There's so much to love about the January "Color Me Happy" kit from Club Scrap. The patterned papers are divine, and the stamps and embellishments do not disappoint.
Other than the magic of Stickles on the dragonfly wings, nothing else about this card was difficult. After cutting a circle of the patterned paper to go on top of the turquoise card base, I cut out a layer of the detail from the paper and attached it about 3/4 of the way down the card to ground the dragonflies. The last thing I did was stamp the sentiment at the bottom of the card. (And if I make a card like this again, I'll plan it a little better. The bottom of the "y" in "birthday" didn't stamp well and had to be hand lettered to fix the boo-boo.)
This is a card that will be hoarded until just the right person comes along!
This 4.5" square thank you card features my first attempt with the Yupo paper. I had my spray dyes going and didn't want all the colors muddying together, so I got out my trusty heat tool to help speed up the drying time.
Everything was good until I got too close to the paper and then BLAMO! The paper started curling up like a roly-poly bug - otherwise known as a pill bug, and are, by the way, actually related to shrimp and crayfish. Something tells me that wouldn't taste the same! - in a child's sandbox. Yeah, what you see here is probably the best pieces left after that little incident.
I heat embossed the sentiment that came in the kit and added ribbon and a skeleton leaf from my stash.
This paper is really gorgeous. It has all the shades of denim with pewter outlines of the images. It's pretty powerful all on its own, so I kept it simple - a little ribbon, one of the bigger sentiments from the kit and some clear rhinestones from my stash.
I also rounded two of the corners to give it a more finished look.
