Beachy Thank You Shaker Card

Authentique Sea Maiden Beachy Thank You Shaker Card

Hello, Friends!  If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you  know how very much I love the beach.  Two days after Valentine’s Day, Dale and I ran away to the shore to celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary.  One of Dale’s customers owns a lovely oceanfront condo in Myrtle Beach and gave us great off season rates for a weekend rental.  Can you say heaven on earth?  To thank them for their kindness, I created this Authentique Sea Maiden Beachy Thank You Card.  The color palette of this paper collection matches their decor so perfectly that I (almost) could not wait to get home and make it for them.

My favorite fancy fold card design has to be the easel card.  The fact that they stand upright allows them to double as home decor.  .

TIP: Score a 1/2″ spine when creating the card base to allow the card cover to fold neatly over the floral elements.

Once again, I’ve used a Tim Holtz Vignette Frame as the box for my shaker element. (Learn how to create this shaker frame element HERE.)

TIP: Mat the 3″ wide “stopper” for the easel with waste chipboard.  This will elevate it just enough to act as a brake when the easel card is opened for display.   You can also mat the Sea Maiden oval Cardstock Component sentiment on waste chipboard to further elevate the stopper.

It’s a snap to create this realistic looking seahorse and starfish.  Here’s how:

  • First, die cut a chipboard seahorse and starfish using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Sand & Sea Die.
  • Next, die cut a second seahorse from the pretty blue mosaic tile paper.  Adhere to the chipboard seahorse.
  • Now, Ink the edges with brown Distress Ink.
  • Then cover the entire shape with an even layer of Versamark Embossing Ink.
  • Now place the chipboard in a funnel tray or over a clean piece of printer paper.  Sprinkle on a generous coating of Emerald Creek Fractured Ice Allure Powder.  Remove from the funnel tray, gently tap off the excess and heat emboss. When finished, pour the extra powder back into the jar.

TIP: Prevent burned fingertips by holding the chipboard between tweezers.

  • Let the seahorse cool while you work on the starfish.  Begin by sponging Ground Espresso Distress Ink all over the surface of the chipboard starfish.
  • Next, cover it with Versamark Embossing ink and heat emboss with Fractured Ice, as you did the seahorse.  The brown ink will come through the embossed layer, which looks really cool.  Set this aside and go back to the seahorse.
  • Randomly tap the cooled seahorse with Versamark.  Sprinkle on Seth Apter Dirty Sand Baked Texture.  If you get too much, brush some away with your finger.  Heat emboss as before.  Do a happy dance at the wonderful texture you’ve just created!
  • Repeat this step with the starfish, but add more Baked Sand for realistic texture.

I’ll add a linked supply list below for your convenience.

Authentique Solitude Winter Survival Kit Tutorial

Authentique Solitude Winter Survival Kit Tutorial and Video Tour

Hello, Friends!  Winter can be such a tough time of year.  So I thought I’d brighten up your day with this Authentique Solitude Winter Survival Kit Tutorial.  It’s the perfect way to chase away the winter blues, send a bit of love to a friend who’s down with the flu, or just to let a loved one know they are in your thoughts.

Authentique Solitude Winter Survival Kit Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01https://wp.me/p34lmI-4pd

This fancy fold card design is adapted from a tutorial I saw on Ginny’s YouTube channel.  I fell in love with the basic design, but thought of some fun ways to change it up and add my own KBD style to it.  (You can find another example of this card design HERE.)

Please don’t let this card design intimidate you, as it is really very simple to make.  This time, I created a 6″ x 6″ card base with a 1″ side fold spine.  Then I added a 5″ x 5″ card base with a 1″ spine on the right.  This forms the fun gatefold/flap feature on the front of the card.  So if you can make a basic side fold card base, you are already more than half way there!

Winter Survival Kit Tutorial: Some Details

  • Add extra volume and texture to your card design by hot gluing some cheesecloth behind a die cut panel.  The lacy appearance of this Spellbinder’s Floral Assortment Nestabilities Die added a snowy feel to the card design.
  • To strengthen the delicate edges of this die, emboss with clear embossing powder.  It’s amazing how much stronger the delicate points are after this treatment.
  • Add some fun dimension by curling the “winter greetings” sentiment against the edge of a ruler.  Then adhere just the ends with hot glue.

