Card Making: Heartfelt Creations Majestic Collage Card

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Hello! Today I am making a thank you card using a very gender neutral color and an AMAZING stamp I been wanting to play with. Heartfelt Creations Majestic Collage. This stamp is from the Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning collection released earlier this year. To play along with this stamp we have Tim Holtz’ Distress Ink in Linen and a few color coordination enamel dots.

Let’s get started!

1. First start by trimming your brown piece of card stock to card size and fold.

2.  Trim your second piece of card stock to a square that will be matted with your stamped image.

3. Cut your stamping paper to fit in the mat, and proceed to stamp Heartfelt Creations Majecstic Collage in ink that matches your mat cardstock color.

4. Using Tim Holtz’ distress ink, edge around your stamped sheet.

5.  With a brush, stroke the same ink  used to stamp on to the petals of the flowers.

6. Using glitter spray, spray your card stock and let dry.

7. Stamp sentiment onto brown card stock then layer and glue.

8. Place enamel dots middle of flowers.

9. Place bow or decorative item.

Enjoy!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!

Loving Little B Dies!

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

If you have been paper crafting for a while then you are familiar with the bigger name brand dies, but lately I am loving Little B dies! I had never heard of them before we started carrying them on our website, so of course I thought I’d give them a try. Good move! They are a fantastic addition to my collection of dies! I absolutely love that they come with their own magnetic storage binder. HUGE PLUS!

Little B dies are chemically etched cutting dies with a special coating for easy release. No ejection foam is needed. With each die set you received a designer inset to help you coordinate your dies with other dies from Little B and a magnetic storage binder. The name of the die is on the spine of the binder and it sits easily on your bookshelf! We know you are going to LOVE these products! Visit Little B Inspiration for more ideas for projects!

Little B philosophy from owner Carol Snyder is really is about YOU, their customers and friends. They could not bring to you the passion, creativity, and quality that enliven all of their products, without their intimate love of crafting and abiding belief that everyone inherently wants to create something fun and beautiful with their own hands for themselves or a loved one. Little B commits their knowledge and experience, which you can rely on for products with that fresh look and boutique feel that Little B exemplifies. Their finely crafted and coordinated products are made with such attention to detail, trends and design elements that they are confident they will enhance your home, office and personal life.

My first purchase of Little B dies was the set of Cutting Dies Tags- #100386. This set somes with 10 tag dies ranging in size from .75 to 6.5″. I used the largest size and next to smallest size to create the following tag, along with a variety of products to embellish the tag which I plan on using on a gift bag.

Little B dies are compatible with most manufacturer manual die cutting machines, and I used my Sizzix Big Shot for this particular project. They cut perfectly with one pass. Just use the same sandwich formula as other wafer thin dies.

Next, I stamped my main flower from Hero Arts Hello Sunshine Daisies stamp set using Tim Holtz Distress Markers to color right on the stamp. I fussy cut the flower so I could use foam squares on the back to raise it away from the tag for a dimensional look.  I used another stamp from that set on the large tag using multiple presses from each inking to achieve the various shades for a background. I then tied the small tag around the main flower with elastic cord. I cut two flourishes from Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes by Julianna Hudgins, coated them with Clear Wink of Stella and adhered them to the tag before applying the main flower and tag. then finishing it off with a few tiny pearls on the small tag and ribbon to tie to my gift bag when I’m ready.

Here’s a quick demo using the Little B dies with the Sizzix Big Shot, but if you have another machine, just use the same sandwich as other wafer thin dies.

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!

Fourth of July Cards Using Paper Piecing Technique

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

I can’t believe that it is July already!  One of my favorite holidays, the Fourth of July, is coming up very quickly and I wanted to make a few Fourth of July cards to send to friends and family.  When I looked at my stash, I found that I’ve previously used everything that I have for the Fourth, so I wanted something new and different.  I decided to use some of the “everyday” My Favorite Things Pure Innocence girls to make my cards.   Here they are –

Decorated Graphic 45 Gift Tags

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Summer celebrations are here, and I have been in serious need of gift tags for all those birthday presents and little girl parties we are invited to. I have had in my stash a package of AMAZING Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tags that been begging to be used.  In my previous post, I have made some cards using Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack, and what a better way to have coordinating tags and cards.

I made 4 gorgeous tags in less than 20 minutes.

2. Stamp sentiment “It’s a beautiful day!” from JustRite Stampers Cupcake celebrations using different color ink for each word.

3.  Adhere stamped tag to Graphic 45 Classic Kraft tag.

4. Decorate using arrow stickers included in the Kaisercraft Confetti paper pack.

5. Place enamel dot and/or decorative gem.

6. Tie a Ribbon

Stamping Technique With Faber-Castell Gelatos

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Today I made another folded card using a stamping technique with Faber-Castell Gelatos. This was a fun technique to try, but I do have to admit that it took me some practice and experimenting to get results that I liked. I still want to try a few other techniques, hopefully i will get better with practice!

Here is a list of supplies that I used that can be found at the Cut at Home website.

Faber-Castell Gelatos Designer Colors, Tropical – SKU:770162
Spellbinders Standard Circles, large – SKU:S4-114
Spellbinders Lables One – SKU:S4-161
Spellbinders Gold Labels One – SKU:S4-423
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 1 – SKU: IC0296
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 2 – SKU:IC0297
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU:16016308

photo 1 (5)

Other items from my stash used were Glimmer Mist – pearl, Adhesive Lace and pearls.

I started with a simple fold card, the size of the card stock that I started with was 8.5 x 5.5, I scored the card stock at 4.25, then I scored the 4.25 section in the center. After the scoring was completed I folded the card, the 4.25 score line should be a valley fold and the other fold should be a mountain fold. This is the card base.

I also cut two pieces of patterned paper to add some interest to the card, I cut those so there was 1/4 inch border all around them.

Next is was time to create the center panel with the gelatos.

After I had finished stamping and coloring in my stamped image I misted the image with Pearl Glimmer mist to give it a nice shimmery look. When my image was finished I cut it out using the Spellbinder circle die set. Then I cut the labels and used the gold label pieces to add dimension and pattern to the labels. I layered the labels and centered the circle in side of the labels.

Next I ran the lace across the bottom of the card added the pearls and stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card.

Here is a look at the finished card:

And here is how the card looks opened:

And finally a look at the gelato stamped and colored area:

photo 4 (1)

This was a fun project and it was very relaxing working with the gelatos, but as I found out practice makes perfect and don’t be afraid to play around with the gelatos to see what kind of interesting effects you can come up with! You can also go to the Cut@Home YouTube channel at the link below to see more techniques using Faber-Castell Gelatos!

Till next time, Thanks and Happy Scrapping!
