January RemARKably Creative Blog Tour-Sending Love

teamblogtourmain

Happy New Year! I’m back in the blog lineup this month (part of my resolutions for 2017 🙂 craft more!!)

This month, our theme is “Sending Love.” You’ll likely see a lot of samples from the bundle in the Occasions Catalog by that name, but since that one hasn’t made its way to me yet, I’m opting for cards that convey love 🙂 Both use the Dragonfly Dreams bundle.

First up is a card for a friend who got married yesterday. I actually snipped one of the dragonflies out of my die cut because they are now a family of 4! (Mom and 2 kids married a guy who loves them all so much!) The sentiment is actually from Oh So Succulent stamp set (also a must-see in the Occasions Catalog)!

My second project is a Valentine card. This card features the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. First I stamped the little bee in Crushed Curry, tone on tone. Then I ran the paper in the embossing folder through my Big Shot.

Then I cut out a bee in Basic Black and a banner in Whisper White from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits. I stamped “BEE MINE” with the Labeler Alphabet, and folded up the creases made by the die cut to give some dimension (I only did this on one end; the other end I put a dimensional under so that the ends were balanced but that end supports the circle). I punched out a 1-1/4″ circle and a heart from the Owl Builder punch. A little Fine Tip Glue pen on the bee and done!
