Trio of cards, featuring Spellbinders Die D-Lites

Hello crafty friends! I am so excited to be sharing my first guest post on the Spellbinders blog.  There is more detail and instructions on how I made these cards over on their blog, so please stop by and leave me some love!  (Supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.)

Today, I’m working with some cute Die D-Lites.  The little animals are so cute, and I decided to make a few birthday cards.  I also love a good cheese burger and fries, so I made another card as well.

My favorite technique for the background has always been ink blending, so that is what I did for all three of my cards.

Magic, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hey friends!

I made a new layout using the February 2019 Hip Kit Club kits.  I used one of the March free cut files, which you can access from the website if you have an account, and I was challenged to use this week’s sketch.

I filmed a process video if you’re interested:

 

I decided to scrapbook all the Hip Kit Club DT announcements that I have been a part of.  I love being on the HKC DT so much!

I never knew, featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello Hip Kit Club friends!  Today, I’m sharing a layout that I made using some of the frames in the February 2019 kits. I documented my 3 girls wearing the same dress. I used these photos recently in my December Daily 2018 album, but I had to have a 12×12 layout for my traditional album as well. They are not triplets, lol, as some people thought when I posted my DD album page. One photo was taken in 2008, another in 2013, and my youngest in 2018.

I used bits and pieces from all the February kits, but here are some highlights. I decided to use the Pinkfresh Studio chipboard frames from the Main kit to frame my photos.

The other focus of my layout is the long quote title, and I used the Pinkfresh Studio mini puffy alpha stickers from the Project Life kit. I had enough letters for my long title, with plenty left to spare!

I also used the stencil, and a little bit of the pink paint from the Color Kit, mixed with texture paste, for some interest on my background. I used the Crate Paper heart pattern paper, exclusive to the Paper Kit, to line the left side of my layout.

Finally, I embellished my layouts with Crate Paper stickers, and Pinkfresh Studio puffy stickers from the Embellishment Kit, along with some layered hearts that I hand cut and machine stitched using the Crate Paper pattern papers.

I really hope you like my layout, and were inspired to get crafty. Don’t forget to check out the February 2019 Hip Kits!

2 sweet layouts, featuring Pinkfresh Studio’s Joyful Day

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 2 layouts I made for the Pinkfresh Studio blog using the Joyful Day collection.  The colors and the florals in this collection are stunning, and I had so much fun creating with these products.

For my first project, I made a grid layout, which is a personal favorite of mine.  I am also scrapping photos of my sister’s new corgi puppy.  Her name is Eevee, and she is so cute and feisty!

1024jungahsang_030419_01

On a sheet of white cardstock, I added some pink ink blending, and paint splatters.  For the splatter, I used some Pinkfresh Studio watercolors.  I wanted the perfect shade of blue to match the blue color in the kits, so I mixed a little bit of sky blue, sapphire, lavender, and a lot of water.  I lightly sketched a grid, then added some hand stitching.

I die cut circles from some of the pattern papers in the collection: fresh startsmall beginnings, being us, and big ideas.  I also used the Fancy Floral 1 die to create a tone-on-tone look.

1024jungahsang_030419_06

For my photos, I knew I wanted to frame them with the botanicals circle frame die.  I ended up die cutting the frame from white cardstock 6 times; I wanted each frame to be a layer of 3 frames, so that it would give a dimensional, chipboard effect.  I glued the frames to the photos.

1024jungahsang_030419_04

I arranged my circles on the grid, and once I liked how everything was played out, I started adhering the circles to the layout.

I embellished the frames with puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, one of the chipboard frames, cardstock stickers, more puffy stickersmixed embellishments and enamel dots.

1024jungahsang_030419_03

I also used the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set and coordinating dies to create my own embellishments.  The beauty of stamp sets is that you’re able to create your own embellishments in the exact color scheme you want, not to mention you can use them over and over again.

1024jungahsang_030419_05

For my title, I used a mixture of fonts; I used the puffy alpha stickers, and the multicolor mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_02

For my second layout, I used an exclusive Pinkfresh Studio cut file, called Folk Motif, which you can access in the Pinkfresh Studio Fan Group FB page.  I thought the cutfile, and the colors int the collection worked perfectly with the photos of my youngest daughter all dressed up.  Already, she loves to play dress up, and Belle seems to be her favorite princess…or maybe she just really likes the color yellow.  Either way, she is cute, cute, cute!

1024jungahsang_030419_07

I cut the Folk Motif on white cardstock, and I backed the cut file with the pattern papers in the collection: simple pleasures, being us, true story, and small beginnings.

I mounted the cut file on white cardstock.  I adhered it to the left side, and I couldn’t decide if I wanted it to hang off the edge or not.  In the end, I decided to add a bit of the pattern paper to the left side, because I didn’t want to trim any of the cut file off, and since it was hanging off the edge a tiny bit, I would’ve had to trim it.

1024jungahsang_030419_09

I backed the photos with pattern paper, then started to embellish.  Again, I stamped a few of the flowers and leaves from the Embroidered Blossoms stamps set, and used the coordinating dies to create my own floral embellishments.  I really love how this stamp set seem to coordinated really well with my backed cutfile!

1024jungahsang_030419_11

I also used puffy stickers, ephemera pieces, and enamel dots to embellish the layout.

1024jungahsang_030419_12

I added a simple little title using the mini puffy alpha stickers.

