Live Learn Hope Valentine Card with Tutorial

Learn, Live and Hope is such a fabulous inspirational message!!! It just inspires love and dreams! I can’t help but to share the love as we go into Feb and seeing all the Valentine inspiration that is already being shared.

Today I created a Valentine inspired card using the stamps from Blank Page Muse. I began my card by painting a piece of white card stock using DecoArt Media paints.

Because my stamps are unmounted I thought i would run them through my Xyron 3″ Disposable Sticker Maker to see if they would fit and work on a stamp block. I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE…THEY WORK PERFECTLY!!!! Once you are done stamping, remove them from the stamp block and place back on the adhesive sheet. Place in small plastic bag or other stamp container.

Place stamps on stamp block and stamp card stock with Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Cut painted card stock down to fit on stamped background card stock. Stamp background image on top.

Die cut Trifecta pieces from white card stock; emboss with Emerald Creek Supplies Embossing Powder.
(To create the embossed layers … apply Boss Gloss or Embossing Ink over top of each die cut, sprinkle a bit of each embossing powder to the top and heat with embossing gun. Repeat as necessary to achieve the layers of embossed look.) 

Adhere distress red card stock; stamped background pieces and embossed cut out to top of card base.
Spatter with white and black paint.

Stamp heart and butterflies on card stock using Archival ink. 

Color fussy cut images out with Distress Markers.

Layer butterflies together at bodies; tip wings up and add to front of card.

Add stamped sentiment to front of card with pop dots.

Adhere chipboard to card front. Layer hearts together and place on front of card with pop dots. Add bow.

Add a second prepared butterfly to top of card.

Alpha…School Card with Craftwell

 Hi!!! I am sharing today on the Craftwell Blog my “Alpha…School” Card using Craftwell Alpha Embossing Folder designed by Teresa Collins.  
The A6 embossing folders come in two packs which is an incredible value.
Bonus is that they work perfect for your A2 card, tags, ATC’s, etc…the sky is the limit with them. 
 I created my “Alpha….School” Card by first cutting red card stock to fit inside the Alpha Embossing Folder. Once the card stock is inside the folder… emboss using two “A” plates, platform and Cut N’ Boss. 
Remove embossed card stock from Alpha Embossing Folder and sand lightly with sanding block. 
 Mat embossed card stock to top of card base. 
Add layers of card stock and pattern paper to top of card front. 
 Die cut red card stock and pattern paper using die, two “A” plates, “B” plate, metal shim and platform. 
(HINT: I like to use washi tape to hold my dies in place on small pieces of paper.)
Emboss black card stock using the Alpha Embossing Folder along with two “A” plates, platform and Cut N’ Boss. 
 Lay the red card stock die cut on to top of black embossed paper. 
Fussy cut around die cut. 
 Add prepared die cut piece to to of card front along with die cut image that has been matted on circle. 
 Add brown twine ribbon to front of card base. 
Add brown twine bow along with flowers. 
 Form two tags to place inside card using the embossed black card stock and pattern paper. 
 Add ribbon to the top of each tag. 
Place in pocket that has been formed using pattern paper inside of card. 
 Thanks for stopping by the Craftwell Blog today and hope you try your hand at making a hidden pocket filled with embossed tags or may just making a fun card using some of Teresa’s fabulous embossing folders that are available here at Craftwell.
