The One with Creative Imaginations Cards

Monday, March 1, 2010

You know it's the beginning of the month when all I post are show-and-tells :) Happy March! These are some cards I created featuring mostly Creative Imaginations product and published in a recent issue of CARDS magazine.

Card is 5 x 4"
How to: Make a card base from decorative-edged patterned paper. Set a yellow journaling spot on the bottom left corner and trim the excess. Place a dimensional sentiment sticker on a teal journaling spot, adhere it on the yellow journaling spot and cut off the excess. Add a metal flower brad and a ribbon bow next to the sentiment. Cut a branch from blue cardstock (to make the branch you can lightly draw it with a pencil first or just go for it with a pair of scissors), adhere the branch to the card then place a jewel at the end of each twig.

Supplies: Cardstock, ribbon: American Crafts; Patterned paper, metal flower brad, dimensional sentiment sticker, jewels: Creative Imaginations; Journaling spots: Creative Imaginations (teal), Elle's Studio (yellow)

Card is 5.25 x 4.5"
How to: Make a card base from decorative-edged patterned paper. Punch pieces of colorful cardstock using decorative border punches and decorative scissors, cut off decorative edges from journaling die cuts, and cut off peices of decorative-edged patterned paper. Stagger all the paper pieces on the right side of the card then trim the excess. Stamp a journaling spot with a blue pen over the paper strips. Place "love" glitter chipboard letter stickers inside the stamp. Set an epoxy brad through the "o". Add an ampersand sticker next to the chipboard letters. Cut out "kisses" from a flashcard using mini scalloped scissors and adhere it below "love".

Supplies: Cardstock, glitter chipboard letter stickers, ampersand sticker, stamp marker: American Crafts; Patterned paper, epoxy brad, journaling die cuts: Creative Imaginations; Journaling spot stamp, flashcard: Elle's Studio; Decorative border punches: Fiskars; Decorative scissors: Provo Craft

Card is 4.5" square
How to: Make a card base from patterned paper with pre-die cut edges. Cut around the edges of the backside of the card to match the curves of the front. Pierce an epoxy brad through an epoxy sticker then set it through a crumpled yellow journaling spot. Cut off the white edge around the journaling spot. Cut out a circle from purple floral paper, crumple it, then set the brad through it. Punch a scalloped circle from blue floral paper, crumple it, then set the brad through it. Crumple orange and teal journaling die cuts, layer them together then set the brad through the center. Adhere the entire embellishment on the front of the card. Place "thanks" letter stickers around the epoxy sticker and add a ribbon bow below the epoxy brad.

Supplies: Patterned paper, epoxy brad, epoxy sticker, journaling die cuts: Creative Imaginations; Ribbon, letter stickers: American Crafts; Journaling spot: Elle's Studio; Scalloped circle punch: Marvy Uchida

Card is 4" square
How to: Create a 3 x 3 grid of embellishments using decorative brads, epoxy stickers, a jewel flourish, and a dimensional flower sticker on the front of a royal blue card as shown. On the bottom right corner, adhere a piece of a journaling spot, then place a dimensional sentiment sticker on top. Knot ribbon through the top of the sentiment sticker. Draw dotted lines between the embellishments using a white pen.

Supplies: Cardstock, ribbon: American Crafts; Brads (epoxy, metal flowers), epoxy stickers (butterfly, circle), dimensional stickers (flower, sentiment), jewel flourish, journaling spot: Creative Imaginations; Pen: Sharpie
