|Scrap Shotz October Kit Bonus Project|


The Scrap Shotz DT has been unveiling our kit club projects over the past weeks. We are on part 2 of the reveal, you can all my previous projects on the Scrap Shotz blog HERE and HERE

I found one last layout that I forgot to include in my previous Scrap Shotz posts so I'm sharing it here 😁.

There are so many lovely patterns in this kit and I wanted to showcase them here so I punched circles which were then cut in half and arranged in diagonal rows.

I layered 3 photos taken of the backyard at the same time to help showcase how lush this garden is.

 You can see the shine the Studio Katia clear crystals add to the layout, kit stickers also embellish the page.

I used one of of the post its as the journaling block.

Make sure you stop by the Scrap Shotz blog to see all the projects created by the team😊.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafting with Concord and 9th


I just finished my final October kit projects for Scrap Shotz so I have a small window of time to post some of my latest cards. I've shared most of them on Instagram but I wanted to share them here as well to give you a few details about them. I was asked to create some samples using Concord and 9th products for the booth at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.

These first two cards use the Concord and 9th Globe Greetings stamp and die set.
 I made a galaxy background using two colours of Distress Ink and white paint, super easy to do! I stamped the earth image with black Versafine ink on heat emboss-able acetate and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

I die cut multiple circle frames and stacked on top of each other to create the shaker 'pocket' and adhered the acetate earth with liquid glue. The top frame is inked with Clearsnap gold ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Sentiment is heat embossed with the same ink and powder as the shaker frame, a smattering of gold sequins completes the card.

This next card is completely different but yes I used the circle die cut and the sentiment from the same C&9th Globe Greetings set.
I brushed Gansai Tambi Pearl watercolours in pink, blue, green and peach on watercolour card stock, dried with a heat tool and then went over the entire panel with Wink of Stella clear glitter.

Sentiment is heat embossed in gold on heat resistant vellum. Liquid glue is placed behind the letters to adhere the vellum to the card stock. Gold sequins accent the panel as well.

These next two cards use the Aloha floral fill in papers and stencils. The 6x6 papers have patterns on one side and then printed foliage on the other side with florals that you can fill in with colour using the stencils.

Here I have applied Altenew ink on the flowers, cut the paper down, die cut thanks multiple times from the same patterned paper and then stacked the words together. A Wink of Stella marker adds some shimmer to the flower centres and die cut word, unfortunately you can not see it in the photo.

The flowers were inked with the stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Worn Lipstick, then dried with a heat tool. Translucent embossing paste was applied through the second stencil and then set aside to dry. Once the paste was dried, I adhered gold foil with the Minc. I then placed the floral stencil back over the paper and applied embossing ink and clear embossing powder to the flowers and heat set. This now created a resist so I was able to apply Distress ink to the background without also inking the pink flowers. Card is completed with a sentiment from Altenew's Label Love stamp set.

This card uses the Sunshine Turnabout stamp and die. I think I'll be adding this stamp to my collection and maybe turn a few of this design into Christmas cards.
I used the stamp with Ranger sticky embossing powder and after heat setting applied glitter flakes. The matching die cuts a lovely scalloped frame so I cut that out of glitter paper, gold heat embossed the stamp sentiment on white card stock and popped it up with foam tape. A few Studio Katia clear crystals finish off the card.

I'll have a few more cards to share and at some point I'd like to put some of these great stamps to use on a scrapbook layout😄.
