Good evening fellow crafters! I hope everyone had a great Easter Weekend. It felt very weird celebrating Easter in March! Can you believe it is already April? All this time flying by is making me nervous, pretty soon the kids will be out for summer vacation, and then before we know it, another year will be gone. It is insane. I sure hope everyone has had a great start to their week so far! It has been a while since I last posted any projects, so today I wanted to share something I made for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge.
This week the video tutorial is from Dawn McVey, and the challenge is to make a project using Collage Elements. I love this idea, such a great way to create a card without having to use too many embellishments. I made a Birthday Card Set.
I started off by using Stampin' Up's In-Colors for 2011-2013. I used all 5 colors of cardstock for my card bases: Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, and Pool Party. I layered all of my collage elements onto a piece of Kraft cardstock. I used Hero Arts Solid Dots Pattern cling stamp for my background and stamped that in Crumb Cake ink. I then used a script cling stamp from Recollections and stamped that in Chocolate chip ink. I used Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Butterflies Stamp set to stamp all the butterflies using the 5 ink colors to match the cardstock. I used the PTI Wonderful Words birthday stamp set and die to create the "birthday" for the front of the card, which I also stamped with the in-color inks. The "Happy" on the front of the card is from the PTI Stylish Sentiments: Birthday Stamp set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. The inside of each card includes a sentiment from the same birthday stamp set and is stamped in a matching ink color.
I love creating Card sets, I think this one came out very nice, I love the butterflies. Hopefully I get to participate again this week if I am able to find more time! Thanks for stopping by, have a great night!
