Rose Wonder Wedding Card

Make this Wedding Card with the Rose Wonder Bundle and Vellum.  This week’s posts will feature the Rose Wonder Bundle which included the Rose Wonder Photopolymer stamp set and the Rose Garden Thinlits.  Today’s card features the Rose Garden Thinlits and Glimmer Paper.
Rose Wonder Wedding CardSUPPLIES:
Rose Wonder Bundle #140804
Stamps:  Suite Sayings  Wood #140709, Clear #140712
Ink:
  Tuxedo Black Memento
Card Stock:  Cherry Cobbler
Botanical Gardens Vellum #  (FREE Sale-a-bration item available until March 31, 2016)
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #
Big Shot:  Rose Garden Thinlits #140619 (See Bundle above)
Multipurpose Platform OR Magnetic Platform
Precision Base Plate #139684
Other:  Rhinestones Basic Jewels
Fine Tip Glue Pen
Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Cherry Cobbler card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Large Rose using the Thinlit and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  It is recommended that you put the Sparkly side down and the Thinlit against the paper backing.  The sandwich I used was:  Magnetic Platform, Precision Base Plate, Glimmer Paper sparkly side touching the Precision Base Plate, Rose Thinlit, FLAT cutting plate.  The FLAT cutting plate is very important so all the thin lines and details get cut properly.  I found most of the pieces just fell out.  You can use the Big Shot Die Brush if your pieces need help coming out quickly.
3.  Cut your Vellum card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Set aside.
Use small dots of the Fine Tip Glue Pen along all the thin lines of your Rose.  Too much glue will bleed out and stain your Vellum.  Attach to your Vellum piece.
4.  Stamp your saying using the Tuxedo Memento Black ink.
5.  Attaching your Vellum to the card base can be tricky.  I dotted a few places under the Rose and I just used 4 Glue Dots at the corners.  Apparently some of my Fine Tip Glue Pen dots were too big and bled to stain the card stock.  I also used Glue Dots at the corners and covered them with Rhinestones.
6.  If desired, cut a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White to put in the inside of your card to write on.

I Love You Valentine Card

This pretty, quick & easy I Love You Valentine Card is sure to be a hit.  You can change the card base and card front colors if this will go to a man.  Just make sure the color of your Hearts shows up well against the card front color.
I LOVE You Valentine CardSUPPLIES:
Card Stock:  Pink Pirouette
Red Glimmer Paper
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Big Shot:  Perfect Dots Embossing Folder
Little Letters Thinlits
Punch:  Sweetheart #
Adhesives:  Tombow Glue
Stampin’ Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card base at 5-1/2″ x 11″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Pink Pirouette card front at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Run through your Big Shot using the Perfect Dots or other embossing folder.  Attach to card base.  I use Tombow Glue.
3.  Punch out 4 Hearts from Red Glimmer Paper using your Sweetheart Punch.
4.  Cut out your letters with the Little Letters Thinlits and your Big Shot.
~LOVE from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
~IYOU from Red Glimmer Paper
5.  Glue your LOVE onto your Hearts.  You might have to hold each letter in place for a bit until it starts to stick.  I found a pair of Craft Tweezers very helpful to hold the Letter while putting the Tombow on and placing it on the Heart where I wanted it.  Craft Tweezers stay closed until you pinch them open.
6.  Lay out your LOVE Hearts and the rest of your letters where you want them on your card front.  Glue the I YOU directly onto the card front.  Attach the LOVE Hearts with Dimensionals.

Happy Valentine Card Making!

Bloomin’ Heart Gift Bag

I have really enjoyed using the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit and the coordinating stamp set, Bloomin’ Love.  This detailed Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit is quick and easy when you use the Big Shot Die Brush and your Bone Folder.
Bloomin Heart Gift Bag-Birthday Bouquet paper
Bloomin Heart Gift Bag-Perfectly Artistic paperSUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Bloomin’ Love Photopolymer #140643  (Bundle with Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit #140818)
Ink:  Rose Red/Lost Lagoon  (Choose ink to coordinate or contrast with your paper)
Card Stock:  Whisper White
Garden Green/Mossy Meadow
Designer Series Paper:  Birthday Bouquet (striped) #140557
Perfectly Artistic #141021  (Sale-a-Bration product FREE through February 15, 2016 with $50 purchase)
Big Shot:  Bloomin Heart Thinlit #140621 (see Bundle above)
Precision Base Plate
Big Shot Die Brush #140603
Tool:  Gift Bag Punch Board #135862
Ribbon:  Whisper White 5/8″ Satin #134549
Adhesives:  Stampin’ Dimensionals
Tear & Tape Adhesive

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Choose the green you want to cut with your Heart Thinlit.
2.  Big Shot cutting sandwich:  Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform, Precision Base Plate, card stock, Thinlit with cutting side on card stock, FLAT cutting plate (this makes a huge difference!!).  Run through your Big Shot at least once, twice if it didn’t cut all the way.  If you can peel off around the Heart, then it cut all the way.  If not, just stick down and run through again making sure everything is lined up properly.
3.  Take your Thinlit and card stock and place them on the Big Shot Die Brush foam pad and firmly roll the Die Brush over the Heart Thinlit.  You can run the Dir Brush over both sides if you need to.    The goal is to get most of the excess card stock to separate from the rest of the card stock.  When you get an edge so it peels up you can peel up the rest.  If it is a little stubborn, you can slide your Bone Folder between the card stock and the Thinlit.  This should separate the piece that you want from all the little pieces you don’t want.
4.  Choose the ink color(s) for your Flowers.  I used the solid ones from the stamp set.  Pay attention to the little points on the stamps and put those so they face the same direction.  These will help you line up the Flower Thinlits tabs so you can get the Thinlit lined up with the stamped image more quickly.  You will need two large flowers and three small flowers.  Stamp and cut out with your Big Shot.
5.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the flowers and on the back of the Heart in the flower area.  Attach the Flowers to the Thinlit.
6.  Cut your Designer Series Paper at 6″ x 12″.  Make a Large Gift Bag.  Watch This Video to show you how.  Just make your score lines on the “L”.  Punch holes on each line that is the side of the Back and Front.  Skip the center pleat lines.  Make sure and punch holes at both edges too.
7.  Now attach your Heart Thinlit.  You can hold a Clear E Block inside so you have a flat surface to press against while attaching your Heart.  If you think ahead, you can do this when your bag is flat.  The Bag Front has a pleated side on both sides.  You score the Bag Back first.
8.  Put in your treat or small gift now.
9.  If you punched accurately, you can pinch your sides together and see all the way through the holes.  This means you only have to thread your ribbon through holes on the left and then on the right (or reversed).  If you are not so lucky, pinch the front half of the side together and thread the ribbon through, then the back half of the same side and thread the ribbon through.  Repeat with the other side.
10.  Pull your ribbon tight and tie a bow.  Trim the ribbon ends.  You can add a tag if you want.  Your Bloon’ Heart Gift Bag is now ready to give to someone special.

Happy Heart Making!
