Join Us for World Cardmaking Day 2016!!!

 

The arrival of fall means that World Cardmaking Day is just around the corner, and this year it falls on Saturday, October 1st! In the past, we’ve done sketch challenges, but this year I thought we’d try something new.

Working at Paper Wishes, I’m thankful everyday for the love, support and creativity that comes directly from our Paper Wishers. You applaud and cheer our successes, and if we make a mistake, together we work to make it right (hey, no one’s perfect)! But above and beyond that, your creativity is practically infinite! You post pictures in our galleries, on Facebook and even mail us the amazing projects you create. You’ve created a wonderful community on the Paper Wishes Message Board where you connect and craft with boundless enthusiasm. You travel from out-of-state to attend our local Girlfriends Getaway just to create with us!

You choose Paper Wishes, and support Hot Off The Press products. And that’s the biggest (and most humbling) reward because truly, we’re here to inspire your creative spirit. When you buy our products, it means we’ve done our job.

 

Some of our girlfriends! 🙂

 

So this year for World Cardmaking Day, I thought I’d challenge you all to create cards around a simple theme: Thankfulness.

While you could also be inspired by the season, this “thankfulness” theme can be interpreted any way you wish! Maybe it’s a fall-themed greeting card, but it could also be a  “thank you” card! Or a special card created just for someone you’re thankful for. Whatever you decide, we want you to join us in creating a special Thankfulness card!

 

 

Post your card(s) here in the comments, or post them to our Facebook WCMD event page! Our contest closes on Monday, October 3rd, 2016 at 8am PST so you have one week to express your creativity and show us what “thankfulness” means to you. I can’t wait to see!

Thank you all for being part of the Paper Wishes family!

Paper Wishes Celebrates “Live Creative” Day!

September 14th is National Live Creative Day and we all know that creativity comes in many, many forms! The people who work at Paper Wishes are certainly a creative bunch, and their creativity is manifested in lots of ways beyond card making and papercrafting (although there’s lots of that too). I’d like to share with you some of the people I work with here at Paper Wishes, and the creative endeavors that they pursue!

LeNae is a member of our Design Team, and as of this September, she’s been at Paper Wishes for 22 years! She is all kinds of creative, and environmentally conscious as well. She felted an old wool sweater in hot water and sewed it into a very pretty tote bag!

Meet Melissa from Customer Service! Her customer service skills are surpassed only by her fabulous sense of humor and possibly her horsemanship! Here she is riding while wearing what’s been dubbed as the “Hel-hat!” Melissa created this striking helmet/hat combo to protect herself from falls as well as sunburn! Very creative!

Kelly is one of our wonderful, irreplaceable Warehouse Assistants, and she’s also an incredibly gifted quilter! Here are two of her latest projects—a couple of fall-themed mini quilts!

Brittany is our new Editor/Proofer and she probably has one of the most decorated offices here! She has created lots of rustic-yet-glittery art for her walls—here she is with one of her favorite, colorful accents!

 

brittanyofficeart

 

You all know Gail from our webisodes, and she’s a true artist! Here are just two of the many drawings and illustrations she’s created.

The Christmas Tree is from a series of drawings she created for her family, and “Disconnected” is an illustration that was published in Perceptions, a local art & poetry publication. Here’s a closeup!

Next up is Cristina from Marketing! She uses her Silhouette Cameo to create amazing invitations, signs & more! Here’s one of her recent projects…

Victoria, another longtime member of the Paper Wishes team, creates our Paper Wishes catalogs, Personal Shopper newsletters and lots more! An avid spinner and knitter, she hand knitted this shawl from silk & wool yarn she spun herself—wow!!

And finally, here’s me! After photographing everybody else, I figured I’d better pony up with something too! Here are a couple of the cards I’ve had fun making recently!

 

mecards

 

AND I plan on making even more cards at Girlfriends Getaway on Sept. 17th! This year I’ll get to be there, along with my mom, to get in on the fun and hopefully provide a little behind-the-scenes coverage!

This is a sold-out event, but you can still craft along with us by ordering the 2016 Girlfriends Getaway Kit! The kit comes with everything you need to create the same projects we will make at Girlfriends Getaway PLUS you get Paulette’s DVD that guides you through step by step! There is a limited number of kits and soon you’ll be able to sign up to be notified when the kit becomes available so stay tuned! 😀

What will we be making at Girlfriends Getaway this year? I’m glad you asked because I have one more creative item to share with you! Susan from our Design Team came up with this fabulous clock (yes, a real clock!) that everyone who attends Girlfriends Getaway (or orders the kit) will have a chance to make—take a look!

I love this, and I can’t wait to create one at Girlfriends Getaway! I hope you enjoyed getting to meet some of the Paper Wishes team, and we hope that you will find a special way to celebrate National Live Creative Day! Let us know what you’ll be creating in the comments below—share a photo if you have one! We’d love to see!

