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 Electronic Die Cutting 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.

Christmas Special Delivery Envelope

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”?

MOD274 Special Delivery Card Kit

Special Delivery Love Envelope for Valentine’s Day

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!

I Love You a Bushel and a Peck…

A DIY Sign for Valentine’s Day or for everyday..

using Styletech Craft Vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo.

My mom loved to sing this song.

She sang it to us when we were kids and then she sang it again to our kids.

This song and sign brings back all the warm fuzzies and good memories.

A Perfect Love Song for Valentine’s Day and everyday.

To make the “I Love you a Bushel and a Peck” sign I used:

Directions:

  1. Using the “Bushel and a Peck” SVG cut file and the Silhouette Cameo re-size the image to fit inside your frame.
  2. To keep it simple, I cut the image out twice using both the black and magenta glitter vinyl.
  3. Remove the excess vinyl (the negative pieces) using a Craft Vinyl Weeding Tool* or pick.
  4. Remove all the hearts and flourishes from the black vinyl.
  5. Remove the words from the magenta vinyl.
  6. Use Vinyl Transfer Tape* to pick up and apply the words directly onto the piece of scrapbook paper.  Gently rub over paper.  Remove transfer tape.
  7. You can re-use the transfer tape to pick up the hearts and flourishes.
  8. Carefully line up the hearts and flourish over the words.  Remove transfer tape.
  9. Add finished sign into frame and enjoy.

Tip:  If you’re good, you can carefully pick up the words from the magenta glitter vinyl and use it on a separate project.  Like the “Hug” cup down below.

From the 1950’s Musical “Guys and Dolls”…Sang by Doris Day

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I’m talkin’ in my sleep

About you, about you
‘Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do
A doodle oodle ooh doo
A doodle oodle oodle ooh doo

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.  (Make sure to watch the Bonus video at the end.)

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.

BONUS… Here is a video that Linda Israel made in the Tape Technologies booth which

includes me showing Linda how to make the Love Coaster.  Mistakes and all…”Craft Happens”.

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.
