Tres Jolie Kit Club-Cards, Cards, Cards!-July 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! I hope you had a craft-astic July and we were able to inspire you to go out and create!
For my third Cards, Tags, & More Kit project, I have a few cards, a few different ways!

Now for the close-ups and a few details for each card!

These two cards are some basic, “flat” cards. The “Happy Birthday” card is a 4-3/4”x4-3/4” square with just a piece of the striped cardstock, a doily die cut, and a piece of vellum with the greeting embossed. The “Let’s Celebrate!” is just stamped straight on the cardstock. I used a die from my stash with the Sizzix Emboss & Transfer set to add a little dimension to those birds being “pushed through” the gold cardstock.

The flowers from the kit get featured with these two cards! The “Hooray” cards is a little more fun with the flourish coming out from under the flower! The vertical card is more elegant, with some bits of lace dangling with the leaves.

Both of these cards of pieced together background, using strips of cardstock I had leftover from my previous projects! I cut some rosettes for the slimline card—giving it the “Party” feeling. The “imagine” card is another “flat” card, but those stars are just perfect to “make a wish” on.

These two cards sum up my feelings about cake! Lucky and Yay!! For the card on the left I used the negative cuts from the sheet of cardstock from my first project and added in some doliy cuts to create the background. I used my hexagon punches and any bit of “scrap” cardstock I could find to create the background for the card on the right. To cards with the same greetings, but totally different looks!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Altered Embroidery Hoop

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final November project, I’m bringing you an altered hoop using items from my stash with items found in this month’s Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club.

I used an old embroidery hoop from my stash and upcycled some aluminum screen for this Autumn Butterfly piece! Check out the video below to see how I did it! (My husbands hands even make their Internet debut!)

Now, how about a few close-ups?

I wasn’t overly worried about “clogging” some of the holes in the screen with the gesso, I think it adds a little something to the piece and makes it seem more connected to the hoop. You don’t have to coat your screen with gesso and wax, I like it better this way though because it cut out the shine from the aluminum. You can also see that I added some “Vintage Gold” wax to the hoop to add just a little shine to offset the matte.

I finished off two partial packs of flowers on this project and added some die cut leaves coated in “Vintage Gold” wax and sprinkled with some glass glitter for my cluster on the bottom of the hoop, bringing the gold of the butterflies to the outside as well.

Isn’t it beautiful with the light coming from behind? It makes me think of the setting sun at the end of an autumn day.
