Die Cut Poinsettia Christmas Card

Good Wednesday morning.  I have an elegant die cut poinsettia Christmas card to share with you today made using the newly released Spellbinders Cinch and Go Poinsettia and Holly Jolly Frames paired with the Floral Flourishes.  My card size is 5 x 7 due to the size of the gorgeous holly frame and I love that the size creates such a gorgeous background for the poinsettias and flourishes.

Come see how I made this die cut poinsettia Christmas card.

The Frame and Card Base

  • Cut a piece of cardstock 7 inches wide and 10 inches long and score at 5 inches to create the card base.
  • Place the outer frame die, large decorative holly die and smaller decorative frame on the cutting platform.
  • Place a piece of waxed paper or copy paper over dies to protect your white cardstock.
  • Place a 5 x 7 piece of white cardstock over the dies and run through the die cutting machine.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape around the inner frame border and around the outer frame border and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this elegant die cut poinsettia Christmas card.

The Sentiment

  • Cut the sentiment using red cardstock.
  • Attach a strip of 1/8″ double stick tape to a clean desk surface or cutting mat and roll with your fingers to create adhesive for the sentiment.
  • rolled double stick tape 2
  • Apply sections of the rolled up double stick tape to key spots on the back of the sentiment.
  • Attach the sentiment inside the frame opening on the card base.

The Poinsettias

  • Cut a full set of poinsettias in red and two sets of smaller poinsettias in red.
  • Cut the largest die in green and two of the smaller poinsettia dies in green to use as a foliage background for the flowers.
  • Place all poinsettia sections face down on a molding pad and form each petal with the large round stylus.
  • Place all poinsettia sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the centers with the smaller tipped stylus to pull all the petals up.
  • Apply a small amount of glossy accents to the green flower centers and attach the largest red flower, making sure to offset so the green petals show.
  • Continue applying glossy accents to the flower layers and attaching and offsetting each layer to complete the flower.

Come see how I made this lovely die cut poinsettia Christmas card.

Completing the Die Cut Poinsettia Christmas Card

  • Cut two sections of each of the flourishes using green cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flourishes and attach to the corners of the frame, making sure not to cover the sentiment.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettias and attach to the frame base. 
  • Apply small amounts of glossy accents to each poinsettia center and attach a snow pearl in each to finish the card,

Thanks so much for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut poinsettia Christmas card.  I never tire of making poinsettia cards for the holidays and the recipients always love receiving them.  Get out your dies and get busy making cards as Christmas will be here before you know it.

Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop

September-Blog-Hop-Version-2-Blog-1080x1920I have a few projects to share with you today that I made for the Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop.  There are several very talented designers sharing projects today using stamps and dies from the four new collections.  My projects were all made using dies from Becca Feeken’s A Charming Christmas collection. 

My first set of projects were made using the Shapeabilities Charming Round Tag.  The possibilities are endless with all the dies that come in this sweet set.  I especially love making tags with a country Christmas feel so I embellished mine with gingham bows and sprigs of evergreen.

Come check out my set of round tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Mittens Tag

The tag was cut once in white and again in red.  I used one of the decorative insert dies to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the red die and then attached it over the white using double stick tape.  The mittens were attached together with glue dots and then attached to the top of the tag with glossy accents.  I attached a gold ornament topper and evergreen sprigs using glossy accents and then attached a multi loop gingham bow with glue dots to finish.

Come check out my round Mittens tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Deer Tag

The tag was cut once in red and again in white.  used one of the decorative insert dies to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the white tag and then attached it over the red tag using double stick tape.  The deer charm was colored using mini applicators and Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.  It was attached to the tag using pieces of mounting tape.  I attached a gold ornament topper and evergreen sprigs using glossy accents and then attached a multi loop gingham bow with glue dots to finish. 

Come check out my round Deer tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

Joy Tag

The tag was cut once in white and again in red.  I used one of the decorative insert dies and Joy sentiment insert die to cut openings out of the top and bottom portion of the red die and then attached it over the white using double stick tape.  I attached the gold ornament topper to the ornament using glossy accents.  The evergreen sprigs were attached to the center of the tag using glossy accents and then I finished it by attaching the bow using glue dots. 

Come check out my round Joy tag made using the newly releaesed Spellbinders holiday set.

