Holiday Owl - Hoot Hoot Hooray Christmas Note Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am actually at OnStage in Atlanta getting ready to see some of the great new products that will be coming out in the 2020 Occasions Catalog and Saleabration brochure, but I have a super cute project for you today.  I used the Hoot Hoot Hooray stamp set from the Beginner Brochure along with some of the Night Before Christmas Designers Series Paper for my card today.  Here's a look at my card.


Tips & Tricks: 

For my card I used the one of the Scalloped Edge Note Cards from the Annual Catalog.  These cute little note cards some with matching envelopes and the cute little scallop edge.  The Scalloped Edge Note Cards and Envelopes come in four colors.  The four colors you get in each pack are Balmy Blue, Old Olive, light pink (Powder Pink retired) and Terracotta Tile.  One of the great things about the scalloped edge is that you can add a strip of designer series paper to the inside and when closed you can see it from the outside with the scalloped edge.  For the insert I used a strip of the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper.  

To decorate the outside of the note card I stamped the owl from Hoot Hoot Hooray on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched it out with a 2" circle punch.  I then colored it with my Old Olive stampin blends.  I then punched out a starburst using my starburst punch and some Cherry Cobbler Cardstock I added the colored owl to the starburst with snail and then popped it up on my card.  I then cut out one of Santa's hat and stocking from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper and added it my owl.  I placed the hat on his head and put the stocking on his hand.  I added a mini dimensional under the stocking to make it level.  
The sentiment for my card came from the host set Greatest Part of Christmas.  Which can be earned with Stampin' Rewards.

Case the Catalog - Night Before Christmas Memory & More Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another Case the Catalog project.  For today's project I am going to share with you; a card from the Holiday Catalog.  The card that I am going to share was CASEd from one of the projects on page 25.  The project that I am going to CASE today features the Night Before Christmas Memory and More Card pack and the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card and Envelopes.  If this is your first time here welcome and if you are returning welcome back.  If you are new to my blog and crafting; you may not know what the term CASE means.  CASE is a term that card makers use to learn by copying a project.  CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  By doing this you can learn new skills or techniques.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

I always love the Memory and More card packs and the matching cards and envelopes that we offer in our catalogs.  The holiday catalog has a lovely pack of Memory and More cards and matching Night Before Christmas Memory and More Cards and Envelopes.  Both of these items match the Night Before Christmas Suite.  The Memory and More card pack includes 54 double sided cards 6 each of 9 designs in 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" size along with 6 sticker sheets.  This card pack is also designed for a Holiday Memory Book (which was I offered as one of my online classes last month).  
To use the Night Before Christmas Memory & More Card Packs and the Night Before Christmas Memory & More Cards and Envelopes together to create cards is really really easy.  All you have to do is simply adhere cards from the card pack to the cards.  With just these products you can make 20 cards and coordinating envelopes.  
For this card I took the card that said To Santa and used some scrap Crumb Cake Cardstock and punched out a 1/2 circle using my 1/2 Circle Punch.  I attached that with a little liquid glue to the card from the Card pack.  I then took a hand held punch (retired) and punched a hole in the center of the crumb cake piece through the card.  I added some of the Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Diagonal Stripped Ribbon through the hole and tied it into a bow.  I then attached this to the card with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.  
And just like that you have a complete card all done.  Really and truly it's just that quick to create tons of cards just using these products.  Thanks for dropping by today.  I am glad that you are here.  I am preparing as I type this blog post to get ready to attend the OnStage Local in Atlanta next weekend, so be on the watch out on my Social Media channels for little sneak peeks of upcoming products from the 2020 Occasions Catalog and Saleabration Brochure.

Tis the Season

Hello and welcome to my blog; I hope that you are having a wonderful day!  I am going to share with you the card that I did last night during my Facebook Live.  I have a weekly Facebook Live mini Class every Wednesday night at 8 pm CST.  I also share that project and and tutorial the next day here and on my YouTube Channel.  Last night I used products from the Night Before Christmas Suite in the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  Here's a look at my card.


Tips & Tricks: 

I created this card with some scraps from my stash.  Well the designer series paper and the stamped and die cut images are from scraps any way.  I used my layering circle dies and my 2 1/4" punch to cut out punch the circles.  You can pick any of the designer series paper from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper 6 x 6 paper to create this card.  Any of the designs in this pack of DSP will work for this card.  The background piece of cardstock in Old Olive and I embossed it with the Winter Knit 3d embossing folder, before attaching it to the Very Vanilla Card base.  
Once I had the embossed background and the circles attached to the card base; I then stamped the little poinsettia image from Cup of Christmas and colored it with my Real Red light and dark stampin blends and the Flirty Flamingo Dark blend dark mango melody stampin' blend.  I ran it through my die cutting machine with the matching embossing folder and attached it with a Stampin' Dimensionals.  The Cup of Christmas set isn't part of this suite of products but I am featuring both of these sets in two of my online Classes this month.  If you are interested in either of these classes you can email me and I will send you the registration link.  If you want to take both of these classes at the same time please mention that in the email because you will save on shipping costs.  
Once the poinsettia was colored and cut out and attached to the card front.  I worked on the sentiment for my card; I took a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock and colored it with the Flirty Flamingo dark, Real Red light and dark blends and blended the colors together to make an ombre' look and then used the Tis the Season die and cut it out on my die cutting machine.  After all that I attached it to the card front with a little liquid glue.  To finish off the card I added  a few Red Rhinestones to the front of the card.
