Christmas Magic Card Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Christmas Magic Card Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you had a chance to play with the gorgeous ribbons in the RRR October Ribbon Club yet?  This Christmas Ribbon Assortment looks like old fashioned Ribbon Candy, and it inspired me to create this Christmas Magic Card Folio.

I don’t know about you, but I am loving this color combo!  The Graphic 45 Christmas Magic collection is the perfect playmate for the 5/8″ Red Taffeta Ribbon that comes in the Ribbon Club.

This 5″ x 7″ top fold card has a 1/4″ spine.  It’s a super quick and easy make, but the colors and images just pop!  Gold metallic string adds just the right touch of holiday sparkle.

Red Taffeta tops the little tags that I tucked into the pocket on the top half of this card.

And I used it again to tie this candy cane and miniature spoon bundle together.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio for the HC Alumni Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations September 2018 Alumni Hop!  The shorter days of autumn are upon us and soon the leaves will begin to fall. This Heartfelt Creations  Rustic Sunflower Card Folio is rich with autumn hues, texture and rustic charm.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Acorns, turning leaves and brilliant sunflowers are  all things that I love.  Creating this 5″ x 7″ x 1/2″ card folio was pure joy!  Here are the Heartfelt Creations supplies that you will need to make this project:

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio: Card Basics

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 02

First create your card base with kraft cardstock.

  • Begin by cutting two 5″ x 11″ panels from kraft card.
  • Then add 1/2″ Scor-Tape or the adhesive of your choice to one of the 5″ ends.
  • Next, peel off the liner tape and carefully overlap the other 5″ end over the tape to create one long 5″ x 21 1/2″ panel.  Burnish well with a bone folder.
  • Now, place the long side of the panel on a scoring tool.  Score at 7″.
  • Then score at 7 1/2″. Fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Next, place the 7 1/2″ score line into the left hand corner of your scoring tool and score at 7″.  Measure off 3″ from that score line and cut away the excess.
  • Now you have a 5″ x 7″ card base with a 1/2″ spine and a built in pocket.  Pretty sweet, right?

Add your patterned papers as seen in the photo.  I stitched the focal image onto a piece of burlap.  Be sure to add foam tape or waste chipboard between your card layers to add lots of dimension.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio: Rustic Sunflowers

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 03

To make these rustic sunflowers, follow these easy steps:

  • First, use ColorBox Dark Brown Chalk Ink to stamp 2 sets of the Classic Sunflowers on the yellow print paper from the Beary Retreat Center.  Heat Emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Next, Die cut the flower layers using the Classic Sunflowers Die.
  • Then, Place the flower layers in the 3-D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  You can do up to 3 layers at a time, but be sure to mist each layer before adding the next.  Run through your die cutting machine to shape.
  • Now, randomly dry brush the petals with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint.
  • When the paint is dry, spray the flower layers with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls and Tattered Angels Bronze Glimmer Mist.  Pinch the ends of the petals to give them a rustic, wrinkled tip. Dry with a heat tool
  • Now use a ball stylus to shape the center of each sunflower to form a cup.
  • Next, layer the flowers together with the adhesive of your choice.  I use hot glue.
  • Finally, fill the centers with hot glue and Czech beads.
  • Stamp, Die Cut, shape and color the leafy accents.  Add everything to your card.
Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Card Folio: The Bow

I added more leafy accents on top of my beautiful blue, cream and gold plaid bow.  Then I hot glued on some acorns that I had in my stash, along with some little acorn and leaf charms.

I love to make cards that double as gifts.  Now you know why I had to add a 1/2″ spine to this card folio!

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 06

Turn the flap and you find a little gift card pocket, a place to write a little note, and room to add a photo.  I cut the opening in the pocket with a circle die.

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflowers Card Folio Beary Fun Retreat by Kathy Clement Photo 07

After covering out pocket with designer paper from the collection, I simply glued the sides to the card base.  This is such an easy way to make a pocket!  Then you get to do the fun part: fill the pocket with treats.  This is a vintage silver spoon, a little tea bag wallet, and a honey stick to complete the ensemble.

Tuck a pumpkin spice tea bag into the pocket, and your gift is ready to give!  I like to wrap these cards up in tissue paper and tie them with ribbon for presentation.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio for All Creatures Great & Small at Frilly Funkie

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a fun, funky mixed media project to share with you.  I created this Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio for the latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  We’ll take a look at it in a moment, but first let’s see what the Magnificent Maggi, our challenge hostess, has to say about the new challenge.

Challenge Theme: All Creatures Great and Small
Animals delight us in so many ways; perhaps a trip to the zoo with the kids has made you smile.  Maybe you have fur-babies that are a big part of your life.  My fur-babies are my children and hold the top spot in the hierarchy of my home!  For this challenge, create a vintage or shabby chic project that is centered around animals.  It could be your pets or a vintage photo.  Could be an animal you fear, spiders anyone???  Eeeek!!!!  No humans please, just animals on your project, otherwise anything goes.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio: The Inspiration

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

I love animals, but severe allergies/asthma prevent me from being in contact with them.  So for this animal themed challenge, I chose my favorite species: birds.  What’s not to love? From their beautiful feathers to their cheering songs to their amazing ability to soar against the sky, birds are marvelous creatures.  The Patchwork collection from Stamperia is filled with whimsical bird images…and tea!  So you know I had to use it for this challenge.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

Stamperia Patchwork fairly begs to be used in mixed media.  What can I say…I answered the call when creating this 5″ x 7″ top fold card folio.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio: A Little Mixed Media Mayhem

First, use a brayer to roll an uneven coat of Antique Linen Distress Paint over the edges of a 5″ x 7 kraft card base.

