Hey!! I’m back with the projects I’ve designed for Split Coast Stampers as part of the Creative Crew Team for May-August 2017. It’s an honor to be asked to design for this amazing community and I’m enjoying every minute of it! I hope you like the projects I’ve created and are inspired to play along with us as we create for this month’s theme of “Promises of New Things.” Best friends day is June 8th so I also created a few of my cards that can be used for that also!The first challenge is the sketch challenge and I chose to use the NEW Memories & More Color Theory cards as my background. I am a scrapbooker but I don’t usually do pocket scrapbooking except for my Christmas album each year. These cards are perfect for me as background pieces and when I first saw the sketch I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Memories and More cards. I’m in love with the new ribbon from the incolor line, it’s so soft and pliable and makes great bows even though it’s wider than I normally use. Berry burst is my new color love, so I’m sure you’ll see plenty of it in my upcoming projects. The stamped sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
Step It Up Challenge:
These 2 great cards were created with the new Daisy Designer Series paper, Pool Party and Calypso Coral cardstock. The sentiment came from Rose Wonder and the white doily is cut using the new Eastern Medallion dies. The new Daffodil Delight stitched ribbon is fantastic and I can’t wait to get some of the other colors. The faceted gems make an appearance on these cards as well, the flowers are punched using the now retired petite petal punch 😦 however there are several die sets that have flower dies that you could use to cut out some cute little flowers. The stepped up card also uses the Petal Burst embossing folder.
I love this card! I admit I have used the Eastern Medallion dies way more than I thought I ever would. I only ordered the basic Eastern Palace bundle when it was available, but when I saw the multiple ways that the framelits were being used, I had to order them and I’m so glad I did. The Wood Words Bundle is predominately featured on this card, that crate framelit is to die for!!! The wood designer series paper is over stamped with the floral stamp from Wood Words, I stamped the floral design on the flower die cuts and the sentiment is white craft ink onto the crate which is also cut from the wood designer series paper. The leaves are fussy cut from the Daisy designer series paper. Flower centers are the new faceted gems. I also used a bit of the Very Vanilla lace trim and my beloved linen thread. Card base is crumb cake cut to A2 size 8.5″ x 5.5″
