Winter’s Garden Cards from Teresa and Susan!

With Halloween now behind us, it feels safe to start delving into the holidays with a little Christmas cardmaking! Hot Off The Press’ 2015 Christmas Collection is called Winter’s Garden and it’s a fun, new look for Christmas! We’ve updated the traditional “Christmas red” by adding lime green, sky blue and chocolate, and I’m more than in love with the tiny holly pattern.

Here are two gorgeous cards from two of our top designers, Teresa Welch and Susan Cobb. These ladies are always creating inspiring projects, and I just had to share! Below, Teresa’s card makes use of Winter’s Garden Foil Paper Tole—a quick and easy route to a stunning focal! For a cleaner look, she’s used Winter’s Garden Die-Cuts on the inside. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the two!

Susan’s Tip: I pulled apart clusters of the Green Sugared Berries and added them individually at the edges of the paper tole embellishment as 3-dimensional accents. Ink the gold Dazzles™ “Joy” with metallic silver ink and let dry before adding it to the round die-cut on the inside.

Supplies:

 

Notice that both of these ladies chose to use doilies in their card designs! This adds a really sweet, vintage touch to each of these cards, which pairs really nicely with that charming holly pattern! Click on any item below to see more detail:

Inspired enough yet? I know I am! I look forward to making Christmas cards each year, and having a coordinated set makes it so much easier for me! And do you see that giant red grosgrain?! Be still, my beating heart! Anyway, I think I’ve drooled enough for the time being. Hope you enjoyed these lovely cards as much as I have. Have you started on your Christmas cardmaking yet?

Swirly Christmas Tree Card With Inka-Gold

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to show you an easy-yet-awesome Christmas card, just to (gently) get those holiday wheels turning… Because eventually, Christmas WILL be here (sorry for the shocker!) I love most things kraft, but you could just as easily stencil onto different cardstock or patterned paper to get the look you want. This card was created by our wonderful LeNae, who used Hot Off The Press’ brand new Swirly Christmas Tree Stencil. Take a look!

Merry Christmas Tree Card by LeNae Gerig

swirlytreecard

 

Designer’s Tip: Cover card with red Family Ties paper and ink edges of 4¾”x6¼” kraft cardstock black. Secure the Swirly Christmas Tree stencil with stencil tape and apply Mowed Lawn ink using the stylus and pad (or a cosmetic wedge). Apply Gold Inka-Gold randomly over the tree. Place the star/swirl at the top of the tree and apply Inka-Gold. Outline the swirl with gold glitter glue and add dots of glitter glue to the tree. Stencil a portion of the swirl on top corners with ink and Inka-Gold.

 

Supplies:

  • Family Ties Paper Pack (link)
  • Swirly Christmas Tree Stencil (link)
  • Mowed Lawn Distress Ink Pad (link)
  • Gold Inka-Gold (link)
  • Stickles™ Gold Glitter Glue (link)
  • Kraft Cardstock (link)
  • Black Ink Pad (link)
  • Stylus Handle & Pads (link)
  • Stencil Tape (link)
  • Glue Stick (link)
  • 5”x6 1/2” blank white card (link)

 

I really, really like this stencil! It’s perfect for your Christmas cards, and stenciling is so darn easy! Just add your ink, embossing paste, Inka-Gold or anything else (I’m sure you have something!) and it’s ready for you to embellish. Or just add a greeting—whatever look you choose, the beautiful, ornate design makes a really special focal!

Watch the webisode and join Paulette and Gail as they show exactly how to create this beautiful look!

 

 

Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check in later this week for an inside look at one of my favorite, favorite employee events—Hot Off The Press’ Annual Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Christmas Colorists™: Winter’s Garden Christmas Card

Happy Friday! Hooray, the weekend is practically here, and I’ve gotta say that this week has flown by. I’ve been learning my way around the Paper Wishes Facebook page which I’ve recently taken on, and I can’t believe we have so many followers (over 16,000)—it’s kind of amazing. I’m excited to be able to interact with so many Paper Wishers, so stop by and give us a “Like!”

