Do Over

Catch the Bug: Bingo

I had made this background paper into a card and just was not happy with it. Once I had cut this leaf frame I knew it would make a much better card. Added black splatter then two tags with black stamped sentiment and some ribbon.

Cut file for a greenery frame

As You See It: Color Challenge

Jennifer McGuire did a new twist on gate folds and I wanted to try it. I did not have the frame with greenery die so I made one with my Silhouette. Cut it three times in white layering weight cs then glued them together. Sponged stacked rock stencil on gate folded white cs with green ink then glued top half of frame to that. Glued tag with inked dots and sentiment to bottom half of gate fold base then added green leaves so they hang over the top.

Make your own

If you don’t have a scan and cut or you just want this file in an SVG please email me and I will email you my file.

Tip: I found when using Gina K Connect glue it worked much better if I put the glue in dots on the face of the bottom frame and stacked going up. It was much easier to align and shift. For some odd reason, if the glue was on the back of the top piece and I tried to lay it on the next in the stack down, the paper wanted to warp and was hard to shift for alignment.

Playing with stencil and perfect pearls

Taped the harlequin stencil on layering weight cs and sprinkles blue perfect pearls. Sprayed with water then placed another white cs on top and pressed lightly. Once dry, layered on white cs base with fun foam backing. Layered Silhouette cut filigree that was heat embossed with white and die cut tag that has sparkle spray then black stamped sentiment.

Tic-Tac-Toe over at Cuttlebug Mania

Craft Stamper: any thing goes

What I was trying to accomplish was a homegrown peeled paint. I first cut out a stencil of what was to be peeled paint but it sponged like stacked rocks. This background is a printed image of what was labeled peeled paint but it still looks like stacked rocks to me. Stamped the wreath in two leaves in two greens, added green sponging then added the stamped sentiment and butterfly in black. Colored the butterfly with Copics. Made the heart tag in black with a heat embossed white heart. Added twine, glued in several place to give it motion on the top layer that has a die cut shape and more twig stamping with green sponging. All is mounted on white cs base.

This is for the Sentiment+More than two layers+ Embossing line of Tic-Tac-Toe at Cuttlebug Mania.
