ELEGANT ORNAMENT

By Jennifer del Muro
on September 27, 2022

Hello crafty friends! Lien here with an elegant Christmas card! You can find out all the details in the youtube video below.

For this card I used my favorite stamp set from the new Reverse Confetti Holiday Release, the Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped the holly image twice with alcohol marker friendly ink onto Clairefontaine DCP 250 gsm cardstock. I colored them very simply with my Ohuhu markers. I did make sure to color the berries a lighter red than I normally would have because they would end up on a dark red background. I die cut them with the Coordinating confetti cuts which leaves a white edge all the way around. Since these will end up on a red background, I went over the white areas with the closest matching red marker in my collection.

These holly branches are going to be the decoration for my ornament which I cut with the beautiful Ornament die. I cut it once from gold glitter cardstock for the frame (you can easily turn this into a shaker!) and once from the same dark red cardstock I will use for my background. I cut 3 additional white layers to add dimension to this. Before putting the ornament together, I adhered the holly branches to my red circle with some liquid adhesive. I cut them apart to stretch them and fill the entire circle.

I also cut a background with the Brilliance Cover Panel and added some darker inkblending to the outer edges. With the middle of the card left lighter, it will draw the eye right to the center. I glued the ornament in the center and added a sentiment from the Christmas Card Greetings stamp set white heat embossed onto gold cardstock. I propped the sentiment up on foam tape and finished the card off with some gold pearls.

FALL WREATH

I loosely watercolored it (Being a bit of a control freak, this style is difficult for me) and then cut it out with the coordinating dies.

I diecut it from kraft cardstock, trimmed it down, and mounted it onto a white card. I adhered the wreath with foam squares.

I hot-foiled it in gold and diecut it with the accompanying die. The supporting sentiment is from the Autumn Sentiments stamp. I heat-embossed the sentiment, trimmed it down, and popped up both sentiments with foam. I finished with a scattering of gold dots. Thanks for stopping by! *Affiliate links used at no cost to you.

AUTUMN GREETINGS

By Jennifer del Muro
on September 23, 2022

Happy Fall ya'll! Yesterday was the first day of Autumn and while I am located in sunny California, that does not stop me from celebrating the changing of the seasons elsewhere. For today's project, I am sharing a card using supplies from some older lines as well as the new release.

I started this card with a white A2 panel that I ran through my die cut machine with the Folklore Cover Panel Confetti Cuts. I chose this panel because the background and texture reminds me of a sweater.

Next, I was feeling extra crafty this evening, and decided to grab some water color paper and my water color palette. I am no watercolor artists so I don't have anything fancy. I just knew I wanted some Fall colors, so I proceeded to wet my paper and then throw down some green, yellow, pink, brown and orange. I let those colors dry, with the aid of a heat gun (!), and then added more color and repeated that process a few times.

Once the panel was mostly dry I ran it through my die cut machine multiple times with the leaf Confetti Cut from the Flower Builder set. This leaf is still one of my favorite leaf dies that I own because of the detail on the die.

I arranged these leaves in little groups of 2 and 3 on the page and glued them down with liquid adhesive.

I used the 'Autumn Greetings' stamp from the Autumn Sentiments which is a part of the new release. I used black pigment ink on vellum and then heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder. Then I wrapped the entire vellum piece around the back of my card panel.

Lastly, I glued the entire card panel onto an A2 card base and added a few gold shiny drops, as always, for some bling. That is it!

I love re-discovering fun ways to craft and this card helped me break out my watercolors. Hopefully it helps you get back to a first love as well!

Have a great weekend!

BOOTIFUL NIGHT

By Jennifer del Muro
on September 22, 2022
Hello crafty friends, it's Joy here. Halloween is right around the corner and so I'm sharing a fun Halloween card from the new release. I used the Hello Bootiful stamp and die along with the Window Die. I hope you enjoy!
 
