Today I'm sharing two cards I made to play along with a couple challenges that feature alphabet letters and sentiments!
For my first card I sprinkled a bit of Ken Oliver's Colorburst (in Lime Green) onto watercolor paper, spritzed it with water and heat set it. I then laid my Lace Stencil (Tim Holtz) over the corners and applied gesso. The extra large sentiment is cut using the Sizzix letter set Nouveau and a few gold sequins accent the corners.
For my second card, I laid the lace stencil (Tim Holtz idea-ology) over my watercolor paper, tapped out a bit of lime green color burst, spritzed and then dried it with my heat gun. This simpler card has a tiny baker's twine bow across the top and the oversized sentiment in the bottom corner.
These cards were fairly quick to make and remind me of springtime when everything starts turning green again--can't wait!
Today I’m sharing a lovely little pocket card I created for the CropStop Blog.
DIRECTIONS: Step One: Cut a piece of kraft cardstock into a 4.25 x 9.75 inch strip. Step Two: Score at 4.25 inch mark (with Scor-Buddy) fold on scored line. Step Three: Sew or glue the sides to form a pocket for your mini card to fit in.
My little (5 x 3.5 inch) card features matching paper from The Blue Barn
paper stack (The Paper Studio), another punched lace border, a stamped
rooster from the Rustic Rooster (Stampin’ Up) set, a navy burlap string bow, and a strip of pearls in the top left corner. I also used some Antique Linen (Distress Ink) to lightly stamp the fence stamp over the rooster image.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun way to create a decorative pocket for your cards. I’d love to see your take on this technique, so drop by our CURRENT CHALLENGE and link up!
Today I'm sharing a clean and layered card I created in with a masculine vintage theme. I used several Tim Holtz stamps and a fun embossed mini notebook page to create a collage on my distressed kraft panel.
