Merry Christmas Step Card Shaker

11/26/21 Top 3 at Crafty Catz!
12/1/21 Winner at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog!

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! Seems I’m always in Christmas mode so I created a classic step card and added a snowflake shaker element which I filled with our Snowflake Sequins. I used clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish the snowflakes on the front of the shaker.

I used a step card die set to cut the card base from CutCardStock Basis Navy cardstock along with layers from CutCardStock Curious Metallic White Silver cardstock and Hot Off The Press Snowfall 6×6 double-sided papers which I adhered to the card base. I built the shaker element with the Hot Off The Press Snowflakes Ornament Chipboard, using the Snowfall patterned paper for the inside and added several additional die cut rings (using two circle dies) cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock to make it just a tad deeper and then filled it with our Snowflake Sequins. I painted the outside rim and edge silver with a Posca Silver paint pen and colored the snowflakes on the front of the shaker with alcohol markers in blue tones, adding clear gemstones from our Clear Jewel Bling and Clear Bling Strips to embellish them. I adhered a tied snowflake ribbon to the top and added a sentiment stamped in blue ink on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock from the Trinity Stamps A Sentiment For (Almost) Everything stamp set to complete the card.

Here are a few more shots of this awesome card.

And one more peek of the card folded flat for mailing. I sure do love how this turned out! Shakers are among my all-time favorites!

Merry Christmas for The Outlawz!

Hi friends! Well, I’m back on this fine Thursday morning posting another card for The Outlawz Challenges! I just couldn’t stay away, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m entering this Christmas card into the Festive Fridays Challenge where SheepSki Designs is our sponsor this fortnight, so come on over and play! I CASE’d my own card from several months ago – used the same dies and papers but created a totally different design. These dies and papers really work well together!

I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and diagonally-cut patterned paper and glitter paper pieces from the Christmas Print 6×6 paper pad which I adhered to the red cardstock panel with a narrow strip of red cardstock adhered at the seam. Using the Birch Press Design Wreath Layer Set, I cut the pieces from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock and CutCardStock Canvas Texture Galax 4×6 cardstock, and assembled the wreath. Using the Sizzix Christmas Ribbon Thinlits, I die cut one sentiment from CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and one from CutCardStock Canvas Texture Galax 4×6 cardstock, and adhered them together with just a peek of the green showing underneath the red. I adhered the wreath to the card front and then the sentiment. I added clear rhinestones to the wreath along with a ribbon bow to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock and the patterned paper and glitter paper from the Christmas Print 6×6 paper pad. I stamped the sentiment in dark green ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more look… I really love both of these die sets and see lots of use out of them in the coming years!

Thank You note card

11/26/21 Featured Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges!
11/28/21 Sweet Pick at Cupcake Inspirations!

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week! It’s turned quite chilly here – a mere 21 degrees when we got up at 3:30 AM this morning – and we love it! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I am once again making time to play in The Outlawz Challenges, and have this pretty thank you note card to share in the Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge. Our sponsor this fortnight is Makenna Kroulik so come on over and play! We were given the song “Autumn Serenade” for inspiration, and these gorgeous leaves in the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf 2 stamp set really spoke to me. What a beautiful background for a thank you note card, and we always need thank you cards in our stash!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, along with an additional layering panel from Papertrey Ink Terracotta Tile cardstock, and rounded the four corners on all of them. I stamped the background using the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf 2 stamp set in various colors of Ranger archival inks, and layered the panel on the terracotta tile cardstock panel and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it and rounded the corners. I layered it on a scrap of the terracotta tile cardstock and adhered it to the center of the panel. I finished the front with random dots of Crystal Drops over the background piece and both sides of the sentiment.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, embellished it with a wide strip of Papertrey Ink Terracotta Tile cardstock, and layered it on a terracotta tile cardstock panel. I left the panel blank, leaving plenty of room to write a custom thank you message.

And one more peek… so loving how this background turned out! These stamps are just gorgeous and created such a beautiful background!

life is better with sandy feet

12/1/21 Top Pick at Christmas Crafts All Year ‘Round!

