Lovely as a Tree

This is my first attempt at masking and sponging on a card.  I sponged a variety of colors to obtain this look. First, I cut out a 3/4 inch circle and placed it on the card. Next I sponged the sky (and around the circle) with lighter browns and yellows (more mustard, crumb cake). Then I removed the circle and sponged the sun in peach parfait. I used soft sueded and a piece of torn paper to obtain the background darker areas. I stamped Lovely as a Tree in black ink and then lighly sponged green along the bottom of the card. I need to practice a bit more but was happy with my first attempt.  🙂

Simply Sent Gift Box

This cute little treat box was made with a Simply Sent card kit and the Simply Scored Board. The idea came from the blog of another demonstrator, Julie Davidson. I just loved how simple her instructions were and how cute this is.  I used the boho blossom and leaves from the bird punch to create the flowered look on this gift box. The stamp set is called Perfect Words and is a hostess set.

Elements of Style

The ladies enjoyed putting this card together at my April card class.  Such a simple sponging technique over a white emobssed image. I just fell in love with this technique!  It gives your project such an elegant look!

Vintage Birthday

As I may have mentioned in other posts, I love the vintage look on cards!  To get the vintage effects, I embossed a piece of very vanilla card stock with the tulip embossing folder, then sponged it with soft suede. I took some scrap bashful blue card stock and cut out a half of a top note die on the Big Shot embossing machine. Stamped a sentiment and punched it out with the decorative label punch.

Supplies include:
Bashful blue, very vanillia and soft suede card stock
Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon
Victoria Crochet Trim
Vintage trinkets
Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper
Baja Breeze Pleated Ribbon

Spirelli Vintage Birthday

I designed this card for our demo meeting. We were challenged to design something using the spirelli technique. The spirelli technique involves wrapping twine around the scallop blue circle on this card.  This is just one way in which to use the spirelli technique on a card.  I am a vintage girl so I love the look of this card.  I used a variety of scrap pieces of designer series paper from the Beau Chateau collection through SU.

Scrappy Birthday

I had the ladies put this together at my last workshop!  The 3 strips of card stock and designer series paper were actually scraps that I was able to use up (love when I can do that)!  We used the Elements of Style stamp set with night of navy ink on pool party card stock. The designer series paper is called Twitterpatted from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