 I die cut the Window die from white and black cardstock. I used the white cardstock for the night sky background. I masked off a circle and ink blended with Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. Then I removed the mask for the moon and lightly ink blended it with Scattered Straw. I splattered the background with Picket Fence Distress Spray and a shimmery watercolor. I adhered the window frame to the background with foam tape, then adhered that to a black A2 panel.
 
 
I stamped the cute ghosts from the Hello Bootiful stamp set on vellum with black Stazon ink and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I liked that they were see through, so it didn't block the view through the window.
 
 
I finished by stamping the sentiment and coloring it with Copic Markers.
I hope you enjoyed this project. Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Joy

CHRISTMAS CARD INSPIRATION

By Jennifer del Muro
on September 21, 2022

 When I saw the new Stamptember Reverse Confetti set call Fa La La Trees, I immediately had this design in my head for this stamp set.  I love to make Christmas cards with gold embossing and gold foil.  


I stamped a tree to the center of a panel of red and green cardstock using tone on tone inks.  I then stamped the star and the tree trunk.  I used my heat gun to dry the inks really well so that I could emboss on top of the panel.  

I then stamped with Versamark ink and then applied Hero Arts Rich Pale Gold embossing powder and embossed the star, the large sentiment and a strip sentiment onto each panel.   I trimmed the panels down and added to a gold foil panel.   

I stamped another panel of the opposite color with the Background Builder stamp set.  On one panel I used the solid stripe and the other with the solid circle.  I love when I can

VIDEO | YULETIDE MICE

By Jennifer del Muro
on September 20, 2022

Hello crafty friends! Lien here with a simple Christmas card showcasing a combination of new and old products! Make sure to watch the video for the full tutorial!

For this card I used one of the beautiful images from the Yuletide Mice stamp set. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it in with my Ohuhu markers (you can watch the coloring process in the video below) and stamped it again with Versafine Onyx Black ink so I could add some embossing powder to the outline and make it nice and glossy.

I then took a piece of light blue cardstock and blended some darker blue inks on top, darkening up the edges and keeping the center light, this will help to draw attention to our focal image. To finish the background I wanted to add silver embossed splatter, this is really easy to do, just mix glue with a little bit of water, splatter it on, sprinkle on the embossing powder and heatset it. Stunning embossed splatter. But my ink blending wasn't dry yet, so the embossing stuck to the entire background. A great happy accident because it gave my background that beautiful look of a frosty window in the winter.

I die cut the gorgeous new Joy To The World confetti cut from my background and three more times out of thick white cardstock. I layered those pieces together and also saved all the small negative space pieces that were cut out. I did some die cut inlay on top of my cardbase, added the mouse with foam tape and finished the card off with some silver gems.

JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the World card by Andrea Shell | Joy to the World Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti Isn't that die gorgeous?! When I saw it, I knew I wanted to pair it with the Adore Him and Joyous Holiday stamp sets. In order to fit the images and allow the diecut plenty of room to shine (pun intended), I created a 5"x7" card. Joy to the World card by Andrea Shell | Joy to the World Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti To create my background, I cut a slope from masking paper, saving both pieces. I first masked the sky and blended Antique Linen distress ink for the hill. Next, I masked the hill and blended the sky with Salty Ocean, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. I flicked white paint across the panel to represent stars. Once the background was dry, I adhered the diecut sentiment, which I had cut from gold glitter cardstock. Joy to the World card by Andrea Shell | Joy to the World Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti I Copic-colored the images from Adore Him and Joyous Holiday and cut them out. I popped up the images with foam squares and added some Copic shading under the nativity to ground the image. I finished the card with a scattering of clear stars.

It's hard to believe that the holidays will be upon us before we know it.  Over the last couple of days, we have introduced you to new products for Halloween and Fall/Thanksgiving and today we are excited to share with you some new CHRISTMAS products that I am sure you are going to LOVE!  I am going to go ahead and introduce everything ahead of my projects.
First in the line up is a new hot foil combo...

HOT FOIL COMBO: CHRISTMAS

We also have a couple stand alone Confetti Cuts dies that are definitely swoon worthy...

WINDOW

JOY TO THE WORLD

We couldn't do Christmas without a dedicated sentiment set...

