Floral Music

I seriously cannot get enough of this set! I LOVE it! I grew up playing the piano on a very beginner level. I sold my piano when I was in my early 20’s because I didn’t want to move it. I sadly have lost my touch when reading music, but I love hearing music played on the piano! What is your favorite type of musical instrument?

I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month! You can always add a valentine sentiment (or which ever one you need). We just stamped the music staff and treble clef with Black Memento and added notes. Then, we colored the inside of the heart with the Poppy Parade dark Blends. We added Dimensionals to pop up the Whisper White piece.

The Peaceful Poppies DSP makes such a beautiful back drop for any card! You almost don’t need stamps! (eek!) TIP: To make bows effortlessly, place a glue dot under where you start your knot. This will hold it while you loop your bow!

Music in my Heart

I swear it was just October! The holidays were crazy busy and my craft room was a disaster area! But, I am re-organized and re-energized! I am making some improvements to my blog and my events this year!

I finally was able to play with my pre-order goodies from the Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog! The Music from the Heart stamp set was top on my wish list! I grew up playing the piano (not well, but I could do it) and I love all types of music! I have fond memories with songs and pieces from over the years! With Valentine’s Day fast approaching (yes, I know-crazy!), I wanted to create a card with a musical vibe!

First, I stamped the music notes and hearts onto a piece of Whisper White. I then cut a 5″x 3 3/4″ piece of the From My Heart DSP from the middle of the longer side to the midline of the piece of DSP. I created the folds by creasing them with my bone folder. I placed a Glue Dot under the flaps so they would stay down. Then I adhered that piece onto the stamped Whisper White piece to look like music was coming out of the opening. I used Basic Black as a mat on top of a Real Red card base.

Next, I stamped the piano on a scrap piece of Whisper White and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes dies. I colored it with the Basic Black and Real Red dark blends. I adhered it with dimensionals and adorned it with Basic Rhinestones. Inside was stamped with the treble clef and a love sentiment. That way it can be used for more than a Valentine’s Day card!
