Minecraft Pickaxe Birthday Card.

I made this card by using my child's foam pickaxe from Minecraft.  I simply chose my colors to match and then punched out 3/4" square.  Then I arranged them and glued them down.  The saying was from a Minecraft t-shirt.  The Minecraft words are from the packaging that held the foam pickaxe.

With 3/4" squares this is a big card.  It's actually 8 1/2" X 5 1/2".  Hope you enjoy. - Heidi

Background die love!

I am in love with background dies.  They make a quick and cool backgrounds for any card.  I saw a card that cut away part of the back ground and I thought I could definitely do that.  To see an example click here, it's the second card.  This card is similar as I cut away part of the background chevron die cut. The die is the Chevron Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions. The sentiment is from All Holidays and the flowers are from Too Kind, both from Stampin' Up.

The next card uses the Cover Plate: Chevron Vertical Die from Papertrey Ink. I cut out several colors of cardstock with this die.  Then in the kraft colored background I placed the blue and pink stripes to fill in the background.  The sentiment is from Banner Greetings and the flower is from Fifth Avenue Floral both from Stampin' Up. The leaves are foliage dies from Spellbinders. The doily behind the flower is picot edge circles from Spellbinder.

Have a great day! - Heidi

Luigi Card

Happy Wednesday to you!  I have another recycle and I've seen that before card.  We recently bought this remote, see below, at our Goodwill store.  On the side panel is a picture of Luigi.


With such a nice picture on the side - I had to make it into something!

I used the Little Letter Thinlits Dies and Draw the Line stamp Set from Stampin Up.  I think it turned out pretty cool for a recycled card! - Heidi

Two more sticker cards

I used the same vellum stickers from a previous post and made two different cards. The vellum stickers are called Beyond Postmarks, Sentiments, from K & Company.  The paper is from Fancy Pants and is called Wonderful Day. The first card uses the tag topper scalloped punch from Stampin' Up.

The second card uses the Circles Large Edger punch from EK Success and a heart punch.  The Circles punch is an edger punch and makes a chain of circles.  I simply punched the top of my tag and trimmed the extra circles I didn't want off the top.  I find that I have a lot of edger punches and I need to find different things to do with them.

More vellum sticker cards

Here are three more cards that I made using the vellum stickers I talked about in my last post.

The above card uses a chevron background die from, I believe Papertrey Ink. The card below uses a background die from Taylored Expressions.

See the arches on the first and third card?  They are made with the Diamond Lace slim edger punch from EK Success.  I just punched one out and stuck it behind the sticker to give that cool arch look.  On the third card I drew the lines that radiate out.  The punch I speak of is pictured below.

Have a great rest of your Saturday. - Heidi
