AHSC #170

I’m back with another card for Atlantic Hearts! After three terms I’ve decided not to reapply as a design team member for AHSC so today is my last posting for Atlantic Hearts. I am so grateful to Michelle for allowing me to be part of her team for the past 18 months! I’ve learned so much and had a lot of fun with her sketches! So before I get to my card I want to say a big thank you to Michelle & all the gals at AHSC!!

For my card today I used a white card base with a white panel cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Die. I then used a Tim Holtz die and cut this teal, glittery piece of fun foam. This stuff is amazing! I found it by accident at Wal-Mart. It cuts in a Big Shot like a dream and the glitter doesn’t flake off! Did I mention it’s adhesive backed?!?

I also cut the “Thank You” sentiment from a Heidi Swapp die 3 times and layered them to create dimension. I also covered the sentiment with Liquid Glass to add a little more shimmer to the card. I added black & white polka dot washi and splatter of Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine. This card came together quickly & I’m happy with the end result!!

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

AHSC #168

For my card I used a white cardstock base and then cut a white panel using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Die. I then used a Heidi Swapp sunray stencil and Mustard Seed Distress Ink to create a sunburst on the panel. Next I mixed white modeling paste with retired CTMH Sky Re-inker. I wanted to create a sky scene so I scraped the colored modeling paste along a cloud stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop on a scrap piece of cardstock. Once it was dry I fussy cut out the clouds and then scattered them around the panel. I used Thin 3D Foam Tape for a little added dimension. I absolutely LOVE the texture of the clouds! I used a sentiment from the CTMH Sunshine on a Cloudy Day Stamp Set in CTMH Black Ink and I finished the card by adding a scattering of mini pearls.

AHSC #166

I’m back again with another sketch from Atlantic Hearts.

AHSC #166

For my card this week I used white cardstock to create a top folding card base. I then literally used scraps that I had laying on my desk from a previous project. The yellow polka dot patterned piece has been sitting in my stash of papers for so long that I cannot remember the label!! I cut it on a diagonal and tucked a torn piece of CTMH Georgie Patterned Paper underneath the yellow paper. For my focal image I cut the word “happy” from a Big Picture Classes die on CTMH Thistle Cardstock three times. I then layered the words on top of each other to create some dimension. I then stamped the word “birthday” using a retired stamp set from CTMH in CTMH Thistle Exclusive Ink®. I also scattered purple sparkles around the sentiment. I cut a few speech bubbles using a Mama Elephant die and layered them over the yellow polka dots. I also used a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die around the border. This gives a little more detail & depth to the card.

Now I hope you’ll head over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to enter your papercrafting project based off Sketch #166.

AHSC #164

I’m back again with another card for Atlantic Hearts. I have a baby shower coming up and I know the new trend is to bring a children’s book instead of a card, but how can a card maker not bring a card?! So I’m bringing both a children’s book and a card!

I used a white cardstock base and layered a piece of vellum slightly smaller than the card base. I had originally intended to use a layer of Georgie Patterned Paper but it was just too dark & distracting under the vellum. I then added a layer of pleated ribbon from Making Memories Passport Collection and also a thin strip of gold washi from Little B. I then cut a heart from the Tim Holtz Scribbles & Splats Die on yellow cardstock. I wanted to back the heart to help it stand out from the card so I grabbed a scrap piece of white cardstock and using Scattered Straw Distress Ink to lightly color the cardstock. I then added a few splatters of Heidi Swapp Black Color Shine.
