Holiday Cards - Assembly Line Card Making with Club Scrap!

Create a colorful Holiday inspired card set with Club Scrap's Idea Deck Vol. 5 - available for download - Cards (Hearts and Diamonds) and Page (Spades and Clubs) formulas on their Hybrid Digital store. 


Purchase and download the instructions and let's get started. Tip: I upload all of my PDFs to an iPad and keep them stored in my iBooks app. 


Gather the papers. I chose 2 each of Trattoria Red, Spring Chorus Dk. Green, and White papers from my stash. Trim each of the papers following the detailed cutting instructions. Separate into panels, strips, and card bases.


Score and fold all of the card bases. By doubling the papers I was able to create twelve cards instead of six. 


Sort the parts and pieces according to the sketch designs on the instructions.


Embellish, emboss, and die cut to give your cards flair!



Let's take a look at the completed cards.

Stipple Misted Scandinavian Holiday Reindeer Tag - Club Scrap

I love making altered tags!

Stipple Misted Scandinavian Holiday Reindeer Tag #clubscrap #stipplemists #ghostedstencil #stencil #mask #reindeer #tags

After teaching my Stipple Mists workshop at the 2018 October Club Scrap Retreat this fall, I had so many sample art orphans left over.



I thought it would be fun to create a holiday-inspired tag with one of the pieces.

Stamp the Scandinavian Holiday reindeer in Earth and the circular snowflake in Leaf Hybrid Inks onto white paper. Adhere a thin strip of glitter washi tape over the neck, add details with colored pencils, markers, and Liquid Platinum Pearls. Fussy cut the reindeer with scissors and the circle with a punch.

Add snowflakes to the Stipple Mists Leaf tag with Spruce Ink.

Stamp the sentiment with Permanent Jet Black Ink and layer with a brown paper panel.

Complete the tag with baker's twine and a red sheer ribbon bow.

Banner Card with Stipple Mist Card Scraps!

Several days ago I share a dragonfly masked card created with Stipple Mists.

After cropping the layered mats I was left with several scrap strips of varying lengths and widths.

This paper is so beautifully textured so I set out to create a second card with the scraps.

Trim each strip with scissors to create banners. Adhere the banners to a black panel.

Stipple Mists Masking Stencil Resist Card - Club Scrap

Create a panel with lots of texture and depth with a masking stencil and Club Scrap's new Stipple Mists. These richly pigmented sprays are sold in three sets.

Stipple Mists Masking Stencil Resist Card #dragonfly #stencil #maskingstencil #clubscrap #mists #resists


Set 1 - Leaf Greem, Sunflower, Cherry and Indigo


Set 2 - Burnt Umber, Cantaloupe, Lavender, and Lagoon


Set 3 - Slate and Opaque White


Mist a masking stencil (Bugs 2013) with water and lay it face down onto a 4x6" mixed media panel. Place the panel in a spray tray (aka empty Club Scrap pizza box) and spritz lightly with Lagoon mist. The water creates a resist to the Stipple Mist. Allow the panel to dry completely before moving onto the next step.

Reposition the stencil over the dragonfly image. Spray with Leaf Green Mist.

November 2018 NBUS Challenge - Club Scrap

NBUS (Never Before Used Stamps/Stencils) Challenge hostess, Pam B., on the Club Scrap Chat group asked us to feature animals/creatures in our artwork. 

1118 NBUS Challenge Card #inks #fish #distressoxides #clubscrap

I chose an Artifacts (2008) wood mount sentiment stamp and created a background with Club Scrap and Distress Oxide inks paired with papers from Serengeti (2007). The Brown card base is from Gone Wild (2018).

Here are the steps to create this card.

Swipe CS Hybrid Ocean ink directly from the pad onto the textured Serengeti Green panel.


Sprinkle the panel with clear embossing powder wiping off some areas to create an uneven texture. Heat set to melt.



Add Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink randomly to the panel and spritz with water to activate the color.



Run the Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink pad over the entire surface of the panel and spritz with water.


Layer the finished panel onto a Serengeti Lt. Blue panel and adhere to the Gone Wild Brown card base. Lay two pieces of Sea Breeze Wave Washi Tape on a strip of white paper. Layer with a Teal border strip. 

1118 NBUS Challenge Card #inks #fish #distressoxides #clubscrap

Stamp the fish sentiment onto a Brown panel with Cracked Pistachio Oxide ink and layer onto a Teal mat. Adhere the sentiment over the washi tape border with dimensional foam squares. Finish the card with several Lagoon Teal Jewel Stickers.

Let's take a look at the finished 5x7" card.
