Pink Paislee – Travel Themed Cards

Hello crafty friends. How about a couple travel themed cards today with gorgeous embellishments from the Horizon collection? I enjoyed creating them very much – so many fun bits and pieces to layer.

Both cards feature the same layering technique, where I combined elements of different thickness and texture.

For the first card, I trimmed a striped paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad to measure 4×5.25‚ÄĚ and used it as my base. I then added a smaller piece of pink patterned paper which created separation from the background, allowing me to use more patterns on top without becoming too overwhelming. This is a general rule for me when layering elements: pattern-solid-pattern and so on. It seems to be working well most of the time ūüėČ I added the beautiful ready-to-use stitched tag, a chipboard frame, and a fussy cut piece from the cut-apart sheet. I finished the card with sentiments and a globe paper clip.

The second card follows the same design. Here instead of using pink patterned paper, I used a blue one and also added two strips to create a partial frame. Next a blue floral stitched tag and the super fun luggage chipboard sticker. I layered another tag behind it, two flower stickers, and the colorful bird.

I love how these travel cards turned out. It is amazing how much you can do with the gorgeous embellishments included in the Horizon collection.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Technique Tuesday – Spring Layout

Hello, everyone. I’m very excited to share my new layout with you today. It features a super cute stamp set by¬†Technique Tuesday called¬†Growing Garden, which also comes with coordinating dies. The dainty images in this set are adorable and perfect for spring projects; not only cards and tags, but also scrapbook layouts.

I started by stamping several of the designs multiple times on smooth white cardstock; I then used alcohol markers to color them. I love how pretty and delicate they look! The coordinating dies are a must-have if you, like me, want to give dimension to your projects. One of my favorite techniques is layering, so having die cuts to create clusters with is essential.

For my background, I backed a lovely sunflowers cut file with papers from the Carta Bella Flower Market collection, which was perfect for the spring theme of the page.

Once that was ready, I matted the photo with patterned paper and placed it towards the top left side of the page. I created a border with a paper punch from my stash and tucked it under the wood grain paper, just to give it a more finished look. I then added all the stamped images I had previously prepared.

As you can see, I mixed flowers, foliage, the cute little ladybugs and butterflies, watering can and gardening tools. I had so much fun!

Last but not least, I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. They are very generic sentiments, so versatile and perfect for a variety of themes.

Enamel dots in coordinating colors finished the page.

Isn’t the¬†Growing Garden Stamp Set¬†the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? Check out the Technique Tuesday store for this new release and many other lovely stamp sets.