Steampunk Collection + Masculine Card Ideas!!!

 

Sometimes “pretty” comes easy, while “manly” remains a little more elusive. How do you make a pretty (or rather, manly) card for a man? Paper Wishes designers to the rescue! Below are some of my favorite masculine looks our incredible design team created using Hot Off The Press’ new Steampunk Collection!

Susan created the card below using Steampunk Foiled Fancies™ which are gold-foiled, deeply embossed die-cuts just waiting for your creative touch! Ink them, sand them, or add paint, markers and more for incredible effects. Susan colored her Foiled Fancies™ hot air balloon, gears and butterfly with Spectrum Noir™ markers. She then stamped black designs from the Fancy Patterns stamp set using Black StazOn® ink. Click on the project for details.

Click here for Susan's instructions!

Here’s a gorgeous card from Teresa who has embellished a Steampunk Foil Paper Tole “winged clock” with tiny, self-adhesive copper “nailheads.” She’s also used the Steampunk stamp set and Gold StazOn® ink for her card greeting! I just love this look, especially with that brown twill ribbon!

Click here for Teresa's instructions!

Click here for Teresa’s instructions!

 

On this version, Gail customized her Foiled Fancies™ by inking them with black StazOn®, and applying rubbing alcohol over the top for a pewter look. She then combined her Foiled Fancies™ with Steampunk Scrapbooking Dazzles™. She backed her Dazzles™ heart and gears with Mocha Suede specialty paper, then layered her pieces together with foam tape. Wonderful dimension!!

Click for Gail's instructions!

Click for Gail’s instructions!

 

Steampunk is the perfect collection for creating masculine cards, with deep brown and golden tones, teal accents and “manly” motifs like gears, top hats and more. You’ll be able to make the perfect birthday card for your husband, son, father, brother or any other special guy!

 

I hope you have a love-filled Valentine’s Day! <3

Brighten Up With Our “Colorist” Collection!

The February sun is shining down on Hot Off The Press today, and I could’ve swore I felt the tiniest twitch of spring fever. Not full-blown-can’t-focus-must-clean-my-house spring fever. Just a pinch. Enough to remind me that, eventually, winter will give way to springtime.

To shake off some of the winter grays, I’m sharing our new Colorist Collection with you! The 12″x12″ paper pack features black and white outline artwork on one side, with vibrantly colored, dotted patterns on the other! These are some of the most versatile papers for papercrafters EVER! The black and white motif, contrasted against the bold colors and simple polka dots allows these papers to really travel through the seasons.

Below, Gail’s adorable easel card was covered with Colorist papers, and her framed robin focal (cut from the Feathered Friends Colorist book) was colored in with Spectrum Noirâ„¢ markers. I love how she used a ribbon bow to prop up her card front! And the floral background paper inside is so striking when left black and white! Click on the card for Gail’s supplies and instructions.

Susan’s card below features Colorist Scrapbooking Dazzlesâ„¢ stickers, and I love the look of this card! For her greeting, she simply placed the Dazzlesâ„¢ “Celebrate…” sticker onto matted Colorist papers. The flowers were made by placing Dazzlesâ„¢ flower stickers onto Double-Sided Adhesive. She covered the adhesive with Crystal Micro Glitter, and backed the flowers with Colorist papers for beautiful sparkle and shine! Click her card for more details.

Here’s a scrapbook page that LeNae created using Colorist papers, Colorist Scrapbooking Dazzlesâ„¢ and Colorist ribbon. You can color these papers any way you like. Use markers, colored pencils, chalk, ink, anything… and make it your own! 🙂

This last card easily makes my “Top 10” list—take a look! LeNae has covered a Center Step card with Colorist papers that she colored in with ArtGrip Watercolor Pencils. The focal is Florals for Colorists Paper Tole which is a quick and easy way to get a gorgeous, playful look like this! You can click on the card for supplies and instructions.

5 Sweet Valentine’s Day Card Ideas!

Valentine’s Day is coming up so I wanted to share some great Valentine ideas using Hot Off The Press’ Love + 5 Hearts cutting die set! It’s a versatile cutting die collection with a variety of heart sizes and designs, and “Love” in a gorgeous script font. I’m highlighting my favorite parts of each card, but click on any card for full instructions and supplies used. 🙂

 

Below, Amy’s card uses the absolutely adorable Penelope Scrapbooking Papers (and quite honestly, I’m sitting here wondering why I haven’t got a set of them yet—ha)! I love that she die cut a white heart doily frame, and then places it over a white die cut mat. The effect is very sweet, and I love the dimension it adds! The studded border was created with Flamingo Liquid Pearlsâ„¢ but you could also use Sticklesâ„¢ glitter glue or new Nuvo Crystal Drops. So pretty! Click on the card for Amy’s instructions.

