This lantern is so stunning and elegant!! I loved adding texture to the window panels (acetate) with an embossing folder. At the top, I used the Pine Bough and 3D Pinecone dies from the new release. I added a jump ring and some twine to make the lantern an ornament. Can you imagine how stunning it will look on the Christmas tree?!!!

There are no boundaries to imagination and creativity……

I just love making shaker cards! The Wondering Moose die is just beautiful amongst the Douglas Fir Beauties with the rockie mountains in the background. I accented the card with some Pine Boughs and a Winter Snowflake that are glistening with stickles. It’s a northern Christmas in July from your northern DT member!

Stage Card In A Box

Is there ever an end to creativity? Never!! I’m always trying to expand on my creative skills. Every time I make a card, I ponder…..what card style?……what dies will I use?……what do I want my final creation to look like? Then it hits me! Often times, it means me creating my own card style or thinking outside of that comfort level.

This time, I decided I wanted to create my own card in a box style. My design can be found on My Treasured Kutz website under Digital Downloads. Full instructions are below. Happy crafting!!!

06-01-2015-WH-StageCardInABox2 06-01-2015-WH-StageCardInABox3

Directions:

  1. Cut the card base, 3 long rectangular pieces and the plain rectangle piece in the card stock color of your choice. All should be cut using the same color.
  1. Cut the stitched rectangle and triangles in a coordinating color.
  1. Take your card base and fold on the vertical dotted lines starting from the left (small tab) to right, until you have a box.
  1. Glue the small tab to the inside of the end of the box.
  1. Now you will fold the front flap on the horizontal dotted line down to open the front of the box.
  1. Fold the left and right flap on the dotted lines to finish opening the box.
  1. Take your 3 long strips and fold on the dotted lines to form a ” I_____I ” shape. These will then be glued at different heights on the inside of the card to give more depth when decorated.
  1. Glue your stitched layers on to the front and side flaps.
  1. You can now add your sentiment to the plain rectangle mat which you will add to the flap with glue or pop dots.
  1. You are now ready to decorate the layers that you added inside the box. Choose the die cuts you want to decorate with and begin to glue them to the strips that you have inside the box.

You’re card is complete & ready to give to someone special!   🙂

Graduation Time

Isn’t Abnor Armstrong the cutest graduate?!! It’s time to get ready for graduation time and what better than a chalkboard style card.

11357301_1582223338694854_8775387009037256845_o 11157570_1582223342028187_7189708008379606047_o

I created this card using cork board for the base with chalkboard cardstock on top. The white inking of the words is heat embossed in clear. The graduation hats are just stamped in white and after drying, I used chalk on the surface and smudged it to give it a more chalkboard look.

Abnor Armstrong can be found in the die section of MTK.

RCKSTR LICENSE PLATE SHAKER

My creative mind is always in full speed! I created this shaker card in an SVG format that can be found under the Digital Downloads section at MTK…just follow the link on the right sidebar. Once you have your download you can follow the directions below to create this fabulous card. Happy crafting!!   🙂

04_18_2015_WH_LicencePlateShakerCard__21486.1432602119.1280.1280[1]

1.  Cut out your card base in the color of card stock you prefer. Your color choice will be your base in the licence plate frame (I used white). Fold on the dotted line.

2.  Then cut out your license plate frame…..for this I chose to use chrome card stock.

3.  Cut out the solid rounded rectangle in acetate.

4.  The larger circles with holes are your record bases and the smaller circles with holes are the record labels. I have cut my record bases in black and the labels can be cut in your choice of color. Glue the labels to your records bases.

5.  Next cut your music notes using the MTK-CK-4066 Musical Notes die.

6.  Now it’s time for assembly! Glue the license plate frame to the acetate rectangle. Once it dries, poke holes in the acetate where the corner plate frame holes are. Place brads in the holes.

7.  Apply foam tape just inside of the edge of  your card base, forming a square box shape (this will be your shaker). Do not remove the film off the top of the tape.

8.  Add your records, music notes, sequins & seed beads to the inside of the shaker square, keeping them away from the foam tape edge.

9.  Now remove the film off the tape & apply your license plate frame.

Your shaker card is now complete and ready for a sentiment on the inside  🙂

Golf Dad

Does your dad love golf? He will absolutely love this card!

I began this card using the  Golf Cart and  “Four” Clubs & Bag dies from My Treasured Kutz. Both are a sneak peek at what’s coming in their new launch. On each die cut I used Glossy Accents to give them some shine.

Screen_Shot_2015_05_08_at_1_36_21_PM__34299_1431117400_1280_1280

The MTK-DC-1067 Fairway Background Card Digital SVG Cut File will make dad feel like he’s on the course. I applied sand to the sand pits and used pop dots to create a layered effect.

Happy “I do” Day

Don’t you just love this carriage?!!

04-22-WH-BrideCard

This shaker card was made using metalic card stock for the accents to give it a touch of class for that special day. Beautiful Princess Cinde is a wonderful new die being released soon. She is a beautiful accent to the Pumpkin Carriage Outside Shaker Card Digital SVG Cut File. The miniature flowers and rugged foliage are also fabulous new dies being released by MTK.
