Love using die cuts to make cards. I used some silver foil card stock to die cut these from the Spellbinders Oval Ironworks die set. I layered them using foam tape and stamped a sentiment with black ink on the inside oval. I added gems in the four spots and then tied some silver ribbon in a bow to the top of the card. As a finishing touch I adhered a black and white striped butterfly to the bottom left section of the card. I adhered all the elements onto a top folding white card base that measure 4.25 by 5.5. So simple but so gorgeous.

My Monthly Hero card kit 2 cards byMonti thepolkadotpinecone

Made two cards using the Hero Arts My monthly hero card kit for February. The first card I stamped and embossed the feather stamps from the kit with white embossing powder and the did an emboss resist with my distress oxide inks in a rainbow order. Next I stamped the bird and branch images using the inks that came in the kit and then die cut them with the dies. I adhered them on the panel with foam tape and then added some sequins from a previous hero arts kit and then added a dot of Ranger black enamel for the birds eye. I trimmed my whole panel using a stitched rectangle die from Avery Elle then adhered the whole thing with foam tape to a top folding white A2 size card base.

The second card I die cut some eggs, nest , and leafs from the My Monthly Hero kit. I inked the edges and then wrapped some white eyelash yarn around the nest to look like nesting material and then added the eggs inside. I adhered some more brown twine on the outside of the nest and then added the flower and leaves. I spritzed the whole nest with some gold spray that was from a previous months kit. I then used some Spellbinders decorative curved squares to cut a couple of layers of paper from blue and green card stock. I layered those with foam tape and then added my nest on top. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold which was from a stamp set by Crafty Secrets. I added the whole thing on top of a piece of blue mulberry paper and then affixed that to a white top folding card base that measures 5×5.

Hope you like them, I had a lot of fun making them.

Birthday themed pocket letter for February swap with Marsha. I used the Bella Rouge paper stack from Pink Paislee.

I also made a cute little matching box to fill with goodies using the Box w/scallop flap from Sizzix and some coordinating paper from the same paper line.

I attached a really cool charm on the top corner of the pocket letter that had tassels, hearts and ribbons.

Crafty card I made using the #SSS February card kit and Crafty Friend stamp set. I used the orange patterned paper from the kit as my base and then added a piece of white card to stamp my scissors and dotted line with stamps from the kit in a rainbow color using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. I then stamped the hello greeting using another stamp from the set and then mounted on top of another label I cut from black and white striped paper. I mounted that with foam tape and then added the scissors wood piece from the kit on top. In the top right corner I cut a couple of banners from patterned paper and then stapled them in place. I finished off the card by adding some dots with my perfect pearls in Pumpkin color to match the orange patterned paper I used for the base. I then mounted the whole thing on a top folding white card base for a finished A2 size card.

#simonsaysstamp card kit Favorite Person cards Valentine Love byMonti thepolkadotpinecone

Two cards I made using the #simonsaysstamp January card kit Favorite Person. The kit had so many cute products included with it. On the aqua card I thought that silver would look better with the patterned paper I was using from the kit so I embossed the sides of the piffy sticker embellishments with silver to match(they had a gold trim on them). I also cut a heart out and embossed it twice with silver embossing powder and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with the same silver powder.

The black and red card is my favorite, I used my window die to cut out squares and then I cut the patterned paper piece from the kit into small squares and backed them with gold glitter squares and them mounted them in the window frame with foam squares for dimension. Then I cut some other pieces from the patterned paper to use as banners and hung them from the window ledge. I topped that off with a red heart from the sticker pack that came with the kit.
