Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlit

 

The Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlit is a perfect tool for your Valentine’s cards. Of course it  and can also  be used for other occasions as well.Bloomin' Hearts Thinlit

1. To create the heart card base, fold an 8 1/2” by 11” card stock color of choice on the Big Shot Precision Plate. Next put the Scalloped Heart from the Heart Thinlits 3 scallops
above the fold ( this gives you the card hinge ).
2. Using the Bloomin’ Heart’s Thinlit, place on the precision plate atop the Magnetic Platform . ( If using glitter papers cut the heart on the smooth white side of the paper.

3. Using the new tool brush, I was able to get all the small pieces out by a few rolls over the design. Fast and easy but lots of pieces.This tool is so helpful, I was able to cut and clean 21 hearts in less than 30 minutes.

4. If you own the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit, it actually has 2 sized flowers to use with a glue dot on the heart cut out. to mix it up a little,  I punched out butterflies and flowers to add to your
heart.
5. Stamp a sentiment  and make it  into a banner that will go across your heart. Try not to cover up your flowers and butterfly. Tie  a bow  to add to the outside of your card. Under the bow add string of pearls and sequins with a glue dot.

6. Add additional bling to your flowers and butterfly.
7. For the inside use  the small scalloped heart from another thinlit collection and the Sweetheart Punch to layer on top. Stamp a sentiment, put on the white heart and layer
the white heart on to the pink heart.
8. Decorate your envelope.

In two more designs I will showcase the foil paper, stitched framelits as well as the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to bring a whimsical look to a very pretty design that can be given to either gender.

 

 

 

The silver foil and background Designer Series Paper gives a very dreamy feeling to a simple card. I love  how the silver foil makes the card pop!

People with a strong sense of gratitude, love and appreciation don’t necessarily have more than others; they aren’t “luckier”. They simply recognize and see more beauty in their lives. People who count their blessings are generally happier and healthier than people who don’t. If you ever feel as if anything in your life isn’t “enough”, try practicing an attitude of thankfulness. You might realize how good you have it, after all.

When I make a card, I realize the beauty I have when feeling my papers and ink between my fingers, the sound of the blades precisely cutting my papers, all my senses are working in tandem. My mind continues to work. I will continue to inspire, create and share with you.

sneak-peek-novemberHere are the cards for November. They are colorful. Using some un-traditional colors, some new and old stamp sets, embossing powders, new papers and as well as ribbons and threads.

Also in use will be beautiful acetate papers.

Not enough to peek your fancy, come for Part 2 on December 3. You can actually sign up for both classes at the same time.sneak-peek-decemberSpotlight on Stamps Sets!

Happy Birthday Pop Up Card

Balloon Punch bundleA Happy Birthday Pop-Up  is one card from my Chicks and Chocolate Class today. For the front of the card, layer the printed DSP to the silver paper so that the entire 2 layers fit the front of the card. (The printed layer is off-set and reaches almost the edge of the card base.)

Place the balloons where you want them after you stamp a balloon set of strings. Make a small bow and paste accordingly.

Stamp your sentiment. Use the white paper provided and cut around it and pop up with a dimensional. Decorate your envelope.

Happy birthday pop up insideThe black card base should be folded with a bone folder. This will help line up your white inner white Pop – Up layer that is folded in half to the card base center. Your Pop-Up should be trimmed by you, 1/4” all the way around so that when you adhere it to the card base, there will be a border around it. Fold the white Pop Up in half. Place sticky tape  around the sides and align it to the crease to crease in your base card

You may leave the Pop -Up white or use post it notes to mask areas you do not want to color. Adding wink of Stella or Dazzling Diamonds gold, to candles is a good idea.

Add a few balloons and squiggles  to the inside as well.

Some supplies used were:
