Hello Winter layout by designer Patty Folchert

Looking for the perfect accents for your winter photos? This brand new stamp & die set from Hampton Art was just what I needed to highlight a sledding photo from our marathon winter last year. Paired up with some cool shades of Soup Staples III and a super fun stencil by Jillibean Soup and it becomes a real keeper. 


Crazy cute snowflake stamps and die set, I could not resist them. As you can see they made great accents for this winter layout of my son’s first real sledding adventure. This layout began with a sketch by Scrapbook Generations, it is a wonderful way to speed up the creative process. I selected some Soup Staples III papers and got to work. Following the sketch I cut out the border strips, banner pieces and blocks. Then I added some stitching for extra texture. Then I had some fun with the title, using a mix the media “hello” stencil with charcoal gray ink and some teal alphabeans. 


Next I stamped the five snowflakes onto patterned paper with gray ink from the Soup Staples III collection and then loaded them into my Cuttlebug and using the die cut them each out. Next I added them to the page with 3D foam dots and embellished them with white pearl centers.  I then stamped the subtitle “Baby it’s cold outside” onto brick patterned paper in gray ink as well. Last I added some sparkle with the brand new Jillibean Soup Star Sequins in blue and sprinkled them around the page as shown.


You can create this layout and step into your own Winter Wonderland too. 

Frosty Fun,
Patty

Three cards featuring Jillibean Soup's Wire Words by designer Gretchen McElveen

Good morning! When I saw all the new Jillibean Soup products I instantly fell in love with the fun wire words! I know the words can be adhered with a little glue or some clear adhesive, but I thought it might be fun to get out a needle & thread and sew them instead. I used the “love” and “hello” to make a couple of fun greeting cards and then the “joy” for a Christmas card. I love the way the stitching on the words looks on the cards! Thanks for looking and thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Bright and Cheery Neon Snowflakes card by designer Lori Williams

The background was random stamped with snowflakes stamps and in various neon colors.  Since the ink I used was pigment ink I coated with embossing powder and set the color.  This also helped to give a nice glossy finish to each of the snowflakes.  This was so simple but it makes for a wonderful one of a kind background for a card.  I love the way this stamp set has a coordinating die set which is how I cut out the perfect snowflake that tops off the ribbon.

Holiday Tradition layout by designer Patty Folchert

We have some wonderful family traditions around the holidays and making a gingerbread house and decorating Christmas cookies is one of those special days we look forward to every year at my parent’s house.  This layout using the new Jillibean Soup-Holly Berry Borscht collection captures our holiday tradition perfectly. 


I just couldn’t decide on one of the new stamp tags so I picked four of my favs. Then I stamped them in charcoal gray onto white cardstock. Next I began to build the layout with papers from the Holly Berry Borscht collection staggered with the two photos as shown. I also have been dying to try the new Mix the Media stencils, so I added the “happy” one into my title using a cats eye  ink in green. I really love the added effect of the stencil to the title. The rest of the title was created with a wise word sticker and green alphabean stickers. Then I wanted to add some stitched texture, so with the sewing machine I stitched along several borders as shown. Then the tags were cut out, given ribbon tabs and added with 3D pop up dots. Last several wood embellishments were added, stars and snowflake. Another ribbon was added under the title block.


Capture one of your favorite holiday traditions with this layout, the grid pattern makes it quick and easy. Do you have a favorite holiday tradition? We would love to hear about it, please comment below.

Special Delivery Tags by designer Patty Folchert

This tag will serve double duty as a tag holder now and a gift card holder later. It was created using a brand new Hampton Art stamp and die set and new Jillibean Soup Holly Berry Borscht papers. Here is the new Hampton Art Set:



To make the tag holder base I used a layered combination of Holly Berry Borscht papers and sewed around the three sides to create the pocket. 


Next I stamped the tags onto kraft paper using brown ink and red ink for the sentiments. Then using my Cuttlebug I used the included tag die to cut each out. Then I used a hole punch at the top of each so that they can easily be added to a gift later with ribbon or twine.


Last I added the “special delivery” tag from a mix the media ephemera pack and a wood snowflake accent on one of the noel tags with a double gold twine bow. Last I added a gold KI memories glitter dot to the center of the Maya Road snowflake and a double gold twine bow to tag holder top as well.

This will make a perfect gift card holder once I use all the tags inside. Nothing says you’re special like a handmade gift card holder.

Joyful Delivery,
Patty

Happy Holidays card by designer Patty Folchert

This Holiday greeting began with a brand new stamp set from Hampton Art. 


It has beautiful Holiday sentiments, tree, ornaments and a wreath. I used only the tree and “Happy Holiday” sentiment to make this card.


