Dream Pop Thank You Cards

For all of you who purchased the Dream Pop paper pack when it was available a few months ago here are a few cards I designed using this paper.  I realized I had used up almost all of my thank you cards so with Christmas here I knew I would need some more.  So when I was looking for inspiration the Dream Pop paper is what called to me.

Dream Pop Thank you card_2

For this card I used a pinwheel die to make the pinwheel.  I used the Juniper Sparkle & Shine Washi tape for the bottom.  The Thank you is from the Banner Wishes B1438 stamp set.  I also incorporated a few of the Aqua dots for some interest.

For this card I used my 2″ circle punch to make circles and then positioned those circles back through the punch to make two pedals.  Each circle will make two pedals. I then used the top strip from some of the Dream Pop papers and one of the patterns to make the strip at the bottom of the card. The thank you and circle stamp is from a retired stamp set Tag the Occasion.  Here it are some of the variations I created:

November Card Workshop

Would you like to get a few of your holiday cards done then this is the perfect card workshop for you.  The workshop will be held Tuesday November 19th at 6:30 pm.  I have four holiday cards with the Sparkle and Shine paper.   I have to admit there have been so many beautiful cards created out there by so many talented consultants.  I was so impressed by them that I decided to make my one takes on them.

This fun origami inspired card was my take on one designed by Diana Veenendaal.

All I can say is how did it get to be September already?  Time seems to be flying by with no end in sight as the holidays will be upon us.  I am not complaining as I love this time of year but there never seems to be enough time to get all the craft projects I want to complete finished….

I have been running a bit behind on completing my September Card Workshop cards, but I have now finished them.

Roxybonds Blog Hop ~ Buzz & Bumble / Claire

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop!  

 Roxybonds Scrappers

We will be featuring artwork from the Buzz & Bumble Pack and/or Claire.  I chose to work with the Buzz & Bumble paper pack.

If you have come here from Stephanie’s Blog, then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Emma’s Blog.

I really like this paper back as the colors are more in the neutral earth tons but you can definitely pop them with color.  I love neutral colors when scrapbooking as is allows me to really showcase my photos. I am particularly fond of the way Goldrush and Creme Brulee looks with these papers.

Buzz & Bumble Blog Hop

For this layout I used my Silhouette to cut the honeycomb border, title and honeycombs.  I used the Workshop on the Go stamp set and the Honeycomb stamp set. I used Cocoa, Goldrush, Champange, and Colonial white cardstock to complement the Buzz and Bumble paper pack. I also used on of the adorable wax seals from the buzz and bumble assortment over the rosette.

Here are a couple of cards I designed using this paper pack.

This is a variation of the card I designed for Mojo Monday two weeks ago.  This card is part of my May Card Workshop.Sweet as honey Card

Mother’s Day Card

Last year I did not pay attention to the fact Mother’s day was right around the corner so I was left scrambling to create my Mother’s day cards.  This year I am a head of the game!!  If you have noticed I have been exploring the different types of special fold cards there are out there.  I picked the cascading card to design for my Mother’s day card as it could resemble a bouquet of flowers.  This card could easily be converted to any occaion card just by changing the sentiment.  You will see in a future post that I changed the sentiment for my May workshop.

mothers day card

For this card I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then used on of my boarder punches to give it the unique detail.  I then cut Lagoon cardstock to fit on each of the panels.  Using the Perfect fit – Mom stamp set I stamped the sentiment in Gypsy.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and leaves that match up with the flowers and leaves from the Girls Rock stamp set. I then used Gypsy, Buttercup, Pear, Smoothie and Lagoon inks to stamp the flowers.  For one of the smaller flowers I used the Happy Thoughts and for the Mom stamp insert in the larger flower I used the Perfect Fit – Mom stamp set. I also used the April SOTM’s adorable bird and stamped it using a two tone effect.

Once I photographed this card I realized it really needed something else so I went back and added Bitty Opaques and Sparkles.  Notice the difference?  it really completed the card.

CTMH – Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop – Chantilly

Welcome to Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop!!

Roxybonds Scrappers

We are featuring some of the new product lines from the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog.  This month we are showcasing the Chantilly paper line.

If you have come from Jen’s blog then you are on the right path. Your next stop with be Tess’s Blog.  This paper pack is so bright and colorful!  It has been fun and easy to create with this paper pack.  For this blog hop I created a layout and some cards.

Finished page kit 2 - Version 2

For this layout I used the Chantilly paper pack, Twilight, Sweat Leaf, Buttercup, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  I also used the Pink Glitter Gems and the Chantilly WOTG stamp set.  The inks I used were Twilight, Buttercup and Cotton Candy.

Happy thoughts Card 4 - Version 2

For this card I used my Silhouette to actually cut the shape of the leafs and flower – no more fussy cutting here!!!  I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set with Cotton Candy and Sweet leaf inks.  I then went back over the flower with Stickles to give the glitter look. I also used and embossing folder to emboss the Cotton Candy cardstock. I am becoming addicted (just like everything else with paper crafts)  to Washi tape  which is what I used to in the middle of the card.

Chantilly Iris Fold card 1 - Version 2

Iris fold cards are so much fun and such a neat way to bring color to a design.  I used my Silhouette to cut the dragonfly then used Chantilly paper strips along with another pink scrap I had to make the wings. The sentiment was stamped in Cotton Candy using For Every Occasion stamp set.

Chantilly Happy Birthday 4 - Version 3

I have to admit Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and ever scrap-lift. I was always told that scrap-lifting is the best form of flattery.  Well I took my inspiration from a card that was made by Christine Adams.  I used Pear, Twighlight, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  To cut the Cotton Candy scalloped circles, I used a Spellbinders die.  I used my 1 1/4″ circle punch for the circles and then used the Chantilly WOTG and Perfect Fit- Birthday stamp sets.

I hope you enjoyed these creations and if you need to pick you any supplies you can find most of them on here on my CTMH website. Now hop on over to Tess blog and check out her wonderful creations!!

March Card Workshop

Every month I hold a workshop where you can come complete a scrapbook layout which is usually the layout I feature on the Roxybond Scrapper Team Blog Hop. But I also have a card workshop that same night.  I really had no idea I would enjoy making cards as much as I have.  I keep finding all these cool techniques.  So my challenge to myself is to try at least one new technique for the workshop.  This way I learn something new and so do the participants.  This months new technique is Iris Fold Card.  I have been seeing them all over Pinterest, so I took the plunge.

Iris flower card 4 - Version 2

Since Easter is just around the corner and CTMH has a very cute Easter Wishes stamp set, I could not resist.  I actually thought this stamp set would work as a slider style card.  Here is the end result:

For this next card I was also inspired by Pinterest.  I had seen these woven cards and realized it was actually a die by Simon Says Stamp.

And my last workshop card was also Pinterest inspired (HaightMark Scrapbooking) using the Later Sk8r paper and Perfect fit birthday stamp set.
