With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

Hi Craft Addicts!

Today's card is a mix of "Steampunk" and traditional and can be used for either Valentines Day or really any time you want to say you love someone....

With Love Steampunk heart meets traditional hearts square card

How I made this card:-

  • I first of all took a plain 7" white card (from Hunkydory) and cut about 4cm off the right hand side.
  • I then coloured the front of the card using the "Love is in the Air" mask (from the Love of Stamps range by Hunkydory) with a "Red" Generation INX ink pad (I used the XOXO, hearts and balloon heart).
  • Using the Tattered Lace "Love is in the Air Lattice" panel, I cut out the strip for the inside of the card in black card - I had made sure that it fitted before cutting the front part.
  • I also used some Tonic Studios "Hearts" in a couple of sizes/styles to cut out the larger of the hearts in pale Kraft (and embossed it using an A6 embossing folder from DoCrafts Xcut series) - I first of all embossed the middle part of it and then either side of it to complete the pattern.
  • The smaller of the two backgrounds hearts was cut out in "Cream" card and embossed too.
  • I also cut out the "Steampunk Heart" in "Silver" Mirri card using the Tattered Lace die and coloured it using "Blue, Green and Red" alcohol markers and let it dry.
  • I attached it to the centre of the background panel using foam pads to give it some dimension.
  • I also punched out the "Red/White" hearts using a Woodware punch and glued them to the "Lattice" panel using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • I cut out the "With Love" sentiment (from the Love is in the Air collection from Tattered Lace" again in the "Silver" Mirri card, snipped into it so that it was 2 words and stuck it to the middle red heart.
  • Finally, I added some "Violet Galaxy" Nuvo crystal drops to the centre of the cogs to add some more colour.

And there you are - a simple but stylish card that has been made using a variety of dies and cardstock.

Just for you - Cat and butterflies 7" x 5" white card

Just for you - Cat and butterflies 7" x 5" white card

Hi Craft Addicts!

Today's card is a really simple one to make but is really effective using just a topper sheet from Hunkydory, some Mirri card and some die cuts....

Just for you - Cat and butterflies 7" x 5" white card

How i made this card:-
  • I first of all took one of the "Cat in silhouette" topper sheet from the "Twilight Kingdoms" Little Book from Hunkydory and attached it to an A6 "Rainbow" Mirri panel (already pre-cut by them).
  • I then glued it to the top part of a 7" x 5" white card (also from Hunkydory).
  • I felt it needed something else so cut out the "Butterflies" in "Dark blue" 50 Shades Darker Mirri card (from Hunkydory) using the "Cascading Butterflies" new die from Tattered Lace and glued the 'waste' butterflies to the various parts of the card.
  • Finally, I used a sentiment "Just for you" which I had already had and attached it to the card using foam pads.

Two hearts in black 6in linen effect card - LOVE (Valentine's Day card)

Two hearts in black 6in linen effect card - 
LOVE (Valentine's Day card)

Hi Craft addicts!

Another card suitable for Valentine's Day or just to say you love someone - this time using Tonic Studios Dies and one cut out using my Brother ScanNCut!

Two hearts in black 6in linen effect card

How I made this card:-

  •  I used a 6" white linen effect card and using my Tattered Lace mini scoring board, scored the top and bottom of the card several times (both from the inside and out of it). I also added one single embossed line to the left and right of the front of it.
  • I then cut out the main "Heart" in black card using a Tonic Studios die and another more stylised heart using a shape that is in Brother ScanNCut's CANVAS.
  • I also cut out the "LOVE" sentiment (again I think it is a Tonic Die but could be mistaken) this time in an "Orangey-red" Mirri card from Hunkydory.
  • I stuck the first heart to the left hand side of the card at an angle using CS glue and then placed the 2nd one to the right of it, again at an angle.
  • Using CS glue, I then added the "LOVE" sentiment to the bottom right hand corner.
  • To finish off the card, I added some "Carnation Pink" Nuvo Crystal drops.

My heart is yours forever... 6in square Valentine's Day card

My heart is yours forever... 6in square Valentine's Day card

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card is another one that is suitable to be given for Valentine's Day or just to say you love someone - any time of the year of course!

My heart is yours forever... 6in square Valentine's Day card

How I made this card:-

  • I have designed the topper in Craft Artist Professional 2 - using a variety of digikits - the main element was part of a kit from Printable Heaven.
  • Once I was happy with the design, I saved it as a JPG and printed it out in Microsoft Publisher. I then cut it out and edged it with a "Red" alcohol marker.
  • I used the "Torn Edged Rectangle" die to make the panel that I used to layer the topper on top of (out of "Rainbow" Mirri card) - before I stuck it down, I attached some "Red" Organza ribbon to the middle of it (sticking it down on the back so it didn't show).
  • I then glued the whole panel on to the centre of a 6" white straight edged card using Collall All Purpose glue.
  • Finally, I added some "Carnation Pink" Nuvo Crystal drops to the corners and on to the pennant.

And there you are - a simple but stylish card that was made using a digital image that I designed myself, some Rainbow Mirri card, some red ribbon and some Nuvo drops. You can buy it here
