This is actually the last card (16th card) I made using supplies from the Tin of Cards Project Kit. I had been thinking of using the swirly line stamp to stamp the card background. I had also tried using the Deco Label Framelit to make a Pool Party striped embossed mat for another card, but didn’t like it so I used it here. Have fun! Remember to check back every Wednesday for another card from the Tin of Cards Project Kit. SUPPLIES: Tin of Cards Project Kit #138378

Line up the tassel threads on both the white and red stamped images. Place the cut out 2015 on top of the Real Red stamped 2015. Put your layered Starburst on your card front. 5. I forgot to take a picture of the inside before I mailed the card. But I stamped the Congrats! from the Bravo stamp set and then my son-in-law’s name under that. I needed the card in landscape format so the Congrats and his name would fit across the inside of the card. I messed up the first time, so I stamped the second time on Whisper White card stock. I also laid the stamps Photopolymer side up on the table, then inked up the stamps. I then laid the Whisper White card stock on top of the stamps and used another clear block to rub the inked stamps. Make sure you gently peel up one corner at a time while holding the rest of the card stock in place to make sure all the letters are all the way stamped on your card stock. Trim your card stock to center the stamps if needed. Attach to the inside. There was just enough room left at the bottom to sign our names. 6. I also used the Gift Card Thinlit to make an insert and included some cash so they can go out to dinner or on a date to celebrate his graduation. Watch the Gift Card Video if you want help making it. I just used SNAIL to hold the three lower flaps together and left the top flap unattached.

I took dinner to a friend last week. Her husband is having some health challenges so the meal was healthy, but I also wanted to take them a little treat. I bought these Diamond Daily Mini Cups from WalMart last Fall and thought these would be the perfect size for a few M&Ms. I used the Starburst Sayings stamp set and the Starburst Framelits to decorate the lids. SUPPLIES: Stamps: Starburst Sayings Wood #133182, Clear #133185, Card Stock: Whisper White Inks: Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise Big Shot:Starburst Framelits #132967 Other:Diamond Daily Mini Cups, Multipurpose
M&Ms candy from your local store

My daughter’s and son-in-law’s anniversary was on St. Patrick’s Day and this is the card I made for them. Most of it is quick and easy except for the Heart drying time. Enjoy tweaking this one for someone special. You could use any punched or die cut shape instead of the hearts.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Daffodil Delight card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Night of Navy card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Stamp your sentiment in Silver ink. Let dry for a few seconds. Run through your Big Shot with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. 3. Punch your Hearts from the Silver and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Lay on the card front in the position you want. Now punch your small stars from Daffodil Delight card stock. Put a dot of Tombow Glue on an embossed Night of Navy Star and glue your punched star on top of an embossed star. Do this until you have as many stars as you want above your hearts. 4. Now lay your sparkly Hearts on the Silicone Craft Sheet. Cover each Heart with Crystal Effects. Let dry for 4-5 hours or overnight. (You can just use the Hearts without the Crystal Effects if you want.) 5. After your Crystal Effects has dried on your Hearts, trim any overhanging Crystal Effects from around the edges of your Hearts with Paper Snips. Glue onto your card. 6. Stamp your sentiment in Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Cut out with the Itty Bitty Banners Framelit. Color the edges with your Daffodil Delight Marker. Attach to Hearts with Glue Dots. 7. If you want to add some excitement to the envelope you can use the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder on the envelope flap. Watch this Video to show you how to do this.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Crisp Cantaloupe card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Choose the pattern of the Designer Series Paper you want and cut it at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Attach to card base with Fast Fuse OR SNAIL Adhesive. 3. Stamp your flower image on Whisper White card stock with black ink. NOTE: Use Memento Black ink with Photopolymer stamps. StayzOn will permanently make them black. Color the flowers with Markers. Due to the shading in the stamps only simple coloring is needed to make the flower look great! 4. Choose the desired Oval Framelit to cut out your flower. Yes, I cut off part of the stem. Choose the next larger Oval Framelit and use it to cut your Crisp Cantaloupe mat. Put Dimensionals on the back of both Ovals and layer them together. 5. Stamp Happy Easter in Black ink on Whisper White card stock. Punch out with the Word Window Punch. Punch the mat from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using the Modern Label Punch. Attach your sentiment with Fast Fuse or SNAIL Adhesive. Put Dimensionals on the back. I usually use three half Dimensionals on the back of the Modern Label piece. 6. Lay out your Ovals and sentiment in the desired positions and then attach them. 7. Happy Easter!
