Club Scrap Blog Hop With Garden Shed Kit

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Garden Shed Blog Hop from Club Scrap. First things first, if you came from Anne Marie's Blog you came from the right place.  If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap's Blog.

For my card I started with the stamps from the Jumbo Unmounted Set. Using India Ink from Club Scrap I stamped my image. I used distress ink on an acrylic block and a waterbrush to gently apply some color. Once dry I used distress ink and inked the edges. My background was created using Color Burst on the light green patterned paper. Once dry I layered the papers. For the sentiment I embossed it on a scrap of the paper I created with the color burst. Last I made a flower using Elizabeth Craft Design dies (I used Prills for the center of the flower).

Thanks for stopping by.  Now to continue the fun head on over to Lisa's Blog.

Club Scrap September Artist Team Challenge Garden Shed Kit

Hi Everyone,

Today it's the Artist Team Challenge with Club Scrap. The challenge this month is to use wooden elements on your projects. 

Now first things first if you came from Lisa's blog then you've come from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen at Club Scrap.

All product is from the Garden Shed Kit unless otherwise stated. Be sure to grab yours now.

For my first card I used the beautiful patterned paper. I stamped the word happiness on the wooden floral and attached it to my card with two brads. The brads are from stash.  Finished card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.

For my next card I decided to think outside of the box. I used an actual thin branch. Using the Curvy Leaves die from Elizabeth Craft Designs and plain cardstock from Garden Shed kit i layered the leaves to the branch. Finished card measures 6x6 folded. 

For my next card I altered the Wood Plant Stakes that comes with the Garden Shed Kit. I painted it with acrylic paint.  Once dry I used distress ink to give it a rustic look. With the stencil also from the kit I inked the word Love.  I tied all 3 gorgeous ribbons from the kit to altered stake. Truth be told I couldn't decide which one to use so I used them all. The snail is from the cutapart. The butterfly was stamped using India ink from Club Scrap and on the soft Green patterned paper. I cut out the butterfly and added some glue to the center and placed on the card. Added some sequins from my stash. Finished card measures 6x6 folded. 

Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is Roni's blog.

Club Scrap Garden Shed Kit with Mojo Monday Sketch 464 Challenge

Happy Sunday Everyone,

Sometimes it happens, we get a creative block.  Using sketches and/or challenges helps to get our creative juices flowing.

Today I am showing you a card using the Garden Shed Kit from Club Scrap which is inspired from the Sketch 464 by Mojo Monday.  A challenge especially using a sketch is suggestive and doesn't mean you have to copy it exactly as the sketch.  For the sketch below I chose to turn it 90 degrees clockwise and I dropped the diamond.

My card is using the new kit from Club Scrap - Garden Shed Kit.  The green drops are from Nuvo Crystal Drops.

TFL! Be sure to mark your calendar for September 23rd for the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop!

Garden Shed Digital Kit from Club Scrap

Hi Everyone,

Has this ever happened to you?  You walk into work and find out it's your coworkers birthday and you are empty handed. All your scrapbook supplies are at home,  what do you do…. Luckily Club Scrap has a monthly digital kit. I just went into my account and downloaded the digital kit. I printed some designs on cardstock. Used an exacto blade and layered the cut designs on cardstock. The Garden Shed digital kit saved me. TFL! Be sure to come back for more upcoming Garden Shed projects.

Club Scrap August Blog Hop And Linky Party with Sunflowers Kit

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to another Club Scrap Blog Hop and Linky Party. This months kit Sunflowers is so vibrant and cheery. If you haven't already received it be sure to order it now.

Now first things first if you came from Esther's blog then you came from the right place.  If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen from the Club Scrap blog.

All product is from Club Scrap Sunflower Kit unless otherwise stated.

For my first card I used the patterned paper for the background.  The checkered strips and center is from the cut-a-part.  I handmade my sunflower using Elizabeth Craft Designs die Garden Notes - Sunflower.  I used some pan pastels for some shading.  Finished card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.

For my second card I used the 12x12 patterned paper for the base of the card.  I used a cut-a-part and matted with plain cardstock.  I used the gorgeous green ribbon and snipped the ends.  I topped it off with the flower wood button and colored it with Promarkers.  Finished card is 6x6 folded.

For my third card I first prepared a piece of watercolor paper (4 1/4x5 1/2) with 2 colors of distress ink using clarity brushes.  Distress ink colors are Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.  Next I stamped the image from the Sunflowers Jumbo Unmounted Stamps with India Ink on prepared watercolor paper. I then colored the sunflower with a waterbrush & distress inks.  Using a paint brush with water I blended the dry application of distress inks on the outside of the image (the border).  Once dry I cut the watercolor paper edges to measure 3 1/2x4 3/4. I used a 8 1/2x11 patterned paper for the base.  Last I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops for some accents.

And last I wanted to show another card I made using the Sunflower Digital Kit.  The digital kit is a great way to play while waiting for the paper kit to arrive.  I printed a background pattern and the sunflower image on cardstock.  I colored the sunflower with Promarkers.  For the shading I used Distress ink with the foam applicator.  The green patterned paper is from the Enchanted Forest Remix Collection Kit.

Thank you for stopping by.  Now it's time to head on over to Lisa's Blog to continue the Hop.

So Suzy Stamps August Stamp of the Month Club

Hi Everyone,

Today I am showing you how versatile the August Stamp is with previous stamps from So Suzy Stamps Stamp of the Month Club.

The quote is "May your anchor be tight, your cork be loose, your rum be spiced and your compass be true.

Finished card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

Before stamping my image I die cut an oval circle.  I placed a white cardstock underneath.  Using my clarity brush and distress ink I went around and around the oval giving the cardstock some depth but also a soft look.  I stamped the February Stamp on top and then matted it with patterned paper.  The patterned papers are from Echo Park 6x6 Reflections & Scoot.  

The sentiment is embossed with nuvo embossing powder black on plain cardstock. 

TFL! See you soon!
