CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Inspiration

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for February.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Text Me!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use text or script background stamps, or text paper in your projects. Any language, any style. Old book pages, bits torn from magazines, scrapbooking papers.. whatever you can find! … The ‘text’ part does NOT include sentiments, phrase or single word stamps…. think backgrounds!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Thanks on text (TIMI)

I love how this card turned out!! I used Clarity Stencils-Chinese Lantern and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create the pattern on the texted pattern paper.  These two products are my favorite supplies this year thus far.

This is how I created this card:

I placed the stencil over the pattern paper and used two different brushes to apply the Distress Ink Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn.

stencil and brushes

Here is where the magic happened, I moved the stencil over slightly to the right and applied BoBunny Sugar Glitter Paste, Yummy!!

I let the glitter paste dry and cut the unknown text pattern paper down to 4 by 5.25.

I adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock with Tombow Extreme Adhesive because I needed the pattern paper to stick securely to the card base because of its weight.

Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks three times and adhered them together and onto the pattern paper using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I placed a heavy book on top of the finish card to assure the die cut sticks to the pattern paper.

Take a closer look:

There you go!  That’s how I created this card.

Hello Hippo!!

Hello everyone!!  I popping in today with a cute card I created this weekend! I had some time to sit and color with my daughter.

FullSizeRender(5)

This image from Gerda Steiner Designs!!  It’s the Hippo with Butterfly digital image.  Her hippos are super cute.  I have them all!!  I just need more time to color.

So which color shirt do you like?  I went with the orange one.  It just looks so cute on that hippo.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Hippo

Oh, look how cute that hippo looks!!  He tickles me!!

Wait before I continue, did you see my new watermark for my pictures!!!  I’m excited about it.  My good friend Kristina Beagle from Live Love Laugh Scrap created it for me.  Oh man, can I say she made my day yesterday!! Thanks you so much Kristina!!  Go and check her out, she is a fabulous card maker!

Now if you’ve been following me lately, you know that I have a love for shaker cards because of my new Fuse tool.  I can make shaker cards all day long.

This card was pretty easy to make as well.

1. I used Mama Elephant Femme Frames (which I can’t find as a stand along die anymore, I see them under the Basic Set) to cut out to frames from the Simon Says Stamp June 2015 card kit.

2. I used Mama Elephant Sew Fancy Circle die to cut a circle in the yellow pattern paper.

3. I used my We R Memory Keepers Fuse tool and the plastic slips to created a shaker pocket.

4. I added Pretty Pink Posh 4mm and 6mm sparkling clear sequins to the shaker pocket and used the fuse tool to seal it shut.

5. I adhered the shaker packet to the back of the yellow pattern paper with adhesive.

6. I attached that top panel to the orange panel with foam tape.

7. I attached the entire panel to the card base with adhesive.

8. I used Copic markers to color my hippo.

Y17, Y38, T0, T1, T2, B000

9. I used Top Dog Dies Hello Die to cut 2 hello’s for my sentiment. I adhered the two pieces together then attached it to the card front.

And there you have it!!  My cute hippo card.  Nothing to it!

Gerda Steiner Designs is have a Design Team Call and I figured why not put my name in the pot!
