Fall will soon be upon us and what a better time to make a few “Scrapling cards” to have handy. The base of this card is mixed media paper that I coffee stained. On one card pattern paper was used. The other has recycle corrugated cardboard (which I prefer.) Then I layered digital tags I found on Etsy and printed out at home. They were then decorated with some stamps, paper punch leaves (chalked), and buttons. Super easy!
I am sharing another little fold out that was made in all pink with you today. There were several that I made up as proto types for a class last week. This album was made using a variety of things. Old K & Company sticker borders, butterflies, pattern papers, poetry ephemera, collage images, and digital images. I also typed a poem and cut it into strips that were added to each page.
Are there any projects that you would like to see created here? Please let me know in the comments below.
Sharing these little skinny cards (3 x 5 inches) today. I made them using Tim Holtz papers which I mounted to tan cardstock. I then layered paper tags, collage images, washing tape, butterflies and buttons. I then added a little bit of text to each piece.
These also are great for junk journals and/or to mount on to a larger card.
My art time has changed drastically since last August as I babysit my little Grandson many days a week. He is now 21 months, but I started babysitting when he was one. This has blessed my life immensely! It is very challenging on my physical and neuro fatigue (from my stroke), but the best kind of exhaustion. I have been blessed to watch him grow and learn new things. I cannot imagine not living near him.
So, I am trying to learn to have projects ready for when I do have some free time. This little card was one of those moments. I had purchased the embossing folder a few months ago and have not tried it out much. I don’t own many Sizzix diecuts, but I do like to emboss so I will have fun with this. I also ran the image through the sewing machine to give a little extra dimension.
Do you have a favorite embossing folder for your Sizzix?
