Hi! I’m here with another card and video tutorial. ūüíõ¬†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! ūüĆą¬†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. ‚ú®

Hey there, and welcome to The Cutest Video Hop Ever! I am very excited to be joining my friend Emily Leiphart for this fun hop celebrating 5000 subscribers on her YouTube channel but, more importantly, inspiring the next generation of crafters! Emily invited video artists to create a craft video with their kids or have their kids have the spotlight, as well as 2 young crafters (including me) who’ve grown up on YouTube. We hope you have as much fun watching these videos, as much as we enjoyed creating these projects to share with you.

Make sure to read my blog post until the bottom for more information about commenting and giveaways! You can also visit Emily’s blog post for all of the info. Simply click HERE.

In today’s video, I’m stamping a macaron background with the Macarons stamp set from The Ton. To add some cuteness overload, I colored a dog from the Dog Life set from The Ton.

I had so much fun making this card! I must admit that stamping the macaron background was a little bit time consuming but definitely worth it! I used my mini MISTI tool to perfectly line up the layers of the macarons. However, you could also use a regular acrylic block.

For the pink macarons, I layered three colors: Rose Quartz, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria. For the yellow macarons, I layered Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Beach Blondie and Amber Citrine. For the filling of the macaron, I used the Cocoa bundle from The Ton. You can get all of these inks individually, too!

I decided to adhere a vellum overlay to soften the background out. Since I wanted to put a cute dog on my card, I also die cut a white circle to really make that image pop! For the sentiment, I used Soft Garnet to stamp a label from the Basic Labels set from The Ton. Finally, I finished off my card with a variety of sequins. I used some individual colors as well as flower sequins from mixes. All of the supplies I used are linked below, in case you’re interested. ūüôā
