Relatively Thoughtful - Be My Valentine Tag!

    Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Relatively Thoughtful!
Several months ago, Relative History partnered with Thoughtful Studio,
to become Relatively Thoughtful.
Occasionally, as a part of the Relatively Thoughtful DT,
I will have the privilege of sharing projects using Thoughtful Studio products.

This time I am featuring a wonderful printable collection from Thoughtful Studio.
It's called Affectionately Yours, Tessa.
You can find it HERE.

It's a lovely collection and it's ideal for Valentine projects. 

Here is what I made:

This is the front of the tag.
The text strip is the Shakespeare quote.
I used it to fussy cut a heart to fill the tag.

This is the back of the tag.
I added the lovely journaling card, along with a strip of paper used on the front.
I also added the first line of the Shakespeare quote that I used on the front.
Finally, I added a double looped ribbon bow to the top of the tag.
I placed this bow upside down so the tails would show on the front.

Here's a closer look at the wax seal I made.
I used the copper wax with just a touch of red added. 
Isn't that detail fabulous? 
I'm totally addicted to making these fun seals

Winter Tales Easel Card for White Rose Crafts

Hello, my friends!

I'm really excited to share my first Design Team project for

White Rose Crafts LLC

For those of you that don't know,
White Rose Crafts is a fabulous, family run business,
located in the United States.
You'll find MANY of my favorite papercrafting products in the shop!

Today I am sharing a project featuring the
Winter Tales Collection from Stamperia!
Most of you already know that I love Winter, 
I love snow, and I love birds.
This Collection combines all of those things! :o)

Here's the front of my card:

Isn't that the most beautiful paper? 
My card measures 5 1/2"x 8".
I don't usually make cards that large
but who could cut that paper, right?

Here's the card standing up:

Of course, since it's an easel card, you need to see the side view too:

My base is all kraft cardstock.
Then I cut the feature piece for the front, and another piece for the inside background.
The paper edges were all lightly distressed with Vintage Photo Ink.

I then cut a border strip from another of the papers,
matted it with kraft cardstock, and adhered it to the base with foam tape.
This strip serves as a stopper for the easel feature.

I then cut the circle element from the collection,
matted it with kraft cardstock, and adhered it in place.

and added a pretty shiny drop to all of the little white berries.

Isn't that the most beautiful little bird?

I also added a larger white crystal drop to each corner of the front of the card,
and then brushed my Shimmer Marker over all of the pretty flowers.

I tried several angles to show the shimmer.
Maybe you can see it best in this last photo.

This is such a beautiful collection...
...ideal for creating pretty Winter themed projects!
I'll be back next week with another project using this same collection!

Pink Monarch Prints - Polka Dot Page!

    Hello, my friends!

Today I have a new project share for Pink Monarch Prints.
I was really feeling these wonderful polka dot papers.
The printable collection includes 32 pages in 8 colours.
There are 4 styles of pages in each of the 8 colours.
They range from plain polka dot up to beautifully distressed polka dots.

I've made this fun page in my new Julie Nutting TN,
along with a Julie Nutting Doll stamp.
I meant to take a photo of the actual TN cover because it's fabulous.
I'll do that in a future post. 

Here's my page:

I chose the blue polka dot for the background.
After adhering it in place, I had fun stamping the elements from the stamp set.

I added a little bit if yellow to the bees with my pencil crayons.
I also added stickles to the bees wings and the flower.

Then I added my very first wax seal!
I used some Christmas money to order a set of wax and some seals.
You'll be seeing lots more seals in future posts.
They are SO MUCH fun!

I stamped and fussy cut the main images onto more polka dot papers.
Paper piecing is so much fun!
The tan polka-dots worked beautifully for her skin
I then went in and did a little bit of shading with my pencil crayons.

I had so much fun making this page!
I'll be sharing LOTS more Julie Nutting pages as soon as I can find the rest of my stamps.
I have no idea which box they're in! ;o)

Thinking of You Card

    Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Relatively Thoughtful!

Sally had designed these lovely printable papers for a special even some time ago.
I just love the combination of colours and patterns she used!
They inspired me to create a pretty card, along with some handmade flowers.
Sally has generously given me these beautifully papers, as a PDF,
to offer as a gift to each one of you!
You will find a link to the papers at the end of this post.

In the meantime, here's my card:

Isn't that colour combination pretty? 
I just love the big polka dots, and the floral print is so lovely!

The circle die and the sentiment stamp are from my stash.

I created the dimensional flowers using a Graphic 45 die set.
I haven't done a flower tutorial for some time.
If you're interested in learning how I created these flowers,
please leave a comment below.

Maker's Movement - Winter Scene Card

 Hello, my friends!

It's time for a fun new project for Maker's Movement

I used my wonderful Crossover II Machine for all my die-cutting on this project.

I've also used:

Here's my card:

I just LOVED putting this one together!
So much fun!
...or should I say "SNOW" much fun! ;o)

The main scene has been created with the Great Outdoors Die Set,
along with some of the Christmas Doodles papers.
Then I added more sweet little trees, along with the snowflakes,
from the Shaker Ornament Die Set.
The front panel was added using foam tape.

I stamped the cute little critters out, and colored them with my markers.
I added them into the scene

I then added this sweet sentiment, and a few bits,
to the inside of the card.
Finally, I added a little snowflake bling to the center of each snowflake.

These products combined make a really fabulous Winter scene!
With just a few changes to the papers, 
these same products could be used to create a scene card for any season.
