Heartfelt Creations Water Color Card

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Here is another way to use Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning stamp set. This project is simple yet detailed by the wonderful stamp Heartfelt Creations has put together for us.

 hrt-clg-3581

First I started with my background paper, selecting a gold polka-dot from Bo Bunny‘s Key Lime collection and cutting it to cover the the front of my card. Next using archive ink that is waterproof I stamped the Majestic Morning Accent on the water color paper. Once this is dry you want to moisten the watercolor sheet using a brush. Once the are to be colored is wet,  select 3-4 color sprays of choice. Place a drop of each color in random order. Now for the fun part, using your brush you want swirl all the colors.

*Tip: You can “soften” a color by adding more water to your brush.

While the top dries, proceed to your sentiment. Again, you want to stamp your sentiment with archival ink, then moisten the area of coloring. Follow the same steps from above.

Now all is left is to place the water colored sheet on your card and add a few embellishments of your choice.

Pretty and simple, right?! If you don’t have color sprays you can use water coloring pencils, you would just color lightly then brush.

Bo Bunny Vellum Dream Card

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Bo Bunny Key Lime collections is screaming “summer” which is perfect for my Bo Bunny Vellum Dream Card. The vibrant colors and texture from this collection is a breath of fresh air during these winter months. This next project was made using the Bo Bunny Key Lime 6×6 paper pack, 1 vellum sheet, Bo Bunny Key Lime Brads, Spellbinders Carnation Creations dies, Just Rite Stampers Bunting and Banner Dies, My Favorite Things Dandelion Wishes stamp for the sentiment and pigment ink.

Lets get started!

First select your 4 coordinating sheets from you paper pack. Then cut 1 sheet as a background. Second sheet approx. 3in. X  3in square. Third sheet for the “banner”, the length of your card by 2.5 inches wide. Fourth sheet is the bunting die cut using our Sizzix Big Shot and the Just Rite Stampers Bunting and Banner Dies . Easy right?

Now for focus of the card, we are using the technique of stamping on vellum. First using vellum we want to cut the flower using Spellbinders Carnation Creation dies with the Big Shot. I only used 3 of the dies to create this flower. Next, stamp the back of each flower with pigment ink. Once each flower is dry you want to assemble the flower by placing largest to smallest and securing it with a brad. Make sure the “inked” side is to the back.

The sentiment is next. I am using a non-holiday sentiment from My Favorite Things: Dandelion Wishes. Using the “banner” piece of card stock, stamp the sentiment and heat emboss.  Once your sentiment is dry, you can place your perfect bunting banner at the corner to finish it off.

Valentine Candy Heart Box!

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Many of you ladies may think this is a little backward, but at my house my hubby is the chocoholic, and since I have been changing my eating habits over the last 10 months he has been telling me he doesn’t need sweets (HA!), so this darling little Valentine Candy Heart Box is the perfect size for a few chocolates, BUT not so many he looses all control. He CAN eat the whole box of chocolates and not feel guilty-at all! It’s perfect.

Don’t think this would take hours to do either, this baby is SO easy! Sizzix Bigz Scorboards XL Box Heart does all the work with the help of a manual die cutting machine such as my trusty Big Shot machine. Simply said, all you basically need is some chipboard or mat board, 1 sheet of 12 x 12″ paper and adhesive. You can embellish as you like-or not, it’s up to you.

I used the following products:

657900-Sizzix Big Shot Machine

658057-Sizzix Bigz ScoreBoards XL Box Heart
15316105-Bo Bunny Head Over Heels 12×12 Collection Pack (1 sheet and one sticker)
15307148-BoBunny Head Over Heels Self-adhesive Jewels
203- 1/2″ Scor-Tape from Scor-Pal (LOVE this stuff!)
Stickles
Rat-tail ribbon
paper doily portion

The instructions for the box are on the back of the die cover and they are pretty self explanatory. I then cut the heart out of the paper with the die, but for the sides, I just measured the side and cut 2 strips out of the paper to cover. (Yes, I did actually measure something correctly!)

As an after thought, I think I will add a small piece of tissue paper to the inside before giving it to my hubby on Valentine’s Day to make it look a bit more professional, but I seriously don’t think he’ll notice anything except the chocolate. :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day regardless of who you spend it with! Even if you happen to spend it alone, you should do something nice for yourself-like eat a piece of chocolate! :)

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

Valentine Cupcake Box

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Today I want to show you a super–easy Valentine cupcake box featuring a Sizzix die designed by Eileen Hull.  The die makes a 3-1/4” square box – perfect for a single cupcake.  The box is also so versatile that you can dress it up and make a beautiful gift box (watch for this on a future post – this die is a new fave!).

group

The Sizzix die is specially designed to cut through most chipboard and mat boards, etc.  I started with a standard weight poster board, and cut two pieces (each has three panels and two tabs, one at either end). I used my Sizzix Big Kick to cut the boxes (this is one of the longer, thick dies — a ScoreBoards XL –  so will cut best on the Sizzix machines).  The die scores as it cuts, so there is no need for any additional steps there.  You are ready to fold and assemble the box straight from the die-cutting machine.  I also tried cutting boxes from black board (a little thinner than standard poster board), and from 40 pt. chipboard (about twice as thick as my poster board).  All were successful.

