CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Fabulous Foil

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 10 of us highlighting our FABULOUS FOIL. This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

If you are coming from HALEY DYER BLOG, you are on the right track!

I love our heavy weight foil cardstock.  It is perfect for embossing and you can even create scored creations using your Cricut.  Here is what I created:

So I took an image from Artbooking Circle Doily. I duplicated the image then hid the contour lines so only was the outer shape.  I then hid some of the contour lines on the other and changed it to a score line image.  I then centered the two and attached them to create this cut/score file . I then used the largest circle die to cut my white circle.  I used the lagoon ink, cardstock, fundamental paper and ribbon (which are part of the Adventure collection).

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MELISSA ROBINSON’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my creation and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!

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.

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.

Later Sk8r Layout

As I mentioned on the Roxybond Scrappers blog hop, I really love the Later Sk8r paper pack and all the accessories.  It may be due to the fact I have a little boy and love to scrapbook him.  I designed the following layout which was inspired by the layout shown in the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog on page 47.  I love all the gears and the way the paper was cut on the layout.  I really had a fun time creating this layout and was very happy with the way it turned out.

I used my Silhouette to cut the paper, title and all the gears.  I was even able to design the gears so they would fit with the In Gear stamp set. For this project I used the following CTMH product:

  • Later Sk8r Paper Pack (X7167B)
  • Slate Card Stock

If you came here from Stephanie’s Blog then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Tess’s Blog.

Since I love to scrapbook I usually will do a two page layout for this blog hop.   I have to admit that this may be my favorite paper pack of this collection.  It may be because I have a 17 month old boy and I know that this paper is perfect for him. Not to mention all the wonderful stamp sets that coordinate with it.

Waterfall Cards

I have really enjoyed making cards. In fact I did not realize how many cool techniques with card making there are. I really like the interactive ones particularly the waterfall card. Here are a couple of versions.

This Butterfly card was made with the footloose paper, lagoon, colonial white, sweet leaf and olive card stock. I used a stamp set from Technique Tuesday for the saying and butterflies. I then used watercolor pencils to color the butterflies.

This was a card I designed for the malamute rescue I volunteer for. It was fun to use some of my dog themed stamps. I used scraps of my papers that I had around. Cards can be a great way to use left over scraps.

This card was also created using some of the papers I had around. I used a stamp set by Technique Tuesday for the wine theme. I used the CTMH stamp set Life is Tweet for the “It’s your birthday”. The “cheers” was stamped using the Trinity alphabet by CTMH.

Sympathy Cards

It seems like lately I have unfortunately been needing to send a lot of sympathy cards.   This is always a hard time when a friend looses a love one whether it is for a human or a companion animal.  Here are a couple of cards I designed.

In this card I used CTMH A Blossom stamp set, sweet leaf card stock, lagoon card stock, dotty for you paper and sweet leaf and lagoon ink.

For these two cards I used some scraps along with CTMH colonial card stock, blush ink, indian corn blue ink and 4 my friends stamp set.
