Monkey heartfelt Card...

hello!  I hope you all have been staying busy crafting! I have been having fun with these monkeys...this is the 3rd project with these stamps and dies. I hope you can find some inspiration in my simple cards... no flowers again!

Products used:

HCPC - 3779 Monkey Antics Cling Stamp
HCD1 - 7134 Monkey Antics Die Set
HCPC - 3780 Relaxin'Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCPC - 3777 Palm Tree & Monkeys Cling Stamps
HCP1 - 7132 Palm Tree & Monkeys Die Set'
Monkeying Around paper collection

Other products used Spellbinders Nestabilities labels twenty-two, white and black card stock, to color the palm tree, monkeys and leaves - Memento "Olive Grove, Espresso Truffel and Toffee Crunch"

Cut the card base from the white paper card stock using the Nestabilities die cut. Make sure you set the die just a little bit over the edge so it cuts a card base. Fold top part of the card in half, this will create a sort of Z card.  

Now from the paper collection cut 2 shape panels, 1 from the white card stock and 1 from the black card stock. Add one of the panels to the inside of the card, then cut another panel from the smaller die from white card stock and center this onto the card.

Cut one of the sentiments from the paper collection, I used "enjoy" and attache it to the upper corner of the panels.

Now, cut the black and white panels in half and adhere them so that they give the one panel from the collection a "layered" look.
Next, stamp, color and die cut the monkeys, bananas and palm tree and adhere them to the center of the card panels. 

You're done, quick and fun.

Heartfelt Wednesday... a big card this time...

HI!! ohhh you are going to love this Woodlands collection! This week I worked with the cottage...its soo cute and there are endless possibilities on what to create...just go check out the other talented ladies in the design team!  but first look at my card ... lol
This was fun to create...

here are the supplies and instructions...
Products used:

This is a big card; the base is 5x7 made from white cardstock.
1. Die cut the outer frame from the Nestabilities die also from the white card stock. This particular die cut set, will only cut the intricate parts and the center, I had to fussy cut the outer edges to get the frame. [I didn't have the outer die to do this with]. Use this same die on a sheet from paper collection, I used blue, you will only use the inside of this die cut.

2. Die cut the cute cottage from the paper collection; there is a brick themed sheet that works really well for this project. Die cut the roof from a contrasting color and adhere it to the cottage.

6. Outline the card with the flowers and foliage and add your sentiment on the opposite side. I chose, "Friendships in bloom", it's pre-printed on the paper collection.
Add flat back beads to the flower centers and stickles and you're done.

Heartfelt Note Cards and Envelopes

yay..Wednesday again...and again I have a very simple Heartfelt Creation project.  This time I made 3 quick note cards with envelopes.  This type of project is fun and easy to make and so handy to have note cards ready.

The following is are the instructions and supply list...

3 Notecards with Envelopes

Products Used:

HCD1-7126 Wildwood Cottage Darlings Die Sets

Other products used, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 1, Stickles, Whites and light blue card stock, Recollections light pink flat back beads, markers Copic E00 and E11 for skin color on the fairies, RV00 and RV113 for the dresses, 009 Honey Yellow for the fairies hair, "Mowed Lawn"- Tim Holtz distress.

Hello, these instructions are for 3 note cards, with envelopes.

The card base is 4x4 made from the white card stock.

Cut 3 from the largest of the Spellbinders Nestablilites labels 1 out of light blue card stock, 3 from the next size down out of the Wildwood cottage paper collection, and 3 from the next size down also from the color collections. I chose some pretty pink. Layer these on top of each other, you should have 3 layers panels.

Now stamp, color and die cut one of each of the adorable fairy images, add Stickles for that added touch.
Adhere a fairy in each of the panels and adhere it all to the card base.

From the paper collection, die cut 3 sentiments...and add to each note card.

I made the envelopes using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, there are many video on Youtube showing you how to use this tool.  These cards are 4x4 so the envelopes will use a 6 7/8 x 6 7/8 square sheet of white card stock.

After each envelope was complete, I stamped the front with the cute mushroom stamp in "Mowed Lawn"- Tim Holtz distress ink.

The cards fit perfect in each envelope.

That's it, quick, simple, cute note cards.

Thanks for watching... and as always...
