Fun New Creative Inspiration + a Winter's Eve Preview


Hi Friend,
How is your week going? Have you had a chance to unplug from the busyness that summer brings  and escaped to your craft hideaway to create?  I don't know about you, but I find that it's super important to have scheduled times each month to create. Not only is this a stress reliever from everyday cares, but it also allows you to express your creativity and experience the joy of making something beautiful that will brighten someone else's day!

Winter's Eve Preview: Reminisce Christmas blessings from years gone by with a tranquil collection featuring an array of illustrations bringing back memories of silent nights by candlelight, choir voices resonating from the little church in the wildwood, woodland creatures foraging for food beneath the glistening snow, windows illuminated with the soft glow of a warming fireplace, and beautifully decorated Christmas trees ready to engage the imagination and excitement of little boys and girls eager to see what lies beneath them on Christmas morning! The Winter's Eve Collection is debuting on August 9th, 2017. Be the first to preview it here: http://hcgo.co/WintersEve


Take a breather, sit down with your favorite beverage and take some time to absorb the creativity displayed through the cards, layouts and altered projects created by our talented design team members. Hugs, Emma Lou

Watch this tutorial for tips on using the Festive Holly collection here

Instructions: Start by creating a 6" x 6" easel card out of white card stock. For a tutorial on how to make an easel card click (here).

The Festive Holly images were stamped on white card stock with Northern Pine ink and die cut with the matching dies before coloring with a combination of Festive Berries and Pearlescent Ivy inks and accented with Red Stickles. Stamp two spruce trees in Northern Pine ink and diecut. I sponged color on the rest of the tree sing Northern pine and Rich Cocoa ink. The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock with Rich Cocoa ink and die cut with the Rebel Rose Untamed Tags die and accented with Crystal Clear glitter. Arrange all as shown and adhere using a dries clear glue.

Watch this tutorial for tips on creating vellum poinsettias HERE

Instructions: To prepare your ornament- First I rinsed the ornament with warm water and dried it with paper towel. Now the fun part...squirt some of the Pledge into the ornament, enough to swirl around inside the ornament and cover the whole inside surface. Try not create too many bubbles inside. Pour the excess liquid out and add your glitter. I had to keep adding, it took a little more than I thought it would. Just keep turning the ornament until you have full glitter coverage. That's it, let dry.

Stamp the poinsettia image using white ink on vellum and die cut. Gently shape the smallest flower. I added beads to the middle of the flower using 3D Crystal Lacquer. Let dry. Add glitter to the tips of the flower petals using a glue pen and Crystal Clear glitter. Let dry. 

Stamp and die cut one of the small holly clusters. I added colour first with the dark green pencil with shading and then with the Chameleon pens. Then I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to all of the holly berries. Let dry. Shape the holly and cut apart in the middle. I added the poinsettia and holly to the ornament using hot glue. Add ribbon to the ornament.

Instructions: My card size is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". Make card base using white cardstock. You can find instructions and dimensions for different size cards on Pinterest and Splitcoast Stampers.

Cover the panels of your card with pieces of the paper collection and I added glitter to the lamp on the front of the card. I also cut out a piece of the pretty paper and used dimensional tape to adhere to the front and I added glitter on it as well. 

Next I stamped the wreath, the mittens and the poinsettia and holly images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and used the coordinating dies to die cut them. I used the Dove Blender pen and Memento inks, Bamboo Leaves, Lady Bug and Rhubarb Stalk to color all the images and then I added glitter here and there on them. Set these pieces aside to dry. I also stamped the sentiment in black ink on one of the panels at the bottom of the card. Now you are ready to glue the different elements onto the card panels and your card is ready to go.

Instructions: Card size is 4 X 5 1/2" closed, 4 X 12" open. Cut 12 X 12 heavy weight card stock to 5 1/2 X 12" and score at 4" and 8". Cut 3 pieces of red designer paper to 3 3/4" X 5 1/4" and 3 pieces of fence and gate designer paper to 3 1/2" X 5". Over a hot iron (I set the iron upside down on a stand) sprinkle chunky white embossing powder over the top portion of the fence and gate designer paper and melt chunks. Glue the red paper to each panel and then the gate paper (be sure to keep clear of the score lines). 

Stamp and die cut Jingle Bell piece three times and the individual bells three times as well on white cardstock using black ink. Stamp and diecut holly pieces and wagon wheel in black ink and gate in Danube Blue ink. Stamp Small poinsettia twice and Large Poinsettia from white cardstock and die cut. Color all pieces using Copic markers I've listed. Add some snow to the fence tops, on the holly and on the wagon wheel. Pop the wagon wheel up on the left panel and add more snow to the ground. Pop the gate up on the middle section and add snow to the ground.  Make the swag on the gate using a piece from the Holly Frame and the Holly from Festive Holly. Cute the sign out from the designer paper and thread white floss through holes punched with an 1/8" hole punch. On the third panel I added the holly and berry pieces and more snow on the bottom. Tie two of the jingle bell belts together by the buckles with red ribbon. Then finish going along the entire top with belt pieces, cutting as needed.

