I Love You Card – Paper Patch Crafts Challenge

Paper Patch Crafts has a challenge where you can create a card based on a sketch being shared on Card Sketch Challenge event.   According to the rules you have until Jan. 13th midnight to post a picture of your never seen, brand new project under the event. Here is my interpretation of the PageMaps sketch that is being used. I made my card using the Carta Bella Beautiful Moments Collection which includes paper, stickers, borders and die cuts. 

I inked all of my pieces with Chestnut Roan Ink before I glued them to my card base. I tore my border edges before I inked them and stapled the border into place.

I wrapped brown twine around both the card front and made a mimic bird nest for the bird to add a bit more interest to my card. Place the birds on pop dots as well as the circle which I added a piece of bling to. The sentiment is a rub on from Bazzill. I sure hope you try your had at the challenge going over at Paper Patch Crafts because the prize is a really nice set of stamps from The Stamps of Life. Hugs Pammejo

Princess Themed Blog Hop – My Princess Book with Imaginisce

Welcome to my blog and the Princess Blog Hop. If you happen to stumble upon my Blog and would like to play along please do so by starting at Sylvia’s blog over at www.bellascrapbookdesigns.blogspot.com. If you came from the very talented Haidee’s Created 2 Bunique then you are heading in the right direction. I hope that you will enjoy the Princess Castle Book that I made for the hop and be patient with all of the photos that I placed on my blog today. I took a KaiserCraft 4 page book and made more pages and inserts for it. My plans are to do a dress up album on my 5 year old grand daughter after Christmas with all of her princess clothes on.

Here are some clear charms that are on one the top rings of my book, they are a bit hidden in all of the ribbon and lace that I tied on the rings.

This is the front on the KaiserCraft Book, I added some Hambly overlays and made sure when I covered the back of the book that you were able to see through the windows.

The Back of the front of the book, I used the Imaginisce Enchanted Collection of paper, rub on, etc.

I love to doddle so I did the border with a Signo White Pen, this is the first of the pages that I cut from Chipboard and added to the KaiserCraft Book.

The back side of the page, I used more of the Hambly Overlay and some felt green ribbon and gemstones

I added a large metal Blessed title to this page that I made from chipboard.

This is the back side of the page, my flower is made from two different size scallop circles, I cut toward the center of each of each of the circles to form the circle and added a brad to the center.

Here is the second of the original book, I added a ribbon and a ribbon slide to the bottom of my page

I used a Snag’Em Stamp from the Enchanted collection and colored it in with my water colored pencils.

Here is another page that I cut from chipboard and added to the book.

I added some more of the Hambly Overlay with a rub on from the collection.

On this page that I added I made an insert pocket to give a little more interest to my book and also give a secret hiding place.

See it just slides in behind the photo mat that I made.

This is the back side of the page. On chipboard “Play All Day” I added a little Glossy Accent to give the word “ALL” a little pop off the page.

The third page of the original book I added two photo mats, rub ons and some gemstones to the bottom. On the turrets I made windows out of a paper doilies, I also did the roof using the scraps from the doilies.

The back side of the page, I added a rub on to the left side of the page and place a border down the middle so I would know where to place my photo when I was ready.

I added some more doodle lines to this page that I made from Chipboard and added a rub on carriage to the left side.

On the back side I added a My Minds Eye rub on.

and then on the corresponding page continued with the rub on from the package.

Of course this is an extra page that I added to the book.

And here is the backside of the page along with another rub on from the Imaginisce Enchanted collection.

This is the last page of the original KaiserCraft Book. I did some fussy cut flowers on the bottom of my photo mat. You can actually see through the window that I placed the Hambly Overlay in.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my Castle book as much as I had making it for my little “Princess”. Your next stop on the Princess Themed Blog Hop is with the fabulous Laura at Sunflower Creations.

Magnificent Mini Cards

Seems like the rave right now are these 3″ x 3″ mini cards so I made these 6 mini cards using the GCD Studios Ella Blue Collection – Raleigh, Georgia, Tara and Frances Paper.