This is the Wedding Card I made for my Church Choir Buddy and her new DH who were married on Friday. This card was my inspiration. I tried several other ideas but this is the card that got finished. I may use some of the other parts soon as her sister is getting married in less than 3 weeks.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Real Red card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Watch this video if you want more details on Basic Card Bases. 2. Cut your Whisper White layer at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Run through your Big Shot with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder. Trim the sides close to the Hearts with your Paper Trimmer. Attach to card base with Tombow Glue. 3. Make your Real Red Envelope with your Envelope Punch Board. Cut your Real Red card stock at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ square. Make your first Punch and Score at 2″. Watch this video if you need help using your Envelope Punch Board. 4. I used the retired Expressions Thinlit for the word “Love”, but it is retired. You can use either the Signo White Gel Pen or the Chalk Marker to write “Love” on the envelope. You can also use a stamp you like or just leave it blank. 5. Let’s die cut a couple of Heart Frames with our Framelits. The large one is from Whisper White and is used to mount the Glimmer Hearts to. I chose the largest straight-edged Heart Framelits. Use this sandwich: Magnetic Platform (or Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed), a cutting plate, your Whisper White card stock. Lay both the Heart Framelits with the smaller inside the larger making sure there is an even space in between. The space in between will be your Heart Frame. 6. Now choose the Framelits for the smaller Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper Heart. I used the second and third smallest. Use the same process as above and cut out this Heart Frame. Use your Real Red Marker to color the edges so it will show up against the Whisper White background. 7. Punch 10 Silver Glimmer Hearts and 10 Red Glimmer Paper Hearts using the Itty Bitty Accents Heart Punch. Arrange the hearts around the Whisper White Heart Frame in the desired positions. Attach each Glimmer Heart to the Frame with a Glue Dot. Overlap the two Hearts that meet in the center. 8. Now to put everything together. Slide the large Heart Frame in the Real Red envelope to determine the position on the card front and where to add the Glue Dots to hold it in the envelope. Put a Glue Dot at the bottom tip and one along each side of this Heart to secure it in the envelope. I used Tombow Glue on the back of the envelope and the back of the Heart Frame that showed from behind to secure it to the card front. Now attach your Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Heart inside the large Heart. 9. If desired, you can add a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White to the inside to write on. You can either add a couple of Punched Glimmer Hearts, or some stamped Hearts to the lower corners. Then write you message to the Bride and Groom. 10. Gift Wrapping Hint. If you give them two gifts of different sizes (such as a board game and a DVD OR Project Life Album and Pocket Pages with a Project Life Card Collection with the accessory pack inside the box), wrap the gifts separately. Then use Sticky Strip to attach the gifts together. This way they will stay in place even if you don’t tie ribbon around them.
This card uses the Celebrate Today Photopolymer Bundle with the Balloon Framelits and the Happy Birthday words. I also used the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper. Have fun making this card to give the next birthday girl or guy!
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 diagonal striped Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Sponge around the edges with Bermuda Bay ink. Attach to card base with Fast Fuse adhesive. 3. Cut two balloons from the confetti print with gold flecks using your Big Shot and the Balloon Framelit. Now cut a balloon from Island Indigo card stock using the Balloon Framelit. Sponge around all the balloons with Bermuda Bay ink. 4. Choose the Happy and Birthday stamps and place them on the same clear block. Make sure they fit inside your Island Indigo Balloon. Stamp in Island Indigo ink. 5. Put Dimensionals on the back of all three balloons. Double stack the Dimensionals on the top and bottom of the Island Indigo balloon leaving just one Dimensional on each side. This will make the center balloon stand out some from the other balloons. 6. Put a Glue Dot on the string end of each balloon and place some Gold Baker’s Twine on the Glue Dot. Now attach your balloons to the card front leaving the ends of the Baker’s Twine loose for now. 7. Trim the ends of the Baker’s Twine now. These ended at the bottom of the diagonal striped layer. Gently roll a Glue Dot and attach to the bottom end of each piece of Baker’s Twine and attach to the bottom of your card. 8. Your birthday card is now ready to give to that special someone.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Night of Navy card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and Fold at 4-1/4″. Watch this video for more card base details. 2. Cut your Starbursts from Daffodil Delight card stock. I used the 2nd largest and the smallest. Edge your smallest Starburst with your Real Red Marker. Watch this Video for more details on Edging Techniques. 