CHRISTMAS CARD GREETINGS

Finally, we have a fabulous new stamp set for this holiday season...

POINSETTIA

Coordinating Confetti Cuts die set available.
.
.
.
My first card that I have to share with you today features the new POINSETTIA stamps and Confetti Cuts, as well as the new WINDOW Confetti Cuts and HOT FOIL COMBO: CHRISTMAS...
As with all of my cards, or so it seems, this card starts off with a white card base.  The panel that is popped up on the base is clear embossed with the image of the large poinsettia flower.  I think this subtle detail is what really makes this card!
Atop of that layer are cuts from the new WINDOW Confetti Cuts die set. I cut the base/frame once and mounted it on dimensional adhesive.  The decorative window is triple cut and layered on top of that.
From there, I added the holly leaves that are stamped and colored with Copic markers along with the gold foiled "Christmas" (HOT FOIL COMBO: CHRISTMAS) and the stamped "believe in the magic of the season" sentiment from the new CHRISTMAS CARD GREETINGS stamp set.
As a finishing touch, I added a few gold sequins to match with the gold foil sentiment.
.
.
.
This second card that I have for you today is a little less formal and a little more playful.  For this card, I combined the (previously released) POSTAL Cover Panel Confetti Cuts along with the new POINSETTIA stamps and Confetti Cuts, JOY TO THE WORLD Confetti Cuts and CHRISTMAS CARD SENTIMENTS stamp set.
It all starts with a white card base that has the POSTAL Cover Panel popped up on dimensional adhesive.
I then created a wreath with leaf images from the new POINSETTIA stamp set that are stamped tone on tone on lime cardstock.
The bright pink heart is from the POSTAL Cover Panel Confetti Cuts die set and it tucks perfectly under the double layered JOY TO THE WORLD.  I wanted just a very subtle colored offset for this die cut. I cut it from both white and aqua cardstocks with the aqua being just a bit offset.
Finally, I added the "good tidings to you & yours" from the new CHRISTMAS CARD SENTIMENTS stamp set (popped up on dimensional adhesive).

That's all for me for today!  See you over ON INSTAGRAM tomorrow for our new release hop!  Be sure to head on over to see what our fabulous DT and 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today...

Of course, we have some new and fabulous items that are perfect to mix with this re-released set, including a new hot foil combo...

HOT FOIL COMBO: GATHER

And, before I get to my projects to share with you today, I have one more introduction to make...

AUTUMN SENTIMENTS

.
.
.
I pulled all of the products together, plus used the Folklore Cover Panel to create this card...
I started both of my cards today by stamping A LOT of the leaves from the FALL FOLIAGE set in black ink and watercoloring them with Karin Brushmarkers. I used the coordinating Confetti Cuts die set to cut them out.  It was nice to have a big stack of these on hand to put together these cards, plus another that I will share later in the week.
This card begins with a white card base and then I added the black panel on the left hand side.  From there, I layered a panel cut with the Folklore Cover Panel. I love how the texture of this panel pairs so well with the fall/autumn vibes.
I hot foiled the word "gather" in gold and cut it out with coordinating Confetti Cuts die that is included in combo.  I tripled layered the cuts so that it had dimension on this card.
I then tucked the sentiment from the new AUTUMN SENTIMENTS stamp set just under the swooping 'g' and 'r.'  I also tuck a bunch of the leaves from the FALL FOLIAGE set.
.
.
.
This next card uses the "you are a blessing" sentiment from the Autumn Sentiments stamp set as the main "image." It's matted and popped up on dimensional adhesive.
under the "you are a blessing" sentiment, I added a second sentiment from the AUTUMN SENTIMENTS set stamped on kraft cardstock.
I reached into that big stack of leaves that I stamped, watercolored and cut and added mirroring bunches on top and bottom.  As a finishing touch, I added a few brown/copper colored sequins for just a touch of sparkle.
.

Time for me to send you on your way to see what our amazing DT and 'Fetti Friends have to share with you today.  Same time and place tomorrow for all things CHRISTMAS.  See you then!
