Here’s To No Drama

Hi there.  I’ve got a masculine card to share with you today which features Canvas Corp’s Main Street Collection’s Live Your Life Tags.

How fun are these tags? Here’s my cheeky, “Here’s to no drama” masculine card:

Canvas Corp Brands materials: Thickstock – Vanilla Speckle, Main Street Collection Tags – Live Your Life, Architextures™ Junque Pack – Parlour, Night B4 Christmas Glimmer Mist, Chalk Chalkboard Mist

For the base of my card, I trimmed and folded Canvas Corp’s Vanilla Speckle Thickstock.  It is one of my favourite cardstock in my crafting arsenal and I love the quality, look, and feel of it.  It’s perfect for heavy layering and wet mediums, and is a good alternative from a plain white cardstock.

I then added a layer of 7Gypsies’ Architextures™ Junque Pack – Parlour for an effortless and amazing crackled texture finish.

Next I stencilled some mediums and generously misted a layer of gorgeous color with Tattered Angels’ Night B4 Christmas Glimmer Mist.  It is one of the bright Tattered Angels Mist color that goes well with almost anything.

I then layered one of the fun tags from Canvas Corp’s Main Street Collection amongst some bits and bobs from my stash.  I finished it all by spritzing some Tattered Angels’ Chalk Chalkboard Mist on top and voila!

I really enjoyed creating this card and the reciever loves it as much as I do.  Check out the Canvas Corp Brands shop HERE.

Cheers,

Mata Hari Inspired Mixed Media Artboard

It’s time to reveal Canvas Corp Brands’ September Challenge which is inspired by the Mata Hari:

MATA HARI……Spy or not? This intriguing woman of Dutch origin remains a mystery. However, THIS October it will be exactly 100 years ago she was executed. Rightfully so? Maybe we will find out after all these years. Her oriental style, costumes, elaborate jewelry… Plenty to inspire you to create something about this woman and help us celebrate her throughout September.

Rules:

To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry  Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool at The Creative Studio HERE. You have until the end of October 5 to submit your project!  All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered. One entry per person allowed.

We will invite the winner of the challenges to be our Guest Designer in November. This means that they will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with.

Here’s my interpratation of the Mata Hari challenge:

“Architextures Mixed Media Artboard”

The Mata Hari in my eyes is every bit artistic, especially her style and the way she carries herself. These aspects have inspired me to create a mixed media Artboard with 7gypsies’ Architextures range. Touches of jewels, sparkle and golden shine adorn the artboard, much like the Mata Hari. Her statuesque presence is also the inspiration with the Weathered Statue which is the focal point of this piece.

For the instructions and full materials list of this Artboard, please head to the Creative Studio’s blog post HERE

We cannot wait to see all your beautiful Mata Hari inspired creations.  Simply link them up HERE and be in to win an amazing prize pack and a guest design spot next month.

I really enjoyed creating this Artboard and I’ll be back for more creations soon.

Cheers,

Imagine – ATC Hanging Wall Art

Happy Easter to you!  It’s nice to be creating and blogging again after a very busy start to the month.  We have a new April “Feathers” Challenge up at the Creative Studio for Canvas Corp Brands:

The How To:

Use Feathers as your inspiration when you create. You can also incorporate items or colors from the moodboard. Create, decorate, sew, knit or paint – release your imagination and be creative!

This month we have a different prize – we will invite the winner of the challenge to be our Guest Designer in June. This means that you will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with! 

To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry  Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool HERE. You have until the end of May 5 to submit your project!  All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered.

Here’s my April “Feathers” project:

“Imagine” ATC Hanging Wall Art

Canvas Corp Brands Materials:

Tattered Angels:
Navy High Impact Paint
Chalkboard Mists: Grape Ape, Black Orchid, Splash, Chalk
Glimmer Mists: Sapphire, Night B4 Christmas, Dragonfly, Periwinkle Bouquet, Abominable Snowman, Pearl, Crushed Shells, Gold

Canvas Corp:
Denim Fabric Sheet
Teal Burlap Flower
Dark Blue Burlap Sheet
Sisal Rope
Natural Hank Cord Rope
Cream Hank Braided Rope
Chocolate & Ivory Feathers Reverse 12×12 Paper

7 Gypsies: Lace Trimmings

I was inspired by the whole mood board…the gorgeous deep shades of blue and purple, the feathers, and the dream catcher.

I thought what a great idea it would be to transform an ATC into a hanging wall art inspired by the concept of dream catchers.

I’ve also used a couple of gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboards and stencil for this project:

Scrapmatts Chipboards: ATC10-008 Rounded Corners 01, CB1028 Butterflies 18, CB1238 Scrap Words 24

Scrapmatts Stencil: ST5033 Stencil Triangles

I really wanted to add layers and layers of color and texture throughout this hanging ATC wall art.  If you look closely you’ll see crackle here and there, dimensional butterflies against the stenciled triangles immersed in Tattered Angels paints.  I really love every single nook and cranny of this project.

I hope I’ve inspired you to join our awesome April “Feathers” Challenge.  Simply link up your entry HERE.  There’s an amazing prize pack and guest design spot up for grabs.  We can’t wait to see all your beautiful creations.  You’ve got 20 days to enter so get creating.

Enjoy your Easter weekend!
