CARD WITH THREE BOWS FOR THE SCRAPPY TAILS

Hello friends! This is my new card for the Scrappy TailsHere I combined two die set from their last release, and it gave rise to my imagination!


To start I cut out the panel from the grey cardstock and die cut an intricate saucer using 
A7 Coffee Mug Valentine Add-On Metal Craft Die. I'm going to use the silhouette left over after cutting. I also made three bows from colored strips using  the Chocolate Heart Gift Box Metal Craft DieHere I just cut strips of colored cardstock and pasted them close to each other.

To decorate the bows I glued clear adhesive dots from Therm-O-Web and sprinkled on top the glitter. Next I placed my bows to the white card base and covered it with a gray panel. It was charming, wasn't it?


Thank you so much for stopping by!

SHAKER CARD WITH BEAUTIFUL ORANGE BLOSSOMS FOR THE REVERSE CONFETTI

Hi there, it’s my new card for the Reverse Confetti BlogToday I want to share with you this card using beautiful Orange Blossoms stamp set, All Lined Up Cover Panel Confetti Cuts and Lovely Tag Confetti Cuts.


First, I stamped a bounty of beautiful orange and orange blossom images from the Orange Blossoms stamp set. Colored them with copic markers and die cut with Orange Blossoms Confetti Cuts. I made highlights using white pen.


I took two panels of white cardstock. I inked the upper panel with Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Antique Linen Distress Oxide Inks. I added some white and silver splatters. I cut out a window in the upper panel using All Lined Up Cover Panel Confetti CutsNext I made a shaker using my upper panel and  the lower panel with foam tape. Filled it with some sequins.


I die cut the little tag from grey cardstock using the Lovely Tag Confetti CutsI heat embossed in gold here the sentiment using Scripty Sentiments set. Finally I placed all the elements on the shaker panel.


Thank you so much for join me today, have a great day!

REVERSE CONFETTI FEBRUARY CREATIVE HOP

Hello and welcome to the Reverse Confetti monthly creative hop!

It’s an off-month so there’s no new release, so it’s the perfect time to play with some older goodies and inspire you to maybe use some stamps you may already have in your stash.

You'll find the full hop list at the end of this post.

I share with you a super romantic card where I mixed many different sets of stamps.


I started by stamping this cute pals from the Rain or Shine set and a few mushrooms and bugs from the Enchanted Garden set using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I colored them using Copic Markers. And I cut out them using Rain or Shine Confetti Cuts & Enchanted Garden Confetti Cuts. I added some highlights using white gel pen.


Next, I created a night ink blended background in pink shadesI stuck the little circle die cut from the masking paper to the place of the future moon. It will help when I create the sky. I recommend to use few ink colors for this tipe of the background. The inks will blend and make a very interesting result when they dry. I started with the light colors around the circle. It will imitate the glow of the moon. Then I kept moving to the edges, applying the inks layer by layer. The last layer will be the darkest. Next I sprinkled everything with white and gold acrylic paint. After the paint dried, I removed the mask.
For the next step I needed a Big Love Confetti Cuts. I die cut only a few hearts using  Easy-Cut Adhesive from Therm-O-Web and adhered them onto my card base. I placed them against the background so that it seemed as if they were radiating away from the moon. Then, I removed the protective layer from each heart so that they became sticky and covered them with a sheet of Gold Shattered Glass Deco Foil. I carefully smoothed out the panel on top and removed the film. Now my hearts sparkle with gold. It’s so fun!


The last step was to add my images to the card. Also I stamped the sentiment from the Sentimentally Yours set.



I hope you enjoyed the inspiration I had for you today. 
Thank you for stopping by!

CHOCOLATE HEART GIFT BOX FOR THE SCRAPPY TAILS

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing this Chocolate Heart Gift Box featuring some new products from Scrappy Tails. I wanted to make this look like the top of the cake, which is often made on Valentine's day. It was SO fun to make!
You can find below a photo that I was inspired by.


To do this, I diecut the Chocolate Heart Gift Box Metal Craft Die to use as my base, then used the other dies from the Scalloped Heart Add-On for Chocolate Heart Gift Box set to create the “box top”. I wove a cardstock centerpiece as if it were a wicker basket. I adhered two truffles on the side of the half of the heart that will not open. I then adhered my braided heart panel over the top of the box with some foam.


I also made a bunch of die cuts images from the Truffle Add-On for Chocolate Heart Gift BoxI had so much fun die cutting all of these truffles, and adding all of the little details using the different toppings. Next I bent half of the braided heart and glued the candies inside this part so that it looked like the lid of a truffle box. I think it looks interesting! 


Finally I placed the sentiment "Love" on the upper part of a heart. All finished!


Here is a photo that I was inspired by.
