Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas with Therm O Web

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

And happy December! Can you believe we are starting the last month of the year? I am already starting to feel that holiday panic setting in. That worry that I won’t get everything finished in time. Silly, because I always do. But right now, that to-do list is looming large. Anyone else with me on that?

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmassetAt least this year, I managed to start my Christmas cards early, which is pretty unheard of for me. Today I’m sharing a holiday gift set I made quite some time ago for Therm O Web, featuring my favorite chippy shabby way to use the iCraft Deco Foil sheets.

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmasset2As you all know by now, I love the distressed finish you get from applying the foil with the liquid glue. I added shiny red foil to the frame and label on my card and pillow box, and then embellished Santa’s suit with foil, too. Because we all know the holidays are about that bling.

audreypettit-thermoweb-photoplaypaper-merrychristmasset3
I die cut double-sided adhesive foam for the December 25th greeting for a more uniform foil coverage. And to dress up my gift set I pulled out lots of old favorites. Dies from Papertrey Ink and My Creative Time. A favorite old holiday Tim Holtz stamp and die set. Paper from Photo Play Paper’s debut release.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! My goal is to finish decorating my tree, and maybe get some shopping done. And I’m looking forward to Choux Choux Paper Art’s annual Visions of Sugar Plums blog hop, starting Sunday.

Easy Holiday Gifts with Therm O Web

Hi Crafty Friends!

Here we are at the last day of November already! Can you believe how quickly the time is going? If you’re like me,  then I’m sure many of you are looking for quick and easy holiday gift giving ideas right about now… and we’ve got lots of great ones for you this month on the Therm O Web blog. Today I have a super easy sweet treat idea to share with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar
I know everyone loves sweets at the holidays. And what sweeter, and easier, last minute gift idea than a simple hot chocolate mix packaged with love?

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar2
Jar gift ideas are so fun and easy, and there are so many different things that you can fill them with. I went with a simple hot cocoa mix, topped with white chocolate chips and crushed peppermint candies. Once you fill the jar, then all you need is a bit of ribbon, and a festive tag. Super easy.

audreypettit-thermoweb-sweetseasonsgreetingscocoajar3
I pulled out some well-loved older favorites for the tag…. Papertrey Ink’s Gingerbread Lane stamp set and Tag Sale #4 die. And of course my tag is dressed up with bright red deco foil for a bit of holiday shine. I’ve got the full tutorial for adding foil to your paper projects up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
And looking forward to this weekend…

Santa’s Toy Shop with Therm O Web & Echo Park

Hello, Crafty Friends!

Happy Monday, and happy start to Thanksgiving week here in the US. Of course with Thanksgiving so quickly approaching, it seems very official. The holiday season is truly upon us. The most magical season of all! I try to be mindful to count my blessings throughout the year, but this week, it always hits me hard. Because not only is this the season for giving thanks, this also is my birthday week! And so it hits me… how truly blessed I am. And how grateful I am for all of YOU! I hope that whatever you all do this week,  that you are blessed with the bounty and love of the holiday season, too!

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-santastoyshopcard
Last week, I got the chance to play with the adorable I Love Christmas collection from Echo Park for a special product match up on the Therm O Web blog. I made three holidays cards with the kit, one of which I shared last time. And today, I’m back with the second.

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-santastoyshopcard2
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I have a serious soft spot for gingers. They are just so darn adorable, and happen to be one of my favorite cookies to eat, too. So I simply couldn’t resist this sweet little sticker version, and used him as the jumping off point for today’s card.

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-santastoyshopcard3
To make sure my little guy popped off the page, I added a few accents to dress him up. The holly leaves came together on one sticker, but were easily cut apart to layer with a little twine bow tie. And enamel dot buttons add a bit of extra pizazz, too. I used some natural kraft in the background to coordinate with my ginger, and layered in a few candy stripe details. White ink rubbed onto the paper edges brings a touch of winter frost that I so love for the holidays.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful day!

