Hello and welcome aboard our Thin Cuts Close to My Heart Blog Hop. This is a new adventure for me, an Australian Maker, joining in with some of the North American Makers in their blog hop. If you have arrived here from Becca_Expressions then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today I would like to share with you some creations which feature some of the Close To My Heart’s Thin Cuts (or dies in non CTMH speak).
For these cute “handbag cards” I’ve used the CTMH Purse Card Thin Cuts (Z5033). This set comes with all the little details – the buckle, the bag tag, the bow etc. For the main body of these cards I’ve cut the pieces from cardstock and added the patterned top flap cut from papers from the Holly & Ivy Collection (X7273B). I’ve added a gold glitter star, cut on my cricut, to one of the bag tags, on another I’ve used a flower from the Layered Flowers Thin Cuts (Z4324). With the flower I cut the base layer from Papaya Glitter Paper (Z2543). The bow is cut from Scarlet Glitter Paper (Z3839) with a Gold Glitter Gem added to the centre. Whilst you can see the insides – I’ve cut gift card tabs using the Gift Card Tabs thin Cuts (Z5036).
I am loving these Cupcake Card Thin Cuts (Z5034). They make a fabulous card, but I could also see them used as party invitations, place cards at parties, on my scrapbook layouts to celebrate birthdays etc. This particular trio were designed to help showcase a lot of our beautiful specialty papers. The middle cupcake uses both Twinkle Toes Holographic Paper (Z3674) and Copper Ore Paper (Z3880). Whilst the other two use Silver Foil Paper (Z3366) over cardstock and patterned papers. The sparkly chocolate icing is Mocha Glitter Paper (Z2540) and the sprinkles are Bitty Beads glued in with Liquid Glass. I love how the glitter paper hid the fact that I applied a bit too much Liquid Glass. The pink icing has glitter paper sprinkles, and the cherry is a mix of glitter paper with a cardstock stem that is coated in Liquid Glass to both make it shine, but also to make it more rigid. The white icing is the Pearl Paper (Z3881), again with glitter paper sprinkles. The candle is a mix of Scarlet Glitter Paper for the flames and White Daisy cardstock coated in Moon Dust Stickles Glitter Gel (Z3806).
All the thin cuts used in these creations are available, WSL, for the life of the 21/22 Annual Catalogue. Please contact your Maker to purchase. If you do not have a Maker please contact me or place an order here. (For any North American Visitors, sorry I’m only allowed to sell to Australian’s at this stage.)
Until next time,
