Valentine's Day card by Cindy

Hi everyone,
 I really like my card today and I hope that you do too. I used a cute bee cut that I got from the Silhouette store. It's so fun to make Valentine's Day cards and I didn't use the traditional red and pink paper so that was fun!

My paper is from My Mind's Eye and I got it in the Cutters Creek paper pad club. My sentiment is from Jaded Blossom. I also used some Kaiser Pearls and red stickles. If you are interested in any of the products that I used today be sure to visit the Cutters Creek Store.
Thanks for visiting today,

Howdy-Do! By Fran


I really had fun coloring this image by Sassy Cheryl called a Simple Bunch of Flowers.  It was not hard to keep a smile on your face while coloring her.  Let me know what you think.



(Click on photo for a larger view)


Details:  Card base is 5-3/4” square.  The shape of the card was cut using a Silhouette Portrait.  Card base is made from Bazzill Basics, Simply Smooth White.  The remaining papers are from my stash. The image was colored using Inktense Paint Pencils and Copic markers for the skin (E00, Eo1, E11, & R20) my favorite colors for skin).  The buttons on the dress and shoes were accented with Enamel Accents (dimensional faux enamel) made by Inkssentials, Ranger.  I used a Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper (Deco) to create the corners of the image.  The rosette and button was cut using the Silhouette and the button is decorated with stickles and Scrappers Twine. The sentiment was created on the computer and then cut to create the banner. And I used Distress Ink to the edges of the banner.  On the image I used Glossy Accents to the centers of both flowers.  And some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter.

Supplies:    Bazzill Basics Paper

                      Stickles (starry night)

                      Tombow Adhesive

                      Glossy Accents

                      Distress Ink Pad

                      Copic Markers

I hope my card gave you some inspiration to do some coloring using digital images or your stamps.  To me coloring is so relaxing.

If there are any products noted in the Details that are not available from Cutters Creek Online Store you can always contact Kim to see if she can order it for you. I ordered my Silhouette through Kim and the process was so easy because Kim makes it easy.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you leave a comment to let me know your favorite thing on my card.

What Does the Fox Say? By Mindy

That is a very popular question lately and I think I've found the answer. I will reveal it at the end if the post.
I made a quick and easy Valentine's card using my Cricut, the Wild Card 2 cartridge, and some My Mind's Eye paper. I have to admit, that little fox is what sold me on this cartridge. 

I used some core'dinations cardstock for my base and sanded it to bring out the embossed design. I then cut the heart and the adorable little fix out of different patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye  6x6 pack. I finished the card off with some faux stitching and some googly eyes.
Now to answer everyone's question, what does the fox say?

Happy Heart Day of course, it's almost Valentine's Day!

Embossing Paste Technique card by Cindy

Hi everyone,

Today, I am sharing a project that I have up on the Cutters Creek Design Team blog. My project uses a new technique, embossing paste!
I laid my stencil on top of my card and spread the embossing paste over the stencil. I used Wendy Vecchi white paste. After it dried, I colored some of the hearts with my Copics, some with Wink of Stella and some I put Glossy Accents on top and then dumped some pretty Tim Holtz distress glitter on top of it. The heart was cut out with Sizzix Framelits and I also used My Mind's Eye paper. I attached my ruffled ribbon to the back of my heart and to my card using Scor-Tape.
If you are interested in any of the products that I used today, be sure to visit the Cutters Creek store.

Valentine's mini card by Michele

Now is the time that everyone is making Valentine cards. So what do you get for that special someone in your life that has everything. How about a mini card.

I made this mini card. I took black card stock and cut it 3x6, fold it in half and then I cut red cardstock 2 1/2 x 2 1/2.  On the white card I stamps these owls I found in my stash with black Memento ink. I colored them with my copic markers ( E11, E13, E15,RV55,RV09). I used DoodleBug Twine red, and wrapped that around the red cardstock before placing it down on the black cardstock. I used pop up dots under the owls to give it some dimension.
This is a cute mini card to give to anyone, and it was fast and easy to make. Hope you enjoyed this card. Please stop by the store to see the new products that are coming in from CHA.  Kim will be more than happy to help you find all your scrapbooking and crafting needs.

Box Card by Deanna M

Today I have a unique card for you. I call it a Box Card. I first saw this card here. There is a link on the blog to a YouTube video tutorial. Isn't this just the cutest thing ever???