This next card features a match made in heaven! Gail used Hot Off The Press’ new Heart Window Flap Die-Cut Cards which are perfectly sized for Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies! The swirly heart focal was die cut from gorgeous Pearl Adhesive Sheets and combined with vibrant Honeysuckle papers to create this stunner. Click on the card to see Gail’s directions.

If you enjoy stenciling, check out LeNae’s card below, created using the All Over Swirls Stencil from Hot Off The Press. I love the simplicity, plus it’s easy to make this card quickly and in any color! LeNae used a heart die-cut to mask the heart shape in the center—then she inked over it using a stylus for the soft, blended look you see. This is a great card for a guy! Click on the card for LeNae’s instructions.

Susan made this awesome shaker card, below, using Emma’s Garden papers along with the Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies. Unfortunately, some of the heart embellishments are no longer available, but Susan shares her great instructions on creating a lovely shaker card, and it’s a simple matter to substitute other papers or embellishments—just click on the card!

Finally, one more card from Amy with a different look. She made this card with Simply Susan Double-Sided Papers and I love the colors, and well as the chevron. This is another card idea that’s perfect for guys! She used the Heart to Heart stamp set which is yet another great find for Valentine’s crafting as it has tons of sentiments all about love! Click on the card for Amy’s directions.

Chevron & Hearts Card designed by Amy Hurley-Purdie

 

Love + 5 Hearts cutting dies have been around for a couple years now, so chances are you might already have them! If not, you might want to add them to your wish list as hearts get used so often! I hope this post inspires you to start creating some Valentine’s Day love!

NEW Feathered Friends & Zen Dragonflies Colorist Books!

Hello!

Today I wanted to show you the two latest Colorist books from Hot Off The Press! These cute little coloring books feature gorgeous designs, each printed on its own cardstock page and sized perfectly for a card. Yes, we know coloring is therapeutic, but let’s put our coloring to work for us and use it to create a special focal, whether for a card, page or even a gift bag!

Last week Paulette and Gail were at the CHA MEGA Show in Southern California, and alas—it was discovered we needed samples for the new books. So Gail and our awesome buyer, Kayla, found themselves in the hotel room coloring. You’ll get to see Kayla’s card on an upcoming webisode!

 

IMG_0717.JPG

 

Our two new books are Zen Dragonflies for Colorists and Feathered Friends for Colorists, and the images are some of my favorites so far!

Here’s a sample from Zen Dragonflies that LeNae colored with Spectrum Noirâ„¢ pens, and accented with Sticklesâ„¢ glitter glue! This piece would look amazing on a card. Just stamp a greeting onto one of the labels or tags that come with the book, add a bow if you like, and you’re done!

Here’s another design from Zen Dragonflies. Debbie colored her page with Spectrum Noirâ„¢ Blendable Pencils, matted it on Purple Circles Holographic paper and glued it to a gift bag—so clever! I zoomed in so you’ll be able to see the design, as well as the little gift tag hanging from the handle. Each Colorist book includes 2 sheets of matching labels and tags to use however you like (our graphic designers think of everything)!

Feathered Friends is our other must-have Colorist book! Gail did an incredible job coloring this sample, and she used something that most of us already have—ink pads! She used Art Daubers to color the frame (you “wear” the daubers on your fingers—cool!) Then she tapped the inks onto a craft sheet or acrylic block, and actually used a paintbrush to “paint” her owl. Great ideas, Gail!

Click to zoom

 

 

And now for the coup-de-grace, Gail’s stunning Owl Center Step Card! The simplicity of the card highlights the awesome job she did coloring her owl. She used Spectrum Noirâ„¢ pens to color her owl, and if you haven’t tried these markers yet, put them on your wish list!! There are TONS of colors available, and they are grouped into color families for seamless blending. Love them!

Click for supplies and instructions

 

I hope these projects will inspire you to take your coloring out of the book, and onto a card! Make your coloring count! 😀

 

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Sunshine & Raindrops Dazzlesâ„¢ Stickers + Project Ideas!

Happy Tuesday, Paper Wishers!

It looks like Paulette, Gail and the others are having an amazing time at the CHA 2016 MEGA Show in Anaheim, CA. They will be back home tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve discovered!

Today I’m going to show you my favorite new Dazzlesâ„¢ stickers—Sunshine & Raindrops! They feature an adorable little girl under an umbrella, along with clouds, raindrops, sunshine and a rainbow. These super cute stickers have a trendy weather theme that works for all four seasons! I was so excited when these Dazzlesâ„¢ came out that I pretty much had to take them home and make a card. Immediately. So here’s the card I made, plus a couple of really stunning cards from the true professionals—our lovely Design Team!

I plan on picking up the stamp, plus more Dazzlesâ„¢ to create some fun cards for springtime. Thanks for stopping by—be sure to come back for new project ideas and inspiration!
