Birthday Roses

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful birthday card with 3D flowers. 

As you might already know, I'm a big fan of Heartfelt Creations flower dies. For these flowers and buds, I used the Tulip Time dies. This die set even has a die for the stalk of the flower. I shaped the flowers with flower shaping tools and used hot glue gun to adhere the layers of the flowers and buds. It makes a difference. I cut a few leaves using the leaf die from the Delicate Asters die set. The beautiful decorative piece on the right, in pink and white is cut using the Decorative Medallion die set, also from HFC. I was so surprised when I was able to cut such a delicate intricate piece in 1 pass on my SNAP machine!! Just amazing!! I arranged the flowers the way I wanted them to be and added some white pollen to the spray. The sentiment is from Inspired By Stamping. 


What do you think? Let me know in the comments!! Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day.

DT: Baptism Favors

 



 Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made baptism favors for my Godson's special day.
I used the following materials and dies:

My SNAP for the die cuts
Jane Davenport Gold Squid Ink
Heartfelt Creations cross dies
CTMH sunburst stamp
BoBunny cross dies
Tattered Lace tag die
Rosary and other dies, I can remember right now.
Xyron stickers maker
Gold DecoFoil
Laminating machine
Brother toner printer
Michaels cardstock in blue and pearlescent white
whole puncher


Steps:
1- I printed the baptism details and then run the cardstock through the laminating machine using DecoFoil to gild the printed cards.
2- I die cut the tags and made punched the wholes
3- I die cut a bunch of crosses from different companies and run the die cuts through the Xyron sticker maker.
4- I stamped the sunburst with Gold ink and added a die cut cross on each stamped sunburst
5. Finally, I attached the tags using gold thread to the printed ribbon bows for each Cross favor for each family.


I also made some candy favor boxes for the children as well:
I stamped some Dollar Tree paper favor bags with the sunburst and added a die cut cross to match with the adult's favors. Finally, I added the blue tags to each bag.


I was able to make all the baptism favors the night before the baptism and surprised my "comadre" with them.

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me

Lace & Daffodils

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful Spring card with daffodils and lace. 


I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Creations stamp set called Daffy Daffodils, colored it with copics and cut it out. I die cut the lace die from Altenew on the front panel of an A2 card base. I used the same die to cut a lace out of yellow card stock. I used it to mat the image panel. I also die cut the "Hello" using the Altenew Fancy Hello die on a black shimmer card stock and added it on to the card. I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Statement Flowers stamp set, cut it out and added it to the card. I added a few Nuvo drops in black color to accent it.


For the inside, I decided to add a piece of lace as well, to complement the card front. I die cut the same lace die in yellow card stock and added it on the inside.


I used the SNAP machine to die cut all the dies and I must tell you - I was able to die cut the intricate lace die in 1 pass. How amazing is that!! What do you think of this card? Please do let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

DT: Baby Boy Card

 


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a congratulations on your baby boy card.

I used the following materials and dies:

I cut the background strip from paper wishes printed paper (4), and stamped a "congratulations" tag on the same printed paper the inside the card sentiment (1), which I later die cut using the coordinating die from CTMH (2). Later, I cut the feet and the "baby boy" twice, once in card stock and once in printed paper using my SNAP machine. The baby boy sentiment had a congratulations sentiment in-between baby and boy, which I cut out.
I added the background strip to the card base and paper pieced the feet and sentiment adding it to the card using 3D dots for more dimension. For the inside, I added one of the "baby" sentiments to the congratulations tag. Added some twine and glued it to the inside of the card.



This is a very easy, quick and CAS card.

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me

Mother's Day Tulips

Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a Spring Mother's Day card, with a vase full of Tulips.


I have this Heartfelt Creations - Tulip Vase & Fillers stamp and die set for quite some time and was planning to use it for a Spring card. I stamped the tulips, leaves and vase with Brutus Monroe inks for no-line coloring. I colored the images with Copics and die cut them using the matching dies on my SNAP machine. Then I colored the edges with Copic also - this takes only a few minutes, but makes a lot of difference. I arranged the flowers in the vase and adhered them. I die cut the frame using Royal Elegance Frames on kraft card stock to frame the vase. I decided to make an easel card, so I took an A2 card base and folded the front in half. I adhered the lower part of the frame to the lower part of the card base. For the stopper, I die cut another frame from the same die set and stamped the sentiment from the Verve stamp set. I adhered it with foam tape on the inside of the card.




