Design Team Monday with Susie

Welcome Eyelet Outlet Fans!
Susie here a few cards for you.  It's almost time to start the new why not start with some encouragement cards? My first card has a base of Bazzill card stock and some scraps of paper I had leftover from another project.  I used an abstract art stamp set to make my brush strokes, but the star of this show is my little line of ladybugs.  Aren't they the cutest?  I love all the brads available at the Eyelet Outlet online store.  Don't you?  Of course, no card is complete without bling, so I used some Eyelet Outlet small black pearls for the center of each white polka dot.

For my next card, I wanted to use the Jumbo Bright Stitched Flowers to spice up a card made completely from scraps.  What do you think?  Aren't they just so very cheery?

Of course, no card is complete without bling, so I added a few Eyelet Outlet colored pearls to each little flower circle to complete my card.
That's it for today.  But we will be back tomorrow with more inspiration for you! If you have a chance, I would love for you to visit me at The Dies Have It.

Design Team Monday with Kerry

Hello Hello Eyelet Outlet fans!  
I'm happy to be sharing another fun and simple last minute Holiday card featuring the Holiday Tree brads 
and Patriotic Star brads with you today.
If you're like me, you're a last minute shopper. So you need a card that comes together very quickly and is a perfect way to say Happy Holidays!

Bazzill card stock, Basic Grey Nordic Holiday paper pad, spellbinder dies, yellow stickles, baker twine

To create the bright yellow stars on the trees.  I used the white patriotic stars which I first colored them with Copic markers R19, and then I added yellow Stickles for some sparkles.

I hope you like it!

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Holidays!

Design Team Monday with Kerry

Hello Eyelet Outlet friends!  
It's me Kerry, sharing a couple of winter projects with you today.
I saw these pretty laser cut wooden wreaths at the craft store, and I thought it would be a super fun project. So I painted the wreath with Viva Decor paint and finished it up with some 8mm Cut Clear Jewels and Blue & Clear Jewel Blings.

And here is another one, I decorated this pretty Christmas tree with Jewel Bling multi sizes.

Hope you like all the 'BLING' action! Eyelet Outlet has several varieties of bling available in the Eyelet Outlet store. Make sure you click the links to see all we have to offer.

 Have a fabulous day!

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Day 9

Hello Eyelet Outlet Fans! I don't know about you, but I have been so inspired by all the creative ways my design teammates have used Eyelet Outlet products in their holiday creations. They are such a talented bunch. I'm honored to be among them.  
I made a special project for you today. It's a winter village I created with my Silhouette Cameo and embellished with Eyelet Outlet brads and bling. The embellishments are what gives this village personality.  

I hope this gets you all in the holiday spirit!! 

There are snowmen carrying candy, trees in the yard, a cute little dog in front of his house, which is decorated with holiday lights.

The other house has a spray of leaves adorned with snowflakes and bling.

12 Days of Holiday Inspiration Day 8

Hi there! Heather here to share another holiday card with you - this time using some fun candy cane brads! These brads just make me feel festive - so bright and fun! I thought they would look beautiful on a chalkboard paper tag - and I do love how they pop!

I love creating with the chalkboard technique - simply stamp your image on chalkboard or black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Next, stamp again slightly off the first image with white pigment ink. Finally, add some details with a white colored pencil, and add some smudges of the white pigment ink to complete the effect.

Eyelet Outlet Supplies: 

Other Supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzil Basics and DCWV Chalkboard paper
Paper Smooches Tag Scallop Die
Clear Stamps: My Craft Spot "Joy to the World" and "Christmas Banner Sentiments"
Ribbon, Baker's Twine, Jute Twine
Mister Huey's Mask
Studio 49 Embossing Paste

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!!
