Tone-On-Tone Thankful Card

Monochromatic cards can be the most stunning cards, but they can also be difficult to create as you try to find a balance.  This week’s Color My Heart Dare challenge is “Pick your own Red” using Poppy, Ruby, Cranberry with optional Gold. As I attempted to mix various red tones along with some tone-on-tone stamping, I came across a wonderful tutorial that gave instructions for creating a background with stencils and clear embossing powder. The dusty wheels in my brain began to spin, and this card emerged using some of the same techniques with an embossing folder. You can find the complete list of supplies I used on this card at the very bottom of this post.

ToneOnToneThankfulCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5³⁄8″ x 4¹⁄8″ Ruby Cardstock, 4″ x 1½” Ruby Cardstock, 4″ x 1½” White Daisy Cardstock, 6″ x 1″ Vellum

Assembly Instructions:
1. Prepare your 5³⁄8″ x 4¹⁄8″ Ruby cardstock using an anti-static bag. (You can find more information about this bag as well as a few tips for heat embossing on one of my earlier posts here. )
2. Open the Rose Embossing Folder and generously apply VersaMark™ Ink onto the top portion of the folder.
3. Carefully place the Ruby cardstock onto the bottom half of the folder.  You will need to make sure that 1½” of the cardstock will be sticking out from the bottom of the folder to prevent any ink from getting onto the top portion of the cardstock. (If desired you can use a temporary adhesive to keep the cardstock in place.)
4. Close the folder and be extremely careful not to move the cardstock. Apply pressure to the embossing folder to “stamp” the cardstock.  You can use a Brayer, a rolling pin, or place the folder onto a texture pad and run it through an embossing machine.  You DO NOT want to dry emboss the card.
5. Remove the cardstock from the Rose Embossing Folder and sprinkle with Clear Embossing Powder.  Tap of the excess, then heat with a Craft Heater until the powder is melted.

6. Cut out the “Thankful” Thin Cut sentiment from both the Ruby and White Daisy cardstock. Layer the two images and adhere to the top of the card.
7. Cut out the “Ribbon Border” Thin Cut from Vellum and attach to the card by wrapping the ends around the Ruby cardstock and adhering in place. (If desired, use a Gold Shimmer Brush on the Vellum Ribbon Border.)
8. Adhere the Ruby cardstock onto the card base, then add three White Dots, as shown.

The stunning tone-on-tone pattern created with Clear Embossing Powder adds texture and depth to this card.  I would love to see some of your monochromatic creations and have you join me  for this week’s Color My Heart Dare.

Don’t forget that the “Thankful” Thin Cuts used on this card along with many more of our Thin Cuts are on sale this month during our Die-Namite Sale.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Don’t Reinvent the Wheel

There are times I need a card and I have absolutely no inspiration.  I spend hours searching online only to find that I just saved sixteen dog related pins, a gluten-free cookie recipe, and watched a video on how to organize a refrigerator.  Today, I needed a few Thank-You cards and, instead of browsing the internet, I decided to copy a card I made earlier this week.

GoldOverlayCards.jpg

For some recent online challenges I created a simple Bright & Sunny Thoughts card using an overlay.  I enjoyed the look of that overlay, so I decided to create another one, this time with Gold Foil paper and a Gold Embossed sentiment.  The first card was created using White Daisy cardstock, but, even though I like the simplicity, I like the combination of Pink & Gold on second card much more.  Both cards turned out wonderfully, and I didn’t have to reinvent a design – I just used what I already had in my book of tricks.

Speaking of book… if you love not having to “reinvent the wheel” you should check out our new Make It From Your Heart™ Volume 4 Idea Book.   This How-To Book fits inside our Everyday Life™ albums and includes 24 amazing card patterns.  You can view more of what this How-To Book has to offer at the Make It From Your Heart Blog.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to card making.  All you need to do is pull from your own imagination and use a few simple tools like our How-To Books.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Bright Sunny Thoughts Card

Throughout the month of February, I have been creating projects that you can make using our Sunny Thoughts stamp of the month.  This week, in spite of the freezing 1° weather outside, I have created these warm, cheery cards for some weekly challenges.  As always, a list of supplies used on this project can be found at the very bottom of this post.SunnyThoughtsCards

Paper Needed: 4¼” x 5½” White Daisy Card Base, 4″ x 4″ Canary Cardstock, 4″ x 4″ Cranberry Cardstock, Blue Shimmer Trim

For this week’s Color My Heart Color Dare challenge we are required to use Pacifica, Cranberry, Canary, and (optional) Gold.  BrightSunnyThoughtsCardThese colors reminded me of playful florals, so I choose to create a card that would reflect the “sunny” days ahead.  I created an overlay using our Artistry Cricut® collection, added some blue shimmer trim, and a “Sunny Thoughts” sentiment.  To add even more “shine”, I painted the Cranberry overlay with our Gold Shimmer Brush.  This card was also the perfect project to enter into the Heart2Heart Sunny Days challenge.  It is so bold and vibrant and much needed in the darkness of winter.

