Home sweet home



Hi friends, today’s card is from Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac collection. I made a 6×6 card base from dark purple cardstock. The second layer is soft pink cardstock cut slightly smaller than the card base { about an 1/8 of an inch} I die cut two boarders from the Regal boarders and pocket set out of the same soft pink card stock I used for the second layer and glue them in place. The top layer is from the Lush lilac paper collection and choose one that had the umbrella on it.
Next I stamped the umbrella in Memento gray flannel ink on white 110lb cardstock, colored it with Memento angel pink, Rose bud pink and bamboo leaves using daubers. Then die cut it and set it aside. Next I stamped several of the lilac flowers in gray flannel colored them with daubers using Memento lilac posies ink. Then die cut them and glued them one at a time on to the umbrella. I attached the umbrella it to the card with two layers of pop dots so it would stand out better.
Next I cut out another piece ( the house } from the lilac paper collection layered it with the dark purple and attached it with pop dots. The home sweet home message is from Sue Wilson design dies and die cut in white cardstock. I also added some mini butterflies made with yellow cardstock and vellum to add an additional spot of color.

Whooos thinking of you
Hi friends, I don’t know about you, but I don’t think there’s anything better than getting a card in the mail, that says someone is thinking of you. Valentines day is just around the corner and it’s a good time to let a special friend or loved one know you’re thinking about them.
This thinking of you card, doesn’t required any fancy techniques or tools even a beginner crafter could make it.
The card base. Make a top folding card from an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of white card stock. {I use 110lb cardstock} First fold the sheet in half, from the edge of the fold measure inward 4 1/2 inches mark it the spot and cut it, which will result in a top folding card. Now your ready to make the extra layers for your card.
Tip# 1.When cutting additional layers for a card, cut each layer about a 1/4 of an inch smaller than the others. This creates a layered frame for your card base.

Step one. Make a top folding card base out of white cardstock, then add a layer of moss green card stock and If you have a Spellbinders die cut matting set, you use that to make the extra layers. Next choose the pink flowered design from the Sugar Hollow paper pack cut to size and glue in place.
Step Two. Cut two ornate boarders in white cardstock. Use a dauber and ink the edges with Rose Bud Memento Ink. Glue one on each side of the card base.
Step 3. Stamp the guess who circle and the I am message with rose bud ink and die cut both of them, then use a dauber to ink the edges with Rose bud ink and set aside.
Step Three. Make a small rectangle out of dark pink cardstock and round the edges. Next find a piece of Sugar Hollow paper with the birdcage design on it and cut it slightly smaller than the dark pink rectangle and glue it onto the dark pink rectangle. {See picture}
Tip 3. The rectangle width has to be slightly larger than the guess who die cut circle.
Step Four. Put two pop dots on the back of the owl, and place it on the rectangle, then add pop dots to the guess who circle and attach to rectangle.
Step Five. Finish the outside of the card by adding three pink flowers with leaves across the top and two on the bottom of the circle.
Step Six. Stamp the I am message onto white card stock with Rose Bud ink, and use a small square, oval or decorative die cut and place it on the inside of your card.
I’d love to know what you think of the card and if you made one tell me how it turned out.
