April2014.7

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I want to share this super quick and easy card I made using a few of my favorite products.  Today’s cast of characters include a 2×2 photo mat die, mini heart from the Mini Takeout Box, Corner Chomper, wood paper (ARC crafts), You’re Brilliant stamp set (My Creative Time), the Evolution and scraps of burlap and linen.

First I die cut the photo frame and heart using the Evolution.

I arranged the burlap and linen piece at an angle…

Stamped the sentiment…

…and added my heart in the frame.  I love how quick and easy this card was to make.  Change the sentiment to match your occasion. These could easily be mass produced and are perfect to keep on hand.

I love this stamp by Penny Black. I wish it was made in three parts though, the heart, the branch, and the leaves. I suppose that’s my spoiled self talking…clear stamps have me very spoiled. 🙂 As it turned out, I masked the heart and branches/leaves separately. I used Real Red and Cherry Cobbler (both SU) ink for the heart and Close to Cocoa and Old Olive markers for the branches and leaves. I also accented the leaves a bit with Copics. Edges were sponged with Broken China (Tim Holtz Distress).

This is my “oops” card. I wasn’t going to add the butterfly but apparently I can’t glue as well as I thought, lol! Underneath the butterfly is a smearing of glue and it looked pretty obvious. Thank goodness for options to cover it up with! I used the Cathedral Lace die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and trimmed it down for the focal point. Banner and Birthday sentiment are both from Papertrey Ink.

This card is a Silhouette card file and was cut with the Cameo. I edited it a bit and left only (and rearranged) the hearts. The sentiment is from Heart Prints Sentiments (Papertrey Ink). A pretty simple card and super simple to put together.

This heart is from a stamp set called Heartfelt (Tim Holtz). Love sentiment is from Tiny Tags (Papertrey Ink). Image was colored with Copics…another simple card.

And now, on to some organizing…

Susan from Mad Sky Designs posted HERE about organizing her dies and embossing folders. I went to Staples and had to check out that gorgeous Martha Stewart binder. They also had them in red and a beautiful chestnut color, but I loved this one. I bought some pocket dividers also from Martha Stewart, they were in the same section as the binders and came with sheet protectors divided in twos or fours. Each pack had 10 sheets and retailed at $3.99. Thank you, Susan, for the recommendation and post!

I love that there is a top flap to keep your contents from flying out the top. Perfect for dies and my smaller stamps.

Here’s a shot of the other style, divided into two sections. I bought the magnetic vent covers from Menards and cut them to fit into the pockets (@ 4.25″ x 8″)…perfect for my dies.

Here’s a card using a silver glitter gel pen. I converted my Silhouette Studio file and imported it into KNK Studio and used the gel pen to draw the flourish. Using an exacto knife, I cut some of the rubber grip off of the gel pen to fit it into the blade holder of the KNK. It worked well with this pen, but when I tried it with the pink gel pen, it wobbled a bit and left a bad drawing. I will have to try and figure out how to perfect it as I have other colors I’d like to use.

Both hearts are Quickutz Nesting Hearts and the sentiment is from Winter Schminter (Whipper Snapper Designs). It was hard to get a good picture of the silver glitter gel pen but it really is subtle and so pretty in person. Pink silk embroidery thread was a nice added touch…and I’m done!

This card was made using a flourish heart and antique key from Silhouette and were cut using the Cameo. I cut two black keys and adhered them together, then sprayed them with Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Clear Glaze for some added texture. I think tying the bow took the longest, but all in all, it was a quick card. 🙂

My last card uses one of my favorite dies (ha, I have lots of favorites!), the branch die by Memory Box. I made this one for my husband as we’re celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary tomorrow. I can’t believe it’s been that long but can honestly say, he gets better with age. The hearts are an EK Success punch and the stamp is an anniversary set from PTI.
