I Love Fall

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Mini slimlines (in 3-1/2″ x 6″ size that are legal to mail) are my new favorite kind of card to make these days, and I created a gorgeous Fall card featuring our Pumpkin Brads, Leaf Brads and Orange Pearl Bling! I got some new double-sided patterned paper packs that I’ve been itching to use! Plus, if you know me very well, then you know that I typically don’t stick to seasonal crafting… I’m all over the place and create whatever pops into my head! It’s Winter, so what’s wrong with a Fall card, I ask?! ;)

I cut a side-folding mini slim card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and Stamp Anniething Autumn Life 6×6 double-sided papers. I used a corner punch on the two layering panels and adhered them together. I cut wide embellishing strips from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock, layered them together and adhered them horizontally across the front of the card, and adhered the panel to the card front. Using the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, I die cut an element for the front on which I stamped the sentiment from The Project Bin New Leaf stamp set in brown ink, added Pumpkin Brads and Leaf Brads, and adhered it to the card front. To finish it off, I added some Orange Pearl Bling.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock and punched the corners with the corner punch. I stamped the sentiment (from the same TPB stamp set) in brown and orange inks, and layered it on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Tangy Orange cardstock.

And one more look… these pumpkin and leaf brads sure do make a gorgeous Fall card and are some of my favorites in the store!

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!

Shell, Yeah!

Hey y’all! It’s a beautiful 42 degrees here in southwestern Colorado – the sun’s out and the sky is blue! Couldn’t ask for a better day! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! There’s a whole lotta fun going on over at The Outlawz Challenges and I’ve created a cute card to enter into the current Sunday Songs and Rhymes Challenge! Polkadoodles is the sponsor this time and we were given the Mermaid Song to find inspiration from, so I thought it only fitting to use the Polkadoodles Winnie Mermaid Kisses digital image which I combined with the fun Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock and Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock. I adhered the metallic blue cardstock to the card base. I inked the watercolor cardstock with Ranger stormy sky and chipped sapphire distress inks, cut four waves from the panel using the My Favorite Things Ocean Motion Die-namics and adhered them together in horizontal strips. I added an Eyelet Outlet shell brad and adhered the waves to the card front. I stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set which I trimmed and flagged with a square punch, and adhered it to the bottom of the waves. I printed the pre-colored version of the image on CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX Die-namics and adhered it to the card front. The finishing touch was the addition of some blue bumpy bling from Eyelet Outlet.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Vista cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same Trinity Stamps Summertime Sentiments stamp set in Catherine Pooler Cove Blue ink and layered the panel on the metallic blue cardstock.

And one more peek… such an adorable image that I’m glad I remembered I had. I believe this is only the second time I’ve used it.

Oh Happy Day

1/14/22 Top 3 Winner at Alphabet Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Just got home from getting my yearly mammogram, our COVID boosters, a quick Walmart run for cat food and treats, and a nice lunch, so it’s been a busy morning. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have some awesome news… I’ve joined the Tape Runner design team! Woo-hoo, so excited about this opportunity! That said, I’ve popped in this afternoon to share a retirement card that I created yesterday as my debut Tape Runner DT inspiration project. This permanent double-sided adhesive tape was just the ticket to adhere the panels on this card. And I’m amazed at how awesome this card turned out – it’s one of those cards that just kind of made itself… I couldn’t have gotten the inks to settle where they did if I had tried a thousand times! With inking and smooshing, no two card panels ever turn out the same, and it’s always fun to see what you’re gonna get!

All panels were adhered with Tape Runner. Wet glue was used only to adhere narrow strips. I cut a standard A2 size landscape top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock. I cut a panel from Ranger Distress Watercolor cardstock and did the smooshing technique with Ranger fossilized amber, cracked pistachio and mermaid lagoon distress inks, drying with my heat tool between smooshes. I stamped the tree image in black ink on the inked panel and did the mirror stamping technique on a piece of acetate to give the trees the appearance of reflecting off the water. I carefully lifted some of the distress ink (with tape) beneath the trees and colored the area in with alcohol markers to look like dirt. I stamped the sentiment in black ink, adhered the panel to the black cardstock layer and then to the card base. OMGoodness, I sure do love this Tape Runner!

