Love This Card

Love This Card:

Here’s a fun combo of the Some Kinda of Wonderful paper.  The striped paper in the pack is so subtle compared to the other bright and bold papers.  It’s a nice offset and gives this card a very different feel.  You can use this as an appreciation card or anniversary card for something different.

I added the Clear Shimmer Brush to the “Love This” sentiment for a little bling.  Also used 3 foam tape to pop up the dot.  This is one of the great background and texture papers where you can stamp on it and have it show up clearly.

Use the Gold Shimmer pen on the backs of the quail and the clear on the white parts to highlight them.  The ribbon is from the Enchanted Ribbon Collection.

The shimmer brushes add to this card if you are short on time for coloring in the quail.  I’ve seen some amazing cards with the quails colored in.  The white enameled gems are from the black and white dots which still on back order.  The great news is they will continue past the end of the Seasonal Expressions 1.

We Are Blessed

We Are Blessed

This card is made by April Smith, a guest artist and crafter who works on my creative team when I’m short on time.  I’m so blessed to have her in my life.  The stamp set is S1704 Flock Together, the April Stamp of the Month (SOM).

These cute little quails are fun to work with.  I added in the shimmer in different places because I love these pens.  They really add a little extra to the quails back.  You could color them in if you desired with our wonderful Shin Han Touch markers.

One of the hold over from the Seasonal Expression 1 will be these wonderful Black and White enameled gems.  They go with everything so you must have a stash to use.  Even adding shimmer brush to the “love this?” sentiment makes it pop a little.  This sentiment will be great to add to scrapbook layouts by a picture of something you really like.

 

The bright colors of the Some Kinda of Wonderful paper pack are bright and more summery, thus a good paper to have on hand as we go into summer time.

Together is the best

Together is the best.

A different take on yesterday’s card is to add some transparency to the card.  Using transparency on your cards adds a little fun to your card.  Here the transparency is under the sentiment, “Together is the best place to be.”  Cut the front of the off at the 1/3 mark and adhere the transparency to the top of this.  Add your Some Kinda of Wonderful paper on top of that with the shimmer trim.

Then add the paper to the bottom of the transparency and shimmer trim on top of this.  I really like using black as a neutral color to this because it makes the bright colors pop.  You want to leave the strip of transparency through the middle of the card.  You will stamp on the inside of the card so the sentiment “Love This” shows through it.  Together, the transparency and stamp underneath, create a nice effect of being a window.  Place the circles on top of the transparency on the left side.

Add some of the black and white embellishments to the sentiment panel for some extra bling.
