Welcome everyone! It’s Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook hanging out with you. Today’s project started out as a simple idea I was excited to try and quickly grew a mind of its own. In a super fun and awesome way! One card, turned into two, which turned into a tag to go with it as well! I loved going with the flow as all of this evolved. I hope you enjoy it as well!
I’m going to share these projects with you in the order that they evolved. It seems fitting and most logical. 🙂
For this first fun card, I chose an array of blueish-teal cardstocks from my stash and cut them down to 4.25×5.5. Then I took the nested heart dies and, starting with the largest, cut one out of each color; creating a tunnel effect.
At this point I realized I was going to have all of the hearts that I cut out and thought it would be fun to make a second card with those too. So, I grabbed my Monster Love images to stamp out. Colored them and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I glued all the heart windows together with the lightest being a solid backing piece and attached it all to a card base. Then I chose the monster I liked best for this design and adhered it, tucking it inside the heart window. Next I grabbed my Happy Senti-mini stamps and dies to add a sentiment to this cute card.
For this next card I trimmed the lightest cardstock down to 4×5.25 and adhered it to a white card base. Then I stacked the hearts and adhered them down too. I tucked my super cute monsters behind a couple of the hearts and glued them down too. I added sentiments from the Hello Senti-mini stamps and dies to this card.
For finishing touches on both cards I added black glaze pen to the monster eyes, white gel pen accents throughout the images and glossy accents to monster noses, horns and mouths. You know I like glitter so I also added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the die cut part of the sentiments. Then I took boiled sugar jelly drop hearts and scattered them about.
At this point I had an extra monster left and I couldn’t just neglect him so I thought it would be fun to make a tag that followed the theme of my crafting session. I used all the same cardstock colors, die cut a tag and using the monster for spacing I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Thank You Senti-mini set. I popped my monster up with foam squares, added some more boiled sugar jelly drop hearts and finished it off with some twine from my stash.
I know this was a super long post today but I was really excited to share all of these project with you. I hope you’ve found some inspiration somewhere along the way.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
