Coffee Cards with Xyron and Maya Road

xyronmayaroadgraphic

Hello crafters and stampers! Today the Xyron design team is teaming up with the amazing Maya Road design team. If you haven’t checked the past posts by my fellow DT members, they have made some wonderful projects that I was “ooh-ing” and “ahh-ing” the last few days.

I am also happy to share that everyday during the blog hop Xyron will be giving away a “sparkly” X sticker maker. Who doesn’t love a sticker maker, right? And best of all it’s sparkly!!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on the Maya Road projects that Xyron had shared on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/xyroninc during the hop and Xyron will announce the winner the following morning.

Maya Road is also giving away a $15 gift certificate to their shop. Here’s a link to the Maya Road’s blog for full details: http://www.mayaroad.typepad.com

For my projects, I am showcasing the Enjoy Coffee Die bundle and I made I gift tag and two cards. The tag and the first card did not have any stamping since the die bundle is full of cute dies. I die-cut them all with my Neenah 100 lb. card stock and my patterned paper.

For the gift tag, I wanted to create a shaker tag and decided to use my exacto-knife to cut out the middle portion of the die-cut, adhered the acetate with my Xyron mega runner adhesive, added the foam and used my espresso mix sequins for my shaker elements from Kat Scrappiness.  It turned out really cute!

For my first card, I wanted it to look like the coffee is sitting on top of the table with the little spoon. I used a die from my stash to die-cut the white piece twice. I then used my embossing folder to emboss the first piece, making it look like a lacy, tablecloth. I also used my Xyron creative station to make my own foam adhesive with fun foam. I wanted to give the “tablecloth” a little dimension. I then used my Xyron mega tape runner to adhere everything to my front panel. Here are the step-by-step photos:

For my second card, I used some cute patterned paper and a stamp from my stash. To finish off the design, I used some vellum to die-cut my leafy swirls. I also used my X sticker maker to adhere a vellum bow to the spoon. The sticker maker is the best tool to have when adhering vellum on your projects.  This card will have a Starbuck’s gift card inside.

Here is the second card:

There’s No Otter Like You

I finally had some down-time this week and was able to play with my Otterly Love You stamp set and dies by MFT Stamps.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock using my Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink pad.   I colored the images in with my Copic markers. I wanted to achieve soft coloring on my Otters and I used my E40 and E41 markers, highlighting their cheeks with R00.

I die-cut my front window frame panel using a die from my stash, and die-cut the blue vellum paper to achieve the look of water.

I used my clouds border die to die-cut the clouds using Inkadinkado masking paper, with my broken china distress ink to achieve the look of clouds on the front panel.

I finished off the design by adding the light blue coral from another stamp set. I hope you like my card today and got inspired.  I have also listed and linked the supplies I have used.  Have a great weekend!

Lawn Fawn and Xyron – Meow You Doin’

Hello my crafty friends. I am so happy to share this blog post today. Xyron is collaborating with Lawn Fawn and the Xyron design team will be sharing projects showcasing Lawn Fawn products (from March 27 to 31, 2017).  We’re also having a giveaway to celebrate! Just leave a comment on any (or all) of the Lawn Fawn projects we share on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/xyroninc/) all week long and someone is going to win a $50 prize pack – a $25 LF gift certificate and a Xyron Mega Runner!

If you have been following me for a while, you know I LOVE all things LAWN FAWN. I have been a huge fan for years!  Please check out the new Lawn Fawn products at www.lawnfawn.com or for details about this hop, visit the Lawn Fawn blog at: http://lawnfawn.blogspot.com/.

I have a birthday pop-up box for you today and a process video below for Meow You Doin’  card, showcasing the Meow You Doin’ stamp set and dies, 6×6 Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pad, and a lot of other Lawn Fawn products that I have from my stash.

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I die-cut the pop-up box using a light blue card stock. I also die-cut the square boxes using the dies with the rainbow paper pad, and used my grassy hills border dies to die-cut the grass for my scene.

Before I assembled the box, I stamped some clouds and the sun on a white square piece of card stock. I assembled the box and started decorating it with the rest of my die-cut pieces.

I stamped the script “happy” and die-cut the piece with its coordinating die. I used my Xyron sticker maker to adhere it to the front flap of my card.   I love using the sticker maker for this type of project because it really makes my life easier and the die-cut piece is perfectly adhered to the card.

I started out by stamping my bear image (Gerda Steiner Warm Fuzzies stamp set)  using my stamping tool with memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored my image in with my Copic markers, then used my precision cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the image.

Using the largest of the Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle dies, I die-cut my front panel with the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar 6 X 6 paper pad. I also created the half-circle window using a die from my stash.

To finish off my design, I die-cut the trees, stamped my sentiment on the banner, and adhered them all to the card. For my final touch, I used my new favorite, Crystal Nuvo Drops in Dandelion. Here is my card:

Teresa Collins Wanderlust Collection and Signature Essentials with Xyron

I am so excited to share with you today’s post. The Xyron design team is collaborating with the amazing Teresa Collins and we are showcasing the new products that will be available in the market soon, as well as her “Wanderlust” collection.  If you would like to check out Teresa Collins products, here is the link to her shop: http://www.teresacollinsstudio.com/products/

I travel a lot and earlier this month, I was able to meet with my side of the family to celebrate my Mother’s 80th birthday. We decided to travel to Hong Kong. My siblings and I had a blast. We went to Disney to be kids again. We had so much fun I had to do a layout with Teresa Collins Wanderlust collection to celebrate these moments. I don’t normally post personal photos on social media but this is a bit special to me.  I love my siblings and I am so thankful that we get to see each other often even though we live so far apart.

I started out by playing with my layout, taking photos here and there. I must have taken about 7 photo layouts and decided to go for the design that you see below.   I used my Xyron Creative Station and the Teresa Collins Mega Tape Runner to adhere all of my photos and accessories that I needed for the layout.  They are acid and lignin free and perfect to use for your precious scrapbook pages.  Here are the supplies I have used:

Here’s my layout:

Of course the new Teresa Collins Capture Life stamp set with the signature essentials had me thinking that they were perfect for my planner. Here are the products that I have used:

Before I decorated my planner, I wanted to create some beautiful planner paper clips with the Studio Gold essentials. Here’s how I made the paper clip. I chose some beautiful ribbons that will perfectly match the clips (pink and gold). Cut them about 7 inches and looped it through the paperclips, and secured it with hot glue. Here’s what it looks like:

This is how I decorated my planner during my Hong Kong trip .

I hope you all got inspired today. Incidentally, the new Xyron/Teresa Collins adhesives will be available in the market soon so please stay tuned. They are amazing!

Thanks for stopping by and have  an amazing day!
