I’ve been working on layouts and cards lately; there’s so many lovely new supplies I got inspired to scrap some photos, as well as working on my cards.
The new Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons are gorgeous; I couldn’t wait to use them, and I knew they would work for this photo taken at Christmas. I combined the red chipboard buttons with the navy die-cut; I love navy, but there isn’t much around so I was happy with how this layout turned out:
It’s funny how the simple layouts can take longer than the more detailed ones. I did a simple layout for this photo; I wanted to see the picture clearly, and the embellishments are enough by themselves. I cut the die-cut and I’ve ‘joined’ it with one of the chipboard buttons. I put metal eyelets through the button-holes, then tied hemp through. The flowers are layered felt with vintage buttons, and I love my psx stamps!
The latest Basic Grey blog challenge is up, and this week we’re making cards with pockets. There has to be a pocket somewhere on your card, and of course at least one Basic Grey item is to be used. I wanted to do something different, so I used the grey paper from the Ambrosia range to make this wedding card:
I’ve also used brads from the porcelain range and Eva clear stamps. The tag pulls out and has another crown stamped on it. Another grey colour combo; I like the look.
I wanted to make a card with a warm, homemade feel, so I used one of my fabric yo-yos for this one:
I ‘embroidered’ the stem and red border, and I’ve also used Jenni Bowlin paper and felt. You can get the Basic Grey and Jenni Bowlin ranges at Chandon Craft.
Well, that’s enough for now, I’m off to make my next Basic Grey challenge card. Thanks for stopping by,
