Tuesday’s Talent ~ Ka Slagoski is here!

Hello everyone! My name is Ka and I am beyond thrilled and honored to be a guest designer for Spiegelmom Scraps! I want to thank Jody for inviting me to guest design here and for all the awesome products she given me to create with. Every Tuesday, I‚Äôll be sharing a card or two here for the month of September. Woo-hoo! Let me get started by sharing a little information about me, then we’ll move on to the cards.
profileI am a longtime papercrafter who have dabbled in many forms of paper crafts, but my true passion is creating cute and whimsical cards. When I’m not paper-crafting, you’ll find me watching my favorite comedy TV shows, playing games at Dave & Buster, playing tennis, and hanging out with my husband, family and friends. ūüôā

Now, let’s move on to today’s cards. This first card was so much fun to create. I fell in love with the Shimmerz Paint Paste when I was playing with it. I think I may just need one in every color! ūüėČ

Hello Sunshine 1

‚ÄúHello, Sunshine‚ÄĚ Card

I started this card off by placing My Favorite Things Sunray Stencil over the white cardstock and sponged Mustard Seed distress ink, going outward from dark to light. Then, I rotated the stencil and filled in the gap by spreading the Shimmerz Paint Dazzlerz Lemon Drop Yellow paste with a long plastic palette knife. I set that aside to dry. 

Hello Sunshine 2

Once that was dried, I randomly added some Spiegelmom Scraps Glossy Black Sequins and some Pretty Pink Posh metallic sequins. I stamped the sentiment using Avery Elle Elle’s Alphas and cut them into small strips. I added a strip of One Way Arrow washi tape to the left side. I finished this card by popping the sunray panel up on the card base with foam dimensional adhesives.

Youre Awesome 1

‚ÄúYou‚Äôre Awesome‚ÄĚ Card

 This next card, I decided to play with punches and patterns. When I first saw the Studio Calico Stars Wood Veneers in Spiegelmom Esty shop, I knew I wanted to make something with them. I decided to create a grid by scoring the cardstocks into thirds. Then I punched out some stars in 3 different patterned papers using a small star punch. I also punched out a tag with a scallop tag punch and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Quite the Pair set and white heat embossed the sentiment. Next, I adhered all the stars on the grid and sew some of the Maya Arts Burlap Strings from Spiegelmom Scraps Etsy Shop to the stars. Then, I added some Studio Calico Tiny Stars Wood Veneers on top of the stars for a fun look. The scalloped tag was popped up with dimensional adhesives and a green bow was tied on top. I finished the card off by popping the entire panel with foam dimensional adhesives onto a navy card base.

Youre Awesome 2 (1)

Silver Dazzlerz Texture Paste: Yes Please!!

Yes, silver!! You all know I love gold accents & papers but silver is another metallic must have in my scrappy stash! It can create so many different looks and effects, the possibilities are fabulous & endless! ¬†That why I fell in love with the new Dazzlerz Foiled Again texture paste. It’s magical.¬†

For my layout, I used an Amy Tangerine stencil and added the Foiled Again Dazzlerz in a few areas around my 12×12 paper. Then I added a few layers of May Arts Ribbon pink burlap string and ephemera from my stash. As you can see some of the hearts in the stencil didn’t get filled in all the way. I’m totally ok with that & love the look it creates. I also popped up my ephemera with some foam squares adhesives.@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girly¬†¬†@spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girlyHere are a few more angles where you can really see the shimmerz & dimension of the Foiled Again Dazzlerz. @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @shimmerzpaints @mayartsribbon, @websterspages, #spiegelmomscraps #jodyspiegelhoff #shimmerzpaints #dazzlerz #texturepaste #burlapstring #mixedmedia #scrapbook #pinkfreshstudio #puffystickers #paint #girly

I decided to add a couple Pink Fresh Studio enamel frames & puffy stickers. I love that those puffy stickers look like clouds!! ¬†Here’s my finished layout, featuring my love of Sari & Abby’s eyelashes.

Ok my friends, onto my layouts today! ¬†I am totally stoked to be creating with Amy Tangerine again! ¬†We just adore her and her Stitched collection blends perfectly¬†this month’s challenge. ¬†I hope you grabbed your favorite beverage and have a snack ready for this inspiring blog hop. Think about what you’d create with our challenge this month!

In the true spirit of Tailor Made, we want to see something sewn, stitched, embroidered, quilted, knitted, or crocheted on your project this month! ¬†For extra credit, share some goals, hopes and dreams for the new year, or even your “word” of the year if you choose one.

For this first layout, I cut the Dots cut file after enlarging it slightly on my Portrait. ¬†I love this photo of our daughter Hannah selling Girl Scout Cookies door to door last year. ¬†I also love to scrapbook along with my girls. ¬†Hannah helped me stitch this flower onto the die cut ūüėÄ ¬†She loved it and it meant a lot to both of us to spend some one and one time together. ¬†As you can see, I added many of the Tailor Made embellishments including the lovely ¬†Chic Tags acetate words, stickers, enamel dots, Echo Park Creative Agenda chipboard stickers and cut files!

I love combining different stickers and chipboard for interesting little sub-titles in my layouts!

Next up is a much different layout.  This much softer layout has lots of white, gray, black and a few pops of color!  I also used some of my Ranger Texture Paste, mixed with some ink to add a soft looking subtitle.  This was done by placing a stencil (from Dear Lizzy) onto my layout and gently spreading the tinted texture paste over the stencil.  Pretty simple actually!  I added these fabulous chipboard triangles (heat embossed with white Ranger Embossing) from our January challenge sponsor Creative Embellishments.  I love the contrast added by the Amy Tangerine Thickers combined with the softness of the sweet little heart polaroids from the Amy Tangerine paper.  My scrappy toppings included the Amy Tangerine enamel dots, Maya Road wood veneer stitched heart (also heat embossed) and some sequin hearts from my stash.
