Merry Christmas Deer Cards with Rae

Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of cards I have made with the December Card, Tags, and More kit, featuring Mintay Christmas Stories papers.

I created two  6X6 cards using a similar design.

Here they are:

I love that cute little deer on the papers, so I cut two of them out for these cards. This paper is perfect for fussy cutting! I also cut out some of the red poinsettias as well to add to the floral part of the cards.

I used a 6 X 6 piece of paper for the back layer of the cards, then cut two sheets of the 6 X 6 paper down to 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. Then I ripped the paper that was going on the bottom diagonally to create a “half and half” design. I distressed all of the edges, then glued these layers together, leaving room under the top layer to tuck in some lace (from my stash).

Next, I added some stenciling (snow “dot” pattern) with some glittery paste, and added the Merry Christmas titles.

On this card, I used the red paper and a die to cut the title, and added some of the Kaisercraft pearls to accent the title.

For this card, I added the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit. I embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing powder from my stash.

I cut out a fancy snowflake with an old Memory Box dies, and put it in the middle of the card, then added a larger flower from my stash, added the deer to the middle and added some of the small Kaisercraft roses from the kit.

After that, I tucked in the poinsettias that I fussy cut, then added more of the little Kaisercraft roses.

Here’s a couple of closeups from both cards showing the floral cluster/line.

Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Greetings Cards by Ginny

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing another set of cards created with the Cards Tags and More kit!

These cards are a little bit more modern and bold compared to the shabby chic set I made at the beginning of the month. I hope you like them!

 

 

Here is each card close up.

 

Here is a short process on how they were put together.

I started with the Card blank for my base.

 

Now for all the layers, each photo shows you each layer in order with the measurements.

 

 

 

 

Distress all edges

Layer and stick all pieces on the card base in order of size, largest to smallest.

Add a strip of gems down one side

And a group of flowers in the corner.

Lastly emboss the chipboard word greeting with black embossing powder and glue in place on the card.

Birthday Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

I have to admit, cards and tags weren’t my thing to begin with, but I am really getting into them now. Especially using these kits. Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of tags and cards. It also have a set of cards with envelopes.  Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a Birthday Tag and Card set.

How about some close ups:

I cut the tag out of the copper cardstock in the kit. Then I created a couple of layers of paper and cardstock and more paper. I fussy cut a few flowers from a sheet of the paper and added it in between my layers. I also added some of the tickets from the kit on top of the layers

The chipboard title and bling are from the kit and I just painted it with black gesso. The oval from is from my stash. I used a couple layers of black gesso, then randomly sprinkled some pink embossing powder on it.

For the mini card, it was done pretty much the same as the tag. I used the copper cardstock as a base, added some layers of paper and embellished with flowers, bling and a frame from my stash. Instead of using black gesso on the frame I used white. I still added the pink embossing powder. The limited edition title is also from my stash.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow us on all our various Social Media outlets.

Cards by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here I am today sharing 2 sets of cards made with September’s card kit.  You have cardstock, Maggie Holmes paper pack, flowers, lace and a set of dies !

 

For both cards, I pretty much used the same techniques.  I chose 5 different patterned papers from the paper pad and glued them on the cardstock.  Then I used the stencil that came with a Prima flower pack from the Scrapbook kit and used it on the papers with Modeling Paste.   I used a stamp from my stash as well as sprays to create texture.  At the end I finished with flowers and added some Gesso on the flowers.

For the next 2 cards, I used a white background and a border stamp from my stash. I chose two different papers for each card and put a frame made with the die cuts.  Added some flowers and embellishments from the Scrapbook kit and finished with splashes of color.

 


Material used

Maggi Holmes- Flourish 6×8 Paper pad
Bazzill Classic – Dark Kraft Cardstock 12 x 12
I Am Roses – Mixed Curly Flowers
Darice – Nested Doily Frame Die
Hand dyed seam binding

Card Monday

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am sharing some cards I created with the Card, Tags and more kit. I am not the best card maker, so it is always challenging for me. However, with this kit my cards came together pretty easy.

First, let’s take a look at the kit:

The kit has a 6×8 paper pad with 24 sheets of paper. Plus 2 different sizes of cardstock, flowers, a 4 piece die and hand dyed seam binding.

