Christmas Church

Hey everybody! Can you believe we’re almost a week into November already?! Happy Heavenly birthday to my crafty sister who would have been 74 today. I love her and miss her so much. I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer with my final inspiration project showcasing these new brads! This super cute Christmas Church box card features the Caroler Brads and Snow Tree Brads adorned with 3mm Champagne Jewel Bling Strip and a sentiment on the back created with Christmas Holly Washi Tape! And being a box card means it folds flat for mailing!

I cut all the pieces from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory and CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Antique Gold cardstock. I used a yellow alcohol marker to color the windows.

After assembling the church, I added the Caroler Brads and Snow Tree Brads, and then embellished all three sections with 3mm Champagne Jewel Bling Strips.

This box card has a pull-out element with plenty of room to write a custom message. The final touch was adding a sentiment on the back pocket created with a strip of Christmas Holly Washi Tape applied to a scrap of ivory cardstock, trimmed, and layered on antique gold cardstock.

Surfin’ Santa with a ho ho ho

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday to you! Since it’s the first day of November, it’s busy here on my blog this morning, lol! Another one of my projects was in the Top 3 at Scrapping4fun Challenges several weeks ago and I was invited to guest for Challenge #218 – Summer/Winter, so here I am! I featured both Summer AND Winter in my DT inspiration project and just love how it turned out! You know I’m a huge fan of box cards, so I used the Surfing Santa Card cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs!

I cut the card base from Cardstock Warehouse Brown Box 100# Kraft cardstock, and the rest of the pieces from CutCardStock Pop Tone Black Licorice, Pop Tone Hot Fudge, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Sweet Tooth, Pop Tone Wild Cherry, and Sandcastle cardstock, along with Hot Off The Press Seascapes & Sand 6×6 double-sided cardstock and Brutus Monroe blue glitter cardstock. I always say the most fun part is the assembly, and this one was no different! I love watching them come to life!

Here is a shot of the back showing the panel to write a custom message and signature and an angled side shot showing the construction. Box cards are so much fun!

Snowman with Carolers

10/22/22 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hi everybody! It’s officially the middle of October and I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today as a guest designer with a fun inspiration project using some of the new brads in the store! This snowman box card features the new Caroler Brads and Snow Tree Brads along with the Christmas Holly Washi Tape (for the sentiment) that’s already in the store.

I cut the base from Neenah Classic Linen Solar White cardstock, and the rest of the pieces from CutCardStock Silk Glitter Black Prince, Pop Tone Wild Cherry, Pop Tone Hot Fudge, Pop Tone Black Licorice, Pop Tone Lemon Drop and Basis Orange cardstock.

I assembled the box card and added three Caroler Brads and three Snow Tree Brads. I applied a strip of the Christmas Holly Washi Tape to a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, punched the ‘Merry & Bright’ to use as the sentiment, and layered it on a slightly larger circle punched from Pop Tone Black Licorice cardstock.

Here’s one more angled shot so you can see the construction. And the best part is that it folds flat for mailing! ;)

Christmas Truck Box Card

9/30/22 Top 3 Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges

Hi everybody! I hope you’re having a great week and not working too hard! We are loving life out here in our happy place with gorgeous scenery and weather! Our new challenge launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #46 – Anything Christmas Goes! I am a certified Scan N Cut fiend and can’t seem to get enough of my machine, lol! I have made SO many fun 3-D projects this year and this box card created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Christmas Presents Truck Card cut file is one of them. How stinkin’ cute is this?!

I cut all the pieces from American Crafts Crimson cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock; CutCardStock Gold Glitter, Silver Glitter, Basis Brown, Basis Dark Red, Basis Black, Stardream Metallic Silver, and Royal Sundance Linen Emerald cardstock; POW Cricket Glitter cardstock, Basic Holiday 6×6 Cardstock Pad, and Christmas Holiday Print 6×6 Cardstock Pad. I stamped sentiments in black ink on the tailgate panel and back sentiment panel using the STAMPlorations Warm Hands Warm Hearts stamp set. I ran the side and tailgate panels through the Big Shot with a Sizzix Texture Fades Snowflake Pattern Embossing Folder for some fun texture. Then the major fun began… the assembly! I always love assembling 3-D projects and watching them come to life!

Here are angled and back shots.

And one more look… folded flat and ready to mail! This was a blast and could be taylored for any occasion by tweaking the elements a little bit (for example, omitting the tree and using birthday or anniversary papers for the presents)! So fun!

7/15/22 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!

Hey everybody, Happy Friday! Hope you had a terrific week! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #45 – Anything Christmas Goes! You know how I love me some fun folds… so I created this pretty open box card for our challenge this time using the Concord & 9th Stacks Base dies along with the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays stamps and dies! This scene is so much fun to create – this isn’t the first time I’ve used these stamps and dies, and it surely won’t be the last!

I die cut the base from CutCardStock Basis Blue and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, added tiny white dots using a Posca White paint pen, and assembled the base. I cut the remaining elements from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Dolphin, Bonsai, Basis Red, Curious Metallic Night, Royal Sundance Linen Emerald, Royal Sundance Linen Burgundy, Curious Metallic Aloe, Stardream Metallic Aquamarine, Curious Metallic Pink Quartz, Basis Teal, Basis Aqua, and Shadow Gray cardstock, and then assembled the houses. I added a few tiny iridescent gemstones to the background and then created the scene. The final touch was stamping the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Suede Shoes ink on the white banner, layering it on the blue banner, and adhering it to the front of the card.

