Thank You... A Tape Runner project

 HI there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a couple projects I made that I did not plan on making, however so happy to have the ideal resources to be able to do so. 

Backstory: So for a few days I had been having internet issues at the house, resulted in multiple calls to the company and having to exchange the modem. Well, that didn't help at all. A tech came yesterday and was trying to see what he could do to fix, and said they will have to send maintenance tech out and repair, as whatever the issue is, is effecting the entire block. I wasn't too thrilled as I had already missed some work because of the issue (full time job at home), and that this was hurting my stats. He said it could take up to a week to get it fixed. 
Well, he asked me as he is seeing the markers, stamps, dies, machines and photo lights in my room what I do, and I told him what my full time position is, and that I create greeting cards as my part time position... 

Next thing I knew, we were discussing his upcoming wedding and needing Thank you Cards. He told me the colors of the wedding are Navy and Rose Gold. I pulled out a few cards recently made and showed him what I could do. I told him to give me a little bit and I'd work on a few samples for him in his colors to give him the real feel. I used Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock and Recollections Rose Gold Foil Cardstock Paper, along with the Stitched Hearts Cover Plate Die from Kat Scrappiness, Heart Sunburst A2 Coverplate and Thank you with Shadow die. I used Vellum for the shadow. Balune Tape Runner Permanent Adhesive was perfect for this job. By the time I was finished, I sent him 5 options, and the Heart Sunburst with Navy Frame and Rose Gold Backing with Navy words won... I am now under contract for 75 of these fun cards. 

This is so exciting as I get to share my passion with so many and on top of that, my internet is back to where it should be. So what I was told could take a week took 24 hours. Back to work tomorrow since today was my day off anyway!!!

Love You More... A Maker's Movement Project

 Hi there friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my February project for The Makers Movement. 

For this project I used the Forever & Always paper pad, A2 Stackables Die Set, Roses Die Set,  Love You More Stamp set and Love You More Die set. I love being able to combine many items into one project. 

To make this, I first found the pattern paper I wanted to use for my background, and ran it through my Big Shot with the A2 Stackables Die Set and cut out my panel, love the stitching that was  left behind. 

I then used a shimmer cardstock to cut out 2 sets of the roses, added some cardstock to the back of them and then  inlayed each piece of the roses to fill in the frame. This way I had 2 red with why inlay  and 1 white with red inlay. 

The next step was to stamp the word love using VersaFine CLAIR in Nocturne. This was then cut with the love die. I stamped the words You More using VersaMark, which is a clear sticky ink, and poured on White Embossing Powder. I followed that up using my heat tool to melt the embossing powder. 

The elements were now ready and my card was put together using Tape Runner Knock. I love this little  thing, not only because of the color (green), but also I used foam tape to pop some elements up. 

I hope you have enjoyed this project today, as I have certainly enjoyed making it.
