Heart Pivot Die cards

It has been fun to play with these new dies and I was trying to make cards that were not necessarily the usual heart theme – weddings, anniversaries etc. But of course I needed a Wedding one in there. I will continue to add to this range to show that the die can be used for a variety of themes and plan on adding a Baby one, Sympathy/Thinking of You –  along with others.

  video link is below.

The photo doesn`t really do justice to the colours here as the heart and the card are both white (with silver pattern on the heart).

I have used one of the dies from the Agatha Edges die set here to create the edge and then cut the same edge from the reverse side of the Pavlova paper used on the heart.

Femme Fatale Card Toppers – Card Ideas

Elegance!

Elegance!

I really do love these gorgeous card toppers. Just stunning and there are twelve toppers per pack so that is pretty amazing.

So…….I have been playing! The one above is a typical gate fold card and the topper goes really well with the Pavlova paper. I will list all the products I used at the bottom of the post. The gorgeous die I used behind gives the photo a real whispy look.

Short Front Card

Short Front Card

Not really sure if there is a correct name for this shaped card and so I have created my own. Short front card!! I trim a section off the right hand side of the card and the topper sits out over the edge. Gives a swing effect. Depending on what you want to have on the inside of the card that shows in the space, determines how much you cut off.

 

Centre Step Card

Centre Step Card

Love making Centre Step cards. So quick, so easy and very effective. Dress it up or use papers that speak for themselves.

Square Card

Square Card

A very simple card to make – pre embossed square card, some ribbon and lace and a gorgeous topper.

Very easy card to make! I have used the same paper as in the card above. My first time making this style card and it was “such fun”!! The photo doesn’t really show how this works and so I have added another couple. I will also try and upload a video once I have completed one as this is such a cool and quick card to make. Video now on You Tube

This shows the card as it is being opened. There is plenty of room to add more embellishments or sentiments.

This shows the card fully open.

This card will fit in a standard size envelope.

The measurements for this card are 12 inches x 5 half  inches

On the long side – score at 2,4,8,10 inches

On the short side – mark at 2 and three quarter inches and cut from this mark back up to the second score line on each side – ie the 4 inch and the 8 inch

Use the piece that you take from the top – reverse the piece and add to the bottom corners on the inside of the card. Not only does this add that extra dimension it also strengethen the card for standing.

Check out this video to see how: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/509610514056807975/  – Thanks to Donna for this demo!

Square Embossed Card

Square Embossed Card

I added a sentiment to this card which is listed above and then I had to laugh………………….she is looking at herself in the miror. Is she saying she cherishes her own friendship!! I can easily overlay another sentiment or remove this one if I choose to. No mistakes in card making, sometimes just some readjusting!!

Shimmer Sheetz and Elizabeth Craft Designs

While this is a new product to me and the Online store, by checking out You Tube, Elizabeth Craft Designs and Pinterest you can see that this has been around for a  little while now. So go check those places out for real inspiration.

I learned some lessons while playing with the product and also by being put in touch with Els from Elizabeth Craft – so helpful.

As I say on my Facebook page, I am a rather awkward crafter. Because I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis forever…………………well since I was 16, my hands don’t always do what I want them to do but usually I manage to cover up my mistakes. You did know didn’t you that there are NO MISTAKES in crafting, you really did want that flower or that bit of lace right where it is. Shhhhh, nobody knows what is underneath!!

I should stop waffling and show you what I have created so far.

Embossed and inked and..........

Embossed and inked and……….

So simple to run the Shimmer Sheetz through the Cuttlebug using an Embossing Folder. It worked a treat and shimmers and sparkles right before your eyes. I have to tell you none of the photos do these products justice!! The effect is really quite stunning!

Next I tried the sanding, to bring out the silver core. Mmmmm….. well I should have laid it flat on the table and tried that but of course I didn’t, I balanced it on my hand. Don’t ask me why. Maybe I just needed to learn the lesson that you could learn from me!!  So place it on a flat surface when you sand the raised embossing.

Then I got out my Staz On black stamp pad and ran that over the embossing. Elizabeth Craft have a You Tube video showing this and it looks amazing. Because my Staz On needs a bit more life (ink) added into it, it didn’t quite hit the mark but I could see the potential there as I hope you also can. You certainly will if you check out You Tube etc.