  • Add snowy accents to your card by spattering it with diluted white acrylic paint.
Winter Survival Kit Tutorial: A Peek Inside

I absolutely love the drama of unfolding this style of fancy fold card!

Decorate the side panels with elements from the paper collection.  I carried the winter bird theme inside the card by wrapping the cardstock elements image with burlap string and a rusty snowflake.

When the card is fully opened, the Winter Survival Kit is revealed.  This is a 4″ x 2″ box style pocket filled with goodies to make winter more bearable.

Tuck in a teabag, some pocket sized tissues, a chapstick, some hand cream and a honey stick.  That’s sure to brighten up someones day!

I wrapped the back side of the card and the spine with 1 1/2″ wide Ivory Silky Crush Ribbon to add texture, shine and elegance to the design.

Winter Survival Kit Tutorial and Video Tour on YouTube

To help you get a better feel for this fun project, I’ve prepared a short YouTube video tour.  This is followed by a picture and text tutorial where you will learn how to build the base and the box style pocket.  I hope you enjoy!

If I’ve managed to brighten your day, share a helpful tip or inspire you to get crafty, then I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Boy oh boy….is December a busy month or what?  In addition to Christmas, I have 2 family birthdays and a dance recital for the Littles on the list.  I made this Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial with our younger daughter in mind.  (Her birthday was on Tuesday.)

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

This daughter is a minimalist.  So every year I try to make a clean and simple card for her.  It’s usually the hardest card I make all year!  But she loves dragonflies, so I thought perhaps this simple card made with Stamperia Wonderland would fit the bill.

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 02

This is a 5″ x 5 1/2″ card base with a twist and pop mechanism on the inside.  I did dress the card up with a little silver metallic string and a dragonfly charm.  The minimalist flower cluster is made with Tim Holt’s Skeleton Leaves Thinlits, silver metallic string and a Little Birdie Moonlight Renae flower.

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 03

Although it’s difficult to see in the photo, I treated the dragonfly wings with Seth Apter Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture.  I also sprinkled in a few grains of Ancient Amber to add that wonderful iridescent quality that real dragonfly wings have.  It’s very pretty in real life.

The inside of this card has a really fun twist and pop mechanism.  (Tutorial below)  I die cut Tammy Tutterow mini envelopes from cream paper, then decorated them with scraps from the wonderland collection.  We’ll put a little gift card or cash gift in each envelope to make the card even more fun.

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 05

I stamped some sentiments and added them to the card base and the envelopes.  But really, this is a super simple card.

Here’s a side view of the mechanism that you can refer to when you make your own version.

Stamperia Wonderland Twist and Pop Card Tutorial 2.0 on You Tube

I did a tutorial for this twist and pop card on the blog quite a while ago.  You can find that original tutorial HERE.   I did some paper engineering to change up the original twist and pop mechanism design, and it works great.  But some of my followers were still struggling with making the mechanism.  So I went back to the drawing board and simplified it even more.  You’ll find those changes in this very short YouTube video tutorial.

I hope this helps you to master this fun interactive card design.  If you view the video, please take a moment and leave me a comment on my Youtube channel.  And if you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet, I’d love to have you join me on your crafting journey.

 You Better Not Pout Easel Step Card Tutorial with Authentique Jingle

Authentique Jingle Easel Step Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Cards that can double as gifts are awesome.  But cards that can be a card, a gift, and home decor…well those are fabulous, right?  This fun Easel Step Card design falls into that category.  I’ve seen these all over the internet lately.  This design is slightly modified so that I could make one of my standard 7″ x 5″ cards.  I have wonderful 12″ x 17″ kraft cardstock from Envelopes.com in my stash so there was no need to join papers together.  (Please note: you can find all the product links in the supply list at the end of this post.)   If you don’t happen to have this oversized cardstock in your stash, you can just join two 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of kraft cardstock with 1/2″ Scor-Tape, then cut, score and fold.

Authentique Jingle “You Better Not Pout Easel Step Card Measurements and Tips

Authentique Jingle Easel Step Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 02

Here’s a side view of this fun to make card.  It comes together so quickly that you will want to make loads of them!

TIP:  Keep the embellishments on this card on the simple side.  You want it to be able to fold.

