Spellbinders Release Blog Hop

Good Wednesday morning.  I’m excited to be participating in the new Spellbinders release blog hop and using wine die cut images from the new Wine Snippet set from the Wine Country Collection. To celebrate this release, Spellbinders is giving away a $50 gift certificate to a lucky winner. Please leave a comment on the Spellbinders blog by Sunday, April 22nd 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winner will be announced in the blog hop post on Spellbinders blog the following day. Winner is responsible for shipping cost, duties and taxes. 

You should have arrived here from Janette Kausen’s blog and your next stop along the hop will be Olga Direktorenko.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for gift cards.

I began by applying versa to the Wine Snippets die cuts and embossing embossing with super fine gold embossing powder. I repeated the process a second time to get full coverage on the images. I attached the images to the the Fleur de Lis layers using Crafter’s Pick glue and then attached both layers to the card base using mounting tape.  I used square Matting Basics A and B sets to create the frames and attached them to the images using 1/8″ double stick tape.

Wine die cuts are perfect to make gift cards to accompany a gift of wine.

I think smaller 3 x 3 cards are perfect to use as a gift card when giving someone a bottle of wine.

Wine die cuts are perfect to use for cards and gift cards.

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects along the hop .  I’ve linked all the Wine Country wine die cuts and stamps collection below.  You can see all the new release new collections in the “New Arrival” pages.

Happy Easter Card with Flowers

I have a pretty Happy Easter card with flowers to share with you today with colorful flowers and sentiment.  I love the pop of color against the all white frame and card base background.  My project was made using Rubbernecker’s 5140-01D Upper Case Alpha w/Stitch, 5140-02 Lower Case Alpha w/Stitch, 5132D Rectangle Combo #2 OPC Die, 5109D Mixable Flower Stack, 5114D Mini Flower Stack and 5110D Small Leaf Group. I love that the stitches in the frame match the stitches on the letters.

A Happy Easter card with flowers is so easy to make.

I began by forming the flowers using my Garden Tool Kit stylus and molding pad and attaching the layers together using glossy accents. Glossy accent is my glue of choice for layering because it holds like steel when dry.  The leaves were gently shaped with my fingers. 

A Happy Easter card with flowers is so fun and easy to make.

I used double stick tape on the back side of the three frame layers to secure them in place to create one solid frame and then attached it to the card base.  I applied tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of all the letters and set them in place inside the frame.  The flowers and leaves were attached to the frame using glossy accents.  I finished by adding a tiny flower and leaves to the H and filled the flower centers with pre made white Nuvo Crystal Drops attached with glossy accents. 

Have you played with any of the Nuvo Crystal Drops?  I really love this product.  I have a piece of non-tick craft sheet that I keep loaded with several different colors of drops so I have them available when I’m ready to use them.  I am so inpatient and hate waiting for them to dry.  Keeping them made ahead reduces the stress of “waiting”.  LOL!  I thought I would share the picture below even though it is not the color I used today.  I had this photo from a tutorial I did a while back. The drops stay adhered to the craft sheet and are easily picked up with the tip of a paper piercer and set in place.

Have you started making Easter cards yet?  Even though you may still have tons of snow on the ground where you live I hope you have been inspired to create your own Happy Easter card with flowers to brighten your day.

Impression Obsession Spring Release Blog Hop Day 4

Welcome to day 4 of the Impression Obsession 2018 Spring Release Hop!  We have some beautiful new stamps and dies to share AND Gift Certificates to give away! You can find all the blog hop details on the Impression Obsession Blog. I know you are going to enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects our team has to share with you. 

My project today was made using Heart Beat and You & Me.

making a clean and simple die cut heartbeat Valentine card is fun

I cut the Heart Beat in the white layer, turned it face down and applied double stick tape over the die cut opening. I cut the Heart Beat again in red and inserted it the negative opening.  The Me & You sentiment was attached to the card base using a strip of rolled up double stick tape.  It doesn’t get much easier than this.

Vintage Woody Car Beach Scene

Making beach scenes are so much fun and I love using a large focal image like the Rubbernecker Vintage  Woody car stamp and die.   I enjoyed using  the Rubbernecker Beach Master to add a few scenic elements.  It’s hard to believe I worked with Rubbernecker Stamps to create the images for the Kittie Kits Beach Master more than ten years ago.  Time sure flies by when you are having paper crafting fun.

Vintage Woody Car Beach SceneI

I masked off the water line for the scene background using a piece of painters tape.  I used a stylus and foam tip to apply the sand with Antique Linen ink and Tumbled Glass ink for the water.  I removed the mask and sponged on a few clouds in the background.  I cut a second sand piece with my deckle scissors.  I stamped a few sections of sea oats to the sand area and stamped several sections of the sand image to add some texture to the scene.  I applied white embossing paste to the water by tapping it lightly on the paper with my finger.  I applied clear glitter while it was still wet to create a touch of sparkle. I applied a light touch of Cosmic Glitter Glue to the front sand piece and sprinkled with the clear glitter.  The front sand layer was attached to the scene with mounting tape and the scene was attached to the blue layer with ATG adhesive.

Making a Vintage Woody Car Beach Scene is so much funI colored the woody with Copic and Distress Markers.  When I was finished I added a few touches of rust to areas on the car using a mini applicator and Rusty Hinge in.  I then  then cut out the whole car out but eliminated the wheels.  I stamped a second Woody, colored the wheels and then attached the main car over top of the wheel section using mounting tape.  I wanted to create a little dimension between the body of the car and wheels.  I hand cut the little surf board and attached in the window with glue dots.  The car was tucked in behind the sand dune and attached to the scene with mounting tape.

It's so easy to make a Vintage Woody Car Beach Scene

I always have so much fun creating beach scenes and it was especially fun to use my Kittie Kits again.  I appreciate you coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to create a vintage car beach scene of your own. 

Eyelet Framed Die Cut Flower Card

I have a feminine eyelet framed die cut flower card to share with you today.  Framing a floral arrangement on a card front adds interest and another element of interest.  My project today was made using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Bunch of Flowers, Curvy Leaves, and the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Circle Stackables

Having Fun with Framed Die Cut Flowers

I started by attaching the Lollipop layer to the card base using mounting tape.  I created a double matted frame using the largest of the eyelet circle die and a Nestabilities Classic Circle and attached the two layers together using small pieces of mounting tape. I used the negative piece of what cardstock left from the eyelet frame cut to attach to the back of the frame using mounting tape and then attached it to the card base using ATG adhesive.

Would you like to learn to make framed die cut flower cards

The flower sections were formed using my stylus and molding pad and attached together using glossy accents.  I attached the flowers to the card base using glossy accents and finished them by adding drops of white Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Hint:  I have a small section of non-stick craft sheet that I use to apply drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops in several different sizes and my regularly used colors.  It is a handy way to have them ready to use rather than making them and waiting for them to dry.  I use the tip of my paper piercer to pick the drop off the sheet and then attach in the flower center using glossy accents.  I formed the leaves gently with my fingers and tucked them in around the flowers and attached with glossy accents.

Making framed die cut flowers is really easy

I think this would be perfect to use for a birthday, get well or thinking of you card.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have been inspired to make your own framed die cut flower card.
