Prima Chalk Ink Blossom Tree

Memory Lane with Sandi

Hello, everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Sandi Clarkson here with you today to share another layout created with the March-April "A Rustic Spring" Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden. 

I took some photo editing privileges to alter this sweet bride's color scheme to suit my needs. Although I'm not usually a huge fan of pink, this sweet Fabscraps paper called out to me! So, I went all pink! 

I kept my mixed media to a minimum this time around and stenciled with the Prima chalk edger in Blossom. When the layout was complete, I splattered with watered down white paint from my stash and with some of the Shimmerz Steely Blue Eyes Inklingz.

I was thrilled to make use of the gorgeous chipboard Art Doors Set 1 from Creative Embellishments which I simply gessoed and then layered in staggered amongst my embellishment layers.

Here you can see the large 49 and Market Garden vine which looks more pink to me but is called pale lavender. I've used some of the other 49 and Market florals from the Kit and add-ons, as well some of the white chipboard leaf flourishes.

The large pinky-peach flower and the lace appliqués are from Tresors de Luxe. This was originally planned as a combined design team project. However, Lucy is changing her format going forward.

My photo layers are from the BoBunny Cottontail papers.

More gorgeous 49 and Market flowers, Shimmer and Shine plus an awesome Junk Findings street sign.

Along with the Prima butterfly, I added another of the Fabscraps vellum stickers.

Just one more shot of the beautiful vine and some of the wee mixology florals.

Lots of gorgeous dimension on this one!
All in all, a rather simple page.

Here's a Main Kit photo for you but I do receive ALL the add-ons and they quickly become part of all my projects! Can't help myself!

I'll see you next time!
In the meantime, happy creating!

Sandi

Hello from the rainy Pacific Northwest!  I am still dreaming of sunshine, despite all of the rainy skies here!  This week I am using the same papers and same techniques to produce two very different cards.  I will show you the first one today and the next one later in the month!

RusticSpringVWM3b.JPG

The recipe:

Colors:  Pink, Purple, Black and Whites
Patterned paper from the Garden Kit: Rustic Spring Kit  cut to 5 1/4 x 4
Embossing
Chalk Ink (Prima Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Blossom Tree)
Butterflies
Flowers (Market Floral Mixology Pink Flamingo)
Title
Shimmer paint  (Shimmerz Inklingz Coral Reef and Steely Blue Eyes)
Glitter
Spray Mists (Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding)

For this card I used paper from the main kit; the mixed media bonus kit provided the mist, and the bonus embellishment kit provided the glitter, stamp and title chipboard.

Do you ever get stuck on your card making? Or any kind of craft for that matter?  Sometimes I find a recipe can do the trick, sometimes a sketch is just the ticket, or sometimes working in my art journal on techniques can really help!

Let's see what  you are making over on our Facebook page!

Have a great day!
