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;
Ribbon: Unknown.

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)

Clear Scraps - Fall Acrylic Home Decor Hanging

Hello, my friends!

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

Today I am featuring the Expressions Large Fall V piece,
which you can find right HERE.

This is a wonderful piece of clear acrylic that measures 5"x 15".
It comes with a protective film on both sides,
that you just peel back when you're ready.
The creative possibilities are absolutely endless!!

Here is what I made:


I began by placing the "F" in an embossing folder,
and de-bossing an owl at the base of the letter.
I did this before removing the protective film.
After it was removed from the embossing folder,
I removed the protective film from the back of the letter.
Then I used StazOn ink in Ganache, 
and a Fantastix coloring stick, to color my owl.
I used short little strokes, to mimic feathers.
Then I added Jet Black StazOn ink for the eyes and lashes.
I adhered a die-cut pumpkin behind the owl before adding the woodgrain paper. 
I also added a large die-cut leaf on the one side.
I removed the protective film from the front of the letter,
and added three enamel dots, and a pretty ribbon bow.


In place of the "A" in Fall there is a lovely Maple Leaf.
I removed the protective backing, and added the checked paper to the back.
After removing the protective film from the front,
I added three enamel dots, and a die-cut flourish.
I also added a small ribbon bow around the stem.


Here again, I removed the protective backing, 
and adhered paper to the back of the first "L".
I added another large die-cut leaf behind the letter.


While the protective film was still in place,
I ran the second "L" through a decorative embossing folder.
After it was embossed, I removed the protective film from both the front and the back.
I inked the back of the letter with the Ganache StazOn Ink.
Once it was dry, I adhered yellow paper behind it.
I then adhered the pumpkin and crow in place, on the back of the letter.
The die-cut flourish, acorn, and leaves were added to the front.
Finally, a small ribbon bow was adhered in place.


Here's one final look at the finished piece:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Autumn;
Die-Cuts: Recollections - Autumn;
Enamel Dots: Your Next Stamp;
Inks: Imagine StazOn - Jet Black, Ganache;
Ribbon: Celebrate It.

Swedish House Crafts - Traditional Christmas Card for Allsorts Challenge

Hello, friends! 

I'm here today with a fun Christmas card share for Swedish House Crafts
I've created this lovely traditional card in honour of the Challenge
 that Swedish House Crafts is sponsoring over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog
where the challenge is to use traditional Christmas colours. 

Here is my card:


 The papers are all from the Pion Design - To My Valentine Collection
I cut a strip of paper, and folded it into a banner shape. 
Then I cut a smaller strip, and stamped the "Merry Christmas", 
I then adhered that strip onto the banner. 
I inked all the edges with gold metallic wax before adhering it in place. 


I colored the chipboard with the gold wax, 
and then die-cut a circle from red paper to back it.  
Once it was adhered to the card base, 
I added some red glitter glue into the heart.              


    Finally, I added a pretty bow made from the Brick Red Ribbon.


  Here's one last look at the finished card:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

My Scrap Chick - Fall Acorn Card

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I am sharing the lovely Fall Acorn Card file.
You can find it HERE.

It makes such a pretty card:


It has so many components that could be used with other Fall projects.
The branch, the leaves, and the acorns.


The script font of the "Fall" is really lovely!


The file includes a narrow strip of paper to be used between the top and bottom pieces.
Instead, I opted to use a picot edged satin ribbon.
Then I added a small ribbon bow to it. 
Either way it sure does look like Fall to me! :o)

Rinea Tutorial - Fun Harvest Gift Bag

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.
Autumn themed projects are so much fun to make!

I'm going to show you how to make this fun little gift bag, 

using these fabulous foiled papers!
It would make a lovely hostess gift for Thanksgiving,
or even a fun place setting decoration!



I'm using the "Autumn Foiled Paper Variety Pack" for this project.



Other materials used:
  • Tim Holtz Alterations Die - In the Bag 
  • Tim Holtz Decorative Strip Die - Autumn Gatherings
  • Hole Punch or Crop-o-dile
  • Skewer or paint brush
  • Scrap of Brown Cardstock
  • 1" Circle Punch
  • Adhesive of Choice
  • Ribbon or Seam Binding for Bow

1. Cut the bag die using the Mocha Starstruck Foiled Paper


2. Then cut a variety of leaves, branches, and acorns, using: 


3. Punch holes in the sides of the bags, using a crop-o-dile. 
Thread two matching scrap strips of Starstruck through the holes, 
leaving several inches extended beyond the hole.
Refer to photo.


4. Wrap this extended bit tightly around a skewer to curl.
This also holds the handle in place.


5. Punch a 1" circle from a scrap of brown cardstock.
Arrange the leaves, branches and acorns.  
Adhere in place to the cardstock circle.
Reserve some of the leaves to add later.


6. Tie a bow from ribbon or seam binding. 
Adhere in place to the top of the punched circle.


7. Adhere the punched circle to the front of the bag.
Now adhere the reserved leaves in place,
as though they are falling from the arrangement.
Also, using the skewer or a paintbrush, 
curl the leaves and branches.
This adds dimension and interest to the arrangement.


8. All that's left is to fill the bag with some treats,
or a gift card! 


Wouldn't these make a lovely Thanksgiving decoration?
They're so fun to put together,
and the foiled papers are so elegant!

I'll be back again soon with another project idea!

My Scrap Chick - Fun Fall Word Book!

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I am sharing the Fall Word Book Cut File.
You can find it right HERE.

This file comes with all the layers, leaves, and labels
displayed in my album!
It's such a fun one to put together!
It would also make a lovely gift for a special Fall occasion. 
The size of my album is approximately 3 3/4" x 10".
It looks much bigger but it's adorable!


I cut some extra leaves to add to the back of the pages,
leaving room for some special photos.


I also bound my album with ribbons.
It's small enough to do this,
and the ribbons offer lots of ease.


A really lovely variety of leaf cuts are included.
They can be used on so many other Fall projects!


I had to add one more large Maple leaf to the back of the album.


Isn't it wonderful?
Just enough room to take note of some special memories,
with a few photos and relevant journaling!


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Craft Smith - Pumpkin Spice;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Ribbon: Offray - 1/8" Satin.
