"Yay!" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Scrap Friends

Today I've got a layout to share for Scrapbook Boutique 

"Yay!"


I started with the wonderful Kaisercraft "Christmas Edition" collection.



I love the neutral papers and how subtle they are.

I've teamed it up with a wreath cut file.


I've also blinged up the background (see what I did there :)
with some Colour Blast paste in "Bling".



Other elements on the page are the super cute "Dazzles Stickers".


Here is the process video if you'd like to watch .



Thanks for visiting.

Happy 18th Birthday

Hi everyone - it's Ann here with an 18th birthday card.  I love the look of Mandalas and I have used a stencil by Kaisercraft to create my card in rainbow colours using a mix of Distress Inks and Distress Oxides.  Colours used are:  Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves.


I think this design would be useful for other significant birthdays too and I have made it a large square card with black and gold mounts to complement the mandala shape.  The 18 is a chip board numeral I have had for a while - now up to 4 grandchildren who have passed this milestone, but this is for the first grand-daughter to turn 18.  I sponged the chip with Versamark and dipped it into gold embossing powder and heat set it.  This was repeated twice more to obtain a rich coverage.


Card Dimensions:
Base card is 14.8 cm square white card.
Mandala panel - 13cm square
Black mount - 13.5cm square
Gold Mount - 14cm square.

Tape the stencil over the white panel - using large post it notes, section off half of the mandala - i.e. top to bottom.  Use another post it to section off 1/8th - think quarters, then halve that - this gives you room to sponge 8 colours around the circle.  Each time you move to another eighth - use a clean post- it note for the new section, so you don't smudge a wet colour just used.  Distress inks and Distress Oxides blend so well because they retain moisture for a while, but this could cause a little contamination of colours if you re-use your notes while still damp.

Avoid leaving a white line between sections by placing the post it note slightly inside the previous colour.

White heat emboss your sentiment onto black card - I used a sentiment by Memory Box because it was a small and simple font - I felt this was all that was needed.

Add your sentiment and numeral (if using this) then complete the card with an assortment of sequins.

Mount onto black card, then gold then attach to card front.  For larger and heavier cards, such as this one, I keep the fold to the side - they seem to stand up better that way.

I hope you like this card design - it is fun to use a stencil to create such a vibrant card so do give it a try.

Thank you so much for visiting and I wish you very happy crafting time.
