Creations Scrapbook Centrale Creative Team Project 2024-Jun-15


I am sharing another shaped card today, this one is for the Creations Scrapbook Centrale FB group challenge.  Our June challenge, which is hosted by myself, is all about making a Shaped Card.  

I made this card for someone very dear to me, he cares a lot about the environment, and his favorite sport is Volleyball.  In the front basket of the bike, there are water bottles and bananas (his favorite fruit), and in the back basket, there's a volleyball (I die a round shape, and hand drew the lines and colored with alcohol markers), and a few olive branches (die from Poppy Stamps).

Here's a photo of the backside.

Other than the die set and stamp set shown in photo above, I've used these supplies:

Spellbinders Standard Circle (S4-114) nested die set
Versamark Watermark Ink Pad
WOW Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder
Talored Expressions Today's Menu Clear Stamp set
Altenew Enamel Dots (Warm Grey)
Copic Markers (W1, Y02,Y15,Y17,E25,E35,B12)
Sakura Gelly Roll White Gel Pen

You're Appreciated

 Happy Friday everyone!

I have a quick share today, quick sharing, not necessary quick to create. 😊

I was inspired by how the pink and purple flowers in the background of the Altenew June 2024 Inspiration Challenge inspiration photo.

I created an ombre background with those two colors, and layered a white negative piece of the Zero-Waste Leaf Pattern die cuts.  Then I add the yellow/orange hat adorned with purple and pink flower.

Creations Scrapbook Centrale Creative Team Project 2024-Jun-05

Hello, welcome back!

This is my second post of the day.  To see my first post keep scrolling or click here for the short cut. 

This post is all about shaped card as well, and it's for the Creations Scrapbook Centrale fb group challenge for June, the theme is: Shaped Card (any shape except square and/or rectangle), and the color option is Fushia/Hot Pink.

I used a set of oval nested die for the base of the project.  Well, to make an oval shaped card stand is rather difficult, so I made it into an easel card.

I had so much fun putting the flowers together for this card, and the dimensions are really nice.  Not a card you could send thru the regular snail mail!

Here's a few photos to explain the basic construction of the card.

step 1: cut two panel using largest die, one for back panel, one for easel connection.  Cut again with largest die, but with the corresponding decorative oval die.  On the easel connection piece, make a mountain fold at mid-point, and a valley fold 1/2 inch from top.

step 2: glue the 1/2 flap at top of base panel.

step 3: glue the card front piece to the bottom flap of the easel connection piece.  You could do this step after you complete the card front.  Or just attach another layer on top of the card front.

To complete my card, I decorated the front before attaching to the easel.  Also I die cut another oval, inked and attached to the card base.  Also make a 'stopper' using the two smallest dies; it is attached with foam adhesive.

Supplies used for my project shown in photos below:

So happy you stopped by, have a wonderful day!!

Favorite Die Cut Shape (take 2) on Die Cut Divas

 Hello there,

I am sharing another Favorite Die Cut Shape challenge inspiration on Die Cut Divas today.  My project features the Elizabeth Craft Designs Mason Jar/Snowglobe Special Die Set.  

I created this shape shaker card with many dies.  To make it about 5 1/2 inch tall, I have to do partial die cut to make a shorter jar.  The "jar" is cut from iridescent card stock, and the lid is cut from brushed chrome card stock.  

The florals are also die cut from iridescent card stock, and I tinted them with archival ink.

I stamped "sending a little holiday sparkle" in black in the inside.

Favorite Die Cut Shape on Die Cut Divas


It is already June 1st?  Ready or not, here's a new challenge on Die Cut Divas Challenge Blog.  Our theme this month is: Your Favorite Die Cut Shapes.  

So bring out your favorite die cut shape dies and play along.  Please do tell us what die you used that is a favorite and why you chose your favorite(s).  If you make it a shaped (other than square or rectangle) card, even better.

Our sponsor this month is Elizabeth Craft Designs.  They are offering a $25 gift card to the challenge winner.

Here's my project made with one of my favorite die cut shapes, a camera die cut from the Camera Insert Kit (1763).

I die cut with Elizabeth Craft Design Bellerose Pink card stock for base, and embellished with some flowers and satin white sequins.  

I lined the inside with white card stock, and stamped with Flower Centers (CS330), and added a cake which I die cut using Christmas Pudding (retired).  

I hope I've inspired you to come join in the challenge.  Do hop over to Die Cut Divas and check out more inspiration projects.
