Super EXCITING News & Garden Delight LO/ Card


Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all!!
Today I have some SUPER EXCITING News to share with you all, I am now part of the Club Scrap Artist Team, and so excited to be designing for this AWESOME company! They have the most beautiful design paper , and the thickness is just awesome! I LOVE all the sweet embellishments and goodies you receive in their kits, I absolutely LOVE their kits, and cant tell you how excited I am to now be designing with them!!! whooooohoooo!!! :) You can see both of my projects here on the Club Scrap Blog.
Everything you see on my pages here was designed using their September Club Kit called "Garden Shed Deluxe Kit" . I did use some dies to cut out all flowers using again their beautiful design paper. I submitted this 2 page layout and a card for the final round :)
All details are listed below on my 2 page layout. 
 Garden Delight 2 page LayoutPage 1 & 2
green 12 x 12 card stock
Yellow 11 3/4" x 11 3/4"
Design paper 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" I then added sewing.
Page 1 & 2 - Photo matte measures 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" for the green, the yellow is 6" x 4" , and then the design paper is 3 3/4" x 5 3/4"
I cut the printed cut a part sheet to get my banners for the left hand corner on page 1, and then the right corner on page 2. I then took scissors to distress the edges, I also used an antique linen ink to distress over the edges.  All the flowers were cut out with dies using the 8 1/2" x 11" design paper sheets. I also fussy cut the bee's and butterfly. I then did my favorite technique the Glass flower technique that I use on most of my flowers. This was done using clear embossing powder and NO inks or paints. That way you can see the beautiful prints on each of the flowers. I do have video's on the glass flower technique on my blog. The branches were cut using a paper punch and your  pale green card stock. I did add different size pearls to the centers of all my flowers. 

The sweet plant stakes I loved working with. I used the stencil and airbrushed the LOVE & BLOOM on them with copic markers and my airbrushing system. For the
"LOVE Stake" I stamped the Garden Freshness stamp on white card stock and then colored it in, and punched it out using a circle punch. The edged of the circle were airbrushed.  I thought the little bee would look cute with some clear glitter stickles on his wings. I then cut out the printed green card stock and popped the sentiment on top of that. Lastly I attached the sentiment tag to the plant stake. The bee at the top of page 1  was fussy cut and then I added some glitz to his wings. The bee that is on the flower on page 2 was also fussy cut and I used the glass technique on it and the butterfly. The charms in this set are too sweet so I added the watering can charm to page 1, and then the garden shovel to page 2. I LOVE the buttons and added 1 to that page as well. Lastly I had to add some of the beautiful ribbon to my page, and did so behind the clusters of flowers.
Supplies Used on layouts:
3 green photo mattes
3 yellow photo mattes
2 8 1/2" x 11 printed papers for the photo mattes
green card stock for leaves
Printed green card stock for scalloped circle
butterfly and snail cut out from one of the printed sheets
4 12 x 12 colored card stock sheets
2 12" x 12" printed papers for layouts
printed papers for 44 flowers
1 cut a part printed sheet
all cream colored ribbon
2 charms
1 button, and piece of fiber through it
2 garden stakes
stencil sheet
Copic markers
half backed pearls
sewing in yellow thread
Tim holtz distress ink in antique linen
stickles , clear embossing powder, heat gun, glue gun, scissors, cutter, sewing machine,
punches, and flower die
I want to thank you for stopping by, and please let me know what you think of my layouts :)

Polar Pals Postcard

 Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all! Today's Post Card or Present tag was designed for I Brake for Stamps using the super cute Polar Pals stamp. I LOVE this sweet stamp, and coloring it was super fun and easy!

I stamped my Polar Pals stamp in black soot ink on this post card that was cut out of a design paper sheet. I colored up the little ones top and hat with 2 different red copics R37 & 39. The bow on the Polar Bear was done in copics G05 & YG03. Pants were done using a Brown E57, and then boots in 100 black.

I stamped I Brake for Stamps "Merry Christmas" in Black soot too! Lastly I added some stickles to the heart, and then the wings and hat on the Polar Pals image.

Ribbon is Emerald shimmer satin, from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then I added a little silver glitter stardust rhinestone.
 How super fun & Easy this was to create. Without the bow, it could be sent in the mail. However I think its perfect for a large gift for Christmas
Thank you for looking!!
