Contrast and Layering – With You!

July 15, 2017

Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet card to remind someone special that you’re always with them, even when you’re apart.

To get the best look with your A Way With Words dies you want good contrast between the letters and the background. I thought it would be fun to use the ModaScrap Flower Lace 2 as a background with a different colour behind it, but that creates a far too complicated pattern and the words disappear. We need more contrast! There are a number of ways to work around this problem, but here is the one I chose.

Follow along with me to see how you can make this card!

Wishing You a Happy Happy Happy Birthday!

July 10, 2017

 

Hey Everyone! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Happy Happy Birthday Card. The starting point for my card was the fabulous Kites die from Joset Designs. Using the kite die, and combining it with a variety of die cut images from Els van de Burgt Studio and some ModaScrap patterned paper, my Happy Happy Happy Birthday Card grew from there. Let me show you below how to make it at home.

Miss You – Garden Notes Dahlia Card

June 27, 2017

“My heart never knew loneliness… until you went away…”

Dear Friends,

In this age of faster communications, the Internet, messaging apps and social media platforms, it is easy to be connected to the people we love. But the fact remains that showing emotions has always been difficult, even with all of these new modes of communication.

Today I bring to you a lovely hand-crafted card that is a unique way to send a heartfelt message.

I have used the dahlia flower as the central theme. The dahlia is a symbol of inner strength, creativity and standing strong in your sacred values. Dahlia flowers also symbolize a commitment and bond that lasts forever, just like the bond of friendship with the one for whom you are creating this special project.

Flower Cards: I Love Fussy Cutting

June 25, 2017


By Judi Kauffman

I admit it: I love ‘fussy cutting’! I know it’s not everybody’s favorite activity, but I really like sitting down with a pair of fine point scissors to cut around complicated shapes even when I have dies that would do the job and significantly reduce the time it takes to do a project. Dies leave a bit of a halo around the shapes, fussy cutting goes right up to the outlines. Yes, I do like to hand-hem what I sew, too. And I hand-baste rather than using pins when I sew a seam on the machine. I think it’s the slow pace that appeals to me, along with the hands-on aspect.

Today’s projects include stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting for the flowers, but I did include some die cutting for the Shimmer Sheetz branches, tag reinforcement and corners, the tag itself, and the Garden Fairies on the bonus card.
