Hugs & Kisses!
I can’t tell you how much I am in love with these sizzix flip it dies!
I love them so much I had to buy the circle die cut version so that I could make even more cards! After taking this photo I added a few more details which I will update later but I had to share this little piece of joy!
Here’s the updated version – a friend requested a 50th birthday card and voila:
I just added an extra polka heart and the numbers 50 using grunge board and some distress ink. And for those of you not familiar with the flip it dies – here is the inside of the card where you can write a message:
Here’s a little card I made for some friends who decided they needed less snow and more sun!
Welcome home! We missed you.
I have more shaker cards to share!
All dad’s love cars/cards right?
I’ve been wanting to use this scrapbook paper for a while and finally found the perfect combo! This card was a lot of fun to make because I made the Happy Father’s Day sentiment appear under the moving slot! Kinda cool right? I like it!
Guess how long it took me to design this card?
Over a year! In the last year, I’ve tried to design this card about 4 or 5 times without much success. (I got excited one day and bought a ton of these dimensional hearts which are so cute) However, this time I like the results!
These hearts are also great to put inside the card where you sign “Love.” Hopefully, I will get more inspiring ideas to use these cutie hearts.
The possibilities are endless with this Martha Stewart Valentine’s Day Paper!
I made another version that was smaller and with different colored twine and felt hearts:
My friend was asking me how long it usually takes me to make one card and I realized that one card actually takes me a few hours! Especially if I get stuck and cannot figure out color combos etc. I find that the first version of a card I make has little flaws here and there but I end up perfecting it after I’ve made version 2.0! After that, it is really quick and easy to make a card because I know what works.
I was inspired to make a few Valentine’s Day Cards…
Love is in the air! And thanks to Martha Stewart, I get to make all these cute cards. I have to say patterned paper makes all the difference! Also, I found a packet of Martha Stewart felt stickers that were perfect for this occasion.
Aren’t the little heart buttons absolutely adorable? The is my first time using felt cut outs and I love it. So so so cute!
More to come!
I feel like this stamp set was made just for me!
That’s how I reasoned paying $40 (shipping and handling) for this adorable stamp set!
Enjoy the first of many scottie cards to come!
Apparently if you love dogs and reading, I’m the one for you!
I received a wonderful request for more doggie bookmarks! The list included adorable Scotties (of course), Schnauzers, Golden Retrievers, and Weiner dogs! I got a bit more creative this time and added some embellishments to the border that runs along the bottom half of the bookmark. I think they turned out great! I managed to make all of these in one sitting which was exhausting but worth it!
I know these bookmarks will be well-loved! Keep on reading 🙂
Patient, kind and in 3D!
As promised, I finally used my 3 dimensional heart stickers and created a card! I wanted to keep the design very simple because the stickers add a lot of color and texture. To make this card, I lined up the hearts in two columns and using a pushpin I made little holes. I picked a love sentiment and it always surprises me how the font can really change the mood of card – the same design can appear playful or formal just depending on the stamp!
Helpful tip: I would recommend placing your card on a piece of cardboard as you use the pushpin because this allows you to create a well-defined pushpin hole. Happy paper punching!
As some would say, “Stick it to me!”
These are such a great find especially when they go on sale for $1 after a particular holiday (i.e. valentines and easter for the above). I love that the stickers are 3 dimensional and I often use the hearts to sign “love” at the end of my cards. On my to-do crafts list is to incorporate these little goodies in a creative way! Hope you find some at your local Michaels!
