AHSC #142

I’m back again with another card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

#ctmh #washi #stamping #card

I started by rummaging through my stash of scrap papers and came across this black floral paper, which I think is from Basic Grey. Once I had the paper adhered to the white cardstock panel I added a couple stripes of grey washi tape from my stash. The flower comes from a long retired CTMH stamp set, Friendship Blessings. I stamped the flower image twice and then colored it using gelatos. Once I had the flower the shade I wanted I attached it to the card panel using a bitty brad. The tags at the top are from the True To Life Stamp Set, once again colored using the same gelatos, and attached using the Mini Stapler. I made sure to stamp all of the images in Archival Black Exclusive Ink™ so the ink wouldn’t run when I added the mixed media. For the final touch I added a doodled outline using a Journaling Pen around the edge of the panel.

Halloween In January?

You may remember a previous layout I shared that was inspired by the Old Favorites with a New Twist Class taught by Ashley Horton. This class is offered through Big Picture Classes and gives a fresh perspective on scrapbooking techniques of years past.  One of those techniques is shaped photos and Ashley generously offers a free hexagon cut file in the class. (You can click here to view my original blog post that includes multiple photos of the first layout I created.) In that original blog post I shared a peek of a second layout I created using the same cut file. Well I’m back today with the full layout! One of the great things about scrapbooking is you can scrapbook the photos of your choosing any time of the year…hence the Halloween layout in January! ha!

I tend to hoard my paper and all my scraps so I’m unsure of the pattern paper labels on this layout because the manufacturer strips were already removed from previous projects. I did stamp the stars on the background paper using CTMH Black Exclusive Ink™ and the Tasty Terrors Stamp Set. The embellishments were mainly from the Crate Paper-After Dark Collection and K&Company pieces that I’ve had in my stash for A LONG time! I did throw in some CTMH black enamel stars also.

Here’s a close up that shows a little more dimension of the embellishments and the machine stitching around the cut file.