Here’s an angled shot.

And one more peek… love the fact that box cards fold flat for mailing! I really love how this one turned out!

Happy Fall Box Card

Hi friends! Can you believe it’s the middle of the year already?! The months are just flying by! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #156 – Anything Goes! Box cards are at the top of my all-time favorites and this truck box card with all the pumpkins and leaves was super fun to create… I could smell Fall while I was making this one! This Fall Truck Box Card is yet another awesome cut file from Simply Crafty SVGs! I was on a truck ‘roll’ there for a bit and I believe I’ve created nearly all the truck box cards Sandy has designed!

I cut the truck body and panels from CutCardStock Basis Dark Orange, the tires from Basis Black, the back lights from Basis Red, the sentiment from Basis Brown, and the bumper and mirrors from Stardream Metallic Silver cardstock. I cut the pumpkins and leaves from Basis Green, Basis Dark Red, Basis Gold, Basis Orange, Pop-Tone Orange Fizz and Pop-Tone Tangy Orange. I added some texture by using the Sizzix Texture Fades Harlequin embossing folder on the side and back panels, and the Darice Chevron embossing folder on the tires.

I cut the back panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and stamped the Inspired By Stamping sentiment (sadly out of business) in Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake ink.

Another angled shot and one folded flat for mailing… so loving how this turned out! I’m definitely in my element when assembling these projects – not a care in the world and no clue what’s going on around me, lol! ;)

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I’ve been having some fun with my Scan N Cut, and the cut file for this oven box card is from My Scrap Chick. I actually had my daughter in mind when I got this cut file because she loves to cook! ;) This card features our Cooking Brads, Baking Brads and Mixer & Cup Brads and was so much fun putting together!

I cut the card base from CutCardStock Astrobrights Solar Yellow, and all the remaining pieces from CutCardStock Astrobrights Re-Entry Red, Basis Light Yellow, Basis Black and Basis Gray cardstock, along with Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. As I always mention, the greatest satisfaction I get is putting these box cards together and watching them come to life!

I drew markings on the clock with a Posca Black Paint pen. I adhered a mixing spoon brad and measuring cup brad to a piece of acetate so they would stand up on the cook top. I added two cookie sheet brads to the oven along with two oven mitts to the stove front.

I stamped a large sentiment from STAMPlorations in Memento Lady Bug ink on the back layered circle. This is a great all-occasion sentiment that could be used for just about any occasion.

And one more look… you know how much of box card fan I am, and this one was totally fun with all these awesome brads!

Happy Father’s Day Lantern

4/20/22 Top 3 Winner at Fab ‘n’ Funky Challenges!
4/30/22 DT Favorite Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a cool Father’s Day Lantern box card featuring our Deer Brads, Pine Tree Brads and Sun/Cloud Brads. Yep, you got it… I’ve been playing with my Scan N Cut! I have tons of cut files on my laptop and when I came across this one (looking for a different one, of course), the light bulb came on and I got to work!

I cut the main card base from CutCardStock Basis Red, and all the rest of the pieces from Papertrey Ink Spring Rain cardstock, 80# Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Year Round Messages stamp set in Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink, trimmed it and set it aside.

As I was assembling the layers for the background scene, I added Deer Brads, Pine Tree Brads and Sun/Cloud Brads, and then finished the assembly. I added a jute rope bow at the top and adhered the stamped sentiment at the bottom.

Here are a couple angled shots. The back has a plain panel to write a custom message (if desired) and sign. And of course, this is a box card and folds flat for mailing. ;)

Happy Valentine’s Day Birdhouse Box Card

3/5/22 Top 3 at Crafty Calendar Challenge!
3/28/22 DT Favorite at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hey everybody! I’m back on this fine Saturday morning with my second project share for the CutCardStock My Sweet Valentine Blog Hop going on today and tomorrow! Be sure to hop along with us for a chance to win a $40 CutCardStock gift card! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve been having the best time playing with my Scan N Cut and thoroughly enjoyed creating the two Valentines from our amazing Basis cardstock for the hop. As mentioned in my last post, I’m showcasing both cards separately so I can enter them into some challenges. I am a fun fold geek and box cards run right there at the top of my favorite list! This card features lots of hearts in various forms and sizes, an adorable birdhouse adorned with red bling, embossed panels, and two of the cutest love birds ever perched in front of their house behind a white picket fence!

I cut all the pieces from Basis 80# Red cardstock, Basis 80# Pink cardstock, Basis 80# Black cardstock, Basis 80# White cardstock and Basis 80# Gold cardstock. Picking out the colors of cardstock is always fun when creating with the Scan N Cut, but I always look forward to the assembly the most! And the sentiment on the front of this card was also printed with the Scan N Cut using the draw feature which I’ve used several times and have grown to love!

Here’s a shot from a different angle. The back (which I didn’t photograph) is completely blank with plenty of room to write a custom message and sign.

And one more peek of the card folded flat for mailing. Another super cute box card that I’m totally in love with!
