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.

"Lucy's Hope" with Sandi Clarkson

Hello, everyone! 

Sandi here today sharing another project created with the January Kisses and Snowflakes Kit from the International Scrapbook Garden. Along with all the fabulous add-on kits. 

This time it's a Lucy page! 

Jan18SC3a.JPG

My photo is a publicity photo of Lucille Ball from her early movie making days.  I love these more glamorous photos of Lucy because they show a different side of her from what people usually associate with her. 

My base layer is 13 Arts Dream paper. It's so beautiful but was hard for me to capture with our rainy days here in Texas. I primed with clear gesso and then sprayed and dripped a generous amount of the Shimmerz Grape in the center. My photo collage got larger than I expected and covered most of it. Story of my life! So, I added more. For texture I've used the Prima stencil and the Lilac Nuvo mousse. To increase the depth, I did some random stamping as well.

The 7 Dots tags were used as layers along with some of Prima Zella Teal ephemera and cheesecloth. Next I began layering my other loose embellishments.

Jan18SC3c.JPG

The wood veneer snowflakes add a wintry feel.

Jan18SC3d.JPG

All the flowers in the Kit and add-on co-ordinate in such a great way with all the papers.

Jan18SC3e.JPG

"Hope" ephemera for my title. And a heart from the Main Kit because don't we all "love" Lucy?

An example of the purple Prills added as another layer.

Lastly, I did some paint splattering with the Shimmerz and with white paint.

13 Arts Dream paper
7 Dots Northern Light Tags
7 Dots Northern Lights Die Cut Elements
Inkadinkado Clear Stamp Snowflakes Aplenty

Hello everyone !

I am here to share today another layout with January's Kisses and Snowflakes kit.  

I almost always start off with Clear Gesso on the surface because I never know at the beginning where I am going to put everything and what Medium I am going to use.  Here are a couple of shots on how I started my layout. I am in love with this Stencil from Prima (Vintage Emporium 6x6) !

Jan18AC3.jpg

I used 2 different stamps from  Kaisercraft PS I Love You with 2 different Ingvild Bolme Chalk Colors.
