Clearsnap / Ann Butler Blog Hop + Prizes!

I’m glad to be part of today’s Ann Butler Designs and Clearsnap‘s Lovely Crafts Hop. Designers from both companies will be sharing Valentine’s projects using Clearsnap’s products by Ann Butler! I am sure you’ll enjoy seeing all the different things created for you!

I am sharing a mini Valentine’s card idea that I think would look great added to a treat bag or a chocolate box!

I made a few handmade flowers that I die cut from cardstock I stamped and heat embossed in silver previously with a Background Basics stamp. Once I put the the flowers together, I inked them with Berry and Lilac Crafter’s Inks.

I die cut a label that I stenciled with a bit of Berry ink. I heat embossed a Valentine’s greeting in silver on the label too. You should know that Crafter’s ink works great for heat embossing neatly. I stopped using embossing ink and instead I only use Snow Crafter’s Ink to heat emboss.

I also stenciled a square mat for the background using the NEW Lattice Ann Butler Art Screen. I used an art dauber to apply a mix of Berry and Lilac ink. Once stenciled I heat embossed the mat with Colorbox clear embossing powder.

Finally I put the card together, adding the flowers to one side of the label and decorating them with rhinestones, as well as mounting a pretty cupid die cut on the side and a piece of ribbon.

I hope you liked my Valentine’s card. Every supply used to make my card is linked below! Before you go make sure you visit the blogs listed below for more inspiration. Leave a nice comment on each blog for a chance to win a prize from Clearsnap!