Measurements and Scoring Guide for Authentique Jingle “You Better Not Pout: Easel Step Card

Ink cut edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  I also stitched around the perimeter of the two largest front panels

  • Start with a 11″ x 17″ piece of kraft cardstock from Envelopes.com
  • Trim to measure 7″ x 17″.
  • Now, on the long side, score at 1 1/4″ , 2 1/2″, 4 5/8″ 7″ and 12″
  • Starting with the 1 1/4″ score line, accordion fold as seen in the photo. (Mountain, Valley, Mountain, Valley, Mountain)
  • Next, burnish all scored/folded lines thoroughly with a bone folder.
  • Now cut 3 panels of designer paper that measure 6 7/8″ x 4 7/8″.  If you wish to have a wider border around the card, use  6 3/4″ x 4 3/5″  panels.  One is for the card front, the other two for the card interior. (Jingle 1, Jingle 2, Jingle 5,  Jingle 7)
  • Then, cut two 6 7/8″ x 2″ panels of complementary designer paper.
  • Finally, cut two 6 7/8″ x 1 1/8 panels of complementary designer paper.

  • Now adhere the inner and outer layers to the card base.
  • Trim the card focal from Jingle Eight. back with thin foam tabs.  Center and adhere.
  • Now punch out the “You Better Not Pout” oval, the “Ho, Ho, Ho” border and the “Santa’s Almost Here” border from the 12″ x 12 Component Sheet.
  • Sand the edges to give them a snowy appearance.
  • Back with foam tabs and adhere.
  • Embellish as desired.

TIP: For easy mailing, leave off the bow, jingle bells and flowers.

Inside, I created a pocket from the “Dear Santa” component.  Then I die cut one of Eileen Hull’s Credit Card Sleeves and Tag Dies to serve as a gift card holder.  The cute little tag on the bottom is also cut with this die.

TIP:  Mat the credit card sleeve die cut on kraft paper for extra stability.  Be careful to add just a very thin bead of adhesive, or you won’t be able to fit the gift card in the sleeve.

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Now, you all know how much I love to use up my scraps.  After cutting the base for the Easel Step card, I had a lovely piece of 3 3/4″ x 17″ kraft card left over.  Why not use it to make a mini waterfall folio?  So I did.  Here’s how to create this super simple base:

  • First, score a 3 3/4″ x 17″ of kraft cardstock at 2 1/4″ , 2 1/2″, 9″ and 9 1/4″
  • Then, fold and burnish to create a vertical wallet with two 1/4″ spines and a tab closure.
  • Next, trim the short panel to measure 3 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.
  • Now, cut 2 peppermint stripe panels to measure 3 3/4″ x 2 1/4″.  These will line the tab closure.
  • Next, cut 4 Jingle panels to measure 3 3/4″ x 6 1/2″.  These will line the front and back covers, and the interior.  I used Jingle One, Jingle Six, Jingle Two and Jingle Six.
Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio: Cover Details

The focal image on the cover is made with one of the component sheet punch out images.

  • First, paint a Tim Holtz Baroque Frame with Iced Spruce and Picket Fence Distress Paints.
  • Next,  heat emboss the frame with Wow Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder.
  • Now, place the cooled frame over the component image and very lightly trace around the inside oval.
  • Cut out the image about 1/8″ wider than your traced lines.  Erase the lines.
  • Next, mat this image inside the Tim Holtz Foundry Frame.
  • Then, die cut a doily with a Spellbinder Oval Majesty Die.   Adhere the frame to the doily.
  • Now, sprinkle some Mini Pearls Prills to resemble snowballs.
  • Adhere a double layer bow tied with RRR Shell Grey Shimmer Satin Ribbon and Snowflakes on Red Satin Ribbon.
  • Finally, add Little Birdie Renae Classic Flowers.  Tap the leaves with Picket Fence Paint to resemble snow.

Here’s a peek at the top tab.

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 04

The inside of this mini waterfall folio is very, very simple.  You can’t add a ton of embellishments or layers because the cover won’t close.  To stretch my designer paper, I used Authentique Spectrum Cardstock (Robin’s Egg Two, Red Licorice One) to create flaps, pockets and the waterfall.

Create a little flap/pocket on the top.

Use your scraps to create a little gift card wallet.

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 07

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 08

  • Cut the Spectrum Cardstock to measure 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″.   I used a Corner Chomper Stub Punch to shape the corners.
  • Then score a 1/2″ flap on the top of each panel and adhere them to the base.
  • Cut an 8 1/2″ x 1″ strip of Jingle Six to serve as a belly band.  To do this, I wrapped the belly band around the waterfall and folded.
  • Then I adhered the belly band to the base of the folio.
  • Add magnets as a closure.