How do you like this card? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

DT: Lip Balm Holders for St. Valentine's Day

 


 Dear Scrappers,


This is Veronica, from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing my post for Craftwell:
For this post, I made a lip balm holders as gifts for my children's teachers for St. Valentine's day:



I used the following materials and dies:


First, I die cut all the holders using the Sizzix dies and used another die set from Sizzix for the embellishments and bookmark.

In short: I stamped the delicate mandala shapes using the CTMH stamps. Then, I laminated the delicate mandalas after stamping a sentiment in the back using the "We are good together" stamp set (I used the "You are Loved" stamp). Later I cut them out using their thin cut dies. I did the same with the tags and "smile" sentiment (I stamped my children's name in the back of the tag) for the other end of the bookmark:



I attached both sides with a foot of ribbon and tied them with knots:


I used my SNAP and Cut'n'Boss to cut everything.

I hope you enjoyed my quick and easy project and please make sure to visit my blog for more inspiration and to follow me.

Enjoy the freezing days


My kiddos playing in the backyard this morning. A total "normal" February morning in Texas...

Hello Pansies!

Hello everyone!! Hope you are staying warm and comfortable this week! This is Berina here today, with another Pansy card - can you just say that I love those Pansy dies from Altenew? 

Let's start with die cutting. I die cut all the parts of the petals - for the yellow part, I used yellow card stock and for the purple part, I die cut them in white card stock and colored them with Copics. I tried 2 different combinations of color for the pansies - I searched in Google to see different colors of Pansies and decided to go with these 2. I adhered the different petal layers together with glue and shaped certain parts of the petals to give it a dimensional look. I die cut the leaf layers in white card stock and adhered them with glue. I arranged them on an A2 card base to see how well it looks. I decided to add some soft inking along the edges with Hero Arts Orchid ink. I adhered all the flowers and leaves with glue and a few foam dots to give a bit of dimension to this flower arrangement. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Altenew Statement Flowers stamp set. 

In case you haven't seen it yet, here is my previous post using the same Pansy dies. This die set can seem a little intimidating at first, with 10 different die cut pieces for 1 flower. But trust me, with my SNAP machine, it was a breeze to die cut them all repeatedly for the 5 flowers - I did all the die cutting together at one time and then did all the coloring together. 

How do you like my card today? Please do let me know in the comments below. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Beautiful Day Pansies

 Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a beautiful floral card, with lovely pansies.

I used the 3D Pansy die from Altenew to die cut the flower pieces on a piece of white card stock using my SNAP machine and colored the pieces with Copic markers. I followed the layering guide to adhere the pieces. I used tiny foam squares in certain places instead of adhering it completely flat. This gives a little bit of dimension to the flowers. You can see the dimension here.

I die cut the leaves also from white card stock and colored the pieces with Copics and adhered the layers with glue. For the background, I die cut the Moroccan Mosaic cover die on yellow cardstock. I adhered it on to an A2 card base. I adhered the flowers and leaves on top of it. For the sentiment, I wanted to do something small so that the flowers remain as the focal point. I stamped this sentiment from the Statement Flowers stamp set by Altenew and adhered it with foam squares. I added a few sequins from Doodles Paper Playground.


How do you like my card today? Do you like pansies? Do let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by today. Have a great day!

Thanks a Bunch

  Hello everyone!! This is Berina here today, with a simple thank you card. 

I used the Sizzix Hot Air Balloon Die on pattern papers from Brutus Monroe to make the hot air. This die has become one of my favorites - it can be used for a lot of different types of cards. I've made quite a few with it so far. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Verve stamps. I adhered a piece of grey card stock on an A2 card base and matted it with a white card stock. I adhered the hot air balloon next and stamped the sentiment. Love my Cut'n'Boss for all the die cutting!

How do you like my card today? Please do let me know. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.
