Good morning to all my crafty friends! Beth from Beth's Beauties here today. I have some thank you cards to send out after the holiday season, so this is one of those cards that I will be mailing. The card file is from SVG Attic's Winter Illuminations kit.
This card was very easy to assemble! I opted to use the front panel without the stitching holes. I used patterned papers from DCWV's Blue Noel stack and a ribbon for the scarf. Adhesives used include Scotch Tacky Glue and Glue Dots Glue Lines (for the ribbon). I also stamped a sentiment from APB Let It Snow stamp set in black in the lower left corner.
Hello Cyndy from Cyndy G Time Made For Me. Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic. The Candle Heart Cutout 3D Boxes. These boxes are so cute and not too hard to put together. Instead of doing mine in the Valentine theme I used winter paper.
I also added the slice form snow flake from the SDS Ornament Kit. The snowflake is 2" tall. Since I made it so small I only cut three snowflakes for the center.
I used a forth snowflake as an accent on the tall candle and tied some Chocolate Sprinkles Trendy Bakers Twine around the candles. The lights are just the short tea lights or if you have them you could use a tea light that has the look of a melted candle.
As I promised, here is my last Christmas post this year and I need to do this a little quick, because I need to finish making tomorrow's dessert today.
Ok....I made one of the older files this time, namely Santa's Arm Chair Box from the JGW Santas Repose kit:
I simply couldn't shake the vision of Santa coming home after a busy night delivering presents and being exhausted, just wanting some quiet time in his chair in front of the fireplace.
The chair is made from AC Cardstock in Pomegranate, Cranberry and Vanilla along with several pieces of patterned paper from "St. Nicholas" by Graphic45 and two shades of green Pearl paper.
I used two ball chains to hang the Santa sign onto the chair.
I wanted to make a footstool too but ran out of time - but I imagined making one with the Candle 3D Stand 3 Inch Pillar just downsized and maybe altered a bit - oh well some other time.
Santa's hat is from the Santa Clause 3D Canister in the JGW Winter Friends Canister kit and the stocking I snatched from the Stocking Trio A6 Card that I found in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #88698. I just added some Stickles Burgundy glitter glue to the top and bottom for a little extra detail.
They are made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and various patterned papers from the "St. Nicholas" Collection.
There….I kept it short for once ha ha. Now it's dessert making time and then onto wrapping the last gifts - then I'm all set for celebrating Christmas tomorrow night (we do the whole eating and gift giving on the eve of the 24th. here in Denmark)
Happy Holidays to all of you - whatever you're celebrating and I hope you'll have wonderful couple of days of rest, relaxation and maybe…..just maybe….a little time to sneak of and craft a little.
Good morning to all my crafty friends! Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog. This is a very busy time of the year for me, as it is for many of you, I am sure! The project I am sharing today is a little different than usual. It is a Christmas bow made out of felt for my baby girl!
I started out by picking the colors of felt that I wanted to make the bow out of. The glitter gold is not actually felt, but is found by the felt in my craft store. It worked well in the same way as the felt did for my project.
Next, I cut pieces of the Bow 3D Lattice 2 Layer file (is also part of the Decorated Large Tote Gable Box file) out of Reynolds Freezer Paper. The parts of the file that I used were the solid bow and the straight tails. I also broke apart those pieces in my software and deleted the holes that were in the original files so I was left with the following pieces:
The measurements for the pieces above were (top to bottom) 5.25" wide, 4.5" wide, 3.75" wide, and 2.75" wide. The next step was to iron the freezer paper shiny side DOWN onto the back side of the felt. Use medium low heat on your iron (or a polyester setting) and use a thin pressing cloth. You know it is heated enough when the freezer paper sticks to the felt.
Here are all of the pieces ironed onto the felt.
Next, using a scissors, cut around the freezer paper templates. Gently peel the freezer paper off of the felt. Your pieces will look like this:
Using a hot glue gun, add a dot of glue to the center of the bow, fold in one end, then repeat for the other side of the bow. Assemble each bow piece the same way, then use hot glue to build the bow from the bottom up, starting with the tail piece, then largest to smallest bow piece. I tied a piece of gold ribbon around the assembled bow and added a Christmas button to finish it off.
Here it is on my little sweetheart! Now she is ready for Christmas!
Hello crafters. This is my favorite time of year. I love all the Christmas decorations and children’s Christmas programs. We recently saw my niece perform in the Nutcracker. It is such a sweet story with all the scenes that make you think of Christmas. It made me thnik of the Nutcracker boxcard from the CG Nutcracker Dream.
I just love this card. I did mine in soft colors but I know it would look amazing in rich reds and greens. I added a button clock face to my clock and several other small details to my tree and front banner.
What a wonderful card to give to a child or adult who had performed in the Nutcracker! Thank you for stopping by.
Hello all. Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here with my latest project. I have been anxious to make this new 3D Classic Model Truck file. I just needed the time to make it. Well this is probably a first in the history of me being on the SVG Attic Inspiration Team for years, where I had to ask for an extension because I needed more time and didn't want to rush this.
Note, there are additions I made to this file that ARE NOT included in this file. They are personal additions so please don't expect to find it when you purchase said file!
After I cut out all my main pieces in Bazzill Cardstock's 'Robin Egg', I aged it with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink as well as some Teresa Collins Fiesty Red Pigment Ink.
I decided my truck needed a seat. This is one of those additions that does not come with this file.
The wood pieces I felt needed to be embossed using a We R' Memory Keepers wood grain embossing folder and my Sizzix Big Shot.
I also added the wood slats to the bed of the truck. I used a silver gel pen to color in the added 'screw holes'.
I took the same Walnut Stain ink and distressed the wood grain after embossing it.
At this point, (the end of day 1, took me 3 days to do this much detailing) I was looking at the grill and thought you know what, I want those lights to sparkle. So I set out to customize my grill.
At the end of day 2 I was so close, yet so far away.
Day 3 I decided I needed to reinforce the bottom carriage with more cardstock simply because the battery pack I have in the cab was a bit too heavy for the carriage to handle.
At the end of day 3 I was running out of steam. I was going to cut a tree and wreath out in paper, but then I found these sprigs of greenery in a box downstairs. So I compromised and made what I could out of them!
Now, you cannot have a Christmas Truck without snow. And wouldn't you know that all THREE stores I went to were all out of the fake snow tex snow.
Pinterest to the rescue. I made my own fake snow with 1 1/2 cups baking soda, glitter, and 1/4 cup white hair conditioner. Glitter is optional, but not in this house. Especially with the husband standing there watching me make this. I added in more just for his benefit.
Yes, the lights are real light up lights. This is an addition, NOT included with this file!
I had the best smelling snow this side of the Mississippi for sure.
I made the trees removable so the detail of the bed can be seen.
Even the running boards are wood engrained.
Phew now that was a task! Thank you so much for joining me today.
