A tri-fold card, a template and a winner

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful shabby chic/floral kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards, birthdays, weddings or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a love card and used a template to create the base.

This is a 4×6 card.  I used a 6 x 12 sheet of cardstock  to create the base.

Here is the template to download:

Card template

How about some close-ups:

I used the template for the base of the card. Then I decided on my papers for all my sections. I inked all the edges before gluing them down.

I left the inside flap bare, this way I could add whatever sentiment I wanted later. This gives you a better look of how the card folds. I love the mix of patterns on the papers. The chipboard rose is from the kit. I used some diamond stickles from the mixed media kit to make it sparkle.

Here is another view of the back side of the card. You can add little pop-up elements all over this card. They make fun surprises.

 

Now for a winner.

Beginner Cards

Hello crafty friends! Jeanne here back to share with you these super cute cards that I created this week using the October Cards, Tags, & More. I had intended on this being a short tutorial since they are easy to put together for those of you who might have just started crafting and might get intimidated to create cards as I was. I unfortunately erased my photos by accident on my phone. I have the worst habit. But I’ll do this  on another blog post here in the near future. Anyhow I created these cards in no time and that I love about this kit is that it comes with everything you need to create a quick card.

I used the white card stock from the kit, as well as papers from the collection that was in the kit which is Couture Creations My Secret Love, I used some of the ephemera and stickers from that same collection. The only thing I added was the colored card stock , I added it in between the white card stock and design paper as well as some dimensional dots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These cards were very easy to create and propping the ephemera and sentiment on pop dots makes the card have more interest. I know these are perfect for those who are beginning either in paper crafting or beginner in making cards in general. I know that when I began creating cards, I was pretty intimidated and I did go thru many YouTube videos , blogs , and of course Pinterest.

I hope that you like what I created with this beautiful card kit for this month. There are still kits left so don’t hesitate, run over to Tres Jolie and get your hands on this kit or if you want to purchase one of the mixed media or scrapbook kits too, go to this link and see them there. There are also kits from previous months for sale as well.

See you all next week again! I will be back with my sketch challenge project I created. Please join up, you don’t have to have one of these kits to join, work with what you have. We would love to see what you create and you can win something great from Tres Jolie if you put your entry here.

Hugs,

Jeanne Rodriguez

“Beautiful Love” Circle Card

Hello friends,

Glad to be back with another fun project using the September Cards, Tags & More kit. Today I’d like to share a cute circle card I made – without cutting dies! Believe it or not, I don’t have any circle dies, so I had to resort to using two bowls from my kitchen (clean, of course! LOL) – one larger and one a bit smaller. I traced them onto my card base, making sure the top was over the base fold line, and then cut my patterned paper using the same “technique”.

I then layered a paper doily from my stash, various elements from the included cut-out sheets, seam binding, and a quick sentiment.

The last touch was to dry brush white paint (with a sponge dauber – it allows more control), art stones (Prima), and paint splatters – and Wella! All done! This was a fun, quick card, and I like the round shape.

Thanks for visiting today. Please make sure to come back and see the gorgeous projects my other design teammates are creating this month. We feature a new project almost every day here on the blog!

Tres Jolie can also be found through these links as well. Take a minute to stop by. You’ll make new friends and find great creative inspiration!

A card and gift tag set

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful coral/peachy colored kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards for birthdays or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a birthday card and gift tag set.

This is a big card, I used the full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to create the base. I used another sheet to die cut the frame.

How about some close-ups:

For the background I layered 2 sheets of paper. I used a peach pastel chalk ink on the edges of the paper. I also did some faux stitching and stamping on the top layer.

I used some foam tape on the frame to give the card some more dimension. I also added some foam tape to the flower. The frame was inked with the peach chalk ink and the edges was rubbed with some metallic wax in firebird. The butterfly was dry brushed with a metallic golden coal paint (I wish you could see how shimmery it is). The center piece is a resin made from a moud and rubbed with the same wax used on the frame.

The base of the tag was created the same way as the card. The oval frame is the inside of the die cut. It got the same ink and wax treatment as well. The center is a small leftover resin piece. I just painted it with a bit of the metallic gold paint. I punched a hole in the corner and added the seam binding so it could be tied to a gift bag of just a gift.

Vintage Artistry Coral Altered File Folder

Hello everyone! Today I am up on the blog to share with you this fun project that I created for this week using the September Card, Tags, & More Kit. This collection comes with the beautiful collection of papers from 49 & Market, Vintage Artistry Coral. Aside from the paper, I was anxious to use the cut out sheets that came with it. All that ephemera was absolutely beautiful! That is where I got the idea for an altered manila file folder. I hadn’t made one like this before but I was truly inspired by a very talented crafter that always has been an inspiration to me. Her name is Jenifer Stephens, her YouTube channel is A Trace Of Sparkle. Here is what I created with this amazing kit from Tres Jolie Kits!

