Big Hedgehog

Hi there crafty friends, hope you are all having a good week. Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Have you started on your Valentine's Day cards? If  not, today's project share may be the perfect inspiration to get you in the craft room to make a card or two.

To create this card, I began with creating my background image. I stenciled red hearts onto a piece of 5 x 7 inch white cardstock with the Memory Box Drifting Hearts Stencil and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.

Next I cut the stenciled background with the Double Stitch Rectangle Frames die. Then adhered both the frame and the inside piece to a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding black note card with some liquid adhesive.

Then I die cut the Big Hedgehog Left and Big Hedgehog Right images from both a kraft and dark chocolate colored cardstock. I removed the hedgehog's main from the kraft die cut piece by fussy cutting the image with my paper snips. Then adhered the fussy cut kraft image onto the dark chocolate image with some liquid adhesive. 

Next I die cut a large heart image from some vellum cardstock, then adhered the heart and both paper pieced hedgehogs onto the stenciled heart background with some foam tape. Lastly I stamped and heat embossed the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock with some white embossing powder. I then attached the sentiment strip to card with some foam tape.

And there you have it, your card is done! I hope you enjoyed today's project share and found inspiration to make your own Valentine's Day cards. Until next time, happy crafting!

Hi there, Marybeth Lopez  here today to share another slimline card with you..... because they are just fun to make.  I used : Poppystamps die called Twinkling Hearts and some beautiful soft glitter paper from Memory box , called Delicate Pastel . Both linked below

I placed the die on the panel and cut it 3 times turning it each time just a bit. I cut and glued 3 different colors from the glitter pad then die cut three more times (mostly just the hearts)

I took many different turns with this card and ended up with a clean and simple card( again) :) The top panel measures 3 3/4  x 9 the folded pink card measures  just a bit more than the white panel.

Hard to capture the beautiful shimmer of this soft glitter paper, hope you can see.

You're Pandastic
by Sue McRae

20210103_152333c

Happy New Year crafters! Sue here with my first post of 2021. Today I have a colourful and cute card to start off your week.

I started by taking alcohol inks and making a background that I used to die cut the Confetti Heart Plate from. I adhered the panel to my card base and stamped the hugs sentiment from the Whittle Love stamp set inside some of the hearts and added a few XO’s as well.

I die cut the panda from pearl card stock and coloured in the black sections with a marker. And of course I had to add googly eyes!

The Stitched Envelope is such a handy little die, perfect for adding visual interest to a card and great for having things like flowers, leaves or any of the Whittle Critters pop out of.

The sentiment was white heat embossed and added to the front of the envelope and I added a few sequins for a little sparkle.

You could easily make this a Valentine’s Day card since heart dies and stamps can be used all year long to show someone how much you care!

Wishing you a wonderful crafty week!

Multiple flower cards

Hello Poppy fans! Today I'm sharing a 5-for-1 card series using the Flora bloom solids.

IMG_20200721_221955

First I taped the dies together with washi tape to make sure they'd cut exactly the same place with each cut.
IMG_20200721_221955

Then I chose 5 colors of cardstock and cut the flowers.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then adhered them to a cardbase in rainbow order.
IMG_20200721_221955

I then stamped a flower image over the rainbow flower and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. For this I used 2 different Memory Box stamp sets.
IMG_20200721_221955

I used a mix of vellum, black cardstock and glitter paper for the word dies and the shadows.
IMG_20200721_221955

For all the cards I also stamped an accompanying sentiment.

So there you have it. 5 quick cards for different occasions that are nice to have in your stash.

See you next time

Hedge-Hugs
by Jeanne Jachna

Hedge-Hugs-Three

Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you're staying safe and healthy!  Today I'm sending you hedge hugs with this simple card with lots of details!

Hedge-Hugs-Three

This card starts with a Distress Oxide inked panel of Spun Sugar, Candied Apple, and Mustard Seed.  The creamy pigment ink is easy to blend for quick coverage.  The panel is topped with the Meadowblossom Frame die cut.   The panel is slightly smaller than an A2 size card so the inky edges of the panel can peek from behind.

Hedge-Hugs-One

I added a Luscious Script Hugs in the middle of the heart with a simple sentiment from the Valentines Fairies stamp set.   I adhered it to the card with adhesive foam tape so it is raised from the base of the card.

Hedge-Hugs-Three
I cut a Whittle Hedgehog from white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I colored the entire image in light violet (BV00) and then added a little cheek blush and color to the ear with R01.  Finally I added highlights to the fur and nose with BV04).  I tucked him in under the hugs sentiment.  
Hedge-Hugs-Three

The finishing touch is the addition of colorful jewels to the flower centers.  I love the extra sparkle and shine. 
Hedge-Hugs-Three

Hedge-hugs and love to you!  Have a great day!
