Club Scrap June Artist Team Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Club Scrap's June Artist Team Challenge. This month the Artist Team was challenged to create using one layer. This was my hardest challenge yet but I have to admit I love how it took me out of my comfort zone and helped me create the beauties below. Before we start let's take care of some business. If you came from Roni's Blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen from Club Scrap's Blog.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

For this card I used the Pattern Play Grey Cardstock for the base of my card. I used the Twin Tags Circles Stencil with Club Scrap Onyx ink, then I slightly offset and used the Club Scrap Peridot Ink. I used the Club Scrap Pigment White Ink to stamp with Pattern Play Stamps. I love what the white ink did to the dots underneath.

I used the 8 1/2" x 11" plain white cardstock from Paris Flea Market for the base of my card. I masked the bottom edge 1" to keep it clean. Using Oxide Inks and a Blending Tool I inked directly to cardstock. I spritzed some water and let dry. I used the gorgeous bicycle stamp from the Paris Flea Market collection using Club Scrap India Ink. The sentiment is from the Bouquet Stamps and also stamped with India Ink.

For this card I used the 12x12 Cherry Blossoms patterned paper for the base of my card. The beauty of the Oxide Inks is that you can ink on a darker cardstock and the colors shows amazing in real life. I used the Wild Rose Stencil with the Oxide Ink. The top layer is the Club Scrap India In. The sentiment is from the Dahlia collection.

For my last card I used the Pattern Play Grey Cardstock for the base of my card. Once again I used the Wild Rose Stencil but this time creating different colored flowers. The sentiment is from the Color Me Happy collection.



Now head on over to Lisa's Blog to continue the awesome inspiration of one layer projects.

Club Scrap Adirondacks Kit Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another Club Scrap Blog Hop and Linky Party. This months kit is Adirondacks. First things first if you came from Lisa's Blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog. Here are the cards I created.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

This card is all about the stamps. I colored plain cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks and once it was dry I used the Walnut Stain Distress Oxide to stamp using the Adirondacks stamps. See below for the background I created. I trimmed it 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered to front of card. The base of card and sentiment banner is using plain cardstock from the kit. The sentiment is also from the kit.



Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

For this card I used a patterned paper for the base of card. I decided to make a shaker card and used the duck on the patterned paper to be the focus of the card. To create the shaker card I used fun foam with double sided tape on both sides. Make sure you use a metal sheet when diecutting as this makes it easier to cut. I covered the top circle border with the same paper used for the base of card. My background was created using a bone folder to create lines and running distress inks directly from the pad. I used walnut stain, vintage photo and iced spruce. This creates a wood panel background. I topped it of with a paper bow.

I created another another shaker card but this time using Tuile. It works well as is less thick than the standard shaker cards. The word journey is from the cut-a-part which is in the inside of the card. I diecut the butterfly with plain paper from the kit. I cut two strips of ribbon to adhere on the left and right edges between the two papers.


I hope you enjoyed the manly cards I created which are perfect for father's day which is just around the corners. Now head on over to Julie's Blog to see what she has in store for you.
