Hello Pink Paislee friends! Today I am sharing two simple cards featuring the super fun and colorful Pink Paislee Wild Child collection. I really wanted to showcase the retro vibes of this new line, with its bold patterns and color palette, but also focus on the boy and girl themes separately.
For the first card, I used papers from the 6×6 paper pad to create a nested look. I started with a 5.5” square card base and reduced each subsequent layer by 0.5”. I popped the last layer up with a piece of foam to give the card some dimension. Then I fussy cut several flowers and placed them all around the ephemera piece that sits in the middle of the card. I love how the layering adds interest to an otherwise simple design.
My second card features some of the fun icons included in the collection. I fussy cut three rockets out of Paper 09 and layered them towards the left side of the card. I then added a planet from the ephemera pack and rub-on stars all the way around. I love rub-ons! I can’t wait to use more on my next projects! For the title, I used one of the chipboard phrase stickers included in the Explorer set, which also features colorful chipboard stars, perfect to add the final touch to your layouts or cards. Some stitching completed the card.
I hope I have inspired you today to use the new Wild Child collection to create fun and colorful cards!
Thank you for stopping by!
Hello everyone! Enza here and today I am sharing two sympathy cards featuring the gorgeous Turn The Page collection by Paige Evans. I absolutely love this collection! The colors, the patterns, and the encouraging sentiments make it fun and versatile.
For my first card, I decided to use a teardrop die to create a big flower.
To achieve a layered look, I cut the petals several times in different sizes and adhered them one on top of the other, making sure the bottom layer peeked through. I love the extra detail of the faux-stitched border on each piece! It adds a different texture and draws the eye to the sentiment. For the center of the flower, I used one of the unique paper clips that come in the collection, which I backed with a scalloped journaling tag for a more complete look. The sentiment on it was perfect for this card.
For my second card, I decided to go for a soft, more sophisticated look.
I used an intricate die to create my background. I cut it out of white cardstock and adhered it on the same color card stock to achieve lots of texture without being overwhelming. This is a great way to bring subtle but still noticeable details into your projects.
Once my background was ready, I layered a few ephemera pieces from the Turn The Page collection towards the left side of the card. I fussy cut the sentiment out of one of the patterned papers and placed it on top of a floral frame, which I used vertically to mimic the shape of the sentiment. Foam dots were used to adhere everything down for lots of dimension. I completed the card with a floral embellishment and some heart-shaped sequins.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you felt inspired to create some sympathy cards with this amazing collection.
Hello friends! Vacation week continues on the Pink Paislee blog with more inspiring projects. Today I’ll be sharing two cards featuring the new gorgeous Summer Lights collection.
My first card was inspired by warm breezy summer days. I used patterned papers from the 6×6 paper pad which has smaller designs, perfect for card-making. In order to achieve lots of dimension and give the card a more realistic look, I layered the same cut file twice. By adhering together only the bottom portion, I was able to recreate the natural movement of the flowers.
I wanted to keep the rest pretty simple. I added some yellow twine under the “Hello” chipboard sticker to bring some of that color on the left side of the card and finished it with a couple of holographic clouds from the collection.
For my second card, I decided to go with sun rays. Again, by layering cut files I was able to create depth and dimension. This time I outlined the original cut file to create a border. The stitching was added as an extra layering element.
The heart chipboard sticker worked perfectly as my ‘sun’.
I finished the card with some twine – I wrapped it around the spine of the card twice and tied little bows in different colors to it.
I hope these cards have inspired you today. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration from the Design Team! Have a lovely day!
