A Pretty Greeting Card with Sandi

Bo Bunny, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey, hey! 

It's Sandi here today with a DT project using the Kisses and Snowflakes January Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden Kit. 

This is actually a little something that I created for my hubby for Valentines Day ... he's gotten kind of used to receiving flowers on his cards, lol.  Seriously, he has! 


I'm still experimenting with where to take photos here at my new house. It's a bit of a learning curve until I find the exact right spot. Bear with me.

I turned to the BoBunny papers located in the Bonus paper add-on and used Frosty and Nippy from Winter Playground collection. The cute solid teal banner on the left side is from the BoBunny sticker set.


I had fun embossing the large "Love" chipboard from Creative Embellishments and used some powders I had on hand. I love creating multi-colored chipboard pieces.  It was grounded on a paper doily and clustered with flowers and ephemera as well as pearls. 


The Petaloo blooms co-ordinate so perfectly. The Zella Teal ephemera from Prima was also an amazing match! 


Hope you can see the banner tucked in there! 


Another ephemera banner from Prima. And lastly, I dabbed everything with some white acrylic paint .. a little bolder than just gesso.

Hello, scrappy friends! 

Sandi here with you today sharing another DT project created with the January Garden Kit and bonus kits from International Scrapbook Garden Kisses and Snowflakes.

For this layout, I opted to go cold and wintry and decided to go with more of the gray, silvery tones of the Kit with just a wink of teal. When I look out the window of my craft room, all I see right now is gray.  While I'm anxious for Spring, there is beauty to be found in Winter's colors. 


I did less mixed media on this project but still primed with clear gesso and then added streaks of the Glitter Snow. For color, I used white gesso and some of the teal Prima chalk edger. I prepared the Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces (Blizzard Word Set and Dripping Hearts Lace Border) with gesso and then painted them white. To make the title a little more chilly feeling, I used some white embossing powder from my stash. 

Also from my stash, I've used some paper doilies and cheesecloth for layers. 


The Snip Art chipboard Frame was also painted white and used as a layer, as was the Dripping Hearts Border. For more layers I used the Emphemera from Prima's Zella Teal collection.  A pretty silver flower was created with the singles in the Kit along with a brad from my stash.
In the background, you can see some of the stamping done with the KaiserCraft Clear Stamp.


More beautiful Prima flowers from Zella Teal along with a tiny vintage Prima flower.


I've tucked in more ephemera and used the wonderful Snowflake brads from the Main Kit. And although, you wouldn't look for butterflies this time of year, I've added one for color and texture.


Loved embossing this little guy and mounting him on a strip of ephemera and foam tape.


I've scattered some of the KaiserCraft Teal Pearls around and dabbed everything with a coat of white gesso. Lastly, some watered down gesso was splattered about.

If you don't have a Kisses and Snowflakes kit, I hope you'll try to grab one before they are gone.

7 Dots Northern Light Frayed Knot
KaiserCraft Clear Stamp PS I Love You

"Dream" with Sandi Clarkson

Hello there, everyone!
Sandi here with you today.
Thanks for bearing with me during the very long process of packing, moving and unpacking. It's gone on far too long ... but we are getting settled.

I'm here today with my DT debut with the Kisses and Snowflakes kits.
I have recently joined the Design Team there and will be designing with the Garden Kit.
They have such beautiful Kits with gorgeous supplies including bonus kits ... and focus on the "harder to find" international paper collections.


So, here is my first project where I'm using the 7 Dots Boardwalk paper as my base. Love this paper!

The photo is of my granddaughter MacKayla working with her horses in the bitter Kentucky cold. I hoped for a frosty look, so there is lots of shine that doesn't quite come across in photos. After doing some background mixed media work using the Bonus Kit supplies, I started layering and adding my embellishments.

Here is a photo of the Main Kit and a link to the store.

Here are some close-ups:


On the background I've used clear gesso to prime, then pushed super heavy gesso through the Prima Stencil included in the Embellishment Bonus Kit. Then I added depth with the Main Kit Kaiser Craft stamp using both black ink as well as the purple Color Philosophy found in the Mixed Media Kit.


I added color of course, using the Shimmerz Vibez in Grape Escape from the Mixed Media Kit.  It pairs beautifully with the Purple Prills from the Main Kit. I grabbed embellishments from all the various kits but was sure to include the Prima Zella Teal Ephemera.


I adore the wood veneer snowflakes from the Main Kit! I've tucked them in amongst my flowers which are from both the Main Kit and from the Flower add-on.


Scrapberry makes the most divine Flair and these are included in the Main Kit. And there are lots of pearls and rhinestones to embellish. with.


Just a couple of views from the side. The colors all played so well together!
