Hi friends! Karla back today with a scraplift for you using the amazing Missy Whidden, our Guest Designer this month, as inspiration, along with three beautiful new sequin mixes – Cunning One, Birthdays & Balloons and Cotton Candy Land. I really loved the pinks, yellows and greens in her layout, and of course Missy rocks the watercolours, so I wanted to use those elements in my layout as well as layering paper behind my photo and using different stickers and fonts for a title. Here you can see Missy’s wonderful layout!

Layout By Missy Whidden

Here’s a look at my layout using some photos from a December when my daughter was 3 and we went to the local zoo for a Zoolights display. I pulled out a Simple Stories collection that has nontradition colours, and of course was excited to find this cute penguin journaling card and sticker to go with the penguin lights in my photo! I started off with a white sheet of cardstock and used my Tattered Angels mists in pink, yellow, green and iridescent gold to create a watercolour effect on the background by using a piece of plastic packaging to spritz the mist on before smooshing it onto the paper. Then, I created some splattered effects by removing the cover and tapping the nozzle onto the desired areas.

I used some of the clear sequins in the Cunning One sequin mix to accent the light strand sticker that I placed on the journaling card. They add just a bit of shine to the lights!

I had a lot of fun diecutting some watercoloured patterned paper with the Lawn Fawn String Of Lights die and sponging the edges with Distress Inks. I really loved the look of the gold Missy added onto her layout and I pulled that in with the gold string diecuts, the loooped gold thread and the Thickers letters.

I feel like titles are not my strong point, so I was really happy to mix and match my letter and word stickers along with some stamps and chipboard to create a fun title. The stamps from the Home For The Holidays collection from Wild Whisper worked beautifully!

Creative Cards with Karla – Stitched Laundry Birthday Card!

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @

Howdy friends! It’s Karla back today to share a fun stitched birthday card! Now, usually you wouldn’t associate laundry with FUN but when you combine the Lawn Fawn Loads of Fun stamps along with lots of SpiegelMom Scraps sequins, burlap string and felties, you can’t help but have fun!! Our theme this week is to add stitching to a project, so I got out my sewing machine and added a zigzag stitch over the Black May Arts Burlap String to add a little clothes line to hang my laundry on. I have lots of fun stitches that I’ve never even used on my machine, so I thought I’d try a cross stitch one along the bottom of the card. I love how that turned out, and I’ll definitely be using it more! I even grabbed some Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies and cut a background from some pink Shimelle Starshine paper.

Today I pulled out Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes to use on my card. After I coloured my images with Jane Davenport coloured pencils and added some paper piecing with some Shimelle Starshine papers I had lots of fun adding these sequins!

I used one of the heart felties to do some handstitching on, doing a ‘blanket stitch’ around the edge, sewing on a button and adding sequins by stitching a ‘french knot’ into the center of each pretty little flower. A quick online search will show you lots of handstiches you can try!@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @lawnfawn @americancrafts @shimellelaine @kaisercraft #smssequins #sequins #sequinlove #handstitching #machinestitching #fauxstitching #diecutting #stamping #paperpiecing #cardmaking #greetingcard #happybirthday #felt #coloredpencils #laundry #loadsoffun

Inside, I used another of the Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies, inked and stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink.

Here’s a look at the supplies I used from the SMS Shop:

Fairy Garden, Be True 2 You and Jaded Hearts sequin mixes

Black May Arts Burlap String

Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Squares Dies

The Heart Felties are now sold out! There are a few Felties left in the shop and they are being discontinued to make room for fun, new things. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing some felt and diecutting or handcutting your own to try some stitching techniques on!

 

I popped my cute laundry up with foam dots to add some dimension, and I can’t wait to give this to a special friend on their birthday! I’m sure I’ll even think about how much fun I had making this card while I’m doing real laundry later today 😉

Gather-LGS + SMS Team Up Wk 2!

I’m loving all the projects that have come out of our sketch swap with Let’s Get Sketchy!  They most certainly challenge me. When I’m not thinking it up in my own brain it feels more difficult.

