Post#115 Love Heart Theme – Love Spun Card

Today I’m sharing the final post for my Love Heart Theme….and I have tried something different as well….
I chose a white top layer and stamped it with the Amy Tangerine embossing folder called Love Spun….once the ink was dry I carefully aligned the paper on the embossing folder….but instead of embossing over the stamped image I debossed it…doing this gives it a kind of letterpress effect…
To keep things simple I added a die cut word ‘hi’ ย and a red heart on a kraft paper strip and sponged the edges with tea dye distress ink….Then I simply attached the top layer to a Kraft cardstock base and the card was ready…
I hope you liked this card and all the other cards and tags that I shared for my Love Heart Theme…
Thanks for stopping by…

Post#114 Love Heart Theme – Love You Card

I have made a red and gold card before…..but this time I used red as the card base and gold for the top layer…
The gold top layer was embossed using the Lattice embossing folder by Kaisercraft….at the bottom of the card I attached die cut heart border….above it I added two die cut words Love and You…these words dies stand out as I have added a couple more layers under them….
Since the gold top layer is quite shimmery, I did not feel the need to add any embellishments to the card so I just added a small punched red heart in the middle of the two words…
Hope you liked this card…

Post#113 Love Heart Theme – Lots Of Hearts Tag

This is one of the simplest thing I have made for this theme but I quite like it….
Firstly I stamped in the middle of the tag with a large heart stamp and the embossed it with clear embossing powder….then I stamped small hearts in various colours all over the tag….
To finish the tag I added two bright ribbons…
It’s quite simple but I still hope you liked it…

Post#112 Love Heart Theme – You Make Me Happy Card

Here is another one for my love heart theme…..It’s a simple card made using just two stamps and two ink colours but the end result is pretty good….
To create the top layer of the card I stamped the heart stamp first in red ink and then filled up the rest using slate ink…..I layered the sentiment stamped section and rounded two of the corners just like the card and the top layer….
Hope you liked this card…

Post#111 Love Heart Theme – With Love Tag

I created this tag base using the same technique as the one in Post 109…the embossing folder used in this one is called Diamonds by Kaisercraft….after embossing I created the watercolour effect using distress inks..
I wanted this tag to have quite a bit of delicate layers so I used a large punched flower and a die cut stitched border circle and attached them to the tag…then I added a bit of gold string…and finally two banners layers…the top layer banner has the die cut word ‘with love’ on it as well as a few heart sequins….
Hope you liked this tag…

Post#110 Love Heart Theme Water Stamped Card

I saw these gorgeous cards by Jennifer McGuire and almost immediately sat down to make one myself….so I made this card and clicked a quick picture of it with my mobile and emailed it to Jennifer…and I’m happy to report that she liked this card….yay… ย ๐Ÿ™‚ ย ๐Ÿ™‚
Here is the link to the tutorial – Stamping With Water by Jennifer Mcguire
The technique is very simple and is called stamping with water…you use distress ink to cover the paper and then lightly spritz your stamp with water and stamp it…the reaction of the distress ink with the water creates this effect..I used a large word ‘Love’ rubber stamp for this card….and attached this section to the white card base then rounded the corners…
I added two strips of black and glitter like Jennifer….and then under the word love I added the die cut word you….the top die cut is from silver glitter paper and there are two of the same die cuts in red…when gluing these together I slightly moved the top glitter layer so that the red is visible as well…
To finish the card I punched out three small red hearts and adhered them to the card…
Hope yo like this card as much as I do…

Post#109 Love Heart Theme Tag

After making some cards and tags I realised that they all had one thing in common….Love Hearts…So I made a few more and decided to share them with you over the next week as a theme… ๐Ÿ™‚
Once I die cut the tag,I inked an embossing folder(Honeycomb by Kaisercraft) with pigment ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder…this works perfect for me because I do not own any background stamps…
I then created the watercolour effect using distress inks…simply dab some ink on a small piece of acetate and spritz it with a bit of water…transfer this watered ink directly onto the paper….it becomes more beautiful when two colours combine to create a new one….
Once the tag was dry I attached the three die cut hearts in the center…stamped the sentiment on a banner,added a few punched stars and finally added the ribbons…
Hope you liked this tag…there are a couple more that I’ll be sharing with you soon…

Post#108 Double Flip Giftbox

I knew I was definitely going to make this box as soon as I saw a post by Caroline on ย her blog called CraftyCarolineCreates…..I have added her tutorial video below my picture in case you’d like to see how this box is made…
It’s a great size rectangular box….and the two flip lids meeting in the center is the main attraction of this box….it looks complicated but its not so do try this box out….I’m sure you’ll be happy with the results…
I used plain black cardstock to create the base of the box and a printed kraft cardstock for the lid…once the box was ready I simply attached a flower punched pompom made out of brown paper and a couple of banners on it for decoration…
I love this box and it’s been sitting on my desk ever since I made it….Hope you liked it too…

Post#107 Whimsical Dandelions Simple Card

Every now and then I feel stuck and am unable to get any ideas…usually browsing the internet or going through the blogs of my favorite bloggers get me started…but sometimes nothing works…and I just stop creating and start cleaning,organising or resetting my craft things…and while doing that I put aside something I haven’t used in a while and work on a very simple project using it…
This card has been created using the Whimsical Dandelions embossing folder…I just added a blue rhinestone in the center of each dandelion and added a layered banner with the sentiment stamped on it…
The card was ready within minutes…and the best part is that I was able to get ‘un-stuck’ and move on to create lots of other things… ๐Ÿ™‚
Hope you liked this simple card…
