Make a nice Label with your Chalk Talk Framelit. It is quick and easy and can even be used on cards for men and boys! My finished Label is 2-3/8″ wide x 2-5/8″ tall. So choose a stamp that is 2-3/8″ wide or less and have fun making this Label!
TIP: 1. Remember to have the part of the top cutting plate that hangs off your Magnetic Platform go under the center part of your Big Shot first. Remember how I had to turn mine around so it would go through.
This fun new Hexagon Hive Thinlit is a fun background for this Valentine card. Use a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to turn your Hexagon Hive Thinlit or any die cut into a sticker! Video is at the bottom of this blog post.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut Your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. *2. Watch the Video below for this step. Cut your Cherry Cobbler card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet the same size. Peel off the words on the Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your Cherry Cobbler card stock. Run though your Big Shot using this sandwich: Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform (all tabs closed), cutting plate, card stock with adhesive side touching cutting plate, Wax Paper, Hexagon Hive Thinlit, and your top cutting plate. Poke out the hexagons that are cut. Not all of them will come out-they are not supposed to! Set aside the hexagon stickers for another project. Peel off the adhesive backing and adhere to your card front. 3. Stamp your Banner Blast Hearts in Real Red ink inside each full hexagon. Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if you want them perfectly placed, or just try to stamp in the center like I did. 4. Stamp your “Love” and “When I thing of YOU I can’t STOP SMILING” sentiments in Real Red in on Whisper White card stock. Cut out the “SMILING” sentiment with the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. Hand cut your “Love” . Put Dimensionals on the back of both sentiments. 5. Cut your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart out with the desired size Heart Framelit. I used the third one from the center. Use your Small Heart Punch to punch out your Red Glimmer Paper Heart. Put Dimensionals on the back of both Hearts. 6. Position the “LOVE” and Small Red Glimmer Paper Heart on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart. Adhere in the desired positions with the Dimensionals. Position your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart and your “Smiling” sentiment in the desired positions on your card front. Adhere. 7. You can use some of the Hexagon Stickers you made to decorate the corners inside your card and on the outside of your envelope. I have not yet tested to see how well they make it through the mail on the outside of an envelope.
I made this “I’m So Grateful There’s You in the World” Butterfly Card as part of an Online Class I took. It is an elegant, yet quick to make card. It also uses the two Butterfly Punches, one of which is on Sale in a Bundle with the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set until September 30, 2013. Have fun making this card for someone special in your life.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Pistachio Pudding card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Early Espresso layer at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Set aside. 3. Cut your Very Vanilla layer at 3-3/4″ x 5″. Place in your Beautifully Baroque embossing folder with about 1″ sticking out of the folder so it will remain flat. Run through your Big Shot. Adhere to your Early Espresso layer with Tombow or SNAIL. 4. Add your Ruffled Trim. I cut about 6″. Put some SNAIL along the flat part by the embossed line and put your Ruffled Trim on trying not to stretch it. Attach Ruffled Trim to the back of the Early Espresso layer with either SNAIL, Tombow or Glue Dots. 5. Cut out the desired Chalk Talk label from Early Espresso card stock. Stamp Chalk Talk sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock. Punch out with the Extra Large Oval punch. Adhere to Early Espresso Label with Dimensionals. Adhere label to card over the Ruffled Trim with Dimensionals. 6. Punch Elegant Butterfly from Pistachio Pudding card stock. Punch Bitty Butterfly from Designer Series Paper. Adhere Butterflies together with Glue Dot. Add Candy Dot to center of Butterfly. Adhere Butterfly to card with Dimensionals. 7. Admire your fun card before you give it to someone special to show you appreciate them.
I really have been enjoying Hexagons and the new Hexagon Punch and coordinating Six-Sided Sampler stamp set. I decided to use the greenish-blues inks. I think this is my favorite card from my last stamp class. Enjoy making one of your own!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Bermuda Bay card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Whisper White card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot using the Honeycomb embossing folder. Adhere to card base using Tombow Glue. 3. Color the Chalk Talk stamp using Pacific Point and Strawberry Slush Markers. Stamp on Whisper White card stock. Cut out using your Big Shot and coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. Outline the edge with your Pacific Point Marker. Put Dimensionals on the back and set aside. 4. Decide which Hexagon stamp you want in the center and stamp it using Midnight Muse ink onto Whisper White card stock. Make sure you have a flat end next to the card stock edge for easier punching. Use a different ink color for each of the six other Hexagon stamps you use. Punch them out. Add a Dimensional to the back of each Hexagon Lay in desired positions on card front along with the sentiment. When you are happy with the positioning, remove Dimensional backs and adhere to card front. 5. Enjoy your summer-colored Hexagon card!