I hope that you choose to join me in one of these weekly challenges.  Don’t forget to order your Sunny Thoughts stamp set before February 28th.  Visit the Promotions tab my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00.  Come back each week for more ideas and tutorials.  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Sunny Thoughts Pocket Card

Throughout the month of February, I will be creating projects that you can make using our Sunny Thoughts stamp of the month.  This week, I created an adorable pocket card using some sentiments and images from this stamp set.  You can find the list of supplies used on this project at the very bottom of this post.

I chose to use the floral patterned paper from the Make Waves collection along with some Bashful cardstock. Did you know that our Bashful products are on sale this month? During our Pretty in Pink sale you can save up to 30% on most of our Pink and Gold products.

Tips and Tricks in Cricut® Design Space:
• The “Sleeve” was created from the Flower Wreath Sleeve Card – #M101077 from our Artfully Sent Collection.  I resized the image to 8.75″w x 5.75″h then used Contour to remove the “Wreath” and Slice with an oval & square to manipulate the image.
• My “Card” was created from the 3X4 Pocket Card – #M17D261 resized to 4″w x 5.5″h.
• The Circles for the sentiment were sized at 2″ and 2.25″.  I used the “Thank You” sentiment from the Sunny Thoughts stamp set.

Simply Punny Cards

I must admit that when I opened up the A Little Bit of Pun stamp set and saw “Happy Valentine’s Day”, I thought “Just let me get through Christmas”.  Most people like to plan ahead, but me, well, I’m grateful when I remember to celebrate the holidays on the days their supposed to be celebrated.  As I plan my monthly projects,  I like to be able to show you what you can make using our stamp of the month, so this week I created some Simply Punny cards that you can give for just about any occasion. (even Valentine’s Day) As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create these cards at the very bottom of this post.

LittleBItofPunCards.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5½” x 4¼” Cardstock, 5¼” x 4″ B&T Paper, 3″ x 4¼” Cardstock, 3¼” x 4½” White Daisy Cardstock, 2¼” x 2¼” Cardstock, 2″ x 2″ White Daisy Cardstock, ¼” x 12″ Silver Glitter Paper

Techniques Used:
•  I used Black Memento Ink to randomly stamp the images onto the 3¼” x 4½” White Daisy Cardstock, then shaded the images using our Watercolor paints.
  After painting the images, I splattered Watercolor onto the White Daisy cardstock background.
  The circles were cut using our Basic Circles Thin cuts, then attached to the card using 3D Foam Tape.

These cards are simple to make and fun to give.  I plan on sending mine out as holiday thank-yous.  Remember, the A Little Bit of Pun acrylic stamp set is only available until December 31st!  Contact me, or visit the Promotions tab my website to see how you can get this stamp set for only $5.00.

Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop where we will be featuring products from our New Holiday Expressions catalog.  Close to My Heart has outdone themselves this year with all of the gorgeous fall and winter holiday products in this2017HEBadge.jpg catalog.   If you have come here from Kathy Burrows’ blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the products from the New Holiday Expressions catalog.

If you get lost , you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, so naturally, I was drawn to the autumn themed products in the New Holiday Expressions catalog.  My favorite stamp set, so far, has been the Falling For You Cardmaking set with the matching Thin Cuts.  This set is full of possibilities.  You can shade the images with markers or pencils, cut them out and layer them, use them for a background, and more. On this card, I chose to use the stamp set many different ways, including heat embossing the images.  As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this card at the very bottom of this post.

HolidayBlogHop_Card
Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor Paper, 1″ x 6″ Vellum Paper

Techniques Used:
• Since Fall is so full of color, I used our Watercolor paints to create a background on the 4½” x 3¼” Watercolor paper.  HolidayBlogHop_WatercolorBaseWhile is was still partially wet, I stamped the leaf images onto the cardstock using Flaxen & Saffron inks.  This is what mine looked like when I was finished.
• The larger leaf images we created using our Gold & White Embossing Powders. Once the watercolor paints were dry,  I stamped the White Embossed Leaf image first, heat it to set, then stamped the Gold Embossed Leaf image.
• The sentiment was created by taking the phrases and placing them in a line on a 3½” x 2″ Acrylix Block, then stamping them onto the watercolor paper with Black Ink.
• The smaller leaf images were heat embossed with our Gold & White Embossing Powders on the 1″ x 6″ piece of vellum.  I used the matching Thin Cuts to cut out the images, then layered them behind the watercolor paper.

