Easy To Make Foiled Christmas Card

Hello! Today and I am sharing how I created this easy to make Christmas Card. Have you started making your Christmas cards yet? If I do not start them now then I will never get them done.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

The first thing I did was tape off the edges of my card front piece with some painters tape and then sprayed some color mist onto a mat. Then laid the card front piece down into the color mist and removed the tape and let it dry. This created a fun colored square in the middle of my card front.
Next, I used some TCW9048 Hot Foil Gel 2oz with the TCW870 Fir Branch Stencil and a palette knife. Then let the Hot Foil Gel dry. Once it was dry I used a piece of gold Xyron Glaminator Transfer Foil and ran it through my Xyron Glaminator.

Tip: * Make sure to clean off your stencil with warm water right away after using the Hot Foil Gel before it dries. Otherwise, it is really difficult to remove from your stencil once it dries.

Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment with gold embossing powder and used some foam squares to pop it up on the front of my card. I added some sequins and matted my card front with some Rinea Gold Starstruck Foiled Paper and my card was complete.

Autumn Scrapbook Layout

All the leaves are changing colors on the trees around my house and starting to fall off and the kids love playing in the leaves.  This is actually an old photo of my daughter with some of her friends but thought it was perfect for an Autumn scrapbook layout.

I went with a simple background of white and just added a few sprays of some color spray and also flicked some color spray onto the background just to give it a little color. 


I then painted the Creative Embellishments Falling Leaves chipboard piece and the sentiment that came in the Creative Embellishments Autumn Leaves Set with some white Gesso. Then sprayed them with some mustard and olive green color spray and dried them with a heat tool. 


For the Creative Embellishments Fancy Rectangle Frame Set, I did the same thing but sprayed an orange color spray on it. The Creative Embellishments Acorn Clusters I did not paint with the Gesso, but I did spray them with some color spray. I just sprayed them onto the raw chipboard to give them a deeper and darker color.
I added some lace trim along the bottom of the photo and frame and some sequins, adhering everything down with Beacon Fabri Tac and that was it.

Cornucopia Thanksgiving Shaker Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a Cornucopia Thanksgiving shaker card. I have been making a lot of shaker cards lately, I think they are so much fun!


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.
Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I used several of the fruits and veggies from the Creative Embellishments Cornucopia Set 1 and Creative Embellishments Vegetables chipboard sets and painted each one with acrylic paints.



I also painted the Creative Embellishments Cornucopia Shaker with acrylic paint and adhered each layer together with a strong liquid adhesive. Before adding the plastic and final layer of the cornucopia, I added some sequins and a few of the smaller veggies into the shaker. I added some leaves behind the cornucopia on my card front and then adhered all the chipboard pieces on with a hot glue gun.
