Washi Tape Heart

Washi Tape Heart Card

I love a clean and simple card, and this Washi Tape Heart Card is so simple to make.

To make the Washi Tape Heart Card…

  • Create the cut-out heart layer by cutting various sizes of hearts on a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ piece of white cardstock.  I used a Silhouette Cameo die-cut machine*.  (You can also use punches or dies to create the hearts.)
  • Center the cut-out heart layer onto a white 5″ x 7″ card and lightly traced the hearts with a pencil.
  • Cover the heart outlines with several different strips of coordinating washi tape pieces.
  • Use a tape runner to adhere to the cut-out heart layer onto the front of the card, aligning it with the washi tape.

A Clean and Simple Valentines Day Card.  

Just stamp a simple greeting onto the front of the card,

or you could cut the words out of red glossy craft vinyl as I did. 

I’m glad my husband doesn’t read my blog.  

This card will make a perfect Valentine’s Day card for him.

I want to share with you the perfect organizer for holding washi tape.

The small three-drawer organizer* from Deflecto was made with washi tape in mind.

Each of the three drawers are divided and can hold a lot of washi tape.

The small three-drawer organizer* is also great for holding small ink pads and paintbrushes.

As promised, I want to share with you a few more samples made with the NEW RELEASE

Tammy Tutterow Stamps and Dies from The Maker’s Movement.

The first thing that came to mind when I looked at the Special Delivery Card Kit was Valentines.

It also makes a super cute Christmas Envelope perfect for stuffing a Holiday gift card.

Who doesn’t want a little extra “love”?

The top flap is creased to fold.  It makes the cutest little envelope to tuck in a sweet note.

The journaling card die that fits inside the envelope makes it the perfect embellishment

for Scrapbooking or Cardmaking.

When open the envelope measures 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″.

How cute is the postage stamp die?

A little more LOVE…

I made a couple tags using the Nested Rounded Tags and the Sweet Petites Sentiment Stamps.

I love both of these sets.  Great for any time of the year!

How to make a Love Coaster with Easel

A Quick and Easy, DIY, Valentine’s Decoration or Gift.

The “Love Coaster with Easel” is one the projects that I made at the Tape Technologies

booth while at Creativation last week.  

To make the Love Coaster…                                (*affiliate link)

    • You can use pre-made white coasters* or…I made my scalloped coaster using a steel rule die and white chipboard.
    • Cut a heart out of Translucent Red Glittered Vinyl from Tape Technologies using a thin metal die.  Apply the glitter heart to the coaster using a transfer paper made for vinyl.
    • Using my Silhouette CAMEO 3 Wireless Cutting Machine*, I cut the word “love” out of Black Glittered Translucent Vinyl and applied it directly over my heart using transfer paper.
    • I edged the sides of my coaster in silver, using a Silver DecoColor Premium paint pen*.

To make the Easel…

  • Glue a clothespin on the back of the coaster with craft glue.
  • Pull the clothespin open just enough so that the round metal spring comes slightly out of it’s groove.  (Some clothespins work better than others so you might need a little luck.)
  • To keep the clothespin from snapping shut…glue the top ends of the clothespin together.

A couple of guys at the show made theirs into a Valentine’s card.

I told them all they had to do was add a sweet note inside and they were set.

Maybe I should of told them including  flowers and chocolates is also a good idea.

a little Valentine Love

valentines-frame-sues-creative-workshop-4136

When I flipped over the calendar this morning it hit me.

Less than 2 weeks until Valentine’s Day.

After all these years…

it’s still fun to throw a few hearts around to make sure he doesn’t forget.

I created this cute little Valentine’s decoration using a clear 4″ x 6″

acrylic craft frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions, scrapbook paper and stickers.

The sticker in the middle says “I belong with you & you belong with me”.

I think he’ll get the hint.

Making Mini Resin Frames

Resin Frame and Magnet 2788

I had this idea that I’d been wanting to try…

to create little dimensional framed artwork using miniature frames filled with resin.

It really is pretty easy to do.  The only hard part for me was waiting for the resin to cure.

They would be great for weddings or parties.

Customize the frames to use for table numbers, centerpieces, desert tables and more.

There’s a lot of possibilities.