On the first two cards I embellished using some chipboard flowers which I covered and I made the leaves by taking a 1/4″ strip of paper, misting it slightly with water and wrapping it around a small wooded skewer. When dried I carefully removed and formed into a leave gluing it next to the flower. Add buttons that had been threaded with crochet thread.

The next two cards I did some simply layering, addy some brown mesh to the top of chipboard oval, some buttons and gemstones. The last two cards I used Bazzill Basics Whirlpool Gingham Strip Ribbon, an EK Success border punch; again added some gemstones and threaded buttons. Now I will tell you how to make this beautiful flower.

You will need a 1, 1 1/2, 2 and 2 1/2″ circle punch, you can do it in scallop punches also. Punch one of each side, mist each piece with water. Wad each circle up to get alot of crease lines in it, the more the prettier. Allow it to dry completely, ink (I used Chestnut Roan ink). Adhere together and than and your center embellishment; gemstones, buttons, brads, etc. Hope you enjoy and try them out.

"Homespun Chic Card Tin

I made this lovely tin using the Homespun Chic Collection. Inside are two A2 cards, one 3 x3 card and a gift tag. I have them further down on the blog post.
On the top of the tin I place one of the Layered Frames from the collection and backed it with some of the Vintage Sewing Pattern paper. Love Prima Flowers so just had to add them to the top of the tin along with some bling, lace and tulle. It turned out to be a wonderful gift to give to someone special in my life.

I selected Heidi Grace’s Dream stamps to use in the collection. The heart on the first card is from the Melody Ross Chip Art hearts that I covered with a piece of the Vintage Jane paper. The heart gives dimension to the card, I also took one of the Glass Paper clips and broke off the paper clip so I would be able to continue my theme on my cards and glued it to the center of one of my circles. All pieces throughout the collection is inked with Warm Red Colobox ink. On the button of the 3 x 3 card I enjoy using twine to give button character and depth as to have it just glue onto something.

On my Dream Card I stamped my image and than using my Copic Markers -R24,R27, R29 and G14 I color in my frame. I used the G14 on the borders of the other projects also; again just to give consistency to the cards and tags. I added one of the Glass Paper clips to the top of the Dream frame and placed it and the Imagine frame up on pop dots. Also placed a few of the Prima Flowers and some Kaisercraft bling to my tag. Hope you enjoy my gift tin and make a few for your gift giving.

Love Plaque

This is my first project as a “Spotlight Gal” for GCD Studios. I am honor to have been selected for August. I made this “Love Plaque” simply because I love GCD products. I used the Ella Blue Collection – Frances and Georgia papers, along with the Homespun Chic Pink Redwood paper. I purchased my board at our local craft store for 2.99 , I had a 40% coupon. Yippee!!! My blue berries and brown flowers were also purchased there on sale. Another Yippee!!!
The other flowers are from Prima and Stringing Heart Flowers along with some that I made. I painted my frame first using Creamcoat Burnt Umber. I put my paper on the inside of plaque. Added some large twill ribbon and mini blue ric rac. I took 2 – 3 1/2″ dollies and ink the top of them with my Chestnut Roan ink, once they were ink I glue 1 doily to the lower inside left corner, 1/2 of a doily to the top right of the curve and 1/4 doily to the lower right inside corner of my plaque. My letters are the GCD Big Alphabet that I covered with the Frances Paper and ink using Chestnut Roan ink.

Following are a few picture to show you how to make these flowers. So, so easy and so cute.

I used a Marvy 3 1/2″ punch for my large flowers, but you can use any size. Just remember the smaller the circle the small the flower.

I cut the circle with my scissors so it would be a spiral.

Taking my tweezers I began rolling and as I rolled I would occasionally put us a small amount of glue to hold it into place.

When I got it completely rolled I glue it to a small circle. When I knew my glue was dry I than added it to my plaque along with a little bling. The smaller paper flowers I will be showing you later this month. So please remember to come and check out what tutorials I will have for you to enjoy.
