This looks like the Carta Bella collection from yesterday, but I don’t think it all is. Some may be though. I love the gold accents in this one with the sentiment and heart from my stash. I also love the vellum leaves that I added in there. A dainty little card. I hope you like it.
C’mon over to the MTCC blog and play along with us. The rest of the DT have some great projects for you to check out too!
I was playing with the left over bits from a sampler that had been sitting on my desk. I think that this is Carta Bella Floral Market. I love this collection! It’s so pretty. I’m not sure if my big floral is part of the collection but it was in the same bag and so I fussy cut them out to make a focal point for this one. I just added some confetti from Studio Katia and enamel dots and big bold dots to finish it off.
I hope you enjoy the card and be sure to stop by the TMS blog for the great inspiration that the Design Team has come up with for this sketch! Be sure to play along!
Sorry it’s been awhile everyone. I’ve been so busy getting situated in my new job and then I took another part time job so not a whole lot of free time at the moment. I hope to settle into a routine soon and then squeeze in my crafting time on a regular basis!
Ok, so. New challenge at Use Your Stuff….theme is die cuts! I’d be hard pressed to find someone that doesn’t have one or two die cuts of something in your stash…could be an image, a shape, a word sentiment ….
Now I was at a crop last month and I did a make and take with these gorgeous 3D die cuts! I’m using a autumn one but I did end up buying some Christmas ones to use on future projects. They are from Hearty Crafts and I just love them!
So the background is just some watercoloring with inks and then the sentiment is from my stash as well as the Nuevo Drops. That 3D die cut is fabulous isn’t it!
Now the DT has some great projects on the blog for you to check out and we want you to play along with us too! Show us what die cuts you have hanging around your desk right now and make something from it!
I decided to go with a different orientation for my card than the sketch! I’ve been playing with some new dies that I’ve had sitting on my desk for awhile. I believe the FRIEND is from one of my SCT samplers. The butterfly one I got recently and honestly, I thought it cut the butterflies out openly but I’m kinda glad it doesn’t. This gives you the option of leaving them closed or adjusting the wings a little bit.
The paper is just a plaid from Lawn Fawn and then the little iridescent confetti is Studio Katia. I decided to use some ribbon from my desk instead of the banner for the middle to anchor my sentiment. I’m loving this black embossed background and then these soft subtle colors.
Ok, now it’s your turn. Head over to the blog, play along with our challenge and be sure to check out the projects from the DT.
Hello all! It’s Tuesday Tuesday. Skip on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and you will find this week’s awesome sketch to play along with!
A great, fun sketch and easy to play along with.
Still playing with my October 2019 SCT sampler, I used papers from the Pebbles This is Family Collection. I also used the puffy sentiment sticker that came in my sample and I added some gold enamel dots from my collection. The flowers I’m sure you recognize from earlier cards. I had a lot of these flowers printed off and they make great focal points for cards!
Be sure to stop by our blog and see the rest of the great cards from the design team using this week’s sketch and I hope you will play along with us too!
Ready for day 3 of my Spring Card Class? We were doing some gel press techniques. I have to be honest. I’ve had a gel press for about 6 years ( a gift in my goodie bag from a crop I attended) and this is the first time I’ve used it. I have no idea why I never used it before as it really is a lot of fun and it’s so unique!
We paired the gel press with some embossing as well, again something that I don’t do near enough (although it did make me realize I don’t have any clear embossing powder in my stash….say what???? )
I needed some birthday cards to send out, so I focused on that sentiment but really mixed and matched here.
The left card is using some Gina K stamps and sentiment (you’ve seen this set before from another online class I did last year), with a Plaid Crafts stencil to add an extra layer of texture to the gel pressed panel.
On the right we have some gel press and watercoloring and it is paired with a stamp and die set from SCT delivered online (this is part of an online card class from the spring that I haven’t finished yet so stay tuned for another card with this set). This one I brayed the watercolored ink and then added the panel onto the gel press. It gave me some lighter and darker parts, which I think adds some great interest to this card. I did some gold embossing and I love the gold on this!
Our flat card, which was actually my first gel press panel, I cut out the flowers using a CTMH stamp and die set (again from a previous online card class) which had been heat embossed with some gold embossing powder.
The inks were from Your Next Stamp for this one. I went with some pink/purple/teal combo, which is a little out of my wheelhouse but I love it with the gold embossing!
Get out your gel press and have some fun with it! There is no right or wrong way ( I even left a little ink on mine for the next batch).
Need a sketch to jumpstart? Well head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and see this week’s challenge sketch and the great inspiration that the Design Team has sorted out for you!
I really like this one! I went a bit crazy with some layers for this one. I challenged myself to just use whatever was in arm’s reach of my desk, so I used a lot of stuff from my stash box for this card.
You know I love the layers so I used an embossing folder for my green layer and then went to down with some doily and flowers that I cut in half. I also have a layered sentiment die and then some gemstones, stickers and twine to finish it off.
How will you interpret this sketch? Come by the blog and show us!
This looks like a slimline but the DT has created some great examples of an A2 design with it and Raechelle has incorporated it into her layout, which is pretty cool!
I, myself, went the slimline route with this one.
I love this milkjug die that I’ve had in my stash for a bit. It’s fun to pull out and fill it with some awesome things. This time, I used some left over bits from a Simple Stories Simple Vintage Indigo Garden collection. I did some layout displays for the Scrapshotz booth at Creative Scrapbooker Carnival over the weekend and I knew I had a few bit left that would work for a card as well.
The DP is just from my stash but I love this color palette and I think it turned out well. Be sure to stop by the blog to see the DT and to play along with us this week.
Hello one and all. I’m slowly trying to get back into the groove but I will admit this Covid thing is kicking my butt.
Over on the Dragonfly Dreams blog our new challenge for the month of May is up. We are being sponsored by Fred She Said this month and our theme is Butterflies and/or Flowers.
I got to play with these awesome pre colored images and I must say, there were a lot!
I really love this card!
So I decided to go with a slimline and used my Studio Katia slimline dies for this card. I printed out an assortment of the flowers and butterflies for this card and then made a fun cluster. The HAPPY die cut is from my stash and the HELLO is from Gina K. I added a few little bling as well. You can’t tell from the photo but a few of the phtos have some Wink of Stella and I also went over a couple of them with a white gel pen to give it a little more depth.
I hope that you will play along with us and be sure to check out the amazing projects the design team has created to inspire you!
