The Caring Hearts Card Drive 2015

Here at Scrapbook Boutique we are delighted to get behind The Annual Caring Hearts Card Drive.
This wonderful venture was started by Vera Yates 6 years ago to create and give Christmas Cards to Nursing Home Residents to bring them the joy of Christmas and let them know someone has been thinking especially of them this holiday season.

Design Team member Linda Langes will collect and distribute cards throughout Australia with the help of a regular Scrapbook Boutique supporter Deb McCleary who will coordinate cards for 
Nursing Homes in Victoria.

Please head to Linda'a blog to get all the information you will need to get involved.

I can't wait to see your gorgeous Christmas cards arriving for this wonderful cause.

Happy crafting all!

A pop of colour!

Hi there - Linda here today having some more fun with 
For this card I played around with one layer only of inking/stamping, with the sentiment strip then added over the top.
Here's the final card and then a few step-by-step photos of the process...

I die cut a number of crayon shapes from Inkadinkado Stamping Mask paper and stuck them all over my white card base...

I then grabbed my little ink cube and smooshed it all over the card base ...

until it was completely covered. I then peeled away the masks and voila, stark white crayon shapes ready for stamping into :)

Then it was just a matter of stamping the crayons (with Memento Tuxedo Black) and colouring them with Copics.

I stamped out the sentiment in parts, masking off the words/letters I didn't want with painter's tape each time - a little time consuming but that way I got it how and where I wanted it :) That's how I adjusted the spelling of Colour also :) - the "U" was drawn with a Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Marker in Violet.

A few sequins in between the crayons and my card is finished :)

It should bring a bit of happy to someone's day I think :)
Bye for now...

New Suit

Hi there! Angela here with another Gelato LO!  This time, I have changed it up a little and not gone the usual way of using water to activate all the colour.  I have used a paste and once it was dry rubbed gelatos across the paste and with my finger rubbed diagonally to create a look of movement.  This can give you the mixed media look but a little more controlled.

* with a 12x12 smooth white cardstock, place a Tim Holts Stars layering stencil and secure lightly with washi.
* Wipe paste over the stencil until completely covered.  I used a serrated plastic knife to give the paste a little more texture.
* gently lift off stencil and wash immediately!  the paste, if left to dry is really hard to remove.
*Once completely dry, rub gelatos across the paste using a few different colours.
* with your finger, rub in a diagonal motion and blend the colours together. Rub the colours off the paste and onto the cardstock.
*Adhere the pic to the far left of the paste and die cuts as shown
* Using Glossy Accents, adhere Heidi Swapp Transparent letters as your title.
* Trim white cardstock to 11x11 and fold washi tape around the edges as shown
* Using a fine liner draw a continuous line with a loop every so often
* Adhere to green patterned paper.

Such a perfect day by Judith Armstrong

Hello, Judith here today with my second layout created using Kaisercraft Time Machine. It is a great masculine range and I found this old photo of my son which matched the colours perfectly.

  1. I began using the Kaisercraft Time Machine Steam Machine for my base.
  2. Using the Bo Bunny clock stencil I added part stencils around the edges of the page using Distress Ink and Liquid Pearls.
  3. I matted my photo with Time Machine Coggler and then Clocks.
  4. Before adhering the photo and mats to the page I tucked some stickers and embellishments from the sticker sheet and the Collectables under the mat on the bottom right and top left. 
  5. Once I adhered my photo and mats down I added a title and some sentiments from the sticker sheet and Collectables using foam tape.
  6. I added a title using some of the alphas from the sticker sheet which I inked to match the colour scheme of the layout.
And here are a couple of close ups.

The liquid pearl really does shine!

Thanks for looking

Judith xx
