Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Gift Card Post Box

Hi everyone! How is your holiday season going? Are you finished shopping, got presents wrapped, tree up and decorated? Me? Nope, only a few presents are wrapped and I still need to put ribbon and bows on the packages. YIKES! This will probably be my last post this week so I can catch up on everything that I need to do around the house and be ready for Christmas…I feel the walls closing in on me…also I have projects that needs to be worked on for Eileen Hull’s Chapter 1 2023 Release…can you believe that 2023 is right around the corner? I can’t!

Anyways, I found this project in my stash of unfinished projects. I had painted and put it together but that is as far as I got with it. I used Eileen Hull’s Post Box Diecut, the lid used from the Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut (retired), Ornament Box Diecut, Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with a couple other dies. So let’s get started and finish this project!

I had painted this Post Box Diecut on both sides and once dry I adhered together. I had also painted the frame/lid from the Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut (retired)and glued that to the back of the box. I used a Mod Podge to seal the whole box and then I lightly inked over it to give it an aged look.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock to fit around the box which I folded and glued the ends together to create a belly band.

I cut a circle out of patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and three wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits. I adhered all three wreaths to the circle before gluing all to the belly band.

I applied a piece of an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a piece Surfaces Cork Roll and placed a deer thinlit from the Darling Deer Thinlits onto the cork paper and run through the Diecut Machine. I inked the deer with a couple of chalk inks.

I applied the deer to the center of the belly band and a tiny gem to its nose. I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment from a piece of cardstock and added to the circle.

I finished by adding a seal punch to the top of box and two holly thinlits from the Doodle Christmas Thinlits and three gems to finish this project.

It’s a perfect to hold a gift card and some candy or a tiny trinket. What would you put inside it?

Jolly Old St. Nicholas Notepad

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick project I created for Eileen Hull using the Ornament Box Diecut, Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder and leaf sprigs from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits. This would make a great gift along with a pretty ink pen for the person who likes to take notes or make lists. Anyways, let’s get started!

First, I measured the notepad to get the dimensions, my notepad measures 5″x8″ but I added around another 2 inches onto the 8 inch side before cutting a piece of Red Cardstock for the cover.

Next, I folded and glued the flap onto the back of the notepad. I had a strip of patterned cardstock leftover from another project that I added to the flap to dress it up.

For the cover I cut from a Mint Green Cardstock one Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit along with a piece patterned cardstock slightly larger than the die and adhered both to the cover. I punched a three inch circle from patterned cardstock and cut a circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and then embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly sanded over the raised edges of the embossed edges.

Before gluing both circles to the flap I added two strips of cardstock, as banners down the side of the Skinny Mini Elements die.

I fussy cut a Santa from a piece of scrapbook paper and added him to the side of the embossed circle. A patterned piece of cardstock and the “Jolly Old St. Nicholas” sentiment (that I cut from scrapbook paper) I glued across the embossed circle.

I dug into my stash of Christmas embellishments and found pre-cut poinsettias. I cut out four leaf sprigs from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and adhered around the side of the embossed circle along with the poinsettia which I added a gem to the center to finish off this project.

Hopefully this project will give you ideas not only for Christmas but for other occasions too.

Happy Holidays Poinsettia Cards

Hi everyone and Happy first day of December! I want to share a couple of cards I created using leftover scraps and cardstock from Blank Page Muse by Pam Bray’s Tattered and Worn 6″x6″ Paper Pad. Let’s get started!

For the first card I folded the black and white dotted cardstock from the Tattered and Worn Paper Pad in half to create a 3″x6″ card base. I cut a 7/8″x6″(scrap of green cardstock from the Cyan Consortium 6″x6″ Paper Pad) and a 3/4″x6″ patterned cardstock and adhered to the card base.

Next, I punched out a circle from patterned cardstock, inked around the circle and placed glue in the center of the circle before placing onto the card base.

I cut out four poinsettias from Watercolor Paper and holly from Green Cardstock from a Christmas set of thinlits by Momenta. I lightly inked over the edges of all the flowers and holly, three of those flowers and the rest of the holly will be used on the next card. I glued the holly to the back of the poinsettia before placing in the center of the circle.

I placed three gold gems in the center of the flower, added Foam Pop Dots to the back of a Happy Holidays sentiment before placing onto the card base. Lastly I added loops of gold thread under the circle to finish this card.

The second card I did the same steps with the same cardstock from the Worn and Tattered Paper Pad to create a card base. I cut a patterned piece of cardstock 1/2″x6″ and adhered to the card base.

I glued the holly to the back of each poinsettia, added gold gems to the center of each along with loops of gold thread before placing onto the card base. I finished off by adding foam pop dots to the back of the sentiment before placing underneath the poinsettias.

My plan is to share a project everyday for the next 24 or 25 days…fingers crossed. That being said please stop back by the blog tomorrow for another Christmas inspired project!

Be Merry Santa Card

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick and easy Christmas card in not so traditional colors.

I have the Be Merry and Floral Frame Embossing Folders by Brenda Walton (retired). I’ve used the floral frame embossing folder in several past projects but have never used the be merry embossing folder so I thought I would try my hand at making a card with it.

