Christmas Tag


Joyful Christmas Tag

By Guest Blogger Margie Higuchi

November 2016

 

This is my last project as guest blogger for My Treasured Kutz, a line of detailed dies to use in your manual die cutting and embossing machine. Using Pine Bough and 3D Miniature GrandFlora Rose Flower, I created a sweet and dimensional Christmas Tag.
 
My inspiration was found in the pattern of my holiday themed paper, I cut them out as the focal point of the tag. Then I die-cut a combination of Pine Bough, and 3D Miniature Grand Flora Rose Flower to frame the focal point.



I first used Craft Power Tape and Pigment Powder Gold to make a three line border.




Then add the cut accents using E-Z Runner Permanent Strips and 3D Foam Squares. Next frame the bottom with Pine Bough and 3D Miniature GrandiFlora Rose Flower secure with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium. Tie a jingle bell and mini cookie cutter together with Girlie Grunge Twine and tie to the organza bow to finish.
 

Supplies:
 
My Treasured Kutz: Pine Bough3D Miniature GrandiFlora Rose Flower and Quilling Tool

Thanksgiving Wreath


Pine Bough Thanksgiving Wreath Card

By Guest Blogger Margie Higuchi

November 2016

 

I am excited to share another project as guest blogger for My Treasured Kutz, a line of detailed dies to use in your manual die cutting and embossing machine. Using Pine Bough and 3D Miniature Posie Flower, I wanted to create a dimensional wreath with sweet flower accents as a Thanksgiving card.
 
After laying out the design, I adhered each long spine of the bough with Dual Tip Pen on a 4⅜ x 4⅜" panel. This is base and I will add on another layer of bough for dimension.

 

Adhere the panel with Crafty Foam Tape on top of your 6 x 6" card base (with a 5⅛ x 5⅛" card panel on top).

Roll three 3D Miniature Posie Flower using the quilling tool and adhere with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium. Tie an organza bow and secure on the bottom of wreath with adhesive dots. Then add the Posie Flowers with the same adhesive dots.
Supplies:
My Treasured Kutz: Pine Bough, 3D Miniature Posie Flower and Quilling Tool
Textured Ribbons: Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®
Paper: Graphic 45 (Safari Adventures Collection)
Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® (E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser, Crafty Foam Tape, Home Hobby Dual Tip Glue Pen and Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium)
 
I hope I inspired you all with my second tutorial! Stay tuned for another project that has a sweet twist to the holiday season.

Fall is Here Card
                                       By Guest Blogger Margie Higuchi
                                                     November 2016
 
I am thrilled to be guest blogger for My Treasured Kutz, a line of detailed dies to use in your manual die cutting and embossing machine. Using the 3D Baby PineCone and Pine Bough, I created a fall themed card with lots of dimension and texture.
 

 
Starting with the background, I used Girlie Grunge Tissue Tape in Oak to place diagonally across my card base. Then used my embossing folder to create texture. It turned out really cool!

 
For my embellishment, I die-cut and then rolled two 3D Baby PineCone using a quilling tool. Adhere the pine cone base with Dodz Adhesives Dots Medium and pull the tip to make my pine cone shape.
    
 Next I die-cut Pine Bough from various colors of green paper for interest and dimension.
 
 
I cut three rectangles in varying sizes for a layered look and adhered with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and 3D Foam Squares. Note I stamped the smallest rectangle with a sentiment first. I placed two Pine Bough on each side with two 3D Baby Pine Cone on top and adhered with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium. To finish the look, I added a gold sequin with Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini and it's ready to give!
 
Here’s another look at the finished project…
