A Bunch of Cards

My mojo was working for me tonight!  Unfortunately there was no natural light when I took the pictures but you get the idea.

IMG_1710Products used: K&Company chipboard, CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH organdy ribbon, K&Company pearls.  I added details to the flower with markers and ink.  (challenge=sketch)

IMG_1708Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Cricut Accent Essentials, and button (unknown).  I added details on the flower with a marker and I used a piercing tool to add details around the scallop border. (challenge=paper piercing)

IMG_1707Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH White Daisy Just Blooms, Making Memories Chocolate paint.  I used the paint as the centers of the flowers – a great technique! (challenge=paint)

IMG_1709Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, clip and hemp (unknown).  I poked a hole through the flower to attach the clip to it with the hemp. (challenge=binding)

IMG_1711Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH White Daisy Just Blooms, DCWV vellum quote, CTMH Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, K&Company pearls. (challenge=quote)

IMG_1714Products used: DCWV textured cardstock and pattern paper, Stampin’ Up black grosgrain ribbon, CTMH Sparkles and Cranberry cardstock, button and flowers unknown. (challenge=red/black/white)

IMG_1715Products used: CTMH Boom-Di-Ada Creative Basics papers, flowers from CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH Hollyhock ricrac, acrylic frame by Fancy Pants, CTMH Say It In Style stamp set, and Hampton Art glitter glue.  The acrylic frame is actually two pieces.  I used the glitter glue to stick them together and then I attached it to my project with Liquid Glass.  Glitter glue was also used for the center of the flowers. (challenge=clear window)

These projects were all done for challenges at 365 Cards.

Monogram Titles

For a standout title, try using large monogram letters for your entire title.  I used Basic Grey undressed chipboard monograms for these layouts.  (Note: chipboard that is plain and unfinished is often called undressed, bare, or naked.)  For extra letters, you can trace on chipboard and cut them out.  Next, I traced the letters on cardstock, cut out, embellished, and glued to the chipboard.  Be sure to embellish the letters before adhering to the chipboard.  The ways to embellish these monograms are endless.  You can use buttons, brads, eyelets, snaps, rivets, charms, ribbon, fiber, clips, staples, tags, diecuts, etc.  You can also use techniques such as stamping, stitching, inking, distressing, doodling, etc.  My favorite adhesive when using chipboard is Liquid Glass by CTMH.  There is a bit of drying time involved but it will hold forever!

Acrylic Letters

I love acrylic letters but these clear embellishments can be hard to challenging at first.  This layout shows many different ways to attach acrylics without your adhesive showing…stitch them on your page, attach with brads or staples, or use glue dots and then cover it with ribbon, buttons, or other embellishments.
