Hello, my friends!

I don't know if you've noticed 
but it's been a while since I've shared a new post for All Dressed Up.
I ran into some nasty "technical difficulties" with my printer. 
It looks like I FINALLY have things sorted! :o)

So here we go with a new challenge at All Dressed Up!
The challenges are always Anything Goes but you MUST use an image from All Dressed Up.
There are freebies available at the challenge blog HERE! :o)

This month I used one of the 3 Little Christmas Girls image,
which you can find HERE.


These sweet images are always so much fun to color and create with!


Just some simple die-cutting and layering, and some bling.
Then for a final touch, I added some Glossy Accents to the nose of the reindeer hat.

Rinea Tutorial - Christmas Tag with Imagine

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.

I'm going to show you how to make this fun Christmas Tag
using these fabulous foiled papers!



I'm using the Jolly Foiled Variety Paper Pack for this project.
Also, in partnership with Imagine, I'll be using StazOn Ink.


Other materials used:

  • Imagine StazOn Ink - Jet Black;
  • Stamp: Just Rite - Festive Poinsettia, Gina K Designs - Merry Christmas, Stampin' Up - Luke 2;

  • Cardstock: American Crafts - Green;
  • Punches: WRMK - Hole Reinforcer, Fiskars - Holly Border;
  • Ribbon: Trim It Up - Gold Metallic;
  • Beads: Round Rose Gold Metallic.

1. Using Jet Black StazOn Ink, stamp multiple Poinsttia leaves and flowers onto Emerald/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.


2. Then use the Jet Black StazOn ink to stamp multiple Poinsettia flowers onto the Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled PaperAlso, stamp several of the floral style berries.


3. Next, stamp both of the sentiments, and several of the holly berry outlines (I ended up not using these), with the Jet Black StazOn ink. Do this onto the Gold side of the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.


4. Using the coordinating dies, cut out all the stamped designs.
5. Cut the tag base from the green cardstock. It measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/2". Angle cut the top corners.


6. Cut strips of the Gold Glossy paper to fit around the outside of the tag. Punch with the Holly border punch. Adhere in place.
7. Die-cut the sentiments using the Just Rite Custom Dies. Layer as shown in photo, and adhere in place on the tag.


8. Punch a hole in the center top of the tag. Using the WRMK Reinforcer punch, punch a reinforcer from the Gold Glossy paper. Adhere in place around the hole.
9. Thread gold metallic ribbon through the hole.


10. Shape the Poinsettia flowers and leaves, and adhere the layers together. 
11. Adhere one round Rose beads to the center of each Poinsettia.

Clear Scraps - Holly Stencil Background Card

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Clear Scraps!

Today I'm sharing a Christmas card I made featuring the 6" Holly Stencil.

We all need cards that are flat, and can easily be popped in the mail.
This design is really good for that. 
I've made it 5 1/2" square but it could easily be done in A2 size.
Here's my card:


Using a foam applicator, and Distress oxide inks, 
I stenciled the design, onto kraft cardstock, as follows:
Holly Leaves in Peeled Paint,
Holly Berries in Fired Brick, and 
Swirls in Wilted Violet.
I thought the addition of the purple really added some fun excitement! ;o)


When I was finished I trimmed it to 5 1/4" and misted it with water. 
I love what the water does to the Distress Oxide inks on kraft!


I mounted the finished piece onto a 5 1/2" purple card base.
I stamped the sentiment on kraft, using the Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
I matted it with purple cardstock, and adhered it in place with foam tape.
Finally, I added a pretty purple double-looped bow!


Here's one last look at the finished card:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Kraft, Cardstock;
Inks: Distress Oxide Inks - Fired Brick, Vintage Photo, 
Imagine - Memento Tuxedo Black;
Stamp: Gina K Designs - Merry Christmas;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

My Scrap Chick - Fall Frenzy

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

I called my post a Fall Frenzy.
It's not really a frenzy...it's just a combination of three great files...
and I thought frenzy sounded really good behind Fall! lol

The three fun Fall files from My Scrap Chick are:

Bracket Book

Fall Leaf Party Pennant

Harvest Treat Tag 2 inch Printable

There were a couple of good tongue twisters there, huh? lol

Okay...let's move on to the mini album I put together.