I absolutely love how this turned out! There are many different ways that you can create these manila folders. I actually used 2.5 folders for this project. Since they weren’t coffee nor tea dyed I decided I would do a quick version of it so using Tim Holtz Distress Stain Ground Espresso , a sponge brush and a spray water bottle. I really love how it turned out! Here are some samples of this.

So this idea above works fast if you don’t have any folders, papers. ephemera, laces , etc coffee/tea dyed and you want to make something fast. I hope that you will give this a try and if you do make sure you share with us what you created over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe

If you are undecided or just saw this kit now, you have to purchase this one! I can promise you that you will NOT be disappointed at all! It truly is amazing and there are so many projects you can create with it! I also used the Darice thin metal die that was included in this kit that inspired the front page of this project. Here is a video of the entire project.

Well friends I hope that you like what I have created for this week using this gorgeous kit! There is still time to get your Cards, Tags, & More kit or there are two other kits, the Scrapbook Kit and Mixed media kit that you can purchase as well. I will be back actually next week with a project using the Scrapbook kit! Until then I hope you check in daily to see the rest of the design team share their beautiful creations!! See ya next week! XOXO

Hugs,

Jeanne

“Vintage Artistry Coral” 3×3 Shabby Notecards

Hello crafty friends! I’m back this month with some beautiful collections again from Tres Jolie Kits! The project I picked to do as my first project were these cute and pretty easy 3×3 notecards. I used the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit to create these.

I began by cutting a few sheets of the 8.5 X 11 white card stock that was included in the kit into 3 X 6 pieces , once you have cut the amount of card bases you are going to want to make then you take your score board & bone folder or score tool and score your base at the 3in mark . Which of course is the center where you will be making your fold.

     

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

   

 

Once you have all of  your card bases folded in half, set them aside . Now you can pick out the papers from the 49 & Market Vintage Artistry Collection(Coral). Once you have chosen the papers you might like to use for your cards. I then cut them about 1/8 inch shorter than the size of the base. After finishing up with those papers, I took my Prima Marketing Distress Tool , you are welcome to use any distress tool or even a pair of scissors to distress the edges of the design paper or you can also choose to leave them without distressing. That is completely your choice. I myself love how it looks a little more shabby with the edges distressed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then adhered the distressed papers onto the folded base. As a side note, I normally like to add colored card stock to the inside of the card, usually the color of the design paper, which in this case had a soft coral color. I add this so you can write down your inside message. I didn’t have any without the texture that would coordinate it so I ended up using American Crafts Textured card stock. But since you won’t be able to actually write on this kind of paper I cut some of the left over white card stock that I used for the base.

I then had to finish up the front so I added some pieces of the 49 & market Vintage Artistry Coral Washi Tape from the kit onto the cards in different directions. I also decided I would add some stenciling to these cute cards . On half of the cards I mixed up some DecoArt Deco Media Crackle Paste with some of the Finnibair Textured Powder from a previous Tres Jolie Kit. I applied it with a spatula onto a Prima Marketing Doily Stencil.

For the other half of the cards I mixed up the same texture/crackle mix and then added some Prima Marketing Color Bloom Spray in Ginger Coral color, although it turned out more pink than I wanted , it still added a little color to the lighter design paper that had a lighter background on it. For these cards I applied the mixture onto the Feather Stencil from Brutus Monroe .  I then used my heat tool to dry them as well as allowing more of the crackles to come thru. They are more noticeable on the ones with the white. I also used the same Crackle Paste on the chipboard butterflies that came with the kit. I did that on half of the cards and for the other half I used some of the butterflies that were in the paper collection perforated sheet. Lastly I added some sentiments from the Finnabair Art Daily Planner Sentiment Booklet and added some snippets of lace on half of them!

There are a variety of projects that you can create with this kit. I just decided that I would create these note cards since I like to add them to swaps , happy mail, or just to say “Hello”! I hope that you enjoyed what I created for my first project using this month’s kit. Keep checking in daily for more projects from my wonderfully talented team mates!! I know you will have lots of great inspiration and I do hope that you will join in this month’s mood board challenge! You can share what you create over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe, there is an album where your entries go in. So try it out! Well I’ll see ya all next Friday with another project!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Simple Card Trio

Hello friends!

Happy Tuesday and welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog. Today I’d like to share with with a very simple card trio using the August Cards, Tags & More kit. This is such a fun, versatile kit and can be easily mixed with elements from our companion Scrapbooking and Mixed Media kits.

The first card I’d like to share is based on this month’s sketch for our challenge at the Tres Jolie Cafe. I thought it would be fun to show how easily you can create a card from a layout sketch.

