Impression Obsession “Love Is In The Air” Challenge

Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession  “Love Is In The Air” Challenge. Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so I thought I would make a traditional red and white card for Bob and me to send to my mother-in-law. I used the Love Border Word framed using the All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2, Foliage and Tiny Flowers.  The red scalloped layer was made using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables.

I cut the frames and attached the two frames together using double stick tape and then attached the Love die to the back of the frame.  I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached to the red scalloped and white layer. I applied strips of mounting tape to the back of the scalloped frame layer and attached to the card base.

I formed the flowers and foliage with my stylus and molding pad.  I cut the foliage pieces apart to create the small spray and attached them to the frame with glossy accents.  I cut small leaves off of a foliage piece and attached them with glossy accents in both of the top corners of the frame.  I attached the small flowers to the corners and larger arrangement to finish.

Bright and Cheerful Hello

Good Sunday afternoon.  My project today is fun clean and simple hello greeting card made using bright flowers and foliage with the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers and Leafy Greenery.  The scalloped layer was made using the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and the hello sentiment is from the Essentials by Ellen Lovely.

I cut the black polka dot strip using the scalloped die so the edges would match up with the white scalloped layer.  I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the polka dot strip and attached to the white layer.  I stamped the sentiment using black versafine and heat set it.  I attached the white layer to the card base with strips of mounting tape.

I formed the flowers and foliage using my stylus and molding pad and attached them to the card base using glossy accents.  This was fast and fun to make and I like the bright green, pink and yellow colorful flower and foliage against the white background.

Come Into My Garden

Good Saturday morning.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and The Altered Diaries Etsy site is the inspiration this week. I was inspired by a couple of the images. I liked the flourishes in the Sepia Florals ATC Backgrounds and the vintage flowers in the Paris Green Flowers images.  The beautiful floral paper is from the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Collection (I think it is retired).  I used the Impression Obsession Wrought Iron Fence, Leafy Background and Tiny Flowers to create the gate scene.  I used my Nesting Card Templates to create a thin frame border for the side and bottom of the fence gates.

I started by cutting the fence sections and a thin 1/8” frame.  I wanted to create a more substantial border for the fence sections so I cut the frame in half, applied 1/8” double stick tape to the back of it and attached each section to the side and bottom of the  fence sections.  I trimmed the frame on both the top and bottom to fit.  I applied 1/8” double stick tape to the back of the fence side and attached them to the card base.

I like to find more than one way to use my dies if possible.  The Leafy Background is so pretty to cover a whole card front but I out the foliage sections to use as trailing flowers and foliage for the fence.

I formed the tiny flowers using the stylus and molding pad from Susan’s Garden Tool Kit. I randomly attached the flowers to the vines using glossy accents.  Then I placed dots of glossy accents to a few key places on the back of the fine sections and attached them to the fence.  I was careful to not let any of the glossy accents to stick on the floral paper so I could open the keep the gates free to open.  I added a little bling to the floral paper and some of the tiny flower centers by attaching Sparkling Clear sequins.  I have to laugh a little at myself.  I have never used sequins on my projects until recently.  I have fallen in love with the touch of sparkle.

Framed Butterflies

Good Sunday morning.  I have a clean and simple card to share with you today using the Impression Obsession Medium Butterflies and My Favorite Things Gift Box Cover-Up.  I added a little bling by adding Hero Arts Assorted Clear Crystals

I attached the frame to the card base using strips of mounting tape.  The butterflies were attached to the base using rolled up glue dots.

I added two of the self adhesive crystals to the butterflies to add interest and sparkle.  This is a good all purpose card to use for any occasion.
