Card Week: Guest Designer Betsy Veldman

Happy Friday friends! We’re closing off Card Week with a special guest designer, Betsy Veldman! Betsy is a wife, a SAHM to three super kids and is addicted to her paper and scissors. She loves scrapbooking and papercrafting of all kinds and is an expert cardmaker and stamper. We’re thrilled to have her!

Betsy had the chance to play around with the Frame Punch Board and some elements from the Pebbles Girl Squad collection. Check out the beautiful card she created. We love all the yummy layers!

Here’s what Betsy has to say about her card:

“The Girl Squad collection is filled with my favorite colors…it’s so fun and happy!  The Frame Punch board is an amazing (yet simple!) tool.  I was impressed with how quick and easy it was to make frames of all sizes.  I cut three frames from the Girl Squad patterned papers, starting with the same overall rectangle size, and just changing the width of the frame.  I also cut the same size frames from plain cardstock — two of each size, then layered everything to create lots of dimension!  I sandwiched some diecuts between the layers, and used one of the sentiment diecuts inside the smallest frame.  For a fun finishing touch, I used the awesome striped washi tape from the Girl Squad collection around the edges of my stack of frames!”

Thanks for joining us for Card Week! We hope you enjoy World Card Making Day tomorrow, and that you get the chance to create some beautiful cards.

Card Week: Clear Cut Punch Halloween Card

Hello crafty friends! It’s Aly here today sharing some card inspiration. I love making handmade cards and sharing them with friends. I collect them in baskets and then pull one out whenever I have the need. It adds that extra special touch when I need to share something with a friend or loved one. I also love how helpful We R tools are for cards. They make the creative process faster and more fun!

Check out this festive Halloween card I made using the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection, the new Clear Cut Circle Punch, and some of my other favorite tools!

Clear Cut Punch Halloween Card by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I started by trimming my card layers, and trimming and scoring my card base with the Dial Trimmer. It’s so convenient to have multiple blades in one tool!

Next I used the Circle Clear Cut Punch to create a shaker pocket window on my card. Then I punched out a 3×4 inch frame with the Frame Punch Board and placed it around the shaker pocket.

I added some sequins and acrylic shapes to a 2×2 pocket from the FUSEables card kit, and then sealed it shut with the Photo Sleeve Fuse.

I added a stitched border around the shaker window with my Stitch Happy and some Gold Metallic Thread. Tip: to sew the circle border I traced it lightly with a pencil first, and then sewed it by rotating the handwheel to control the speed.

Finally, I assembled and embellished my card with a few stickers and die cuts. I tied some Gold Metallic Stitch Happy Thread around the sentiment to add emphasis.

What I love about the new Clear Cut Punches is that you can punch anywhere on your paper. I’m excited to try this technique with the other shape punches! Thanks for joining me today, and happy cardmaking friends!

Card Week: Bright and Beautiful Card Techniques

Hello WRMK fans and welcome back to the blog. It’s Chantalle with you today and I’d like to share some cards I have created with the help of clever WeR Punch Boards, LetterPress Kit and the fantastic new Dial Trimmer.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This card uses beautiful Bazzill Premium Cardstock in Rose Quartz. The pack comes with four different prints, one being a soft ombré, which suited my card idea perfectly. It’s been layered up with some Amy Tangerine On a Whim #378746 Chipboard Stickers and some hand cut elements from On a Whim papers.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
The cardstock has been de-bossed in a floral print with hot pink magenta pigment ink. I will admit to having a bit of a crush on this letterpress technique! This was my first time experimenting with Letterpress, which comes in a very handy Starter Kit and includes everything you need to get started. *Note:  You will need a tool like the Evolution Advanced to be able to create a de-bossed effect.