1024jungahsang_030419_10

I love how the cutfile turned out!  It makes such a big impact on my layout, and enhances the photos, rather than overpowers them.

I really love how my layouts turned out, and I hope you got some inspiration as well.  Don’t forget to check out the Joyful Day collection!

Happy Monday!

8 cards, featuring Spellbinders March 2019 Card of the Month kit

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 8 cards that I made using the Spellbinders March 2019 Card of the Month kit: Relax & Enjoy.  These kits are jam packed with everything you’d need to make a card, from card bases & envelopes, to double sided tape and foam squares.  I will also be using some kit add ons: Relax & Enjoy 6×6 paper padsentiment stickers, vellum butterfly stickers, and clear stamp set, which you can get here.

I filmed a video showing the process of some of the cards:

 

I absolutely love butterflies, and the butterfly die cut ephemera pieces from the kit, and the vellum butterfly add ons are gorgeous.

For this card, I used 3 vellum butterflies, a sentiment sticker, white yardstick, a piece of pattern paper from the paper pad, and a card base.  This card may be one of my favorites, and it was probable the quickest to put together.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 7

For this card, I used a piece of pattern paper from the paper pad, one of the 3×4 cards, the butterfly and banner die cut ephemera, and a card base.  I added some machine stitching to the banner for added texture and interest in my card.  The colors in these kits are so gorgeous!

My next set of cards are cacti and succulent themed.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 8

For this card, I used pattern paper, a 3×4 card, some of the die cut ephemera, and a card base.  I love the foiling detains in the die cut ephemera pack!

ahsang sb MarCOTM 10

For this card, I used the stamp set, and the black cardstock that came in the kits.  I stamped a background piece using the cactus stamp.  I also stamped an extra cactus, colored it with Zig clean color real brush pens, and fussy cut it.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark ink and white embossing powder on the black cardstock.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 12

For this card, I used pattern paper, a 3×4 card, sentiment stickers, the cacti and flowers metal dies, and a card base.  I die cut the pieces of the cacti from the green and mirror foiled cardstock included in the kit.  There wasn’t a pink cardstock in the kit, so I just ink blended some Picked Raspberry distress ink onto white cardstock, and die cut the flowers.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 5

My last few cards are all about relaxing.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 9

For this card, I used pattern paper, a tiny piece of the mirror foiled cardstock, die cut ephemera coffee cups, sequins, and a card base.  I love that sequins that matched the foiling details were included in the kits!

ahsang sb MarCOTM 11

For this card, I used black cardstock, a sentiment sticker, die cut ephemera, sequins, and a card base.  I added some machine stitching to this card as well.

ahsang sb MarCOTM 13

For my last card, I used pattern paper, ephemera pieces, cardstock, and some of the flowers and leaves metal dies.  I used the cardstock from the kit to cut out the flowers and leaves.

I really love how quick and easy most of these cards came together!  I love how much were included in these kits as well!

Here is an image of what was included in the kits.

MarKOM-Contents

The only things I used from my own stash was my Platinum6 die cutting machine, a circle die from the Spellbinders nestabilities standard circles, fun foam, and liquid glue.  For the stamped card, I used ink, Versamark ink, and white embossing powder from my stash.

I hope you like my cards, and I hope you check out the Spellbinders card of the month kits.  They are so much fun to play with, and are such a great value!

Happy Saturday!

 

4 cards featuring Hip Kit Club

Hello friends!  Today I’m sharing 4 handmade cards that I made using the February 2019 Hip Kits.  I used bits and pieces from all the kits: Main kit, Embellishment kit, Project Life kit, Color kit, & cardstock kit.  I love making handmade cards, so I was especially excited to dig into these kits.  There are so many goodies here that are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making.

ahsang HKC febcards 2

I made all the card bases using the cardstock from the kit.  I made them A2 sized, so folded, they measure 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.

For my first card, I made a XOXO shaker card.

ahsang HKC febcards 3

I used one of the February subscriber cut files called candy hearts, and I cut it from white cardstock.  I used the Prima opal magic paints from the color kits to color the jar and hearts.  I used some sequins (from a past kit), acetate, and foam tape to make my shaker.  I backed it with one of the pattern papers from theMain kit.  To embellish the front of the card, I used a Crate Paper shaker heart, a wood flair button and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.

For my next card, I made a happy card that works for any occasion.

ahsang HKC febcards 4

I used the cut apart pattern paper from Carta Bella for the background floral piece, as well as the flower pot sentiment piece, which I cut into a tag.  I embellished it with Pinkfresh Studio flowers and a Carta Bella brad.  This card was the easiest and fasted to make, but I might love it the most because of those gorgeous painted flowers!

For my third card, I made a Valentines card.

ahsang HKC febcards 5

I used a February freebie cut file called Hearts Background 2, and I cut it from white cardstock.  I adhered the cut file with foam squares to one of the pattern papers in the kit.  I added the Crate Paper stickers, the Valentine’s heart and the So Sweet banner, as well as the wreath and enamel dots from Pinkfresh Studio.

For my last card, I made a card that would be perfect to send encouragement.

ahsang HKC febcards 6

I used one of the exclusive PL cards, and I die cut a large circle.  I adhered it with foam tape to add dimension.  For the main focus, I used this cute truck chipboard sticker from Carta Bella.  I added some florals and banners from Pinkfresh Studio, as well as some brads from Carta Bella.  To finish off the card, I added some Prima opal magic paint splatters.
