October Club Q

Hello and Welcome!

WOW! Check out this month's Club Q, the papers and colors are gorgeous!!! Plus all the chipboard pieces, brads and ribbon are included. Definitely one of my favorite releases! Here is another fun idea you can create with the October Page Layouts Club Q kit.


This kit is designed with a fall theme, but you can use it year round. As I LOVE these papers, I wanted to have them pop, so I added dark brown cardstock from my stash. Here is the step-by-step:
  • Trim orange pattern paper to 11.5" x 11.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Trim flower pattern paper to 9.25" x  10.5", distress edges and ink with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Edge pre-cut red pattern paper with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, and mat on brown cardstock.
 
  • Ink blend a pattern onto the chipboard title with a stencil using Cool Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink. (I used a brick stencil to mimic the stone structure in the photo.)
 
  • Add splatters using Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink mixed with water.
 
  • Adhere photos, title, ribbon and red brads
  • Color chipboard leaves with Cactus, Barn Board and Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Inks and die cut branches for the inside paper piece of the green frame. Then adhere.
 
  • Edge pre-cut green frame with Mahogany PowderPuff Chalking Ink, add journaling and orange brads. Tuck behind photo.

Dandelion Card

Hello and welcome!

I have a fun card for you today. Generally, I do very colorful projects, but this card is primarily black and white with a touch of pink and sparkle.




The background was created by smooching Cool Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink mixed with water onto watercolor paper. Next I stamped these pretty dandelions from Joy Clair's Spring Time Flowers set. The stems were elongated with a black pen. The sentiment is by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps from their Ka-boom set.



To add a little sparkle, Clear Stickles was applied to the flowers and silver thread was tied to the top. This card is based on a sketch from Sketch N Scrap.

Cute Pup Card

Hello and Welcome!

I've got a fun and happy card for your today featuring a great technique!


The background was created by stamping the balloons (from Winnie & Walter's So Tweet set) with gray ink. Then using the coordinating die, die cut a mask and use that to color the images. Here I ink blended using Distress Oxide inks.



The adorable pup is from Winnie & Walter's Dog-gone Cute set and colored with Zig Clean Color Markers. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter's The Party set. And, yep, that's 3 different stamps sets! This card is based on a sketch by Sketch N Scrap.

Spinning Mouse Card

Hello and Welcome!

Interactive cards are so fun. I can't wait to give this spinning mouse to my little niece!


This card was created with Art Impressions Spinning Mouse stamp and die set. It is great how this set makes creating this card so easy. I started by stamping and coloring (with Zig Clean Color Markers) both sides of the mouse & ornament. Then I cut them out.


 
Next I die cut the frame, stamped the sentiment and added the die cut tree branch (by Die-namites). Then silver thread was taped to the top and bottom of the frame. Lastly, both sides of the mouse were adhered to the thread.

Beautiful Day Layout

Hello and Welcome!

While looking at colleges for Aaron in Madison, Wisconsin, we stumbled on this amazing park called Olbrick Botanical Gardens. It is full of beautiful little pockets to explore. We spent hours and had so much fun. Here is a layout I created about that day:




This layout was created with Altenew's "Charmed" stamp set. I love how easy and beautiful everything turned out. The flower stamp was stamped several times vertically, then colored with watercolor brush markers. The watercolors blend effortlessly on Bristol paper.




The flowers in the lower right corner of the photo were stamped, colored, fussy cut and popped up over the picture.



The title and quote are also from Altenew's Charmed set. I stamped and heat embossed them. I think they perfectly describe our day. This page is based on a sketch by Altenew.

Celebrate!

Hello and Welcome!

My mother-in-law loves orange and yellow. So I created this card for her birthday.

 

I ink blended 2 panels - one with yellows and one with oranges. Next I die cut each panel using My Favorite Things' Sun Die-namics Cover Up. Then I paper pieced it together. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter's The Big, The Bold & The Party Cutaways.
