Hello Sunshine Patchwork Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am excited to share this cute Spring card with you today! This patchwork idea was inspired from Pinterest. You will have hours of fun using this patchwork idea on your own cards! ENJOY! :)

  • Cut (1) piece of white cardstock at 3 3/4" x 5" (This is your patchwork background)  
  • Cut (1) colored cardstock of choice at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8" (I used Periwinkle)
  • Cut (8) pieces at 1 5/8" x 2 1/4" of random colors and patterns of B&T paper (I used the March-April mix-in papers and Honey Bunny papers from CTMH)
  • Cut a 2 1/4" or 2 1/2" circle (I used a 2 1/2" retired scalloped circle thin cuts) 
  • Cut (1) rainbow using the Happy Snail Trails stamp + thin cuts

Here's the scalloped thin I used. Rainbow was colored 
with Periwinkle ink and Sage ink (stamp pad painting) with a small waterbrush,
light green tri-blend marker, yellow tri-blend marker, and pale pink tri-blend marker.

This is what the piece looks like before cutting it corner to corner.
This piece measures at 1 5/8"x 2 1/4".

This is what the pieces will look like after cutting them corner to corner and placing them in a patchwork pattern before gluing them to your 3 3/4" x 5" white cardstock piece.

  • Start gluing each piece by starting with the top two pieces first and work your way around with a 1/8" space in between each piece.
  • Once you have glued all your pieces, glue this to your colored cardstock piece, leaving a small space on all sides.
  • Glue the colored cardstock to the white card base, leaving around 1 /4" on all sides.
  • Stamp "Hello Sunshine" from your Happy Snail Trails stamp set in Intense Black ink pad at the bottom of your circle.
  • Adhere the rainbow with thin 3-D foam tape to the top of the circle.
  • Adhere the circle with thin 3-D foam tape to the center of card.
  • Add gems or sparkles to right side of circle.

Supply list:
  • Z7144 Happy Snail Trails Stamp + Thin cuts
  • X73028 Honey Bunny paper packet

 Hello all! 
It's been a while since I've posted any artwork! The holidays were busy, and life got even busier! Some of you may have not heard the news last week. We received some heartbreaking news that CTMH will be closing their doors after 40 years in the paper-crafting industry on June 30, 2024! We are all trying to process this news and figure out what's next! I would have been with CTMH for 30 years this fall!

Treat Bag Cover Holders

Hello Crafty Friends!
Happy December! I hope you're enjoying all the holiday festivities and the spirit of Christmas!
I would like to share a fun treat bag cover holder with you! I made two different treat bag covers for my Santa's Workshop projects that will be held in my home this week! I am excited to paper-craft with my peeps! This is the biggest party of the year! I include dinner, holiday projects, bingo for CTMH products, and a fun drawing! We have so much fun! I thought it would be fun to share these projects here, so you can enjoy creating them for yourself, neighbor's, customers, and friends and family! 

Here's the instructions:
1. Cut a piece of cardstock color of your choice @ 4 1/4" x 11". 
2. Cut a piece of B&T paper of your choice @ 4" x 4".
3. Score the cardstock @ 1", 5 1/4", and 6 3/4". Fold all scoring lines with a bone folder. 
4. Glue the 4" x 4" B&T paper between the 1" and 5 1/4" scoring lines shown below, leaving a 1/4" on all sides. 
5. Using a 1" thin cut and die- cutting machine or 1" punch, cut a half-circle notch. The 1" circle should be cut centered on top of the 1" scoring line. Measure a 1/2" from the bottom of the circle notch and place your 2 1/2" circle thin cut. I use washi tape to secure the circle to the paper. That way it doesn't slide. Cut it out with your die-cutting machine. Make sure you save the center circle to be used for a tag. 
6. Now you're ready to decorate the front flap. You can use anything you have on hand! Just make sure not to cover the circle, so you can see the bag and treats popping through. 

7. You can use a 3" x 8" or 4" x 9" cello bag. 
Just simply add your treats. (This one I used 
freeze dried marshmallows and a hot cocoa packet)
You can add candy, chocolates, cookies, caramel popcorn, M&M's, 
and much more. Once you add the goodies, you will push the cello bag through the notch at 
the top and tie a ribbon, jute, or twine to the top of the cello bag. You can also add a cute tag before tying it too!

8. Make sure you flip the 1" flap over to the backside and secure with 
two Velcro circles. This will help hold it in place.

9. How fun to use the centers for tags! I used a retired circle tag thin cuts
for the back. Just glue to a larger circle or thin cut, add some fun embellishments, and stamp a holiday sentiment! So cute!!

Here's the shopping list for the supplies I used on the treat bag cover:
  • Z4390 If Snowflakes were Kisses stamp and thin cuts (retired, but still available)
  • Z3943 Circles Thin Cuts
  • Ice Grey tri-blend Marker (penguin)

Plaid Pumpkin Card

Happy Fall! 

I can't believe summer has officially come to an end! But I love Fall and the cooler temperatures, leaves turning colors, and pumpkin everything! 

This card has all the Fall feels! These plaid front stencils from CTMH are AMAZING!! You're going to love creating beautiful artwork with these! 

To create the plaid technique, I first taped down the stencil with some washi tape or masking tape. I sponged the large stripe first with a blending brush and honey butter ink pad. You can create darker or softer shades by how hard you sponge and how much ink you pick up. I sponged the smaller stripes in between the bigger stripe with pumpkin ink. I turned the large stencil opposite directions and sponged with mist ink. In between the large mist stripes, I sponged the smaller stripes with toffee ink. The colors look so pretty together! You will have so much fun creating so many different color combinations! 

Here's the supply list:

CC9239 Plaid Card Front Stencils
Z4755 Cozy Up - Cardmaking stamp + thin cuts
X6076 Pumpkin cardstock
Z6576 Pumpkin ink pad 
Z6539 Mist ink pad
Z6536 Honey Butter ink pad 
Z2828 Toffee ink pad
Z7518 Intense Black ink pad

Thank You Pumpkin Card

Hello everyone!
I have been a little MIA this past year due to some health problems. I took a break from a few things so I could focus on my health. I am excited to be back and start sharing my love of paper crafting with all of you again! πŸ’—

Here's a fun card I created using the X7296B "It's the Good Life" paper and Gnomes for Autumn stamp + thin cuts. How many of you love to decorate using blue pumpkins? I do! I love that they are non-traditional! They are so fun, and they look so cute! This card is perfect for using leftover strips, scraps, and zip strips! I love to create cards that I can use up scraps! I hate wasting! Lol

First, before you begin gluing strips, I used the toffee shimmer brush to splatter the top half of card. You can also use a water brush and toffee ink pad to pick up ink in the lid and splatter your card. 

I cut different sizes in length and width of the paper. Widths are 1/4", 3/8", 3/4", and 1/2". I laid the strips across the card diagonally and glued each one right next to each other. 

I used toffee and mocha cardstock for my sentiment and stamped "Thank you" in Intense black ink. I used the CC72317 Gnomes for Autumn - Scrapbooking Stamp set for the pumpkin, leaf, and sunflower. The "Thank you" stamp is from the Z7071 Floral Notes stamp set. I stamped them all in intense black ink. I colored the pumpkin in the Tri-blend vintage blue blend. The leaf and sunflower were colored in the Tri-blend Muted Brown Blend marker. The stem on pumpkin and center of sunflower were colored with the tri-blend Earth Brown marker. 
I used thin 3-D foam tape to pop out the sentiment, pumpkin, and leaf.
Have fun creating with this cute paper collection and stamps!