Right at the bottom of this pile of embellishments, are some pretty On a Whim Washi tapes. I love their tropical vibes! I’ve also used my new Washi Tape Chomper to create the perfect pennant shape. This clever little tool is so easy to use – simple measure the size tape you have, align the tape and then press to cut the shape.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

Here is an image of the Letterpress just before it’s rolled through the Evolution Advanced. I adhered the plate to the base, then inked it up, aligned the paper and then rolled it through the Evolution.

Letterpress Kit and Evolution Advanced by We R Memory Keepers

This is a card I created using the same ‘Hello’ plate, combined with the word ‘sunshine’ (both included in the starter kit). I gave some Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock a light watercolour wash and then inked up the plates with yellow pigment ink and debossed it.

The sunny brights give this card a very happy vibe!

This next card is very simple in it’s composition.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve used my Dial Trimmer to trim some thin strips of patterned paper, having fun with the different edge finishes!

I laid all the strips up, adhering them to the front of my card, then trimmed off the excess with my Supreme Ruler.

Dial Trimmer and Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

The beveled and scalloped edges have a relaxed feel to them and the strips co-ordinate nicely with the fun On a Whim Chipboard Stickers which I have used to add my greeting.

Handmade Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers
My final card turned out so fun and I’m really excited to share it with you!

It’s a self contained card and envelope in one, which has a perforated area which, when pulled back, reveals a greeting.

Dial Trimmer by We R Memory Keepers

To start, I used my Envelope Punch Board to create an envelope for a 4×6 landscape card. This punch board is a firm favourite of mine! Once I had measured and trimmed my paper, I went about creating the envelope, but didn’t seal it. Instead, I used my ruler to draw two lines, in the centre of the front of the card, about an inch and a half apart.

I then used the perforated blade on the Dial Trimmer over the lines I had drawn.

Envelope Punch Board, Dial Trimmer, and Supreme Ruler by We R Memory Keepers

Next I created the little postcard for inside the envelope. I typed up a message on my Typecast Typewriter  and embellished the striped paper with some On a Whim clear and chipboard stickers.

I placed the card, face-down onto the prepared envelope sheet and folded it up, adhering it shut.

The final step, was creating a little tab so the recipient would know to pull open the perforated area. I used my Tab Punch Board to create a ‘small’ side tab and then, used a blade to very carefully cut a small slit on the far right hand side of the perfed section. I slid the tab inside, making sure it was well adhered, so it wouldn’t come off when in use.

The moment of truth…. Success!

I’m so happy with how this card turned out – such a fun surprise card, thanks to my Dial Trimmer!

Card Week: Frame Punch Board Halloween Card

Hey We R Memory Keepers friends and fans, Becki here to share with you an adorable Halloween card that I created with two of my favorite We R Memory Keeper tools, the Dial Trimmer and the Frame Punch Board.

Halloween Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The moment I started playing with the dial trimmer I loved the scalloped blade. I used the scalloped blade on several strips of patterned paper from the Pebbles Midnight Haunting collection.

Halloween Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Each strip of patterned paper has a scallop along the bottom edge of the strip. The scalloped strip was added with the scallop blade on the dial trimmer. After I had the scalloped strips cut, I used the Frame Punch Board to cut a four inch frame out of a black piece of patterned paper from the same Midnight Haunting Collection. Using a strong liquid adhesive, I layered the strips and adhered them to the back of the frame. Once the strops were in place, I ruffled the scalloped edges slightly to create a little bit of dimension and to make the scallops more noticeable.

Halloween Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Because I wanted the scalloped strips to stand out, I kept the embellishment to a minimum. I adhered a chipboard sentiment and a ghost die cut in the center of the frame with a strong liquid adhesive. Then, to finish things off, I added a few puffy stickers.

Halloween Card by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

The card base for this card is created from patterned paper. The card front is five inches square with rounded corners. It was so easy to round the corners of this card with the Frame Punch Board.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I can’t wait to share this card AND make more of them using the same design. Thank you for stopping by the We R Memory Keepers blog. I’ll see you again soon!