Hi everyone! It’s Hump Day already and I hope you’re having a great week! Time is flying by! 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 more of our red, white and green cardstock that’s on sale this month! If you haven’t already, be sure to grab some for your holiday craft projects! I created a beach Christmas card – and I think it might only be the second one I’ve ever created! Why is that?! Stretching those stamp sets and getting a little more out of them is so much fun! ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock along with a layering panel cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and a wide strip cut from CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft paper. I stamped the waves on the white cardstock using the Hero Arts Color Layering Waves stamp set and then lightly inked the sky with Ranger Stormy Sky and Shaded Lilac distress inks. I tore the kraft paper to make the sand shore line. I stamped the Adirondack Chair on CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock using the Dare 2B Artzy Flip Flops stamp set, heat embossed it with Ranger Clear Embossing Powder (with flecks of Hero Arts White Embossing Powder in it), and cut it with the coordinating Flip Flop & Adirondack Chair die set. I stamped the sentiment (also from the Hero Arts stamp set) in dark blue ink, adhered the chair and added a Santa hat brad before adhering the panel to the card base.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of CutCardStock Basis Green cardstock and CutCardStock Basis Red cardstock, using a stitched borders die on the wide red cardstock strip for a little interest. I stamped the sentiment in dark blue ink and layered the panel on red cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! And it’s already ear-marked for a super awesome beach-loving friend! ;)

Hi fun fold

Howdy peeps! I hope your week is off to a great start! I have a kitten update which I’ll keep short: We took our little guy, Fogg, to the vet yesterday where he’ll likely stay for a couple days. The vet feels like overall he has a slightly better chance of survival than his sister (Stormie) had, so all we can do is continue to pray. We sure would appreciate some prayers from you all if you are the praying type. <3 Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have another card to share this morning that I created from the Jack and Lily Collection, which is the newest release over at Prickley Pear Stamps! Isn’t Lily adorable?! The Jack and Lily characters were created in the likeness of the owers’ real-life grandkids. And you know me and fun folds… I can’t get enough of them! I thought this teepee card showcased Lily perfectly with the pastel colors!

I cut the teepee card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with layering panels from Papertrey Ink Green Parakeet cardstock and My Favorite Things Sweet Celebration and Hot Off The Press Sweet Pea patterned papers. I assembled the card base, adhered the cardstock and patterned paper layers, and added a magnet closure. Using the Hello Lily stamp set, I stamped Lily and her clothing and other elements on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers (and added Ranger Glossy Accents to her rain boots), and cut them with the coordinating Hello Lily die set. I created a rosette with the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes die and stamped the Hi sentiment on the center circle. I created the birthday sentiment on the computer and printed it on white cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the back panel. I adhered Lily to a plain die cut and then adhered her and the rosette to the front of the card. I added gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix and Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick to complete the card.

Here’s one more look at the card folded flat for mailing. I so love how this turned out! I can only imagine how adorable this child is in real life!

Do I really need more shoes?!

Hey, everybody! Well, another weekend has come and gone, and here we are facing Monday again! But that’s okay as far as I’m concerned… a crafty day is a good day, and it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Those who know me know that I am passionate about two things: (1) fun folds and (2) shoes! ;) Well, actually three things: (1) cats (we rescue), (2) fun folds and (3) shoes! When I married my kids’ dad many moons ago, I had nearly 60 pairs and he just couldn’t understand it, lol! I don’t have nearly that many now but I still reminisce about the good ol’ days when I had a pair in every color imaginable to coordinate with every outfit. So out came the Acrylic Tag Album to document those memories! This was a fun project!

I cut different colors and patterns of paper for every page, hand-cut in a whimsical fashion, leaving just a tad bit of the clear acrylic showing on all edges. I die cut labels and stitched ovals for each page and layered the white stitched ovals on the label die cuts. I stamped different shoes (including boots and flip flops) with sentiments on the ovals and colored them with alcohol markers to coordinate with the patterned paper on that page. I created hole reinforcements with two circle punches and tied the pages together with purple wrinkled ribbon embellished with a shoe charm from my stash. I added tiny iridescent gemstones to each page to finish the album.

One more look… so loving how this turned out! Great selection of shoes, boots and flip flops – had to cover all bases, lol!

Wish Big

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend. We are having issues with our two latest 10-week-old kitten rescues – we lost our baby girl night before last and then last night our baby boy stopped eating/drinking and started wheezing. We’re praying that it’s just a respiratory thing that will go away with an antibiotic. I typically don’t post sad stuff but I am having a really hard time with this. If you are the praying type, we’d appreciate some prayers for our little guy now. Please and thank you. <3 Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in to share another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release called the Jack and Lily Collection which was created after the owners’ grandkids. I used the Hello Lily stamp set and coordinating Hello Lily die set to create this adorable birthday card in a fun file folder style. File folder cards are super easy to create with a WRMK Envelope Punch Board, Fiskars 12″ SureCut Paper Trimmer and a corner rounder.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel and embellishing strip cut from patterned paper which I layered together. I added two strips of washi tape for a little interest and then adhered the patterned paper panel to the card base. I stamped Lily and her clothing and other elements from the Hello Lily stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers (and added Ranger Glossy Accents to her rain boots), and cut them with the coordinating Hello Lily die set. I adhered them to the card front along with a die cut sentiment from CUTplorations Skinny Sentiments. The final touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Aquamarine Ripple Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick.

