It’s o”fish”al!

Today, I’m sharing an ocean-themed card in tropical colors with another punny Reverse Confetti sentiment paired with Confetti Cuts.

To begin, I cut the waves with the Doin’ the Wave Confetti Cuts set in three cardstock colors and layered them together. The heart was cut with Love Note. (I cut a string of hearts with the die then put the cut piece back into the die and cut again, which cleanly cut off one of the hearts.) The fish were cut on my Silhouette. The heart and fish are attached to the waves with dimensional adhesive.

I’m a big fan of red and gray together. The addition of the pink and coral was a combination I’ve never considered!

I combined one of the sentiments from the Reverse Confetti Sugary Sweet Sentiments set with a soda bottle shape I cut on my Silhouette and embellished with hearts from the Donut You Know Confetti Cuts set. The large heart on the bottle was cut with Love Note. I cut a few hearts with the die then put the cut piece back into the die and cut again, which cleanly cut off one of the hearts.

Penny Black Simplicity – Love Balloons

header

Today, I’m sharing a Valentine’s card created with two Penny Black dies – 51-052 texting and 51-004 uplifting.

JMSimplicityJan2015

I cut various shades of pink and red cardstock with the heart die from the 51-004 uplifting set. I cut white cardstock with the love die, in the 51-052 texting set, twice. I attached white thread to the back of the heart die cuts with double-sided tape, leaving the covering on the top until I had the die cuts laid out on the panel in the desired design. Hearts on the top of a cluster were attached with dimensional adhesive for depth. When the hearts had been attached, I gathered the thread and bundled them with another thread. I glued the bundle together with Glossy Accents. Once dry, I attached the love sentiment over the knot and thread bundle.

 

Colour Me Striking

Today, I’m playing along with the Colour Me Challenge.

ColourMe

Even though the color scheme feels “Fourth of July” (or any other patriotic holiday) I thought it would be fun for a Valentine’s Day card. With one of the punny sentiments from Reverse Confetti Sugary Sweet Sentiments set as my starting point, I cut two suckers with my Silhouette and decorated them with hearts cut from Love Note, keeping in the color scheme.

The bow was cut using a die in the Tagged Tote Confetti Cuts set.

I’m playing along with ColourQ #275 with a Reverse Confetti sentiment stamp and RC Confetti Cuts.

I really like stretching my color preferences with these challenges. The navy and pink combination feels preppy to me (Lily Pulitzer), and it was those two colors I wanted to use most on the card.

I added accents of the Wisteria Wonder with the hearts and the tag circle. I cut the hearts by first cutting five hearts with the Love Note die, then putting three hearts into the die and cutting again, which cleanly cut off two of the hearts. The arrow was cut in half and taped to the back of the tag.

I’m playing along with a floral arrangement stamped and cut with the recently-released Love Blooms stamp set and corresponding Confetti Cuts.

SFYTT-Jan2015-JM

I heat-embossed the sentiment from Forever Fall on a banner cut with Tag Me, tucking that under my floral arrangement, stamped in colors to coordinate with the patterned-paper panel.

CAS(E) this Sketch #106

Today, I have a card to share for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge where I’m a guest artist.
CTS106

For my card, I paired die-cut stars with a heat-embossed Stampin’ Up sentiment.

CASEthisSketchJan2015

I was inspired by the geometrical feeling of the crisscrossed “x” shapes. I cut the stars in three different shades of blue to create an ombré effect.

Reverse Confetti Love Note

Today I’m sharing a CAS Valentine’s Day card combining Reverse Confetti die cuts and sentiment.

Valentines-Jan-LoveNotes

Using the Love Note Confetti Cuts set, I cut the heart strings in four different colors, two times each. I adhered the same-colored hearts together with 2-way glue and added them to the rounded rectangle cut with Documented, on which I’d stamped the sentiment from Crushin’. I adhered the rounded rectangle to a white card base.Valentines-Jan-LoveNotes-closeup

Penny Black Simplicity – Tree of Love

header

Penny Black has recently released fabulous dies perfect for Valentine’s Day creations. I created a card with 51-100 Tree of Love as the centerpiece.

TreeofLove

I cut the Tree of Love out of white, red and pink cardstock. With 2-way glue, I attached the pink and red hearts to the white hearts on the tree. The sentiment from  Penny Black’s 51-093 Heartfelt was cut several times for additional depth. I added two birds, cut from gold paper with 51-094 Tweets, to the tree, attaching them with dimensional adhesive. Be suere to check out the Loves and Friendship release here.
