Pre Diecut cards and 3D Embellishments

It’s been a while but these quick cards made using the Hearty Crafts Luxury Cards and their 3D embellishments make card making easy when time is pressured. Some Peel Off stickers, glittered dots, Polka Dot Gemstones and you have a simple but elegant card.

A range of Christmas Cards using a variety of dies, some with Shimmer Sheetz

New products in the store just motivate me to make cards that are simple and easy for any skill level to put together. My theme this year has tended to be just two or three colours to keep it all very easy and time efficient. I always promise myself that I will start early to make my own cards but for the past few years that just hasn’t happened and I find myself rushing close to post time to get them done.

Some of the products are not on the store yet. I have an issue with the admin side of the store and cannot load new products or accept Visa payments. Hopefully this will be sorted soon but in the meantime any questions regarding products can be asked on the Facebook page – see below for link. Purchases can also be made Offline by paying direct into the Business Bank Account once you have been invoiced.

So enough already. Here they are!!!

Just added this one today 29th Dec…………………..

Nativity Card Ideas

I discovered this beautiful die while looking for something else entirely. It is obviously very popular as I had to back order it and I see it is again Out of Stock at my distributors. Still have a few in our Online store.

Anyway, just a few cards I enjoyed putting together during my first “Play”.

I have used a sheet from the Wild Rose Studio Paper Pack – Antique Library. Love that pack and I think it works well here as it has gradients of clour so that the nativity scene sits in the lighter shades and almost gives a glow!

Peace

Peace

 and a different look by first embossing the card with small hearts (from my stash) but Swiss Dots would also work.

Love, Joy and Peace

 Still trying to decide if this one below is my favourite so far. I think it is!

Tattered Lace die – Ornamental Rose

This new die is simply gorgeous. I keep imagining all the different ways it could be used. Just as  a start, here are a few cards. They are so simple and yet it is easy to get an elegant creation from this die.

 Black goes with almost anything. Yellow is not a colour I use often but this combination of embossing folder, dies and ribbon work well on this yellow background.

Silhouette Card ideas using one theme.

 Using just one theme, black and white, and my Heritage Cricut cartridge and two different embossing folds – Swiss Dots and Heart Dots both Cuttlebug folders I have created a series of cards – similar but different! The oval frame is from the Wild Rose Studio – Oval Frame Die set.  Unfortunately I have sold out of this but will be getting more in. A gorgeous useful die.

Peel Off Transfer Sheet – A new Project

I have enjoyed using the transfer sheets as it is great to be able to use all pieces from the Peel Off Sheets. Previously the pieces left on the sheet were just used as bling bits on projects or given to the grandchildren to play with but now the whole design can be used to create two projects from the one design and giving you twice the amount of usage for your money. I have made a few projects now with the transfer sheet and at this stage have only needed to use one sheet as they can be used over and over again – 10 to 15 times.

So this little project below shows just how you can get two cards from the one design and so easy to use.

 

Peel Off Transfer sheet. Can be used up to 15 times.
