An i {heart} papers Card [Many Thanks]

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a tiny card (3″x3″) that I created using some products that I bought at the i {heart} papers store…

I used patterned papers from a 6×6 paper pad collection called Be Different by Fancy Pants, and cute stamp set called You are a Hoot by Lawn Fawn (along with its matching dies.) That owl is super cute, don’t you think? Additionally I used a sentiment by Paper Smooches (Word Salad), wiggly eyes and Glossy Accents over the sentiment (I love Glossy Accents!)

As you all know, the i {heart} papers store is closing and their merchandise is currently on liquidation, so don’t forget to visit them to see what great products are still available. The current discount is 50% off! Use coupon code BYEIHP at checkout.

i {heart} papers News + A PS Card

 Hi!

As you know, I was invited by the i {heart} papers store to be a Guest Designer for the months of December and January, and I am very thankful with Kate because of that. Today Kate made the announcement about her decision to close the i {heart} papers store, and after reading the reasons she has,  I completely understand her.  I know the craft industry is challenging and it is always changing, particularly nowadays with the ups and downs of the economy.  I really wish her the best on her new endeavors. Please be sure to stop by the i {heart} papers blog and read her complete announcement…

Anyway I was going to post a card on Monday, but due to the IHP news, I am sharing that card today….

I used a leprechaun image included in a set called A Magical Spring by Paper Smooches. I stamped the image on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and then, I cut it out with scissors. Additionally,  I used a white card stock strip to stamp the sentiment. I used patterned paper to make a rectangle background, and adhered it over a green 4.25″ x 5.5″ base card.   The patterned paper belongs to a collection called Simple Life Dots & Stripes by Echo Park. The final touches were details of Stickles, Glossy Accents and some green Sequins. My card was based on the current  CTS #105.

This is another simple card using a pretty stamp set called Lucille Sew Perfect by Hero Arts/Basic Grey. I stamped the image and then the sentiment on a strip of patterned paper that belongs to a 6×6 pad collection called Sweater Weather by Lawn Fawn. I used Hero Arts Shadow Ink Mint Julep and Memento Tuxedo Black. I added decorative tape and stitches along two sides of the patterned paper. Finally, I just added three white hearts with KaiserCraft Basics Rhinestones Gems and then, I tied Earthy Hemp Twine around front panel. Very easy to make.

Well, that’s all from me right now, I will be back soon to share another project!

Quick post today, just to share a card using products from the i {heart} papers store 🙂

I used a cute bunny included in a set called A Magical Spring by Paper Smooches. I stamped the image on patterned paper, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After I cut out the image, I used a white cardstock rectangle and a patterned paper strip as the base for the bunny. Additionally to the little stamped heart, I stamped a sentiment by Hero Arts. I embellish this card with a piece of Earthy Hemp Twine, and some Kaiser Craft Basic Rhinestone gems. As you can see, quite simple. I always like to have sketches that can use many times and also can save you time, specially when you need to make “last minute” cards.
Well, today I am also sharing the sketch of this card, so please feel free to grab it!

i {heart} papers Card [Thanks]

Hi!

I am back today to share another card featuring products that you can buy at the i {heart} papers store.

The set that I used for my card is a Holiday set  called  Love You a Latte by Lawn Fawn. The set includes six sentiments, among them a “thanks” sentiment. I love when you can buy versatile stamp sets that you can use in more than one way. With this set, you can make Holiday, or Thanks , or Love cards 🙂

I begun this project by making a card base, and then, I covered the front of it with a striped patterned paper that belongs to a collection called Simple Life Dots & Stripes by Echo Park. Next,  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a white panel, and I colored the images with Copic markers.  I also added some glitter little details, as well as Glossy AccentsThen, I made a panel from black card stock  (3.75″ x 5″) and die-cut a 2.75″ circle to create a window. I placed this panel on top of the stamped white panel with foam tape. Finally I adhered the panel to the front card, and I tie on black bakers twine… and presto!

Well, that’ all from me today. Thanks for visiting, have a nice crafty week!