Autumn Thank You Card

I am a fan of quick and simple cards – the ones I can throw together in under ten-minutes.   I like cards that appear elegant and classy, yet took minimal effort to make.  If you feel as I do, you will adore this autumn thank you card which uses simple images from our Feel So Blessed stamp of the month. This card is all about textures. Texture can add so much to a simple card and bring it to the next level.  I have included a few simple techniques you can use to create texture on any card. As always, the list of products I used can be found at the very bottom of this post.

AutumnThankYouCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 4¾” x 4″ Tangerine Cardstock, 2″ x 6″ Fern Cardstock, 1½” x 1″ Espresso Cardstock, 1½” x 3¾”” Almond Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• Embossing Folders are a great way to add texture. I used the Rose Embossing Folder on the Tangerine cardstock, rounded the corners, and cut it into 1″ strips.
• Our Thin Cuts create a soft edges around each of the images. Since my Cricut® was packed away, I needed an alternative way to cut out the leaves. Our Falling For You Cardmaking Thin Cut worked perfectly for this task.  (Just because they came with the stamp set, doesn’t mean I always have to use them with the stamps.) After cutting three leaves from Fern cardstock, I used the Buffalo Plaid Embossing Folder to add “veins” to the leaves.
• Ribbon is another way to add texture to a project.  I used Burlap Ribbon to create a decorative knot  and attached it to the bundle of leaves.
• You can use ink to add more depth & texture.  I inked all of the edges with Toffee Ink before attaching them to the card.

Don’t forget that the Feel So Blessed stamp of the month is only available until September 30th.  Visit the “Promotions” tab on my website to learn how you can purchase this stamp set for only $5.00.

So Blessed & Grateful Card

I love the creating projects with all of the beautiful tones of fall and our Feel So Blessed stamp of the month makes me want to make even more projects this year.  You will enjoy using the sentiments of gratitude for both cards and scrapbook pages, as well as the simple, yet, elegant images that Close to My Heart chose for this stamp set. This week, I created a easy-to-assemble thank-you card using some of our  products from the NEW Holiday Expressions catalog.

SoBlessed&GratefulCard.jpg

Paper Needed: 11″ x 4¼” Cardstock (Almond),  5½” x 4¼” Cardstock (Almond), 1¾” x 4¼” B&T Paper (Cats & Bats),  1¼” x 4¼” Cardstock (Fern)

Assembly Instructions:
1. Fold the 11″ x 4¼” cardstock in half lengthwise at 5½” to create the card base, then using a Corner Rounder, round the corners of the card base. Set aside.
2. Using a Corner Rounder, round the two bottom corners of the 5½” x 4¼” cardstock. Using Watercolor Paints, splatter warm brown onto the  cardstock. Let dry.
3. Using Nutmeg Ink, stamp a “Feather” image onto the lower right side of the 5½” x 4¼” cardstock.
4. Create a mask from a sticky note to cover the stamped image, then stamp the second “Feather” image using Nutmeg Ink.MaskedFeather
5. Shade both “Feather” images using Watercolor Pencils and a Small Round Watercolor Brush. (I used Olive and Autumn Terracotta).
6. Using Black Ink, stamp the “Grateful” sentiment to the left of the feather images.
7. Create an ombre look by placing Goldrush Ink on half of the “Everything” sentiment and Saffron Ink on the other half.  Stamp the image onto the card below “Grateful”.
8. Adhere the 1¾” x 4¼” B&T paper strip horizontally across the top of the card.
9. Using the Leaves Embossing Folder, dry emboss the 1¼” x 4¼” cardstock. Adhere the cardstock to the card horizontally in the center of the B&T paper strip.
10. Gently pull apart a 6″ piece of White Burlap Ribbon into separate strands.  Wrap three stands BurlapRibbonRippingaround the 1¼” x 4¼” cardstock and attach to the back with tape.  Use two of the remaining strands to create a decorative knot on the left side of the card. Trim as needed.
11. Adhere the 5½” x 4¼” cardstock to the card base.
12. Add a sentiment to the inside of the card if desired.
