You Complete Me

February 21, 2019

February!…the month of love and romance! Hello. It’s Samantha sharing my You Complete Me card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Puzzle Heart die and Love Sentiments Stamp set. February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.

Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment on Kraft card measuring 7 cm x 2 cm.

Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.

Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).

Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.

Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).

Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.

Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.

How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day? I hope you liked today’s card tutorial – give it a try and create something beautiful for that special someone in your life.

Happy Crafting!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, He Loves Me…

February 11, 2019

Hi! Diane Prince here today with a very simple card idea for Valentine’s Day.

I guess most of us have played that game plucking the petals of a daisy, wishing to finish with the “he loves me” petal! It seems like the daisies have been in my life for ever but they always remind me of my childhood friendships. I find that the daisies are the most versatile flowers and they can show just how much we appreciate someone as a friend, as a family member, on Valentine’s Day or any day!

Step 1 – Card base:

For the base of this card, you will need:

  • A white Soft Finish Cardstock (85 lb), 12 inches X 6 inches, scored and folded in half.
  • A 6 inches square piece of yellow cardstock.
  • A 5 ½ inches square piece of pattern paper.
  • 5 ½ inches square piece of a lighter pattern paper cut diagonally.
  • Adhere each layers on the card base using Clear Double Sided Tape in the order shown below.
  • Glue a narrow yellow ribbon diagonally with Kids Choice Glue.

Step 2 – Shasta Daisies

Using the 1521 – Garden Notes Shasta Daisy die set:

  • Die cut 3 times the petals out of White Soft Finish Cardstock (85 lb) for the flowers.
  • The small centers needs to be cut 3 times out of yellow cardstock.
  • For the leaves, choose a dark green cardstock and die cut the 2 leaves 3 times.
  • Shape the leaves and the petals using the 4 Pieces All Metal Tool Set. Susan Tierney Cockburn has a wonderful video you can watch to help you with this step. Video here

Step 3 – Ladder Ferns

Using the 1423 – Garden Notes – Ladder Fern die set:

  • Die cut 2 times the 2 different sizes out of a different green cardstock than the one used for the Shasta Daisies leaves.
  • Shade the ferns with a darker green ink on the edges.
  • Shape the ferns using the 4 Pieces All Metal Tool Set.
  • To see how Susan Tierney Cockburn does it, you can watch the following video. Video here.

Step 4 – Sentiments:

With the use of the 1390 – Banners set and the 1466 – Words 2 – Thinking of you set:

  • Die cut the second banner 3 times out of the same yellow cardstock used for the card base, each piece being double up with some Clear Double Side Adhesive.
  • Adhere the 3 banners on top of each other, to give it dimension.
  • Die cut the “I Love You” words out of dark green cardstock doubled with Clear Double Side Adhesive.
  • Stick the words on the banner.

And here’s a closer look at the finish flowers!

I hope you enjoyed this project and I wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day!

Diane

Always and Forever

February 10, 2018

 

Hi there, Artlings!  It’s Suzanne here today with a simple, elegant version of Always & Forever.  This is perfect for a guy for Valentine’s Day, but by changing the colour of the gently sponged ink, you can pink it right up!  By adding dimension to each layer, the result is a super special card for a super special person. Wouldn’t this make a stunning wedding or anniversary card?

This card is so simple to make. It took me longer to photograph it than to make it.  And the photo really doesn’t do it justice!

Here is how you can make this card!
