Snowman Ornament by Fran

Today I am sharing a Christmas Tree ornament.  You know how you start thinking about Christmas in July to try to get a head start on things.  And I like to make small gifts to hang on the Christmas Tree for my family.
I used a Magnolia snowman stamp from my stash.  I stamped it on an oval shape card stock and colored it with my Inktense Paint pencils and my Dove pen applicator.  The star on top his head was colored in yellow gold and then I applied Glossy Accents for a neat dimension.  Behind the snowman are tiny stickle dots using Star Dust.  I placed three rows of iridescent sequins on the bottom portion of the snowman to give it a snowy look.  Behind the snowman panel is a snowflake embossed oval panel.  And behind the embossed panel (larger of the three) has snowflakes around the border and colored with Broken China Distress Ink (very lightly).  Every other snowflake has a Clear Rhinestone in the center.  (The snowflakes were punched using a Martha Stewart punch).  The hanging hook is made from snowflake printed ribbon.  Attached using Glossy Accents for a strong hold.  Two of the oval layers are popped up using dimensional adhesive.

Happy Birthday Issy! by Kim Bush

My youngest grand daughter, Isabeau will be one on August 3rd.  My, how time does fly!  I made her a cute and quick card using Charlie's Ark toppers by Flower Soft.  Here is the completed card. 

All elements (except the card base) were Flower Soft products.  It was so simple and went together so quickly.  The longest time I spent was waiting for the Flower Soft to dry that I used, on that sweet little lamb.  I used Ultra Fine in kola grey and white.  I also used a matching card with a pic of Jess in the corner, to leave her a special message from Grandma in the interior of the card.  This line is so sweet for children's cards and scrapbook pages.  You can find these super cute Charlie's Ark Toppers and products HERE and all products by Flower Soft HERE

Just Add Water by Deanna M

Here is a quick card I put together the other day. The card was designed around the sentiment. I thought it was such a cute saying so set out to make a card that fit. I found this little turtle in the Silhouette store. He is a print and cut image.  The card base is white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" Portrait style card. The patterned papers were from my stash and went perfectly with the turtle. The turtle is adhered with some foam squares. I added some glossy accents to his sunglasses to make the lenses look more like glass. My sentiment is stamped with some Memento Teal Zeal ink.  I decided to stamp my sentiment at an angle that went with the diagonal stripes on the paper. Just thought it added a fun tough to the card. To finish the card I added 3 buttons down the right side.

Art Deco Tag by Jearise

I love the Art Deco period but have trouble doing crafts that embody that time period of style so I challenged myself with this project.

I stamped the image on white card stock and then went to work adding Tim Holtz Distress Inks and using my alcohol markers. I like the way the frame around the woman pops and there is the vintage look I was going for so I am happy with the way this turned out.

Making of the tag:

1. Stamped image on X press blending card stock
2. Colored various parts of image with alcohol markers
3. Dab on different shaded of Tim Holtz Distress Ink
4. Spritz with water and let the colors blend
5. Add your bling! and adhere to your tag.

Products from Cutters Creek store are listed here:

Tim Holz distress ink pads in various colors

Zig 2 way glue pen

rhinestones (in flowers)

X Press Blending Paper for Copic markers

Enjoy and a question for you... Are you into Art Deco?

Welcome Baby Card by Jearise

There are no up and coming babies that I know of in my family but I thought this Noah's ark stamp I have is so cute that I really needed to finally use it.

I first heat embossed the stamp with WOW embossing powder then I used my alcohol markers to color the stamp. I added some fun details such as clear glitter to the sheep and Noah's beard plus flocking to the waves. I brought everything together by layering my card front and adding a little yellow and white twine bow.

Items from Cutter's Creek Store

WOW embossing powder

Doodle Twine assortment pack - Boy

2 way Zig glue pen

Hope your day is filled with rainbows and sunshine. Jearise :)

Just A Note To Say….by Fran


I tried a new technique (for me) on my card.  I’ve been wanting to use embossing paste for a while now and thought this was as good as time as any.  I used a stencil called Garden Whimsy Branch by Memory Box.  And the embossing paste is by Studio 490. 



Details:  All papers used are from my stash.  I used water color paper for my embossed background.  Once the embossing paste dried I colored the leaves using Distress Ink Pad in Mowed Lawn (my favorite green color).  In between the card base and the embossing layer is a layer of green card stock that matched the mowed lawn.  I wrapped a vellum band around the card and placed a label created on my Silhouette using the Print and Cut feature.  Inside I stenciled a smaller branch in mowed lawn and used the silhouette to cut out the sentiment “Hello”.

I thought it would be hard using embossing paste but it only took me two tries to get the look I wanted.  I plan to use this technique more often.

Pull out your stencils and embossing paste and have some fun with it.  So what if you don’t get it the first time.  You know it takes practice to do a new technique.  Once you get the look you are after then the rest is easy.  And I would love if you share your embossing paste technique with the Cutters Creek Online Group.


Items used to create my card:


Summer Seasonal Distress Ink Pads

Card Stock

Dimensional Adhesive

Making Waves by Deanna M

Today I have a fun summer card for you! The image is an SVG file that I cut with my Silhouette. I cut him about 5" wide. My card base is white card stock folded to make a 5" X 6" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4 3/4" X 5 3/4".  My patterned paper is from my stash. The blue is cut at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2". The reverse side of the blue wave paper is the brown patterned paper. I took a strip of the brown pattern paper and tore it and then cut it to 4 3/4". I then inked the paper with some Tea Dye Distress Ink.

For his glass, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to it. I then added some Stampendous Mica Pearlized fragments so his drink had some ice cubes in it. I also sprinkled some Distress Glitter in Rock Candy on the wet Glossy Accents. Once it dried I added a second coat to add some additional dimension to the glass. To add the look of sea spray I added some of the Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder in Shabby Blue.

I stamped my sentiment in some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish my card I added some rhinestones and a small shell from my stash.

To attach my surfer penguin I used an Action Wobble so he could "surf".

Thanks for visiting us today. I would love it if you could leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Thank you card by Michele

Here is something I did as a Thank you card. I started with a A2 card( 4 .25x 5 .5), I used ribbon I had in my stash, it is red with white poka dot the total length for the bow and strip is 10 inches( 5.5, 4.5 for bow), and a small pearl in the middle of the bow, I used a 1"inch punch to make the 4 circles and then I stamped with a small heart in different colors, and used a 3d pop dot behind each circle, I did the same for the Thank you. The stamp pad had a variety. I embossed half of the card with embossing folders from  Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders - Dots and Flowers Set.
 I hope you like this simple and clean card. Please stop by the store to find the products I used and what new items Kim has.
