This month for my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project Melinda sent some chipboard windows to play around with. Watch the video for a 15% off discount code. I made some cards again. The plan was to make a second project but my daughter needed some help during her pregnancy so I didn’t get there.
I did manage to get a prototype made and a second card filmed though. The first was created using Worn Lipstick for the background papers. For the Damask chair from Stampendous I covered it in Frosted Crystal embossing powder from ranger. It didn’t turn out how I hoped. Not enough definition! The cat and dog I had precoloured from lawn fawn. The background brick paper is from The Craft Stall\Rosie’s Studio Flourish paper pad.
On the second card I used Tumbled Glass Oxide but I felt I should have used a darker ink like Broken China instead so that there was more contrast. The background stamp used on both cards is Floral Wall Paper from Kaisercraft. Both use flowers and vines from Art Impressions Birdhouse Cubbies set and the paper is from Prima Fairy Rhymes.
I coloured the cat and dog with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Operation Write Home. If you’d like to see my previous Scrapbookingncraft project go here and to get the windows here. I hope you enjoyed my Scrapbookingncraft May 2021 Project this month. Let me know below whether you prefer the pink or blue. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy yourself! See you next time.
Today I am sharing with you the first of three Oh Happy Day collections from the Reject Shop. In the video I made 12 cards to showcase the first collection which is a rebranding of Pink Lemonade by the looks.
Each collection comes with 36 6″ papers, 2 of each design, 3D Butterflies, a 4 pack of sticker sheets and a packet of die cuts. There is also a 12″ pack of papers but my store sold out really quickly. Instead of the usual two of each die cut there was only one. Each of the four things I bought was $3 each.
I made 11 cards with the collection using minimal supplies from my stash. Tonic Frame dies, Poppy Crafts Double Stitched Circles and Stitched Hexagons. Rosie’s Studio Still Water stamp and die set and Birthday Mix Stamps. Honey Bee Stamps Sending You stamp set. As well as Archival inks in Jet Black and Aquamarine.
I hope you enjoyed these 11 cards using Oh Happy Day 1. Let me know below your favourite. Thanks for stopping by.
I may have been shopping again… The Reject Shop has a nice tropical themed new paper craft range called Full Bloom and I happened to snag a set. What’s a girl to do but to put it straight to good use? This one was a bit out of my comfort zone with bright colours and a colour I wouldn’t normally use.
The new Full Bloom paper kit has stickers, stamps with a really cute Sloth, journaling cards, diecuts and of the paper pad. I went with the Cockatoos this time instead of the Sloth, maybe next time! The Reject Shop ranges are great value, you get so much for a fraction of the cost of designer brands.
I enjoy having a full range of products because it makes pulling together cards and layouts quick and easy. The only thing I possibly need to add is a stamped sentiment if there isn’t one I want to use in the set or washi tape. The Full Bloom kit is a nice vibrant collection. Hope you are creating some arty crafty alchemy of your own, see you all next time.
