G45 French Country Something Old Challenge

Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge: G45 French Country Spoonful of Gratitude Card

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  Our hostess this go round is the one and only Jenny Marples.  I broke out my Graphic 45 French Country paper collection along with an oldie but a goodie from my stash for this Something Old Challenge.

Something Old Challenge Guidelines from Our Hostess Jenny
I’m sure, like me, there will be lots of you who love all things vintage and enjoy nothing more than discovering old and unwanted treasure at thrift shops and junk markets. The challenge this time is to use something old either as the basis of your project or as an addition to your vintage or shabby chic creation.

An Old Spoon and a Favorite Old Paper Collection

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 1

My  “Something Old” is this vintage silver spoon.  And, this is the last of my stash from my beloved Graphic 45 French Country Collection.  But…have you heard the news?  French Country is being re-released in a Deluxe Collector’s Edition.  You can pre-order it now at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2To create this rustic, aged look on your papers, use a distressing tool along the edges.  Then create little puddles of Distress Oxide ink on your non-stick craft mat and tap the paper into them.  I actually spritzed some of these papers with my Distress Sprayer, then crumpled them up to age them.

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3Texture also helps to create a rustic, vintage feel on a card.  So I added burlap, burlap string bows, and custom colored Petaloo Burlap Flowers.

The Star of the Show

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 4

The star of the show is this old silver spoon.  Like many of you, I love to go junkin’.  A while back, my dear husband (who is very good about indulging my obsessions) and I popped into a flea market that was going out of business.  And that is where I found this gorgeous old silver sugar spoon.  It is stamped on the back, which leads me to believe it is real silver.  I thought about polishing it up before using it on this card, but I decided I really liked the tarnished look.  It goes so well with these gorgeous vintage papers from Graphic 45.  To prepare it for this card, I simply used ribbon to tie on this tag, then added a little burlap string bow and a sunflower.

A Hidden Tag Pocket

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 5While I was fussy cutting the post card image from the signature page of the collection, I had the thought to create a hidden tag pocket on the front of the card.  This is such a simple thing to do, but adds so much fun to a card.  Simply stitch the post card to a piece of burlap leaving the top edge open.  Instant pocket!

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 6This G45 Staples ATC Laser Cut Ivory tag afforded me an opportunity to get in a little Distress Oxide playtime.  The base color is Fossilized Amber which I accented with Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Fired Brick to pick up on the colors in the designer paper.  Then I stamped the tag with my new Carabelle Carte Postale Stamp to add another layer of fun.  For a little bling, I tied this Live, Laugh, Love brass charm onto a French Country Chipboard Tag.  After gluing the chipboard to the tag, I backed it with a scrap of black designer paper to really make the laser cut sentiment pop.

A Peek Inside

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 7

I added more pockets to the inside of this 5″ x 7″ top fold card.

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 9Paper scraps make great pockets!

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 10And pockets are a great place to tuck in a tag!  After die cutting this tag from Kraft Cardstock, I covered it with designer paper.  Use sharp tiny scissors like Tim’s Mini Snips to fussy cut the sunflowers from the signature page.  Then adhere them to the tag base with Distress Collage Medium.  Every single little area is firmly adhered, but there is no glue residue.  And I love the way these Gilded Accents Rub Ons compliment the designer paper.   You can custom color this Petaloo Anemone with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist and Distress Bronze Mica Spray.

Spoonful of Gratitude Card French Country by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Something Old Challenge Product by Graphic 45 Photo 11The lower pocket holds an herbal teabag, a honey stick, a little chocolate treat and a recipe card that I aged with Tea Dye and Old Paper Distress inks.

Wouldn’t this card make a great hostess gift?

Now It’s Your Turn!

You can play along in this Something Old challenge by linking up your vintage or shabby chic project over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  The challenge remains open until  11:59PM EDT on Tuesday, June 6th to link up.  All the guidelines and details are available on the Frilly and Funkie blog.

