Easter Slides

Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Happy Tuesday crafty friends,

Hope you are doing well. I wanted to share a card I made a while back with some great CTMH products.
Here’s a look at the finished project. The finished size is 5 x 6.5. I started with a black cardstock base.

I then turned to the someone special stamp set and my whisper ink pad. I did a second generation stamp technique to make the flower pattern a soft and subtle background.

I then turned to another piece of white cardstock and sponged some of my Lagoon ink pad onto it.

I then used some more of my lagoon ink pad and the floral pattern stamp from the In the background stamp set

I then turned back to my someone special stamp set and used my blush ink pad to stamp the base and then the outline stamp with some of my Cranberry Ink Pad.

This photo shows all the different pieces before assembly. I did use some black cardstock and my white daisy ink pad along with the diagonal stripes stamp from the In The Background stamp set.

I used some foam tape to give the flowers a little lift.

I then turned to my Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge and cut out the black tag. I used my White Daisy Ink pad  and one of the stamp sets that the Artfully Sent cartridge has to stamp the outline. I then turned back to my someone special stamp set and my White Daisy ink pad to stamp the sentiment. I added a couple of Pearls to each side for a little extra pizazz. When assembling I did use some foam tape to give it a little lift.

Here is one last look at my completed card.
PLEASE NOTE: The pretty Someone Special Stamp Set is one of the stamps that will be expiring in just a few days!!!!

Hello crafty friends,
I recently had the chance to share this pretty mini album box set I recently created for my Pazzles Design Team Assignment.
boxed mini album cover-650
I started by creating the box. It's very easy to do. You can watch the video in the craft room that shows you how easy it is to do.

Here is the outside of one side of the box. I typeset the scripture reference and printed it out. I created and cut out the photo corners in regular white cardstock. I then used some gold embossing powder to emboss them and give them a more metallic look.

Here is the other side of the box. I typeset the prayer and once again, created the photo corners and cut them out of white cardstock. I embossed these with gold embossing powder as well. I did also use some foam tape to give the panel a little lift.

Here is a closer look at the box lid. I used a couple of flower files from the craft room for the flowers. I created the butterfly cut file and like the photo corners, I cut it out of plain white paper and then embossed them with gold embossing powder. I used some pearls and some gems for the centers of the flowers.

Here is a view of the mini album inside the box. The pages are simple accordion fold pages.

Here is just a closer view of one of the photo corners.

This is a side view of the box. I used the wrought iron decorative file from the Pazzles Craft Room and some more of the flowers.

Here is a look at the album pages.  I then used the Doilie Frame2 and the Fancy Frame files from the craft room and alternated them on the pages using white cardstock. All of the patterned paper is from the Craft Smith Painted Posies Paper Pad. Instead of using the pages for an actual album, I decided to make my pages into sections of Psalms 119 for the upcoming counting of the Omer. The pages are the right size for a great family album.
