Celebrate -- It's your Birthday

Friday, January 20, 2017

Hi friends. I hope you are having a great Friday and that you will have a wonderful weekend as well.  I have a fun birthday card to share with you today using some products from MFT.  This would be a great masculine card and I'm excited to have a couple of these in my stash now for some male birthdays this year.

I started by taking the Equalizer stencil and doing some ink blending over it. I then die cut the headphones in both black and red card stock and then stamped my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. Crafty hugs!

2 Cards for TupeloDesignsLLC

Thursday, January 19, 2017

Welcome friends. I have two cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. On both cards, I am using the Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up die from MFT in different ways as I often like to do. I also wanted to mention that this die is currently on sale in the store with a discount of more than $5.

There is a great sale going on in the Valentine's Day category,  some products up to 40% off. Click here to see all of those. The die I am using today is part of that sale.

Remember about the giant birthday sale going on over at TupeloDesignsLLC where you get the presents. Click here for all the details. 

And if that weren't enough, Dan already has listed several of the new products that will be debuting at CHA later this week. You can pre-order them now.

For my first card, I die cut the Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up die with white card stock. I then added liquid glue to the back of the panel making sure not to get any on the back of the hearts. I added it to my card panel and then popped up each of the heart pieces on either side with my finger.

I then stamped the sentiment which is from Concord & 9th's Brushed Blossom stamp set in Versafine Black Onyx Ink. I popped this up with foam tape.

For my second card today, I started by die cutting the same Fluttering Hearts Cover-Up die from MFT. After it was die cut, I immediately covered the back with adhesive and then adhered it to some fun foam. This way, all of my hearts will stay flat and just add some nice interest for the background.

I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Halftone Hello stamp set and then used the coordinating die to cut it out. The supporting sentiment is from the same stamp set. I popped the hello die cut up with some small pieces of Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope you are having a fabulous week. Crafty hugs!

You are Loved for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Happy Wednesday friends. I have a card to share with you today for Whimsy Stamps using some of the new products released last week.  

I wanted to use the fun new Valentine Assortment Sequin mix so I thought a shaker card was in order. I did want to point out that the price point on this fun new product is only $2.50 - what a steal!  

I first started by taking the largest two dies from the Hand stitched Nested Rectangle Dies and ran them through my Big Shot together to create my frame for the shaker card. I love the fun stitching detail that these dies provide. I did decide to use a light grey card stock for both the frame and the card panel for something different.

I set that aside and stamped on the front of my card base using the fabulous You Are stamp set. Don't you just love the font of the loved portion of the sentiment?  I stamped three red hearts around the sentiment from the same You Are set.

I then adhered acetate to the back of my frame and then filled the card with lots of the Valentine Sequin Assortment mix. I did want to mention that before I added the frame to my card panel, I took my anti-static powder tool and ran it around all of the sides of the foam tape so that the sequins wouldn't get stuck to the sides of the card.

Thanks so much for visiting. Crafty hugs!

DT Projects for TupeloDesignsLLC

Monday, January 16, 2017

Hi friends - thanks so much for stopping by today. I have two cards to share with you today for TupeloDesignsLLC. They both use the Linked Circles Cover Panel die from Reverse Confetti but in different ways.

Before we get to the cards, though, I want to remind you of the birthday sale going on all January at TupeloDesignsLLC. Click here for all the wonderful goodies you can receive for FREE with just an order of $20.17. And remember that there is still FREE shipping in the US with no minimum purchase.

For my first card, I started by taking a white card panel and blending on some Distress Inks. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade.  I then took that panel and die cut it with the Linked Circles Cover Panel die from Reverse Confetti.  I popped out all the center pieces and put those aside. I die cut the Hugs sentiment from both fun foam and gold card stock. Some sequins finish off the card.

For my second card, I took the same Linked Circles Cover Panel die from Reverse Confetti and ran it through my Big Shot. This time, though, I did not use the metal plate which I use with intricate dies to get a better and cleaner cut. I used the regular plates and only ran the die through my machine once so that all the interior pieces of the die would stay intact.  

This worked like a charm. After the panel was die cut, I added lots of adhesive all over the back and added it to my card panel. I then took some of the colored interior pieces left over from my first card and added them back into this card randomly. I took a different hugs die from MFT, Sending Hugs, and once again ran it through my die cutting machine with fun foam and gold foil card stock. I added it to my card along with some gold sequins this time.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite between the two? I love them both and am having a hard time choosing.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by today. Crafty hugs!