Bee Yourself Honeybee Greeting Card

BEE Yourself Honeybee Greeting Card with Petaloo Posies and G45 Nature Sketchbook

Hello, Friends!  I have such a fun, cheery card to share with you today!  This Bee Yourself Honeybee Greeting card just bursts with happy colors, beautiful papers and bodacious blooms.

I’m in love with Petaloo International’s gorgeous Botanica Blooms.  They look so lifelike you can almost smell their sweet bouquet when you use them on a project.  Combine these beautiful blooms with Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook paper and a digital image from Polly’s Paper Studio, and you can color me happy, happy, happy!

This is my standard 5″ x 7″ top fold card made on a kraft cardstock base.  To deepen the color of the Botanica Blooms I gave them a couple spritzes of Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist.  I did the same with the sweet little Ivory Canvas Sunflower on top of my ribbon cluster.

Inside, I’ve added all sorts of wonderful goodies.

Herbal Tea and a Honeystick go perfectly with this themed card.

And why not tuck in a sweet tag and fun little tags to complete the ensemble?

I hope this BEE Yourself Honeybee Greeting card added some sunshine to your day.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Wishing you a honey of a day!

Cheerio,

Laundry Day Card with Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home

Laundry Day Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon with Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home

Hello, Ribbon lovers!  In my world, nothing smells so sweet as freshly washed sheets that have hung on the line.  The beautiful spring weather and  memories of my mom prompted me to make this Laundry Day card with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Graphic 45’s Home Sweet Home collection.  It brings back so many happy childhood memories!

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 1If you never had the joy of hanging freshly washed laundry on the line on a gorgeous spring day, then you have missed out on one of life’s greatest pleasures.  With the blue sky over your head and a playful breeze blowing while cheeky little birds sing their hearts out it’s truly a feast for the soul!  I tried to capture the joy of the experience in this 5″ x 7″ top fold laundry day card.

It’s All About the Layers on this Laundry Day Card

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2This card is all about the layers!  I layered up several prints and patterns, as is my usual course of action.  But I also layered up the focal image.

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3

To do this, first create a layer with the entire image.  Next, fussy cut a second image, ink the edges and back it with small foam tabs.  Then carefully line the fussy cut image up with the original and press in place.  I love the way this causes the image to pop off the page.

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 4You can create layers with ribbon, too!  For this card, I created a double layer bow with the Electric Blue Taffeta ribbon from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  I topped it with a bright and cheery Yellow Plaid double loop bow.  Then I added some pretty red and blue blooms to go with the fussy cut hollyhocks from the paper collection.

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 5This miniature wooden washboard is layered on top of a journal tag from the paper collection.  I draped it with a snippet of Red Plaid Ribbon and a fussy cut border image.  The Red Plaid Ribbon also serves as a border at the top of the card.

Pockets and Tags and Sweet Treats Inside this Laundry Day Card

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 6I love to create cards that can double as gifts, so I generally add pockets and tags and treats to the inside.  The miniature green clothespin holds a tiny folio shut.

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 7To create this, I simply cut the strip of images from the border page in Home Sweet Home.  Then I scored between each image.  Next I accordion folded the strip so that the tomato image is on top.  It would be fun to write either a personal note or a recipe on the ephemera card.

Laundry Day Card Home Sweet Home by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Graphic 45 Photo 8The lower pocket contains a tea bag and an individually wrapped chocolate.  There’s plenty of room to tuck in a gift card, too.

Sadly, we are not allowed to hang clothes out on the line in my new neighborhood.  But I still have the sweet memories from hanging clothes on the line with my mom.  Do you use a clothesline?  I’d love to hear your Laundry Day story in the comment section below.

RRR Blog Hop: God Bless America Card

God Bless America Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  It’s May 13th, and that means it’s time for another fabulous Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  If you get off track, go back to the RRR BLOG where you’ll find a complete list for the hop.  We are heading right into the summer holidays, so it’s time to break out the red, white and blue ribbons from the May Patriotic Ribbon Club assortment and get your craft on.  I’ve made this God Bless America card using every single ribbon in the assortment.