3. Lay the largest Starburst in the desired position. Rub your Embossing Buddy over the area you will stamp and include the surrounding areas. Stamp your sentiment (Happy Birthday) in VersaMark ink. Remove your Starburst and cover stamped sentiment with the Crushed Curry Embossing Powder. Remove excess including giving the back a couple of flicks with your fingers to get off the extra little specks. Now melt the Embossing Powder with your Heat Tool. Watch this Video if you need help with Heat Embossing. 4. Cut our your desired letters. Here is the “Sandwich”: Megnetic OR Multipurpose Platform (all tabs closed), cutting plate, card stock, Parchment OR Wax Paper, Letter Thinlits, top cutting plate. I use a larger piece of Parchment Paper and put all the letters I need on top of it. Might as well conserve our crafting energy by running through as much as possible at one time through our Big Shot. Run through a second time if you need more than 1 of a letter. Watch this Video if you need help using Thinlits. 5. Now to put the letters on the Starburst. Lay out both words in the desired positions. Now take the center letter of the top word, put a thin line of Tombow on the back and glue it in place. This letter will help you place all the other letters so they look even. Now glue the letter next to it and continue until you finish the top word. Work from the center letter out in one direction leaving a small space between letters and making sure they are straight up and down (in this case). I usually finish the end of the word, then go and work back to the beginning of the word. So I glued down the “P” as my center letter, then the “E”, then the “R”. Then I did the “U”, and finished up with the “S”. 6. Find the center letter(s) of the bottom word. In my case there are two center letters. Use the middle letter of the top word and mentally draw a line straight down the center of the Starburst. Place your letters either on top of this mentally drawn line if you have one center letter OR on each side of this invisible line if you have two center letters. Glue down the rest of the letters working out from the center letters. I did the “I” and “J” as my center letters, then the “A”, and “H”, then moved to the “L”, then finished with the “E”. Hope this helps. Let me know if you want a video on this. 7. I added the center Starburst as my grandson is now in the “Sunbeam” class at Church. He is really excited to be a Sunbeam and in with the bigger kids instead of the Nursery. 8. I put a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Daffodil Delight in the center of the card so he could read my writing.
I was watching a video (which I cannot find now) and dreamed about making a Pirate that moved for my grandsons Valentines Day cards. It worked! I also decided to make a sliding Heart Valentine for my granddaughters. Hope you enjoy making these. If it is after Valentine’s Day you can choose any stamp you can cut out (punch out, die cut, or use scissors) to make it slide. The video is just over 20 minutes long.

Do you need a quick gift? Use a battery-operated Tea Light, a sheet of Designer Series Paper, and your Floral Framelits Dies to make these fun, decorative Tea Lights to help brighten someone’s day.
SUPPLIES: Paper: Your choice of 12 x 12 patterned paper. I used the retired Polka Dot Parade in Real Red. Ink: Cherry Cobbler Big Shot:Floral Frames Framelits #127012 Circles Collection Framelits #130911 Magnetic Platform (optional) Other: Stamping Sponge wedge
Paper Snips or Scissors
Battery Operated Tea Light from your local store
INSTRUCTIONS: Note: You can cut two sheets of paper at the same time with your Framelits which makes it easy to make a set of two.
1. Choose your patterned paper making sure there is a pattern on both sides. I have also used Vellum to make this flower. Cut your Designer Series Paper at 6″ x 12″. 2. Measure the bottom of your Framelit with the Circle Framelits to find the correct size for the bottom. Note: I skipped this step on the first one I made so you could not turn the Tea Light on and off because it was covered with paper. 😉 3. Choose the two largest Floral Frames Framelits to make your project. Lay out one Floral Frame Framelit on your paper and Magnetic Platform (or Multipurpose Platform with all Tabs closed), then center the Circle Framelit. Add your top cutting plate and cut out. Repeat with the other Floral Frames Framelit and the Circle Framelit. 4. Sponge the edges of the petals if desired. Cut down about 1″ between each petal on both flowers. Curl about 1/2″ to 3/4″ of the end of each petal using your Bone Folder. 5. Put Sticky Strip around the bottom edge of the side of your Tealight. Put the smaller flower on first, then add the larger. Attaching the paper flowers to the Tealight is not an exact process. It requires some crunching and perhaps tearing between a petal or two of the flower to get it onto the Tealight. Use Glue Dots to attach these overlapping pieces. Follow the diagram for attaching the Petals to the Tealight. Now put Sticky Strip along the bottom edge of your paper flower pressing the paper and the Sticky Strip as flat as possible. 6. Now add your Larger Flower to the Tealight following the same process as before. 7. Optional: You can add Dazzling Details, cut paper (using the same Circle Framelit) with a hole punched for the “flame”, or Glitter to add an extra touch to the top of your Tealight.
