Happy Monday! I had some time in my crafty space the past couple of days to make a few cards. Today I have TWO! Amazing that! WooHoo! The first card uses VLV June Week 2 Sketch by Tosh! I knew when I saw this one I just had to jump in when I got a chance. I just love layering. Great sketch!
For this card I am using Verve's Let Your Light Shine stamp set. I played around with some more corrugated cardboard, a silver doily, and some glitter! Love the tonal effect with all the textures and patterns.
The second card is supposed to be CAS. I am using Janelle's VLV June Week 3 Sketch which is CAS! I must tell you now that when I started the card it was CAS....then (*signing* here) the crafting muses took over and I looked at the card when they were done and went, huh? ;) That is my story and I am sticking to it. CAS or no I could not rip it apart and start over. LOL! Great sketch, Janelle! I do apologize for torturing the CAS out of it!
For this card I used Verve's Text Objects for a soft kraft on kraft scripty background touch, I used Seeing Stars for the focal sentiment and a few stars. I also combined sentiments or images from Dude and Super Dad. I used Verve's Cut Above Ribbon Banner die for the focal image sentiment. I cut two...one in vintage cream and the other in kraft for a touch of layer at the tip of the ribbon banner.
Lately, I have been playing around with textures from fabrics, metals, plastics, and cardboard. A few weeks ago I posted a card using some Aida Cloth. When I made this card, I wanted to add some textures so I decided to use the Aida Cloth again which gets sort of flimsy and frayed when die cut. A good thing, but it needs a card stock backing at times if the die cut is really dainty. When I die cut these stars out, I put the aida cloth on top of the vintage cream when I ran it through my Vagabond. The results was the embossed vintage cream card stock with the aida cloth texture. LOVE IT! What a fun surprise! I decided to add two...one small and one large to these layered stars for more fun! If you look at the close up picture, you can see the aida cloth on top with the aida cloth embossed one underneath sandwiched between corrugated bottom layer. So cool! Just had to share! What items have you added to your die cut layers that created textured patterns? Please share!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