P.S. – Looking ahead… this upcoming weekend is Shop Small Saturday. My AudOnes Prims Shop will have new additions, and some special deals, too! I hope that if you’re doing your holiday shopping this weekend, you’ll remember to Shop Small!

Warmest Holiday Wishes with Therm O Web & Echo Park

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

This week, the gang at Therm O Web is super excited to be joining up with our friends at Echo Park, sharing projects featuring Echo Park’s fabulous 12×12 paper kits and Therm O Web adhesives. With the rush of the holidays right around the corner, I chose the adorable I Love Christmas collection to play with, and made three cards. And today I’m sharing the first here with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-holidaywishescard
This collection has the most adorable elements cardstock stickers, which I used here to make a fun winter wonderland scene, complete with snowy hill, a little elf and bird, and a pretty holiday package.

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-holidaywishescard3

I mixed several of the patterned papers from the kit, and grounded it all with crisp black cardstock for sentiment and base. And then framed the scene in a die cut window embellished with bright red iCraft deco foil for some holiday shine.

audreypettit-thermoweb-echopark-holidaywishescard4
I love the chippy, distressed finish of applying the foil with the liquid adhesive, like you see here. I’ve got tips on achieving this look, along with several other I Love Christmas cards, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Keeping Warm with Therm O Web

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

It seems like once Halloween is over, time just has a way of gathering momentum and zipping by. The holidays will be here before we know it. And if you are already feeling short on time, and are looking for holiday gift giving ideas, then be sure to stop by the Therm O Web blog. All month long, the team has tons of quick, easy, last-minute, and do-able projects to share with you.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe
I don’t know about you, but that sweet little snowman face kinda melts my heart a bit. Love snowmen for the holidays, and all winter long, too. Such a fun way to add some cheer in the cold winter months. And better yet, this easy, no-sew project can be completed in under 15 minutes. A definitely plus when the rush of the holidays begin.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2
I tend to grab up wooden frames whenever I get the chance, and keep them on hand for last minute project ideas like this. They’re usually readily available at second-hand stores for just a few cents, or can be found unfinished at your big box craft stores for very little cost, too. Then just remove the glass and add your favorite papers and embellishments. This is the Snow Patrol collection by Simple Stories and sequins by 28 Lilac Lane, and an adorable Therm O Web fleece snowman.

audreypettit-thermoweb-snuggleupframe2

I added vintage buttons and a big carrot nose. A little hand-stitching for the mouth. Therm O Web Fabric Fuse tape easily keeps fabric, even thick fleece like this, in place. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Or, you can find this holiday cutie ready-to-go in my AudOnes Prims Holiday Shop, too!

Sizzix Tutorial- A Masculine Gift Set

Hi, Crafty Friends!

Today I have a Sizzix tutorial to share and a project idea for creating a masculine birthday gift set.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprint-makeawishset
My Dad has a late October birthday, and he happens to be a lover of candy corn, like I am. So I knew I wanted to put together a matching card and candy corn treat package set that was both masculine in design, and fall inspired. Perfect excuse to break out one of my all-time favorite Tim Holtz sets, Leaf Blueprints.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprint-makeawishset2
I think the blueprint style of this set works so well for masculine projects, and I love that you can change the feel of the season with this set by simply changing out the color palette. Since he has a fall birthday, I pulled out a variety of Distress inks to suit, and added in lots of natural kraft for a warm autumn look.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprint-makeawishset3
I’ve got the full tutorial to share, so let’s take a closer look.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprintmakeawishset-tut11. Stamp the leaf blueprint image onto watercolor paper using Potting Soil Archival Ink.

2. Place a Stitched Rectangle Framelits die onto the image, and die cut using this standard Sizzix die cutting sandwich for Thinlits and Framelits dies: Magnetic Platform, Standard Cutting Pad, paper, die (cutting side down), Standard Cutting Pad.