I cut the inside panel from the patterned paper and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I cut a panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a coordinating patterned paper strip and two strips of washi tape, and adhered it to the card base. The final touch was adding a STAMPlorations Happy Happy Clear Sticker for the sentiment.

And one more look… really loving how this turned out! There’s nothing more fun than these adorable images on a file folder style card!

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! I created a super fun Envelope Box Card featuring our Bumble Bee Brads and Pink Jewel Bling! I love my Scan N Cut and I always cut several projects when I take it out of the cabinet for a crafty session, and this card was one from the latest batch. I really enjoyed this!

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. I added several Bumble Bee Brads and then added more Pink Jewel Bling to the flowers.

Here’s a shot from another angle.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! I can’t say enough about all the fun products at Eyelet Outlet! They really bring a project to life!

welcome fall mini album

11/19/21 Top 4 at Alphabet Challenge Blog!
11/26/21 Top Rocker at 613 Avenue Create!

Hi friends! Happy Hump Day! We’ve had several vet visits over the past week and one of our most recently rescued 10-week-old kittens has been at the vet since Monday morning. We’re praying for a good outcome, and if you’re the praying type, we’d appreciate some prayers. Please and thank you. <3 Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! We’re still loving our Fall weather out here (even though it gets pretty darn chilly at night) and I thought it only appropriate to share a super cute little mini album with you today, documenting a trip to Silverton, CO, several years ago in October, not long after we moved out here in May. The changing of the leaves in Colorado is just breath-taking!

I’ve had this adorable set of Sizzix Mini Album Thinlits in my stash for a while and had never used it, so I thought it would be a good time to play! I cut the mini album base from Cardstock Warehouse Brown Box Kraft cardstock and all the layering panels for the pages from Nikki Sivils Tree Love 6×6 Mini Pad (an oldie in my paper stash). I printed the photos from my phone onto glossy photo paper, cut them with My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX Die-namics and set them aside. Using the same set of Mini Album Thinlits, I cut the elements for each page from CutCardStock Basis Dark Red cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone Hot Fudge cardstock, and Nikki Sivils Tree Love 6×6 Mini Pad. I added a leaf charm on a piece of jute cord tied in a bow to hold the album together, added the title on the front (cut from the Brown Box Kraft with the Sizzix Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower Thinlits), and then finished it up with some gold flat-back pearls. As you can imagine, the most fun was putting it together… I’m so smitten! I absolutely love how it turned out!

Friends we will always be

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend! Our weather couldn’t be any nicer considering we’ve already had our first snowfall several weeks ago! The temps have been glorious over the past several days! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have another sample to share that I created for the new release over at Prickley Pear Stamps! I’ve already mentioned in previous posts that the owners’ son and daughter-in-law have kids named Jack and Lily, and the new Jack and Lily Collection is all about them, but this friendship card depicts them as friends rather than siblings. I used the Hello Lily stamp set and Hello Jack stamp set along with the coordinating Hello Lily die set and Hello Jack die set. Not only are they adorable individually, but they are super cute when paired together! And aren’t they just as cute as can be barefoot in the grass with Jack flying his kite?!

I cut a square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a panel cut from a digital cloud background that I printed on my computer which I adhered to the card base. Using the Stitched Scalloped Border die set, I cut a hill in the distance from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock as well as some die cut grass from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock to add to the scene. Using the Hello Lily stamp set and Hello Jack stamp set as well as the coordinating Hello Lily die set and Hello Jack die set, I stamped, colored and die cut the characters and elements, and adhered them to the card front. I stamped the sun from the Noah’s Ark stamp set on CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock and adhered it to the upper left corner. I drew a kite and tails, colored them and fussy cut them. I adhered them to the card front along with a piece of silver thread as the kite string. I added a couple epoxy flowers and a sentiment from the Blobby Flowers stamp set stamped in black ink to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of green gingham patterned paper and narrow strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Blobby Flowers 2 stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on green cardstock.

And one more look… I’m so smitten! This card turned out so cute! I’ve always been intimidated with the creation of scenes but it’s not really that hard to do when you have the right stamps and dies!
