Gate Fold Christmas Doors

Here is a fun way to use Eyelet Outlet's new wreath brad.

Create a gate fold card from a piece of cardstock that measures 5.5 x 8.25.

Score along the long edge 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".

Fold each side to meet in center.

Next...decorate as desired.

I cut out panels and embossed them with a wood grain.

Next I sponged the edges to give definition.

I hand made the banner...and again, sponged the edges.

The door handles are made from 8mm pewter brads.

Simply open the prongs flat and use a Glue Dot ® to adhere them to the card front where

door handles would be. 

Come to our next tradeshow to check out the new holiday brads...

as well as washi, bling, and paper flowers!

Haunted Mash Up!

Here, I created a Haunted Mash Up using The Project Bin's two new fall sets!

By adding die cuts and googlie eyes,
this pumpkin becomes a jack o lantern! 
I mismatched the eyes to mimic the Ghostie.
I love how this turned out and I am ALMOST ready to decorate for the fall...but not quite yet! 

Thanks for popping by for this mash up.

Designer Ghostie!

Did you see The Project Bin 's new set?

Cool Ghoul will be very fashionable this fall.
Just check out the duds on that ghost! A bit of Eyelet Outlet embellies is a nice touch too!

The 2nd card uses # bff from The Proejct Bin too...Don't you love the floating banners. A bit ghost like too! haha Glue Dots ® make it easier!


What's shakin!

What's shakin' bacon? 
What are your plans for this Labor Day in the USA?

Find it all on our website: Eyelet Outlet.

Cool Ghoul.

For the F4A445 challenge at Splitcoatstampers...
use your own handwriting.
The Ghosts are from The Project Bin's new set: Cool Ghoul!

The inside reads:  You can't feel it, but it's there!

I found the sentiment online...such a fun one for loved ones who live very far away!


Two types!

Did you know that Eyelet Outlet has two types of phones?
A vintage styled phone (from our Telephone & Fan brad set) as shown here with our stamp set, 
called Fan Set. We also have an "Iphone" brad from our Selfie brad set.

Love all the styles and finishes from Eyelet Outlet!
Glue Dot ® Gluetape really keeps these layers flat and smooth! 

Glue Dots ® and Whimsy Hop!!

Welcome to the Glue Dots ® & Whimsy Stamps hop!
You should have arrived from Bev's blog.
If not, start at the Glue Dots ® Blog for a full hop of inspiration and fun and PRIZES!!

Whimsy Stamps and Glue Dots Inspirations Hop Join us from August 27h through August 31st for a fun joint blog hop between Whimsy Stamps and Glue Dots. Our teams will be sharing lots of beautiful projects featuring products from both of these companies. And we will have lots of prizes hidden along the hop as well as a grand prize valued at $100!

The Creative Makers received an amazing variety of products and stamps from Whimsy stamps.
They were so fun to use, especially the dies. I took some time to play around with them to see just how these window die sets worked. It's all about the negative space...as you can see by my first card!

Card makers, get some Glue Dots ® GlueTape! 
It comes in a small dispenser which makes it convenient to use...and keeps your layers flat for mailing purposes!

Here, the sun like shape is a nice splash of color...
along with Whimsy's trendy enamel dots!
Supplies used:
Glue Dots ®: Gluetape, Mini Glue Dots ® (to make sure those enamels are secure!)

The Stitched Border Dies Trio has a stitched line die...that doesn't cut, only perforates.
Makes a great look to a simple card.

This image is Whimsy's Bunny with Cupcake stamp.
It's large..with a lot of space to watercolor in for those who enjoy coloring!

Glue Dots 1" Glue Lines ® are a great product to keep your watercolor paper flat...
and your project streamlined....no mess!

Sometimes, you need to pop things up to make a statement!

Here Pop Up Relief Glue Dots ® were used to prop up Whimsy's "Sweet and Salty" mermaid and sentiment.  Card makers and scrappers will love how these dots give just a little definition without the bulk of foam dimensionals.

The Card Boarder Window Die set was fun to use...love those stitched edging.
Just a bit of finesse...but still uncluttered.
The larger rectangle shape of this die set was used to create a writing panel for the inside of the card.

Did you know that Whimsy has stencils too?  Try using Removable Glue Dots ® to anchor your stencil while you dab color on.  This will give you "an extra hand" while you are working that panel or area...and then they can be easily removed! A win-win situation!

Supplies used:
Glue Dots ® GlueTape, Mini and Micro dots, Pop Up Relief, Removeable