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a leftover strip trimmed from the inked panel on the front and two strips of CutCardStock Basis Black cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… super happy with how this card turned out! And you gotta know that I’m super stoked to be promoting the best tape runner on the market!

Wishing You a Magical Day

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great weekend and your weather is nice enough to get out! We got a little more snow yesterday, flurries for most of the day, and it sure is gorgeous! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Today I’m sharing the project I created for The January Outlawz Freebie/Progressive Challenge where our sponsor is All Dressed Up Stamps, so come on over and play! We were gifted the adorable Rainbow Girl digital image that I used to create a sweet birthday card.

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I also cut half layering panels and an embellishing strip from coordinating papers in the Crate Paper Wonder 6×6 Cardstock Pad. I adhered the half panels to the card base and the embellishing strip (layered on CutCardStock Basis Coral cardstock) horizontally at the seam. I printed the digital image on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, cut it with a Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die, and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and alcohol markers. Using slightly larger Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Small die and Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers die, I die cut layers which I adhered beneath the image from CutCardStock Astrobrights Re-Entry Red cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Coral cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley Pear Stamps Magical Enchanted Day stamp set in green ink and added Creative Memories Party Time pink enamel hearts.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover patterned paper strip and a CutCardStock Basis Coral cardstock strip. I stamped the sentiment from the Prickley pear Stamps Scalloped Ovals 4-Floral stamp set in green ink and layered the panel on coral cardstock.

And one more peek… an adorable image that made such a sweet birthday card!

Happy Mother’s Day Dress

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! 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 amazing DT inspiration project! I’m already in Mother’s Day mode so I created a pretty Mother’s Day card featuring our Clear Jewel Bling Strips, White Pearl Bling Strips, Brown Enamel Dots and Glitter Brown Skinny Washi Tape! I feel a like Scan N Cut junkie… I can’t get enough of it! I know I have mentioned that it lives in a cabinet to keep the dust off of it but it’s been out on the table for this crafty session the longest length of time since I’ve owned it, lol! This card was SO much to cut and assemble!

I cut all the pieces from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Felt Natural cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, Hygloss Gold Metallic Foil cardstock and Stampin’ Up Falling In Love DSP. I stamped the sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh Happy Mother’s Day stamp set in Catherine Pooler Over Coffee ink. I added Clear Jewel Bling Strips to the dress which I colored with alcohol markers, pearls from a White Pearl Bling Strip around the neck of the dress form which I also colored with alcohol markers. I added several Brown Enamel Dots to the background, Glitter Brown Skinny Washi Tape strips down each side and a brown ribbon bow to complete the front.

There were pieces in the cut file for the inside as well, and I used an additional coordinating patterned paper for those. I added a tiny magnet closure. It’s always fun picking out the cardstock and papers, but it’s even more fun assembling these projects!

And one more look… I am absolutely smitten with this card! I see more of these in my future for a variety of occasions, and of course, using all the Eyelet Outlet bling really takes it to the next level!

Happy Everything

Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start and you’re not working too hard! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the CutCardStock blog today with an awesome DT inspiration project featuring Astrobrights cardstock which is on sale this month – be sure to stock up on some of these amazing colors! I used Astrobrights 80# Re-Entry Red cardstock and Astrobrights 80# Solar Yellow cardstock on this friendship card with an alcohol ink background that, when paired with the Astrobrights cardstock, has a little tone-on-tone going on which turned out so cool!

I created the alcohol ink background several days prior to making the card. I used Ranger Poppyfield, Sunset Orange and Sunshine Yellow alcohol inks along with a few drops of Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution, and just before it was dry, I pressed a piece of Spellbinders Gold Glimmer Hot Foil onto it which left small bits of the gold foil. I used the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Dies to die cut the background from the inked panel. When it came time to make the card, I cut a standard A2 size landscape side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and a layering panel from Astrobrights 80# Re-Entry Red cardstock which I adhered to the card base.
I layered the inked die cut panel on Astrobrights 80# Solar Yellow cardstock, and adhered it to the card base. Using the CUTplorations Happy Everything Phrase Die, I die cut the sentiment three times from Astrobrights 80# Re-Entry Red cardstock and once from Astrobrights 80# Solar Yellow cardstock. I adhered the three red die cuts together and the yellow one behind as a shadow, and adhered them to the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from Astrobrights 80# Re-Entry Red cardstock which I adhered to the inside of the card base. I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip trimmed from the inked panel and then die cut it using the CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Nesting Dies. I added a narrow strip of Astrobrights 80# Solar Yellow cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set in red ink. I adhered the panel to a yellow cardstock layer and adhered it to the inside of the card base.

