Holtz Sizzix.

When I got into work this morning, I had a pleasant surprise waiting for me from Spellbinders. Their new Create-A-Flower and Pretty Petal Die D-Lites are shipping this week! You see the video of the new Cherry Blossoms on our Youtube channel. Here is what the project looks like:

They look so real!!

Other new items I am introducing this week is the Pink Lemonade collection from Magnolia. Tilda is dressed in her best summer finery and you will love this stamp collection.

Isn’t she adorable!

Another item I am really excited about is the Darice Embossing Essentials dies! We all LOVE their embossing folders and these dies will compliment the EF’s great! These chemically etched dies come in a variety of geometric shapes as well as other popular shapes like hearts, labels, etc. They can be used in most die-cutting machines and at $13.49 per set, the price point is really a bargain. Give them a try and let me know what you think!

We will be featuring a separate blog post and video on these later this month.

Emma Lou from Heartfelt Creations has done it again with another gorgeous collection of dies, stamps and paper! You are going to really go for the Classic Sunflower Collection! Here is an example of a card from this collection. I love the pairing of sunflowers with denim.  Here is an example of two of the papers.

Makes me want to redecorate my entire house in sunflowers and denim!

For those of you who happen to be shopping this weekend, and noticed our store was empty of all products for a few hours, we had a corrupt file in our product table. It was probably me, as I was loading the new Silhouette vinyl fast and furiously! I take credit for it and offer my apologies to any of you who were inconvenienced. If you happen to be caught by a “Marcie Bug” as I like to call them, let Tristan or Tauna know, and mention free gift in your next order and for your inconvenience, we will add one to your order. The store was still totally safe and secure, it was NOT a breach, just me going too fast! Sorry!

Have a great week! I will see you next Monday with our NEW Deal of the Week and other fabulous new products. Until then, keep watching our blog and youtube channel as my incredibly talented Design Team give you ideas and tips on how to make the most of your papercrafting hobby.

Happy Scrappin!