I don’t know what it is about combining red, white and blue, but it sure works!  Here’s a look at the ribbons in this month’s club.

 

United We Stand

God Bless America Card United by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Photo  2This 5″ x 7″ top fold card is made with Authentique’s brand new “United” paper collection.  I layered some of these fabulous ribbons to create a belly band for my card.  Ribbon is a great way to create a quick border, and as you can see, I did that on the base of this card front. I also created a fun paper clip embellishment with a snippet of ribbon and a metal button.

God Bless America Card United by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Photo 3

Now, let’s talk about the bow!  I tied two colors of ribbon at the same time on my Bow-it-All tool.  Then I topped the bow with a flashy red flower and a star shaped stick pin.

True Blue Through and Through

God Bless America Card United by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Photo  4The inside of the card has another belly band and a double pocket that contains a stack of little journal cards.  These can hold photos, or be used as bookmarks, or for journaling.

God Bless America Card United by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Product by Authentique Photo 5Raise your hand if you had to memorize the Pledge of Allegiance when you were in school.  Do they still do that?  We started with the Pledge every single morning, and I love that Authentique included it in this collection.  I also tucked a little chocolate treat inside the belly band.

Now hop on over and see what Cherry has cooked up with this fabulous ribbon assortment.  And be sure to visit the RRR Blog and let Bonnie know that you completed the hop so you can be entered to win your very own Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment.

Thanks for hopping by!

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial

Tammy Tutterow Creative Team Friday: Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Do you like to make your own flowers?  I find it to be relaxing and rewarding all at the same time.  For this installment of Tammy Tutterow Creative Team Friday, I have made a Shabby Posies thank you card tutorial.  This beauty is adorned with a cascade of beautiful handmade Shabby Posies roses, a textured background that you can make yourself, and patterned papers that I rescued from the Closet of Shame.  Let’s get started!

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 1

This 5″ x 7″ top fold card is made with Prima’s retired Stationer’s Desk collection.  Retired collections are too beautiful to leave languishing away The Closet of Shame!

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial Part 1:Creating the Background Layer

Do you see the pretty textured background layer?  I made this with Tammy’s Picnic embossing folder and her wonderful Big Fabric Background Stamp. Here are the steps I followed.

  • Cut a 4.75″ x 6.5″ panel of smooth white cardstock.
  • Stamp the surface in Pumice Stone Distress Ink using the Big Fabric Background Stamp.
  • Heat Emboss with clear powder.
  • Rub Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink on the flat side of the embossing folder. (This is the surface that has the Spellbinders logo imprinted on the front.)
  • Use a Distress Spray Bottle to lightly mist the cut cardstock.
  • Place the cardstock misted side up on the bottom half of the embossing folder.
  • Run through your die cutting machine following manufacturer’s directions.
  • Spritz and flick with water.  Heat dry.
  • Use a blender tool to rub Pumice Stone DI over the embossed areas.  Spritz and Flick again.
  • Heat set. The embossed stamping will pop through the ink, which is very cool.
  • Distress Edges
  • Machine Stitch onto a slightly larger panel of designer paper.
Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial Part 2: Creating the Layers

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 2Now it’s time to create the lovely layers for this card.

  • Cut 3 tags from designer paper using Tammy’s Shortie Tag Die.  Set one aside for later.
  • Ink the edges of the tags with Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.  Spritz lightly to activate the ink.
  • Mount the tags on foam tabs.  To save money, I cut up Priority Mail boxes and use them instead.  Not only do I save money, but I repurpose an item that would normally end up in the recycling bin!
  • Add a brad to one tag and glue in place as seen in this photo.
  • Stagger the second tag and glue on top.
  • Next, I added a couple of tags from the Stationer’s Desk collection on top of this tag.
  • Now, use the pennant shaped die from Tammy’s Shortie Tabs to cut 3 little banner flags from scraps.  Glue these in place at the base of the tag that’s on the bottom
Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial Part 3: Creating the Shabby Posies Roses

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 3The Shabby Posie Die is probably my favorite floral die from Tammy.  It is so versatile.  For this card, I die cut my flower layers from patterned paper.  I love the depth and dimension this adds to a finished flower.  Best of all, it makes quick work of the flower making process.

