Altered Card Play

Good morning everyone I hope you have had an opportunity to create something using the March moodboard as there are only a couple of days left in this month to get your entry in over on the Facebook page. I got super messy with making some Giant Altered Playing Cards last night and incorporated some of those moodboard colours from the prompt.

These cards are huge... I think the only ones I have seen this big before this were the ones that Heidi Swapp brought out in her range quite a few years ago. These ones are 7" x 4.75" and to prep them I gave them a light sand.

 Card A I used glued tissue paper with Express It glue and rolled it out using a small brayer.
Card B I used some brown wrapping paper that came in my order from Scrapping Clearly - nothing is ever wasted especially when your packing paper from Kylie is this cool.

 CARD A                                                CARD B

 I have used this awesome Carabelle - Abstract flowers and leaves printing plate with some Ranger black ink on CARD A and then added Liquitex texture paste tinted with Dylusions After Midnight ink spray through a dot stencil.

                                                           CARD A

 I have added some fabric tape to the side of Card B and then used a little Liquitex texture paste through a Kinder Kreations Eggsaturated stencil. 


 Dina Wakley Media Tape was used on Card A. I then got a little crazy with the Dylusions spray on that amazing paper on Card B which then rendered it a not good  OMG moment... so out came some more texture paste to lighten things up and this time I used the Kinder Kreations Artist brushes stencil. After this I added a little muslin in prep for the quote. 

  CARD A                                                CARD B

Time to add a few more little bits and pieces ... 
On Card A I added some stamping using the Lavinia stamps fairy barnacle  and a quote was aslo stamped on from Dina Wakley Media stampsOn Card B I used Stampers Anonymous Random Quotes range and coloured in the word creativity using Dylusions Pomegranate Seed ink spray. I have also used an ALLS pencil around the edge and a little water. 

  CARD A                                CARD B

They next layers added were 
Card A - Heidi Swapp photo frames, twine, tag, Dina Wakley Scribbly insects stamps and Heidi Swapp wood veneer word (today).
Card B - 7 Gypsies stamp (note), Dina Wakley media tape (face), enamel number plate, stitching. 

These are the finished Cards. 

  CARD A                                                                 CARD B

I started the year wanting to make a playing card a week and I am definitely a few behind - but that is okay because the catch up is always the fun part. Have a fun & messy creative weekend.

simply noted

Welcome to another fabulous weekend... I hope you are having a good crack at the challenge this month - so  much inspo ... I honestly struggle with even a hint of purple .... but i have taken a few of the colours off this months amazing moodboard to get this one done and over the line... this kiddo is turning 18 at the end of next week - love him to bits - lucky to have him as a nephew... 

 Simply & Noted 

I have used the Dylusions Pomegranate Red spray on a blank bit of cardstock- which I then cut down for a second layer and added to the Heidi Swapp September Skies - Midnight shadows cardstock.  

I have then added the Turqoiuse spot and then all the layers and embellishments just snowballed on the page ... a Heidi Swapp colour pop window frame was added to continue on with the layers. Also the Dina Wakely Media stamps - Handwritten quotes, Bold Journal elements & Viva Las Vegas spot stamps. Ooooh I almost forgot the Tim Holtz Ideaology Metal Quote Tokens - so so good... 


I have used the Pink Fresh words to add to the feeling of the layout - there are so many good words in this pack.

I have also used the Dina Wakley washi - another love & must have item... 

My final touch was to add some Heidi Swapp timber words, Heidi Swapp - make pretty stuff epoxy stars,  cotton to layer under and a Heidi Swapp tag. 

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend getting messy & creating some awesomeness.

#elves - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Scrapping Clearly Lovelies!!

It's Karyn here, and today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of goodies from the Heidi Swapp Pineapple Crush collection available in the Scrapping Clearly Store.

For my base I've used a sheet of white cardstock. I added some background colour using Prima Watercolor Confections and a painting with plastic technique underneath in the area my photo.

I've matted my photo on papers from the HS Pineapple Crush 12x12 paper pad along with a paper doilie.I also added long strips of the patterned papers across the page, underneath the photo.

In the top right corner of the photo I've added a gold pineapple paperclip, some Studio Calico wood veneer and a sticker from the Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane collection. 

To the bottom left corner of my photo I've added more Studio Calico wood veneer.

Along the base of the page I've added strips of paper (from the Pineapple Crush collection). I've created a title with gold glitter alphas. I've added some paper flowers and word stickers a sticker from the Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by
