Hello Pumpkin

September 8, 2017

Hi friends and welcome,

Now that the calendar says September I have thoughts of fall and all the things that are associated with it – like pumpkins.  There is just something about a pumpkin that brings a smile to my face.  Not only do I love pumpkins, my favorite color is, you guessed it, orange.  Today I’m sharing a card that I created using the pumpkins from the new release by Joset Designs.

Purple Jumpers in a Layout and Card

September 3, 2017

 

Hello there! It’s Riikka here today guesting with two projects!

Autumn weather means jumpers need to be taken out of the closets so I thought to make a layout and a card using the fun jumper die from Joset’s winter collection. I chose to use purple as my color palette this time in honor of the velvet nights autumn also brings.

The layout is about my daughters although there’s just a picture of my older daughter in there. It always amazes me how they both have such a strong own style at such a young age. I mean I found my style when I was over 20! So I made the page to celebrate that they have their own style also in the hopes that it will stay that way when they grow up.

If you want to see how the layout was made, please see the steps below! And if you want to see how they turn into a card form, please scroll even further down.

Die Cut Cards with Distress Oxide Backgrounds

August 17, 2017

Hello everybody, it´s Sanna here and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team today. If you know me, you know that I love color. I have been going up and down ever since the Distress Oxides arrived and told myself I don´t really need more inks. Well, eventually I gave in and got myself a set of six colors. Needless to say, I totally fell in love with the inks and I am afraid I am going to need a few more colors soon. The inks work so nicely with the Soft Finish Cardstock, too. (Am I finding excuses to buy a few more colors? Yes, I am…)  Continue Reading

King of the Road

August 11, 2017

Hi friends and welcome, Mac and I are currently in the middle of our annual RV trip so naturally I have travel on the brain.  This time around I’m sharing a banner made using the great papers from ModaScrap along with Soft Finish Cardstock, and featuring dies from Joset Designs.  When I saw this fabulous travel-themed paper at my local scrapbook store I knew what I wanted to make.  I chose parts of the paper that depict places we have been in our motor coach and then embellished with die cuts that went with that theme.  I even wrote my own verses to the tune of the old Roger Miller song “King of the Road” that go along with motor coach travel.  You can see my lyrics by clicking on my name at the bottom of this post which will take you to my personal blog.  Enjoy.

Leaves of Gold – Layout and Card by Riikka

August 6, 2017

 

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!

This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!

Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!

Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

August 4, 2017
Camping Out Colorado Canoe Card

Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Masculine Happy Birthday Pillow Box

August 3, 2017

 

Hey Everyone! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Masculine Happy Birthday Pillow Box. The starting point for my project was the fabulous Pillow Box with Handles die. The project took shape when I combined the pillow box with a variety of die cut images from Elizabeth Craft Designs and ModaScrap, along with some ModaScrap patterned paper. Let me show you below how to make it at home.

1. Die cut the Pillow Box with Handles from ModaScrap Manly Man patterned paper.

2. Die cut the 5/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the stitched fishtail banner die on the other end of the banner and cut the banner down to 3 5/8″. Die cut the 1/4″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of the back side of one of the Manly Man patterned papers. Place the stitched fishtail banner die on the other end of the banner and cut the banner down to 3″. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Happy Birthday sentiment and stamp onto the 1/4″ banner. Ink the edges of both banners using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

3. Die cut the small feather out of patterned paper. Die cut the other two feathers out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Blend Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the large feather with a blending tool and foam. Blend Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the medium feather using a blending tool and foam. Spritz both inked feathers with water to create a mottled effect. Let the feathers dry. Ink the edges of all three feathers using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam. Shape the feathers as desired.

4. Die cut a 2 3/4″ and a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of patterned paper from the Manly Man patterned paper pack. Ink the edges of the circles using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

5. Die cut the Leafy Branch 3 out of patterned paper from the Manly Man patterned paper pack. Ink the edges of the leafy branch using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

6. Using the back side of one of the Manly Man patterned paper pieces for the front side of the leaves, die cut the Pair of Leaves 1. Ink the edges of the leaves using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

7. Die cut one of the Arrows out of patterned paper from the Manly Man patterned paper pack. Ink the edges of the arrow using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

8. Adhere the sides of the pillow box together, making sure the flap with the notch is tp the inside of the pillow box.

9. Adhere the 2 1/4″ stitched circle to the 2 3/4″ stitched circle.

10. Adhere the leafy branch 3 to the middle of the stitched circles. Adhere the pair of leaves over the leafy branch 3, making sure some of the leafy branch shows. Trim off the bottom of the branch and leaves as desired.

11. Adhere the feathers to the center of the circle, overlapping as shown.

12. Adhere the 1/4″ stitched fishtail banner to the 5/8″ stitched fishtail banner. Adhere the arrow across the bottom of the banner.

13. Using foam squares to add dimension, adhere the Happy Birthday banner across the bottom of the feathers.

14. Again using foam squares to add dimension, adhere the layered circle with banner to the front of the box. Your Masculine Pillow Box is now complete.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Masculine Happy Birthday Pillow Box.
