Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Simple Stories-Winter Woods-Tea Party in a Box-Reneabouquets-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 02

One of the things I love about snowman images is that they are good all winter long!  This pretty in pink Victorian card would be a great winter birthday card, Valentine, or get well greeting.  I built the background of my card with paper scraps.  Then I dug into my embellishments and went to work on building the central image.  Here’s how:

  • First, heat emboss the Reneabouquet Victorian Snowflake Medallion with Stampendous Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. Place foam tabs in the center of the medallion and adhere it to the card base.
  • Next,  brush Dies Clear Adhesive over the small snowflakes.  Then sprinkle them with fine pearl glitter glass.
  • Now, place dimensionals on the back of Victoria’s Snowman printed beautiful board and adhere on the right hand side of the medallion.
  • Next, arrange flowers (linked below) around the sides of the medallion as seen in the photo.
  • Tie a double loop bow with Pink Taffeta ribbon and tuck the knot under one of the pink roses. Then tie a double loop bow with Pink and Brown Twist Bakers Twine and adhere it over the pink taffeta bow.
  • Thread a heart charm on Pink and Brown Twist, tie a knot and use the point of your scissors to push into the knot of the Bakers Twine bow.
  • Place dimensionals on the back of  the vintage rose corner pieces and adhere.
  • Finally, tuck snowflakes in and around the flowers and images.  Top with Sweet Shop pearls.

A Peek Inside

Add an extra element of surprise to your project when you create a kinetic waterfall feature on the top half of the card.  Wrap ribbon around the back of the mechanism to hold everything neatly in place.

Then build a box pocket to hold all the goodies for a Victorian Snowman Tea Party. Wrap your goodies with leftover bits of designer paper.  Create a tag,  top it with more Pink Taffeta,  a White Satin Bow and a sweet rose charm.  Stitch paper scraps together to make a handy  little bookmark, and top this with white satin ribbon as well.

I hope I’ve shared some tips, tricks and ideas that you’ll be able to use in your own crafty adventures.  You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Stay warm and cozy!

A Peek Inside

Create a Ribbon Rosette Lollipop to tuck inside the envelope.  Top it with a Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Bow and a glittery gold Valentine heart.  I used a chopstick for the lollipop stem, wrapping it with Scor-Tape and more of the Red Plaid Satin Ribbon.

You just have to add a little love note to a Valentine, so I created this cute heart hot air balloon note card.

Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman

Simple Stories Winter Woods Wall Hanging Reneabouquets Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman Home Décor & Another Giveaway

Hello, Friends!  This Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman wall hanging makes me happy on so many levels.  First, it’s a snowman.  Can you really feel grumpy or out of sorts when you see a snowman?  I can’t!  Then, there’s the tutu trim.  I mean, people, it’s just too too much fun!  Throw in some beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon, gorgeous papers, stunning chipboard and a chippy white vintage hanger and I’m just happy all over.  How about you?

A Little Confession…..

Simple Stories-Winter Woods-Reneabouquets-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

I do have a little confession to make here.  When I was filming the video tutorial for my Winter Woods Mini Album Kit, I had a major technical malfunction.  I thought my phone was recording.  But my memory card was full…so while I cheerfully crafted and taught…nothing was being recorded.  Uh-oh.

And the nature of paper is that once you have used it…it can’t be used again.  Double uh-oh.

Thankfully, I had been given a gift certificate to Scrapbook.com for Christmas.  And because I loved this Winter Woods collection so much, I had purchased a few sheets for myself.  Also, the delivery came a week earlier than I had expected it.  So I had the papers in house to re-film the portion of the tutorial that didn’t record the first time.  Phew!

But then I was left with a duplicate page.  And that,  my friends, is how this sweet little wall hanging was born. I pulled things off, and glued more things on.  Then I stitched the revamped design onto a burlap panel and added a hanger.  How’s that for innovative thinking?

The Shaker Element

The main change was adding some gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon and this Reneabouquets Snowflake Shaker Box, flowers, tutu trim and printed beautiful board.