This is a tip I picked up from the amazing Seth Apter.  Next, use a really cheap paintbrush to dry brush Evergreen Bough Distress Paint over the Antique Linen layer.  The idea is to end up with lots of brush strokes as you can see here.

Sadly, I forgot to take photos of the next steps in the process, as I got all involved in the act of creating.  Mea culpa!

Next, use the wood grain stencil from Tim’s Mini Layering Stencil Set 10 with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to add another layer of texture over the brush strokes.  Then,  randomly spray the edges of the card with Distress Resist Spray.

TIP: As per Tim’s instructions, always place items in a box before you spray with Resist.  The tiny particles go everywhere and stick PERMANENTLY to anything they touch.  I have an old shipping box set aside for use as a spray box.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio: Seth Apter Baked Texture

Now that you’ve sprayed the edges, sprinkle on Chunky Rust Baked Texture and heat emboss.

TIP: Heat emboss from the UNDER side of your project to prevent granules from flying all over the place.  You’re welcome.

You can see the cool effects of the Chunky Rust Baked Texture quite clearly at the top of the card.  I really wanted this card to have a lot of grungy, distressed layers.  Machine stitching, spattering, and painted distressed edges did the trick.

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio: Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

I’m in love with Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture.  Here’s how I altered the bird.

  • Fussy cut the bird from Stamperia Patchwork.
  • Ink the edges with Gathered Twigs.
  • Place the fussy cut image on a non-porous surface like your craft mat. Cover it well with an Emboss Dabber.
  • Place the image in a funnel tray or clean piece of paper. (So you can save the Baked Texture Powder for another use) .  Cover it thoroughly with Vintage Beeswax Baked Texture and heat emboss.
  • Let the image cool, then repeat the above step.  You end up with a beautiful, vintage gloss that looks amazing.  As a bonus, it strengthens the paper, too.
  • Now, while the image is set, but still a little warm, shape it with your fingers to add dimension.  I just sort of bent the edges in toward the middle, and to my delight, the shape held.
  • When it is time to adhere the bird to the card, back it with 2 or 3 layers of foam tape.  Or, be cheap like me and use waste chipboard.
  • Add a thin bead of a strong liquid adhesive to the very edge of the fussy cut image.  (I use Art institute Dries Clear Glue.)
  • Hold the edges of the bird against the paper until the glue takes hold.  I use a fast drying glue, so this really only takes a few second.  The foam tape in the center will give the body a lovely, rounded shape.
Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio: Detail Shots

Add Grit Paste through Tim’s Stitched Stencil.  Then I brush a little Rusty Hinge Distress Stain over it to make it match all the rusty, distressed elements in the card.   After sewing the card, leave the thread long, then tuck it under this rusty index clip.

 

Stamperia Patchwork Life is Good Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 06

These Little Birdie Flowers are from the Pastel Palette.  I dry brushed them with Rusty Hinge Distress Stain and a little Antique Linen Distress Paint to age them.   The sentiment is backed with waste chipboard to add more dimension.  And everything is spattered with walnut ink.

Pockets are great…and just look at these amazing colors!

This little tea bag wallet sits in the side pocket on the top of the card.

The lower pocket is filled with a vintage silver spoon found on one of my junkin’ adventures.  Then I stitched one of the tags onto natural canvas and dressed it up with a little vintage lace and a vintage button.  And where there is tea, there must be a honey stick!

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a quick and easy Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial with Really Reasonable Ribbon to share with you.  The Nightfall Collection and the RRR September Ribbon Club Assortment were made for one another!

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 01

There is so much to love about these Boo-tiful little cards!  First of all, you can make using your scraps, which always makes me happy.  Then, you can make these 4.25″ x 5.5″ paper pretties in a jiffy, because the “recipe” for each card is really similar.  Next, each card has a super easy to make gift card holder inside.  Finally, you have to take a look at the cute factor!  Has Halloween ever been cuter?   Let’s take a closer look at each card, then we’ll dive into the Snapguide tutorial below.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Good Witch or Bad Witch?

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 02

This sweet little witch is too cute to spook, so I’m putting her down in the “good witch” column!  I’ve dressed up this card with Tangerine Swirl Satin Ribbon and Natural Burlap String.  And I love the border of Halloween Confetti Grosgrain Ribbon for the pop of color it adds to the design.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 03

I love to add ribbon to the interior of my cards, too.  Black Spiderweb Satin Ribbon adds a touch of class to the gift card holder inside this cute card.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Which Witch?

While this witch isn’t quite as adorable as our first card model, she’s still pretty fun.  And how bad can she be with that cutie pie owl by her side?  I’ve paired up more Tangerine Satin Swirl Ribbon with 3/8″ Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon on this card for a perfect match!

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 05

You’ll find 3/8″ Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon inside this card as well.  The black cat gives it the seal of approval.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial:  Trick or Treat

This is the cutest image with that little ghoul peeking out of her costume!  To go with the dotty background, I selected Halloween Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon.

And the cute couple inside this card are black tie ready with a bit of Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon.  By the way, while I’m thinking of it, all the small images on the treat bags and in the small frame are from the Nightfall 6×6 Paper Bundle.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Holder Tutorial: Too Cute to Spook

The focal image on this card is actually a sticker that I matted on black cardstock.  It’s just the cutest!  Tangerine Checkerboard Satin Ribbon lends a soft Halloween Glow to this darling card.

Authentique Nightfall Halloween Gift Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Authentique Paper Photo 09

Ribbon is a great way to add a pop of color to the interior of a card, too.  Halloween Confetti Dot Grosgrain Ribbon looks fabulous on the front of this gift card holder.
