Prima Day 12: Cigar Box Secrets Card

Here is a card I made for the challenge to use anything from the Cigar Box Secrets collection.

I used the 4x6 journaling notecards.  I die cut one of them with a Papertrey Ink tag die that resembles an ornament and tied a ribbon on top.  Also added a piece of ephemera and the word "JOY" on it, and some velvet ribbon along the bottom.  Behind the Prima flower is a couple of gold Ivy Bay leaves.  I tucked in a pearl spray and an Ingvild Bolme junkyard finding keyhole. Atop the flower is a cardinal die cut from a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

Prima Day 4 Christmas Card

On day 4 Prima challenged us to create a card using resist canvas, or crackle paste.  In my arsenal, I have a package of resist canvas.  I colored it using Prima's Color Bloom spray.

The paper collection is Time Traveler.  Along with Prima flowers, I added some wide gold ribbon, green/gold fibers, doily, and lace trim.  The stamped sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Prima Challenge Day 2: Dies

I had bought the flower cluster dies a few months ago, and just got around to using them.  On my card, I used Stationer's Desk papers, and die cut the flowers and made a tag.  Adding the pearl flower centers was perfect on the die cut.  Among the flowers, I also added an Invild Bolme junkyard finding and tucked in some black seam binding.  The Stampendous sentiment was heat embossed with black embossing powder. 

I'm glad I got to use these dies, and plan to use it more often.  Thanks for stopping by!

Just getting started on making cards and tags for Christmas.  I wanted to create a tag for the I Am Roses November Challenge.

The I Am Roses flowers I used are R2, R21, and R77.  The papers and die cuts are from the Twig and Berry collection by Kaisercraft.  Sentiment stamp is from the Turtle Dove collection.  Added some pearl spray, gold cording, and wide wired gold ribbon.  The base of the tag is by Graphic 45.

Prima Christmas Card Challenge Day 6 - Trims

It's that time of the year where Prima has their Christmas card challenges.  The focus of this card is how I incorporated Prima trims.  I hand made the tree using torn strips of paper, crumpled, distressed and inked.  Then added layers of trim within.

The papers are from the 6x6 Nature Garden pad.  I distressed and inked with teal damask chalk ink and shabby tote.  The flower is a Prima classic, just added a crystal bling in the center.  Stamped sentiment is by Stampendous.