And one more peek… so happy with how this turned out! The alcohol ink colors matched the Astrobright colors almost perfectly!

Merry Christmas slimline

Hi everybody! Happy Saturday and Happy New Year! Today is the 1st day of the month which is always a busy blog day! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our first challenge of the new year launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #42 – Anything Christmas Goes! Our challenges are always Anything Christmas Goes, and I created a pretty slimline in my favorite color of green using stamps from Prickley Pear Stamps and an assortment of dies!

I cut my go-to size of 9″ x 3-3/4″ slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, along with a layering panel from a green plaid pattern from the Christmas Print 6×6 Cardstock Pad. Using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Square STAX, I die cut three squares from CutCardStock Bonsai Green cardstock. I also cut three scalloped squares from CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX and an embellishing strip punched from black glitter paper using a scalloped edge punch. I stamped images from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them. I layered the die cut squares together, adhered the stamped and colored images, and adhered them to the card front. I added the black glitter paper scalloped border across the bottom, and the final touch was adding small black gemstones to the squares (which turned into diamond shapes, lol).

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover plaid pattern strip used on the front, a strip of CutCardStock Bonsai Green cardstock and a strip of black glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment from the same Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on the green cardstock. I had one extra stamped, colored and fussy-cut image which I adhered to the inside.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! This stamp set is so versatile and fun to use!

Hi friends! Happy New Year! Can’t believe 2022 is here already – last year literally flew by! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #57 – Anything Goes + optional Foiling. If you’re in for playing the optional twist, we’d love to see your project using a laminator/Minc machine, foiled cardstock, aluminum foil, etc. I used gold metallic foil cardstock and Deco Foil Rainglow Transfer Sheet for my birthday card.

I cut a standard A2 top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. Using the Hero Arts Circles & Squares stencil along with Deco Foil Rainglow Transfer Sheets, Deco Foil Stencil Pal and Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo, I created the background for the front of the card and then die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Layers.

I used the My Favorite Things Bold Beautiful Die-namics and die cut the focal element from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and Hygloss Gold Metallic Foil cardstock, piecing the red cardstock into the gold negative spaces. I added the word ‘you’ die cut from the gold metallic foil cardstock using the Sizzix Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower Thinlits and adhered it to the bottom right.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and die cut it with the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Layers. I embellished the panel with a leftover strip of the foiled panel on the front, a strip of CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and a strip of gold metallic foil cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Waffle Flower Essential Sentiments stamp set in red ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! Foiling is so stinkin’ fun, and this rainbow foil is absolutely gorgeous!

I Miss You twist & pop

Hi peeps! Well, 2022 has arrived in what seems like a very short amount of time, lol! It seems like January 1st of 2021 was just yesterday! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #66 – Anything Goes! I’ve been on a Scan N Cut kick here lately and have cut quite a few files for design team projects. This adorable twist and pop card was created with a cut file from My Scrap Chick.

I cut all the pieces from American Crafts Sunflower, White and Stone cardstock, as well as CutCardStock Basis Red, Basis Aqua, Basis Green, Basis Navy, Pop-Tone Tangy Orange and Shadow Gray cardstock. The sentiment is from The Project Bin Milky Way stamp set which I stamped in Catherine Pooler Juniper Mist ink.

Then the fun began putting it together. Twist and pop cards really are a lot of fun, and being able to cut them electronically rather than measuring and scoring manually is the bomb!

The inside sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in the same dark blue ink.

And one more look… this was a super fun project. I can literally sit for hours putting these kinds of cards together!
