November Release Sneak Peek #1

Hi, friends!

It's that time again! It's Sneak Peek time, and I'm way excited to give you the first look at some of our new stamps and dies that will debut on Nov. 1st at Technique Tuesday! 

New-Blog-Graphics-Sneak-Peeks-day-1

Here in Oregon, the leaves are falling off the trees, the nights are feeling chillier and the stores have been putting out Christmas decorations, warmer clothes and space heaters. Winter is definitely coming! Today's sneak peeks feature a new stamp set that definitely has a toasty Winter feeling about it. 

November-2018-Sneak-Peek4FB

This new stamp set features artwork that screams Winter. There's a puffy jacket, a fuzzy scarf, a knitted glove and sock, a winter hat and the cutest snow boot you've ever seen. If that's not enough, there's also some snowflakes and lovely snowflake border. Whether you are a card maker or scrapbooker, you are going to love stamping these items on your Winter-themed paper crafted projects.

The stamp set also features some fun sentiment stamps look great on cards and scrapbook pages! I, myself, am particularly fond of the phrase in the second peek. It's a fun one... don't you agree?

PS. This blog has been hopping this week with good stuff! Did you catch Julie's post on Tuesday? She put together a super tutorial with tips for using watercolor markers to color in the Luscious Grapes stamps. The results are stunning! And Bev had a fabulous post with tips for putting together some great cards with the Bow on the Border die. Don't miss it!



Turkey & Pie Cards... oh my!

Hi, everyone! 

Lean in real close. I truly love spending Thanksgiving with my family and friends. There's nothing like spending the day doing nothing but catching up with each other. But I do have a second favorite part of the day. What's that you ask? It's the turkey and pie, of course! It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without these delicious foods!


Do you plan on working on some Fall-themed scrapbook pages and Thanksgiving-inspired cards? Meet the Turkey & Pie crafting dies. You can use this set of dies to make die-cut turkeys, pies, apples and pears for all your paper crafting and memory keeping projects. Imagine all the cute accents you can make with them! And here's the best part... they are calorie-free! If only Thanksgiving really was calorie-free too! 

I hope you enjoyed Bev's quick video about the dies. And here are some cool projects created with the dies that I hope will inspire you too!  


Technique-Tuesday-Happy-Thanksgiving-

Wow! This card by Dana Joy is the perfect card to send a loved one that you are missing over the holidays. Her sweet scene looks just like an actual dinner table. And the sentiment stamped with Happy Thanksgiving stamp set is the perfect touch! Stop by Dana's blog to learn how you can make a card like her's. 


GivingThanksFoodCard-teri

This card by Teri uses in the dies in a slightly different way. Teri left the outer frames of the die-cuts white and then added color to only the inner pieces. How did she add the color? Simple. She used markers. Like Dana, she too completed her card with a sentiment from the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set


Are you a Fresh Cut Studio auto-ship member? We shipped the Turkey & Pie crafting dies to you last week. We'll start shipping these new dies to everyone else this week!

We'd love to see what you are creating with these new dies. Share your projects with us on Facebook or Instagram so we can leave you a little love. Also be sure use the #TechniqueTuesday hashtag.

Add a Handmade Touch to Your Thanksgiving Table

Hi, friends!

Teri here today. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays!

When I was right out of college, I moved to a town several hundred miles from my family. I made several wonderful friends, who would invite me to their homes every Thanksgiving. The day was always so fun and resulted in memories I will remember forever. 

Something I always loved was how my friends would add a personal touch to their Thanksgiving table with decorations, like place cards.  The Thanksgiving-inspired images and words in the Happy Thanksgiving stamp set make it the perfect tool for making cards like these.

ThanksgivingPlacecards-teri
ThanksgivingPlacecards-teri

Start by cutting several 3 1/2" x 2" panels of white cardstock. 

Stamp an image and a few words on each panel. You could use the same words and images on each panel or you could mix it and use a variety of images and sentiments. I went with a variety!

PlacecardsBlogPostStep1-teri
PlacecardsBlogPostStep2-teriUse markers or pencils to add a little color to the images. If you are using markers, be sure to use an ink that will not bleed when you add color to your stamped images. I like to use Memento ink pads when I color with alcohol-based markers but you may find an ink you prefer instead.

PlacecardsBlogPostStep3-teriNow you are going to want to create the base for your place cards. Cut several 4" x 4" panels of cardstock. I wanted my place cards to feel Fall'ish so I used kraft cardstock. Browns, oranges and, even, greens would work well too! Fold your panels in half. Adhere your stamped panels onto them. 

PlacecardsBlogPostStep5-teriComplete your place cards by adding a little twine or ribbon to each one. Not glitzy enough for your tastes? Consider adding some gems or sequins to them as well. 

Use your place cards on your Thanksgiving table. Place them on each dinner plate or set them randomly on the table in between the dishes of food. 

I hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial. Looking for more handmade ideas for Thanksgiving? Check out this video from Bev. You'll learn about making a Gratitude Jar, a Thankful mini scrapbook and other Fall-themed projects! 

(Can't see the video? You'll find it right here on our YouTube Channel.)

See you again soon,
