New HOTP Products

Hi everyone! Hot Off The Press has some great new products! I begged for the 8 Squares & Scallops Metal Cutting Dies because I use the circle version nearly every day. The nested scallops and squares are the perfect size for your stamped cards. 

The “YOU” Cutting Dies and “You” Greetings Stamp Set make for a whimsical and bold card focal. I love them and think they will get heavy rotation among my card making tools.

The Easy Watercolor Butterflies Stamp Set is AMAZING! It’s a layering stamp set and truly easy to use because the images are meant to have a watercolor look.

Here’s how it works:

First stamp the outline image using brown or black ink.

Then stamp the largest solid image in the lightest ink color. Notice that the images are slightly offset?

Finally stamp a smaller butterfly image using a darker color, inking the entire surface of the stamp and another color on the outside edges.

That’s all for today. Remember to leave time to make something pretty and share it with a friend. Happy crafting!

Shaker Cards

Hi everyone! I have some sweet shaker cards for you today!

Our friends at Creative Expressions brought us this darling Fairy Snow Globe Scene Cutting Die Set, Snow Globe Cutting Die Set and finally the cut Domed Treat Cups that are perfect for sequins, beads or candy!

For the card I used Illuminate Paper Pack, Embellishment Bottle and Ribbon Set.  I die cut the fairy scene from Purple Triple Finish and the globe from Silver Triple Finish Self Adhesive Papers, then used Gold Tiny Words & Phrases Dazzles™ for the “Happy Birthday” greeting. 

Here’s a fun card using only the Snow Globe Cutting Die Set and Domed Treat Cups. To create the card I covered a Center Step Die-Cut Card with Blue Circles and Green Circles Holographic Papers

To make the dome opening I traced the inside of the globe opening (from the cutting die) onto the card inside back and used scissors to cut it out. Then I used Extra Sticky Tape to secure the dome into place and added candy.

Then I backed an Octopus Hugs Dazzles™ Sticker with Blue Circles Holographic Paper and foam taped the cute octopus onto Green Circles Holographic Paper and taped it to cover the dome edges on the inside of the card (with the octopus now centered inside the dome).

Now to finish the outside of the card I used the Snow Globe Cutting Die and Stencil Tape to die cut the globe and base from Pewter Triple Finish Self Adhesive Papers. I peeled the backing from the self adhesive paper and placed the snow globe base around the dome.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you give shaker cards a try. They are so fun to make and receive! Happy crafting!
