From our pumpkin patch to yours…

Hi everyone! Are you having any of this cooler weather where you are? Fall has finally arrived here – it’s my favorite time of year and I’m loving every minute of it! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun Fall card featuring a couple of our awesome pumpkin products! ‘Tis the season for everything pumpkin, lol!

I created a side-folding A2 card base and rounded the right upper and lower corners. I created a pumpkin patch on the front panel with three strips of Pumpkin Washi Tape and then added three Pumpkin Brads. I added a thin strip of orange cardstock across the top of the pumpkin patch and then added a computer-generated sentiment strip. I layered the panel on orange cardstock and added some Crystal Drops.

I rounded the right upper and lower corners of the inside panel, added a strip of Pumpkin Washi Tape and adhered the computer-generated sentiment that I cut with a stitched rectangle die. I layered the panel on the orange cardstock.

And one more peek… I absolutely LOVE these brads with this washi tape – the pumpkins match perfectly!

Shine On!

Happy Saturday, y’all! I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun card featuring a bold digital sentiment from my stash that works perfectly with these brads and washi tape! And this card could be used for a variety of occasions… love it when that happens!

I created a top fold landscape card base and then cut a panel that was just a tad smaller than the card base. I applied Glitter Black Washi Tape on two-thirds of the panel (from the bottom up) and then added one strip of Glitter Gold Dots Washi Tape slightly above it. I added five Light Bulb Brads in a row and evenly spaced across the top of the black glittered portion, then attached the panel to the card base. I printed the digital sentiment, trimmed it and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to the bottom center of the panel.

I embellished the inside panel with strips of the black and gold washi tape used on the front. I printed the inside sentiment (from the same digi set), cut it with a stitched rectangle die and layered it on black cardstock. I trimmed off the left side and adhered it up against the gold washi tape strip, then layered the entire panel on black cardstock.

And one more peek… what an awesome card! The glitter washi tape and the light bulb brads, along with the digital sentiments, sure make a statement!

You’re great to have around in a pinch!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday – can’t believe we’re a little more than a week into October! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun thank you card featuring some of our new brads in the store paired with skinny ‘metal’ Washi Tape and enamel dots! Another super simple design… I’m really ‘getting into’ these, lol!

I cut a standard A2 sized top-fold white card base and a slightly smaller black cardstock layer. I created a background panel using two coordinating patterns from one of my favorite paper pads which complimented the colors of the brads nicely. I created the sentiment on the computer, printed and trimmed it, and adhered it in the center of the background panel. I added a strip of Copper Skinny Washi Tape at the top and bottom of the sentiment strip, added some Crab & Lobster Brads and adhered the panel on the black cardstock layer. I adhered the panel to the card base, and the final touch was adding a few Black Enamel Dots

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the gingham paper used on the front and a narrow strip of black cardstock, added a die cut sentiment, and layered the panel on black cardstock.

One more peek… loving how this turned out! Those brads are so awesome!

Artist Trading Cube

Happy Saturday, friends! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Are you familiar with ATCs? And did you know there is an artist trading CUBE in the ATC family?! Yep, there is, and they can be any size! So I created a 2-1/2″ square cube featuring gorgeous floral washi tape and small pearl bling!

I created the 2-1/2″ square cube with 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock. I cut different colors of patterned paper and adhered one to each of the six sides. Then I covered six pieces of 80# Neenah Solar White cardstock with different sections of Flower Washi Tape Wide, cut each one with a mini scalloped die and adhered them to the six sides of the cube. I added a digital sentiment to each, and the final step was adhering eight tiny white pearls from a White Pearl Bling Strip to each side.

And one more peek at the cube… sure do love how this turned out and I will definitely be making more of these!

Happy Birthday Dude

Hi everyone! Well, we are just rockin’ right through September!! It’ll be Christmas before we know it, lol! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun birthday card featuring some very cool washi tape, a jukebox and lots of music!

I created a top-folding card base and rounded the left lower corner – I love rounding just one corner for a little interest. I created a narrow vertical panel for the front of the card on which to build my wood floor and brick wall. I applied several strips of Wood Washi Tape and then finished covering the panel with Brick Washi Tape. I stamped the jukebox with sentiments, boomerang, star and jack in brown ink, cut them with the coordinating dies, and arranged them on the panel. I randomly placed five Vinyl Record Album Brads and stamped ‘You Rock!’ on the wall in StazOn ink to complete the panel, and adhered it to the card base.

I embellished the inside panel with a strip of the Wood Washi Tape and a narrow strip of kraft cardstock, stamped the sentiment in brown ink and layered the panel on kraft cardstock.

And one more peek… OMG, this is one of the coolest cards I think I’ve ever created! I’m so smitten!

I scream-You scream-We all scream

Happy Saturday, friends! Is it any cooler where you are? Our weather is absolutely gorgeous! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun birthday card featuring this month’s new brads that you just have to check out! We have you covered whether you love chocolate, strawberry or vanilla!

