Home for the Holidays With i-crafter

Woohoo! It’s time for the new release from i-crafter, and this one is HUGE! There are a ton of gorgeous new dies, perfect for winter and Christmas, but let’s not skip over autumn and Thanksgiving. There are some fun new stamps and dies that will help you decorate not only your fall cards, but your home too! Let me show you some…

As the seasons change, I love changing the sentiments and decorating my letter board. For Thanksgiving, my board is decorated with an adorable little banner. To spell out HOME, I cut the letters and house from the new Tiny Home 3D die set. The letters H, M, and E are designed to just fold in half, so you can quickly string up your banner. The house cuts out in a single piece, and is very easy to fold up. For a fun touch, I added a few tassels from the Paper Orb set. The die cuts out longer tassel pieces; I trimmed them down to match the height of the letters. I love this! And my family does too. They’ve all been playing with the cute little house already. 

With the current state of the world, I’m not sure who will actually be coming to Thanksgiving dinner this year. (Normally, we cook for 20+ people.) So I want to send cards to the people who won’t be joining us. I made a pair of flip cards, using double-sided pattern paper and the Dashed Circle Flip Card die set. On one card, I created my own background by stamping images from the Leaves Are Falling set with white ink. For both cards, I embossed Thankful Sentiments and added a Tiny Home to the focal circle.

I’ve got a few more pictures of the cards. Don’t you just love the tiny houses? They remind me of Monopoly® pieces! 

To give myself an area to sign the card, I glued a second white circle behind the circle on front. Lining it up was simple. Just apply glue to the back of the white circle, then lay it face down on the back of the yellow circle and close the card. It will end up neatly hidden. 

Notice that the roof of each house is embossed in gold too? It was easy to color the tops with a Versamarker, while the embossing supplies were already out. A few gold gems add even more sparkle to the cards. 

Isn’t the flip fold neat? I love fun folds like this. And the die set makes it so easy. Lucky for me, there are several different styles of flip fold die sets in i-crafter’s lineup! 

Alright my friend, I’m off to treat myself to a PSL and get ready for fall. Would you like to see all of the goodies in this release? Check out Lynda’s new video! I love the samples she’s sharing, and the peeks into her sketchbook. It’s so neat to get a look behind the scenes. If you are a fan of interactive cards, and DIY home decor, you’ll want to see too!

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be back soon with more fun cards to share. I think I have my voiceover issue solved, so be on the lookout for a bunch of videos! (Maybe I’ll even get up the nerve to go live again.)
