How to Make A Faceted Watercolor Heart Magnet

DIY Die Cut Watercolor Heart Magnet Tutorial (Video)

Have you used the Silhouette Adhesive Magnet Paper? I only used it for the first time last year. It’s very cool stuff, and in today’s video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to use it to make this fun and colorful faceted heart ornament.

This project starts in Silhouette Studio, where I ungroup the faceted heart ornament cut files and separate them into three files: one for the base, which I cut from the magnet paper; one for all of the facets minus one, which I cut from Strathmore Bristol; and a final facet, which I cut from gold foil cardstock. I like to group the pieces that I’m cutting from different materials into different files as I’m working, so there’s less confusion when I’m ready to actually cut everything.

After I cut all of the pieces from their respective materials, I’m ready to start watercoloring the facets of the heart. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for this, and I love these things! They work wonderfully with the Strathmore Bristol Vellum paper, which is a very smooth mixed media paper.

After all of the watercolored facets are completely dry, I remove the protective paper from the magnet, and adhere all of the facets in place. This comes together pretty quickly. I only spent about 5 minutes assembling the final piece.

Silhouette Cameo cut settings for the Strathmore Bristol & gold foil cardstock : Depth = 7 // Speed = 1 // Thickness = 33 // Double Cut

Silhouette Cameo cut settings for the Adhesive Magnet Paper : Depth = 6 // Speed = 1 // Thickness = 33 // Double Cut

DIY Rainbow Letter Die Cut Thank You Card (with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens)

DIY Rainbow Letter Die Cut Thanks Card

There’s just something about rainbows that’s endlessly magical, and I’ve been lovin’ on them since I was a kid. I was lucky enough to grow up in the 80’s, so there were rainbows (manmade, at least) all over the place. I even had rainbow legwarmers, which were one of my prized possessions. And don’t even get me started on my sticker book.

This thank you card features rainbows in letter form, with awesome colors courtesy of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. The colors on these brush pens are so wonderful and vibrant, and they don’t seem to dull at all when they’re dry. Big thumbs up to that!

For this card, I used the negative areas of the die cut letters to make a template that helped me quickly glue the colored letters in place. Clear dimensional adhesive foam popped up the “thanks”, which I cut from gold foil cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.

* these dies sold out very quickly and are difficult to find in stock, but MFT does have other, non-stitched alpha dies that would also be great for this project, and you could also digitally die cut the letters using a tall, thin font like Bebas Neue or Ostrich Sans Black, which are both free fonts.

Rainbow Card Die Cuts Tip

Cascading Rainbow Card Die Cuts from k.becca

If you’ve picked up the new Cascading Rainbow Card Front, then you might be looking at the cut files and wondering why in the world there’s a plain rectangle included. Good question, and here’s the answer:

Rainbow Card Die Cuts Tip

The rectangular piece is the base for the rainbow. I thought that it would be much easier for you to assemble the rainbow and center it on the front of your cards if I included a base piece as a guide. Plus, with the base, the rainbow becomes a standalone element and can be attached to all sorts of things, not just cards.

Rainbow Card Die Cuts : Step 1

Simply glue all of your rainbow pieces onto the base, and you’re good to go!

Rainbow Card Die Cuts : Step 2

Add the sleepy cloud, and you’re finished with this cute card. And, yeah, I totally attached the rainbow backwards, but it’s still fun and colorful, right?
