November 26, 2019

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I am going to show you how to turn the adorable little birdhouse into a Christmas Ornament.

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • die cut all the elements needed using dies from the Birdhouse set
  • use white Soft Finish Cardstock and woodgrain cardstock

Step 2: Coloring

  • color the elements with Alcohol Markers
  • add shading to the birdhouse with Distress Oxide Ink Ground Espresso
  • use Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils to add shading to the other elements
  • add highlights to the lights with a white gel pen

Step 3: Creating Glitter Embossing Powder

  • add some Versamark to the snow bank and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder
  • before the embossing powder sets sprinkle on some Cold Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter
  • heat the snow bank up again and the glitter melts into the clear embossing powder

Step 4: Assembly

  • use clear double-sided adhesive or liquid glue to assemble the birdhouse
  • before gluing on the roof make sure to add a strand of natural twine as a hanger

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

Lunch Box Notes

August 28, 2019

Every year at the beginning of the school year, I like to whip up a ton of Lunch Box notes for the kids to stick into their lunches. These are small one sided note cards that I can write a quick positive note on the back.

The key to this notes are to make something pretty, but that can be whipped up quickly. And now that my daughters are older, they need to be a little more mature. So I love how the Romantic Bouquet and Lace Card dies allow me to make these special little notes so easily.

Step One: Trim up four pieces of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 2.75×4.25 inches.

Step Two: Die cut two of the pieces of paper with the Romantic Bouquet and two with the Lace Card. Yes the paper is smaller than the dies, but it works.

Step Three: Spray one of each die cuts with some spray ink. I chose purple for my youngest daughter.

Step Four: Repeat step three with the other two die cuts and a different color. I used orange for my oldest daughter.

Step Five: Trim up four pieces of Soft Finish Cardstock to coordinate with the sprayed ink to 2.75×4.25 inches. I used Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Rust Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the sprayed die cuts onto the colored cardstock using some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Six: Cover a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock with a piece Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. Die cut your sentiment from the prepared cardstock. I used the die sets Words 2- Thinking of You and Words 4- Remember so I could use the words ‘forever’ and ‘good luck’.

Step Seven: Cover the die cut sentiments in one color of Silk Microfine Glitter. I used Royal Blue Silk Microfine Glitter for one set.

And Copper Silk Microfine Glitter for the other.

Step Eight: Adhere the the sentiments to the note card using some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Nine: Add a strip of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the edges of the note card. Make sure to press the tape firmly to the project.

Step Ten: Add coordinating MicroFine Glitter to the 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

I love how these little note cards came out and can’t wait to use them in my daughter’s lunch boxes. These were super easy to make and yet I think the glitter makes it perfect for my not so little girls.

Thanks for peeking in today. Let us know in the comments below what you do for your kids or grandkids at back to school season. Until then, happy crafting.

Whimsical Happy Hot Chocolate Season Cards

Whimsical Happy Hot Chocolate Season Cards

It’s Elena today! I always love whimsical cards and the Hot Chocolate die set makes it easy to make one. For this project I combined the Hot Chocolate dies with the Snowflakes Clear Stamps to create two very different backgrounds – two cards for the price of one. (Each time ink is lifted from one background, it is stamped onto the other one!) I added touches of red for the holiday season but these could easily be adapted as winter cards after the holidays. Here’s how I made them: Continue Reading