I decided to cut the embossed piece into four uneven size to get the effect I wanted. The sheets are 5″ x 12″ and I wanted to get three designs from the sheet and our NZ cards are deeper than the 5inches hence my reason for stretching out the design  by placing it over the black card to fill the front of the card. A bit of black lace cut with an Anastasia Cheery Lynn die and some pearl bling and we have an almost finished creation. It just needs a sentiment, then again…..maybe it doesn’t.

Another……….

Red Metallic and Peel Off Ornaments.

Red Metallic and Peel Off Ornaments.

 

No too many errors in my third play. One of the bows is a bit scew but I can adjust that. I have placed the ornament peel offs onto clear acetate and then used Dufex brush markers to colour the acetate from the back. There are so many ways you can use the Peel Offs, not just these but the others on the store. Colour them in, place foil behind or a pattern paper, leave them as they are, use water colour pencils or markers when you have placed them on water colour paper. The ideas are limitless.  The Wishing you a Merry Christmas on this card is a Doodey Transparent Peel Off sticker and once again, what ever you place it over will show through, or of course you can colour it in as I have done on the next card.

Copper Magic!

Copper Magic!

 

I saw a Christmas card somewhere, some time ago that was all done in brown tones. It was stunning! When I saw this copper Shimmer Sheetz I thought – now that would work! The effect of this copper one once again is really quite something. As you see I have used the Doodey Peel Off again for the sentiment and used two of the Elizabeth Craft Design Ornaments in the Gold. You can get these in Black and Silver as well. Silver is in stock and the black is about to be ordered.

My mistake on this card? I was a bit heavy handed with the Peel Off and pulled it off the sheet as I would a smaller Peel off or a Transparent one and the longer ornament is a little out of shape. Why am I showing/telling you this? Well whoever gets this card won’t know that it isn’t supposed to look like this, so I’m not telling them……..but also you can learn from my mistake. Els said either put the sticker on the table upside down and place your paper over this or “make your fingers a little bit wet. That way it is really easy to handle the peel off.’s”. Simple when you know how. Also, I just used a border piece of Peel Off for the string but you could use ribbon, twine, sparkle thread.

Tulip design on Shimmer Sheetz.

Tulip design on Shimmer Sheetz.

I just used some small pieces left over to make these next two cards. I laid the tulip over the green and the Turquoise piece and cut around. That is just black card stock in the background that I ran through the Cuttlebug with an embossing folder. I love the stain glass look of these black outlines.

Tulips from...........

Tulips from………..

You can also see a variation of colour in the green stem on this one but still the photos do not really show the full effect. The pictures of the actual sheets will give you a better idea of the effect.

I have also used some Washi tape on this last card. Washi tape? What is that? It is a Japanese invented sticky back tape which is either transparent or fabric, comes in a range of designs – florals, checks, spots, plains etc. and is about to be added to our store. In the meantime feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding this.

The Shimmer Sheetz come in packs of three of the same colour. I am happy to swap the packs around so that you get three different sheetz of your choosing in the pack but you would need to either contact me via the Online store http://www.cardandscrapbookingsupplies.co.nz/contact_us.php or leave a message on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Card-and-Scrapbooking-Supplies-NZ/197402113631816. I will be adding to the colour range so keep checking back or if you are an NZ resident let me know if there is a particular colour you are looking for.

SHIMMER SHEETZ ARE ALSO AMAZING WHEN USED FOR JEWELLERY. Check out links below.

6x Card Ideas using Silver Fairy Card Toppers by Hobby House

Card creations by Jane

I shared a few of Jane`s layouts a few days ago and will add some more over the next day or so but for today check out her lovely card creations.

I admire the work of people who are great at colouring in stamps and here you see delightful examples.

Celebrate Today

 
what a great card idea – the reflection in the water is just lovely.
 

For You

 Adding the moss and twigs adds a real 3 dimensional effect here.

Ducks in a Row

Just a taste – more to come!!
 
Thanks Jane. I am sure you have inspired others to get those stamps out!
