Florals & Foils

Howdy-do all! I was making a birthday card for my Sister-in-law and I wanted to incorporate 3 elements; first a bicycle, she loves biking, second a floral background so I could enter it in the Unity Stamps January challenge and finally I wanted to foil the bicycle. I love this image from Unity’s set Enjoy The Ride!

Enjoy The Ride

I used the flower cluster from Angie Girl’s Dream With Your Heart on the background mat. I colored them in using colored pencils and highlighted with gel pens and stamped “birthday wishes” from the Birthday Wishes Peeps set from Unity.

When I foiled the bicycle image I used Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder, then after heat setting it (which makes it sticky) I used a combo of Ranger Rose Gold foil which came in a multi pack of several gem tones and whatever areas didn’t initially adhere I used TheraWeb silver foil and just kept dabbing here and there to achieve the look I wanted. I was very happy with the results, I hope she likes it too!

Welcome back! Scrap Our Stash has another fun challenge for January, it’s time for the monthly sketch challenge. Please pop over for inspiration and have fun playing along too! Click on the link to get to SOS, http://scrapourstash.blogspot.com/?m=1

We are working off this sketch here:

I had fun creating the background with Distress inks and stencils. I used leftover scraps from mY Echo Park It’s A Girl scrapbook kit from Scrapbook and Cards Today. I pretty much followed the sketch verbatim. The added challenge (element) was to add journaling strips which believe it or not I have never done, well, not my journaling, I have added preprinted words and phrases, but not my actual journaling and I really like the look of it.
This is my take on it.

Snow Angels

Welcome fellow papercrafters! Today I am SO excited to share with you my very first post as a Design Team member of Scrap Our Stash. This is a super fun challenge blog, so please head on over to play along too, just follow this link. http://scrapourstash.blogspot.com

The first challenge this month is a remix on a previous design, here is my take on it.

I used Echo Park’s Celebrate Winter line, I absolutely love the color palate! It’s primarily red, white & blue without looking like July 4th. 😊 I used my Cricut Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge to cut a giant snowflake out of an 8″ circle, to use as my anchor for the photo mat. Part of the challenge is to use two different alphas in the title, I love that look, I think it adds real interest.

I hope you liked today’s project and I hope you play along with Scrap Our Stash challenge. Visit it often for inspiration! Please follow our blog by subscribing and follow us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Paper-Canvas-Creations-621386291288671/.

Sunshine & Smiles

Howdy do!  Today I took a trip down memory lane… last year (when traveling was easy and fun) my bestie since High School and I had gone to the Gulf Coast of Florida for some R&R, the smiles on our faces says it all!

I used Close To My Heart paper, Die cut some embellies and basically raided my stash.  I was able to enter several challenges with this layout, so I was super excited.  Please follow my various links back to the challenge blogs for tons of creative inspiration.

Bundles of Joy

Greetings fellow paper crafters!  Today I scrapped a single page layout featuring my beautiful twin baby granddaughters.  I used Bazzil cardstock in a dark pink as the base then I added paper and some elements from one of my Clique Kits.  The alphas were Rockabye Thickers from my stash and Magical Forest alphas from Crate Paper.  I Die cut twig wreaths and flowers to add a little something more.  After adhering the little flowers I used a white gel pen to doodle meandering stitches connecting all the flowers.

Pink & White Thank Yous

Hello, today I had to make quite a few girly Thank Yous for gifts I received on behalf of my new twin granddaughters!  I thought doing a bunch of nesting frame Die cuts in pearl white and various pink patterned papers would be fun.  I then inset the frames from the different papers inside one another.  I also Die cut foam and the pearl white cardstock to make my extra dimensional THANKS.

BABY OH BABY

Greetings!  Today I made a card for my daughter and son-in-law congratulating them on the news that I am going to be a first time grandma TO TWINS!  Yes, double blessings and double trouble. ❤️

Baby Oh Baby

I used the Cricut to cut out the baby clothes and one of my many heart dies to cut out the heart using my eBosser.  I also embossed white cardstock to add a little interest.