It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and so the past two nights (after the kids are in bed) I’ve been coloring in our new Christmas Ornaments for Colorists coloring book. It’s been so relaxing! It’s this great combination of being creative while mentally “checking out” to a certain degree! And of course, after I finished, it just had to go on a card! One Christmas card down, so many to go! 🙂

 

Colorist Christmas Card

Supplies:

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir™ markers, and added Gold Smooch™ ink and Silver Stickles™ glitter glue accents. The background papers are from Hot Off The Press’ Winter’s Garden paper pack, which is fun, bright and cheery! It also plays nicely into my predilection for lime green :-D. Colorist books give you two of each design, so I was able to cut out the holly berries and foam tape a second layer on top of the first. Not perfect, but it was fun!

Definitely try one of these coloring books if you haven’t already! Let yourself unwind by coloring, and who knows? Maybe a card will be born! Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope you make a little time to create something you love!

Adorable Mini Gatefold Card Ideas!

 

Happy Wednesday to all our Paper Wishers!

Today I wanted to show you two incredible cards made with Hot Off The Press’ new Mini Gate Fold Cards Template! I’ve really enjoyed this particular template because the cards are pretty quick to make, so you can get right to all the creative fun of decorating and embellishing! The cards are 4″ square when closed for a super cute “mini” card. I love them! (I realize I say this about nearly everything, but it’s the truth—a girl could have a hundred “favorites” around here!)

This versatile template allows you to create 5 different gatefold focals—butterfly, label, heart, dragonfly and flower. There’s also a Christmas version with snowflake, ornament, gingerbread man, candy cane and Christmas tree options, as well as a Mini Envelope Template that creates coordinating 5″ square envelopes! Click each image for product details.

Dragonfly Gatefold Card by Gail Booth

4107443_0

Designer Tip: Follow the template instructions to trace, cut out and fold the dragonfly panels from cardstock, then swipe the dragonfly wings of the panels with VersaMark™. Dust with silver embossing powder and heat to melt. Cut out wings and mini dragonflies to emboss with silver and green glitter embossing powders as shown. Use Ultra Clear tape to attach the tabs to the back of the card base.

Supplies:

Right away you notice Gail’s luxurious, silver-embossed dragonflies! After embossing her dragonflies silver, she simply repeated the embossing process to add green glitter embossing to the edges and the smaller, center wings. She also added Silver Baby Bling rhinestones for extra sparkle. Because a card can never sparkle too much! 😀

 

 

LOVE Card by Susan Cobb

100615project4a

Designer’s Tip: To create the focal, cover the heart halves with ivory/tan swirls paper, trimming the edges even with the heart halves. Ink the edges of the heart halves with brown ink. Press out pieces #2 and #3 of the paper tole rose and layer with foam tape. With the card closed, center the rose on the heart, then glue only the left side of the rose to the left side of the heart. Color Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™  “LOVE” with brown ink and let dry. Place the word on the lower left portion of the card as shown.

Supplies:

  • Letterpress Double-Sided Paper Pack (link)
  • Letterpress 3-D Paper Tole (link)
  • Mini Gatefold Template (link)
  • Mini Envelope Template (link)
  • Tiny Words & Phrases, silver (link)
  • Thin Lines Border Dazzles™, gold (link)
  • Dark Brown Cardstock (link)
  • StazOnÂŽ Timber Brown ink pad (link)
  • Zots™ Adhesive Dots (link)
  • Foam Tape (link)
  • Fine tip black pen (link) or computer printer
  • Glue stick (link)
  • Font: American Typewriter

This version uses the heart focal shape, and coordinating Letterpress Paper Tole, which is a wonderful way to get a really extravagant look. Simply layer the numbered, die cut pieces with foam tape, and you’ll have a gorgeous, dimensional focal in just a couple minutes! It’s a really sweet card, and I could see creating some of these in advance so they’re ready to decorate as needed!

I hope you’re having a great week, and be sure to come back soon for more inspiring cardmaking ideas and behind-the-scenes news!

Super Spooky Halloween Card With Dazzles™ & Vellum + Trick or Treat Page!

 

It’s Friday! And I have to say, I’m SO ready for Halloween! For me, Halloween is like the big kickoff to the whole holiday season! So to get in the spirit, here are a couple hauntingly creative project ideas—a card and a page. I couldn’t bring myself to choose between them, so you get both! These projects use Halloween papers from Hot Off The Press, which feature a really fun mix of spooky themes and patterns.

