I love a good GNOME pun…GNOEL…tee hee! I’m back with another July release card. The GNOEL digi stamp is THE cutest. A nice big dark sentiment and a big open image with plenty of room for coloring. (AND, there’s a matching cutable too!)
The WOODGRAIN COVERPLATE background Cutable is an easy answer for a great backdrop for a woodland image. The pine bough in the new SIMPLY WINTER Cutable file was too cute not to try out. These were tricky on my Silhouette but I’m not sure if it was me or maybe the wrong blade or pressure? I had to run it through twice – lucky I learned a little trick: DON’T UNLOAD THE MEDIA UNTIL YOU KNOW THAT IT’S CUT THROUGH YOUR CARDSTOCK. Obviously, all cardstock is different and might be slightly thicker than what you cut with last. Lots of little cuts for these but I LOVE them so much. They add texture and depth to the card.
I really just love the greenery with the the wood card base. WOODGRAIN ROCKS! This super cute little gnome has that giant ornament and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I actually cut two of them and colored both – more detail on the top layered gnome but I didn’t want the underneath gnome to look awkward.
Ribbon corners and enamel dots complete the look on this fun slimline card…ready for CHRISTMAS cardmaking anyone?
Head over to the shop and see what’s still available during the “going digi” sale…super deals right now!
Hey there crafty friends! It’s Kerry here and I’m back to share a fun little cuttable project I created using the new Red and Black Ornament Tags Cutable files and my Silhouette Cameo. I thought I would start prepping some cute tags for the season and am working on trying new cookie recipes…I am working on new healthy cookie recipes and am experimenting with some yummy ingredients in hopes that I will perfect the treats in time to plate them for Santa… This recipe includes oatmeal, vanilla, dates, egg and gogi berries. These seem to be really dark cookies and are not burnt. I think the color comes from the dates and gogi berries… They are tasty, but not perfect…yet!
I really love these little tags and they’re so easy to assemble. I chose to use only red and white and used the Copic YR01 to color Santa’s nose.
I will definitely be adding a little white pom-pom to the ball on his hat but that idea didn’t come until I was finished posting these pictures. I can’t wait to make some of the ornaments in metallic colors…That will be fun!
As a fun gift idea, I used a clear bag and tucked all the cookies into it. I added some tiny M&M’s and some festive mini Gobstoppers too. Yum!
Thanks for hopping over to check out my project. Remember to check out the store and take advantage of the 60% sale going on NOW until the end of the month.
Hey everyone! Angela back, with a fun card featuring Gnoel, one of the July digital stamps. I printed the version that has both the gnome but also the sentiment and cut down to a rectangle. Next I printed the gnome with the ornament and cut with my scan n cut.
Once cut colored with copics-
Skin- E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair and Mustache: W1, W3, W5
Hat: RV29, RV69, R35, R37, N1, N3, N5
Ornament: G05, G17, G28, YG09
Shoes: T1, T3, T5
Next I cut a pieces of cardstock down for a slimline card. I inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Next I cut pattern papers from the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Christmas to make my various layers. I inked all papers with the same walnut stain ink.
I used foam tape to pop the Gnome up on the card and add some dimension. I then added some enamel dots to the corners to add the finishing touches to the card.
I hope you enjoyed my card- and don’t forget the sale going on- 60% off stamps, dies, stencils and embellishments.
If you were curious to see how I made the Advent Calendar that I posted at the end of our Christmas in July Blog Hop. I created this video to show you how
My voice was feeling a little croaky, so I settled for captions instead. 😉
I created a little diagram of where to place the smaller and bigger boxes and what dies to use where. Also, how many numbers to cut to make it easier. And, I love the easy! You can download that diagram here.
YAYY! It’s the very first day of Sneaky Peek Week and TCP Tuesday! I am so excited to show you what The Cat Pack and I have been working on so diligently on. This release we will have 6 Stamp Sets and 4 CutUps Dies. One of the dies will be a FREE giveaway for any order over $65. (More on that die, later on in the week).
Today I am so happy to get back to The Cat’s Pajamas’ roots, so to speak. We started off over 12 years ago with two main characters, Sprinkle and Poochie. You’ve seen them in love, frolicking in the waves and in the snow. You may have gotten a peek at them when they were little, but you’ve never seen them as tiny babies. I wanted to bring you my “babies” at their first Christmas.
And, you know how The Cat Pack likes to bring you all sorts of techniques for Sneaky Peek Week, so we are staying with the Anything Goes Challenge.
So, let get started.
First up, Nancy Thomas creates a trio of sweet, sweet tags. This stamp set has 15 different images so there you could make quite a few tags without having duplicates.
What is so great about this stamp set is that you are now able to make Sprinkle and Poochie any color you like. Will they be grey and tabby striped like in Wendy McGaffey‘s card? Or perhaps, another color. Check out Wendy‘s blog to see a different version of this cute shaker.
Christine Okken’s card captures the wonder that is Christmas. What is in those boxes under the tree? Maybe we should open just one to see.
June Swart‘s Sprinkle strikes a pose and maybe a bit of terror in the heart of whoever she is aiming for. She creates a sweet ornament using the Snowflake Lace Paper Die as a background. To top it off, she adds a pretty stitched bow. The bow, by the way is one of our new dies and it’s a great die to use with those strips of paper that you’ve been saving (C’mon, admit it)
Here’s a video to show you just how easy it is to create that bow.
