Club Scrap February Artist Team Challenge

 

Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps February Artist Team Challenge! This month the February Challenge was to use Club Scrap Stencils  for one of our projects. I chose to use them on my Layout for today using the Club Scraps Succulents Deluxe Club Kit as well. 
Now you should have arrived from Jennifers Blog , however if you did not come from there, you might want to start at the beginning with Karen's Club Scrap blog that way you wont miss any of the Design Teams beautiful creations. All design paper, card stock, Stamps used are from the Succulents Deluxe Club Kit.

I love all the colors, and designs in this months club kit, as it makes it easy to create many scrapbook layouts. I've done 3 with this kit so far this month, and love each one the same! This one is so soft and pretty, love the border from the Cut-a -part sheet. I layered each design on grey card stock for this layout.
 
LOVE was done using the Lower case Alpha stencils Club Scrap sent us, and I have to say I LOVE stenciling on my layouts, and can see some stenciling in a mini album too. For the LOVE I used some inks in silver and pink. it was super easy to do and love the results.
 
Flower was created by fussy cutting one of the flowers and layering it using the Glass Flower Technique, that can be found here in my Tutorials
 
Bows were created using the ribbon and fibers that are in this collection :)

 
 

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed creating this beauty using the stencils and club scraps Succulents Deluxe Kit! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!

Shabby Chic



Hello everyone, today I have a Shabby Chic Bird Cage card I created for Cheery Lynn using their beautiful dies. On my card today I chose to use 5 dies, and love how they all look together. This card was super fun and easy to create!! LOVE that!

 
Cheery Lynn Dies:
B198 Bird Cage
D138 Mini Butterflies
B307 Sweet Williams Strip
DL280 Scandinavian Doily
B587 Step Card Bundle (used the greenery in this kit)

I started out by using Graphic45 design paper and Bazzill card stock. Its been awhile since I have pulled out the G45 papers...hehehehe  I also used this beautiful shimmer embossed butterfly card stock, its the white you see on my card base , bird cage, Doily and layer 1.

Sweet William strip was used to cut out all flowers in coordinating design paper. Love how sweet they look with the little pearls. For my greenery I chose the Step Card bundle, it has some gorgeous greenery in this set. And the sweet little butterfly came from the Mini Butterflies, it too is cut out using the same dp. Love how all these dies compliment each other.

I embellished my card with sewing, and a small bow(Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon) at the top of the cage :)

 
Thank you for looking, and hope you enjoyed my post for today!

Life Without Cats...

 Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!
Today's card features The Projects Bin "Feline Good" Stamp and Die set! This set is absolutely DARLING and I knew it would go perfectly with Graphic45 Raining Cats and Dogs paper , I forgot I had bought the paper stack , as I was looking for some scraps in all my Graphic45 paper. Love how this sweet card turned out!
 I started by using some scraps and black card stock for each layer. I stamped the Kitty on a piece from another G45 stack, and then cut it out with matching die. I added some some cheeks to this kitty.

Flowers were cut using the checked pattern in this collection, & Cheery Lynns Small Tea Rose die, then I did the Glass flower technique that can be found here in my Tutorials.

Sentiment was done using the Ombre technique that I have here.

Lastly to embellish I added a Meow plastic piece, and some vintage pearls to the flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today!
hugs to all!

 Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!!
Today's card was designed for Cheery Lynn Design & The Project Bin, using the Beautiful dies and stamps they carry. I wanted my card to have a Spring feel, and this delivers just that :) It was also created for Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge this week, to create a Birthday, wedding, baby, or some kind of occasion card. Mine is a Birthday!
 On my card I used lots of darling dies from Cheery Lynn, and I am loving them all on this one!!! I also used The Project Bin sentiment stamp from the set called "Born Yesterday" this set is all about Birthdays!

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies( brown polka dot) I also added a bow, flower, and viva pearl pen to this cutie
B682 Quadrafoil Tag , cut using the Pink hearts design paper.
LPC4 Circle Pierce set cut out brown card stock, and tree dp from Pebbles

I absolutely LOVE the way this card turned out. I love all the layers , and colors, its perfect for a spring birthday!

The tree was super fun to work with, and I will have to do another of this one soon! I love the wreath strip pieces behind it, as it gives some dimension and fills in. I added the little hearts in the dp, thought it would be cute. I lastly added some flower embellishments to this!

My Big Bow was created using Really Reasonable Ribbons February Ribbon monthly kit. I also used some RRR for the bunny bow. LOVE how cute this bunny is! All embellishments are also from RRR

Friends


Hello everyone, Today I have a sweet card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their BEAUTIFUL Satin Ribbon & Gorgeous Embellishments. I LOVE the way this card turned out , as everything worked so well together.


On my card here, I chose to use this beautiful Winter Birds tag designed by Ginny, I absolutely love the darling bird, its beautiful and perfect for layering!!! You can find it here in her Etsy Shop. I cut it out and distressed it. Then I added some flowers that I created using CheeryLynn dies & My glass flower technique that can be found here. I did cut some branches using a branch punch, and added in Really Reasonable Ribbons Antique bronze leaf charms, love how these look on here.

For my big Bow, I chose to use Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin, and I love all the different types of satin you can choose from at RRR. I used a gold and a wine, they match perfect for my card today.

For embellishments I chose to use the flat backed pearls, love using them on my bows, and layers of my cards. I also will use them in the center of flowers, but on these flowers I chose some vintage beads.. for my tag and friends tag, I used the foam tabs to give a 3-D look.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by, and have a super awesome day!
