Scrappy Valentine

Finally – a creative way to use some of those little scraps of designer paper you have laying around.  All you need is bits and pieces of designer paper, a 1” square punch, and the Top Note die.  Here’s the result:Friend to friend 1Be my valentine 1     









As Debbie said when she saw these cards, “Mother, these are SO PINK AND RED!”  I will admit this scrappy valentine is very pink and red, but then VALENTINES DAY is just around the corner.  I started with 20 – 1” squares of assorted pinky/reddish designer paper.  I glued these on in neat rows on a 5 X 4” piece of card stock.  This card stock does not show, so you can use any 80# cs you have.  After adhering the 1” squares securely, I ran the colorful cs through the Big Shot with the Top Note die.  Next, I ran the cut Top Note through the Big Shot with the Hound’s-tooth  (friend to friend card) or Square Lattice (Be my valentine card) embossing folders.  I ran some thin ribbon around Melon Mambo cs and attached the layer to a Regal Rose card.  I used Sticky Strip to adhere the top note to the card front and added a small banner with the sentiment.  The banner was gently curled with the bone folder and attached with glue dots.  A button and red rhinestones were used to embellish the banner on one card, and a brad and pearls on the other card.  I added a little white bow, 3 hearts and trim from the new Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies.  Of course, this card could be made in any color scheme for any occasion. 

So you’ve seen all 4 of our projects for the Hearts and Flowers Stamp Camp this weekend.  You’ve seen the end result using some of the items in the new Mini so plan on stopping and using these new tools.  Hours for Friday February 3rd are 4 – 9 PM, and for Saturday February 4th , 9 AM – 4 PM.  See some of the Sale-A-Bration specials, and spend some time creating.  Give me a call if you have any questions, and if you can, let me know which day you will be coming.  Stay safe and warm!
