Timeless Twine: Monochromatic Monday – Orange Crush!

Hello there everyone! orange ranks as one of my favorite colors (though I really think rainbow is my all time fav=))

So I thought it would be fun to use it as my predominant color for the monochromatic challenge today on Timeless Twine’s blog.

I used the polaroid picture frame stamp from the “Oh Snap!” stamp set to create a background and I love how graphic the result is. To add interest to the background, I decided to stamp some of the picture frames on a darker orange cardstock before adhering them to the card. This adds dimension and interest to the card. Similarly, I also added smaller squares of a different tone to the background.

Once that is done, I had a ball embellishing the card with a huge bloom from Maya Road, an orange gift tag that I matted against black cardstock for some contrast. The greeting “Happy” was stamped using stamps from the Happy Days Stamp Set. For a final touch, I sprinkled on some orange toned sequins from the Clearly Beautiful Sequins pack.

Thank you for joining me today. Hope you will try your hands at some monochromatic fun too!

Timeless Twine: Shaker Card Saturday – Say Cheese!

Hello there everyone! On Timeless Twine’s blog today, I’m sharing a camera shaker card with you.

I was inspired by the camera stamp found in the “Oh Snap!” stamp collection and decided that it will be the perfect image to create a shaker card of.

I wound twine to mimic the color strips on the top of the camera and crocheted a heart to fill in the flash button.

The sequins in the camera are a mixture of  Clearly Beautiful, Sparkly Clear and Stars silver & gold.

I had loads of fun creating this one and perhaps you might want to create a camera card too? Say cheese!

Here are links to the products I used:

Clique Kits: Clique Cards Spring Edition – Create your own background

Salutations everyone! Posting on Clique Kits blog today. I always love a challenge of creating my own backgrounds on my pages. When I first laid eyes on the Clique Cards Spring Edition, it was no exception – I had to create some background, especially with that gorgeous Altenew stamp set and I had some layouts in mind.

For my first page, I decided to cut large, narrow triangles to create a repeat pattern on the top and bottom of my page.

I love the bold effect this created and I went on to adhere my photo and embellishments. I thought a sprinkling of some of those lovely white sequins helped to soften the overall effect. We were at the museum when this photo was taken – I am grateful for the daily reminder from my kids on the importance of being curious and to learn continually.

For my second layout, I used the “hello” stamp from Altenew and covered the entire background with it. I decided to create an ombre effect, so it was certainly fun switching colors and stamping on the entire cardstock.

Hello 123 FN,  @colortypes sophie @ cliquekits, #cliquekits #cliquecardsspringedition #papercraft #inspiration #DIY #scrapbooking

I thought it was appropriate to create a background of this nature for this picture in particular – one taken on the day we discovered that we have been blessed with Bub #3. We can’t wait for his/her arrival come this November! This page is very special for me, as it will be the first  layout for my third baby’s album.The embellishment found in the kit were also ideal for this page as I had the numbers 1, 2 and 3 in the kit as well as that lovely calendar diecut.

Thank you for joining me today. Here’s a tag to round it all off, as we celebrate our everyday (and also because I can’t seem to stop using all the lovely stuff in the kit. There’s so much!). Hooray!

Timeless Twine: PlanNERD Sunday Movable Reminders

Hello Everyone! Today, I am sharing with you a glimpse into my planner for this lovely month of May on Timeless Twine’s blog. For this month, I was inspired by Bella Creationz’ newly launched stamps “Church Plans”.

I decided that it would really help me in my daily devotion to have a bookmark that reminds me to read God’s word and to pray. These bookmarks are special in that they are easily repositionable within each of my day’s square. So after I am done with my devotion and prayer, I can move the corresponding magnetic bookmark into the next day’s square.

What I did was to stamp the Bible and praying hands images on heart shaped stickers before adhering them to some gold cardstock. At the back of each heart, I attached a piece of magnet. In order to get the magnetic bookmarks to stay within a square, I repeated the steps above, but this time, I attached my heart stickers to black cardstock. These hearts are attached to the back of ,y planner page to keep the front magnets in place. You can also simplify the back magnets by simply using a piece of square magnet.

Some other details for my May pages – I went for a grey and blue color scheme this month and had fun hand cutting “m a y” from scrap pieces of paper I had around.

I decided to use those really cute flower-like stamps from the Oh Snap stamp set to demarcate important dates for design team deadlines that I have. Once I have completed the assignment, I could color-in the bloom as a note to myself.

As always, I love that really awesome hydrate stamp from the planNERD stamp set. That is a permanent fixture on my monthly pages and it thrills me to no end to color-in or cancel each cup I drink.

All stamps used in my May pages can be found in the Bella Creationz online shop. It is closed for a few days, but will be re-opening shortly.

Thank you for joining me once again and I hope you have been inspired to create some moveable magnetic bookmarks for your planner. Have a fruitful and amazing May!

Clique Cards Spring Edition: All Occasions Cards

Hello there everyone! Today I am sharing some cards I made with the awesome Clique Cards Spring Edition. I love the refreshing color palette of this kit and the tons of stuff packed into it. So here are some cards I have created, which I kept flexible, so I can use them for different occasions.

Here’s the first, “Everything is Awesome”.

When I found out that a good friend was expecting her second child (one she has been waiting for), I was so thrilled and decided that a card was in order, especially one using that gorgeous piece of patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye with all those gold crosses! So loads of confetti, sequins and a gold banner to celebrate the occasion. Love the stamps in the set from Altenew. So much potential! I stamped the word “celebrate” using different tones of inks to create and ombre effect, before outlining the word in gold. While I made it to celebrate a pregnancy, I think it will work well for a birthday or happy event too (just tweak the number accordingly!).

For the next card, I kept it simple. I cut strips of paper and created a 3D bloom before adhering the circular die cut “love” in the middle. I also layered vellum on top of my cardstock to soften the colors.

Finally, to toss things up a little, I made a gift tag. See that rosette? I used the glassine bag found in the packaging to create it. Nothing like upcycling! I think those puffy gold crown and moustache stickers are reminiscent of photo booths that are so popular at parties these days. So on they went, for a touch of fun.
