Paper craft project no. 195: Heartfelt thanks mixed media card [with video tutorial]

2014-05-27 Heartfelt thanks mixed media card

Hello and glad you stopped by! It’s a brand new challenge over at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog and this week, the challenge is to use 3 flowers in your project. For my project, I used a digi stamp from one of our sponsors, Sweet ‘n Sassy. It’s actually a collage digi stamp, but what I did was color just the 3 flowers in it with Spectrum Noir and fussy cut them. For the background, I used an embossing folder and some Distress paints to pull a print. But rather than bore you with a long description of how I made this card, I thought I’d show you. Took me about 45 minutes to make this mixed media card, but my sped-up video is less than 7 minutes. Yep, like my previous videos, this is captioned and accompanied by Mozart (if you don’t hear any music, it means YouTube isn’t done adding it to my video). I hope you’ll check out the projects that my teammates created and we’d love it if you’d join us!

I’d like to enter my card to the following fun challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More #97 – Make Your Mark (I used Spectrum Noir markers, Distress paints, white PITT artist pen, and Inktense blocks); Through the Craftroom Door – Always Anything Goes; Crafting from the Heart #20 – Anything Goes; Fairytale Stampers #39 – Flowers; and Brown Sugar Challenge #95 – Anything Goes.

ETA: I’m also linking this to Inkspirational #57 – Bloom. (Thanks for the heads up, Carol!)

By the way, I have a new monthly challenge blog, The Mixed Media Card Challenge, and it officially starts July 1. I’m looking for a few card-makers who love playing with different mediums to join the design team. Hope you’ll check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hi Shery. I came over to thank you for the great job you did using Creative Bug Digital SnapShots image, Hearts Bouquet on your DT project for 613 Avenue Create this week, but unfortunately I can’t seem to find your post. I was going to recommend that you come and link it up to our own current challenge so if you do end up posting it before June 3, I hope you’ll consider linking.
