Let's get started with my card, shall we?

SavingPNG-10

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Memory Box stencil, Drifting Hearts. I added Distress Oxide Ink (Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass) to my background and then used the same colors along with the stencil to create a tone on tone effect. 

SavingPNG-8

Next, I used the Love Heart die to die cut three hearts out from my card panel. I then attached my card panel to my stenciled background so the soft colors were showing through behind the hearts to create a soft pretty background. 

SavingPNG-9

I die cut the Whittle Panda from white cardstock and used Copic markers (N2 and RV 10) to color the details. I then attached the adorable little panda inside the hearts. Lastly, I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom of my card panel before attaching everything to my A2 card base. 

SavingPNG-11

I hope you get a chance to play along with our challenge this month!! You have until the 28th to enter... I can't wait to see what you create! And you never know, you just might be the lucky winner.

Rainbow Hearts
by Sue McRae

IMG_0684c

Hello everyone! Sue here with a cheery rainbow card using one of the Valentine's Day dies from the new release.

Not all heart cards have to be for Valentine's Day, try thinking outside the box in using them in your every day crafting.

I'm sure most of you have lots of scrap card stock lying around, I know I do. So today I'm using up the scraps to make my own rainbow background.

IMG_0650c

Pick whatever colours make you happy for creating your background. I went with a rainbow but you could use different shades of one colour. I cut strips 0.25" and 0.5" wide because I wasn't sure what I was going to do at first. I arranged the colours horizontally and then decided I liked them on a diagonal better and I put a couple of wider strips with the narrow ones just to mix it up. I added my strips to a piece of white card stock that I covered with double sided adhesive. Once I filled my panel with all the strips I trimmed off all the ends.

IMG_0659c

I die cut the Samba Heart Border from white card stock and adhered it the panel. I used the same colours from my background to die cut the hearts. I cut small squares from the coloured card stock and taped them to the back of the border die so I could cut several hearts in different colours at the same time. It only took 3 passes to die cut all the hearts I needed.

IMG_0672c

I added the hearts with foam tape for dimension and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set. 

IMG_0687c

To finish off I added a thin strip of black card stock to the heart panel and some iridescent bubbles.

IMG_0680c

I hope you give this idea a try. It's an easy way to add some fun colour to a card. I have enough strips leftover to make another panel for a future project. Bonus!

Thanks for visiting with me today!

Rainbow Shaker
by Sue McRae

IMG_0565c

Hello crafters! Sue here with a colourful rainbow shaker card.

IMG_0526c

I love a good rainbow so I decided to pull out some of my favorite alcohol inks and make a rainbow heart card. I used Yupo paper, alcohol inks, blending solution, rubbing alcohol and an air blower.

IMG_0540c

I put some blending solution on the yupo and added dots of color in a row up the paper and moved the ink around with the air blower until I was happy with the blending.

IMG_0543c

Using the Grid Heart Frame I die cut the panel, adhered a piece of clear plastic on the back and added a double layer of foam tape around the frame and in between each row of hearts. If you only add foam to the outside of the panel all the sequins would fall to the bottom and I didn't want that. I wanted to have sequins in each row of hearts and I wanted the sequins in each row to match the colour of the inks.

IMG_0568c

I adhered white card stock to the back of the panel so the sequin colours would pop against the white.

IMG_0562c

For the sentiments I used three from the Whittle Love Sentiments set that are perfect for sending to a friend. I white heat embossed the sentiments on black card stock and punched them out with circle punches. I wanted to keep the sentiments small so they wouldn't cover up too much of the fabulous rainbow shaker!

IMG_0555c

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. Hope you make a shaker card for a friend, I know it will put a smile on her face!

Valentine's blog blitz - Love & Hugs
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.57878356454E12

Happy new year, Poppy fans! We are continuing our valentine's blog blitz and I'm sharing 2 cards today showcasing the beautiful Grid heart frame die. Although the Danish flourists have long adapted the valentine's tradition, I myself have not. So instead I made cards of love and hugs.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For the first card I ink blended a background with pink oxide inks and cut the frame 4 times from white cardstock. I layered the frames and glued them on top of the pink base.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut and colored the Whittle panda. To avoid getting my black marker all over the panda I placed a piece of cardstock behind the eye.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

I cut the envelope, heart tag and love outline letters from white cardstock - the shadow from black cardstock. I ink blended the tag and also the little cut out heart. I stamped the sentiments and tugged the panda into the envelope so it looks like he's holding the tag.
Watermark1.57878356454E12

Both the envelope and love outline are popped up with craft foam and the panda itself is popped up as well. I ran over the tiny heart...
Watermark1.57878356454E12

... as well as the letters with a clear sparkle pen and then glossy accents for a shiny dimensional look. Isn't it pretty!?
Watermark1.57878356454E12

For a final touch I added some clear sequins.

IMG_20200112_000701

The other card is all about hedge-hugs. Here I also ink blended the base with oxide inks but this time I threw in a little purple as well.
IMG_20200112_000701

I cut and colored the Whittle hedgehog. Once again I stuck a piece of cardstock behind the ear to ensure not getting my light and dark colors mixed.
IMG_20200112_000701

I left the hugs heart white but popped it up and backed it with a piece of cardstock inked with the same color as the base.
IMG_20200112_000701

Although the light makes it a little hard to see the Grid heart frame is heat embossed with a pretty soft pink and sparkly embossing powder. Sooo gorgeous!
IMG_20200112_000701

And here's the finished card. I hope I have inspired you. But wait... the best is yet to come! You could win the Grid heart frame used on these cards.

The little Whittle faces are all adorable! You can mix and match them to create whimsical seasonal scenes for a bright CAS punch using colorful cardstock, or you can ink them up or paint them for a different effect.

CAS Thank You Card with Video Tutorial
by Nadine Carlier

Thank You Card by Nadine Carlier

Hello! Nadine here today with a CAS thank you card that I made. For me making a CAS (clean and simple) card is challenging for me. I always want to keep adding more to it. So I had to force myself to stop. 
For the flowers I used the Tall Sketch Daisies dies.

Thank You Card by Nadine Carlier 1

For the frame, I used the Pointed Rectangle Frame die and for the thank you sentiment I used a stamp from the Art Deco You Are Wonderful stamp set.

Thank You Card by Nadine Carlier 2

Watch my video tutorial below to see exactly how I created my card....

See you next time! Until then, happy crafting!