The base pages were all cut from kraft cardstock.
Then I down-sized the page just a bit,
and added a layer of cardstock to each side in Fall colors.


To decorate my cover, I cut the Party Pennants small enough to fit.
I cut them in a variety of Fall colors, layered them, and adhered them in place.
I added small brown pearls over the pre-cut holes. 


 I printed the page of Treat Tags, cut one out, and added it to my cover. 
Then I adhered a couple of extra leaves to the top of it.


 Here's a peek at one of the inside pages. 
I'll share more as I work on them.


 Finally, I punched holes, added the rings, and added a ribbon.


Other Materials:
Paper: Recollections, AC - Cardstock;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Bling: Basic Grey;
Binding Rings: Unknown;
Ribbon: Last Scrap of My Favorite Fall Ribbon.

Rinea - Autumn Blessings Card

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new Rinea project share, using Rinea Foiled Paper!

Again, I am using the gorgeous Autumn Foiled Paper Variety Pack.
I sure do love this collection! 
It just makes it so easy to create a gorgeous card!

Here's the card I created:


I began with a white cardstock card base.
I covered the front of it with the beautiful Ruby/Ruby Starstruck Foiled Paper.
Then I cut a smaller piece of the rich Mocha/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper
and layered it on top.


I cut the lovely die from the beautiful Ruby/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
I adhered it in place to the center of the card.
I curled up the edges of the leaves to add some dimension.
I die-cut the words "Autumnn Blessings",
and adhered them in place.
Finally, I added a deep brown ribbon bow.


Other Materials Used:
Paper: Staples - White Cardstock;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Decorative Curved Square,
Simon Says Stamp - Autumn Blessings;

Simply Crafty SVGs - Part 5 of Card and Card Holder Series

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new project share for Simply Crafty SVGs!

This is Part 5 of my fun Series.
If you missed it...you'll find 
Part 1 HERE,
 Part 2 HERE
 Part 3 HERE,
and Part 4 HERE.
Each post includes a card/cards, along with a card holder,
both available in the shop.
I think sets like these make fabulous gifts,
so this may help you get ready for the gift giving season well in advance.
They are also really great to keep and use for organizational purposes.
I hope to share a variety of styles, so as to appeal to all of your tastes! :o)

* * * * *
Today I am sharing a gorgeous sunflower card,
and a lovely coordinating card box, with a curved front.

Part 5 Files:

Card: Sunflower Cards

Holder: Curvy Stationary Organizer

We'll start with the card:

You may have noticed that I'm rather partial to sunflowers! ;o)
This is a really lovely cut, and so fun to put together!
The file comes with two card options.
I created the round one that measures 5".
The other option is a 5" x 7" rectangle version with a rounded top. 
Each option includes various layers. 
Here's my card:


The card base is the blue cardstock - it has a lovely scallop.
The next layer is a lovely scallop with little circles out of each scallop.
It would make a lovely doily, and could be used many ways.
Then there are two layers of the sunflower petals,
and three layers of the center.


To finish off my card, I puddled Glossy Accents in the center layer, 
and filled it with little brown micro-beads!
I really like the texture that it added!



* * * * *
Now we move on to the card box:

This is the Curvy Stationary Organizer.
It's another box that would be perfect to store cards and envelopes.


You can see that it's a good size,
as this card is 5" and is tucked in the front.


There's lots of room to add so much more!
I think it would be great for storing project life, or traveler's notebook goodies too.
I love to keep things organized! ;o)


Here are the Card and Organizer together:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock,
DCWV - Citrus Stack;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Glossy Accents;
Micro Beads.

* * * * *

Isn't that a lovely way to store cards,
or a beautiful way to gift a set of cards?

So head on over to the shop and pick up these files:

Card: Sunflower Cards

Holder: Curvy Stationary Organizer

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you found some inspiration!
I'll be back next month to share my 6th and final Part in this Series! :o)