I started with a hot pink Basic Grey paper. I love how it brings out the pink in that bouquet of flowers. I dripped some Vibez in Blushing Bride to add some interest to the paper. I opted to create my focal point with four 3 x 3 pieces, one picture and 3 squares of patterned paper. I made sure those squares coordinated without being too busy – I hoped to avoid that as best I could with this page. #SpiegelmomScraps #sequins #LGSketchy #shimmerzpaints #cratepaper #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #papercrafting #lawnfawn #sketchchallenge @wordsandpaperscraps @LGsketchy @shimmerzpaintsI cut square and rectangular scraps from various pieces of paper, mostly from the “Gather” collection by Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper & paired it with some ephemera from Pink Paislee  “C’est La Vie.” The vellum came from my stash. I cut out everything before I adhered anything down. It was so important to play around with placement in order to get the balance correct#SpiegelmomScraps #sequins #LGSketchy #shimmerzpaints #cratepaper #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #papercrafting #lawnfawn #sketchchallenge @wordsandpaperscraps @LGsketchy @shimmerzpaintsI wanted to incorporate some peachy-orange into my page and so I used some Dazzlers in Coral Me Crazy on a paper scrap. Once I knew where I wanted all my pieces, I adhered them down. I added some stitching to a few pieces to create dimension. I put pop dots on the backs of my 4 center pieces to ensure they stuck out well. I then layered that chipboard word, also from the Gather collection, on top. #SpiegelmomScraps #sequins #LGSketchy #shimmerzpaints #cratepaper #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #papercrafting #lawnfawn #sketchchallenge @wordsandpaperscraps @LGsketchy @shimmerzpaintsTo finish off my page, I added sequins from the shop, a few plus sign chipboard pieces, and puffy gold pieces by Lawn Fawn. Those little phrases are some of my favorite embellishments ever. Occasionally, Crate Paper comes out with new ones and I absolutely adore them!#SpiegelmomScraps #sequins #LGSketchy #shimmerzpaints #cratepaper #scrapbooking #memorykeeping #papercrafting #lawnfawn #sketchchallenge @wordsandpaperscraps @LGsketchy @shimmerzpaints

I love how this page turned out! For some reason, it seems almost like it’s a little “burnt” around the edges. I hope you’ll play along with some sketch challenges, we’ve got 2 more this month!

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Cards with Ka

Hello SpiegelMom Fans! It’s Ka here to share two more cards with you! Today I am featuring gold products from SpiegelMom Scraps Etsy Shop. One of the most used metallic items in my stash is gold and second to it is silver. I love the different effects and looks of these metallic! They’re just so much fun!

Here is one of the gold products that I used on my card:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps @dearlizzy @americancrafts @mayartsribboninc

I decided to use the gold doily as a backdrop to help bring out the jar of bouquet. I know I didn’t do anything fancy to it, but I just love how it added the perfect shine to the card. The flowers from Avery Elle Petals and Stems set are stamped in pigment inks and carefully fussy cut. They were popped up on top of a jar which was also fussy cut from a patterned paper. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows stamp set. I finished the card by wrapping the jar twice with a pink burlap string and tying that into a little bow.

Next gold products are these sparkly sequins and confetti:@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

When it comes to these fun sparkling sequins, I thought a shaker card is called for. Since I wanted to create the look of a collection of shoes displayed in a store window at the mall, I decided to have the shoes stamped in two rows using Encore Gold pigment ink. I created the shaker using some Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares Dies, an acetate sheet and the stamped panel of shoes from The Tons Stamps.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff

I filled in my shaker with SpiegelMom Scraps Tiny Gold Stars, Gold Rush and Gold Garland Confetti and sealed my shaker with the sentiment panel. The entire shaker was adhered to a sparkly DCWV Black Glitter Paper. I know this is such a simple shaker, but sometime simple is the best to go!

That is all for me today! Thanks for popping in and checking out these two cards! I hope you enjoyed them! And as always, if you like to see the full supplies list, click HERE.  I’ll be back here again next Tuesday to share even more cards using more SpiegelMom Scraps products!
