My ribbon rack was featured on TipJunkie.com!!! I would have had no clue except the new typepad console shows sites that are linked to your page. WOW! I must tell my Dad (who built it) he would love that!
This is the second card that I made using the Doodlebug PP scraps. I used the same colors and stamp set as the card that I posted yesterday. I changed the orientation, and used the Doodlebug striped paper instead of the floral. I stamped the Hibiscus Burst CS with Background Basics - Text Styles using the same color ink. And I STILL have some scraps left of this PP!
When I was done making the card and bow for my Moms gifts I still had quite a bit of the Doodlebug PP left on my workspace. I decided to use it! I made 2 more cards using the same PP. I started with the Stampers Select White CS from PTI and used the EKSuccess mini border punch on the edge (I had scored the CS wrong, so this "fixed" it). Then I added a piece of PTIs Lemon Tart Bitty Boxes PP. I layered the Doodlebug PP on that and added the ribbon and bow. Then I had to decide on my focal image. I pulled out PTIs Garden of Life stamp set and stamped the flowers and sentiment in Hibiscus Burst. I added a little lemon tart in the center of the flowers and some Diamond Stickles on top of them. I layered the focal image on the Hibuscus Burst CS, and popped it up with pop dots.. but thought it needed something else. I punched a butterfly (using a Martha Stewart punch) out of some Lemon Tart CS, added some American Crafts bling and more stickles!
I needed a masculine birthday card and decided to chack out the recent challenges at SplitCoastStampers. This card is for Sketch Challenge 235. It is hard to tell (in this crappy picture) but the sentiment block is popped up on pop dots.
CS: PTI Stampers Select White and Ripe Avocado PP: Imagination Project
Stamp: PTI Ink: PTI Ripe Avocado and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Misc buttons from stash.
I decided to keep the "wrapping" simple for my Mom's birthday gift since the box is a nice printed cardboard, and just made a pretty bow! I saw this tutorial on SplitCoastStampers months ago for the paper bow, but had not yet made one. The bow coordinates with her card, of course!
The paper is Doodlebug designs, butterfly is out of scrap vellum using the SU butterfly die (for the Big Shot), American Crafts bling and Papertrey Ink ribbon are the finishing touches!
I finished a digital page today! There is not any journaling, but it was not really necessary for this page. I have an idea on where to put it, and I might go back and edit it (the wonders of digital!) but for now I am happy with it! The elements are from Heatheranndesigns, her new Land I Love kit. I also used her scallops kit for the red scalloped PP. I am still learning the ins and outs of Photoshop Elements (even though I have had it for a year), and I am not giving up on paper scrapping. I might do more hybrid stuff though!
This is the card that I made for my Mom's birthday. I just got the butterfly die from SU and was playing around. I love how this turned out! The wings are popped up with pop dots and the vellum layer is just adhered under the bling, giving it lots of dimension. The Doodlebug PP is flocked, and I also popped up the sentiment. A butterfly trail made from Stickles finished off this card.
Supplies: CS, Ink, Stamp: Papertrey Ink PP: Doodlebug Die: Stampin Up Other: EK SUccess Border Punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder, Stickles, American Crafts bling
Here is the card that I made to go with the Recipe Box (below).
I embossed the swirls on the PTI CS using my Cuttlebug embossing folder and trimmed to fit on the front of the card. I used the same ribbon as I used on the recipe box, but added a clear blue button (PTI) under the bow. I stamped the sentiment using PTIs Smokey Shadow ink on a scrap of paper and then used the EKSuccess mini scalloped punch on the bottom. After matting it on the blue Bazzill CS I decided that it needed something else so I covered all of the holes in the scallop with the same pearls that I used on the Recipe Box. The sentiment is popped up using foam squares giving it a little more dimension.
I love the Smokey Shadow ink from PTI. Black would have been too harsh on the front of this card, and I did not have the right blue ink to match the blue CS (Since it is not PTI). The grey ink worked perfectly though!
A co-worker recently got married, and had a small destination wedding. Last week we had a reception of sorts for them. I was asked by the organizing co-workers if I would make a recipe box for the Bride and Groom, using the wedding invite stationary. So here is my first hybrid project. The patterned paper was designed by a co-worker. She also designed the recipe cards, but I did not get a picture of them.
Other supplies used: CS: Bazzill and Papertry Ink Ink, Stamps and Ribbon: Papertrey Ink Pearls (Hobby Lobby), Heart Pin (MM), Nestabilities, Embossing Powder (SU?), Letter Stickers (MM?), Misc trim
