Club Scrap September Artist Team Challenge


Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps September Artist Team Challenge! This month the September challenge is to incorporate watercolor techniques into your projects by using Watercolor paints, pencils or crayons, Gelatos, dye-based inks, etc. I ended up using faber castell's Pitt artist pens, pencils, and a gelato for my flowers and apples.

You should have arrived from Debbie's blog, however if you did not , you might want to start from the beginning at Karen's Club Scrap Blog , that way you won't miss any of the Design Teams Beautiful creations today.

I LOVED making this layout using the new Orchard collection and LOVE all the beautiful design papers, cardstock and embellishment that came in this months kit. I  chose for my layout today to watercolor all flowers, and then the stamped apples and color them with pencils from faber castell. I then used the glass flower technique on all flowers and the apple image. This page was super fun and easy to create. The thing that took the longest would be handmade flowers, and even then it didn't take me long at all. My page was very simple for me as I added 2 photo matts and my embellishments. Love how the apples turned out too using this fun technique. I did add a photo to show you what the flowers look like before using the glass flower technique on them.

 In the photo above you can see how I watercolored them, and then how the look after doing the Glass flower technique on them. LOVE how the color is much deeper and bright.

Club Scrap Supplies Used:
Orchard Deluxe Club Kit
Orchard corrugated Tag
Orchard Jumbo unmounted Stamps
Orchard 12 x 12 prints
Orchard bottle caps with epoxy stickers
Ribbon and fibers that come in the deluxe kit
Orchard Embellishments Cutaparts

We make a great pear

Hello crafty friends, and Happy Thursday to you all! Today I have a fun and simple card I designed using Really Reasonable Ribbons  Beautiful August Autumn Harvest Ribbon Assortment, along with a few embellishments, & also for Club Scrap using the BEAUTIFUL new Orchard Deluxe Collection.

On my card I chose to make my a bow using 3 of the ribbons in Really Reasonable Ribbons  Augusts Ribbon kit. I also used the same ribbons for the banners in the left hand corner. The design papers and stamps I ended up using are all from Club Scraps September Orchard Kit. The Flowers I used were already cut, and colored, I just had to put them together for my card. And the centers have a 10mm pearl embellishment. Leaves were already done, so I just had to add them. Made for a fast card, as i didnt end up doing any sewing on this one, kinda shocking....hehehehe I do love how it turned out, as I love all the beautiful ribbons and design papers I chose for this one.

The sentiment was stamped using black ink, and then i distressed around the oval using an orange and light brown. The pear was stamped 2 times and cut out once, I colored it using copic markers.

The yellow layer was just distressed using scissors and ink,

Big bow was made using the Tangerine Taffeta , leaves grosgrain, and green satin, along with a sweet crystal embellishment.

All layers were put together using Really Reasonable Ribbons Scor-tape, and foam squares.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
White flat back pearls 10mm
Mixed colored rhinestone flower
Scor-Tape
3-D thin foam tabs
Ribbons-Assortment , or Green checkerboard Satin, Random Autumn Leaves Grosgrain , Tangerine Taffeta Ribbon

If not , you will want to head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog that way you don't miss out on any of the FABULOUS Designs from the Design Team today! There is going to be lots of Beautiful projects to see today using September Ribbon Assortment, so I hope you Enjoy!!!

I LOVE all the Halloween ribbons in this months assortment , and I always LOVE each month, as Bonnie puts together an AWESOME assortment! On my card for today I did use 2 of the ribbons and  in this kit. I also used RRR Foam Tabs  & 1" Scor-Tape for the layers, also used some embellishments! It was a hard choice as I wanted to use them all!
 For my card I chose to use some design papers from American Crafts, then layered with some leftover card stock, as I'm trying to use these scraps up :)

The Ribbons I chose are the checked and the sweet spider ribbon from this months assortment. Love them all, it was hard to choose what ones I wanted to use until I picked out the stamps and the kitties, then I knew! :) love when that happens. I made 2 bows, and then hot glued them to each other. The embellishments I chose are from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well, I wanted to use the glitzy Rhinestone one for the center of my bow, and then the covered buttons for the card.

