A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! I am starting to finally get caught up on all the extra cards that I had to post! The pickings are getting slimmer for cards using the same dies but today's card posts both show the Heart Spray in action though. I used the Love Perspective die to cut an aperture in a piece of coconut white card. I used the smaller plaque to cut the "and kisses" below it. I made a piece of Caught in Crystal using Pixie Powders to show through the cut out areas on the card. Using a piece of acetate, I poured Cosmic Lacquer on it and sprinkled Midnight Blue, Peacock Green and Aqua Lagoon Pixies on it then added a piece of scrunched up white tissue paper over it and set it aside to dry over night. I used part of it behind the cut out areas and then cut the Exquisite Poppies out of the rest of the piece. I added a thin frame using the Double Pierced Noble Rectangles dies, raised for dimension. I added the poppies in the lower corner and accented them with white heart sprays. The card was completed with a white on white mat. The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8" in size. Scroll down for card number two.
Card number two is a shaker card which uses the fall away pieces from the Heart Spray (so all of those from the card above did not go to waste!) I cut the Triple Line Best Wishes three times out of a piece of coconut white card. I glued each of the lines to a piece of clear acetate. I added mounting foam to the back edges of the acetate to raise it, I added all the hearts to the acetate and then place a piece of blue dusk card over the back to seal them in. I used the Double Pierced Noble Rectangles to make a multi layer frame out of white and blue dusk card and added it to the front. I accented with Poppies again, but this time they were cut from Blue Dusk card covered with sticky adhesive sheet and glittered with Iced Snow. I accented the with white Heart Sprays. Blue and white mats and layers were used to complete the card. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.
