Hello friends. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Here is a fun way to make a shaker card. I used the Lawn Fawn Lucky Clovers dies to create windows for this fun shaker card background.

I added gold sequins, Martha Stewart Yellow Iridiscent Star Glitter and Queen and Company Yellow Diamond Toppings and backed the panel with a piece of patter paper from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″.

I die cut the sentiment from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) and 2x from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# 8-1/2 x 11″ Black Cardstock using Stampin’ Up! Word Wished Dies (retired) and stacked them to give the sentiment dimension.

Dollar Store Crafts: Easy Valentine’s Day Cards Using Gift Bags

Hello friends. I decided to challenge myself and make Valentine’s Day cards using Dollar Tree products and a few of my own stamps and dies. My Dollar Tree doesn’t have an abundance of craft supplies like stamps but they have enough that you can create some fun crafts. Three of the cards use only Dollar Tree products.

I found some gift bags in the Valentine’s Day section that I used to replace my pattern paper as well as some doilies, 5/8″ ribbon, and confetti I used to decorate my cards.

Dollar Store Crafts: Valentine’s Day Floral Arrangement

Hello friends. Valentine’s Day is next month and we all want to make cute decor and gifts, right? Times are tough right now, everything is ridiculously expensive so why not save some money on crafts?!? I made this cute floral decor piece using only Dollar Tree products.

Everything you see in this post except the Fabri-tac glue can be found at Dollar Tree. You can use hot glue in place of the Fabri-tac which can be found at the Dollar Tree for sure! I cannot be trusted with hot glue (second degree burns on fingers are not fun :)) so I won’t be using that!!!

Let me show you how quick and easy this was to make. The supplies you will need are: a candy bucket or tin pail (any small container will work here), 3 pink and 1 red bundle of artificial carnations, floral picks, floral foam, lace ribbon and green floral moss.

I cut the floral foam down with a knife to fit inside the pail. This foam is very soft and easy to trim down. You literally can just shave the edges with a knife. You can glue down the foam to the bottom of the pail if you like. I did not need to because once I added the moss it secured it in place.

Next, I figured out how tall I wanted my flowers and trimmed them using wire cutters. Don’t try to cut these with scissors; it will not work well and you may hurt your hands (ask me how I know?:) ) I seperated out the stems so I could arrange them better. It’s much harder if you leave them in the bundle. I place them into the foam and fluffled them out. You can easily bend the stems so you can spread your flowers out better to create a full arrangement.

Next I inserted the Valentine’s Wooden Glitter Heart Picks. I used 5 but add how many you would like. I find that odd numbered items just tend to be more visually appealing. To cover all the foam and also add more stability, I added some Floral Garden Reindeer Moss inside the pail.

Lastly I glued on some of the Heart Ribbon Lace around the pail.

For more stenciled backgrounds using dies check out my previous post.

Multipurpose Platform, 2.) Cutting Plate, 3.) Emboss mat, 4.) Paper. 5.) Die face down, and 6.) Cutting Plate. Check your machines guide for the proper snadwich. I also added additonal paper to deepen the embossing a bit.

Create Embossed Backgrounds Using Your Dies

Hello friends. It’s time to make some holiday cards. Starting things off with some super easy cards using dies to emboss backgrounds. It’s a super easy technique and produces some really cool results. You can use the embossed or debossed side as well.

Easy Masculine Birthday Card feat. Lawn Fawn’s Giant Happy Birthday

Hi friends. I needed a birthday card for my dad and even though my dad is completely fine with whatever type of card he receives I wanted to keep it kinda masculine bit modern. So I chose a geometric stencil, modeling paste and a few distress inks and made this easy background. Let me show you how easy it is to make!

For this card, I cut a piece of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# Blue Violet to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4 x 5-1/4″. I colored it by ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks. I used Broken China, Mowed Lawn, Antique Linen, and Villainous Poison. I sprayed water on the background and wiped it off.

I added white Modeling Paste with a palette knife using the Catherine Pooler Gradient Diamond Stencil. For the sentiment, I diecut Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock using the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Birthday die. I diecut it 3x and stacked them for some dimension.

I finished the card by adding some Ebony Black Nuvo Drops.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest to 4 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs Young at Heart Stampset (Part of a Stamp of Approval Collection – discontinued), with Ranger Tim Holtz Broken China Distress oxide Ink and added the same pattern to the bottom of the card using Catherine Pooler Gradient Diamond Stencil and Broken China, Mowed Lawn, and Villainous Poison Distress Oxide Inks.
