ABC’S Blog Hop ~ L

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “L”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “L” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LAUREN MOORE’S Blog  then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Linda’s blog HERE.

I was trying to think about what would be a fun “L” element….. I was inspired by a new die I had seen in a magazine and really wanted to use it. How could I incorporate it into this hop…. LANDSCAPE!!!  So my “L”s are LANDSCAPE and LAGOON.

Ice Cream Dreams ~ ABC's L ~ Slidder card ~ catscrapbooking.com I found this cool metal die by The Cat’s Pajamas ~ Slider so I could make easy slider cards.  I made a slid in the Lagoon Fundamental paper.  I also used the Thistle Fundamental paper to make the pull tab as well as the awning for the Ice Cream Truck.  I used my blending pen to color the truck.

Ice Cream Dreams ~ ABC's L ~ Slidder card inside ~ catscrapbooking.comI used foam tape to attach the Lagoon Fundamental to give room for the card to slide.  Since I attached this to a card base I still have the inside of the card to write my message to my recipient.

Products used for this project:

  • Fundamental Paper Pack ~ Adventure and Whimsy
  • Cardstock ~ White Daisy, Thistle, and Canary
  • Inks ~ Momento Black, Pear, Canary, Slate, Lagoon, Thistle and Pixie
  • Embellishments ~ Clear Sparkle Assortment and Pink Shimmer trim
  • Stamp Set ~ Ice Cream Dream S1506 (only available the month of June 2015)

I love IRIS FOLD cards and decided to use this for my “I” element.  Since I am a veterinarian I am drawn to animal related artwork.  I also know there is an unfortunate need for sympathy cards.  I had a reminder  this past week with the passing of one of our family members. So in Neeko’s memory I designed these cards.

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ D

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog hop! ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “D”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “D” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from DIANA SANDERS Blog then you are in the right place.

Today for my “D” element I have choose DAFFODILS.  I love the new stamp set A Little Note A1171.  You can see it featured on page 23 of the Seasonal Expressions One.  I so love the card displayed on that page.  I have been meaning to design my own cards for some time so this was the perfect excuses.  I actually designed three cards using this stamp set.

A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~ catscrapbooking.com

This one was simple just using Topiary and Canary cardstock to double frame the Daffodils and then putting on Kraft cardstock.  I used the Yellow diamond washi tape on White Daisy cardstock then split it down the center.

Blushed ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this card I though the Brushed paper pack would coordinate wonderfully with this stamp set.  I used the topiary washi as accent.

Hopscotch ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~catscrapbooking.comThis is my favorite!   I know I have said this so many times but I absolutely love the Hopscotch paper pack and knew it would be great for this card.   I used Glacier to back the stamped White Daisy cardstock with Flaxen Extra Thick Twine to accent the design.

Supplies used for all cards:

  • Paper Packs ~ Hopscotch X7194B, Brushed X7190B
  • Cardstock ~ Glaicer, Canary, Topary, White Daisy and Kraft
  • ShinHan Markers ~ Pastel Green Z2459, Sap Green Z2463, Golden Yellow Z2452, and Maragold Z2457
  • Embellishments ~ Flaxen Extra Thick Twine Z3036. Junebug Puffies Z3038, Honey Triangles Washi Z1931 and Topiary Stripe Washi Z2002

I have been on a roll of completed some layouts that I have had waiting to be completed.  For this layout I had the paper and the photos just not the layout design yet.  When I was trying to decide on a “B” element I though of one of the stamp sets I really like Bodacious Banners and knew I wanted to focus on this.  I then was looking though my stack of layouts to complete and saw this one and knew it would be perfect with the Brown, Blue and green.
