We LOVE these altered 'Twas the Night Before Christmas "JOY" letters from Annette. The perfect addition to your holiday decor! Enjoy her tutorial below as well.

"Each year I look forward to adding to my holiday home decor with a new handmade item. This year, I created a simple project using inexpensive paper mache letters from the craft store along with beautiful Twas The Night Before Christmas collection and Core-dinations cardstock. The poinsettia die makes the most realistic flower, I just had to share with you how it was made. Once it’s added to the word JOY, it will make a festive addition to any mantel, shelf or window sill for the holidays. " ~Annette

Next, we have this stunning canvas by Keri. She really creates an amazing piece with Core'dinations and Graphic 45!

"When I heard we were doing a blog hop with Core’dinations, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I loved the idea of mixing as many colors of Core’dinations Signature G45 cardstock with as many patterns as I could to form a background for a mixed media piece. This piece measures 8x10 and features images from G45’s “Typography” collection, along with lots of fun texture, paints and stamped images. I loved the saying “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” because I think it is so true. Life can get hard and busy and sometimes just plain unfun, but when we take time to express ourselves through art, we can...even if just for a short time...be free of all those burdens and pour our hearts onto a page or canvas."~Keri

 "I love making cards, but sometimes they take me quite some time to make. That’s why I am a huge fan of the Staples ATC tags. They are smaller than cards, but can still be used as a small gift card to go with a present. I usually don’t decorate the backside of the ATC tags, but thought it might be nice to add a bit of colour to their backsides as well. Therefore, I took out some beautiful Core’dinations cardstock and inked and teared them to create a simple yet nice backside that I can write a short sentiment on."~Romy

"I LOVE to create these mini canvases. And you can achieve some really cool backgrounds with the Core’dinations cardstock! I simply embossed mine with my Big Shot and a folder, primed it with clear gesso, then went to town coloring with inks and paints. After I was done I sanded the paper to add more interest on the raised areas! I used lots of G45 supplies to top it off , Graphic 45 has some of the BEST stamps! Especially the script ones!" ~Miranda

Next, we have this amazing Mother Goose mini from Lori inspired from a Pin on Pinterest! What a great inspiration, and beautiful project as a result. So brilliant!

"It’s always fun to pull inspiration for your artwork from the world around you. Pinterest is one of those sites you can get lost in with inspiring ideas left and right. I found an adorable pin of an old time Humpty Dumpty book that inspired me to create my own version of a Humpty Dumpty Board Book using the Mother Goose Collection. I’m not one to write stories so I thought it would be perfect to make it into an ABC book for a little one. Scattered throughout the book are tags, pockets and even a little envelope for little fingers and minds to explore. All the characters from this collection are ready to pop off the page and entertain any little tike, or perhaps an older one too." ~Lori

'Twas the Night Before Christmas Pop-up Card Tutorial

The Sizzix die creates a flat card...

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-01-of-25

...which can be propped up to create a stand-up card.

 

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-02-of-25

Cut these pieces from Twas The Night Before Christmas with the dies in the Sizzix set.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-03-of-25

Adhere the Happy Holly-Day piece to the inside portion of the card. Notice the half-circle tab for propping up the card later.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-04-of-25

Close the card flat and adhere the Twas The Night Before Christmas piece to the top portion. (I’ve inked the edges of all the papers with a brown ink)

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-05-of-25

Fussy cut a few holly leaves from Happy Holly-Day, ink edges. Adhere a 6” piece of red metallic ribbon to the same length of green ribbon.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-06-of-25

Adhere the ribbon unit to the Jolly Old Elf die-cut piece as shown.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-07-of-25

Add lots of foam tape to the back for a solid secure layer when adhered.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-08-of-25

Peel and stick the foam tape and adhere this unit to the card front.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-09-of-25

Slice across the die-cut border piece (Bundle of Toys)

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-10-of-25

After inking the edges, adhere both halves to the card above and below the ribbon unit.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-11-of-25

Cut a few strips of desired paper for the card’s inside. Use your favorite border punch for interest.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-12-of-25

Stamp the image onto smooth ivory cardstock with any red ink. Carefully color in elements as desired.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-13-of-25

A Gelli-Roll pen is a fun tool for adding small touches of sparkle and sheen. Color in the number 25 and around the frame.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-14-of-25

Cut out the stamped image closely and adhere to card front with foam tape to pop it up.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-15-of-25

Stamp the Happy Christmas sentiment with green ink onto ivory cardstock and cut out closely. Use the Gelli-Roll pen again to accent areas.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-16-of-25

Adhere stamped cardstock to Antique Moss cardstock and cut closely around it. Adhere this unit to card base with foam tape.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-17-of-25

Cut a 6” length of red metallic ribbon and tie into a small bow, then adhere to card as shown.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-18-of-25

Adhere the fussy cut holly leaves, layered with foam tape to the card front as desired. For added dimension and interest, it’s fun to add a clear dimensional glue like Glossy Accents to the holly berries. This will appear clear once dry.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-19-of-25

Adhere three small chipboard circles to the card front.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-20-of-25

See how the glue dries shiny and clear?

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-21-of-25

The bit of sheen from the Gelli-Roll pen coordinates with the metallic ribbon nicely.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-22-of-25

The card is finished!

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-23-of-25

And looks so pretty when propped up.

Twas-the-Night-Before-Christmas-Pop-up-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-24-of-25