TIP: Create a frosted window in your shaker box with Dries Clear Adhesive and Glitter Glass.  It’s a little hard to see in the photo, but in real life, it shimmers just like snow!

TIP:  Nile Blue Crosshatch Satin Ribbon is a great color match for this paper collection.  I stitched it on at the top as a border, and I also layered it over White Satin Ribbon to form a fabric belly band.

I thought you might enjoy hearing how I got myself out of a paper fix.  Hope you enjoyed it!

Winter Ice Skates Mixed Media Wall Hanging

Stamperia-Sweet Winter-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Reneabouquets-Spellbinders Floral Swag-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Winter Home Décor

Winter Ice Skates Mixed Media Wall Hanging with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This Winter Ice Skates Mixed Media Wall Hanging is the companion piece to the Stamperia Sweet Winter wall hanging I shared with you earlier this month.  Both feature the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Ribbon Club Assortment,  were made at the same time and followed the same basic procedure.  What can I say?  I had so much fun making the first one, and my work space was already a mess, so I decided to make another.  When the mojo is flowing, you don’t argue.  You just flow with it!

You can check out all the how to’s and tips for making the mixed media background in my previous post.

A stitched ribbon frame really helps pull this composition together.  That pop of color helps to keep the eye focused inside the frame.  If you don’t like to stitch, you could always use Scor-Tape to hold your ribbon frame in place.

And speaking of pops of color, how about this Tropic Delicate Stitched Satin Bow?  Ooh-la-la!  It really brightens up this shabby chic piece, dontcha think?  Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon is one of my all time favorites.  It is soft and supple so it ties gorgeous bows.  If you are struggling with bow-tying, I highly recommend it!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’m still trying to get back on track after the Christmas festivities!  I hope each one of you had a delightful holiday with family and friends.  It’s so much fun to party, isn’t it?  But then we have to catch up on all the work we didn’t get done.  That’s not as much fun!

Winter Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box

Ciao Bella-Time for Home-Tea Party in a Box-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

Winter Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  One of my favorite things about this season is my Winter Feathered Friends who visit my back yard bird feeder.  We have a family of cardinals and a lovely bunch of blue jays who brighten the winter landscape all season long.  This Winter Feathered Friends Tea Party in a Box is inspired by them.

Bluejays and Blue Dark

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Ciao Bella-Time for Home-Reneabouquets-Tea Party in a Box-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

It’s no secret that I am a fan of winter blues.  These icy shades remind me of my Vermont childhood.  If you’ve never experienced a Vermont winter twilight, then you may not be familiar with the particular shade of blue that tints the evening hours.  We called it “blue dark” and it was absolutely breathtaking.  I don’t miss the ice and cold of those winters, but I am glad that I was able to experience those beautiful moments growing up. I’ve tried to re-create that particular event in this creation.

French Blue Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon was the perfect pairing for this project. I topped my triple bow cluster off with some Silver Metallic String to amp up the sparkly, winter feel of this card.

TIP: String tinsel twine through the openings in some vintage lace  to add extra winter sparkle to your card design.  Top it off with pearls and vintage buttons.

A Peek Inside

The blues carry the day inside the card as well.  It’s always fun to tuck sweet surprises into a card design.  Take a closer look:

This flap page opens to reveal a mini waterfall folio and a wooden snowflake ornament.  The neat thing about snowflakes is, they are a great design feature all winter long!

You could easily put this piece out as winter home décor.  Then add in photos of your winter wonderland to make it really special.

Tea Party in a Box

When it’s chilly outside, it’s time to put the kettle on!  So I’ve tucked a special little Tea Party for One inside this box pocket.

What a great way to brighten up a grey, wintry day!

We don’t get “real” winter here in North Carolina, but we usually get at least one little snow event each winter.  I don’t love it the way I did when I was a kid, but its beauty still makes me smile.

I hope you are staying warm, cozy and creative during these winter months!
