Hi! It’s Karla back today for a Creative Card feature. This month our theme is winter and tools – fun!! Of course, with Christmas around the corner, I wanted to get a few more Christmas cards made, so I pulled out my Cuttlebug, dies and stamps and three of the new sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store – Birthdays and Balloons, Happy Happy Winter and Puppy Dog Tails! I really love how the bright colours that I chose from these mixes look so fun and festive.
These crazy birds just make me laugh everytime I see them, and I’m sure that whoever I give this card to will share a smile. I used a Pretty Pink Posh die and my Cuttlebug to diecut this neat scalloped square before watercolouring my little guy and adding a cute little Santa hat.
Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird Sentiment stamp set and used some bright, fun sequins for a pop of colour.
I started off taking a piece of Bristol cardstock and smooshing my Versamark Ink through the stencil that came with the awesome Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set. I used some clear iridescent embossing powder to add a clear resist on the background and then sponged on my Distress Oxide Inks from dark to light. I dripped a few water droplets on the water reactive ink to add some cool splotches! I layered on a chipboard label covered with Emerald Creek Northern Lights embossing powder and tied it to the stencilled background before layering over some pretty Lawn Fawn Knit Picky patterned paper.
The deer were stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder. I love the cool gold and black melted effect this powder gives!
Here’s a look at the inside – I love the font on the stamps and how just adding a few sequins inside really makes it special.
Hello friends, and happy Thursday! Karla here today, and this week we are having a wonderful time scraplifting the most amazing Jen Schow! I really liked this layout below that she created, and thought it would be a nice way to use some of the 3×4 photos that I usually print out with the Project Life App, as well as using up some of the pretty journaling cards I have in my stash!
I decided to start off with some older CTMH papers from my stash and the coordinating stickers. The colours looked great with my photos and since they had an outdoorsy theme it went well. I also had some Project Life cards that I thought would go well with the papers and photos and then grabbed the Sweet Pea, Deck The Halls, Orange Blossom and Ferris Wheel sequin mixes.
I added some Stickles and Glossy Accents to highlight different areas of the stickers and Tim Holtz botanical ephemera. The orange blossom sequin mix had the perfect tiny flowers to add detail to the mushroom sticker, and I love how the larger flower from the mix has a bit of iridescence to it and coordinated perfectly!
Just by adding some sequins to the journaling card and paper flower I was able to coordinate both elements, and add that little bit of something extra special to my layout!
I really liked how the reds in the Deck The Halls went with the coral colour in the stickers and flair badge, and I used the Abandoned Coral Distress Ink to stamp some little triangular images on the background. I even added a little of the Natural Burlap String on the tiny sticker tag.
Hello friends! It’s Karla here today with another awesome Scraplift! I am really loving the scraplifting theme this month. I’m finding new techniques and ideas that I wouldn’t normally have tried without scraplifting someone. This week the Design Team is scraplifting the awesome Katty Miranda! She’s so amazing!!
Here’s a look at her layout that I used to base my scrapbook page on-
And, here’s what I created! I loved the diecut circle background, so I used the Kaisercraft Wildflower paper and Kaisercraft Nesting Stitched Circle Dies. I used some to cut the outside as well as the inside and used both the back and front side of the circles. This paper is so gorgeous, it’s sometimes hard to decide which side to use! I used one of the coordinating circle sticker elements ‘You Are Perfect” as a title, popped up with foam dots.
I used my sewing machine and stitched along both the top and bottom of my layout, alternating a couple different zigzag stitches with a straight stitch. I love the texture stitching adds!
The Tim Holtz Botanical ephemera was just perfect to add to this layout about my daughter at the Calgary Zoo where a butterfly landed on her hand. I used tacky glue and some foam dots to arrange the flowers and butterflies in a diagonal arrangment. I love the watercolour butterfly sticker that came in the Wildflower paper pack, and added it along the bottom of the layout with a couple strips of paper and a branding strip.
The gorgeous flower sequins in the Jaded Hearts and Wild & Free Sequin Mixes made a lovely little trail for the pretty butterfly. I used some Glossy Accents to adhere them to the page, and I love the dimension they add!
Here’s a closeup of the beautiful sequin mixes I’ve used today – Jaded Hearts and Wild & Free! The Wild & Free was actually created to coordinate with the Kaisercraft Wildflower papers <3
Hello again my scrappy friends! Here with a layout featuring my grandson again and his many faces and acts that constantly keeps me in stitches…lol! He is a character and in this photo, it shows some of what he loves to do. I remember when my children were small and some of things they did were not funny to me at that time. Now that I have grandchildren, everything they do is hilarious! I don’t understand it, but I think its funny. That is why some people are more happy being grandparents than parents…lol.
Ahhhh these are so nice and I finally got them even! Lol, I am know for not getting things even on my scrap pages..
For a last minute touch, I added these word strips in place of journaling not the layout from Tim Hotlz. This saves me time and also the strips say everything I wanted to say in the journaling.
