Heartfelt Creations August 2019 Alumni Hop: Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations August 2019 Alumni Blog Hop!  I’m kicking things off today with a bright and cheery Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial.  This was my first attempt at making a triple easel card, and after some trial and error, I finally figured out how to do it!  So I made a tutorial for all of you to save you some time, energy and paper.  Let’s take a closer look at the details on this happy card.

Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial: The Inspiration

Fall is peeping around the corner here in North Carolina.  The temperature might not show it, but the squirrels have been scurrying around stashing away acorns for winter.  Watching their antics inspired me to make this 6″ x 6″ card using the darling Oakberry Lane Collection.

 

Easel cards are one of my “go to” fancy fold designs.  I love how quick they are to make, and how easy they are to display.   You can watch the video below to learn how to create the base.

Oakberry Lane Triple Easel Card Tutorial: The Details

Here are some tips and tricks for adding the details to this fun card.

  • First, stamp the Acorn House on Smooth White Cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink.
  • Next, color it in with Distress Markers and a water brush.  Simple scribble the marker on a craft mat or a bit of clear acrylic packaging.  Then pick up the color with a water brush and blend it onto the stamped image.
  • Now, die cut the house, the windows and the squirrel Mom with the matching die.  Pop up on adhesive strips and attach to the base.

  • Next, stamp 3 sets of Oakberry Lane Flowers using Butterscotch Archival Ink. Heat Emboss flowers and leaves with Clear Embossing Powder.
  • Then,   water color with Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Markers and a a water brush.  Color the leaves with Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron.
  • Die cut the leaves, then shape in the 3D Blossom Shaping Mold, following the directions for your machine.
  • Now add stamens to the centers and layer together.
  • Tie bows for each corner with Orange/Fuchsia/Lavender Checkered Ribbon.  Top with burlap string.

Use the dies to cut out images from the paper collection and scatter them around on the card to create a scene.  (Did you see that rascally little squirrel trying to snatch away Mother Squirrel’s freshly baked pie?)

Merry and Bright Christmas Tag and Pocket Card Tutorial

Canvas Corp Brands/ Petaloo Blog Hop

Hello Friends!  I’m so glad you stopped by today, because not only do I have some sweet projects and tutorials to share with you, but there’s a fun Canvas Corp Brands/Petaloo Blog Hop where you can get yourself all inspired for the holidays AND win a fabby prize package of goodies from the sponsoring companies.  Woo-hoo!

Canvas Corp Brands will be hopping along with Petaloo all this week in the Creative Studio Blog. Be sure to pop on over and take in all the wonderful Christmas projects the design team has prepared for you.  All week long you’ll find step out tutorials and fabulous holiday inspiration. You’ll find all the info for winning the awesome Canvas Corp Brands/Petaloo International prize package there, too!  For a second chance to win, visit the Petaloo Blog each day this week and you could win one of THREE fabulous prize packages.

Have you seen the Farmhouse Christmas and Holiday Baking collections from Canvas Corp? Oh, how I love these “vintage fresh” papers and pretties!  I combined them with Petaloo Paintable flowers  and Tattered Angels Mists to create some very merry Christmas projects.

Kathy by Design Mixed Media Christmas Card

Oooh, just look at all the texture in this 5″ x 7″ pocket card!  Using red burlap, red canvas ticking, Lobster Glimmer Mist, Farmhouse Christmas Tags with those scrumptious Paintable Burlap Flowers gives this card a rustic, festive feeling.

Petaloo Blog Hop Card 02I painted my burlap flowers with the mist, then added a light coating of Ranger Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle so that I could shake on some Stampendous Shaved Ice glitter.  I love the way they look as thought they’ve been dusted with snow.  I tapped my Farmhouse Christmas Label with a little Lobster Mist as well, because, well, why not?

Petaloo Blog Hop Card 03The inside of the card reveals a fun little pocket, stuffed with an individual serving of cocoa mix. This is such a fun “little gift” for holiday exchanges, and there’s plenty of room to tuck in an individually wrapped cookie, chocolate or gift card, too.

Petaloo Blog Hop Card 04You can find out how to make this card in the tutorial that’s below my signature area.

I know everyone’s always looking for simple ideas for holiday hostesses, ornament exchanges, or Secret Santa gifts at this time of year.  One way to dress up a really simple Christmas gift is with a handmade tag.

Petaloo Blog Hop Wall Hanging 01This fabric tag uses red ticking fabric, red burlap, a Petaloo Burlap Blossom, Butterflies and Blossoms and DIY Burlap Flowers.  I created the large blossom as before, but the little cream flower was just dipped into the Lobster Glimmer mist on the edges, and I opted to leave the little burlap flowers plain for contrast.  The burlap poinsettia in the top corner was lightly misted with Lobster Mist for a completely different look.

Petaloo Blog Hop Wall Hanging 02I added some vintage buttons, Shaved Ice, another tag from Farmhouse Christmas and a glittery red ornament to this fun tag.

I hope you found some holiday inspiration and cheer in these two projects.  I’m so glad you hopped by!  Look for the tutorials below.

Cheerio,