To assemble the box, I folded the panels and the tabs along the score lines.  I added ½” Scor-Tape by Scor-Pal to the two tabs at the ends of one of the panels, and just one of the tabs on the other panel (the other tab is the top flap of the box providing the opening).  I removed the Scor-Tape liner from the panel that had only the one piece of Scor-Tape,  and then placed that tab in the center of the other box panel.  It is important to take your time for this step, making sure to get the tab and the panel lined up properly (the Scor-Tape sticks pretty hard and won’t easily adjust if your alignment isn’t correct).  Then remove the liner from one of the two remaining tabs.  Fold the panel up along side it, carefully trying to line up the box side and the tab.  Repeat for the other side.  That’s it . . . the box is assembled.  Please see the short video for additional instructions on this process.

Now it’s time to cover the box with the patterned paper.  I cut six panels, 3-1/4” square.  Carefully adhere these to each side of the box with 1/4” Scor-Tape.  By adding the paper this way, you can control the overall appearance of the box, making sure that directional patterns, etc. are all going in the right way.  You can also isolate certain parts of your paper to feature on the box.  The alternative to doing it this way is to cover the chipboard before you cut the box.  If you do it that way, you’ll need to think through how the patterned paper needs to be placed in order to achieve a good finished appearance.  The overall appearance of the box is pretty much the same regardless of your method for attaching the patterned paper.

I didn’t line my boxes or the box flap because I felt that they were okay as they were.  You could, of course, choose to line the inside too.  It would be easier to line the box before assembly if you choose to do that.

The little heart tag is cut from a Magnolia Doohickey die.  I glued the reinforcement in place, and stamped the sentiment with black onyx Versafine ink.  I attached a hanger made from bakers twine or burlap twine.

Following are individual pictures of the boxes and information on the box material, patterned paper and ribbon, etc.

Black board; “Head over Heels” by Bo Bunny; Offray 5/8” white sheer ribbon

Scrappin’ Silhouette Valentine Layout!

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

I created this Scrappin’ Silhouette Valentine layout for my Scrapbook Exchange Group that I meet with quarterly after planning a pepermint candy Christmas layout for a couple months. Yeah, I totally changed my plan when I sat down to my computer, which happens quite often for me. I think I’m a little A.D.D. when it comes to creating, because I will start with something in mind, but somehow what I end up with is completely different! In this case I guess you could say that I at least stayed in the color scheme I had originally intended for the peppermint candy (Cheesy smile).

What can I say, I got a little side-tracked when I got on the Silhouette Store for the peppermints when all the hearts popped out at me! I am actually really glad, because this came together at the perfect time, both for my exchange and Feb. blog. Works for me!

I found the heart background and the saying “All MY HEART” and cut those out with my Cameo.

Once I had the background cut, I took the large heart out of the corner, placed it on a sheet of Scor-Tape, cut it out of the Scor-Tape and sprinkled Silhouette Glitter over the sticky side.

IMG_7289

I adhered the background on a sheet of red cardstock then added a matted photo, heart brads on the corners of the matting and red rhinestones on the corners of the background. I used adhesive foam squares between the two mats to add dimension to the photo.

There was a border around the background that I placed on another sheet of red cardstock and inside the border is where I placed the glittered heart and the sentiment.

I added some Stickles to the sentiment on the hearts to add some interest, then added Bo Bunny Head Over Heels stickers and matted photos. Simple, but totally cute!

Now all that’s left to do is add my journaling, which, knowing me, will likely be a while. I’m terrible at getting around to my journaling even though I know how important it is to write things down before I forget. I am working on that.

Today is crazy, so it will be a quick view of Bo Bunny Booth CHA 2014. Sorry BB! I hope I can still capture the essence of their fun new products!

A little while back our designer Patti Senter showed us a wonderful video in her blog post using Bo Bunny’s Head over Heels Collection which was a lot of fun. You can refer to it HERE if you want to see what she did with her mini album. It turned out darling!

Unfortunately, this booth was so busy by the product that I couldn’t get in there well enough to video, so I just took some photos of the different product to show you. I hope you can see it well enough, but if not, you will soon be able to go to our Bo Bunny Category to the individual lines. The new lines are not being released until February, but we are getting products on our site as soon as we can!

I may have missed a couple because it was busy and I was in a frantic rush, so I apologize if I missed one that you wanted to see. I really tried!

There’s much more to cover from CHA, so we’ll do one more tomorrow along with one of our newest designers, Crystal Thompson, and then we will resume next week!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!
