Simple Deer Card

Hello, friends! Today I wanted to share a simple card with you!
 
Deer is a current trend going around in the crafting and home decor world. So I decided it was time to join in the fun!
 
 
Flipping around the DCWV Winter in the Woods stack, I came across this precious deer head image! I loved how simple it was and wanted to keep it that way! I cut out the pocket style design and added a little nose on the deer. I attached the layer to a foil-lined premade card (also DCWV). My whole goal was to create a simple card, but I felt that the card needed something else. so to finish off the card, I add a couple DCWV Mirrored Stars.

 
I opted not to include a sentiment, allowing this card to fit many different occasions!
 
Thank you for stopping today! Have a wonderful day!
Jessi
 
Supplies:
DCWV - Winter in the Woods
DCWV - Mirrored Star Embellishments
DCWV - Foiled-lined Card Base

Simple DCWV Gift Card Holders

I am so excited to be sitting down and creating with some new DCWV Holiday goodies! I love the colors and how they provide precut pieces to make you projects easier!

I don't know about you, but I am in the mist of wrapping present in my household. The items seem to always be gift cards. I don't like to present the card in a normal envelope (which sadly, I have done). Then the precut scalloped edge cardstock dropped in my hands and I knew exactly what I wanted to do! So bring out the ribbon on before you know it, you have a bundle of elegant gift card holders!

1) Measure and score lines to create the envelope (this one measures to be 3.5 inches tall). There was extra cardstock with these measurements, so just cut of the excess.
 
2) Using a fancy shape die, create the gift card matting with a solid (matching) cardstock. Cut slits into the diecut, allowing the card to slide into place.
 
3) Cut ribbon long enough to wrap and tie around the holder. Before you form the bow, slide on the precut tag. Tie bow and you are finished!
 
 4) Now repeat :)



You can mix and match the pieces to create a variety of gift card holders!
 
 
 

 Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have been inspired to create your own gift card holders!

Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and DCWV Blog Hop

 
 
 All week long we are partnering with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  for a Winter blog hop! I am excited to be a part of this fun hop, today! There are many prizes to be won so make sure you stop by both blogs and each DT blog each day! 
 
On to my project! I created this window-style card below, using the DCWV Winter in the Woods Stack.
 
 
To start off, I knew that I wanted to have snowflakes on my card. I used a snowflake punch to create the flakes. I covered each one with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glass Bead Glitter Gel.
 
 
Now it is time to create the layers of the card! I found this beautiful snowflake patterned paper (below) and colored it with a few strokes of the Metallic Mint Double Scoop Gelatos. I used a small piece of a baby wipe to blend the color around. 
 

I found a cute deer on one of the papers in the Winter in the Woods Stack. I decided to fussy-cut the image out. To add the effect of snow, I added Glitter Glass Bead Gel to the back and the head of the deer. Once the gel was dried, it was time to piece together the card.  To create the window, I used an oval diecut on the top layer of the card.

 
Don't forget to leave them some love; leave a comment on the DCWV and on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®  blog to be eligible to win this weeks prizes! Here at DCWV there will THREE prizes; $50.00 worth of scrapbooking supplies for each person! We will be announcing the winner Monday the 15th on Facebook so be sure you are following us over there!

Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas Day 7

Hello, friends! It is Jessi from Kissin' Krafts and I am excited to be back on the wonderful Trendy Twine design team! My project today is part of the Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas (Day 7).


These candy boxes make for a simple, yet perfect gift! They can be used for a variety of occasions, and of course, holiday gift giving! All you have to do is fill with a yummy candy and attach a fun tag and you are finished.

For this project, I stamped an festive image on white cardstock. Once the coloring was finished, the image is cut out and attached to the front of the tag.  To finish the project, a fun sentiment is stamped on the backside of the tag. The tag is attached to the candy box with a double shoelace tie of Cherry Limeade twine.

Cherry Limeade - Red & Lime Green - Christmas Bakers Twine

Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Swan Song Blog Hop

Welcome to my small part in the HUGE Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Swan Song hop! Isn't amazing to see all the friends and fans of the magazine in one place sharing their love! I wanted to share one new project, along with the my cards that have (or would have) been published in the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine.

If you have been following along with the hop, you should be arriving from Maureen's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning, please start on Jennifer McGuire's blog!

First up, as we in the US are bracing for winter, I figured it would be fitting to share a 'WARM' thank you card for this occasion. I have nothing but warm memories about the magazine and sad to see it gone.

 
I am more of a late bloomer to the publishing world! After a few rejections, I was close to givin up and then I got that 'happy e-mail' from Susan! Here is the first card I had ever had published!
 
(January 2014 - Stamp It)
 
Here are the other cards that  were picked up by PaperCrfts & Scrapbooking Magazine:
 
Jessica Pascarella Gallery Idol Top 20 Revealed!
(September 2014 - Gallery Idol Top 20) 

(Would have been March 2015)

(2014 WCMD Honorable Mention - Love Catergory- April 2015)
