Valentine Treats

Hi everyone!  Today, I have a fun and yummy project to share with you.  I made some Hershey’s Nugget Treat Pouches.  I used the MFT Nugget Label Window and Frame, Mft Die-Namics Pierced Traditional Tag Stax, MFT Nugget Trio Shaker Pouches, MFT Sweet Celebrations Stamp Set, Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables, Hersheys Nuggets of course(chocolate & Chocolate with almonds), Lawn Fawn Flamingo ink, Lawn Fawn Trimmings, Heart paper punch, and grosgrain ribbon.  That’s alot I know, but it was so much fun and easy to make.

Here take a look at what I made:

Aren’t they pretty?  Will it stop the Recipient from eating them? It might stop me..might haha.  So, I first made my covers for my nuggets with Valentine pattern paper.  I even used a heart from the stamp set to stamp on white cardstock.  Which I like a lot. I then die cut my frames and tags.  I used scor tape and liquid glue to put my pouches/frames together.

This sentiment makes me chuckle and the whole reason why I purchased this stamp set.  I did a little stamp surgery when I stamped the sentiment in the stitched heart.  No harm to the stamp, and now the heart looks like a conversation heart.  I have to love you if I am giving you my favorite chocolate right? Lastly, I tied on my ribbon and trimmings.  I use a lighter so my ribbon doesn’t fray.  I hope you like my treats for today, I will be back soon with another project.   vm

Foxy!

Hi there.  I made this cute Foxy card for my DT project using this super cute file #1294 Vixen to be Mine.  You can get this file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

Here take a look:

dsc_0672

I hope you like it.  I used a lot of pattern paper, well more than usual.  I paper pieced this cute fox using my Cricut cutting machine.   I think she looks perfect on a A2 card.  What do you think?  She is very easy to put together too.  I used my paper trimmer to cut my panels and I cut my banner flags myself.  I had some exta hearts cut out from one of my projects so I used those for the center of her bow.  I am so excited she came with a bow, you have no idea!  I gave her some lashes too!

dsc_0666

I chose to decorate the inside with the matching papers from my panel.  I personally left this card blank because I’m not sure if she is going to be a Valentine card or Birthday card.  I have a few crafty friends birthdays in February.  So we will see!

Lastly, I put my panel onto a A2 top folding card base.  I added sequins, gel accents, and Glossy Accents that are still really wet, but I am so inpatient haha.  I also added some copic markers for a little shading.  I hope you like my project, I will be back soon with another project!

Sending X’s & O’s

Hello everyone.  Today, I made a long shaped card.  I was inspired by a few crafters.  It’s a great way to use up all the stamped images from one stamp set.  I usually only use one or two images and scenes are fun to make doing this type of card.

Here take a look at my card:

dsc_0645

I hope you like it?  I certainly do.  I first stamped all the images on alcohol friendly ink paper and colored them in with my Copic markers.   I used Sweet Valentine by C.C. Designs.   I fussy cut them all out, which I enjoy doing.  I cut out my panel measuring it to those long standard envelopes you buy at your local stores.  I used my MFT cloud stencil along with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink for my pink clouds.  I also stamped my sentiment and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I made a custom envelope using my We R Memory Keppers punch board.  I cut my flaps as they were to big.  I decided to punch some holes at the flap to guide some ribbon through for a elegant look. I popped up some of my images and sentiment with foam tape.

Lastly, I added sequins, Spectrum Noir glitter, and gel accents.  I hope you like my project for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  I will be back soon with another project.

Be My Valentine Tags!

Hello everyone.  Today I made some tags for the  Jaded Blossom current monthy challenge, the challenge is to make a gift card holder or a tag.   I used this cute Panda from Pandas are Awesome stamp set.  I also used the Luggage Tag Dies, Bow Dies, and Fancy Valentine stamp set to make my tags.

Here take a look at what I made:

dsc_0627

Aren’t they cute?  I adore that panda and I had to give her a glittered bow.  I made two tags.  I colored the pandas up with a little copic markers and added gel accents with my Gelly roll pens, and Nuvo drops for the center on the bow that I had to give them.  I also added some Glossy accents to their eyes and nose.  I used some pink ink and my Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment.  I popped the pandas up with foam tape.  I added a Valentine sequin mix given to me, and some pink sheer ribbon.  Lastly, I packaged up some conversation heart candies and tied my tags to them.

I hope you like my project for today.  I hope you’ll join the challenge too.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Bee-utiful!

Hi everyone, I’m back with another Design Team project.  Today I used #1318 Bee Mine 2, #1824 Rolodex Cards, and #711 Poloroid Frame Collection for my files for today’s project.  You can find these Files at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

Here take a look:

dsc_0625

I made two memorydex cards, and how cute is this Bee?  It was very easy to paper piece this cute Bee.  I used black glitter paper and I really like how sparkly the bee is.  I also copic colored his wings with a BG11 marker.  I cut out two heavy weight papers and one pattern paper for the memorydex cards.  I used my Cricut Explore One to cut them all out.  I stamped the heart with a sentiment in my stash.  My cutting machine doesn’t really like letters to well, it tears them up.   It’s okay I really like to mix stamping with SVG’s, so it works out well.  I added this cute poloroid heart cut and I decided to add a Hexagon since it is a Bee I am working with. dsc_0621

The hearts and heaxagon came from my shapes in the Cricut design space.  I added some gel accents, glossy accents, and a fun Valentine sequin mix from my friend at Ellescraftingsequins1991 on IG.

I hope you like my fun project for today, thank you so much as always for stopping by!  I will be back soon with another project.

Wishing You!

Hi Everyone. I have some cards for you today.   I was so inspired by My Favorite Things Hearts Entwined Die-Namics from their new release.   I decided to search for a file to use that was similar.  I found a file and I cut out the hearts with my Silhouette Cameo 3.  I then used my Distress oxide inks to color them up.  I used rainbow colors on one and a red and pink combo for the other.  I know I will be making more cards with different color combos like these cards.

Here take a look at my cards:

dsc_0600

 

I used a Jaded Blossom stitched rectangle die from the card mat dies for my white panel.  I also used a sentiment stamps set from Sunny Studio called Over the Rainbow.  I heat embossed the sentiments with white Hero Arts embossing powder over black heavy weight cardstock.  I then popped them up with foam tape over my heart design.  I added my panels to A2 heavy weight top folding card bases.  Lastly, I added clear Nuvo drops.

Here are a few more pictures:

I hope you like my cards and maybe you were inspired like I was.  You might have something similar in your stash.  As always thank you so much for stopping by!  I will be back soon with another project!

I’m a Sucker for you!

Hello there.  I made a Heart shaped card today for my Design Team project.  I used this super cute File #1698 Sucker for You.  I just think this mouse is so cute.

Here take a look at what I made:

I first cut out all the pieces to put this cute mouse and sucker together using my Cricut Explore One.  The sentiment was a little tough for my machine and tore up a few papers I used.  I decided I could write it in?  so that is what I did, now it is more homemade by me!  I knew I wanted to make a shaped card,  so I made one of the hearts to fit this mouse design.  I cut it out two times in heavy weight cardstock, and one time in pattern paper cutting that one smaller to layer over the bigger heart.

Here is a close up:

I also decorated the inside,  cutting out another heart for the inside and layering it with a smaller heart.  I also used the smaller heart for the sucker as well.

Lastly, I added gel accents, pen marks, and sequins to finish off my cute heart shaped card.  This card measures about 5×4,  so I will definetely be making a matching envelope to mail out.  I hope you like my project for today.  Make sure and grab some files at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I will be back soon with another project, as always thank you so much for stopping by!