Card Week: 123 Punch Board Card

Hello friends, and happy Monday! This Saturday, Oct. 7th, is World Cardmaking Day. To celebrate the wonderful world of handmade cards, our designers have created some amazing card inspiration for you each day this week. We’ll also have a special guest designer on Friday, so be sure to check in here on the blog each day this week. First up is Kimberly with a darling card she made with the 123 Punch Board.

 

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card. Shocking, I know. I truly love making cards and this week is leading up to World Card Making Day! One of the tools I almost always grab when making a card is the We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board! Its several tools in one, and today I found a new and cool use for it! Yes!!

123 Punch Board Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

First of all, the 123 Punch Board makes bows. Who doesn’t love a bow? I have found that the XS size bow works perfect on cards.

123 Punch Board Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The instructions for creating a bow are printed directly on the 123 Punch Board, which I am thrilled about!

123 Punch Board Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Remember that cool new way I was talking about? Check out my notched end on my patterned paper. I create notched ends all the time with my scissors. Pretty sure most cards I make have one somewhere.

But instead of scissors, I am now going to grab my 123 Punch Board! Easy and perfect! To create the notch in the paper, cut the paper to size.

123 Punch Board Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Here I have a 1” piece of patterned paper. Slide the paper into the punching mechanism, lining it up to be centered. Punch and voila!

123 Punch Board Card by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

To finish off my card, I had to create a matching envelope. The 123 Punch Board makes not only envelopes, but envelope liners too! How beautiful is that paper from the Creekside collection?

Letterpress Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with one of my favorite techniques! Letterpress has long been a look that makes my heart skip a beat. Letterpress is an inked impression. Its elegant, and oh, so fancy. Leave it to We R Memory Keepers to make creating letterpress easy and beautiful!

Letterpress Card Set by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

When you have these pretty letterpress plates, well, you have to make a set of cards! Not only are they lovely together, but they make a wonderful gift!

Letterpress Card Set by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

 

Begin by applying adhesive to the back of one of the letterpress plates. The sheets of double-sided adhesive come in the kit. For the smaller images, simply trim the adhesive to size.

Letterpress Kit by We R Memory Keepers

Ink is then applied to the patterned side of the plate. When doing this letterpress technique, you MUST use a wet and juicy ink. Pigment ink works well, though the resin ink pad that comes in the Letterpress Kit is ideal as it reacts best with the cotton fibers in the letterpress paper. (You can also purchase resin ink pads separately in a variety of colors.) Dye-based inks will not provide the complete coverage needed for the letterpress impression.

Letterpress Kit by We R Memory Keepers

You can apply the ink directly to the raised images, but I find that rolling a brayer into the pigment ink and then across the plate creates a more equal coverage. It also keeps ink from getting in undesired places.

Letterpress Card Set by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Using the Evolution Advanced, I rolled the plate through the machine. I found that rolling through a couple of times made a better impression. Cool part about these letterpress plates is, they will fit through most standard manual die cutting machines!

After each impression, the inked plate was cleaned off. I loved the adhesive sheets for this reason, the plate stayed in place as I cleaned it. Awesome!

Letterpress Kit by We R Memory Keepers

After the backgrounds were finished, I repeated the process with the word hello. With the smaller pieces of letterpress paper, also included in the kit, I trimmed it down to fit. The lines on the base of the plates makes it easy to line the paper up each time.

Letterpress Card Set by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The debossed and inked words are fantastic!

Letterpress Card Set by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

While I was having fun, I thought, I could letterpress envelope flaps!

Letterpress Kit by We R Memory Keepers

I lined the edge of the envelope up with the edge of the letterpress plate. Once again, the lines of the base, allowed me to perfectly line up each envelope.