 

halloweenpapers

 

The card you see was designed by Susan, and I just think it’s awesome. Backing her Spooky Dazzles™ cobwebs with vellum is so clever! The other cool thing Susan did was chalk her background text and flourishes papers with orange to get the exact look she desired.

Designer’s Tip: Back the Spooky Dazzles™ spider webs with white vellum, and then burnish the back of the vellum inside the Dazzles™ with the stylus against the foam pad for a 3-dimensional look. Add pieces of 3-D Zots™ to the back of each piece to hold the shape.

Supplies:

  • Darkroom Double-Sided Paper Pack (link)
  • Halloween Papers (link)
  • 1 White Vellum Sheet (link)
  • Spooky Dazzles™ (link)
  • Silver Jewel Dazzles™ (link)

  • 3D Zots™ adhesive dots (link)
  • Black ink pad (link)
  • Glue stick (link)
  • Craft pen knife (link)
  • Foam pad or mouse pad

 

The other project I chose is this scrapbook page from LeNae, and really, it’s pretty amazing how she created such great visual impact from relatively simple supplies, like black ink, Halloween papers and Spooky Dazzles™ stickers!

Designer’s Tip: Embellish photo surfaces with Spooky Dazzles™, placing them along the tops and corners. Add spiders climbing around!

  • Black Cardstock (link)
  • White Cardstock (link)
  • Black Ink Pad (link)

The long, vertical rectangles are a fun backdrop to your favorite Halloween pictures—in fact, I’d like to create my own version of this page sometime (if my girls would all hold still for the camera)!

Fall Catalog Project Favorites: Camo Truck Card

Hello everyone! Fall “Special Edition” Paper Wishes catalogs have started arriving in homes, but I wanted to give you a special, up-close look at one of my favorite projects (of the year, really)!

Debbie created this card using Truck O’ Goodies cutting dies from Hot Off The Press! Use these dies to create a cool, vintage pickup truck and lots of fun little seasonal accents to load into your truck—perfect for year round creating!

Amazing card, Debbie!

For this gorgeous, metallic camouflage look, Debbie die cut her truck and star from cardstock that she covered with IndigoBlu’s FlitterGlu, and then Yorkshire Dales Mega Flakes! This is an ingenious effect you could apply in lots of different ways for your masculine cards. The papers you see are from Hot Off The Press’ Trail Blazer Double-Sided Paper Pack.

 

Click the image to view product!

 

This set reminds me of an old, red Ford truck my dad had (I was probably 3 or 4 years old) and I can still remember how fun it seemed to sit in the back! The truck shape is timeless, and will be perfect for his birthday card in December, and probably a few Christmas cards too!

I hope you enjoy this very masculine card—it’s definitely a fun one, and we all love a little bit of adventure!

 

Thanks for stopping by! 😀

Stamping How To: Paper-Pieced Lacy Things Card

This gorgeous card was designed by Susan Cobb, our lead in-house designer. In her instructions, she shows you how to create a flawless, paper-pieced stamped focal using Hot Off The Press’ Lacy Things stamp set. Stamping on patterned paper provides an extra rich look, and the butterfly also has dimension provided by foam tape placed between the layers. I love that she chose black ink too—what a striking contrast! Who says lace has to be white?! 😀

 

Just a little inspiration for World Card Making Day which is tomorrow, October 3rd! Click on the link to learn more about how you can win a Paper WishesÂŽ gift certificate just by making a card!

 

042015project1

 

Susan’s Tip: Stamp the butterfly image on 3 different patterned papers, then cut out different portions of the butterfly from each paper. Foam tape the pieces together for a beautiful paper pieced effect.

 

Supplies:

 

Instructions:

Front: Place your blank card with the fold on the left. Ink the outer 1/4″ of the card with black ink all the way around the card front. Cut 4 7/8”x6 3/8” Roses & Lace green border paper with the roses corner at the top left corner. Glue it centered. Stamp the lace border on Roses & Lace dark pink textured paper with black ink. Trim around the edges and foam tape it across the card, even with the bottom. Stamp the small swirl/lace image on the upper right corner of the card.

