Creative Cards With Karla – Masculine Congrats!

Hello friends! Karla here today with one last retro card in keeping with our theme this month – Take It Back June! I wanted to do a masculine card today, and I love playing around with Distress Oxide Inks and Distress Inks so I decided to start with an inky tag.  I used sequins from the Evergreen Bough and Free Spirit sequin mixes to embellish the card. I love choosing sequin colours based on my backgrounds – even mixing and matching different mixes!

Here’s a look at the fun background I created on this tag using my Distress Inks and Oxides by smooshing them on a craft mat, spritzing with water and then dabbing the tag in the ink several times. I used my sponging tool to add a little colour over top of everything, holding a film stencil in place while inking with brown Distress Ink. I love the effect dripping water on top adds at the end!

I used some of my favourite Burlap String from the SMS shop! I added it to the top of the tag and then used it to tie on a wooden button. For a background paper I chose this fun 3D glasses print from the 6×6 For The Boys paper pad from Your Next Stamp. I love the way the film strip stencil, the glasses and the TV all tie together!

I added Emerald Creek Weathered Wood embossing powder to the edges of my focal image as well as inside the card on the beautiful stamped sentiment from Your Next Stamp.

I added a couple awesome Cork Confetti Chevron Arrows to the bottom left of the card to finish it off!

Creative Scrappers January Challenge Sponsor

Happy Sunday everyone! I’m so excited that 2015 is here and I’m kicking it off by sponsoring a $25.00 prize from my Etsy Shop over at the Creative Scrappers Challenge Blog.  Here’s one of the fabulous sketches you can play along with this month.  @creativescrappers @jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @amytangerine @chictags, #spiegelmomscraps #etsyshop #sequin #creativescrapper #challengeAll you need to do for a chance to win is create a layout based on one or both of these awesome CS sketches,  Sketch 285 and/or 286, and and link it up! That’s a whole lotta scrapbooking goodies my friends!  And here is the layout I created based on the sketch.

@cliquekits @amytangerine @chictags @creativeembellishments @americancrafts, #cliquekits #jodyspiegelhoff #spiegelmomscraps #etsy #sequins #triangle

The super cute triangles on my layout are from Creative Embellishments and such a fun element on my page.  Just like a lot of chipboard, it comes a plain brown.  I really wanted to use it, but it needed it to be softer and not a hard brown color.  So, I turned to my embossing powders and heat gun to tackle this chore.  I chose the triangles I wanted on my layout and pressed them into my Versamark Ink pad to get them nice and sticky.  Then I poured my Ranger white embossing powder over them, then heat set them.  I have a video coming soon on how I did this also.  Here are some close ups!
