(I changed my cards alittle after looking at them today!! Here is a photo of them before.)
So I decided to use it for my jumping off point!! I found this while joining in on a swap over at YourPaperPantry.ning.com If you've never heard of it you should check it out!! =) We have monthly swaps in all different mediums and I will say that the connections that you make with other crafters is probably the BEST part!! It is a yearly fee of $12.00 and that pays for events and prizes and FUN Swaps each month!! If your instersted check it out and join us!! =)
I wanted to make a frame for my first card and decided to use a Maya Road Chipboard frame. I had to make four of these cards and didn't have enough of the one style so I made two different styles!! I wanted it to look like a real wood frame so I decided to ink it in a deep Coffee Archival Ink!! I Love the way it looks!! Then I made the flowers and I used both core`dinations cardstock and felt!! I added some lace a vintage button and a red gem to the center of the button to finish the flower off!! I then added some May Arts Burlap Twine in cream behind the flower to add some dimension. I cut two leaves out of some khaki felt and added some stitching to the leave using the same May Arts Twine!! I added it to the frame and I LOVE the way they turned out!!
For my next set of cards I decided to use the FUN Jars from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Line from American Crafts as my jumping off point!! From there after looking through my dies I decided to use the New Rainbow set from Lil` Inker Designs. I just LOVED this set when I saw it and I decided to add the rainbow to the inside of the jar!! I added a sentiment that came with the set and used the hello also from this set on the tag that I die cut using a tag die from W Plus 9. The little heart is from a set from The Craft's Meow!! I die cut a little heart from felt from another Lil` Inker Designs set. The Ribbon that I used is from May Arts A red Silk and a Yellow Bakers Twine!! Then a button and the lace are from Jolee's Boutique from the French Market Line!! I LOVE the way that I was able to use non-traditional colors for my rainbow and it still looks like a CUTE Rainbow!! Just goes to show that these dies are SO VERSATILE!! They can be used in several different ways!!
