Puppy Love

November 12, 2019

Hello everyone and welcome, Sandy here. It’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks Santa will be loading up his sleigh and getting ready for the big night. It’s time to make all the preparations so we’re ready for the big guy to arrive. Today I want to share a fun and festive tree ornament that can be made in a short time and it’s lots of fun for the kids to do as well. A nice project for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Here is my tutorial:

I began with the adorable Dog die. After cutting out all the pieces using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Velvet Paper, they were edged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and assembled as shown above. The die makes the crease lines for the mouth and snout, using a black marker simply follow the outline. The eyes and nose are Nuvo Drops but they can be easily made by using the marker for them as well. I used the Santa Hat from the Santa Claus die set. The hat was placed on the pup before adding the ears.

The snowbanks were made by cutting a circle from the Fitted Circle die set and then cut into sections using the Adventure Edges.

For the frame of the wreath I used a 4″ embroidery hoop. The inside was painted white while the outside edges were painted green to match the pine boughs that will be added later.

The first snowbank was added to the back of the hoop and the rest were added in layers using foam tape between each layer.

Using the Fitted Circle die set – cut a backing piece (snowflake paper was used here).

The Santa’s Sleigh die set was used for the tree and gifts. Place your cute little pup where you want him and the start adding the other items as desired. Since the snowbanks were raised on foam tape, foam tape was also used at the back of the dog’s head. Use the top of one of the bows to add a bow on the neck of the dog.

You can use any greenery die that you happen to have in your collection. I cut 25 to go all the way around the 4″ hoop. Glue was added to the back (top portion only) of the bough and glued to the hoop. Each time a layer was added, the previous one was lifted up and the next one place under it.

Keep going until the hoop is completely covered. Tie a small bow and add to the top. If you plan to hang this ornament on your tree you will need an extra piece of ribbon for a loop at the top.

Thank you for joining me. You may also want to make this cute ornament into a shaker ornament. That is easy to do by adding shaker items on the inside and some clear acetate on the front of your ornament before you add the greenery.

Happy Crafting,

S@ndy

Let Love Bloom

October 31, 2019

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here, sharing my love of all things gold and glittery… I was so excited to get my hands on the new Craft Drops that I wanted to share a different way of using them. A perfect match with the latest release Cherry Blossom Branch die.

Card Instruction:

Step 1: Die cut the Blossom branches and adhere these to Kraft cardstock.

Step 2: Using different shades of pink and purple card – die cut the blossoms.

Step 3: Using a small brush or finger spread the Craft Drop paste on to the edges of the blossoms.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment.

Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

Step 6: Adhere all the Blossoms.

Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 8: Die cut the remaining blossom dies. Adhere these to the blossoms on your card front.

Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

I love how shimmery the gold sparkles off the blossoms – the photo doesn’t do it justice!

Happy Crafting!

How To Emboss With Die Sets

October 27, 2019

Hi there everyone! 

Angela here with today’s post. A good friend of mine is having hip replacement surgery next week so of course I need a card. I thought this would be a great time to try something I’ve not done before. I’ve used one of the Planner Patterns dies to emboss watercolor paper and then used watercolor paint to create an ombre effect to fill in the pattern. Stamps and dies from the Sentiments 2 sets complete my card front. Here’s how it all came together.

  • Cut a piece of watercolor paper to 3.75 X 5 inches.
  • Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 X 5.25 inches.
  • Cut Soft Finish cardstock to 5.5 X 8.5 and fold in half to create the card.
  • Using a piece of low tack tape or a sticky note, center the die onto the watercolour paper and fasten.
  • Follow the appropriate sandwich on your particular cutting machine. Remember to place your die cutting side to the paper, and then onto the silicone mat. This way the blade will emboss and not cut the paper.
  • Run the sandwich though the machine.
  • Once the embossing is done, use your favourite watercolours to paint each shape, starting with the lightest colour.
  • As you move from one corner to the other, mix colors to create the ombre pattern. Let it dry.
  • Attach the layers and center onto the card base.
  • Stamp and cut the sentiment and attach using foam tape.

And you’re done! I hope this gave you some inspiration to create your own embossed cards!
