Sweet Valentine

Hello, Bunny here again today on this first of February!
I am hooked on the Fresh Florals Series!  (also they are on a great special so check out at the bottom of the post!)
Today I have a soft and sweet Valentine for you. 

For the card base, I used the Basic Rectangle Backdrop and layered the Brick A2 Cover Plate on top of that I also cut a pink cover plate so I can have the pieces to inlay to make it look like a ribbon. Plus added the Mini 3D Bow. It's such a cool effect that makes it look like a ribbon is woven through the card front.  How sweet is that? I love that look, perfect for a baby card as well!

Then I used the same pink cardstock to match the "ribbon band" and embossed the image using Brutus Monroe's Pearly Rainbow Embossing Powder and the Fresh Floral Bouquet Stamp Set. It's just gorgeous on the soft pink cardstock, photos do not do it justice. 
Then using the Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop Die Set, I cut the heart out of the embossed floral bouquet image. 
Then using the scrap part that was left over, I used the "love" word die from the Slimline Hearts Windows & Words Cover Plate,  cut it out of the embossed part and then another one out of the plain card stock so I could layer them together, you can see that in this photo as it pops it up a little bit. 
Glued it on the heart and then heart on the brick and you have created a sweet valentine!

Easy Peasy Heart Shaped Card

Hello, Bunny here today with a Fun but elegant Heart Shaped Card that is SO EASY!!!

First I stated with black cardstock, stamped the Fresh Florals Bouquet Stamp with embossing ink, and used Brutus Monroe Sterling Embossing Powder for this lovely floral design.
Then took the Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop, the largest size, decided which way it fit best and cut it out using the Stitch Dot Heart die. I cut a second Stitch Dot Heart the same size only in Red Cardstock to create the back of the card. Scored the top about 1/2 inch from the edge, so that it can be glued, but easily opened but still keep the Heart shape.

I added a So Many Stitched Sentiment Strip, the longest one so I had room to cut it, you can also use our Sentiment Strip Die Set for this. I place it at an angle, taped the Stitch Dot Heart die on and took it to the Big Shot, that way it fit the Stitch Dot Heart die perfectly!
Glued that on at an angle, then created the Mini Bow and glued it. 

These would be fun for a class room Valentine too!
Enjoy the Video!

Grateful for Your Love

Hello, how can it be Thursday already and the end of January!
Time just goes too fast!

Today I have a very soft floral card. 
My mom and I used to do floral arranging and this was just like recreating an arrangement for me!

I wanted very soft colors so I used a pale pink cardstock for the background and flowers, cream for the branch accents and light mint cardstock for the leaves from the Poppy Die Set and eucalyptus from Fresh Foliage Die Set.
I started with the Chicken Wire Stencil and Gunmetal Stencil Butter, it gives just that metal look of a chain link fence! Using the largest Rectangle Backdrop and the largest Stitch Dot Rectangle Backdrop which the stencil fits perfectly and even had guidelines to line it up easily...Jillian thinks of everything!
I layered the leaves and eucalyptus first, then added the Budding Branches with the round ones highlighted with Diamond Stickles by Ranger for a little bit of BLING!
The Daisy and Open Daisy were cut out of the soft pink and layered as well as the Poppy including the centers for all flowers! Again wanting a monochromatic look for them.
I cut the Grateful from the Fresh Florals Cascade Die Set and used the sentiment stamp from Fresh Florals Cascade Stamp Set. I stamped on the Sentiment banner that is included in the Fresh Florals Swag Die Set because it is a little bit shorter and fit that sentiment well.
I love the elegance of this card!
Like a fresh bouquet of flowers showing I am "grateful for your love"

The Poppy is one of our popular flower dies and is getting low on stock! So grab it if you are wanting it! We do not know how long it will take to get a re-order of it back in.

Thank you for joining me today! Have a Blessed weekend!

Basket of Hearts!

Hello, Happy Wednesday!
Bunny here with a Basket of Hearts!
I wanted to do a monochromatic card using this pink 110 lb cardstock, which is one of my favorites!

I started with the largest Basic Rectangle Backdrop, then layered the largest Stitch Dot Rectangle Backdrop on it AFTER using the NEW Heirloom Hearts Stencil ~ I love this new stencil~ using Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze in Alabaster. It gives just that nice subtle shimmer!
Then I cut the Bountiful Basket out using the Easter Basket drop in to create the stitching accent, added a matching Bow from the Easter Basket Add on Die Set and popped it out with foam tape. The stems are also from that die set and the hearts are the smallest die in the Stitch Dot Heart Die Set.
I cut a sentiment strip from the So Many Stitched Sentiment Strips Die Set and stamping using a sentiment from Happy Hearts Stamp Set.  The pictures don't do it justice! The stenciled background gives it an elegant touch!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a blessed week!

New Antique Sewing Machine!

Hello! Happy Wednesday, Bunny here and I hope you had a Merry and Blessed Christmas. 
We ate and relaxed a day! The weather was frightful for the weekend here but we didn't mind. Even did a movie marathon!

 I am Sew in Love with this Antique Sewing Machine Die Set!
How darling is THIS!!!
I have an antique Singer machine but it is in the cabinet, which is very ornate itself.

For this card I started with a Black Cardstock base using the largest Basic Rectangle Backdrop, then layered the largest Stitch Dot Rectangle Backdrop on it after stamping in Embossing Ink using the Quilting Stitches Background Cling Stamp and Gilded Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe.
I embossed the Sewing Machine die cut using Raven Sparkle Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe and embossing ink.
I also embossed the heart shaped Button that is included in the Antique Sewing Machine Die Set with Red Sparkle Wow Embossing Powder.
I cut a Stitch Dot Heart Backdrop out of Vellum and ink blended using Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink.
The "sew" is one of the dies in the Antique Sewing Machine Die Set as well as the flag sentiment strip, which I cut smaller using the die. I cut the strip the original length, then laid the die on it, lined it up to the length I wanted and ran it through again! Then stamped using the Sew Blessed Stamp Set which has perfect sentiments for this Antique Sewing Machine Die Set using Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger.
I used foam tape to pop up the sentiment.
See that little spool of thread? How adorable!!! I cut it out of gold cardstock to add a little MORE bling to this card!

Thank you for stopping by today,

Sweet Christmas Tag

Hello, the countdown is on!
Today I have a Sweet little Christmas tag.
I made this for our mailman's gift bag!
We have a new one this year so we don't know his candy preference, the last one loved Plain M & Ms!
Hoping this one likes our choices of Hershey Kisses and Reese Nutcrackers!
So I whipped up this quick but very sweet tag!

Using the Minnie Pearl Tag cut in Kraft, I stenciled Jillian's new Ornamental Octagon 6 x 6 Stencil in Brutus Monroe Unicorn Horn for that slight look of a snowflake!
Added some Fresh Cut Pine branches and the new Feathered Friends, smallest birds. I embossed using Red Sparkle Wow Embossing Powder on Red cardstock. I just wanted to add a little bling to the birds.
I cut two Christmas Tiny Tags and using Season's and Greetings,  then pinned them onto the Scarlet Seam Binding, with a Silver Pear Pin. Easy Peasy just like I like cards and tags!

Wishing you all a Merry and Blessed Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanza!