I cannot wait to send these cards to someone special. I hope they will enjoy sending them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Fall Card with the Dial Trimmer

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with a card for fall! The leaves have begun to change and the nights are beginning to cool off. School is back in session and its back to Friday night lights! It was time to make a warm and cozy card with texture and the new We R Memory Keepers Dial Trimmer helped me achieve my goal! Check out this great new tool!

Fall Card featuring the Dial Trimmer by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

Feeling plaid-ish for fall, I grabbed this flannel-looking patterned paper from onecanoetwo’s Creekside collection. I wanted to make it feel like a cozy blanket. To add those edges and feel, I used the deckle edge on the Dial Trimmer.

Fall Card featuring the Dial Trimmer by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

The Dial Trimmer is SO fantastic! On the top of the trimmer are 6 different blades. Simply turn the dial to whichever blade you want, slide it down and cut! The Dial Trimmer also has an extendable arm, which means that cutting paper up to 12×12 inches is a breeze!

Fall Card featuring the Dial Trimmer by Kimberly Crawford for We R Memory Keepers

For the rest of my card, I used other parts from the Creekside collection. One of my favorite card-making tips is; fussy cut patterned paper. I cut the tag, the extra acorn, and the wood slices from different pieces of patterned paper. Instant embellishments!

Dial Trimmer Coupon Card

Hello everyone!  It’s Eva here showing you a coupon card made with the new Dial Trimmer and the Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool.

Dial Trimmer Coupon Card by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

The new Dial Trimmer has 6 different tools in one but one I love the most is the Perforate Tool, I used this feature to create a coupon card for a teen girl made with the Girl Squad collection by our friends from Pebbles Inc.

To decorate the front of my card I cut several 6 x 6 papers with the Wave Tool from my Dial Trimmer and glued them to the front of the card.

Next I used my Sprinkle Punch and decorated the inside of the card with matching colors and a shaker pocket created with a plastic sleeve and a FUSEables card base.

I marked my paper with 2.5 inch squares and typed my “coupons” with my Typecast Typewriter.  Because the paper is going to be folded like an accordion, I typed front and back left a space in the middle.

Typecast Typewriter by We R Memory Keepers

Using the Dial Trimmer with the Perforate Blade, create a perforated line every 2.5 inches.  Embellish the blank squares with paper and fold like an accordion.

To finish the front of the card use Stickers and Die Cuts from the same Girl Squad Collection.

The coupons are glued inside the card and everything is held together with some twine.

This was a Teen Girl card but you could modify this card for many occasions! The receiver just needs to slightly pull the paper and the coupon will tear off perfectly! Isn’t it cool!

I love to receive (and give) interactive cards, they are so much fun! Did you already think of someone to give a coupon card to?

Favorite Colors Project Roundup

Hello and Happy Friday friends! This week our team has shared projects inspired by some of their favorite colors. Did you notice a theme? Our designers all love gold and either teal or mint! We’re kind of partial to teal too. 😉

Color schemes are a great starting point for a project, and a perfect source for inspiration. Today we thought it would be fun to share some past blog projects that were inspired by a particular color scheme to help jumpstart your creativity.

We R Inspired by Colors

Pink and Gold Gift Wrap

Monochromatic color schemes can be so beautiful when done right. We love the various intensities of pink, complemented by the shimmery gold embossed paper in this lovely gift wrap project. That rich embossed texture is easy to achieve with the Evolution Advanced and Next Level Embossing Folders. Stunning! CLICK HERE for more gorgeous pink projects and details.

Swim Team Party Decor

School or team colors are a perfect source of inspiration if you’re throwing a party with a sports or graduation theme. This swim team party decor started with the team colors, and we just love how it turned out. The DIY Party Collection, Alphabet Punch Board, and Banner Punch Board made everything come together in a snap. So much fun! You can find more photos and instructions for this project HERE.



Mint, Gold, and Black Card

This beautiful card is another example of using a monochromatic color scheme. These colors, along with some other vibrant hues, are found in our older Urban Chic Collection. We love the grounding black color along with the other neutral, gold. Gorgeous! CLICK HERE for more photos and details about this project.