Here are my cards:

How about some close ups:

For this card, I did a peek a boo with 2 different sheets of paper. I tore the top one on a diagonal, distressed the edges and let the bottom sheet peek thru. I also did some faux stitching on the edges (designer Rae taught me this technique).

I also used the smaller die to cut a frame to slide under my ripped paper. Added some flowers, leaves and cheesecloth from my stash and called it done.

For my next card, I layered 2 sheets of paper. I again distressed the edges. I also cut out a banner from the bottom layer of paper. I added more flowers and ribbon, plus a sentiment sticker and it was done.

These were 2 very simple cards I created using elements form the Card kit. They didn’t take very long to create and I am happy with how they turned out.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

More Havana Cards with Rae

Happy Saturday, friends!

Today I’m sharing more cards that I made using the card kit featuring the Prima Marketing Havana collection. I LOVE the colors!

So I made two cards very similar in the way that I designed them. This first one is a 6×6 square, so it’s rather large.

I started with cutting my layers- the Kaisercraft cardstock is slightly darker, completely complimentary to the greens in the Havana papers. The white layers are die cuts- I used the Kaisercraft border die from the kit, and a floral die from my stash.

I added faux stitching to all of the paper layers with a sewing wheel, paper piercer and fine tip black marker, which you can see clearer in the closeup below.

I added some pretty crystals from my stash, as well as some black and white splatters  of India ink to complete the look. The chalk inks I used were Tsukinedo Dew Drop in Ocean Oasis, and the pink is Old Rose from Prima Marketing.

 

Here’s another card I made using the same design concepts, but I added some die cuts from dies in my stash.

Havana Cards and the Card Sketch with Rae

Happy Saturday, craft people!

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:

I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! 🙂 Here are two I made based on the sketch:

Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.

I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.

To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.

Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.

We’d love it if you used the kits to join the challenges, but if you aren’t already a subscriber, you can still play along with your own supplies. However, consider subscribing! http://tresjoliekits.com/services/

We do have a couple of August card kits still available here!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Card sketch

Hey everyone, it’s Kim. Today I am sharing the cards I made using the card kit and the sketch. I have to say, I’m not the best with cards, so it was good to have a sketch to follow. I’m not sure how that works though. I can create a sketch, but can’t create a card from scratch. Oh well, moving on.

Have you seen our card kit this month? It is amazing!! It features papers from Prima, a die and lots of fun embellishments. Take a look:

There are still  few kits available. You can do a single purchase here or you can subscribe here.

Here is the card sketch for the challenge this month. Make sure you join in on the fun. Post your entry for the card challenge in our Facebook Cafe.

You don’t have to be a kit subscriber to enter, just please don’t enter using products from another kit club.

Here are my takes on the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here is that pretty die and my flower cluster. I used the banner tag in the cluster for my sentiment instead of on the bottom.

For my center image on this card, I used the die cut twice and added the wood doily as the main piece. Then I added smaller flowers to accent it.

I love the bakers twine in the kit. The colors are perfect for this bright summery card kit. Plus there is plenty of card stock to make several cards or tags.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Quick & Easy Greeting cards by Phyllis

Hi Crafty Friends,  Phyllis here to share my last project for Tres Jolie using the June Card Kit.   I decided to do some simple cards!  I used the same design on both cards but different papers.

You can see step by step with pictures how I created these cards!

I began by using my paper punch and cutting some flowers out from Fabscraps paper pack.  I did this with 2 different paper patterns and then layered them.

Here is the layered flowers.  Then from my stash I added some flatback pearl beads to the center of the flower.

Next I used Kaisercraft’s Doily stamp and Kaisercraft green ink pad from the card kit,  randomly stamped on Kaisercraft’s White premium cardstock that measures 6×6.  I also used the lavender ink pad for the other card,  same process.

Once the stamping was finished I cut out some tags from Fabscraps and added some twine from my stash.

In the Fabscraps paper pack you will find some diecuts and sentiments,  I picked the window diecut and then a couple sentiments.

Then I started laying down some of the flowers and also added some leaf dicuts from the Fabscraps paper pack.

My last step was to flick some ink spray from my stash all over the card.

So get your paper punches out and create quick and easy greeting cards!

I hope you get a chance to purchase this card making kit,  so many options!
