Individual of my faves.  Some I just can't get enough of.  I want to figure out every little trick I can do with those dies.  Well in this case a set of 3 dies, Caprice Heart dies from Birch Press Designs.  These dies are perfectly symmetrical from front to back so you can actually layer them in the front and the back as well.  Really pretty for banners and ornaments for a Christmas tree.  I hope Birch Press comes out with more of these types of designs soon :)  But I digress from the task at hand, Valentine's cards for my spouse and daughter.  Here we go :)


4 1/4" x 11" 100 lb white cover card stock folded in half
White, Pink, and Red (or any color you choose really) scraps to cut out 2 hearts of each color

This beautiful die set makes the perfect Valentine's Day card a breeze and is also wonderful when you want to just send your love to someone.  After you cut out the hearts in each of the colors then go about adhering each of the hearts together.  I start with the middle heart and put adhesive on its back and then adhere it to the bottom heart.  I just use simple dotted tape runner from tomboy but wet glue would work as well (be careful to not put too much of course).  I then put adhesive on the top heart and attach it to the middle middle on bottom hearts.

After the two hearts were completely assembled, I positioned them on my card front, which was already stamped with the Happy Valentine's Day stamp from Lawn Fawn's Celebration Scripty Sayings set, to assess how they would fit.  I then carefully picked them up being sure to hold them in position and then snipped the top corner of the bottom heart.  Some more Tombow dotted adhesive on the back and I adhered them to the front of the card carefully tucking the cut heart up next to the whole heart.

I added some interest to the card with some tiny hearts from Lawn Fawn's Happy Wedding set and used the whimsical words from the Hero Arts Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia on the inside to top off the love.

I made the card pictured below for my daughter.  I switched it up a bit so it would appeal to a 20 something year old.  She loved it!  Comment below if you would like to see instructions on this card too :)

  1. Really nice looking cards. I LOVE those heart dies! I really like the look of them stacked. And I think it is clever how you clipped the one to nestle the other into it. I'm sure your loved ones loved them.

Baby Cards w/ Sunny Studios Quilted Hexagons Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks

Welcome it's great to see you :) I am not often in the need of baby cards so this weeks card is particularly excited for several reasons. First I am waiting for the birth of a new little niece or nephew (and I am guessing the last one).  I will be traveling to Minnesota for the birth....Yay!

On the way I will be stopping in Greendale, WI to visit Gina K. and Kathy Racoosin and participate in The Coloring Challenge Road Trip.  So much fun :)  Because I will be traveling I took the opportunity to make these adorable baby cards so that I would have them on hand for the special arrival.

I had this super cool set that came out in July from Sunny Studio Stamps called Quilted Hexagons.

My grandma was a huge quilter and I have many friends who enjoy it as well.  But me, I'm a stamper, so this set is perfect.  The idea of actually quilting raises my anxiety about 3000% but stamps are my happy place.  This particular set has so many elements to create anything from and old fashioned …

Fall Tea Cup Pop Up Card Featuring Hero Arts Infinity Dies

I love Hero Arts, how about you? :)  I had so much fun creating this card this week.  It started with Hero Arts Infinity Dies and my love of anything to do with Tea and ended with my quest to make a stand up card that someone would want to display and not be so ready to throw away.   There is a video below showing how I created this pop up card, a diagram below that for what I like to call my paper spring, and below that handy links to all of the products I used to make this cutie :) 
This weekend I'm heading to Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Gina and her lovely shop.  One of my happy places.  See you soon Gina :)  Is everyone getting ready for the holidays....I'm starting to itch to make Christmas cards.  I'm guessing I will start at Village Paper and Ink this weekend.
