In the Woods Golf Club Christmas Card

I realize Christmas is over, but it’s never too soon to plan for the next one. And what would be more perfect for a golfer than ornaments made from golf balls? Today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made using the Golf Club Dies, Winter Woods stamp set, and In the Woods Dies. Of course, in the woods is where you want your golf ball never to go. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun.) 

 

Here’s what I made:

Wrapped in Plaid Faceted Box for Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing a faceted treat box. I love this little box, and I realized I hadn’t made one in a long time. I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. The pearls were colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers in Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Night of Navy, and Dark Shaded Spruce.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer and Simply Scored Tool:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock (CS) cut to 7-7/8″ x 11-1/4″
  • scored the Cherry Cobbler CS along the short side at 2-1/2″, 4-5/8″, and 7-1/8″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 90 degrees so the skinny section is at the top, then scored only down to the second score line (cross one score line and stop at the second) at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 180 degrees, then scored only down to the first score line at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • used a ruler and stylus to score the diagonal lines as shown in the diagram
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut into 1-3/4″ strips, then cut into triangles 2″ wide (see diagram below)
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 1-1/8″ x 3″

Stamped with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set:

  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto the 1-1/8″ strip of Whisper White CS stamp set

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Cherry Cobbler
  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Night of Navy
  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Shaded Spruce 

Assembled the box:

  • made all cuts in the Cherry Cobbler base using Paper Snips (refer to diagram)
  • burnished all the folds in the Cherry Cobbler CS base with a Bone Folder (This is much more easily done after making the cuts.)
  • 8 DSP triangles glued onto the 8 triangular sides of the box (This is easier while it’s still flat, before assembling the box.)
  • DSP square glued onto the lid of the box
  • sentiment strip glued onto the lid of the box
  • pearls applied onto the sentiment strip
  • small triangular section at one end glued onto the inside of the large triangle at the opposite end (A & B on diagram)

Still Scenes for OSAT Blog Hop – Welcome to Our Holiday Catalog

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop headerIt’s time for the OSAT Blog Hop for September! This month we’re featuring products from the brand new 2019 Holiday Catalog. I used the Still Scenes Bundle (Still Scenes stamp set and Snow Globe Scenes Dies) on page 43 to make a shaker card. The Snow Globe Shaker Domes make it easy – there is adhesive on both sides of the rims.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Still Scenes stamp set:

  • outer sentiment in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then heat embossed in silver
  • inner sentiment in black ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base

Cut using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies:

  • trees and 2 deer from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • hole for shaker dome from the Basic Black CS layer
  • snow globe base from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet (one detailed and solid)

Cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:

  • heat embossed sentiment
  • slightly larger piece from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • NOTE: There isn’t a die in the set to cut the sentiment as I wanted to, so I used a larger die and cut it twice as shown below. I cut the Silver Foil piece the same way.

Embossed using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder:

  • Basic Black CS layer (be sure to emboss it after die cutting)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • trees and one deer adhered onto the front of the card base using Snail, so they will show through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the top edge of the shaker dome, the dome put through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer, and adhered onto the back side, 
  • Snowflake Sequins laid over the trees and deer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the bottom edge of the shaker dome, and Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base, so the sequins are trapped under the shaker dome
  • NOTE: Be sure you press well to seal around the shaker dome. I left it a bit loose and the sequins stick to the edges.
  • detailed base adhered onto the solid base using Snail, then adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • front sentiment adhered onto the die cut Silver Foil, then the foil adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • second deer adhered onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base using Snail, and any excess trimmed away using Paper Snips
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Mercury Glass Acetate Mini Curvy Keepsake Box

Today I’m sharing another 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek, and another Make & Take project I made for our August Candy Hearts team meeting. Not too long ago we had the Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies, which made a larger version of this box. Now we have this adorable mini version. We used the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and Mercury Glass Designer Acetate to make this adorable box. It’s perfect for a battery operated tea light, small treats and gifts.