To make the card, I started with a piece of Kraft card stock cut to 8 1/4" X 9". On the 9" side score your card stock at 2 1/8", 4 1/4" 6 3/8" and 8 1/2". Then turn the card stock so are scoring on the 8 1/4" side and score your card stock at 2 3/4". With the 2 3/4" score line to your left you want to cut your card stock to 6".

From the piece you just cut off, you want to cut a piece that is 3 1/8" wide, then cut that piece in half lengthwise. From there it gets a bit tricky. Still an easy card, but I would suggest you watch this tutorial video. This helps explain where to cut the card stock and how to assemble the box part of the card.

Back panel (does not get folded) red base mat is  5 7/8" X 8" and the white mat is 5 3/4" X 1 7/8". I stamped the white mat with my sentiment using Love Letters Memento ink. The heart flowers were cut using my Silhouette. I used Glossy Accents on the two heart flowers and covered the smaller on in Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter and the larger on with Festive Berries Distress Glitter. The Distress Glitters are a special order item just ask.

To cover the bottom panels cut your red mats at 2" X 3 1/8" and the patterned paper at 1 7/8" X 3". To cover the top panels cut your red mats at 2" X 2 5/8" and your patterned paper at 1 7/8" X 2 1/2".

Then decorate and embellish as you wish. I used some print and cut images cut with my Silhouette. I used the Spica Red Glitter pen to add some sparkle to my Bear Lady Bug's antenna's and to the word love on my word label. I used the Blossom Spica Pen to add sparkle to the words Never Ends.

My lady bug bear is attached to the back panel with an Action Wobble. I used my Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive and ATG gun to put the card together.

Now so you can see all sides of my card, I have a quick video for you.

Jearise's Valentine's Day Boxes

Good morning! I have started getting ready for Valentine's and love to decorate as much for this holiday as all the others. This holiday is perfect for pinks, purples and reds, flowers, lace, glitter mist and glitter glue and that is where I've gone with my projects today...

The boxes are a simple design I put together myself but it's the extras that make them perfect. I love making these little boxes to embellish and put in the window or on a ledge and then I fill them with goodies the day before. If I filled them sooner, I would eat it myself. :)

Cutter Creeks Products Used:

Scotch quick-dry adhesive used to assemble the boxes
Scotch pop up foam squares used to attach flowers to the top of boxes
Stickles glitter glue  for the designs on the top and sides of the boxes
Tattered Angels glitter mist for the flowers on the red box

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Valentines Day to you!

Smitten by Fran



I fell in love with this digital image that I used on my card and just knew I had to color her up and make a card.  I am pretty sure I will give it to my hubby for Valentine’s Day even though it has a bow on it.




Details:  My card is a standard A2 card (4.25x5.5 inches).  The base of the card is made from Bazzill Simply Smooth Cardstock 8.5"X11"-White. There 6 layers including the image layer on the front of the card.  I colored the Bazzill white layers (edges) with pink and red glitter pens.  And the black card stock is by Neenah.  The image is by Sassy Cheryl and is called Smitten. I colored her using Inktense Ink Pencils except for the skin.  I used Copic Markers to color the skin (E00, E01, E11, RV21).  The lady bug on the hat, buttons on the shoes and center of flower on the hat was accented with Inkssentials Glossy Accents.  The heart buttons were hand made using a heart mold.  Then I colored them using a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in Red.

The inside of the card is made from Neenah Black Card stock and the pink card stock is from my scraps.  The sentiment is part of the digital stamp image.  And the falling hearts were die cut to get the various sizes and colored them to match the front of the card.

The card is held together using Tombow Mono Aqua (liquid glue) and Hot glue was used to adhere the buttons and bow.

All items that are linked can be purchased at the Cutters Creek Online Store.  And if you have any questions about the products I used you can contact Kim Bush of Cutters Creek and she will be glad to assist you.

Thank you for stopping by and I would love it if you left me a comment to let me know what you think of my card.  I love reading all the comments.  And they give me incentive :)

Birthday Time With Mindy

As soon as the new year starts, so do the birthdays in my family. I always try to start on them early so they're ready to go when I need them.  
I made this card with some masculine papers from My Mind's Eye. 
The little elephant is from Create a Critter 2.  He's holding a couple of balloons attached with some floss. I can never find sentiment stamps when I need them, but I think it's pretty obvious this one is for a birthday. 
Thank you for stopping by and looking at my card. Don't forget to stop by the store and see all the great stuff Kim has for you.
