Below are some "Thank you" cards I made a couple of weeks ago. I used DCWV Summer Dream paper. I just can't get enough of that paper. Martha Stewart Flower Bed and EK Success Le Flower Burst punches were used to create edges. Acetate paper was used to provide a sturdy base behind punched design. Micheal's Recollection flower and leaf was used on the green card. The cream scalloped edged square was die cut using my Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Squares Small dies and the burgundy paper was ran through my Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Script embossing folder. The red and blue card thank you was cut using Nestabilities Small Labels and accented with brads on the corner. Silver UT embossed Bracket is from Bazzill Basics Paper Chips.
Chulo Smit-ten is about my nephew playing outside in Spring 2008. I was trying to walk the tight rope of not making an extremely famine but elegant layout. I am using an 8x8 in canvas to create the layout. Baby Pink (633) Folk Art paint was used as the base color. Canvas was then highlighted with Metallic Antique Cooper paint and sprayed with Glimmer Mist Frost. A thick coat of Tim Holtz Distress Picket Fence crackle paint was used over the surface of the canvas and dried with the hot heating gun. Once crackle paint was dried the canvas was lightly brushed with Folk Art Metallic Inca Gold. The Tradewinds paper from DCWV is seen as burgundy pieces of paper. These pieces were torn and rolled inwards. DCWV Cafe Mediterranean is the green paper that was torn and used as 2nd matting paper. My Minds Eye Lost of & Found paper, 1rst matting, was torn, crumpled, and sanded.
Michael's Recollections lace was used at the bottom of the layout. The words "Chulo" was welded with my Gypsy cut out using my Cricut Expression on DCWV Cafe Mediterranian paper. The words were then highlighted with Tim Holtz Peeled Pain Stamp ink. The word smitten is from the Making Memories 2004 collection.
Orange flower is from Michael's Recollections and leaves are from I am Roses (Thainland).
Prima Say it in Crystal and Pearls was used around the layout to accent layout.
Sentiment was provided by DCWV Vellum Quote Stacks. The bottom edges were torn and saying was ran through my Xron 510.
Spring 2008 tag was altered from saying Spring 2003 and is from a Making Memories kit I purchased in 2003 from QVC. The bumble bee hiding behind the flower is being a held with a brad and was purchased online.
I'm back. Here is a new mini album created out of 3.25 x 6.5 paper bags. I adhered them together using my ATG General purpose glue. The album was painted with Folk Art Paint (Blue) and then highlighted with Antique Brown Metallic Paint. The paper used is My Minds Eye Lost and Found. Items used inside is Prima, Michael's Reflections Bling (See Reflections gone Mad Video), K&Company card, I am roses, lace, trim, and ribbon. I hope you enjoy.
