My fabulous Card Club gals came together last week to create some fun new projects. Since I’ve been “coloring” a lot lately the projects seemed to have a lot of coloring elements included. Sponging, ink pens, water coloring and even heat embossing! I was teasing the girls that they might have to dust off there heat guns. I know mine hadn’t been plugged in for a long time. It was good to get back to some of these core tools. Here are the projects with some basic information. If you have any questions about the projects don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
First off the 3D project (I always try to incorporate one). I’ve been wanting to do these little life saver roll snowman for a while. So when I saw the gloves on sale after the holidays for $50/pair I snagged a few colors. These are super easy. Draw the faces, wrap the rolls, cut the fingers, tie the tops and roll the brims. We wrapped some yard embellishment around the middle and added the little punched heart. Super easy and cute for the kids valentines day or even to sneak into your friends desk, purse etc.
Of course you end up with glove scraps that look like the photo on the left. We had a good giggle about using the middle finger for these sweet little hats. I’ll tuck them away for something later.
This next one uses the Sale a Bration set (Flowing Fields). It is stamped in black and just haphazardly colored with the chalk marker. The little bit of white just makes the leaves pop.
Next the water color resist card. We embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and used the aqua painter to bring in the water colored look. The gals were a little nervous to try this one but most thought it was actually easier than it looked.
Next was the sponged background card. I don’t think this was a favorite but it allowed them to do something different. We used the simple sponges to apply the green/blue ink and then used the same Sale A Bration stamp set for the images. We colored in the flowers/leaves with the SU markers.
Lastly, since I won’t see them before Valentines day I had to have something for the holiday. This simple washi and shape window was a hit.
Hope you enjoyed the projects too.
