Love Grows
by Olga Direktorenko

Hello and thanks for joining me today!

The project I have created is a floral greeting card.  It is made with white + cream cardstock with the tiny addition of color green. 

The sentiment  is a word die placed over the matching shaker window and it it completed with some alphabet die cuts stuck right onto the card front panel. The whole thing is framed with the beautiful new double stitch die by Poppystamps.

Watch the video below to see how this card was made!

Bicycle Window Card
by Jennifer Svare

  BibycleCard_Watermark_White

Hello!  I hope everyone enjoyed making Valentine's cards this past week!  I hope this card inspires you to give cards with a small gift attached, such as a decorative paperclip used for this card.  A charm was modified and glued to a gold paperclip, and makes a great add-on gift that is easily removed for use by the recipient.

This window card opens with a metallic space for writing.

Window Card Interior

 

For as many different techniques were used in this card, it's super simple to make... and fast, which I love!  In the video below, I'll also share a version of shrink film bicycles made with the stamps from the Valentine's Day Fairies set (really fun for shaker card elements!) I didn't use them for this card, but they would make great paperclip elements as well. Many of you may have seen Dave's recent YouTube video on the process of coloring shrink film embellishments.  If you haven't seen it, make sure to check that out~!

The tiny flowers on the front, as well as the interior flower were stamped using the Sending Scribbles Stamp set. Double Stitch Circle Frames made the perfect window frame. 

A few tiny dots of Nuvo drops were added to the bicycle baskets for some added color.  The Finetec pastel watercolor paints (available at Birchpress Design) are metallic and this card really shines in the light!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you enjoy the video below!

Blue Valentine
by Nancy Penir

DSC_0026

Hello, and welcome to a post featuring one of the new Poppystamps dies, Blooming Rose.

DSC_0022

Now I'm all about romance around Valentines, and the sweet femininity of this die hit all my girly buttons!

Here's a few tips on how I created this card.

DSC_0019

I cut the rose image several time from different colors, gluing down 2 on my distressed card base.

DSC_0016

Once my two rose diecuts were pieced onto the circle, I added foam squares to the back for a bit of a lift off the card.

I always overdo the foam if the card is being sent in the mail, to make sure nothing gets bent or collapses.

A closeup of the card's sentiment, which was doubled and a look at the uplifted center circle.

Hope your Valentines are full of love and maybe just a bit of crafting love too!

Easter Bunny Egg
by Marybeth Lopez

IMG_1739

Hello! Marybeth here today. Getting a head start on some Easter cards today with this fun little shaker .

I am using Poppystamps new Easter Bunny Egg. I decided to water color this one on the front and background  .

Download-3

 I layered this the same as my other shakers ( fun foam and clear acetate) then filled with beads for a little bit louder shaking noise. I  added fun foamunder the grassy area (otherwise the beads would just fall to the bottom and I would need more beads to fill) 

Fullsizeoutput_10a9

I used an older stamp for the sentiment and just curved it to fit around the upper part of the egg. ( Easter Excitement Poppystamps )

It's always nice when its fun and relaxing when creating a card, I have to say this was one of those kinds of cards.

Don't you love it when that happens!

Download

Outside of the sentiment this card can be made with one die!

The paint I used is shimmery but not showing up in the photos. Thank you for the visit today. 

God bless and thank you all for your past kind comments, that you take time to leave.
