Well, I think I am close to calling my craft room settled. It feels so wonderful to have what I had been missing for a whole 7 weeks. I never thought 7 weeks would feel so long. But at last! My craft room is here and put together minus a few minor details so I am a day away from starting to make cards again.
What a feeling!
Back to what I wanted to send you for today. We have another great selection of beautiful cards and instructions to share with you so let's begin now:
The stitching pattern is from Anne's paper art, and the 3D is one of Quincy's. Stitched on white card and layered on to Green card stock A peel off coloured with marker pen to finish
Kris is explaining her card as follows:
I covered a piece of card stock with metallic-looking contact paper, then wrapped a piece
of red duct tape around the middle. I used a tag template for the background of your
3d element, then cut the head off a screw and glued it with a washer to attach it to the
card. the square pieces in the corners are stick-ones.
Coralie gave us this description for her card:
"For this card, I used a A4 piece of cardstock that I Folded in Half to get an A5.
I glued an A5 part o pearlescent red paper on the front of the card.
I searched for a "Che Guevara Image on google and found this one: http://pagesperso-orange.fr/pochoirs/pochoirs%20divers%202/che%20guevara.jpg Which is perfect to make an iris folded pattern with.
You have two solution to use the image then : directly print it on the front of your cardstock or use translucent paper or carbon paper to transfer it on the back of your card (I personnaly use the second solution).
Then you carefully cut the dark pieces of the pattern to get your image ready.
After that, I looked at all my Iris folding patterns and found one which matched my current pattern (a vase if i remember well). It helped me to put the pieces of paper in the back of the card.
I used black glittery paper and as it is quite difficult to find, I cut slices of it instead of folding them (I save half of the amount of paper doing that).
I used a "Bon anniversaire peel off and some corner peel offs I colored in black to finish the card... Et voilà!"
Thelma is saying this about her card:
The cats are a 3D sheet made by our wonderfully talented Nikky. I loved the blue with brown color theme so followed up with cardstock from an “Old World Mat Stack” I purchased at Jo Anns Fabrics. It is wonderful cardstock for embroidery. The stitching pattern is from Anns Paper Art. The little blue heart gems are for fingernail art I found at Target in their dollar aisle. The “Thinking of You” stickers are from Stampendous.
Kathy (Iowa) sent this description:
I love this card that I made for my oldest granddaughter. I used a pattern posted by a member of the CoC forum, which unfortunately was hacked in the fall so pattern is no longer there. It was from the Iris Folding section but as it has no iris should probably be called fancy folding. I used purple (granddaughter's favorite color) ribbon which made the "folding" easier. Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder was used on the background and then all mounted on purple card.
The boy topper card
white square card (about 14 x 14)
Yellow plaid paper, glitter peel offs
Layer the plaid papers card leaving a small in white border.
Cover a piece of card yellow plaid paper.
I used one of Nikky's decoupage images and used a happy birthday peel off.
This card was made for one of my grandson's.
Wendy sent her cards with this description:
I started with a cream/lemon card stock making a easel card using a template from donpenns photobucket.
I then found a cross stitch pattern that I had stitched many years ago and with a little time spent I adapted it for use on this card with beads.To finish it off I used a sentiment as the 'prop' for the opening.
Hannah, here is her card:
This is a card for the fellas,I am always looking for a mans card and this is my own design,I used brown card and cut it to resemble a wallet,there's a slightly smaller section glued to the main section with some slits in it where I laminated a verse the size of a credit card and also one (unlaminated to be able to write a msg on).There' a small tag attatched and used to close the wallet using velcro.To personalise the wallet I use peeloffs which I put on the front as initials.
Cynthia has attached her Wedding congratulations card and instructions:
The background cardstock is a dark pink with a fleur de lis punch in each corner. The edges are outline with a silver chainlink peeloff sticker. The center is three circles of different sizes of grey, purple and pink cut with scalloped scissors and stacked on top of each other. The center medallion is a teabag fold with a purple star in the center.
Have a great week everyone! Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment, which are always so appreciated.
