Card Making

Colourful cards

May 20, 2011

Good day ladies! Camilla, LG and Lesley here sharing a few cards that we made using the Chapter One collection.

Camilla: I just love the blues and greens of the Chapter One collection. Add black and white and you have such great colour combos.

Card “Grattis” – Camilla Ekman: Chapter One Paper Pad (PP843); Mini Alphas – Black & White (MA501)

Other: Flower, leaves

Card “Tack” – Camilla Ekman: Chapter One Paper Pad (PP843); Alpha Stickers – Sea Breeze (AS220); Journal Tags – Chapter One (JT619)

Other: Flower, leaves

LG: Getting tired of standard sized cards? Make it fun and tryout different sizes or even shapes! The fun thing about making your own cards is having the freedom to be creative.  Inspired by the vine-like design, I made a vertical card with a measurement of 3.5″x7″.  With this size, I was able to portray movement in my card, butterflies flying upward. Try it out!

Card by LG Belarmino: Chapter One patterned papers Motivate (P670), Paper Pad (PP843), and Coloured Rubons (RB920). Others: butterfly punches and black cardstock.

Lesley: Chapter One is such a gorgeous collection. I made a simple Mothers Day card for my mum. I also created another card using a resist technique. I stamped onto cardstock with white paint using the fabulous clear stamps from this collection. I then used distress ink to ink over the cardstock and image. When I was finished I used a damp paper towel to wipe the ink from the white paint revealing the orignal stamped image.

    Love the color combos! I like making 3×6 cards because you can get 4 from one sheet of 12×12 cardstock….. I blogged about it on May 18th… *smile*