Stamp “WISHING YOU A Beautiful DAY” on Roses & Lace light green textured paper. Place the Design Tool Kit #7 Beveled Label centered over the words and trace the shape with a pencil. Remove the template and cut out the shape. Ink the edges and mat on dark pink textured paper with 1/16” borders. Glue on the card, 1/8” from the right side and 1 1/4″ from the bottom.

Stamp the large butterfly image twice on Roses & Lace pink textured paper, and once each on Roses & Lace dark pink and light green textured papers. Trim around one pink butterfly (cut off the antennae), even with the edges of the image. Cut out the center portion of the light green butterfly including the body. Foam tape it centered on the pink butterfly. Trim around the center of the dark pink butterfly with body and foam tape on the light green area as shown. Finally, trim around the center of the second pink butterfly (with body) and foam tape in place. Position the butterfly angled on the upper left side of the card, overlapping the words label as shown, to check for spacing. Use the pencil to mark the paper just above the head of the butterfly. Clean your large butterfly stamp. Cover the image, except for the antennae, with cellophane tape or sticky notes. Ink the stamp, quickly remove the tape or sticky notes, then stamp the antennae with the base on the pencil mark. Glue the paper-pieced butterfly on the card, aligned with the stamped antennae. Repeat the stamping and paper piecing process for the small butterfly image, using pink paper for the base, light green for the center, and dark pink for the bottom center. Position the small butterfly overlapping the upper right edge of the words label.

Use 1/8” wide green grosgrain ribbon to tie a bow. Zot™ the bow on the lower left edge of the words label. Embellish the stamped images, label, and background paper with Silver Jewel Dazzles™.

 

 

Beautiful! I hope this has you feeling as inspired as I do! Click the image below for all the details about our World Card Making Day Challenge! I wish you all a beautiful and creative weekend! 🙂

Girlfriends Getaway Wrap Up + Photos!

gfgsetup-pan

 

Well friends, I’m happy to report that this year’s Girlfriends Getaway was a fabulous success! We had 167 attendees joining us from near and far for a full day of creating with Paulette. Many participants chose to extend their card making and scrapbooking into Sunday as well, making for a very memorable weekend!

 

gfg_4596

 

Our girlfriends created a total of 6 projects led by Paulette, with Gail stepping in to share some of the fun!

 

gfg_4607

gfg_4619

 

It was a wild and fun day filled with lots of freebies and giveaways! A delicious lunch was provided by Ebner’s Custom Meats, a family-owned, local establishment, and our girlfriends also enjoyed a build-your-own cheesecake station — a new addition at this year’s event!

 

shopgfg

 

Hot Off The Press brings all their latest products to Girlfriends so participants can get “extras” of anything they love—without having to pay for shipping! There are also lots of bargains to be found, with tables for “Dollar & Under Items,” “Gently Used Stamps,” and even Dollar Dazzles™!

Another highlight was the attendance of several Paper Wishes Message Board members. These women (wearing the pink shirts) create and communicate through our message boards, often daily, and finally were able to meet Paulette and each other in person! Very cool.

 

In addition to all the creativity, Girlfriends Getaway is also a family affair. Paulette’s husband, Mike, and son, Adam, were both there for Friday’s setup and to lend a hand on Saturday. This year Adam brought his massage chair, offering professional neck and arm massages.

 

Even little Penelope stopped by to help draw winners! Paulette shared with me that Penelope wanted to stay, even when presented with a “toy store” option—such star potential!

 

penelope

 

If you couldn’t attend Girlfriends this year, you can still be a part of the fun with your very own Girlfriends Getaway 2015 Kit! As I mentioned before, Paulette really does spend all year scouting out the best new products specifically with Girlfriends Getaway in mind. She also discovers new ways to use some of our favorites, and she shares all of this in her Girlfriends Getaway Kit which also includes Paulette’s DVD with step by step video instructions!

 

Supplies are limited—get yours now!

PW_15FALL.fillip-4010190.15.GFG-kit.pgf8

 

Overall, I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who attended (and helped with) this year’s event! It was such an amazing group of wonderfully creative people, and I’m already looking forward to next year!
