Autumn is a Second Spring – TKJ Feature

Debbie TKJ 10 24 142 300x225 Autumn is a Second Spring   TKJ Feature

Hello crafty friends!  Welcome to my blog today … I’m excited to share a cute little something featuring products from the Kraft Outlet today!

Debbie TKJ 10 24 143 300x225 Autumn is a Second Spring   TKJ Feature

I started with a base of Buff Ivory Cardstock onto which I layered a die cut scalloped pattern paper layer and then a die cut blue cardstock layer.  I stamped the scarecrow and hay bale images onto Buff Ivory Cardstock using the Stand Add-on: Scarecrow stamp set.  The additional images and clothes were stamped onto pattern papers and everything was die cut using the Stand Add-on: Scarecrow Sweet Cuts die.  The hat, shirt, face and shoes were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol and then everything was paper pieced together.  I adhered the adorable little scarecrow fella onto a Tiny Wooden Clothespin and then adhered all the little pieces onto the base of the card to create a cute scene.

Some Bright Hemp Cording was wrapped around the base of the card several times and then two Rusty Bells were tied onto the cording.  A sentiment was stamped using the Sweeties Wagon stamp set and then to finish things off, several Creamsicle Sequins were added for a little sparkle and shine!

Paper Sweeties October 2014 Release Rewind!

Thanks so much for allowing the Design Teamies and I to share our projects with you for the October *NEW* product release!  Today I’m sharing a project I created using some of my favorite previously released stamp and die sets in combination with a couple new goodies …

papersweeties debbie 10 16 142 300x225 Paper Sweeties October 2014 Release Rewind!

… I created this ‘thank you’ card for the owner of A Stamp Artist Place — she invited Paper Sweeties out to her beautiful store in Swannanoa, NC the first weekend in October and is NOW CARRYING our products in her lovely store!  What a fabulous paper craft store nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina — we all enjoyed a perfect fall weekend with lots of card making and crafty shopping!!  I designed the card to look like me selling stamps at a show …

Feature Me Friday at The Kraft Outlet!

Debbie TKJ 10 10 143 300x225 Feature Me Friday at The Kraft Outlet!

Hello Kraft Outlet friends!  For today’s Designer’s Feature, I am showcasing a couple projects I created using some yummy Kraft cardstock, fun embellishments and an emboss & ink technique.  The card is a remake of a card first shared at the Kraft Journal Challenge Blog for challenge #73 – Emboss It – back in May 2012!  I created this gift set for a co-worker that is moving out of state and included a gift card inside the pillow box!

Debbie TKJ 10 10 144 300x225 Feature Me Friday at The Kraft Outlet!

For the card, I began with a base of Buff Ivory Card Stock onto which I adhered a piece of embossed and inked Brown Kraft Card Stock.  Next, I created a sweet nosegay consisting of two Antique Stick Pins, a bow made out of Rose Beige Hand-Stained Bias Tape and some Natural Hemp Cording.  I adhered a satin bloom to the top of the bow.  The frame was backed with a piece of Vintage Dictionary Pages and then the letter ‘B’ was adhered.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment onto a label die cut from another piece of  Buff Ivory Card Stock and then adhered two Bubblegum Sequins.

Debbie TKJ 10 10 142 300x225 Feature Me Friday at The Kraft Outlet!

For the gift card box, I embossed and inked a Small Kraft Pillow Box.  I then added a bow using more  Rose Beige Hand-Stained Bias Tape and two Antique Stick Pins.  I adhered a paper bloom and a couple of glittered chipboard leaves.  To finish off the sweet box, I stamped a sentiment from the Life is a Special Occasion stamp set onto a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag and then tied it around the nosegay on the box.
