Rinea Tutorial - Spring Flowers Gift Box and Card

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.

I'm going to show you how to make this fun gift box and card,
using these fabulous foiled papers!

Again, we're partnering with Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps!
So I have also used some of their fabulous stamps in my project!

I'm using the "Pastels" collection for this project.
I think this is one of my very favorite Variety Packs from Rinea!
The color combination is just gorgeous!

Other materials used:

  1. I began by using the box file from the Cricut Cartridge, and cutting it out of the Turquoise/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

2. Then it was time for all the stamping. I stamped the flower on the box cut, using the Gothic Purple ink. Then using the Jet Black ink, I stamped flowers on the Starstruck Lavender, and the Glossy Lavender Foiled Papers. I stamped the flower centers on the Starstruck Jade Foiled Paper, as well as some leaves. Then I stamped a number of leaves on the Glossy Jade Foiled Paper. Finally, I stamped the sentiment on the Glossy Lavender Paper, and on some white cardstock. 

3. Next, I fussy cut out all the flowers, leaves, and flower centers. 

4. Assemble the box. Little bits of the glossy gold back will show.

5. Layer the Jade flower centers on the Lavender flowers with foam tape.
6. Position some glossy Jade leaves on the back of the flowers. 
7. Adhere the flowers in place on the box with foam tape.
8. Curl up the flower petals and the leaves, to add some dimension. 

9. Here's a close-up of the flowers.

10. I cut a 3 1/4" square of Turquoise Glossy Foiled paper, and adhered it to the card base. 
11. I assembled one more flower and adhered it in place on the card with foam tape.
12. I trimmed down the sentiment stamped on the cardstock, and adhered it in place at the bottom of the card. 

13. Fill the box with a yummy treat or gift, and present it to someone special! 

I just love working with these foiled papers.
I think they make an ordinary project look extraordinary! :o)

Arnold Grummer - Handmade Paper Celebration Card

Hello, my friends!

 I have a new project to share with you for Arnold Grummer.

Today I'm using more handmade paper from my blizzard day stash!

Materials Used:

Packing Paper;
Red Crinkle Basket Filler;
Red Cardstock;
Ribbon: Offray - Red Satin;
Alphabet Dies: Little B - Block Out.

How I did it:

During a recent marathon day of paper-making, 
I made some plain pages using the packing paper that came in a parcel. 
I then experimented with adding some crinkled strips of basket filler. 
With one page I cut the filler up, 
and with one page I kept the filler in the original long pieces. 
Here are what all three pages look like:

Here's a photo of the red crinkled strips, 
so that you know just what I'm talking about:

To see exactly how I put my card together,
please go HERE,
to the Arnold Grummer blog.

Isn't it fun how some crinkly bits can turn plain packing paper
 into a piece of party infested handmade paper? 
I think it's wonderful fun!

* * * * *
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'm really looking forward to sharing more handmade paper projects with you 
in the months ahead!
It's so much FUN!

Oh, you'll want to check out the resource page over at the website. 
You can watch Arnold Grummer himself demonstrate how to make paper!

Clear Scraps - Mason Jar Pallet Home Decor

Hello, my friends!

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

This is another fun new product project, using:

Mason Jar DIY Pallet Shape,
and the
Create XL Script Wood Word.

I had lots of fun with paint on this project.
I also took process photos but they somehow got deleted!
I can't find them anywhere!

Here's the finished project:

I began by painting the entire piece with brown acrylic paint.
When it was dry, I coated it with crackle medium.
When that was dry, I painted the top with black paint,
and the bottom with buttercream paint.
It's so fun to watch the crackle happen! :o)

I inked the "Create" with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
When it was dry, I glued it in place.
Finally, I tied a ribbon around the top of the jar,
and added an extra double-loop bow!

Other Materials Used:
Acrylic Paint: Black, Brown, Buttercream;
Crackle Medium;
Ink: Distress Ink - Faded Jeans;
Ribbon: Offray.

Clear Scraps Products Used:

Create XL Script Wood Word

Simply Crafty SVGs - Box Card Series - Part 3

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new project share for Simply Crafty SVGs!
This is Part 3 of my Box Card Series.
You'll find Part 1 HERE,
and Part 2 HERE.

March is fast approaching, 
and that means Spring is right around the corner!
I created this Box Card with that in mind.

I used the Spring Flower Pot Box Card.

Here it is:

This was another fun one to put together.
Although I confess it took more time than I'm used to.

I decided that I wanted to make really full flowers,
so I cut twice as many and doubled up the petals.

To accommodate for the extra weight of the flowers, 
I also doubled up on the width of the stem.

Since I wanted to mail this card to someone special for their birthday,
I didn't add the included "Happy Spring" sentiment cut.
Instead, I stamped "For You" and layered it with some punches, 
before adhering it to the back panel.

I also added one extra little flower to the bottom of the front pot.
I thought it looked pretty there! :o)

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock,
DCWV - Citrus Stack;
Stamp: Stampin' Up - Sentiment;
Punches: Stampin' Up - Oval, Scalloped Oval.

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

Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you found some inspiration!
I'll be back next month to share a brand new project! :o)

Sparkle N Sprinkle - May Showers

Hello, my friends!

Friday means it's time for a new project share for Sparkle N Sprinkle!
This week I'm sharing a fun card that I created:

 Here's What I Used from Sparkle N Sprinkle:


New May Showers Rubber Stamp Bundle Set, 00-920-923P20

New May Showers Digital Stamp Set, DIGI920J

Embossing Powders:


Coloring Mediums:




Watercolor Paper 6ct, WCPAP

Spectrum Noir Markers, Recollections - Cardstock.

Here's how I did it:

I began by stamping the fabulous boot image and sentiment,
 using the Memento ink.
I colored the image with markers.

On the watercolor paper, I stamped the raindrops using the Versamark ink.
I stamped it randomly all over the page.
Then I heat embossed with the clear embossing powder.
You can't see the result on the page below.

I sprinkled the Nuance powder on the page,
and spritzed it with water. 
I used a combination of moving the page, a brush, 
and adding more powders, until I liked the final result.
My rainy background is ready!

Taking the color from the boots, I created a red card base.
I adhered the background to the card base.
I also matted the sentiment with red cardstock.

I fussy cut the colored image out, and adhered it in place with foam tape.
The sentiment was also added with foam tape.

Here's a closer look at my background:

Here's even can see the shine of the raindrops:

One final look at the finished card:

I'll be back next week with another Sparkle N Sprinkle project!

My Scrap Chick - Filagree Heart Card

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I am sharing the beautiful Filagree Heart Duo file!
This cut file comes with two frame options.

I've used it to create this pretty card:

I've used the cut that included the pretty leaf flourish,
and the scallop heart backing.

For my card base, 
I enlarged the scalloped heart shape.
I duplicated it and welded the reverse shape at the top
 to create a tent-fold heart shaped card.

Finally, I added some white crystal drops to finish it off.

Other Materials Used:
Papers: K & Company - Julianne;
Bling: Nuvo Crystal Drops - Simply White.