Here’s the sketch…it’s a beauty!

And here’s my card…

This card was so simple to make. I cut an inch off one of the white album pages (basically removing the binding holes) that are included in the kit and used it as my card base. I then applied crackle paste (my favorite medium!) randomly to the entire base and began layering my elements. I just LOVE the colors in this kit. The Craft O’ Clock papers are so stunning and Kim chose the perfect coordinating embellishments!

For my second card I tore a strip of the blue script patterned paper , layered tags and Prima leaves from the scrapbooking kit, floral cut outs, and flowers. For a cohesive look on all three cards I added seam binding as a final element.

  

I also used a torn strip of patterned paper as the base for my last card. I literally took a hodge podge of elements that were on my desk and adhered them in layers to create my composition. For a final touch I mixed a bit of the Bundled Sage distress oxide spray with water and brushed it lightly into a few nooks and crannies.

  

That’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed these quick, simple cards. Notice they have no sentiments – I decided to leave them blank for now. I will add personalization when I’ve decided who I am sending them to.

Enjoy the rest of your week friends – and be sure to visit our blog again soon- it’s updated often with gorgeous creations and inspiration from my other design teammates.

Hugs,
Cris

Simple Vintage Garden District Cards with Rae

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Have you seen our June card kit this month? It features the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Garden District papers.  The vintage feel of this papers paired with he bright colors make this collection so fun to play with.  Check out the kit here:

The rest of the design team has been posting some amazing projects made with this kit, and today I’m going to show you 4 simple cards that I came up with.  First up is my “Dream” card:

I used a faux stitching technique on the pink gingham paper, and on the teal doily.  I cut that using a small doily die.  I cut one of the clothesline stickers to fit the card and added a couple of other small stickers from the kit.  I inked the Scrapaholic chipboard swirls and then ticked them under some flowers- the small pink ones are from my stash. I traced a lot of the elements with a black pen for added interest.

Next up is another “Dream” card:

I started out by cutting one of the frames that had room for two pictures in half.  I added one of the sentiment cut out cards to the frame for the base of my design.  I used the same design features as the other “dream” card using black accents.

“Thinking of You” Card:

This is a card with lots of layers!  I cut some banners for the layers under the sentiment card that I put in another one of the frames that came in the kit and added a sentiment card to.  I cut and distressed some of the crotchet trim, then tucked some pieces in between the layers.  I also added two of the heart stickers to the top and a couple of whitewashed brads from my stash.  I painted the chipboard swirls white, then added some green chalk ink.

“Today is the Day” Card:

This is my favorite of all the cards I made with this kit.  I started out by cutting a couple of layeres for the background and distressed them.  I added some print stenciling  with white chalk paste.  The green circle is a die cut from the green paper in the kit.  I added more of the distressed crotchet trim and added the lovely Darice yellow roses and pink roses from my stash.

And here they all are again:

Vintage Garden District Handmade Cards

Hello crafty friends! I’m excited to share my first project for this month using the June Cards, Tags, & More kit from Tres Jolie! The paper from the kit this month is from Simple Stories Vintage Garden District! The colors on this paper are beautiful and so I decided to create a couple of cards .

 

These cards measure 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 , I used some pink card stock for the base of the cards from the kit. I then cut some of the green paper that has a different pattern from the kit as well to start my layers. I selected the papers from the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District paper pad, on one of the cards I tore the paper and adhered it in two different corners of the base. I then added some white cheese cloth then cutting, distressing the edges with the distress tool then adhering one of the cut outs with the sentiment “Live, Love, Laugh” . I also made a small flower cluster on the bottom of the card using the yellow and white flowers from the kit along with some other small paper flowers in between as well. Of course adding some cheese cloth in between the cluster. Then added some small white pearls to the flowers too! Lastly on this card I added some Liquid pearls to the top right corner.

On the 2nd card I did the same for this base as I used for the 1st one. I did however use the flip side of the green card stock than what I had used for the first one which is a little lighter. I then picked out another paper from the paper pad, distressing the edges with the distress tool and also creating some wrinkles on some areas of the paper. I then cut and adhered one of the cut outs which said ” You are the bestest”. I picked one of the papers from the paper pad which was dark green with a cute butterfly on it, I cut it to make a small banner piece and then adhering some of the white cotton lace and a white flower from one of the other kits.

These cards were very simple to create! I will be creating more once I finish with the other projects . Of course I will be sharing it here with you all! I hope this inspires you to create some any occasion cards for those special moments! This kit is super cute and colorful.  So stay tuned friends for more projects! I’ll be back! Until then you can check out the rest of the design teams great projects!! Also don’t forget to enter the monthly sketch challenge!! See Ya!

Jeanne
