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. This card also uses NO stamping. I know some folks out there don’t like stamping. It’s just not there thing so using dies will eliminate stamping.
Hello friends. I am in love with the Ranger Simon Hurley Lunar Pastes! So many beautiful colors and I love the metallic sheen too! Need to get more of them! I used it a stencil created from shaped dies. So much fun to use!
Hello friends. I’m bringing out an oldie but goodie from Honey Bee Stamps to make this fun St. Patrick’s Day card. I used the Honey Bee Stamps Frappe Shaker Card (which I’ve used a ton because I truly love it!) and combined it with the Lawn Fawn Lucky Clovers to make a quick card. Who doesn’t love a green drink?!
For the second card, I CASEd a card by Renata Dolezel because I loved how the greeting was bold and the focal point of the card. I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I also cut pattern paper from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Paper (discontinued) to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and 3-3/4 x 5″.
On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy add-on stampset and added a 1 x 4″ strip of the pattern paper from the top panel. I also added a clover which I colored with Copic Markers (YG25, G07 and 0 blender).
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. The doilies (30 count), ribbon (9ft), and confetti (1oz.) packages contain enough product to make several type of crafts so it’s a steal at $1.25! Ok let’s get into the making of the cards.
For the first card, I cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! Poppy Parade 8.5 X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I took one of the gift bags and fussy cut out the heart on one side and then die cut the background from the other side of the bag using the Lawn Fawn Quilted Heart Landscape Backdrop. I also cut a piece of a metallic gift bag I also purchased at the Dollar Tree to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ to back the background.
For the fourth card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 7 x 10″ and scored at 5-1/2″ to create a card base. I took one of the gift bags and cut a piece to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″. I added a sentiment piece from another gift bag to the front panel as well.
I finished the card off by adding some Nuvo Liquid Mercury Drops (discontinued).
I left the inside of the card blank and added a 1 x 5-1/2″ strip of the same gift bag.
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!!!
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.
