"My Heart Is Yours"

"My Heart Is Yours"
Red and White Easel Heart Card


I recently discovered Gift Box Easel Cards.

I wanted to try something completely different to what other people had made so I thought up the idea of making Heart Box Easel Card. 

I have studied various techniques and styles of boxes but ended up working for two days on my own design as the heart box styles I downloaded off Google just did not suit my needs. I started off with my Cherry Lynn Hearts Dies utilizing various sizes ensuring I had a top and bottom heart, I then cut a strip and scored along the strip and cut out "V" sections to curve around the lower part of the heart. Once I had the bottom heart attached with the heart box wall I then went around the edge with the glue gun of the top heart and glued it to the box. 

I then attached Ribbon and printed paper with double sided adhesive around the box heart then rolled a heart cut shape over the box to give it extra lacy effect. I then stacked up my heart boxes and completed my Heart Box Easel Card.
The Easel itself is actually separate to the platform, this being to stabilize it with all of the weight of my heart box and Digital etc. I have layered extra Cardstock on the walls of the Easel to give it strength and support. The platform I have cut out a separate piece of cardstock and then attached the Easel with double sided adhesive to the platform then decorated my Easel.

Here also is a link for making heart shaped boxes:  Heart Shaped Boxes

Friday Cards Tutorial ~ 3D Techniques


Hello Friends !

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club to share with you Friday's project ~ "Cards" and I am using a technique for 3D on my card today and would like to share my ideas with you.

Tip of the Day: Never have any white showing on your 3D Images ~ colour with Copic Pens on edges.

Now onto my tutorial.
One of my huge favorites with making my cards is using 3D Images. They just look absolutely sensational on any creation.
Although very time consuming colouring 3 to 4 of the same image of Digital Stamps and then having to cut them out, I find buying the pre-colored 3D sheets a much better idea and huge time saver.

 First up you need a very fine sharp pointed pair of scissors

  • Once you have printed off your 3D pre-coloured sheet cut out all of the Images which are printed on the sheets in the actual layering order. 
  • To get into the enclosed areas where in this instance are boots, I cut through the join of the boot and then cut out the white section (see photo 1) ~ I find by using very fine pointed scissors rather than using a Blade I get a much more precise cut
  • With the white sections next to the body and hair, I cut along the edge of the bow and then around the hair to cut out the white section and I do this on both sides of the body as seen here in (see photo 2)
  • The 3rd photo is how it looks once I have cut out the entire Digi, you will see no white sections 
  • I repeat this with all of the other 3D Image Layers




  • Being exceptionally fussy and a perfectionist, I do not like to see any white showing around the outside of my cut out image, although very hard to avoid I counteract this with my Copic Pens to color in the edges matching the actual colour on that part of the image, ie: Bright Pink Dress I use a Bright Pink Copic on the outer edging etc
  • Nothing annoys me more than seeing a layered 3D image with White cut edges showing




  • Once I have gone around the entire edges of my 3D Images I then often re-color any faint or pale parts of the clothing, face and hair etc. with my Copics

  • When I have completed my Copic touch ups I turn over each Digi and stick down the parts where I have cut through sections with the scissors to cut out the white sections I tape these areas down so that these cut areas are not visible on the right side of the Digi ~ I repeat this with all of the 3D Digi Layers
  • My 3D's are now all ready for mounting before the next procedure ~ applying a nice thick double sided foam, I mount each section on top of one another very carefully

  • Once my 3D Digi is all mounted it is now ready to complete the last procedure
  • Since this is a Xmas Digi I often use my True Snow and loads of Glitter Glue
  • It is imperative that the True Snow is completely dried prior to applying the Glitter over the top.
  • I am going to apply the True Snow to the hat, boots and pom poms
  • I always use a Pearl Glitter Glue over the top of the True Snow for a bling effect 
  • Using two sized paint brushes both for the True Snow as well as the Glitter Glue (Fine and Medium) I apply the Glitter Glue over the True Snow
  • I then apply matching colored Glitter Glues to the clothing, flowers, headband and boots etc (Note: The headband and boots I am using Silver Glitter Glue)
  •  I find it very helpful once I have applied my True Snow and Glitter Glues to use a hot hairdryer to dry these areas with so that I am not waiting for hours on end for drying ~ this way I can complete my project much quicker


 
  • Here is my finished project ~ my 3D mounted to my Card



I hope you have enjoyed my 3D Tutorial today.

As always, any comments are very much appreciated. 
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Friday Cards ~ Revamping


Hello Friends !

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club to share with you Friday's project ~ "Cards".

My Tip Today: Make use of your old cards ~ bring them back to life again


Now to one of my favorite things I like to do. I make a large number of cards, as I do not sell my cards I like to make use of them where I can and if I can. I love making cards and entering them into challenges, its like playing a poker machine (lol) the excitement of watching and winning if you can be so lucky.
When I get a card that has taken the eye of DT members on several challenges and has won I know its a special card and thought rather than bin the cards I came up with the idea of revamping them and re-entering them into challenges and winning again with that old card.

Here is a card I made some months ago and it won a few challenges. After the date of make had flown by I just thought it was a pity to bin the card, so I studied the challenges that were open at that time and saw a challenge theme "In the Garden". I thought just "PERFECT".
So on went my thinking cap and I completely re-vamped my old Bendi Fold Card.



This is the original Bendi Fold Card I created and won challenges with:-

And here is how I revamped the original Bendi Card:-
Keeping the original trees, I added extra Fern, I changed the grassing using a die and having 3 various colours, added a tag "I Love my Garden" and popped a new Doily and Digital stamp. Here I had my new Bendi Fold Card all ready to go for a new challenge.......and, it won the challenge, 1st prize.
 Of course it did not finish there, I decided to utilize this Bendi Card one more time for one of my DT assignments, yes I revamped it again:-
Here is my current Bendi Fold Card re-vamped:-
This time I just used the very base card and totally re-vamped and changed the entire card.
I love re-vamping and I hope you have enjoyed my  tutorial on my revamping of the Bendi Fold Card.

As always, any comments are very much appreciated. 
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
