Vintage Cutie

I just love this sweet collage image from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder plate!  On this card I paired her up with some beautiful Prima papers, stamping the image in Espresso directly onto a scrap piece.  Additional Prima papers from the same pad where use for the background panel, die cut with Spellbinders Curved Borders Two.  To embellish I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding and Zva Creative Crystal Gems and a Pink Mini Rose.

Bloggers Challenge - Easter

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Stencils Challenge last week.  The challenge this week is Easter.

I created my card using Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies and ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses Die.  I added a verse from the He is Risen stamp set to the inside of my card.



When die cutting the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern (background), I placed the largest center die in the middle so that it would die cut the center panel out.  This die cut panel is popped up on dimensionals for added depth.  The ODBD Custom Ornament Crosses Die was cut from White and Black card stock, I traced the largest cross on Brushed Silver and hand cut that, then layered the cross die cuts as shown.  I added a Silver Gem to the center of the cross, and a few around the center opening.  I stamped a verse from the He is Risen stamp set on the inside of my card in Ranger Black Archival.

Details:

Card Stock - White, Black, Brushed Silver

Creations by AR April Design Team Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team Blog Hop! This month the Creations by AR Team members are sharing creations made with the new Easel Top Box TemplateContinue reading below to see how you can win this new template!

There are many uses for this fabulous template, I created mine as a gift for a friend to hold a set of A2 greeting cards.

I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut my template pieces from Bo Bunny Pattern Paper and Espresso Card Stock.  The photo at the top of my blog shows the Easel Top Box with the lid closed, I adhered the quote/die panel with magnets so it could easily be moved up in order to have it fit nicely on the easel portion of the box.


The quote is from Our Daily Bread Designs Quote Collection 4, stamped in Espresso ink on White card stock and die cut/embossed using the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die.  I layered the stamped panel on an Espresso panel that was also die cut/embossed using the ODBD Custom Die.  To embellish the quote panel, I added flourish die cuts from Pistachio card stock using the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die, and stamped butterflies using the Stamped By - Butterfly Mini.


To add depth and interest to the Bo Bunny pattern paper, I applied DecoArt Modeling Paste, through the Bobby Stencil from Just a Trace.   Once the Modeling Paste was dry I applied DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Poppy over the paste, blending with a little water to add additional color.

To decorate the side panels, I created an internal offset using the Silhouette, and cut the template pieces from Bo Bunny pattern paper.  To complete my Easel Top Box, I  randomly applied Gesso over the papers and card stock,  adhered Vintage Brown Seam Binding around the box, and added some Wooden Split Balls that were painted with DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint Coffee Bean.
