Die Cutting and Rainbow Colors (Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop)

Hi! I’m here with another card and video tutorial. 💛 Today’s blog post is part of Winnie & Walter’s 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop to Celebrating Love and Friendship. I’m grateful to be part of the Winnie & Walter Design Team. Shay’s kindness warms my heart and of course I’m in love with Winnie & Walter’s product style.

Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship

In today’s video I’m showing you how to make a fun love and friendship themed card featuring True Dotty Heart Cutaways and Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs. These two products are part of the brand new February 2018 Release. I also used the Katharine Cutaways. This is an oldie but goodie. One of my favorite die cut sets ever.

I started out by die cutting lots of images. First I die cut the stitched heart out of a scrap of bright green card stock. I die cut the scalloped heart out of white card stock. I love that one! It reminds me of a doily. I pieced both hearts together using my favorite craft glue from Tonic.

For the card base I used Taffy card stock from Bazzill along with patterned paper from Avery Elle. The designs and colors in this paper pad are so much fun. Lots of rainbow colors! 🌈 I’m slowly getting over pastel colors these days. However, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

I did some simple Copic coloring on the dog from the Dog-gone Cute with Evelin T Designs stamp set. I’m not very good at coloring animals so that’s why I like to stick to some neutral grays. I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. Finally, I adhered everything together with foam squares and liquid adhesive and I added some sparkle with the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Shimmer Pen and a coat of Crystal Glaze from Tonic. ✨
