Here are a few more goodies from Life Preservers April Alternate kit! The colors coordinate perfectly with our school colors so I couldn’t help but do at least one sporty page! I wanted to keep the embellishments to a minimum and let the photos speak so I added texture by using a boarder punch, and embossing my matting and stars. The Mesh Cuttlebug emboss folder reminded me of the texture of a basketball. How perfect is that!!
Non kit items: distress ink; cardboard; chain, tag; rubons; boarder punch; distress paint
With only a few small scraps left, I decided to create a couple cards. This card is for my Father-in-laws upcoming birthday/Father’s Day bash.
non kit items: cardboard; distress ink; distress paint; flourish; pearl; Core'dinations cardstock; marker; eyelets; Cuttlebug emboss folder; Nestabilities die
I created the bird by tracing the negative area of a grungeboard punchout onto a piece of cardboard from a tissue box. After cutting out the bird, I inked the edges with distress inks. Next, I applied a coat of distress paint. The moisture of the paint allowed the ink to bleed into the paint giving a shading affect. Once the paint was dry, I applied a flourish to the wing area and used a pearl for the eye.
I cut the leaves from Core’dinations Cardstock, using my Cricut and Storybook cartridge. I sanded the edges of the leaves, and rubbed a line in the center of the leaves using a Basic Grey sanding tool.
Thanks for stopping!! Have an awesome day!
