Hearts & Clovers

In case you were not aware, St. Patrick’s Day is coming. 🙂  This week for my Die-Namite Blog Hop project, I created a charming card using our Basic Hearts Thin Cuts to create a four-leave clover.  I had so much fun making the card for the blog hop, that I decided to create a few more cards for St. Patrick’s Day using our Thin Cuts and patterned papers.  You can find a complete list of the supplies I used on these cards at that very bottom of this post.

BasicHeartsCloverCards

On each of these cards, I used our Basic Hearts Thin Cuts to make the clovers.  These Heart dies come in four sizes – 2½”, 2″, 1½”, and 1″.  During our Die-namite sale, you can purchase just the Basic Heart Thin Cuts set for only $9.71 or  purchase the Basic Shapes Thin Cut Bundle which includes not only the Basic Hearts, but the Basic Ovals, Basic Stars, and Basic Circles sets at an AMAZING SAVINGS.

 

Both of these cards were super-simple to make.  The Lucky Clover card was created using papers from the Chelsea Gardens collection withthe 1½” and 1″ Basic Heart Thin Cuts, then the “Lucky” Artbooking sentiment was cut from Gold Foil Paper and added to the card along with Gold Shimmer, Gold Ribbon, and Gold Gems.  To create the second card, I used a sentiment from the Gimme Some Sugar complements which looked like something an Irish grandma might say to her grandchildren.  The 1½” and 1″ Basic Hearts were cut from matching patterned papers and formed into the clover shape.

 

Don’t forget that during the month of March, our Basic Hearts Thin cuts are available at a considerable discount.  Our Die-Namite sale is defiantly one that you will want to take advantage of to stock up on our Thin Cuts dies, bundles, and stamp + thin cut sets.   Unfortunately, they will only be on sale through March 31st, while supplies lastso make sure you visit my website and order your Thin Cuts before they are gone for good.

I can’t wait to see what you create with our Thin Cuts!

Tea-rriffic Mother’s Day Card

The Tea-rriffic Stamp of the Month is the perfect set to have for creating Mother’s Day cards.  This week, I paired the stamps with our Heart Thin Cuts (currently 25% off) to create this fun card for Mother’s Day.   I’ll be sharing project ideas throughout the month with this stamp set, so be sure to visit often.  At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this card.

tearrifficmothersdaycard

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, 3¾” x ½” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 3½” x ½” B&T Paper (I used Adventure Fundamentals), 4″ x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, 3″ x 1½” Vellum (I used Uptown Fundamentals)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Adhere the 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper to the front of the card base.
2. Using Thin 3D Foam tape, adhere the 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock to the center of the B&T paper.
3. Cut a chevron into one of the shorter sides on both of the ½” B&T paper strips. Layer the B&T paper strips onto the bottom of the 5¼” x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock.
4.  Using the Black Pigment Ink pad, stamp the “Mother’s Day Teacup” and the “Teabag” images onto the 4″ x 4″ White Daisy Cardstock, then sprinkle on Clear Embossing Powder and shake off extra.  Heat with heat gun until it is embossed. NOTE:  Use a small paint brush to brush off any unwanted embossing powder before heating.
5. Using ShinHan Markers, color the “Mother’s Day Teacup” and “Teabag” images, then cut them out. Note: I did not cut out the handle of the teacup. I am lazy sometimes. 🙂 teacupcoloring

6. Using a Piercing Tool or small hole punch, create a hole in the “Teabag” image. Thread a piece of White Twine through the hole and create a knot at the end.
7. Using the Small Heart Thin Cut, make three small hearts from the vellum. (I am so excited that these are 25% off this month!)
8. Adhere the “Mother’s Day Teacup”  and the “Teabag” onto the card, as shown, using 3D Foam tape. To create the “rising hearts”, fold each heart in half and adhere to the card by placing a strip of Liquid Glass on the fold, then adhering to the card. Liquid Glass can also be used to hold the “Teabag” knot in place on the teacup.

The Tea-rriffic Stamp of the Month can be used to create some adorable cards for any occasion.  On this week’s card, I used  watercolors to create a simple background with the Teabag image.  I’ll be sharing project ideas throughout the month with this stamp set, so be sure to visit often.  At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this card.

7.  Allow the paint to dry. Cut out the Teacup image.
8. Using Lagoon Ink, stamp the sentiment onto the center of teacupthe 3½” x 1¼” White Daisy Cardstock. Cut a Chevron to the right of the sentiment.
9. Layer the White Daisy sentiment strip onto the center of the 3¾” x 1½” Lagoon Cardstock, making sure the left edges are flush with each other. Cut a matching Chevron a little larger than the Chevon on the White Daisy strip. Place the sentiment onto the card, as shown.
10. Adhere the Teacup image below the sentiment using Thin 3D Foam tape.
11. If desired, stamp a sentiment onto the inside of the card.