I cut a square card base and adhered a panel of blue cardstock. I layered strips of Glitter Dot Washi Tape on a piece of white cardstock leaving a very thin margin between the strips, and then cut it with a postage stamp die. I layered the die cut on a blue cardstock panel and then on white. I created the sentiment on the computer and cut it in a strip which I angled across the die cut. I added several Ice Cream Brads and adhered the layered piece to the card base. The final step was adding White Enamel Dots in the corners.

I created the inside sentiment on the computer, printed it, and trimmed it. I embellished the panel with more of the Glitter Dot Washi Tape and narrow strips of blue cardstock.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! Now I want an ice cream cone, lol!

‘Just Be-Claws’ note card

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a clean and simple note card with a beachy feel. Love me some note cards, and this would be a great one to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift!

I love super simple designs that pack a punch! I started by splattering white ink across the front of the card base with a fan brush to tie in the white sentiment strip. I created the sentiment on the computer and cut it in a strip, then layered it on orange cardstock which I embellished with a strip of brown Glitter Skinny Washi Tape. I alternated the Crab & Lobster Brads on the left side of the sentiment and then adhered the strip to the card base.

I embellished the inside panel with strips of kraft and orange cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left the inside blank, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… just loving how this turned out! Aren’t these crabs and lobsters just the cutest?!

Funky Birds Handbag

9/30/20 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!
9/30/20 Spotlight Winner at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hi everyone! It’s Saturday and I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I’ve been playing with my purse die set again and this time created a gift bag featuring some very fun washi tape, bling and a large paper flower from Eyelet Outlet – just in time for a summer or beach wedding or an anniversary! How fun would it be to tuck a gift card or cash into this little purse?!

For the front and back of the purse base, I covered the cardstock with Funky Birds Washi Tape and die cut the pieces. I then cut all the rest of the purse pieces from tweed cardstock and the rings from gold foil cardstock, and assembled the handles. I assembled the purse base and added White Pearl Bling Strips across the washi tape seams on the front and back, then attached the handles and the other purse pieces. I attached the three Paper Flower layers with an Amber 6mm Jewel Brad w/Gold Edge and affixed the flower to the front of the purse.

Here’s a shot of the back of the purse. I’m so loving how this turned out! I think it’s time to admit that I’ve become a paper purse addict, lol!

More Christmas ATCs

Hi everyone! It’s the last Saturday in August – can you believe it?! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a set of sparkly ATCs for your viewing pleasure that feature some amazing Eyelet Outlet products! As you already know, I’m an ATC addict and I love creating both cards and coins!

I created one coin and two cards. My standard practice is to always punch two circles or cut two rectangles so that I can decorate one and adhere another one behind it for stability. To create the ‘Joy’ coin, I placed a strip of Glitter Tall Tree Washi Tape horizontally across the coin base and added three Penguin Brads and the sentiment die cut from silver foil cardstock. Then I adhered a second punched circle behind it. 

To create the ‘peace’ card, I covered the card base with Wood Washi Tape and then die cut the sentiment into the covered card base, saving those tiny negative space pieces to add back in later. I added three Prancing Deer Brads and just prior to adhering the second rectangle behind it, I added two small strips of Glitter Brown Washi Tape to the front of the extra card so the sparkle would show through the die cut sentiment. Once I adhered the second rectangle, I glued in the negative space pieces to the p, e, a and the second e. 

To create the ‘merry’ card, I covered the card base with Glitter Gold Dots Washi Tape and added the sentiment die cut from red cardstock along with a thin red cardstock strip across the bottom. I adhered the stamped word Christmas and then added one Cardinal Brad and two Cardinal Profile Brads. Then I adhered a second rectangle behind it. 

And one more look at the set… I’m SO loving these! I have to say that I’m in HOG HEAVEN creating with all these awesome Eyelet Outlet products!

#alonetogether inspired hello

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a CAS friendship card featuring a couple ‘flutterbys’. Hubby and I are still doing the #alonetogether thing for the most part which led me to this super simple design which I thought would be so awesome for mom or dad to create with a child!

I settled on a pink and green color combo which is another color combo favorite. I pulled out a lonely grass border die from my stash that doesn’t get a lot of use, cut several grass borders, and layered them across the bottom of the front panel. Using a leaf punch, I punched a stem and leaves, and adhered it to the front panel. I curled the edges of all three layers of a Paper Flower, attached them with a 6mm Amber Jewel Brad and adhered the flower to the front panel. I added two Butterfly Brads and Sun and Cloud Brads. I stamped a simple sentiment in black ink in the upper left corner.

I embellished the inside panel with a couple leftover strips of the green and pink cardstock used on the front, stamped the inside sentiment in black ink and layered the panel on the pink cardstock.

And one more peek… love how this turned out! I sure hope somebody is inspired to make this with a youngster! So cute!
