Happy Valentine’s Day

Good morning!

I have another card to share with you from the January new release for C.C. Designs.  This little sweetie is from the Heart You Clear Stamp set and Heart You Outline Metal Dies.

Happy Valentine's Day

I stamped this little cupid on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Skin:  E11/21/00/000/0000-R20/30/00
Hair:  E37/35/33/30
Reds:  R89/46/27/24/22/Y11
Grays:  C2/0/CB
Wings:  B01/00/BG72 – White Gel Pen

Happy Valentine's Day2

Once the image was colored I cut him out with the coordinating metal outline dies and then set him aside while I created the shaker element.  I used tulle as my shaker front to keep a little softness to the card and added lots of pretty little shaker bits.

The dies are from La-La Land Crafts and Paper Smooches.  The paper is from my stash.

Big Bear Hugs ~ Gift Bag Tutorial

Hello everyone!

It’s my turn to give a tutorial for C.C. Designs,  and I’ve got a cute little gift bag to share with you all.  For this project I used the super adorable bear from the Tiny Winter clear stamp set from C.C. Designs.  So much cuteness!

Big Bear Hugs

Supplies Needed to construct the bag:

(2) 6×6 pieces of double sided paper
White Ribbon
Strong double sided tape
Bone folder
Crop-A-dile or paper punch of your choice to punch holes for ribbon
Scoring platform
Self-adhesive rhinestones

  • Before you score your paper make sure you remember or mark what is the top so that your pattern is all going the same direction. One piece is for the front (A) and one for the back (B).
  • With outside paper facing up, score three sides at 1 ½”
  • Turn paper over and score the remaining side at 1”
  • Crease all of your score lines remembering to fold the top 1” score line toward the front of the bag. (As shown below)
  • On sheet marked ‘A’ cut in from both side on the score line in 1 1/2” to the score line.
  • On sheet marked ‘B’ cut out the two bottom squares. I cut at a slight angle on the center piece to reduce a little bulk when assembling.

Big Bear Hugs1

Add ScorTape or your favorite strong two sided tape as shown below.

Big Bear Hugs2

  • Remove the backing from the tape on the bottom flap of side marked B.
  • Turn both sides so the “inside print” is facing you, and adhere the center flap from side B on top of the center part of side A (as shown below)

Big Bear Hugs3

  • Remove the backing from the tape from both small side flaps on piece marked A and adhere to the inside of the sides of piece A as shown below.

Big Bear Hugs4           Big Bear Hugs5

  • Remove the backing from the tape on the remaining flaps of piece B and adhere them to the INSIDE of the sides of piece A. By tucking them inside you will not see any raw edges from the front of your box which will be the side marked A.  The small side flaps from piece A will become hidden if you assemble this way.

Big Bear Hugs7

  • Punch a hole in the center of each side of your bag.
  • Run ribbon through each hole from the outside, tying it on the inside.
  • I used 1/8 inch ScorTape to adhere a piece of white ribbon to the green flap, making sure the join was on the back side of the bag.

To decorate I colored the adorable little bear from the Tiny Winter Stamp Set with Copic markers and cut him out with the coordinating cut it out dies.

~Copics~
Bear: E37/35/34/53/30
Ears: E32/30/00
Nose: W8/6/4/100
Greens: YG17/03/01
Blues: B16/14/12/BV25

Big Bear Hugs8

To finish my bag I cut out a circle of vellum, and the snowflake circle out of white and attached the two together with liquid glue.  I adhered this to the bag with double sided foam tape.  I attached the bear to the front of this with double sided foam tape.  A sentiment and a little bling finished this cute little bag.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!

Crafty Hugs,
Pam

What can I say…I love these sweet Swiss Pixies from C.C. Designs!  This little cutie pie is from the Christmas Swiss Pixie clear stamp set…how adorable!

I am not a traditional Christmas color kinda girl, and I adore the cute paper found in the I {heart} Snow Paper Pad…so pink and blue were my colors of choice for her.

The blue flower I chose for this card was a little too big for me, I made it a little smaller by removing the bottom two layers of the flower and re-gluing the leaves back on before attaching to my card with hot glue.