3. Dab Distress inks onto a non-stitch craft sheet and mix inks with a bit of water. Apply clean, clear water onto the watercolor paper around the image to help the color flow, and then drop the ink colors onto the paper.

4. Allow the watercolor to dry. Then spritz the paper with a Distress Sprayer to create water droplets. Allow to dry for a few seconds, then blot the paper with a towel.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprintmakeawishset-tut25. Stamp the leaf image again onto kraft cardstock using the Potting Soil Archival ink. Apply a bit of brown Distress ink onto the image using a mini ink blending tool. Then die cut the leaf using the partial leaf dies from the set.

6. Die cut both sections of the kraft leaf. Adhere one portion onto the watercolor panel. Save the second half for the treat packaging.

7. Stamp the leaf image again onto text print patterned paper. And die cut both halves.

8. Nest two Stitched Rectangle dies together to create a frame. Use the same size as you used for the leaf panel and the next size larger. Hold them together with a bit of washi tape, and die cut the frame from kraft cardstock. Adhere the text leaf print onto the watercolor image. Save the second half for the treat package.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprintmakeawishset-tut39. Emboss a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of kraft cardstock with the Diamonds embossing folder. Adhere to a top folding card base, and round the two bottom corners.

10. Swipe a Picket Fence Distress ink pad over the raised embossed areas and around the edge of the leaf panel. Add a strip of matching text-print paper to the bottom portion of the card.

11. Die cut the label from the leaf set from watercolor paper. Stamp sentiment in the brown ink. Edge with Distress ink and add a few splatters of ink color using a wet paintbrush.

12. Wrap twine around the bottom of the watercolor panel and tie into a bow on the left side. Adhere the panel to the card base using foam adhesive. Adhere the sentiment over the twine using additional foam adhesive. And finally, add a few enamel dots.

audreypettit-sizzix-leafblueprint-makeawishset
Use the leftover die cut leaf pieces to create a matching panel for the treat packaging. All of the remaining steps are the same, although I added my treat panel onto a Tim Holtz Postage Stamp Frame die for the base of the hang tag.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And huge thanks for all your sweet comments and support on the opening of my Holiday Shop! You guys are the BEST!

2016 Holiday Inspiration Series with Tim Holtz

Happy Monday, Friends!

Did you all see the fun news? Tim Holtz has just launched a month-long Holiday Inspiration Series on his blog, and I am so honored and excited to have the first project up! Throughout this special series, we hope to share lots of amazing new products from Tim’s new 2016 Holiday Release, and project ideas to jump start a whole season of holiday crafting and creativity.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset

For my project I have made a card and matching tag set featuring lots of fabulous goodies from Tim’s new holiday collection. I’ve used some new Tim Holtz Alterations dies and embossing folders, along with new holiday papers, glittery deco sheets, and Idea-ology ephemera bits to create an elegant and traditional holiday look with a bit of a vintage feel.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset2
I just love this new Enchanted Doves Alterations die. And since this is a Bigz die, that means you can die cut any number of surfaces, including the fuzzy fleece I used here. I really love how the soft fabric of the bird adds a whole new layer of texture and detail to the design. Makes you want to reach out and touch it.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset3
Isn’t the new Holiday Deco Paper beautiful? Adds an instant sense of glamor and sparkle that is always so welcome at the holidays.

audreypettit-timholtz-dec25thgiftset4
I really love the vintage nostalgic feel to this set, and the bits of holiday shine mixed with lots of natural rustic touches. But my favorite part is the little surprise element to this otherwise traditional design. The card is a spinner. Open it up, and the dove twirls around. A fun touch for whoever opens it. And looks kinda cool as a decor piece, too.

I hope you enjoyed this peek at the new Tim Holtz 2016 Holiday Collection! I’ve got the full step-by-step instructions for today’s project over on Tim’s blog, if you’d like to learn more. And be sure to stop back there often this month as the Holiday Inspiration Series continues.
