After a long break… May 30, 2013

I am back to the world of blogging. Life certainly took over for a while, and I was down to minimal crafting during that time – you know, just what I needed when I needed it. However, on the bright side, I did get some different types of crafting done than just papercrafts. I forgot to get a photograph of it, but I did knit a shawl as a gift (what a lot of fun to dig out the knitting needles once again!), and I also did some vinyl gifts as well as some sewing.

However, here is my latest creation, an anniversary card. It’s done in bright colors, and it features a silhouette digital image by Karber.


For this card, I printed out the image onto Hammermill white cardstock.  The background of the image was done using a sponge applicator and Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry, and Peacock Feathers.  I chose the bright colors to coordinate with the background cardstock, which is from a die-cut cardmaking pad by K&Company called Sweet Nectar.  Now why I’ve been holding on to these pieces of die cut cardstock, I couldn’t tell you… but I’ve had them for at least a year, and I’ve finally used them in a couple cards – one I made for my niece Emma, and this one.   These pieces of cardstock are double-sided, and they beautifully combine designs – something I have a hard time doing!  The black frame was made with the Spellbinders Card Creator dies, A2 Matting Basics A and black textured cardstock from my stash.  I used two different sized dies to create the frame.  The embellishment was created using some scrap white cardstock.  These stamps I used for the embellishment were designed by Cindy Echtinaw.  I used Cindy Echtinaw Designs‘ Words & Typewriter set and the Fancy Rounds 1 set to create the embellishment.  After I stamped them onto the cardstock, I punched it out with a 1 1/4″ scalloped circle punch, and then covered it with Glossy Accents.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:

For November’s first challenge with TTCRD, we are proud to announce that Karber is sponsoring our challenge.

For this card, I used a beautiful silhouette image from Karber.  The designer paper is DCWV’s Sweet Chocolate Frosting Glitter cardstock, and the image is matted on brown Reflections cardstock.  For the colorful background, I used the Tim Holtz Fall Limited Edition distress inks in Seedless Preserves, Ripe Persimmon, and Gathered Twigs; they are applied with the foam applicator.  The metal leaves and beads are from Blue Moon, and I purchased them at Michaels.

Karber carries a variety of different digital images, many of them are whimsical and perfect for using Copic markers with since they have plenty of wide open spaces.  Be sure to check them out!  And as always, make sure to check out the Through the Craftroom Door site here.
