Sentiment stickers….

Hello friends.

I’m back today with a whack of cards to share.  A while back I got a Jen Hadfield sticker pack from Love is in the Details that was 6 pages of sentiment stickers for making cards.  Sentiments like, Thank you, Hello, Congrats, Celebrate, Thinking of You and Happy Birthday.  All the most common ones we need right?  I figured they would help me make short work of creating a bunch of cards in very little time.

Because of the color theme of the sticker pack, I decided that kraft cardstock would go with all of them, so that was the base from which each card was built.  Either the card base, the card panel and/or some embellishments would be kraft.  Then I pulled out my container of leftover bits and pieces of unused embellishments or die cuts or other shapes that had no other place to call home.  I also decided that my embossing folders had been neglected so I pulled out a few of those.  Beyond that, there are no special techniques I used, just piled on some of this, and combined it with some of that and finished up with 8 cards.  You only see 7 here because I made two of the white star embossed card for friends who are graduating this year.  I’ll just post each of the cards here for you to see and hopefully use for some inspiration for your own card making.

Goin’ to the Chapel….

Hello friends!  Tis the season to be receiving wedding invitations in the mail… We’re off to a wedding ourselves, in Montana next weekend, and I’m ready with the chipboard titles!

As you know, there have been some new laser cut chipboard cuts available in the store recently and today I want to share with you, a set that I’ve created for all the LOVE occasions you might be wanting to express!  Wedding Words will be available in an assortment of sizes - suitable for card making, scrapbook layout titles and home decor pieces.  This is what they look like.

Here are a couple of projects I did using 2 of the laser cuts; a card and a layout.

I’m finally digging into the Indigo Skies paper line from Kaisercraft.  I’ve only been hoarding it for close to a year….  There isn’t a paper pattern in the lot that I don’t love!  All those shades of blue!

For this card, I painted the chipboard sentiment with white spray paint in a well ventilated area (in the backyard), then layered it over some vellum and patterned paper with a strip of ribbon and a few pearl dots to finish it.

Next I have a layout to show you, with photos from my son and daughter-in-laws wedding (nearly 5 years ago!  That blows me away!)

The “hello happiness” sentiment can fit on a regular A2 sized card, but works very nicely for a layout title as well.  This time I left it natural, and layered it over a sticker and some random bits and pieces laying at the bottom of my leftovers container.

Under the photos on this layout, I roughly painted a area slightly larger than the photos and mats, using Dylusions grey paint made from mixing black and white.  Once it dried, I adhered the photos over 4 randomly patterned papers from my stash.

To give more visual weight to the smaller photo, I printed it in color and gave it a chipboard frame as well as adorning it with a pink and gold glitter (ME!  Gold glitter!  I know!) paper bow.

Once more, I dug through the left-overs dish, and layered together an assortment of leaves and die cuts, (to help balance the weight of the grey patterned paper along the left side).  Finally, I recorded their names and dates (minimalist journaling for this page), with a Jumbo alphabet roller stamp.

The laser cutting folks that cut for the store are a little backed up right now, so while these chipboard sentiments aren’t available in the store today, they will be very shortly!  When they do come available, I hope you’ll enjoy using them on your paper crafting projects!  Thanks for stopping by today!
