For Someone Special

Hi friends! Happy Friday – I hope you’re having a wonderful week! We’re two weeks into January already… yikes! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! One of my projects was a top pick over at Cut It Up Challenges at the end of December and I was invited to guest design in an upcoming challenge so here I am sharing my GD inspiration project for Challenge – 243 Anything Goes which is a super adorable crayon box card! I am such a fiend when it comes to awesome cut files and putting these fun projects together! I was on an SVG design team for 2-1/2 years and since stepping down almost two years ago, I’ve really missed it! I seem to be getting my Scan N Cut out of the cabinet for crafty plays more and more often these days, lol!

I cut the pieces from CutCardStock Basis Gold, Basis Green, Basis Orange, Basis Red, Basis Navy, Pop-Tone Grape Jelly, Bonsai Green and Camomile cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, and American Crafts Marine cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from Prickley Pear Stamps Truck stamp set in green ink on the tag for the front.

I absolutely love putting these kinds of projects together! Box cards are among my all-favorites, and this one was particularly fun! I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Color My World stamp set in green ink on the panel for the back.

And one more look… I’m just totally smitten! So happy to have scored the guest gig at Cut It Up Challenges where I was able to share this!

Hey everybody! Top of the morning to you! I hope you’re having a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I shared a box card that we sent to our youngest grandson yesterday, so today I’m sharing an another box card that we sent to our youngest granddaughter at the same time. This adorable Owl Box Card is another one from My Scrap Chick and turned out so stinkin’ cute with the little owl peeking out of the hole in the tree! And of course, I lucked out having the perfect stamp set to use!

I cut all the pieces from Stampin’ Up Chocolate Chip cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Brown, Basis Light Brown, Basis Green, Basis Black, Basis White, and Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock. I used the Stampin’ Up Hardwood background stamp on the tree layering pieces, stamped in Catherine Pooler Icing On The Cake ink.

I assembled the card, stamped the sentiment in black ink using the Taylored Expressions Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set, and added a few green Dot Sparklers using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick.

Here are a couple more angled shots.

And one more peek… folded flat for mailing. Box cards are just all-around fun, and the fact that they fold flat for mailing is a bonus!

Hi everybody! Wishing you all a terrific Tuesday! Only four more sleeps… and yes, you know what I’m talking about, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve stopped in today to share a T-Rex pop-up card that I created for our youngest grandboy a couple months ago. But first of all, I’m sure you’ve noticed that my blog looks a little different this morning! I love change (which is in direct contradiction to my Libra personality) and have been eyeballing a different WordPress theme for a couple months now and decided that this morning was launch time! I love it because it’s so clean and crisp! Okay, back to this adorable card that I created with a cut file from My Scrap Chick. I know I’ve mentioned before how fun it is assembling 3-D projects and watching them come to life!

I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Basis Teal, Basis Aqua, Basis Orange, Basis Brown, Dolphin, and Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock. I had no dinosaur patterned paper so I found the Design Bundles Digital Dinosaur Friends Pattern Pack online which I cut the layering panels from. I assembled the card and added the sentiment from Brutus Monroe Conversation Clippings Prehistoric Party.

Here’s an angled shot.

And one more peek… folded flat for mailing. I absolutely love how this turned out!

I cut the base from CutCardStock Basis Navy cardstock, and the rest of the pieces from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Magenta cardstock CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, CutCardStock Dolphin cardstock and Colorbok Seeing Dots cardstock. Then the fun began of assembling the card! I added the sentiment using die cut letters and some Pink Jewel Bling.

Season’s Greetings To You & Yours

12/5/21 Top 5 at Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenges!

Happy Hump Day, y’all! I hope you’re having a wonderful week! I’m thrilled to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring red, white and green cardstock which is all on sale this month so be sure to stock up for your holiday crafting! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have one of the easiest card designs ever to share with you today using Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock, Basis Red cardstock, Silk Glitter Opulent Opal cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, Basis Green cardstock and Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock! While I used a die set with a different name for this design team project, I found handwritten measurements for an ‘open box card’ (with angled sides) in my tutorial arsenal and typed up a tutorial that I’ll share. The only differences between the die set and my handwritten instructions are the shape and the width of the box layer strips. And, of course, the sky is the limit with regard to occasion, embellishments and sentiments. ;)

I die cut the card base and box layer strips from Silk Glitter Opulent Opal cardstock and assembled the card. This is where the lightbulb came on… this assembled piece looked familiar so I sat down with my tutorial files (about 6″ worth) and looked through most of the files until I found measurements I had written down (who knows how long ago) for the open box card. If you’re interested, I’ve added the open box card tutorial HERE. Bear in mind that the box layer strips on this project using the die set are slightly narrower but achieve the same result, and the shape is different. I die cut the three poinsettia flowers from Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock, the poinsettia leaves from Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock, the greenery and berries from Basis Red cardstock and Basis Green cardstock, and the flower centers from Basis Gold cardstock. I assembled the poinsettias and set them aside. I die cut the sentiment from Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and again from Basis Green cardstock and layered them together with just a tad bit of the dark green showing beneath the red. I stamped the sentiment in green ink on a Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock scrap and die cut it with a stitched rectangle die, and layered it on a slightly larger stitched rectangle die cut from Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I adhered one of the poinsettias on the top of the sentiment and adhered the piece to the left side, the second poinsettia to the right side and the third poinsettia in the middle.

Here is a shot from overhead so you can see the construction (which, as mentioned above, is the same as the typical box card but with an open front), and another shot of the card folded flat for mailing in a standard A2 size envelope.

