LO and Card to Share

Hi Ladies,

Have been having problems with blogger and am hoping this post works... cross fingers!!

I have a LO and card to share created using a Craft Queen Scrapbooking LO Kit.

Always Remember This
This pretty kit has a red, pink, grey and cream colour theme, which I think has a bit of a Valentine's feel to it.  The pink and cream pp has a heart design which I altered with gesso, misting, masking, stamping and punching on the edges. I fussy cut and layered the MME doily pp and cut my photos in a circular design to blend in.  The chipboard title was coated with gesso, inked around the edges then highlighted with little torn strips of washi tape.  I printed the title words on white cardstock from my stash and altered with washi tape.  Finished off with some sweet wooden buttons and doilies, and trim from the kit.

Shabby card
There was enough left over in the kit to make a card.  I cut a large square from the centre of the kraft cs to reuse on the card, as you only see the edges of the kraft cardstock on the LO.

I masked the card with gesso, added a few mist splats and randomly stamped with a script stamp, then layered some of the remaining fussy cut doilies.  The greeting was printed on cream c/s from my own stash, or you could stamp a greeting in the large fussy cut doily.  Some pretty trims and embellishments from the kit to finish off.

Product Used:  Craft Queen Scrapbooking Kit, Crafters W/shop mask, Glimmermist, Glitz Design stamp, gesso, EK Success border punch, white and cream cardstock. Tim Holtz distress ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