The base of the card is a combination of new Holly Berry Borscht papers from the 6x6 paper pad by Jillibean Soup, with a doily added in from a Mix the Media ephemera pack. I added some stitching with my sewing machine and then began stamping. The tree was stamped onto some of the jingle bell paper and the sentiment was stamped in red ink onto a file card from the Holly Berry Borscht peapods pack. I also added some stitching to the file card. Using KI Memories glitter dots I added the white ornaments to the stamped tree. All of the pieces were added to the card including another die cut poinsettia from the peapod pack and a silver bow to finish it off.


Simple as that, a little stamping, sewing and sticking and it is done. May your Holiday season be full of all of your favorite things!

Season’s Greetings,
Patty

Adorable Penguin Easel card and Elegant Christmas Tag by designer Lori Williams


I'm in love with this adorable stamp and die set...I'm not sure how I'm going to continue to use this one come summer, but darn if I won't find a way somehow, LOL.  The matching stamp and dies make it super each to cut out the penguins perfectly for your projects.  I also love easel cards and they are super easy to make but really give a wow factor when opened.  You can create all sizes of easel cards, this one just happens to be a 5 x 5.

A trio of Holiday cards by designer Gretchen McElveen featuring Jillibean Soup

It is time to work on your Christmas cards! I’ve got a few to share with you today that might help to jumpstart your creativity. I used kraft cardstock as the base of each of these cards. All the patterned paper is from the Jillibean Soup Holly Berry Borscht 6x6 paper pad. Then I decorated them with pieces from packs of ephemera, label stickers, and cork embellishments from Jillibean Soup. I also added a little sparkle with Glitter Dots from KI Memories. Sweet and simple!

Under the Mistletoe card by designer Patty Folchert

One of the things I love most about the new Holly Berry Borscht collection from Jillibean Soup is the color combo possibilities. This card uses cool tones the new stamp set, vellum and the fabulous glitter pack.

Under the Mistletoe card by Patty Folchert

The base of the card is  a lovely new polka dot in the softest shade of blue, Read Me paper,  from the Soup Staples III collection. Then I layered the Holly Berry Borscht- Smidge of Snowflakes first then a strip of 1 Cup of Holly Berries in the center. Next I stamped the new Holly Berry Borscht “Mistletoe” stamp onto white cardstock cut out and set aside. Now it was time to grab the brand new Glitter & Sequin Pack from the same collection, I sprinkled some blue stars and silver glitter into a vellum envelope to add some playful interaction to the card. 


Then I found the north pole sticker tag and layered it under the stamped tag which I added with 3D foam dots and with a silver twine bow. Last I added the “Cheer” arrow sticker also from the coordinating sticker sheet from the Holly Berry Borscht collection.

Does someone special in your life need a mistletoe hint? Then this is the card for you! 

Merry Mistletoe,
Patty

Mason Jar inspired card by designer Patty Folchert

This card was inspired by the ongoing trend of mason jars and chalkboard products. I also wanted to utilize one of the new Stamp and Die sets from Hampton Art in a unique way. 


First cut out the mason jar shape from chalkboard paper, then outline the design as shown in chalkboard marker. Then the tag was where I began and stamped the snowflake design first then added the sentiment from the stamp& die set in teal blue ink and aqua ink. Then I cut some vintage gingham fabric to make the jar bow and tied it around the lid. The new You + Me printed cork set from Jillibean Soup was a perfect accent for the bow. After that I cut out a white snow drift from white cardstock and added to bottom. Then using the die from the set I cut out three trees from the white cardstock. I added the trees with 3D pop up dots as shown. Then the trees needed some sparkle so I added the new star sequins with liquid glue from the Jillibean Soup/Glitter & Sequin Set from Holly Berry Borscht collection.  Last I had to make it snow in my jar, so I added the KI Memories Glitter dots in white.


Perfect topper for a Christmas gift is what I am thinking. What are you thinking? Did this project inspire you? I would love to hear about it, feel free to comment below.

Trio of Trees card by designer Patty Folchert

Occasionally I enjoy playing with non-traditional colors for Holidays, this card does that with a Christmas card. The KI Memories/Playlist collection is most likely not usually used for a Holiday card, but why not? As you can see when paired up with a brand new Stamp & Die set from Hampton Art it really came to life.


Using white cardstock I stamped the three different tree designs in green and pink ink as shown. Then I cut them out using the matching die from the set. The card base was cut from KI Memories Playlist collection- Volume, then I layered on two mats in Cover Art and Rhythm. Then I cut out the icon squares from the Cover Art paper and added with adhesive as shown. Next I stamped in black ink the Sentiment onto a tab from Audience paper. Then I grabbed the sewing machine and added some stitching for a texture boost. Then all that was left was to add the happy little forest using 3D pop up dots.


Voila! There it is, a fun handmade Holiday card in a non-traditional pink, green and black color combo. You have to check out all the new stamp and die sets, so easy and so much fun.
