More From My Heart Specialty DSP

It has been a week full of hearts and flowers!  Finishing up the week with one more card using the From My Heart Specialty DSP.  

ASID-BeMineframe

Just like my card on Monday, it is just dies and no stamping.   Let's break down the card.

  • Real Red card base 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2"
  • From My Heart Specialty DSP 4" x 5-1/4" 
  • Flirty Flamingo CS cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die-the largest rectangle.  Cut out a frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies.  Layer this on to the From My Heart DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Whisper White CS cut using the same Stitched Rectangle die used in the prior step.  Insert and adhere it inside of the Flirty Flamingo frame. 
  • Real Red "love" cut using the Well Written dies adhered to the Whisper White CS
  • Real Red CS cut the long hearts die from the Stitched Be Mine dies.  Set aside the solid hearts.
  • This is the kind of "fiddly" step.  Attach the heart outline to the frame & inside of the frame using mini dimensionals.  Place the dimensionals behind the cutouts you will fill in with the solid hearts.  Place the hearts inside of the heart outlines, covering up the dimensionals.  
  • Cut out Whisper White flowers using the Lovely Flowers dies.  
  • Cut out Old Olive leaves using the small leaves die in the Cherry Blossom dies
  • Glue the leaves to the backs of the flower and then secure the flowers to frame using mini dimensionals.  I also used a few flowers to help secure the heart outline to the frame.
  • Place Red Rhinestones in the center of the flowers.
  • Whisper White CS 4" x 5-1/4" adhered to the inside of the card.
  • 1/2" x 4" strip of DSP to the Whisper White CS inside of the card.  Attach a couple of hearts to the strip.

Yes, it does get a little fussy attaching the hearts and I probably won't make a ton of these but I sure love how it turned out.  If I come up with a better way to attach the hearts I will let you know.

This pack of paper is so cute!  It is hard to choose what pattern to use, I love them all.  I have one more card coming up on Friday that uses this paper.  Have I convinced you that you just might need to order it?

AstheInkDriesPP1-2018

I modified the January Paper Pumpkin project.  I cut off 1-1/2" from the original card.

Now it holds a tea bag perfectly.  

AstheInkDriesPP1-20183

I used the framelits from the Lots to Love Box framelits to hold the tea bag in place.  I enjoy receiving the Paper Pumpkin kit every month.  The stamp sets are on trend and perfect for the upcoming season.  I also like having everything cut and ready for me to create with.  If this sounds like something you might enjoy Sale-A-Bration is a perfect time to purchase a Paper Pumpkin subscription.   Consider it a Valentine's gift to yourself.

Sending Lots of Love

Have you ever gotten an idea into your head for a card and after a little bit realized that it wasn't a great idea after all?  I like how this card turned but it wasn't as quick and easy as I thought it would be.  Let me show you and I think you will see what I mean.

AstheInkDriesLotsofLove

All those little tags!  All those little bows!  All that lining up, in an attempt to get the tags even and straight!  You can tell that  I gave up on the even and straight part and went for pretty even and kind of straight.   

The little tag is about 3/4" tall and it is from the Bouquet Bunch framelits.  They are so cute.  The red glimmer hearts were cut using the heart die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.   The sentiment is from the Hanging Garden stamp set embossed in white.

CPC Valentine's Trio

It’s time to get ready for Valentine’s Day!  These projects would be a great way to show your special Valentine that you care.  Give them a little candy treat in the heart pouch, put a little gift into the Valentine gift bag, and let them know you love them by giving them a special double easel Valentine card.  This would also make a great Valentine’s Day class.

Valentine's Day TrioThese great projects were designed by Christy!   To receive the directions on how to make this beautiful trio of projects all you have to do is subscribe to Craft Project Central for the month of January.  In no time at all you will have all the information on how to make these gorgeous projects.


Language of Love Scalloped Tag Candy Holder

I confess I bought a big bag of Ghiradelli Chocolate squares at Christmas time thinking I would make lots and lots of cute little favors.  I did make quite a few favors but I think I  might have eaten even more!  So, instead of eating even more I am going to make these favors using the Language of Love stamp set.

Scalloped Tag Language of Love candy holder

I LOVE that gold is back in style!  I embossed the Language of Love heart in gold on Real Red card stock  and embossed a strip of the Gold Foil paper with the Adorning Accents folder.  Notice the vanilla and gold twine-love!

Here are the basic measurements to make the candy holder.  Cut a piece of Real Red card stock a smidge less than 2"x 6-1/2".  Score 3-1/8"  from each end.  Use the Scalloped Tag Topper punch and punch out both ends.    Add all your gold touches, candy, and tie a bow with the twine and you are done!

Scalloped punch language of love side

Fast, pretty and hopefully this will deter me from eating anymore of the chocolate.  Have a creative day and I will try and stay away from the chocolate.

This set of mini Valentine cards and treats are perfect for the children in your life, or the young at heart! It includes a cute tote bag to carry them for distributing, or for children to use at school for collecting their Valentines. It makes a great gift bag as well.
