Hello Honey Bee friends!! While we await the new Vintage Love release on January 31, it gives me the chance to pull out previously released favorite sets to create with. Today my card is all about heart and home and features the Spring Cottage Village Honey Cuts and No Place Like Home sentiments.
Often, when I am using products that I’ve used before, I like to try to think of something different to do. This time I used a sheet of beautiful paper from the Marvelous Moments paper pad. I chose the paper that has a flower border around three sides. I trimmed one end of the paper to 4-¼” x 5-½” and glued it to an A2 card base. My “something different” is to use my scissors to trim around the flowers of the remaining piece of the paper. When I had it all trimmed, I added thin foam dots to the flower border and adhered it in the bottom left corner of the card.
Next I chose a cottage from the Spring Cottage Village Honey Cuts and cut the pieces from 80# Neenah. I used various inks in my stash that coordinate with the patterned paper colors to color the cottage elements. I used glue with a fine tip, and my reverse tweezers, to assemble the cottage.
I die cut a Stacking Hearts die from 80# Neenah and used removable tape to mask off the bottom so I could add green ink with a blender brush. Before I removed the mask, I added ink splatters in the same green ink diluted with a drop or two of water. Then I masked off the green and repeated the steps with blue ink.
I used glue to adhere the cottage and tree to the ink blended heart. Next I chose a coordinating solid paper in the Marvelous Moments paper pad and die cut a Scallop Hearts from it. I glued it to the card base and the other heart on top with foam dots.
Have you ever trimmed part of your patterned paper to pop up on your card? This was my first time, and I really like the look and hope you do too! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful and crafty day!
