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.

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.