I placed a Lime Cardstock into the folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. I used a combo of a plum and watermelon chalk inks and lightly inked over the raised image on the cardstock. Next I applied Glitter Glue to different raised areas on the cardstock.

I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock, 5″x7 1/8″, matted the embossed image with White Cardstock before adhering to the card base. I punched a circle from pink cardstock and fussy cut a Santa face from a scrap piece of cardstock and glued both to the bottom corner of the card. I finished off by adding Clear Sequins randomly to the card.

Sparkles Sparkly Snowflake Slimline Card

Hi everyone! I’m back this month with another card using my Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Clear Stamp Set! I would have had this blog post out sooner but came down with a nasty cold that took forever to get over and a wedding album to finish while not feeling my best. UGH! But anyway, I’m back and getting better each day.

I started by placing the snowman face stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inking with Black Ink (waterproof) and stamping an assortment of images onto Cardstock and Watercolor Paper so I could work on projects as I found time. Also some of the images didn’t stamp clean but, no problem, I made them work for each project I created (more projects to come later). A side note I forgot to use the magnet to hold the paper down and that is how I didn’t get a clear image…totally my fault.

This image was one that it didn’t stamp clean so I decided to to use pastels to add “smudges” around the eyes, nose and mouth so the image wasn’t a complete loss. I hate wasting the watercolor and cardstock! I filled in eyes, nose and mouth with chalk pastels and Colored Pencils.

I used the Journal Diecut to cut the card base for a regular slimline card. I folded a piece of cardstock in half and used Washi tape to hold in place on the diecut. I made sure the card was 3 1/2″ across when I placed on the diecut before running through the Diecut Machine. A regular slimline card measures 3 1/2″x 8 1/2″ and will fit into a #10 size envelope. I added a snowflake patterned piece of cardstock, a stripe of patterned cardstock to the card base, matted the snowman image, added Foam Pop Dots to the back before adding to one end of the base.

I stamped the sentiment and matted to a piece of cardstock before gluing both, sentiment and snowflake ornament, to the base. I have a box of these snowflake ornaments that I got for dirt cheap so I use them regularly in various projects. All I do is cut off the “hanger” if I’m going to use it in a project like this.

I forgot to add that I applied glitter glue to the eyes of the snowman and there you have it! Also if you aren’t following Blank Page Muse on their social medias you can find them on:

Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set Release

Hi everyone! Guess what?!?! I now have a set of stamps I’ve designed with Blank Page Muse!!!Can you tell I’m so excited? The stamp set is called Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Slimline Stamp Set.

I designed this in mind with making mini slimline cards but you can do so much more with this stamp set. I used a sheet of patterned cardstock from a 6″x6″ paper pad, folded in half, to create this card but a standard mini slimline measures 3 1/2″x6″. I figured what is half an inch? Plus its a great way to use up some of those 6″x6″ pads that are laying around.

I placed the snowman face and sentiment stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with waterproof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock. I dug out my chalk pastels, Colored Pencils to color in the face and I filled in the eyes with clear glitter glue.

I adhered two strips of patterned cardstock to the base of the card and placed the snowman face off center of the card. Next I cut a snowflake from Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits out of vellum placed and glued slightly off the card…I cut the excess off and decorated with light blue gems. The final step I matted the sentiment and placed Foam Pop Dots to the back before adding to the lower corner of the card. I also inked around the base of the card with chalk ink.

I’ll be sharing more projects with this stamp set later on so be sure to stop back by! Also use code BPMTonya to get 15% off this stamp set along other purchases too. So be sure to head to Blank Page Muse’s website and purchase Sparkles Snowman Happy Holidays Stamp Set.

Season’s Greetings Truck Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I am back with my first project of the month for Momenta! It is hard to believe that in less that 20 days Christmas will be here…YIKES! I am in full crazy mode trying to get everyone bought for, put the tree up and decorate. If you are like me you need quick craft projects that can be whipped out in a hurry. Well, here is a quick gift card holder project that takes 30 minutes or less to complete. 
I found this Happy Holiday Truck Cut and Emboss Diecuts at my locate Tuesday Morning. I cut two truck diecuts from a sheet of red cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad using the Freestyle Diecutting and Embossing Machine. The wheels I used a scrap of black cardstock (placed a scrap of an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of the black scrap of cardstock) from the same paper pad and placed over the wheels of the die and cut out. I did a little fussy cutting around the wheels, removed the backing from the adhesive sheet and place each black wheel on top of the wheels of the truck.
I lightly inked around the edges of the truck diecuts with a red chalk ink. Next I cut out the railings, happy holidays sentiment and packages in white cardstock for the truck (2 times for each)  and adhered both railings to each truck diecut.
Before gluing the packages to either side of the truck I inked over the edges with the red chalk ink and added a little washi tape to the top. Before adhering the bottom of the truck diecuts together I cut out two trees and adhered to the truck bed. Lastly I inked over the edges of the Happy Holidays sentiment and added to the truck bed along with a gift card.
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.  If you aren’t following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at:
