Cardmaking | Colour Throwdown 604 + more!


A couple of cards to share today...


First up is a slimline card inspired by Colour Throwdown.  I've stuck to the black, white and terracotta colour palette but also kept things really CAS.


I started with my stamping using my new MISTI!  Yes, that does need to be in italics, bold and underlined because it tryuly is that exciting.  No more faffing trying to stamp a tiny sentiment with my gigantic memory MISTI.  I stamped bold black stripes with an old Concord and 9th set.


My 'terracotta' is actually a Shimmerz paint called So Sappy.  I painted the edges of a panel to mat my stamped piece on and a swatch to die cut from.


The die is from Pinkfresh and I snipped and pieced together to give the appearance of a larger bouquet.
For my sentiment I pulled out a teeny tiny stamp from a StickerKitten set.  I white heat embossed it onto black and trimmed it to be a tiny tag.  For the little details I added a trio of trios in matching sequins and tied my tag to the stem of my bouquet with a pretty bow.


My second card is made with one of the recently released Skull and Cross Buns stencils.  I used it to poke holes to sew and went bonkers with my Mum's embroidery floss.  She used to do a lot of cross stitch so has a vast collection of threads in allofthecolours - which hapens to be my favourite colour!!  As she now crochets instead of cross stitch they are free for me to play with.


I pulled out a matching ink from my Pinkfresh ink cube collection and stamped You Got This from the Quirky Sentiments set from Skull and Cross Buns.


I needed to mount the sewn panel on some thin foam squares as the thred was a little bulky especially where all four threads went through the same hole.

Stick It Down


Here's my layout for Stick It Down's August single page sketch.


Here's the sketch... I have adapted it to work on an A4 layouts and flipped it to work better with my photo.

I've used the collaboration collection from Altenew and Pinkfresh Studio.  I loved the two leaf line drawing die cuts - two wasn't enough for me though, so I doodled and fussy cut a few extras!


I used a background cut file that I designed and backed it with a multicoloured paper.  I love the apricot colouring in this collection!

And lastly a layout made from start to finish...  I drew the dot mandala in procreate, designed a few other printable pieces (labels, tabs, title and patterned paper layers) printed them on our home printer and created this.


I then went through all my SpiegelMom sequin mixes and pulled out matching colours to make a custom sequin mix to embellish with.

Scrap Academy

Today in my Scrap Academy lesson I take you through journalling with mixed alphas.  I'm the first to admit that journalling is my weakest subject but there will be much more inspiration through the week.  It's a great group if you are looking to get started in scrapbooking or to expand your knowledge.  I won't talk about the lesson here in this blog post but I'll share the photos and the link...


My layout uses a fun frame cut file that I have designed along with seven fonts/alphas.


The layout tells of the frustration of a lockdown birthday and not being able to play "parcel parcel" or Pass The Parcel as we adults wrongly call it!



Here's a link to the video if you are not on Facebook: Video link https://youtu.be/O0MQ_CA3JEI   Here's the group if you are: here
