Heart Orange Holiday Blitz 2018 Master Tutorial Thread

Today's tutorial: Gel Impressionism Foiled Collage
Author: Lydia Fiedler (Understandblue)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Gel Impressionism Foiled Collage
Keyword: 2018BLITZ1
Date: Nov. 7, 2018

In a new take on the Serendipity technique, this foiled collage is perfect for die cutting into ornament shapes or just smaller geometric shapes for colorful holiday cards. The hardest part is ripping up your monoprint! If you don't have a Gel Press, use patterned paper, a watercolor wash, ink blending or anything colorful!


Here's my video on the technique:

Default Holiday Blitz: Twist Gate Fold

Today's tutorial: Twist Gate Fold
Author: Dawn Olchefske (dostamping)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Twist Gate Fold
Keyword: 2018BLITZ2
Date: Nov. 7, 2018

I have loved getting crafty for the Holiday Blitz this year and revisiting some of our most favorited tutorials through the years! I've enjoyed getting ahead of the game with my Christmas cards. I found it really relaxing in August and September... alas, I've still got a few to make, and I'm thrilled we are featuring favorites this year in the Holiday Tutorial Blitz.

Today, I had the honor of revisiting Dawn Olchefske's awesome Twist Gate Fold tutorial. I paired it with non-traditional holiday colors and a darling set of Christmas bulbs from Reverse Confetti. It will be perfect to tuck a family photo on the inside.



I hope you'll give this one a try! Super fun and easy with Dawn's awesome directions and step-out measurements!

Today's tutorial: Witch Hat Clip - Transmogrified into a Pilgrim Hat
Author: Kelly Acheson (Technique_Freak)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Witch Hat Clip
Keyword: 2018BLITZ3
Date: Nov. 8, 2018

I loved Kelly's tutorial, and I've updated it for Thanksgiving into an adorable Pilgrim Hat for place cards, treat bags and more. For my hat I used the Hero Arts Circle Infinity Dies - the 2.75" circle and the 1.5" circle. Then the top pieces that form the pipe of the hat I just slightly tapered, so that the bottom part is wider and what the circle rests on.

Today's tutorial: Box in a Bag
Author: Diana Gibbs (Stampin Di)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Box in a Bag
Keyword: 2018BLITZ4
Date: Nov. 9, 2018

This is such an easy project, and a great size for a small gift! I updated Diana's design with some cute die cut handles.


I scored my paper at 5" and 10" along the long side and folded both sides in. Choosing 2 circle dies for the handles, I centered the smaller one at the top of the folded piece and cut through both layers.



Next I lined up both circle dies together on 2 pieces of cardstock to cut 2 handles at once.


I lined the cut pieces up with my first cuts on the designer paper and glued them in place, then followed the rest of Diana's instructions to assemble the bag, lining up the fold lines in my paper with the corners of the box base.



Bonus tips:
-- I used small staples to hold my box corners together.
--Use the cut out from the handle to make a gift tag!

Today's tutorial: Shaving Cream Sparkle
Author: Kim Jolley (kimjolley)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Shaving Cream Sparkle
Keyword: 2018BLITZ5
Date: Nov. 10, 2018



One idea that puts a blitz in my holidays is to have card ideas that are fun and easy to execute in multiples. Today I share a fun opportunity with a twist on a Splitcoast favorite that makes it a snap for mass production.



Kim Jolley originally brought us the Shaving Cream Sparkle technique. I'm usually one to refrain from messy, and I *loved* this. One plate and two re-inkers, and I was able to quickly and easily make a dozen background panels.


Kim's results were gorgeous with metallic heat embossing over the top of the shaving cream, and I opted for deco foil. Much faster execution that allows you to work on many pieces at one time and loads of shine.
1. Squirt liquid glue onto scrap of paper
2. Use a piece of wadded up plastic wrap to dip into glue and "sponge" across card swirled background. Allow glue to "rest" a minute or two so that it becomes tacky.
3. Press foil over glued areas. Let set for a moment so that glue "grabs" the foil and then peel foil sheet away, revealing sparkle across the glued area.

Are you ready to give it a whirl? I can't wait to see your creations!

Today's tutorial: Honeycomb Ornament
Author: Becca Feeken (Becca Stamps)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Honeycomb Ornament
Keyword: 2018BLITZ6
Date: Nov. 11, 2018

I took Becca's beautiful ornament and turned it into a pumpkin for some Thanksgiving decor! I used 9 3 1/8" ovals for mine and did the glue dots in the same position - if you were looking at a clock I did 9 o'clock, 6 o'clock and 3 o'clock for the first layer, and then like between 7 &8 and between 4 & 5 for the second layer and then back to the first pattern - basically the same as she shows in the video.

Default Holiday Blitz 2018 Master Tutorial Thread

Today's tutorial: Star Fold Card
Author: Cindy Elam (Cards4Ever)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Star Fold Card
Keyword: 2018BLITZ7
Date: Nov. 12, 2018

This beautiful star-shaped card would make a beautiful Hanukkah card or tag, and also is a perfect fit for a snowflake die cut!




I used different measurements to make a smaller sized star - the finished size is 3" by 3-1/2". I started with a piece of paper that was 6" wide by 5-1/4". I cut from the center point of the long side down to the corners, then scored as shown in the tutorial at 2-5/8" and 3-1/2".

Today's tutorial: A2 Card Box
Author: Beate Johns (Beate)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> A2 Card Box
Keyword: 2018BLITZ8
Date: Nov. 13, 2018

One of my favorite gifts is handcrafted cards for friends and family, and I am thrilled to share one of my favorite tutorials today, Beate's A2 Card Box. It's perfect for gifting specially crafted cards, and with Beate's tips to try, it is easily adjustable to any size you need!




Another gift I love to give to neighbors and friends over the holidays are homemade goodies, and many of you know the tin or box to give the treats in can be pretty pricey. Not to mention, they can be so big that it takes 3 recipes of the treat to fill the tin. Can you say, 'expensive'?






I love making my own little gift box for a few decadent 7-layer bars. Here I've created a box that is 4" x 5" to hold homemade bars. I've cut a "window" on top of the box with a beautiful snowflake die. I simply wrap my bars in waxed paper.



I hope you'll try this fun project. Minutes to execute and perfect for quick, easy and inexpensive gift presentation!

Today's tutorial: Card Pouch
Author: Cindy Lawrence (One Happy Stamper)
Gallery: Technique Spotlight >> Holiday Blitz Gallery >> Card Pouch
Keyword: 2018BLITZ9
Date: Nov. 14, 2018

Hey! I am updating Cindy Lawrence's adorable card pouch tutorial with an A2 version I think you'll like.



To make my larger giftable card and envelope holder, I did the following:

  • Cut the pockets to 5.75 x 3.75 and score as shown in the tutorial.
  • Cut two pieces for the outside of the bag to 8.5 x 5 and score each piece at 1" on the short side of both. Attach these scored 1" sections together to form the bottom of the pouch. Assemble the pockets as shown in the tutorial and decorate as desired.