The stamps used are from The project Bin stamps and came from the set called "Creepy Halloween". I just stamped them in black using the Mini Misti tool, and love how I could place them where I wanted using this, and stamping several times to get the desired look.

The kitties are from cheery Lynn Designs Dies, and I colored them with copic markers, I think they turned out pretty cute, might have to try coloring some more of these up, as I can use the practice.

I had fun designing this sweet Halloween card for todays hop!

Merry Christmoose

Hello crafty friends, and Happy Saturday to you all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend and getting your craft on :) hehehhe
Today's card is a Merry Christmoose card created using the SWEET Cheery Lynn Dies. The DARLING moose is one of the new release, and mixed with some of Cheery Lynn's other beautiful dies. I will list them all below for you. I absolutely am LOVING all the dies in this newest release, and if you havent had a chance to see them, be sure to check them out here at the Cheery Lynn Designs store.

So for this sweet card , it measures 6" x 6" and I used a white card base. Next I chose to use a kraft color card stock, along with a green for matting all the layers of design paper. The design paper I chose to use for my card today is from Recollections Winter Wonderland, its an oldie but goody :) I added some green sewing to each panel on my card.

Layering the main panel-
I used Cheery Lynn's Pierced Stacker #2 XL20 cut out the kraft card stock with this one, for the oval i used M-7 Oval Classic and cut out the coordinating design paper. For my sweet Moose I used the NEW B923 Merry Christmoose die, and cut him out all in white, then colored with different copic markers. I did add some white gel dots to his antlers, ear ,and tail.
Flowers- were cut using another design paper from this collection and cut using Cheery Lynns Poinsettia Strip, I then added some gold stamens from RRR to the centers. The greenery was done using the poinsettia strip and some of the design paper, then i used for the branches B846 Christmas Bell 7, its the branch in this set.

Merry Christmoose was colored and then i added a bit of glitter. Ribbon is Gingham from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Cheery Lynn Dies used-
Merry Christmoose
Christmas Bell 7
Poinsettia Strip
Oval Classic M7
Pierce Stacker  #2 XL20
 I really enjoyed creating this sweet card. I love making the clusters with Cheery Lynn Dies, and love how the Poinsettia's look done in a white glitter design paper.
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Autumn

Hello everyone , today I have a card I created for The Project Bin Stamps using their beautiful "New Leaf" stamp set for this sentiment. I did choose to use the Ombre effect like what Iv'e done before in one of my tutorials for stamping. You can find them here.

On my card for today I went with some old design paper I found in one of my paper trays. Love when you go shopping in your craft room and find stuff you havent used....LOL hehehehe I think I had bought these stacks at the warehouse sale for American crafts, got them for super cheap,like 1.80 for 30? sheets of the same design. crazy!

Stamping- so for the stamping I used the mini Misti tool and then some SU! markers to color my stamp and keep stamping, love how this tool allows you to do that without messing up.

Cheery Lynn Die- so i cut these out using white card stock, then colored with several copic markers to achieve this look. All dies came in this set called B901 Acorns and Leaves. LOVE this set, and will be using it again very soon.

Ribbon and embellishments are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I used the Tangerine Taffeta ribbon, and then an cabachon 

Today's card is pretty simple and easy to make. I hope you enjoyed my post! :)
Thank you so much for looking and have a lovely weekend!

Club Scrap Lagoon Blog Hop



Hello everyone and welcome to Club Scraps August blog hop featuring the New Beautiful Lagoon  Deluxe kit !  If you arrived from Jennifer's Blog then you are in the right place , if not you will want to start from the beginning at Karen(Club Scrap blog)so you don't miss any of the wonderful inspiration from the Club Scrap Artist Team! There is also a list of the entire line up there for you with links :) Have fun & I hope you enjoy todays Hop!

I love that each club scrap kit inspires me to get more of my scrapbooking done, as I was lacking on that before Club Scrap! Right now I have so many pages complete, that I'm ready to put together a nice 12 x12 album :) Love that!

