  • Weekend Project: Felt Plushies

    We are obsessed with all of these felt plush dies!  When you die cut the shape, it includes the holes so you know where to sew the pieces together.  The felt color combinations are endless.  This Easter egg die is perfect for the upcoming weekend.  You could make a few for your table setting or even attach a ribbon and hang from a tree.  Perfect to add to a Easter basket for someone special!IMG_2711 IMG_2893

    Look at all of these beautiful colors of felt!  We even have several more to choose from.  These look so nice together for spring.  Have a great weekend!

  • Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

    12661786_10208877635328742_1011373880191829209_nHello!  We were so excited when Amy at Coffee Loving Cardmakers invited us to be a sponsor and participate in the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  We recently got back in our Seattle clear stamp set and it has a couple coffee stamps that worked perfect for this hop.

    I created this card stamping the coffee stamp and fussy cutting them out. For the cheers die, I used gold mirror paper and black paper.  I mounted them together slightly off-set so that you get a shadow look, this helped to make the word pop on the card.  The printed paper is from the On Trends 2 6x6 paper by My Minds Eye.  I love this paper pack!  There are so many good patterns and love the colors.  I also lined the folded card with a piece of the mirror paper along the fold.

    Here is a quick bonus card that I did using a few more stamps from the set.  I love the look of white embossing powder on black paper, especially for sentiments.  A watercolor background is all you need and a little washi tape!  I did use glossy accents to create the coffee items to appear glossy on the card.  I took a close up picture so you could view it a little better.

  • Weekend Project: Glitter Iron On Bunny's

    This is such a cute idea that Shari came up with.  We love it!  It's perfect for a weekend project.  We sell iron-on glitter paper!  It comes in 12x12 sheets in a variety of colors and works great on our muslin bags.  You can die cut just about any shape!  You die cut or cut out the shape with the iron-on glitter paper. You will be able to tell that the rough side you want face down onto the cloth or paper that you are ironing.  Then, you put a cloth between the iron-on and iron.  Iron for a few minutes and then test to see if you did it long enough. There is a plastic cover and that should peel up easily.  If it doesn't want to separate, then just iron for a little bit longer.  The plastic cover will peel off and then you'll have your finished product.  We've even ironed on paper before!

  • Bunny Confetti

    We love sequins, glitter and confetti!  We recently got in pink and white leaping bunny confetti that is perfect for a shaker card or to glue on a card.  The hello die with frame is easy to use for a shaker card.  First, we die cut using gold mirror paper.  Then, cut a piece of acetate to cover the frame.  Then, around the edges we use mounting tape to create the depth and then this help to keep the shaker materials in it's place.  Finally, you will place your filled rectangle onto your card.  You can mount this directly onto your card or layer it.

  • Personalized Embosser

    We love the look of an embossed image, whether it's on stationary or the back of an envelope.  It's a classy look and perfect for wedding invites, monograms or for your everyday return address.  We were more than thrilled when we found this company at CHA.  They make it very easy.  You buy the embosser and all the information you need is in the kit.  You pick the style that you want and then they send the plate to you.  They have 100's of styles to choose from!

  • Weekend Project: Marbling Paper

    This marbling kit arrived in the stores this week and is a perfect weekend project!  It's extremely easy to do and you will have beautiful marble paper in a matter of a few minutes.  All you need is a clean tray.  I used my glass 9.5 x 11 baking dish.  You'll need water and paper without sizing. This is important because the dye will attach better to paper that doesn't have sizing.  I went to my local art store and they directed me to the correct paper that I was looking for.

    This marbling kit has 6 different colors and you can use any combination.  It comes with these small paper disks.  You put the disks in the water and you drop the ink onto the disks.  The ink will spread onto the water.  I took a toothpick and made patterns in the water.  Then, you simply lay the paper onto the water and pull them out.  I placed the marbled paper on some newsprint to let them dry.  You can get several sheets of paper marbled with one initial set up.  Each paper will get lighter and lighter.  Then I dumped the water and started over again.  It's fun to have some custom paper in your stash!  Have a great weekend!