Authentique Jingle Mini Waterfall Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 09

Here you can see how I attached the belly band.  I also used scraps to create a little pocket filled with teeny tiny tags and an itty bitty folio.

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial

Authentique Jingle is such an inspiring collection to work with.  I just kept getting one idea right after another.  Since so many of us give gift cards at Christmas, I knew I wanted to create some sort of super cute gift card holder.  Then I thought about handmade ornaments for the tree.  And what about gift tags?  So I kind of threw all these ideas into the hat and came up with these festive Gift Card Ornament Tags.  So, so fun (and easy) to make!

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 02

Since I created a video tutorial for these tags, I won’t go into a lot of detail here. I’ll just show you the cute pictures with a quick comment.  Each tag has a ribbon/button hanger on the top.  I could see these hung on a tree, or strung on a banner or stocking hangers.  That way , they are also home decor.

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 03

The reverse side of each tag has a cute little gift card holder.  These are made with Eileen Hull’s Credit Card Sleeves and Tags Dies from Sizzix.

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 04

I die cut numbers from a retired My Favorite Things die set.

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 05

This tag has a cute magnetic folio attached to the back.

Authentique Jingle Gift Card Ornament Tags Video Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photo 06

There’s the gift card holder and room to write a note and/or add a photo.

This is the tag we will make together in the video tutorial.  I’ve used the G45 Square Tag and Clock Dies on all these tags.

The back side has another cute magnetic folio.

The Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever

The Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever with Authentique Alpine and Tammy Tutterow Designs

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to Creative Crew Friday with Tammy Tutterow Designs.  I am so excited about today’s project, as it involves a fabulous pop up card design.  I have a YouTube video to share the Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever!

Twist and Pop cards burst on the scene a little over a year ago and I was instantly captivated by them.  The big problem with this amazing fancy fold card was that you practically needed an engineering degree to put one together.  The pop up mechanism was complicated and bulky and it was really easy to get discouraged during the creative process.

But I love a good interactive card, so I set my mind on coming up with a design that was less bulky, easier to create and would accommodate a larger card base. First,  I spent a whole day watching dozens of twist and pop card videos and reading blog posts. While I gleaned some good tidbits from each video/tutorial I viewed none of them completely met my expectations.

Then I spent an entire day “fussing with paper” until I felt I had a design that was sleek and easy to create.  In fact, it was so much fun that I ended up making TWO cards for you today instead of just one.  So let’s get this show on the road and dig in to this Easiest Twist and Pop Card Tutorial Ever.

 

Cold  Hands Warm Heart Twist and Pop Card Tutorial

Cold Hands Warm Heart Twist and Pop Up Card Tutorial Cold Hands by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 1

This first card is made with Tammy Tutterow’s amazing Cold Hands, Warm Hearts Cling Stamp.  The card base measures a generous 5″ x 6″.  This is considerably larger than the 4.25″ x 5.5″ card tutorials that I found online.  Goal number one?  Make a larger card.  Check!

Cold Hands Warm Heart Twist and Pop Up Card Tutorial Cold Hands by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 2

First, I stamped the image onto patterned paper from Authentique’s Alpine Collection Kit.  Then I colored it in with a combination of colored pencils and alcohol markers.  Next, the stamped panel was stitched onto a navy cardstock mat. Now I created my card base from the same navy cardstock and added a stitched panel of designer paper from Alpine.  Then I die cut felt flowers using Bitty Posie and Posie Parts to add to the card along with some ribbon and a cute novelty button.   I die cut a couple of banner flags using Tammy’s Frayed Banners and topped them with vintage red buttons from my stash.  Card front is done!  Easy peasy!

There’s nothing more fun than opening up a twist and pop card….unless you are watching someone open one for the first time!

This cheery array of Tammy’s Mini Envelopes and Pockets decorates the pop up mechanism.

Each mini envelope has been decorated with stickers or images from the Alpine Collection Kit.  The envelopes are held in place with small magnets.  Cute images from the 6×6 bundle are tucked inside.  Find all the details in the YouTube tutorial below.

Like the Cold Hands card, it has a fun twist and pop design.