For my layout today I chose to keep this one a little simple, no flowers, no ribbon, just stamping and fussy cutting for this one.  On this layout here I chose to use the seaweed from both stamp sets, and then stamped the starfish 3 times and airbrushed all of them. Love how they look on my page for today.

The photo matts were created using 1 8 1/2" x 11" design paper sheet from the deluxe Lagoon club kit, and I cut it to 5 1/2" x 5 3/4" for the big photo matt, then the 2 little ones were cut to 3" x 3 1/4". I didn't add photo's to this, as I need to print them out.

Make Waves tag/ and border along the bottom of the page were cut from the Lagoon cut-a -part sheet that came in my kit.

Seas the day. was stamped on a leftover piece I had from the design paper sheet I used for the photo matts.

The wide border on my page was leftover from the last page I made using the 12 x 12 sheet of design paper, so I thought this would make a nice border along the right side of my page.

Doily was cut using a Cheery Lynn Designs Mega Doily.

Club Scrap Supplies-
Lagoon Deluxe Kit
Lagoon Embellishment Cut a Part
Lagoon Art Nouveau unmounted stamps (for small seaweed and Seas the day.)
Lagoon Jumbo unmounted stamps (for the large seaweed, and starfish)
Card Stock (sand , and Light Teal) from the Deluxe Lagoon kit
White card stock from my stash
Black ink is India Black ink pad from club scrap
I had so much fun working with this months beautiful Deluxe Lagoon kit, as I LOVE everything about this sweet kit! I do hope you are enjoying our hop today!

I also added glitter to both tree's using stickles. My snowflake was cut using the same design paper, and just popped up using foam tabs. The sweet little penguin was cut out in white card stock 2 times and pieced together after coloring. I also added stickles to him his hat.

Club Scrap August Artist Team Challenge


Hello everyone, and welcome to Club Scraps August Artist Team Challenge! This month the August Challenge is Inspired by Pinterest’s newest feature, “Tried it”, the Artist Team challenge this month is to visit the Club Scrap Pinterest account, choose a Pin with a technique or tutorial that inspires you, then make pages, cards or other projects inspired by that Pin. Once your project is complete, click the “Tried it” icon on the Pin.

You should have arrived from Debbie's blog, however if you did not , you might want to start from the beginning at Karen's Club Scrap Blog , that way you won't miss any of the Design Teams Beautiful creations today.

So I tried 2 pins I found, I loved them both and couldn't decide between the 2 so I did both using Club Scrap Lagoon Deluxe Kit. One is the Envelope punch board Coin Envelopes by Tricia, the second pin I tried was the embossing folder leaves, but I did not use a folder, I used my score board and did the embossing that way. I had so much fun doing both these techniques, thank you Club Scrap! Both can be found here at Club Scrap on Pinterest.
The leaves I did were a light blue color that I distressed with club scraps green ink pads, I used two. Next m flowers were made using some precut die flowers I had in a baggy sitting on my work station, so I distressed them in a coordinating color. I did add club scraps pretty Teal Jewel stickers that came in the Lagoon Deluxe Club Kit., I not only used them for the centers of my flowers, but also for on the page too. Love how they look.
 Envelope was done using one of the coordinating papers from the Deluxe Lagoon kit, and then I added one of the cut aparts to add a date on the envie. Inside is another cut apart that I can add the journaling for this page.

Papers are all from the Club Scrap Deluxe Lagoon Kit, except the white backing for the teal.

Sewing was added using a blue color thread, and I also added a Cheery Lynn doily that I cut up to make it look way larger than it is.

Embellishments- came from the Deluxe Lagoon kit, and are the starfish, mini tag, and stickers.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon Diamond Satin The Photo's are from June 2016 and were taken at Woodward lake in California. Miesha met a friend and his name was Bo! hehehe they had so much fun playing in the water.


hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I truly enjoyed creating my layout for today using the the beautiful NEW Lagoon Collection! Please let me know what you think as I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!
