Top Dog Dies Valentine Blog Hop


Hello friends!! Today is a very exciting day, the Top Dog Dies Design Team is having a super cool Valentine's Blog Hop!!  Sharing ideas so you can get inspired and create, and better yet, if you use Top Dog Dies.

If you came from Amy's blog, you are in the right spot, if not please visit the Top Dog Dies Blog to find the right order of the hop.

Now, let me show you the projects I have for you today.

I {heart} you card: Love the way this card turned out!! A little bit of shabby chic goodness. Pretty papers and stitches (I love my sewing machine).

Here are the details:
  • Make card base from White Cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from patterned Paper 3.75" x 5" and another one in contrast color 3.25" x 4.5". Die cut a piece of red cardstock using Heart Border Die, adhere it to panels and add zig zag stitches. Cut the bottom part to create a banner.
  • Die-cut a Heart Doily in Vellum textured Cardstock. Ink all edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere it to card panel with dimensionals.
  • Die-cut the I {heart} U from Heart Mini Album Finishers in red cardstock. Adhere them to heart, add 3D Crystal Lacquer to heart and then sprinkle clear glitter. Set aside to dry.

Be Mine Tag: You may know I have a little passion for Mixed Media projects! So, I thought I could share a MM project today. This is super shimmery IRL.

Here are the details:
  • Die-cut a couple of small tags from chipboard using Tag Album Die.
  • Glue tags together.
  • Paint tag with White paint (I used Snow Cap Acrylic Paint), after it dries, add African Jade Twinkling H20 paint. Set aside to dry.
  • Die-cut a Heart Doily from Patterned Paper, ink all edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Die-cut a couple of Wildflowers, 1 from White cardstock and 1 from Patterned Paper, glue them unevenly, set aside.
  • Die-cut the little tag from Alexa Frames Set using Patterned Paper, stamp sentiment in Jet Black Archival Ink (sentiment from SNSS Valentine Critters)
  • Now that your tag is dried, use a stencil, here I used a Mini Chicken Reverse Wire stencil, apply a coat of Embossing paste and set aside to dry.
  • After dries, add lace and ribbon, add doily heart to the side, wildflowers and sentiment.
  • Finish details, ink all edges of tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, ribbon, button and twine.
