Quietfire Design - Autumn Splendor

Hello, my friends!

It's time for another project share for Quietfire Design

Today I'm sharing a fun cut file called:

You can find it in the Silhouette Design Store HERE.

I've never put together a paper shoe before,
and I have to tell you I had a lot of fun.
All kinds of creative ideas came to mind for the next ones!

Here's my fancy Fall shoe:

I wanted some fun contrast, 
so I actually cut the file out three times,
from three different papers.

Isn't that fun?

Since I had all the pieces,
I had to make a second shoe, right?

I've inked all the edges,
and curled up the leaves before adhering them in place.

These would make a really cute Place Card
for a Fall themed Tea Party.
Just tuck name in among the leaves,
or write it on the sole of the shoe.

Finally, here's the pair together! lol
Not quite a match but I would wear them! ;o)

Other Products Used:
Papers: Making Memories - Autumn Splendor;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain.

Simply Crafty SVGs - More Organization

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new project share for Simply Crafty SVGs!

This month I'm sharing another fun organization project!

I've used:

Small Ink Pad Holder File 

but I've used it as the optional drawer.

My original intent was to create the 
Small Ink Pad Holder.
However, when I got to this point in the project,
I realized that I really needed to leave this as a drawer.

Isn't that great?
I've used papers that coordinate with my previous project HERE.

I intend to make several more of these drawers,
and stack them up on top of each other.

What will I use them for?
Well...they are perfect for all the digital printouts that I have.
I can print out all I need for a project, 
and put them in a drawer until I need them.
Also, once I'm finished one of my digital projects, 
I often have numerous leftover bits and pieces.
I can put them all together in a drawer, and label it.  


This is the view from the back...

...and the other side.

It's about an inch tall, so it will hold lots of goodies.

Then when I saw this photo I thought of another fun use for this box.
It would be a wonderful presentation box for a mini album.
It could just fit right into the drawer and be slipped closed.
I think I'll have to give that a shot!

To turn this drawer into the Small Ink Pad Holder,
it's just a matter of making one more cut paper with a grid,
and inserting it into the drawer.

File from Simply Crafty SVGs:

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Colorbok - Black;
WRMK - Tiffany.

Artsystamper - Koi Pond Box Card

Hello, my friends!

It's time for a new Artsystamper post!
Today I am sharing a project that features:

Marble Magic Digital Paper Pack, and

Koi Pond Stamp Set.

I used one paper from the Marble Magic Collection,
and multiple pre-colored images from the Koi Pond Stamp Set,
to put together this fun little box card.

I created the box card base from cardstock, using the die.
I printed out the Marble Magic paper that looked most like water.
I die-cut that paper, and added it to the base.

I then went through the Koi Pond images and decided what I wanted to use.
I sized everything I wanted in Cricut Design Space,
and then used the print/cut feature.

Then I just had fun putting everything together.

I added the sentiment to the front flap.

Finally, I went through and added the Sparkle Marker to everything.
The glitter shows in some of the photos,
but it real life it's really sparkly and pretty! 

I also added the marbled paper to the back.
It's a pretty place to write a message.

The box card folds down to fit into an A2 envelope.

Here's one final look at the finished card:

Other Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Die: Sizzix Bigz XL Box Card by Lori Whitlock;
Machine: Cricut Explore Air Machine;
Marker: Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker.

I look forward to sharing more with you!

Home Is Where...

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a another combination post share.
I've used some great products from ScraPerfect,
 along with chipboard pieces from Infinity Engraving

These two really are such a great pairing of products.
Here's my project:

I began by cutting my dark blue cardstock background. 
I used my ScraPerfect Perfect Crafting Pouch all over it
before stamping my house with embossing ink.
I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Then I took the five wood keys, and the one little heart, from Inifinity Engraving.
Each of the keys were also heat embossed:
four in silver and one in red. 
Finally, I heat embossed the chipboard heart in red.

Then I used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever
to adhere all the keys in place.
It works perfectly on even the skinniest little parts.

Then to finish it all off, I added the dark blue cardstock
onto a slightly larger white cardstock, tent fold card base.

 I'd like to thank my friend Annie for her input on this project!

Rinea Tutorial - Wonderful Life Card

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.
This month we are partnering with Imagine Crafts.

I'm going to show you how I made my card, 
using these fabulous foiled papers,
along with some StazOn Pigment Ink!

I recently picked up this fun background stamp,
and have been anxious to use it.
I thought the "messiness" of it worked well with the sentiment.

Here's my card:

Materials Used:
Tim Holtz Stamps - Background and Sentiment;
Stamp Positioning Tool of Choice;
White Cardstock Card Base.

1. Using the Shamrock Green Ink, Stamp the background design onto the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Set aside.
2. Using the Piano Black Ink, Stamp the sentiment onto the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. Set side. 

3. Mat each stamped piece with the Ebony Starstruck Foiled Paper
4. Cover the white cardstock card base with Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper.

5. Adhere the stamped piece to the front of the card.
6. Add the matted sentiment with foam tape, as shown in the photo.

Here's one last look at the finished card:
