Reverse Diamond Heart Card

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I don’t have much planned at all this weekend, which is really nice. Hopefully I can get a bit of crafty time in over the next couple of nights though.

Remember my post from a couple of days ago with the diamond heart? If not, just scroll down or click here. Well today’s card is another diamond heart one, but this time it uses the negative pieces that were cut from the first one. Rather than throw them away, I decided to create a reverse diamond heart of the first one I made.

Nested Facet Heart Card

To do this, I first electronically cut another diamond heart from plain white cardstock to create the heart border panel for my card. After creating my card base and adhering the heart border panel down to it using some adhesive foam, I placed the cut out heart back into the card, as a guide for where I should stick the gold glitter negatives.

Once I glued all the negative pieces down, I removed the cut out heart/guide and adhered my sentiment which I cut from some matching glitter paper, to the centre of the heart, and it was all done.

I hope all of this makes sense? If not, just let me know and hopefully I can explain it in more detail for you.

Well enjoy your weekend everyone, and I’ll see you soon with another card share.

Book Giveaway!

Hello Hello!

Just a really quick post today with a little giveaway for you!

My hubby ordered me a copy of The Ultimate Handbook for Paper Crafters as a gift, but what he didn’t know was that I already have a copy!  Anyway the thought was there, but rather than having to ship it all the way back to the US, I thought I’d do a random giveaway to my readers.

PC Handbook

All you have to do is just leave me a comment on this post, and I will then randomly choose one lucky winner and announce it here on my blog on Friday, 18 July, so you have one week to enter. This is open to everyone, including international readers.

Good luck!

Diamonds & Hearts

Hi Friends

How has your week been so far? Mine has been busy as usual despite all the freezing weather we are finally getting now. I love winter, so I’m glad it has finally decided to fully show up here!

Before I share my card with you all, I’ve just noticed that this card again features glitter! I don’t know what it is but it seems all the cards I have been creating lately tend to have some form of glitter on them! Lol I swear it’s not intentional, I only just noticed it! You’ll all have to bare with me though as the next couple I have to share in the coming days also feature more glitter!

I created today’s card for a recent publication call for cards featuring the new trend of “facets” but unfortunately it wasn’t picked up. When I hear the word facet I think of diamonds so I created yet another love themed card featuring a die cut diamond heart.

Facet Heart Card

Using my Silhouette Cameo machine, I electronically die cut the diamond heart from some gold glitter cardstock using the Heart Diamond Filigree shape I purchased from the online store.

I then also electronically cut the sentiment from my card base using the LD Charming Bold font and adhered some matching glitter cardstock to the back of it. After running the diamond heart through my Xyron Creation Station, I stuck it down at an angle on my card base.

Well that’s all from me for today, so enjoy the rest of your day.

Angel Puppy

Hello All

The card I’m sharing with you today was a really sad one to make unfortunately. I made this card for one of the sweetest people I know, and a treasured friend, Joy, who sadly lost her beautiful fur baby a few weeks ago.

Our pets are special members of our families, so I wanted to create a card to let her know my love and thoughts are with her during this hard time.

Angel Puppy Card

The background was created using some translucent texture paste and the Starry Nights stencil by Memory Box. After I stencilled on the stars I sprinkled them with fine white glitter to give them a bit of sparkle. While the stars were drying I stamped my sentiment onto some vellum using watermark ink before heat embossing it in white.

I don’t have anything in my stash relating to dogs so I used my new Silhouette Cameo machine for the very first time to create the cute puppy. I found the image in the Silhouette Online Store, as well as one for the halo, then I cute the puppy 3 times from different shades of brown cardstock, so that I could assemble the dog with different coloured elements. Here is a close up of the puppy.

Once the puppy was assembled, I glued on some googly eyes and then electronically cut out the gold halo. I then stuck all the elements onto the starry background panel, before gluing that down to my card base.

It’s time for me to go and grab some lunch, but thank you for stopping by today.