Instructions: Cut the lamp from the Christmas Eve SVG file and assemble per the instructions. Black cardstock was used for the frame and the designer paper was from the Festive Holly Paper Collection. Thread a Darice brass planted candle lamp through the SVG frame. The edges of the lamp were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink to give a vintage look. 

Stamp the holly leaves and cardinal on X-Press it Blending Cardstock Guacamole ink and diecut with coordinating die. Do not be concerned about the berries and cardinal being stamped with a light green. Green is a complement to red and will appear a light brownish color. This will add dimension and contour to your image. The following Copic color combo was used - (Berries - R20, R21, R22, R24, Cardinal - R00, R20, R21, R22, C1, C3 and  C5). The leaves were gently shaped with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. 

The Classic Rose stamp was stamped on white cardstock using Desert Sand Dye Ink and die cut using the coordinating Classic Rose Die.  For a vintage look, the leaves were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a small amount of Berrylicious Fluid Chalk Ink. The petals were lightly misted with water and shaped with the Deluxe Flower shaping Kit. Crackle Paste was applied and sprinkled with Frosting Powder. The petals were heat set. Emma Lou has a wonderful tutorial on creating roses HERE Christmas red ribbon was tied around the street lamp. The holly and cardinal images, and roses were applied with a glue gun. Safety Alert-This can be plugged into a light socket but make certain to not leave it unattended.

Watch this tutorial for tips on creating vellum poinsettias HERE

Instructions: Begin by cutting a 6 x 6" piece of red card stock and adhere a piece of ribbon about 18" long, cut another piece of red cardstock 6 x 7" and score 1/2" and 6 1/2".

Place the Classic Border Basic dies in the center of the 6 x 7" one and run through your machine, now you have 2 pieces, one for the left and one for the right. Apply Score tape on the back at the 1/2" you scored on each end and adhere to the 6 x 6" piece. This is your card base. Choose the 6 x 6" card front from the Festive Holly Paper Collection and adhere to the inside of the card. Choose more of the paper from the pack and using another of the Border dies cut to where it will go on the inside left and right. Use the stamp positioner and stamp sentiments on both sides and 2 more for the outside of the card. Tie the card shut.

Stamp the Holly Berry Jingle image on white card stock with the Black Memento ink and color in with the pencils, I also used the blender pen to hide pencil marks. Die cut using the matching die, die cut another one out of thin chipboard and adhere together, add to the left side of the card. Stamp the poinsettias and leaves on vellum with the White Color Box ink and emboss with the white embossing powder. Heat Set. Color veluum from the backside using stack and store daubers. Color Poinsettia's with the Lipstick Red ink and the leaves with the Bamboo Leaves ink.

Die cut with the matching dies, shape and adhere to card. To finish add the Crystal Clear Powder to the leaves, flowers and snow in the image. Add yellow crystal drops to the center of the flower. Visit my blog for a tutorial on how I made this card.

Shape them using your Deluxe Flower shaping kit. Using a piercing tool pierce the centers to add the stamen centers. I use hot glue to give them a really good hold.

Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the petunias https://youtu.be/KOy_qNB9OAk

Instructions: Use a small 3" tall terra cotta flower pot as a container to plant your own handcrafted petunias. Cut a small block of styrofoam to fit within the pot and use hot glue to secure it at the bottom. Cut 6 pieces of floral wire to 4 - 6" in length and place the wire into the styrofoam. Use the hot glue gun to secure each wire in place. Drop a handful of potting soil into the top of pot to cover the styrofoam and give a more realistic appearance of an actual plant. Mix dries clear glue with a small amount of water and pour it over the potting soil, soaking it completely. Doing this will keep the potting soil from falling out once it has dried.

Stamp the small set of petunias 2 times from HCPC-3785 Small Classic Petunia and the large set of petunia 3 times from HCPC-3786 Large Classic Petunia stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Using from the Sunrise Lily die, diecut multiples of the small and large flower base. 

Use the Stack and Store daubers for detailed application on the petunias and leaves. Use Lime Pastel to color both sides of the leaves. Use Guacamole ink to shade in darker on the front center of leaves. For petunias use Berrylicious ink on both sides of the petunia petals and flower bases. Use Dark Peony to shade in darker the front centers of petals. Dab a bit of the Gold stamp paint onto a non-porous surface such as clear cardstock, spritz with water to dilute and mix. Sponge the mixture onto the leaves. Make another stamp paint mixture, this time with the Magenta stamp paint. Sponge mixture over the petunias. 

After the petunias and leaves are dry, shape them. Use hot glue to assemble each flower base into a small cone shape. Fill each cone with glue and press shaped petunia into it. This helps the petunia to keep its upright shape.

Use hot glue to attach leaves and petunias onto the floral wire. After placing the petunias and leaves, you can bend and trim the wire to your liking to give it a completed full look.
