One Layer – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is One Layer!

Take a look at my card:

Super delicious!!

To create this card, I used Concord & 9th Say Hello Dies to cut out a bunch of hello die cuts out of plain white cardstock and a mixed media masterboard, that I created a couple of weeks ago.

Once the die cuts were made, I mixed matched the words and added them to the plain white cardstock.

Once the die cuts were in place, I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment from the Say Hello Stamp Set using Versafine Black Ink.

Nice and easy, right!

I couldn’t just stop there since I had a couple other die cuts left so I made this cute envelope using the rest of the dies and the Love Notes Die set.

Take a look:

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Playing with Stencils!!

playing-with-stencils

Take a look at my card:

stencil-hello-a2z

I had so much fun this weekend playing with my Gel Press Plate that I had to create a card using it.  I added paint to the gel press using a brayer.  Then I placed the plate on top of the card front.  After that, I placed the stencil on top of the gel plate.  Then I added the ink on top of the stencil using a brayer.  I removed the stencil and placed the gel plate on top of the card front creating a textured look on the card front. Then I die cut the sentiment hello out of white cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Pretty cool!

What do you think? I would love to hear what you think below.

I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of April.  Good Luck!

Clean and Simple Ways To Use Rinea Foil Paper!

Hello everyone!! I’m super excited to be here!  I’m guest designing for Rinea today. I’m going to show you three clean and simple ways to use Rinea foil paper!

Lets get started!

Take a look at card number one:

Using Rinea Foil Paper as the Focal Point!

hello-foil

Using Rinea foil paper as the focal point creates a clean and simple card!

To create this card:

  1. Cut the card base to 6.25 by 7.50 scored at 3.75.
  2. Using die cutting machine, run the Rinea foil paper with The Ton Stamps Brushed Hello Coordinating Die, through the machine. Once with the Rinea silver foil paper and once with the Rinea blue foil paper.
  3. Adhere the silver sentiment first using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue. Then adhere the Rinea blue foil sentiment die cut on top of the silver, in an offset manner.  Offsetting the sentiment, creates dimension.
  4. Using a corner rounder, round all of the corners.

Nice and easy!  What do you think?  Pretty simple right!!

Take a look at card number two:

Using Rinea Foil Paper to Balance Out the Card Design!

many-thanks

Using Rinea foil paper with paints keeps the card design balanced!

To create this card:

  1. Cut you card base to 4.25 by 11 scored at 5.50.
  2. Then prepare your card stock for paint.  Add tape at the score line to prevent paint from touching the backside of the card. adding-paint
  3. Use an old gift card and pull the paint down the card stock.  After each swipe, wipe the gift card off. Then repeat the process until all of the paint dots are smeared.
  4. Using a die cutting machine, die cut My Favorite Things Many Thanks Die using the Rinea silver foil. 
  5. Adhere the Rinea foiled die cuts to the card front using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

Pretty easy! An easy introduction to mixed media! Another fun way to use Rinea foil paper! What do you think?

Take a look at project number three:

Using Rinea Foil Paper for the entire Project!

foiled-easter-baskets

Using Rinea foil paper as the project, takes foil paper to the next level!

To create these baskets:

  1. Using a die cutting machine, cut the Rinea blue and silver foil using Mama Elephant Cute Basket die cut and cut out all of the pieces with the Rinea foil paper.
  2. Assemble the basket according to the instruction that comes with the die.
  3. Change up the basket colors by mix and matching the different color Rinea oils.close-up-of-basket
  4. Once the baskets are together, add the cripple paper and eggs!

Lets look at those baskets again:

foiled-basket-2

I love how the Rinea foil looks.  So pretty and different then regular cardstock.  Rinea foil paper folds and rips just like paper but it is much prettier.  Its a bit lighter then cardstock but heavy enough to create these baskets and hold these eggs without fear of ripping.

Easy and requires a bit more assembling but it’s worth it.

So what do think?  Will you give Rinea foil paper a try?  I think you should.  The possibilities are endless. Please let me know what you think.  I would love to hear from you.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 214 – Beach

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 214 - Beach

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I have I told you how much I do not like the fall or winter!  I hate being cold and to see the summer end is killing me.  I love how we are using this cue card now!  The weather is changing and its no longer 90 degrees outside.  So going to the beach is about to be in our distant memory.

When I sat down to create my card, I immediately thought of So Suzy Stamps new release. The Beach Grass stamp to be exact!! This stamp set is just perfect for this week’s challenge.

I love how the grass gives the feeling of motion, the nice ocean breeze.  Oh when I close my eyes, I can feel it!  Can you?

Creating this card was easy as 1-2-3!

  • I used a A2 (4.25×5.50) size card base to start with.
  • Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the Beach Grass stamp set across the front of the card in black.
  • After that I used Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to stamp the sentiment.
  • Last but not least, I rounded the top right corner for added interest.

Nice and easy, I must say.  I love how the black and white keeps the card elegant.  Concord & 9th sentiment font is so fitting for this card as well.

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

Stencil Tag – a2z Scrapbooking September 2016 Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Make It A Tag!! 

Take a look at the card I created:

Hello Tag (a2z)

I used Hero Arts Asian Flower Pattern Stencil and Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door) to create the background on the white tag that I cut out by hand.

Then I used Hero Arts Hello Stamp and Cuts set to cut out the word hello and adhered it to the front of the tag with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue. After that I stamped the rest of the sentiment underneath the die cut.

I added a white ribbon to the top of the tag to finish it off.

Super, super easy to create.

What do you think?

I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of September.  Good Luck!