Olympics-Inspired Mini Album

This unique sports-themed mini album was inspired by the Olympic rings and colors. The circular pages are attached using the Crop-A-Dile II, and the colorful embellishments are from our older Flower Girl Collection. You can find more photos and details about this project on our blog HERE.



Colorful Scrapbook Page

This scrapbook layout was also made with our older Urban Chic Collection, but is basically limited to the aqua, black, white, and pink from the color scheme. Those colors complement each other perfectly! Remember, you don’t have to use all of the colors and patterns in a paper collection. CLICK HERE for more photos and details about this layout on our blog.


Thanks for joining us today. We hope you’ve found some colorful inspiration. Have a wonderful and crafty weekend friends! We’ll see you next week.

Handmade Cards with the Stitch Happy

Hello and welcome, Chantalle with you today! I’d love to share some cards I have created with the help of my amazing new Stitch Happy Sewing Machine. Gone are my days of adding stitching detail by hand to get a bolder effect. Being able to sew with multimedia threads like baker’s twine is a serious game changer!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I’ve used the Stitch Happy Card Kit, and added stitching to create different effects on these three cards.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The kit contains 61 pieces in all… Ten cards with envelopes and 35 pieces of ephemera – Plenty to create gorgeous layered cards! I love adding stitching to my projects as it just adds that touch of texture and detail. You can imagine my excitement when I saw that the multimedia threads came in metallic options – AH-MAZING!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

This birthday card has a sweet mini banner as an embellishment across the front.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I started out with the sea green/aqua watermark print card and ran it through my Evolution Advanced with a stitched heart embossing folder by Amy Tangerine. I’ve chosen to use a landscape orientation for this one so my banner could have a bit more space to spread out across the front. I then chose some felt circles and cardstock heart die cuts from the Stitch Happy Card Kit and after layering them, I ran them through the sewing machine, leaving a few stitches in between to create a banner. (You can see from the middle photo, how I have left a little gap between where one circle ended and another begins to be fed under the foot.)

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The white multimedia thread really pops against the pink background! TIP: You could use this same method to create hanging banners as well!

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The wood grain print card makes use of the more natural shades in the kit. Another great thing about this kit is that it contains both masculine and feminine elements, so you have lots to work with! The letter ‘I’ has been fashioned from an “L” which comes in the kit (originally spelling ‘HELLO’) I have just snipped off the bottom of the letter to create a capital ‘L’.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

A fantastic feature of the Stitch Happy Sewing Machine is that it has a built in drawer for storage on the right hand side. Very handy for keeping your favourite shades of thread closehand!

The detail on this card has been enhanced by running lines of stitching, using the woodgrain lines as a guide, at intervals along the front of the card. NOTE: It’s a great idea to hide stitching inside a card by covering it with a piece of paper trimmed to size and adhered over the stitching. This creates a nice neat finish inside.

Stitch Happy by We R Memory Keepers

This ‘Shine’ card has a few metallic star bursts with the help of some shimmering Metallic Gold Multimedia Thread. This thread also comes in silver as well! NOTE: Remember to switch out your needle to a number 18 when using this thread weight.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I traced where I wanted the star bursts to be around my die cut star shapes from the card kit and then went about creating the little lines. TIP: It’s a good idea to backstitch when you are doing such short lines to prevent your stitching coming loose.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

The large cork star is from a Heidi Swapp Minc Starter kit. I used the Minc Reactive Paint to activate the bottom half of the star and then ran it through my Minc Machine with Matte Gold Reactive Foil. I’ve never tried foiling cork before, so it may be slightly wonky, lol, but I do love the slightly distressed look the cork provides.

Stitch Happy Cards by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory Keepers

I have absolutely no doubt you are going to be amazed by this clever sewing machine. Fabric… paper…. The opportunities to create are limitless!
