Winter Frost DSP Curly Wreath



If you haven't made one of these curly wreaths yet you are missing out! It took about 2 hours from start to finish including a few breaks. It was worth every minute!!
 
 I started with a 14 inch green Styrofoam base available at most craft stores. There are smaller bases available but like they say, Go big or go home! The curls are made from the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper cut into 1/2 inch strips. I used both of the foil accented papers and 5 out of the 10 other sheets in the pack. There are two each of 5 double sided designs and 2 foil accented pieces in each pack. To make the curls, hold each 1/2 inch strip in the center and use a bone folder to curl the ends like you would a piece of ribbon. Then use a straight pin to attach each curl onto the base.
 
Don't try to follow a pattern while adding the curly pieces. I gave that up after about the fifth piece. I jumbled the curled pieces up and just started grabbing them.

Happy wreath making!

Santa's List

Yes, it is that time of the year! If you don't have an idea for your Christmas cards yet this one takes a while but it is gorgeous! I colored Santa's face, hand, and hat with markers. I added Dazzling Details to his beard and hair. The silver glimmer paper dots (office hole punch) make the snowflakes pop. The snowflakes are also popped up with Dimensionals under each layer. Don't forget to stamp the words on the whisper white background before you run it through your Big Shot.

Don't think that Halloween Happiness is just for Halloween. To make this Thanksgiving card I used  markers and colored in only the pumpkins that I wanted. After I stamped the pumpkins I punched them out (1-1/4 inch punch) so I could move them around under the punched designer paper (1 inch punch) to get them exactly where I wanted them.
 
I used Tags 4 You for the words. It is available in a bundle which includes both the set and the punch at a 15% discount. I stamped the words in Early Espresso and punched it out with the  Label Bracket Punch. Then I stamped them again in Tangerine Tango and punched out just the center with a 1-1/4 inch circle punch. I used a Dimensional to adhere it to the Espresso punch lining up the Vanilla swirls.
 
This would make a cute fall scrapbook page, too!

Six Sided Sampler

I wasn't going to get this set but then I kept seeing some really great cards made with it. Then I got it but I set is sit on my shelf for a month. I am so sorry I did that. It is a wonderful set for both card making and scrapbooking!! Even better- it comes in a bundle. You can order the set and a matching punch together and get a 15% discount.
 
I actually punched out each of the stamped shapes to make this card. It was so much easier than trying to line them up in the exact place you want them. Stamp 2 of each color. Cut one of the  wisteria and one of the pacific punched images in half. Line all punched and stamped images up on the top of a 5-1/4 x 4 piece of whisper white card stock. Use SNAIL to tape them on. Cut the edges that are hanging over. Run a 2-3/4 x 4 piece of pacific point card stock through your Big Shot with the honeycomb embossing folder. Attach it under the stamped and punched shapes. Add your ribbon. The words are stamped in gumball and punched out. Punch an additional image in gumball and cut it in half. Use SNAIL to attach it to the top and bottom of the word image. Use  dimensionals to hold it in place. Punch two leaves from the bird punch. Attach them to a butterfly you punched out of the new and beautiful silver foil paper. Attach it with a glue dot. Add a rhinestone. Attach this to a pool party base. Done!

It doesn't get much easier than two step stamping! Stippled Blossoms allows you to stamp a quick card with both elegance and depth. Cut out the Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder shapes using your Big Shot and the Labels Collection Framelits. Stamp the words on the white label. Stamp both full flower images in Wisteria Wonder. Stamp over those images with the matching accent stamp in Perfect Plum. Stamp the full leaf images in Old Olive then use Old Olive again for the accent stamp over them. Attach the stamped white label to the Wisteria label. Run the second piece of white card stock through your Big Shot. Attach it to the Wisteria base. Attach the labels to it using Dimensionals.  After the card is assembled go over the darker stamped areas of both the flowers and the leaves with Dazzling Details. Such beauty!

Organizing Scraps


I am so sorry I have been MIA. I have been cleaning and reorganizing my craft room. I finally have it set up and ready to go! The main reason I did it was so I can have craft time for small groups. I think there were 7-8 of us for the first Crafting With Chris. Ladies came over and made whatever they wanted to. Some were scrapbooking, some were making cards, and some were making small gifts. I set up my room where they could see what I have that they can use. We had a great time!
 
This is how I have organized my scraps now. They are in a file folder tub. In each file folder is a bag for each color. I have the colors grouped together (all blues, all yellows, etc.), tagged by name (computer generated tags), and in alphabetical order. I have never been happy with using scraps until now. The light weight tub can sit on the floor next to me or on a table if I am alone. Love it!

Best of Buterflies

 
This card is actually stamped and embossed on a window sheet! It was really easy. Be sure to use the embossing buddy so you don't get white specs all over it. The card front is randomly stamped with the flower from Blooming With Kindness, Pool Party ink on Pool Party card stock. The butterflies and words are embossed white craft ink with white embossing powder. It is attached to the card with ribbon strung through holes made with a hole punch through both the window sheet and card. There is another Pool Party flower stamped on the inside.

Backyard Basics

 
Backyard Basics is one of those great sets that has the matching framelits so you don't have to cut out anything. The bundle number for the set and framelits is 132728 for $36.50. Ordering them as a bundle will save you 15%! I also made this card using Crisp Cantaloupe and it is just as pretty. I added ribbon to the bottom of that one. Outlining the flowers and stems with a Sahara Sand Marker before you cut them out really makes them pop. I do that on a lot of my cards.

Secret Garden

 
You just can't go wrong with pink and green. This card would make anybody feel better! The embossing was easy. All I did was run the paper through my Big Shot in one direction then flip it over and run it through in the other direction. Yes, there is a line down the middle but I covered it up so it didn't matter. It is easier to stamp the words first then stamp the leaves around it. The flowers are held on with dimensionals and so are the flower centers.  Stamping the inside makes your card just a little more special. I stamp my envelopes, too.

They come in all the color families. You can even purchase little brads and add the Candy Dots to the tops of the brads. Very cute!

Daydream Medallions

 
You can't see it but this card has a window sheet on the front. The flower is actually on the inside. The butterfly and the greeting are the only things on the front.

 I cut and scored the whisper white base. Then I took a 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" of whisper white and laid it on top. I ran both layers through my Big Shot using the Floral Frames Framelit which created the opening. Then I ran the base through my Big Shot again using the Dotted Embossing Folder. I put a piece of Window Sheet  over the open on the inside using SNAIL, then taped the second cut piece of whisper white over that. That created my window.

 I sponged around the edges of Birthday Wishes (and the front of the card) and attached it with Dimensionals. I punched out a butterfly, added a flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack, then added a pearl. I glued that on after bending the wings up a bit.

The flower on the inside is very easy. I did use a bone folder to bend up the petals on all layers. The yellow layer is punched out of DSP. The rest are all Daydream Medallions on card stock. I used SNAIL to hold them together.
