I’ve been away for a little while…but I’m here today to share my Country Craft Creations, Creative Design Team cards and projects.
First up are my November Craftology Box cards that I made using the Simple Stories “Very Merry” paper collection.
This card I call “Baby it’s Cold Outside.” The sentiment is a cut-apart from the paper collection and the background is from the 6 x 8 paper pad. I fussy cut the snowman from a cut-apart and popped him up on fun foam. I created a broom with some rolled Kraft paper that I fringe cut; the broomstick is an ink distressed Q-tip with the ends snipped off.
Here is the inside of the card. I glued the sentiment on the left side so that I could use the right to create a message for the recipient. I gave a few snowflakes a coat of Glamour Dust and attached them to my sentiment.
This card is “Here Comes Santa Claus.” I started with a specialty card base that was part of the kit. I used the cut-apart for my sentiment and I added a poinsettia flower that I made with my Magnolia dies. The paper bow was constructed with my envelope punch board.
Here’s the inside of the card. The evergreen tree frame is an Echo Park die and I used some white acrylic paint to give the evergreen boughs some snow effects then I covered the paint with stardust stickles once it was dry. I cut out a cute truck from the set of stickers in the kit and popped it up with fun foam. The sentiment is also a sticker from the collection.
My third card, “Peace on Earth,” was crafted with another specialty card base. I inked all my paper panels and the card base with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The poinsettia was created with a Spellbinders die and the little pinecone accent on my bow is a chipboard element from the collection with a rhinestone brad in the middle. I also created a magnetic closure for this card.
The sentiment on the inside of my card is a cut-apart from the collection. I fussy cut a flower with pinecone image from the paper and attached it with fun foam for dimension.
For the last card, “Winter Wonderland,” I used the Evergreen tree frame die again with a cut-apart that I modified to allow the sentiment to show through the frame. I sprinkled some extra thick embossing powder on my plaid background paper and heated the powder under the paper to create a snow effect. I added some white seam binding with a square knot and attached the pearl snowflakes that came with the kit to the front of my card.
The inside of my card has a cute peppermint hot cocoa cut-apart image with a sticker sentiment that I attached with fun foam.
My last project I created with the Craftology Box kit is a cute "Merry Christmas 12 x 12 Layout" scrapbook page. The background pattern paper was perfect for this design. I created my poinsettia with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and embossing combo. Tamra carries this die in the store. I love the texture it gives my layout. The ribbon is also part of the kit and the “Merry Christmas” title is a large chipboard piece from the collection. I also adhered several rhinestones from my stash about the page for a bit of glitz.
