Hello Everyone! For today’s blog post , I chose to grab Collection 3 (my favorite from the March kit) and try to make 4 cards. I managed to make FIVE!!
My inspiration for this collection was “1 Sheet Wonder” cards. I started by taking the pattern paper I had left and trimming them down to a few different sizes. Here are the cards…
Card 1 –
The pieces of pattern paper I have are not large enough to create a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel. I used the card base as a “mat” for the pattern paper and added one larger pieces and a small strip. I stamped the image from the stamp set with MFT Extreme Black Ink and cut with a circle die. I took a light blue card stock from my stash and used a mini scallop stitched die to cut a circle just a bit larger than the image and added that the the center of the pattern paper. I finished this card by adding a few sequins from the pack found in the Banana Split pack from this kit.
Card 2 –
I arranged smaller pieces of pattern paper onto a card base and then die cut the greenery die three times to add to the card. I added Distress Ink to the die cuts (Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs). I chose the sentiment “Follow your Dreams” found in the stamp set. I used the Quickie Glue Roller Pen to adhere these pieces to the card base. (This glue does require an extra minute or 2 to dry).
Card 3 –
I used a longer piece of pattern paper and lined that up with the left side of the card. I then adhered a shorter, wider piece over the top. I trimmed a green pattern paper into a thin piece and used that between the 2 patterns. I did the same with the image on the front as I did in card one. I added that to the card with foam adhesive. This card was finished by adding 3 buttons from the pack of buttons that come from this kit to the upper left.
Card 4 –
For this card, I took a piece of pattern paper that was approximately 3×6 and cut it in half. I added 1 piece to the left and 1 piece to the right. In the middle, I added the remainder of the green pattern paper. I then took a square piece and trimmed it just a little to sit in a diamond shape in the center of the card. In the center of that card, I added a small, square piece. In the center of that I added the “Follow your dreams” sentiment on a small, mini scallop stitched circle die cut. I finished this card by adding sequins to the card with Ranger Muti Medium Matte adhesive.
Card 5 –
I call this the scraps of scraps card! I took a square card base that was from my stash and arranged the rest of the scraps. I used some thin peel off stickers from a previous card kit to add between the different patterns. I then added the image to the card in the same style as card 1 and added sequins.
