I am a huge fan of Lori's designs, so I was tickled to be able to create a few things to share on the Silhouette Blog this week!
First, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. And I don't even have all my Christmas decorations put away yet (gasp!).
Here's a fun pop-up design card I created using this new shape from Lori:
- First, I die cut the "pop-up" design out of white American Crafts cardstock. I didn't make any size adjustments to the design before cutting.I trimmed 1/8" from 2 sides of the folded card using my paper trimmer.
- Next, "ungrouped" the card image and removed all the inside cutting lines and cut the card again out of red Stampin' Up Cardstock, then scored and folded the card in half.
- I adhered the white "pop-up" card inside the solid red card. I trimmed it down so that no white would be visible once it was adhered inside the red card.
- I die cut the modern flower from green Stampin' Up cardstock and die cut the cute heart set several times from pink, red, blue and white Stampin' Up and American Crafts cardstock.
- I die cut the tag from white cardstock. *tip* I cut a bunch of these white tags out of one sheet of paper. I only needed one for this card but it will be nice to have a bunch on hand for the next time I need one!*
- Now the fun part: I simply layered the hearts and flowers on the card front and added gems. On the inside pop up, I layered more hearts and gems. I stamped a greeting on the inside of the card and also on the tag. Then, I tied the tag to the flower stem with string.

And how about one more Valentine project (just because I love the rhinestones so much)...
Made this long sleeve tee for Payton to wear for Valentine's Day. She loves it and I didn't have to spend a bunch on one of those expensive (but darling) tees you see in all the stores. I picked this tee up at Wal-Mart for maybe $4. I bought several. They are cheap and they are made of a nice material, perfect for adding rhinestones, fabric appliques, heat transfers, etc.
- I imported all three designs into the Silhouette Craft ROBO software. *tip* You CAN NOT change the size of the Rhinestone Designs. They are sized specifically for the rhinestones.
- Then I deleted the flourishes I didn't need (the medium & large ones) and I was left with the small flourish. I positioned it underneath the "valentine" design.
- Next I placed a heart cluster above the word "valentine". I copied and pasted the image and moved it below the word and used the "ungroup" feature to removed a heart, then I "grouped" the image and rotated the hearts a bit to add interest.
- I cut the design out of the template material, added the rhinestones (pink, red & clear), then used the transfer paper to pick them up and iron them to the tee.

Be sure to check back on Friday. I have another Silhouette project to share as part of Stampin' Fun Friday (it's a little stampin' and a little Silhouette with Rhinestones all in one!).
Have a great day!
