Here’s a Christmas card with the front made solely from Framelit Dies and some Gold Sequin Trim. What do you think?

Now the Ornaments framelits come in a bundle with the coordinating stamp set called Embellished Ornaments. You can purchase them separately for a total of A$100 or bundle and save 15%. Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set and Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies – Wood-mount #140856 for A$85.00 or Clear-mount #140857 A$73.00. So buying them as a bundle is a great saving. These are available from the Holiday Catalogue on 1st September. If you haven’t got your copy yet and you live in Australia, please contact me and I’d be happy to send you one.

You can see from this view how the elements give the card texture and create interest.

I also used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch #139683 A$35.00. This is a versatile punch which cuts 3 different shapes:  2 corners and ribbon slide. I’ve used one of the corner punches on this card.

I also used the Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies #139658 A$45.00 which is a set of 8 dies with the largest image: 11.1 x 7.9 cm. Use  with Big Shot, Standard Cutting Pads and Precision Base Plate.

The new Precision Base Plate #139684 A$41.00. This steel plate delivers improved performance with more detailed dies, giving you extra fine cuts. I used it with this card and was amazed at how easy the cut was and how much more easily the fine pieces fell out of the element cut.

I used the holly stamp from the Embellished Ornaments Stamp Set to embellish the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope.

Most of you who know me, know I love owls so thought I’d have a go at making one of the new Square Pillow Box Framelits into an owl. What do you think?

I did ink around the Rose Red Ovals which form the outer wings, however it hasn’t shown up in the photograph.

It does also have a nose made from the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and Cajun Craze card. The eyes are punched with our Circle Punches and I have drawn the eyes on.

Juts think what you could place inside this little box – a scarf, soaps, candles, sweets etc. – endless possibilities really.

I shared a Minions Square Pillow Box the other day, so decided today to share a Festive one.

To build the Poinsettia I used the new Festive Flower Punch from the Holiday Catalogue due out on 1st September. The punch co-ordinates with the Reason for the Season Stamp Set and I worked out a great way to stamp the images and then punch them out without too much trouble. I’ll share the tip in a video late this month.

You can buy the 2 products in a bundle which saves you 15% – Reason for the Season Photopolymer Stamp Set and Festive Flower Builder Punch #140847 A$57.75 instead of A$68 if you buy separately.

I’ve also used Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper #139588 A$22.75 for 2 each of 5 double-sided designs printed with metallic ink on one side; 1 each of  2 single-sided gold foil designs. 30.5 x 30.5 cm. Acid free, lignin free. Basic Black, gold, Whisper White

So some great new products coming in the Holiday Catalogue and you can start ordering on 1st September.

Here’s a closer look at the Poinsettia:

20150821_153749

I’ve used the Square Pillow Box Framelit again here and made a Belly Band from real Red and built the Poinsettia with Real Red, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight card. I’ve stamped each leaf and petal using Reason For The Season stamp set in Read Red and Garden Green.

Who doesn’t like Minions? They’re so cute. Last school holidays I took my step Grandson to see the Minions Movie. He laughed so much and we both had a great time. My youngest Grandson chose a Minions cover for his mother’s mobile phone. So they’re everywhere.

We have a new framelit in the Holiday Catalogue starting 1st September. Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies #139657 A$54.00 and there are 8 dies. Finished box: 15.1 x 11.7 cm.  Use with Big Shot and Standard Cutting.

20150821_171614

Now I’ve only used the Square Pillow Box Framelit to make this little fellow, plus some punches. There are 7 more framelits in the set which I haven’t used today.

I made a belly band from some Basic Black cut to 3/4″ and then used Circle Punches for the eyes and our White Signo pen.

These pillow boxes will be serious fun and a must to purchase from the catalogue when it starts. Just imagine all the different ones you can create and use them for a myriad of occasions.

At my Krafty Owlz Team meeting our theme was Christmas in Winter. I decided it was a good time to re-visit the Envelope Punch Board. We made Hexagonal shaped Christmas Bob Bons with snaps inside.

I have a video tutorial for you so you can see how to do it and the written instructions are below the video.

How to make a Hexagonal Bon Bon

D.S.P. or Card measures 11” x 6 ½”

Instructions:

  • With the short edge at the top of the Simply Scored, score at every 1” increment – this leave you with a ½” piece for joining
  • Turn and with the long side at the top of your Simply Scored, score at 1 ½”, 2” and 2 ½”;
  • Burnish each score line at the 1” increments
  • Burnish the score lines at the top and bottom of the Bon Bon by doing a Mountain fold (1 ½” score mark), Valley fold (2” score mark) and Mountain fold (2 ½” score mark).
  • On each fold insert into the Envelope Punch Board with the edge of your paper at 2” and punch on every folded edge; turn and repeat at the other end
  • Place some adhesive down the joining tab and join
  • Push the ends in so you get the correct shape
  • Punch out a circle with the 1 ¾” Circle punch and place 1 in each end of the Bon Bon assisting it to hold its shape and keeping anything you place inside it, inside the Bon Bon
  • If placing a snap inside the Bon Bon, punch a 1/4″ hole in one edge so the end of the snap can poke through
  • Tie ribbon around the ‘Valley Folds’ each end
  • Add a tag or sentiment to complete your Bon Bon

Some of these products will be available in the Holiday Catalogue which may be ordered from on September 1st.

I shared a soccer card the other day so thought I’d better do a card for the girls. This card is quite simple and features some embossing in White Embossing powder. I’ve stamped the inside and the envelope, using the same stamp but Melon Mambo ink.

20150818_162048

Same card but made landscape and you can see the stamping both inside the card and on the envelope. I’ve stamped the sentiment first and then punched it out using the Scallop Oval Punch. The Whisper White Organza ribbon just adds some texture and dimension to it.

I seem to make lots of adult cards and not too many cards suitable for boys or teenagers. I saw in another group how someone had made a similar card and you can find many on Pinterest. You could make these for any round ball games really – baseball, basketball; dodgeball; football; teeball etc.

20150818_162159

To make this football (soccer) all you need to do is use your Big Shot and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder and run your card stock through. Then take your Circles Framelits Dies and choose the size you want, and draw  a light pencil line around the outside of the framelit on the right side of the card. Using Basic Black, run it through your Big Shot with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and this will give you the little black hexagons you need for the ball. Don’t throw the frame you have just cut, out as you can use it for some other project. Now adhere some of the black hexagons to the inside of the circle, giving you a soccer ball effect.

20150818_162245

Now, place your piece back into your Big Shot with the Circle Framelit die and run through, thus cutting your ball out.

Use some fringe scissors to cut your grass. I just pulled a couple of ‘blades’ out here and there. Adhere to the card front and then add the ball ensuring some of the blades of grass stick up over the ball.

This is a great card for someone who is keen on their sport.

Many people have trouble tying a great bow. So, I decided today to share with you a quick and easy way to tie a bow which is fool-proof for both tying a bow to add to a card or for tying onto a gift.

Well that’s it for today’s post. I hope you’ve found it useful.