The Angel Ornament Card

The Tallulah frame was cut in white and was attached to the red card base with pieces of mounting tape. I cut the two angel sections using white cardstock.  Both angel pieces have slits that allow them to fit together to create a dimensional ornament.  I secured the front angel wings to the back wings using small piece of mounting tape.  Next,  I applied pieces of mounting tape to the back of the angel ornament and attached it to the card base.  I ran a piece of gold metallic string through the angel topper and then attached it to the frame using glue dots.  I continued the country Christmas theme with the evergreen branches and multi loop bow to finish the angel card.

Come see how I made this elegant yet homey feeling angel ornament card from the new Spellbinders holiday release.

You should have arrived here from Hussena’s blog and your next top along the hop path will be at Lin’s blog post.  I sure hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects for the Spellbinders New Collections Blog Hop and I am sure you will love seeing all the projects along the blog path.  You can see prize information on the Spellbinders blog.  Thanks so much for coming by.

Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month

I have three projects to share with you today made using the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month.  There are so many elements I wasn’t quite sure where to start.  I love so many of them but have to admit I really loved the flower and foliage dies in the set.  You’ll see I used them on all three of my cards.

Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month has so many fun elements.I love the designer paper with the pretty blue flowers and tiny yellow buds.  The blue and green cardstock in the kit matched the pattern perfectly.  The pretty delicate lacy doilies are a soft and feminine addition to the paper and created a perfect background for the floral arrangement. The largest lace doily was attached t the blue strip using double stick tape.  The smaller doily was attached using a piece of mounting tape.  I cut the flowers and formed them using my stylus and molding pad.  I cut several sections of foliage to use as the base for the arrangement. I attached the largest flower to the doily using glossy accents and then tucked the foliage under the flower and attached with glossy accents.  I finished by attaching the smaller flowers to the foliage with glossy accents and applied the tiny yellow pre made Nuvo Crystal drops to the flower centers.

 

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a floral spray card.

The black paper with the red, yellow and pink flowers was so pretty and I thought it would look great with the red cardstock, butterfly and gold flowers and foliage.  This is a little out of my wheelhouse but I love how it turned out.  I cut the designer paper in half and trimmed it with a section of gold cardstock.  I attached both pieces to the red card base using ATG adhesive.  I traced the butterfly on the red cardstock and then cut it out with my snips to use as a base for the butterfly.  I attached the two butterfly sections together using glossy accents. and then attached them to the card base with pieces of mounting tape.  I attached the flower and foliage to the butterfly using glossy accents.  I attached the sentiment with mounting tape and finished by adding a few more pieces of foliage.

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a butterfly card with gold floral embellishments.

I created a smaller 4.25″ square card using the white and gold banner layered on the pink gingham.  I loved the die cut heart and thought it looked so perfect with the addition of the single flower and pieces of foliage.  I cut the banner die in white and gold and attached them together using double stick tape and then attached them to the card base using double tape.  I used the die cut heart as a stencil to trace on a piece of white cardstock, cut it out and attached it to the back of the heart using rolled up pieces of double stick tape.  I attached the heart to the banner using pieces of mounting tape and then embellished with the little white flower and a foliage section.

Come check out how I used the Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month to create a gold heart and floral embellishment.

The Spellbinders June Card Kit of the Month has so many great elements, pretty pieces of designer paper and matching cardstock and ribbon. The Spellbinders kits are a perfect way for a new paper crafter to get started.

Spellbinders Release Blog Hop

Good Wednesday morning.  I’m excited to be participating in the new Spellbinders release blog hop and using wine die cut images from the new Wine Snippet set from the Wine Country Collection. To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to a lucky winner. Please leave a comment on the Spellbinders blog by Sunday, April 22nd 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes. 

You should have arrived here from Janette Kausen’s blog and your next stop along the hop will be Olga Direktorenko.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for gift cards.

I began by applying versa to the Wine Snippets die cuts and embossing embossing with super fine gold embossing powder. I repeated the process a second time to get full coverage on the images. I attached the images to the the Fleur de Lis layers using Crafter’s Pick glue and then attached both layers to the card base using mounting tape.  I used square Matting Basics A and B sets to create the frames and attached them to the images using 1/8″ double stick tape.

Wine die cuts are perfect to make gift cards to accompany a gift of wine.

I think smaller 3 x 3 cards are perfect to use as a gift card when giving someone a bottle of wine.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for cards and gift cards.

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects along the hop .  I’ve linked all the Wine Country wine die cuts and stamps collection below.  You can see all the new release new collections in the “New Arrival” pages.
