RG Celebra’tions Shaker Card

From time to time I like to make cards without using any stamping. I rely on paper, die cuts, and some embellishments to create. The project that I am sharing today is a shaker card and I made it using just a few products from the Celebrations Collection by Richard Garay 🙂

To create this card I used a pretty patterned paper from the Celebra’tions Special Occasion 12 x 12 Prints. I also used the Pierced Hearts Die set to create the window, and the All You Die set to create the big sentiment.

Additionally, I used products by Fun Stampers Journey: Oatmeal Cookie cardstock, Hazelnut Blend cardstock, and Pink World Journey Sequins.

Besides all those fabulous products, I complemented my creation with regular white foam, gold sequins  and letter stickers that I bought at my local craft store.

Here are the steps to create this card:

1. Create a base card from Oatmeal Cookie cardstok.
2. Create a rectangular panel from patterned paper and from foam. Die cut heart shaped window on both.
3. Adhere foam panel over card base and place sequins inside the window.  Adhere a piece  of acetate over window.  Adhere patterned paper over foam panel.
4. Adhere a cardstock strip over card. Adhere letter stickers to make the word “mom”.
5. Die cut words from metallic yardstick and foam. Layer and adhere over card. Embellish with some sequins.

RG Make Amazing Happen Mini Album

Mini-albums always come handy when it is necessary to keep up with all the pictures that have started piling up on your desk. Today I am sharing a mini album that I made using products from the Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay.

Last year, I became a U.S. citizen, and even though I only took a few pictures with my phone that day, I thought it was important to some how preserve this event.  To do so, I created a mini album that consists of cover, back page and four interior pages. All of them have a clearview sheet as a base. The four interior pages have a Note Pocket that holds a picture. Here is a graphic that shows how they  were layered:

Each of the pages have a title, embellishments, short sentiments and details about that day. I thought it was going to be fun to be able to grab the pictures and see the hidden elements. Finally, I bound the album using eyelets and hemp cord.

Today’s Card: Thinking of You

Hi, I just wanted to share a card that I created with MMH of April. Unfortunately this product is  Sold Out, but if you bought it, here is another card idea…

The featured watercolors by Daniel Smith are currently available at the HA store. I have to say that these watercolors are high quality, and the variety of colors is amazing.  You can check them out >>>HERE<<<

040116web_thinkingofyou2

I created the plaid  background of my card using a foam stamp that I created like I showed in this >>>HA video <<< The images were stamped with Black Intense Ink over the background as well as over watercolor paper. I cut out the flowers, and layered them over the background panel.

The sentiment was white-embossed over black card stock, and at the end I adhered a few gemstones and pearls.

Hero Arts Summer Catalogs Sneak Peeks

Today’s sneak peeks are all about adventure. Among the new products included in the 2016 Summer Catalog, there are many fun stamps that are just perfect to create greeting cards or document your journeys…

041116web_advenbegins

The card that I created for today features a clear set called The Adventure Begins, which I love because includes different fun images and sentiments. To create this card, I began by stamping  a woodgrain background over a card base (Foliage Mix Layering Papers) with Moss Hybrid Ink. Then, on a piece of Snow Layering Paper, I stamped the tent along with the sentiment with Black Intense Ink, and the pines with Moss Hybrid Ink.

Additionally, I stamped the tent over a piece of red card stock, and I trimmed the image with scissors. After that, I adhered the piece over the panel.  I matted the panel and adhered it over the card base. Finally, I embellished the card with gemstones and hemp.

Hero Arts Summer Catalog Sneak peeks

All the new Paper Layering products by Hero Arts are simply fabulous. Today we are sharing sneak peeks of some of those products that are included in the new 2016 Summer Catalog.

041116web_grateful

My card features the Paper Layering Daisy with Frame. The daisy itself is a pop-up die, that gives the paper a 3-D effect.  I have to say that I really love the frame part. This one allows you to create an independent shape if you need to. This way,  you have the freedom of placing the flower anywhere you want. I  think this daisy is just perfect for a scrapbook page 😉

041116web_grateful2

For this card I used Sunshine Mix Layering Paper and I  layered the flower as follows: frame + daisy w/frame + daisy w/frame. I colored  the center of the flower with ink and a sponge dauber and then, I layered the three shapes.  To create the background I used Foliage Mix Layering Paper, the Bold Daisy Stencil, ink and a sponge dauber. The sentiment Grateful was gold-embossed , and at the end I added some gemstones and pearls.