And a few more peeks of the finished project… so loving how this turned out! Let me know if you end up making an open box card using my measurements! This is definitely a fun one! I’ve made several over the years but didn’t use any of them as design team projects so they didn’t get posted on my blog. This design makes beautiful sympathy, birthday, anniversary, and of course Christmas cards!

Friends Are Flowers Envelope Box Card

Hi friends! A very Happy Friday to you – I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this afternoon with a Trinity Stamps Ambassador inspiration project that I finished up yesterday afternoon which I’m super stoked to share! If you know me, you know I absolutely love fun folds, and box cards are at the top of the list of my favorites! Trinity Stamps recently released their Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit and I had a blast stamping, coloring and die cutting all the blooms in this kit for my envelope box card! This is my own design that I created with my WRMK Envelope Punch Board and this one does not fold flat for mailing like the typical box card (which I did for more stability) but I plan to work on an envelope box card design that does fold flat, so stay tuned! ;)

I cut the envelope base from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, scored and punched it with the WRMK Envelope Punch Board, and covered the flaps with gingham paper. Using the Summer Blooms Floral Papercrafting Kit, I stamped the blooms (in multiples) on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies (also included in the kit), and arranged them in layers on the front and inside of the box. I stamped a sentiment from the Friends Are Flowers stamp set, trimmed it and layered it on black cardstock. The final step was adding gemstones from the Summer Sparkles Embellishment Mix (also included in the kit) with the Trinity Pick-Up Stick which really added some pretty sparkle.

Looking at the overhead shot, you can see there are three layers of blooms. I embellished the back of the box with a strip of the pink gingham paper and a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. Using stamps from Supporting Script Sentiments stamp set and Just For You stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in black and pink ink.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! It took a little while to stamp, color and die cut all the blooms, but it was well worth it!

No one’s butter than YOU!

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Things are status quo here. The hubs had a pinched ulnar nerve released in his left arm several days ago and is doing well. I have to keep reminding him to take it easy and not over use his arm… you know how men are! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun birthday popcorn machine box card featuring our Popcorn & Ticket Brads and Red Jewel Bling! This was definitely a fun one! My Scan N Cut lives in a cabinet to keep it from getting dusty, and when I bring it out, I typically cut multiple files which keep me busy assembling for weeks to come. ;)

I cut the box card base from CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, and all the elements from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, Hygloss Silver Foil cardstock, and K & Co. Essentials Dark designer paper. I assembled the card and added a stamped sentiment, a Ticket Brad and Red Jewel Bling.

Here’s a shot of the back showing an additional sentiment and a Popcorn Brad on the signature panel.

And one more peek… what a super fun card! As you well know, I absolutely LOVE box cards and I really enjoyed creating this one, and these brads were just the ‘ticket!’

You Rock!

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having an amazing weekend! It’s been quiet here and I’ve gotten a little studio time in while hubby is tending to his garden. We are both in awe over his green thumbs! We had air fried green tomatoes for dinner last night and they were amazing! We have a friend who cans every Summer, and she and Ed have worked out an agreement where Ed shares garden produce with her which she cans and shares some back with us. Love it! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! Today I’m sharing a fun masculine birthday card I created for my musician son (who plays guitar and drums) that I’m entering into The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge. The theme is ‘Make It Masculine’ and this is perfect! The challenge ends tonight so I better get on the stick and get it entered! ;)

I used My Scrap Chick’s fun Rock Band Box Card cut file with my Scan N Cut. I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Gold cardstock, Hygloss Silver Foil cardstock and Hygloss Gold Foil cardstock. I stamped the front sentiment in black ink using The Project Bin Jukebox Birthday stamp set.

I stamped back sentiment using the Inspired By Stamping Little Phrases stamp set. L-O-V-E the bull horns! :D

And one more look… this was a blast putting together! Box cards are one of my all-time favorites because they always pack a punch and the recipients always love them! Plus they can be displayed for a long while after they are opened! ;)

The smell of Christmas goodies

Ahoy, Mateys… okay, this is my last post for today. I don’t particularly like having to write so many blog posts (with interruptions from the hubs and cats) but I do enjoy sharing my projects! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! This adorable apron box card is for The Outlawz Festive Fridays Challenge where the themes to choose from are Christmas, Thinking of You, Anything Goes or Congratulations, and I chose the Christmas theme this time. Isn’t this apron just the cutest?!

I cut the pieces for the box card from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, and The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad, and assembled the card.

I typed the sentiment in brown font, trimmed it and layered it on brown cardstock. I found it handwritten in my stuff and I don’t know who to credit; I’m sure I found it online at some point and thought it was cute, so I jotted it down. It’s perfect for this box card!

And one more look… this is so stinkin’ cute, I can’t stand it! It’s already slated to go to a dear someone who loves to cook! ;)

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad

Cycle-Riding Santa!

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great week! We’re on the downside to the weekend and time is zooming by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in this morning to share a project I’m entering into The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge where SheepSki Designs is sponsoring and the theme is the song or rhyme “The Open Road.” My inspiration came literally from the word ‘travel’ so I decided to share a cycle-riding Santa box card that I made with my Scan N Cut. What a hoot! He’s definitely ridin’ in for the challenge, lol!

I sure do love me some box cards and made quite a few for a variety of occasions while I had my Scan N Cut out several weeks ago. I cut the pieces for this one from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutcardStock Basis Black cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock scrap, and Hygloss Silver Foil cardstock.

I cut the sentiment panel on the back from CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, and stamped the sentiment from The Project Bin Mid Century Christmas stamp set. So perfect!

And one more look… so smitten with this one! He’s so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! The best part about box cards is they fold flat for mailing!

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutcardStock Basis Black cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock scrap, Hygloss Silver Foil cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock
