Pizza Party Masculine Birthday Card

Spellbinders Sweet and Savory Warm Wishes Camper Paper Rose Retro Days Masculine Birthday Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Pizza Party Masculine Birthday Card with Spellbinders Warm Wishes Sweet & Savory Dies

Hello Friends!  I’m just popping in very quickly today to share this fun Pizza Party Masculine Birthday Card.  Our eldest son just celebrated his birthday.  He’s a life-long pizza lover, and I would have a hard time counting up the number of times he’s celebrated his birthday with a pizza party.  So when I saw the pizza slice die in Spellbinders Sweet & Savory set, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it!

Cheese or Pepperoni?

This is a pretty basic 5×7 card.  The base is a rust colored cardstock topped with a teal mat. Here’s how I layered it up:

  • First, cut a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ panel of the border print from Paper Rose Retro Days.
  • Next, cut a 4 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ panel of the rust diagonal stripe and adhere it above the striped border.
  • Then cut out and double mat the pizza sign and the movie sign board from the paper collection.
  • Die cut 3 sets of the pizza base crust from the off white paper in the collection.  Ink the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.
  • Repeat with the pizza crust edge piece.  Back these pieces with 1/8″ foam tape.  Dot with Dries Clear Adhesive and “Espresso Yourself” Prills.
  • Next, die cut 3 wedges from the rust stripe paper to be the “sauce” layer on the pizza slices. Place foam tabs on the back of these pieces.
  • Then die cut several “pepperoni” slices from the orange diagonal stripe.  Cut shredded cheese from the lighter orange solids squares in the paper collection.
  • Ink all the edges with Distress Ink and layer it up!

Create the sentiments with the stamps linked in the supply list below.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek at the inside.  Simple and clean, but lots of fun!

The Sweet & Savory dies also have a big soft pretzel, doughnuts, bowl of soup and other fun food items.  They pair up perfectly with the Warm Wishes Camper that I shared earlier.

It’s been a fun month of birthday celebrations, but I am ready for things to settle back down a bit.  I’ll be sharing a mix of fall and Christmas projects with you in this next quarter of the year.  There are some fun projects in store, so stay tuned!

Enjoy your weekend!

Warm Wishes Festive Food Truck

Spellbinders Warm Wishes Festive Food Truck with Photoplay Wonderful Christmas Collection

Hello, Friends!  How would you like to take this Warm Wishes Festive Food Truck on the road this Christmas?  We can sell hot chocolate, gingerbread men, snowman sugar cookies and pinwheel cookies to pay for the fuel as we roll merrily along on our journey!  Sound like fun?  Well, I did have fun making this adorable card with Spellbinders Warm Wishes Camper Life dies and Photo Play Paper’s Wonderful Christmas collection.

Dale and I are always imagining what we could sell if we had a food truck.  Pancakes?  Burgers? Tacos?  But I think this cute cookie-mobile is the best idea yet!  Who doesn’t love hot chocolate and tasty cookies?

Dressing this little camper die up with papers from A Wonderful Christmas was so much fun!  Since I had some leftover bits from the Winter Garden and Parcel and Post projects, I decided to add them into the mix.

A Peek Inside

To keep with the food truck theme, I created a little box pocket filled with tasty treats.

Salted Caramel Macchiato anyone?  That’s what wrapped up inside the largest “gift package.  Then I tucked in some tasty cookies and a peppermint stick, just for fun!  And how cute is this paper collection?   I can’t wait to play with again soon.

A Little Announcement

I have a busy week ahead, so I will not be able to do my usual Make & Take Tuesday or Throwback Thursday posts.

It’s birthday month in our family, and I have another family birthday party to plan and execute this weekend.  This one is for our sweet daughter in law who I love so very much!  We have mutually agreed that we would be friends even if she hadn’t married our eldest son!

On top of that, there’s a baby shower for our youngest son and his wife.  They are expecting their first baby this October, so I am very excited about this event!

If that’s not enough to keep me out of trouble, it’s also time for me to make another Button Farm Club kit.

How I’m going to get all of this done, I really don’t know.  But sleep is overrated, and family comes first.  I hope you’ll be patient with me as I tend to all these necessary (and fun) activities.

Oh, yes!  I’ll be back on Friday of this week with the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Hop.  See?  I told you this was going to be a busy week!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Wishing you all a joyful and creative week!  See you on Friday!

Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial

Spellbinders Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in with a little surprise Spellbinders Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial on this Monday morning.  It’s going out a little later than I had hoped, but better late than never, right?

Spellbinders Winter Wonderland Gift Card Wallet Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

My friends at Spellbinders sent me this lovely collection, and I spent a delightful afternoon creating a pile of festive Christmas cards with it.  As is usually the case, once I got done, I had a wonderful pile of scraps on my desk.  After pondering several good ways to use them, I landed on the idea of making Christmas Gift Card Wallets.  Oh, what fun!  In fact, they were so much fun, I decided I should make a little tutorial for you so you can make them, too.

Each gift card is measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and is made from one 12″ x 3 1/2″ scrap of white cardstock.

Christmas Delivery Gift Card Wallet Spellbinders Winter Wonderland by Kathy Clement Photo 01

It only takes about 15 minutes to make each wallet, so if you have a stack of gift cards to give out this year, this is definitely the easy way to do it!

This is a very fun collection to work with.  The 6×6 pad of papers has 40 sheets and 10 designs, including stunning gold foiled patterns. Instead of focal images in the paper pad, the collection features 2 different ephemera packs.  I’ll show you how to layer the images to create the card focals in the video tutorial below.  Everything about this new collection is fresh and festive.   My only concern was the weight of the paper; it’s very thin.  But since I added layers and used sturdy bases for my cards, everything turned out just fine.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a look at the inside of one gift card holder.  It’s a very simple design, but provides ample room for a little sentiment card as well as a gift card or cash.  You can adapt the design for any occasion.  Since gift cards have become so popular, it’s nice to have a way to dress them up.

Winter Wonderland Christmas Cards

One of the things I really do like about this collection is that you can find at least 3 unique color palettes.  The gift card wallets were made with what I called the pink/tan papers.  These festive cards represent the red/gold color palette.

There’s also a frosty blue/green color palette that I particularly loved. You can see in these photos how that gold foil just POPS!

Winter Wonderland Easel Card

Of course, I had to make an easel card!  This 6×6 card features the beautiful, traditional botanical images from the collection.

The brake or stopper on the card is actually a pocket.  This gives you a place to tuck in a gift card and a little note.

OK, my friends!  Thanks for letting me interrupt your Monday!  I’ll be back tomorrow with our September Gnome of the Month Tutorial.  Have a joyful and creative day!

Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial

Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  For today’s Throwback Thursday, I have a Spellbinders Parcel and Post Christmas Tags Tutorial for you.  Christmas in my house involves the giving of a lot of homemade baked goods, and these adorable tags are the perfect addition to a cookie plate or loaf of quick bread.  They also make great gift tags or place cards.  The best thing about these darling little tags is that they are a great way to use up scraps of paper.

 

The base for each tag is a (retired) Graphic 45 Alpha Tag.  If you have these in your stash, this project is a great way to use them up.  But any regular sized G45 Tag will work just as well.  First, use the G45 Regular Tag Die to cut liners for the front and the back of each tag.

Parcel and Post Christmas Decorations

I’m a big fan of Christmas greenery dies.  The Parcel and Post Christmas Decorations die set is loaded with greenery, holly, foliage, and candy dies.

Before you start making your tags, set up a little assembly line of tags, liners, and die cuts.  This way you can quickly assemble a whole pile of these sweet gift tags. Now arrange these die cuts over your patterned paper.

Next, create a tag sentiment with the Parcel and Post Greetings Clear Stamps.  You’ll not only find Christmas stamps, but sentiments for all occasions.  It’s a great set, and I love the fonts.

Got flowers? Break out the poinsettia die from Celebrate the Season Sled Dies. Then use paper scraps to create a pile of pretty poinsettias for your tags.

Look how cut the candy cane and peppermint candy pieces are.  Like I said, this is such a fun set of dies.

I hope you’ll enjoy this quick and easy project tutorial on YouTube.

Wasn’t that fun? Now go break into your paper stash and make some cute tags today.

Peek A Boo Trellis Christmas Card Tutorial

Graphic 45 Warm Wishes Christmas Card Tutorial with Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Peek a Boo Trellis Die by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01
Amazing Paper Grace Peek A Boo Trellis Christmas Card Tutorial with G45 Warm Wishes

Hello, Friends!  For today’s Make & Take Tuesday I’m sharing a Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Peek A Boo Trellis Christmas Card Tutorial. This lovely botanical die set is a great match for Graphic 45’s Warm Wishes paper collection.  I’m going to show you 2 different ways to use this versatile die.   Don’t forget to visit Becca’s blog for even more Peek A Boo Trellis inspiration. She has some truly gorgeous samples and tutorials waiting for you there.

Merry Christmas Cardinal

Spellbinders Amazing Paper Grace Peek a Boo Trellis Graphic 45 Warm Wishes by Kathy ClementI love it when I can snuggle a focal image in with some pretty foliage.  So for this first card, I made small cuts in the leafy panel, then inserted my focal image into the panel.  That’s pretty much all it took to complete the card front.  The rest was just adding foliage, ribbons and flowers.

I made this one a box pocket card, tucked in some sweet Christmas treats.

Peppermint sticks, Christmas tea, a Christmas Cookie, honey stick and note card turn this into a lovely little gift.

Inlaid Peek a Boo Trellis Vines

The second card is really quick and easy to make!  This time, I cut a 5×7 panel from Warm Wishes Patterns and Solids.  Then I centered the Peek A Boo Trellis vines in the center of the panel and die cut.  Next, I die cut the reverse side of this same patterned paper and adhered it slightly off center behind the inlaid design.  Finally, I stitched the entire panel onto green cardstock.

This time I used the layered rose dies that come with the die set along with a bunch of foliage.  Burlap string, rusty jingle bells and vintage buttons give it a great rustic botanical feel.

The inside is simple with a gift card wallet/pocket combo and more of the pretty designer paper.
