New Traditions – Christmas Joy Card

There’s only just under ten more weeks before Christmas and I have been slowly making some Christmas cards.  I’m excited to share with you my first card for this year’s holiday season, and it was a delight to create with the new Luxury Cardstock range and Christmas collections from Crafters Choice.

Crafters Choice materials: New Traditions A4 Luxury Cardstock Pack, New Traditions Die-Cut Pack, New Traditions Cards & Envelopes

I have used the red card from the New Traditions Card Pack for the base and punched one side of the front of the card.  I then trimmed a Mirror and Matt Card from the gorgeous Luxury Cardstock Pack and punched one side.  These are then layered under the same punched side of the card.

I trimmed a couple more Matt and Mirror card pieces and layered this on top of the card.  I then added some stenciling and mediums on top, and then adhered the joy title from the New Traditions Die-Cut Pack.  I finished the sentiment off by adding a small flower cluster to it.

For a beautiful finish, I trimmed another Mirror card to size and adhered this inside the card.  Last but not the least, I trimmed a small piece of white cardstock and adhered this inside the card which will give me some space to write a message.

Thanks for popping and I hope I got you excited and looking forward to the Christmas season and get creating.  Check out the Ruby Rock-It Brands range HERE or at a Spotlight and a scrapbooking shop near you.

Cheers,

Bella Botanical Bloom

Spring has sprung in New Zealand and the sunnier weather has inspired me to create with Bella’s gorgeous Botanical collection.  I wanted to fill my display with lively colors much like bright spring floral blooms.

Ruby Rock-It materials: Bella Botanical Collection, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers

I was doing a clean up at home and found an odd piece that looked like rubbish, which I decided to keep and tranform into my spring bloom display.

There are so many beautiful flowers, leaves, and butterflies to fussy cut from the Botanical collection which I’ve added to my cluster.


I then painted and misted around the display for a nice bright finish, just how lively spring season makes me feel.  Last but not the least, I added some painted Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers for the title.  Gotta love spring blooms!

Thanks for popping and and I hope you enjoyed my bright botanical display.  For more Ruby Rock-It, click HERE.

Boo – CCB Fall Blog Hop

I’m so glad you are here with our awesome CCB Fall Blog hop. Being with fellow faboulus designers world wide inspires me to create with Canvas Corp Brands Tattered Angels, 7 Gypsies and and Canvas Corp.  We have each created a project to inspire and share with you, showing off all thing CCB. Some are offering prizes, so make sure to hop on each blog.  Don’t forget share the word about our CCB Fall blog hop.

What I love about Fall is Halloween, and today I’m sharing a Halloween card. I enjoy creating Halloween cards with my Tattered Angels mists and Canvas Corp cardstock, and today I get to share with you my purple card:

Canvas Corp Brands materials:

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Graphite, Periwinkle Bouquet, Vanilla Breeze, Pearl

Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists: Grape Ape, Black Orchid, Admiral, Chalk

Canvas Corp: Ivory Cardstock, Canvas Fringe

7Gypsies: Architextures – Build Parchment Rub Ons

Other materials: Chipboard, Black Flakes, Bling, Stencil

Shop Canvas Corp Brands HERE.

First I trimmed down the Ivory Cardstock to size and rubbed a couple of images from the Build Parchment Rub-Ons onto the card.  Next I blended the purple Glimmer and Chalboard Mists onto the card.  I then spritzed the other shades of mists onto a stencil to add to the card’s background.

I painted the Grape Ape Chalkboard Mist onto the chipboard and layered this under the alphas with some Canvas Fringe misted with the Admiral Chalkboard Mist.  I found some old spare alphas from Tattered Angels’ retired Irresistable Alphas range, which I have misted with the same Admiral color and then shaded the edges with the Graphite Glimmer Mist.  I finished it off by adding some black flakes and bling and voila!

I hope you enjoyed my little wee purple Halloween card and thanks heaps for taking the time to pop in.  Head along to the whole team’s awesome blogs for more inspiration:

Box of Fun – Bella Nursery

I’ve been getting my fingers inky with my new baby layout featuring Bella’s new adorable Nursery collection with Ranger’s Distress Inkpads.  I always enjoy scrapping baby photos as it always takes me back to my childrens’ memories.

Bella materials: Nursery Collection, Bolt Florals, Bolt Chipboard Buttons, Gold Corrugated Cardstock, Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers

Ranger Distress Inkpads: Evergreen Bough, Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Weathered Wood

Other: Ranger Foam Applicator, White Cardstock, Mists, Stencils, Mediums

First I layered and stencilled my sunshine yellow mists on a white cardstock and let it set.  I then added some mediums and combined the different shades of Distress Ink on the page for depth and color.

I then framed my daughter’s photo with Bella’s Gold Corrugated Cardstock.  I love the shine and dimension of this versatile specialty cardstock.  The picture is then surrounded with some pretty golden florals from the Bolt collection.

Next I punched and fussy cut some sentiment and cute images from Bella’s Nursery paper collection, inking the edges with the Distress Ink.  I then adhered these around the page along with a gold foiled Bolt Chipboard Button.  It’s finished off with some more inking and stamping the title on the bottom of the page using the Fundamentals Alpha Wood Veneers.

I had so much fun getting creative with my daughter’s baby photo.  It’s so funny how she’s got all the toys in the world and the most fun she’s had is playing in, on, and around empty boxes.  Funny that, eh?

Check out more of Bella HERE or at a Spotlight store near you.

Where Heaven Has Touched The Earth

Hi there.  I’ve got a lush green layout to share with Aga Baraniak’s Compose Your Life paper collection and Tattered Angels’ paints, together it is a match made in heaven.  I just love this collection and the papers are great for adding layers of mediums.  Here is my heaven on earth layout:

Canvas Corp materials:

Compose Your Life 12×12 Paper: Be Strong
Compose Your Life 12×12 Paper: Red Flower Pieces
The Watering Can: Garden Words on Ivory Reverse Paper
12×12 E-Flute Black
Cord – Braided Cotton Rope: Bright White
Waxed Cotton Cord

Tattered Angels materials:

Glimmer Mists: Kiwi, Pistachio, It’s Brown, Graphite
Chalkboard Mist: Chalk

I generously misted the Kiwi Glimmer mist for my background with some splattering of the Graphite Glimmer Mist and Chalk Chalboard Mist.  I then lightly brushed the edges of the page with the It’s Brown Glimmer Mist.

I trimmed the sentiment off the Garden Words on Ivory Reverse Paper and fussy cut some leaves from the Red Flower Pieces paper and added these to the page.

Nothing can be more heavenly than have a perfect Spring wedding day and seeing your daughters walk down the aisle for you.  This truly was an unforgettable memory which I will forever treasure , and I’m so happy how my page turned out.

All Canvas Corp Brands’ range are available HERE.  Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers,

Dream Big – A Little Girl’s Card


Hi there.  Today I’m sharing a magical little girl’s birthday card filled with unicorn and pretty pinks.  Here’s to encouraging a birthday girl to dream big:

Bella materials: Magic & Wonder Paper Collection, Franchville Pastels and Neutrals Cardstock Pack

The pastel pink Franchville cardstock is the perfect base for this fun girly card.  I then die cut the black Franchville cardstock and layered it amongst the pretty Magic & Wonder paper and fussy cut image.  Some misting, inking and flowers from my stash are then added to finish the card.


What fun it was creating with the Bella’s sweet and magical Magic & Wonder collection.  Check out more of Ruby Rock-It Brands’ range HERE.

Cheers,
