My Hero

June 4, 2021

Good morning! Laura here today to share my next layout I created for ECD!
I really like to mix my papers from different collections as long as the color families are the same so for this layout I mixed some papers from the Mystical Winter paper pack, the Rusty Weathered and the Summer Art!

 

To create this layout:
Step 1 – Trim one paper to 11×7 and distress the edges, distress the edges of a 12×12 sheet and cut a ‘V’ into the top right of both papers about 2 1/2 ” from the edge. Cut one more piece of paper large enough to be adhered behind the cut ‘V’
Step 2 – adhere all the papers together and then cover with clear gesso and allow to dry

Step 3 – using watered down paints paint circles randomly in various sizes and also splatter some paint

Step 4 – Die cut 7 flowers and assemble. I die cut Florals 6, 8, 1, 2, 3, and 4 using white cardstock then painted them with the watercolor palette.

Step 5 – add your title

Step 6 – add some resin pieces, seed beads, art stones and cord to finish your layout!

Than you for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to create something today!

Good Job – Graduation Layout

May 4, 2021

Good morning! 
I am not a chronological scrapbooker. I scrapbook whatever I am inspired to, whenever I am inspired to, so I may scrapbook a photo from when our boys were little or from a couple of years ago when one of them graduated from high school. I find that I am much happier with my creations when I am inspired to create something. The beautiful colors from the Rusty Weather paper inspired me for this layout.

To create this layout:
Step 1 – Trim our papers to the following sizes: 1 at 12″x12″, 1 at 12″x11″, 1 at 12″x7″ and 1 at 12″x6″ and a photo mat. Distress all edges.

Step 2 – Die cut, ink and assemble 10 flowers and 4 leaves. I used florals 6, 8, 9, 1, 2, and 4.

Step 3 – Create your title and assemble as shown!

Celebrate Card

January 29, 2021

It is Karan here to share a project with you and today I am sharing a card i designed using the new Volume II Floral die collection

The card measures 6.5 in. x 7 in. its final measurement, cut papers to fit that size

These dies are amazing to work with, cut like butter and using the Soft Petal cardstock to cut color and mold these flowers make it super easy to create any flower from the collection

To start off with we will need to cut three sets of each die from the soft petal cardstock and then being to color.  For the flowers, color the outside side of the flowers using Red Geranium Archival Ink adding Leaf Green in the middle. 

I cut some smaller flowers from Florals 7 and left them white adding a small pale yellow stamen to the center.

for the Leaves, i used Leaf Green Archival Ink and colored them leaving a bit of white for highlight

The square in the center of the card, i placed a square of adhesive ( 5×5 ) and covered it with cool Diamond Glitter making sure i burnished after shaking off the excess glitter. After matting this on white cardstock i colored some seam binding and wrapped it around the card. 

I inserted some stamens in the smaller flowers coloring them with Leaf green

I created two roses from and two smaller flowers to add more dimension to my card.
I cut out a stitched fishtail on white cardstock using the second to smallest die and then stamped a sentiment using black archival ink.. 
and here is my final project
