Cookie Cutter Christmas Santa

Catalog_coverThe Holiday Catalog will go live on Thursday, September 2nd.  If you are a customer of mine, you should have received your copy of this amazing catalog within the last 10 days. If not, let me know.

The first thing I added to my pre-order on August 1st was this Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle.  There is a coordinating Fall/Halloween set and I ordered that too!! 

Cookie_cutter_christmas_santa_trio

Isn't Santa just the cutest, I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black and then used my Blender Pen and Cherry Cobbler ink to color in his hat and suit.  I then scribbled some of my Basic Black Marker onto a Clear Block and used that as my palette to color in his belt and boots.  I cropped him with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  The ball on the top of his hat is also a stamp in the set and the punch will crop it. 

Cookie_cutter_christmas_santa_close
I added a strip of DSP from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack and then covered the seam with a piece of the fabulous new Silver Glitter Ribbon.  The greeting is from another NEW set in the Holiday Catalog called Star of Light and I cropped it with one of the smaller banner dies in the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

Cookie_cutter_christmas_santa1
The final touch was to crop some small stars with the Confetti Stars Border Punch and add them with a tiny drop of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

You can start ordering from this amazing catalog on Thursday so get your wish lists ready!!

Sneak Peek at the August Paper Pumpkin Kit

The August Paper Pumpkin Kits are arriving and I have a Sneak Peek for you below.  The kit includes supplies to create six greeting cards with envelopes along with three notecard pockets.  However, you never have to create the suggested projects if you don't want to because I supply my subscribers with 10-12 alternate project ideas each month.  This file of alternate ideas includes a photo of each project, supply list and instructions to create each one.


2016_august_sneakpeek
This is just one of the projects you will receive in an emailed file from me if you are one of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  All of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers receive directions for 10-12 exclusive projects.  With the exception of this Sneak Peek, the projects in my monthly file aren't posted ANYWHERE so they are exclusive. :-)

The inside holds a gift card.

Small, Removable Shaker Easel to Sit on Your Desk!!

This card is so cool!!  I received it from my good friend Connie and I just love it!!

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel

It looks like a regular card but there is a surprise on it.

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel_out_slitIt has a small removable shaker easel that you can set on your desk, or anywhere so you can appreciate it.  So nifty!!!  The easel measures approx 3 x 3 and is adorable.

Endless_birthday_wishes_easel1_out

You must cut a slit in the main card base so the the easel will have a place to hang.  The main card base is cut to 4-1/4 x 11 and you will place it in the trimmer with the long edge at the top.  Slide the left edge over to the 2-1/4" mark and start your cut at the 1-3/8" mark and cut down to the 2-3/4" mark. 

To create the easel piece, you need the Layering Squares Framelits.  You need the two largest scalloped squares and the two largest squares.  The stamping is done on Whisper White and then the other pieces are added to create a shaker card.  

Layering_framelitsDownload Layering_framelits_sizes

You can watch my video on making a Shaker Card on my YouTube Channel.

The back of this piece has a strip of Pink Pirouette cardstock scored and folded to create the stand.

Start with a piece of card stock that measures 1 x 8 and score it at 1", 3-1/2", 4-1/2", and 5-1/2".  Fold it up and adhere it to the back of the easel.

Sunshine Sayings Bundle Congrats

Another Sunshine Sayings card for your today, I have a couple more on my blog and you can find them HERE and HERE.

The Sunshine Sayings Bundle includes the stamp set and the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. 
When you purchase a bundle you save 10%.

Sunshine_saying_congrats

This one uses the Watermelon Wonder pattern in the 2015-2017 In color Envelope Paper as a side liner for the inside of the card.  This adds a pop of color and interest when the card is closed.

Sunshine_saying_congrats_in

You may be wondering how I created the scalloped edge on the side of the card.  It was easy peasy with my Best Badge punch.

Scallop_edgeI have a video showing you how to do it on my YouTube Channel click on this photo to view the video.

 

 

 

Sunshine_saying_congrats_close
Here's a close up of the tag, the stapler was used to attach the 5/8" Mini Striped Watermelon Wonder Ribbon.  The flower and brushstroke images from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set were stamped in Crushed Curry and the die cut flower was added after.
