Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the Corner Scraps Blog!
Spring is here! Birds are chirping, butterflies are fluttering, and spring storms keep us on our toes!
For my first project of April, I have some sample cards; three cards, three “difficulties.” Check out my video below to see what I did to put them together.
The first card I make is a quick and easy card, using just the kit and a few bit of bling from my stash. The second card is a little more involved – I make a shaker card, and for the third card, I bring in the mixed media kit so I can talk about gel printing a little early in the month!
Quick & Easy Card:
For this card, I just grabbed up a couple of tags from the tag pack, added some foam dots to give a little lift, added a rub-on rose & the rub-on sentiment, and popped on a few flowers from the flower pack and some bling from my (hoarded) stash! I don’t think this card took even 5 minutes to complete!
For my shaker card, I cut out some foam circles to use as spacers and some heavy-duty clear packaging plastic to use as my shaker window. I have a rub-on under the shaker pieces, and I glued the flowers to the underside of the plastic! They are in the shaker, but they don’t move. My shaker pieces are some sequins and some chunky glitter.
Gel Print Card:
For my third and final card, I broke into this month’s mixed media kit and added some of the fabulous Dina Wakley Gloss Sprays to my card using the gel plate! I will be talking more about gel printing in other projects this month, but I wanted to get you going with a few little tips of what you can do with the sprays, paint, and gel plate from the mixed media kit.
I used the gel plate to make patches of color on my background and envelope, I turned the gel plate into a stamp pad so I could add some stamped text to my card front, and I went in with the Lime spray using my fingers as my brush on the envelope and added some Lime splatter to my card front. I have three tags layered for this card and tucked in a few flowers. It wasn’t a “hard” card to make, I merely consider it the more “difficult” of the three cards because there is more to be done to finish it! (Plus I bring in another of April’s Kits!)
Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas for cards you can make using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit. Keep an eye on the blog for more projects using this month’s kits!
