Join us over at Sunday Scrappin’!
Well, given that official moving day is WEDNESDAY, the only papercrafting I did was “necessary.” My godson/nephew and MIL both have their birthdays on the same day. So, with some fun chipboard and some embossing powder, I whipped up these two. The first card also completes the Sunday Scrappin’ challenge: “FUZZY” (velvet ric-rac!) Next week’s challenge is: use up some of your ribbon stash. Make a border, make a bow… it’s up to you, but let’s see some ribbon on this week’s projects!
This first one is for the nephew. He’ll be TWO! I heat-embossed each piece of the ladybug by hand with striking pigment inks and clear e.p. I had red embossing powder, but I liked how the scarlet pigment turned out against the black, so I went with clear e.p.)
MATERIALS: ColorBox pigment inks (scarlet & black); “Butterflies and Bugs” chipboard kit (Maya Road); “Sentiments” sticker letters by Pamela Woods (Creative Imaginations); velvet ric-rac (stash); Designer Mat pad by Amy Butler (K & Co.); Clear embossing powder (Ranger)
This card is for the MIL. I was pretty stressed about this one. Like my nephew, French is her native language (although she speaks English too), so hence the “Bonne fete” instead of Happy Birthday! She is a trained artist, so I had to set my standards pretty high, LOL. I rarely do anything this modern, so I’m very happy with the results! She’s a wonderful person so I’m sure she’ll say she likes it too!
MATERIALS/TECHNIQUES: The “B” is from “Hello Sunshine Alphabutton Fashions” (Cosmo Cricket); the chipboard letters are Maya Road–heat embossed with scarlet and black pigment ink (ColorBox) and clear embossing powder (Ranger). The accent circonflexe is an upside down “v” sticker from “5th Avenue Shimmer Stickers” (Making Memories). The patterned papers are both Marah Johnson for Creative Imaginations.
Have a great week everyone!
