Thin Cuts Cards

Hi all!
Today I want to share with you LOTS of cards I've made using the hello thanks thin cuts by Close to my Heart.
These are soooo cute!!!!
 
For the card above I cut out 'hello' from white cardstock and then put it on top a some jeepers creepers paper that is layered on top of some pink paper. To finish the card I added some gold sequins.


To make this card I cut the leaves from the NEW Flower Market cricut cartridge. The 'hello' is cut from kraft cardstock and attached using my mini stapler. I also attached the twine that I had on hand using the mini stapler too!

This card was really fun to make and to see the end product!
I used the negative cut out from the fall card above. I layered it on some purple cardstock I had on hand using 3D foam. I then added a bow from twine on hand and some discontinued sequins.
 
This card is so cute, and I'll be making it again I'm sure!

Eeeekkkkk! I really love this card too! It is a simple card for sure, but I LOVE IT!
I used some purple cardstock and embossed it using the happy thoughts embossing folder and distressed it with my sanding block.
I cut 'hello' from white cardstock and attached it using my mini stapler. That stapler has sure become my friend.  :) 
To finish the card I added some silver sequins.

This card base was made using some jeepers creepers paper. I used the negative space from 'thanks' that was cut for a different card from white cardstock.  
I added some black twine I had on hand and some discontinued enamel stars to finish the card. I also rounded the two outside corners.


To make this purple card I used some paper I had on hand and cut the 'thanks' from my thin cuts and attached it using my mini stapler.
I also added a layer of velum paper under the thanks thin cut.
I really like the look of adding velum paper to the card. Lastly I added some discontinued gems to the card.


Isn't this card cute and very patriotic?
I had this paper on hand that I got a while back from a craft store. I cut the 'thanks' using my thin cuts and white cardstock. I attached it using my mini stapler and then finished the card by tying a bow with ribbon I had on hand.

Lastly I made a card using jeepers creepers paper and a zip strip! Not sure what a zip strip is? It's the edge of paper that people usually cut off. Well Close to my heart has this strip of paper printed a different pattern than  the rest of the paper pack. What a fun twist right?!
I cut the 'thanks' using my thin cuts and attached it using my mini stapler. Lastly I added some discontinued gems.

Flat Friday #7

Hi all!

Today I wanted to share with you a FLAT card.
I am always mailing cards, so I especially LOVE when I can mail a cute, flat card.
 
For the card today I used the jeepers creepers paper for the background (grey & white dot) and then I embossed a piece of grey cardstock using the happy times embossing folder.
To give it that worn look I sanded over the top of the embossing using my sanding block.
Next I cut out 'hello' using the NEW hello thanks thin cuts from Close to my Heart.
I attached the 'hello' using my mini stapler which I LOVE!
 
Really I LOVE the mini stapler, and I have used it a TON!  

 
Here is a close up photo of the thin cuts. I know you'll LOVE them, so go ahead and order them HERE
 
You'll need a die cutting machine to cut the thin cuts. I use the Sizzix Big Shot which is AWESOME!!!
 
Supplies used:
Mini stapler
Jeepers creepers paper
Grey cardstock
White cardstock
Happy times embossing folder
Sanding block

Cricut Card Making

Hi all!
Today I'm sharing with you some cards I made using my cricut and the NEW Flower Market cricut cartridge from Close to my Heart.

For this card I used the cricut to cut out the leaves and the NEW hello thanks thin cuts to cut the word 'hello'.
The leaves were cut at 2 inches on the cricut.
I used an embossing folder to get the dots on the green cardstock, and I added some twine to the top of the card for the leaves to hang from. I attached the twine using my mini stapler.
 
This acorn card was cut at 3 1/2 inches on my cricut. I used the happy thoughts embossing folder on the kraft card base, added the 'thankful' saying from the September SOTM, tied some jute around the acorn and finished the card by adding some gold sequins.

I LOVE this card! I am loving the jar cut out from the cricut cartridge so much! I cut the top layer of the jar using some velum paper and then glued it down.
The jar and jar overlay were both cut at 4 1/2 inches on the cricut.

I embossed the kraft card base using a dot embossing folder, and I attached the jar to the card using 3D foam. To make this card cute I added some twine around the neck of the jar and attached some gold sequins too! 

How cute is this HUGE flower?
I cut this flower using some purple cardstock I had laying around. I cut it at 4 1/2 inches, both the flower base and the flower layer.
I put the flower on top of a jeepers creepers piece of cardstock and I used the Happy to be friends stamp set to stamp 'happy wedding day' in whisper ink on grey cardstock.

For this card I also cut the flower and flower layer at 4 1/2 inches, but my cricut cutting mat didn't have a full sheet of paper on it, so the flower wasn't fully cut out.
So then I choose to place my partially cut flower onto the edge of my card front.
The card front is a piece of jeepers creepers cardstock and I used the Happy to be friends stamp set to stamp 'happy wedding day' in whisper ink on grey cardstock. I also added some shimmer to this card by brushing the shimmer brush all over the top of the flower once I attached both layers to one another.


I love this card I created using scraps I had on hand. The flowers were cut at 4 1/2 inches for all layers. The banner was cut at 1 1/4 inches on the cricut.

I made two of these cards and on this one I added some shimmer to the flower petals using my shimmer brush.

Here are the two cards I created, one without shimmer and one with shimmer.
This is the NEW Flower Market cricut bundle. It comes with the cricut cartridge, 3 stamp sets, and paper pack for $99.
 
I LOVE this cartridge and there is so much to make with this one, over 700 images plus a font!!!
