Stamperia Alice Collection Double Z Fold Card

I’m not a scrapbooker, or even a mixed media artist so I rarely buy 12×12 collections. But this Alice collection by Stamperia really hit it out of the park for me. I love that there are different panels ready to use on your project, but also within the full 12×12 images there are lots of images that can be cut too.

As soon as I saw this Alice collection I knew it would be perfect for a Double Z fold card layout. This is an A2 size card, but even with the larger 12×12 scale Stamperia’s collection really worked for this fold. I can’t wait to try more fancy folds with this collection & the paper I have remaining!

Prima Marketing Fruit Paradise Cards

Summer is in full swing and I was really inspired to use this Fruit Paradise collection from Prima. This collection was a mix of shabby chic antiquities images with soft florals and vintage looking fruit images. The chipboard & ephemera really complimented the vintage inspired paper collection and it was really easy to make use of all the elements for these cards. I really love their enamel dots with hints of metallic flakes; they really deliver & very much worth the investment!

Crazy Cat Lady Card with Photoplay Paper Whiskers Collection

Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!

I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies.  This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post.  🙂

 

 

 

PhotoPlay Paper Man Card Paper Collection Masculine Card

Wow does time fly!! It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been keeping up on Facebook and Instagram!

A super quick and easy masculine card, this Photoplay “Man Card” paper collection was perfect! I used gold foil to mat my layers on top of a woodgrain stamped cardstock base.  Gold metal dots finished off the card nicely and tied all the layers together.

I used the scraps to make the coordinating envelope – having a custom made coordinating envelope really adds that extra touch of personalization  🙂

LawnFawnatics Inaugural  Challenge: Happy Birthday

Everyone who knows me, knows my absolute favorite stamp company is, and has been for many many years: Lawn Fawn.  When I saw that Lawn Fawn had created a new challenge blog, called Lawn Fawnatics, I knew I had to play along! Their first challenge theme is: Birthday.  Since it coincided with their 7 year birthday it was a perfect match.

Here is my card I made – all supplies I used can be found at the end of post.

Simon Says Stamp Squirrel Nutty About You Thank You Card

Simon Says Stamp monthly card kits are always fun, but as an avid crafter I find I already have a lot of the supplies in the kit, so I usually just order the kit items a la carte. Except October’s kit. I needed EVERYTHING in that kit!! From the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid fall 6×6 paper, to the gorgeous audrey blue & burnt orange card stock, I needed it ALL!!

I ordered the kit and had a blast re-creating the projects that the design team had created from the inspiration sheet that is included with the kit.
This card however, I made on my own for my osteo path who has helped me tremendously! I am forever grateful to her and wanted to send her a thank you note to let her know.

This card uses the audrey blue card stock for my base color to punch it up a bit and add some color to off set all the brown.  I inked up my die cut Lawn Fawn stitched leaves with distress inks to give them a bit of dimension and really help the stitching pop as well. For the stitching detail around the card I used a dark brown marker rather than black – it tied everything together nicely and kept it a CAS card as I was intending.

I loved how this card turned out, and the best part is it would be easy to mass produce if you needed a lot of thank you cards too.

Thanks for stopping by & checking out my project – your comments & feedback are always welcome & appreciated!