Here’s how I made these Shabby Posies Roses.

  • Cut three sets of Shabby Posies from patterned paper.
  • Using the leaves from  Pom Pom Posies cut 2 sets of the double leaf die and one of the single leaf die.
  • Use a sponge dauber to add Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink to the center and around the edges of each flower layer.
  • Lightly spritz the back of each flower layer.  This helps to break down the fibers in the paper, making it easier to shape the petals.  It also helps the layers to hold their shape as they dry, since the water releases the starch within the paper.
  • Shape the flowers and leaves with a stylus and foam mat.
  • Use smaller layers to create a rosebud for the center of one flower.
  • Once the layers are dry (I use a heat tool) assemble with hot glue, firmly pressing a ball stylus into the center of each flower as you stack them.
  • Fill the centers of two roses with hot glue and fill with glass beads.
  • Glue onto the card as shown.
  • Add ribbon and a button.
Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial Part 4: Finishing the Inside

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 4

Finishing the inside of a card is just as important to me as creating the outside.  I love to make cards that can double as a gift.  So I add pockets, tags, mini envelopes…whatever little treats I can think of to make the card interactive and fun.

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 5I created a tag pocket on the top half of this card.

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 6Remember that 3rd Shortie Tag we cut way back at the beginning?  Here it is now.  I’ve inked the edges, double matted it on cardstock, then stamped it with Tammy’s gorgeous Thank You Stamp.

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 7

It’s just the perfect size to fit on the Shortie Tag and the design is perfect for this card. Stamp in Jet Black Archival Ink, then heat emboss with clear powder to make the design pop.  Then just add a brad and a dragonfly charm to complete the tag.

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 8The bottom half of the card interior has layered papers topped with a postcard that’s the perfect spot to write a personal note.  And who doesn’t love to open a sweet little Window Mini Pocket to see what is inside?

Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 9I’ve filled this one with a little tag from the paper collection.  It’s a great spot to write a note, tuck in a cash gift or any other little treat.

Be sure to stop by Tammy’s BLOG where you’ll find inspiration from the other amazing gals on the team.  I’m always blown away by the wonderful things they create with Tammy’s gorgeous designs.

I hope this Shabby Posies Thank You Card Tutorial has given you some ideas and tips that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Authentique “Fabulous” Collection: Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Card

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Card : Authentique “Fabulous” for Mom

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for a brand new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  And since it is almost Mother’s Day, that’s the challenge theme.  I decided to create something a little on the lighthearted and whimsical side as my mom was blessed with an amazing sense of humor.  I can remember hearing her sing Life is  Bowl Full of Cherries any time she was tackling an unsavory task (and boy,, do moms ever deal with more than their fair share of those!).  So I dug into my gorgeous ribbons and my “Fabulous” collection from Authentique to make this Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Card.

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 1

Rockin’ the Retro Vibe

Don’t you just love these retro colors and patterns?   This combination of pink, red and aqua takes me right back to my childhood.  It’s impossible to be gloomy when you are looking at white polka dots on a red background!

Here’s a good design tip for you.  To add extra “punch” to a card design, repeat a pattern.  On this card, I used white polka dots on red in both my paper layer and in my ribbon cluster.  Red Satin Swiss Dots ribbon is soft and supple, so it ties gorgeous bows.  If you haven’t added it to your ribbon stash yet, you really should!

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 2

Next, I scattered these cute cherry novelty buttons onto the card in strategic locations.  Then, I finished my bow cluster off with a bit of Ivory Burlap String and a bright aqua flower.

Just Add Pockets!

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 3

It’s easy to turn a card into a gift: just add pockets!  I created a small chocolate pocket with a scrap of that fun polka dot paper…because Mom loves chocolate, don’t you know.  Tuck in a gift card, and your gift is complete!

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 4Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 5

I stamped a sentiment onto ivory cardstock and added it to the larger pocket.  Then I tucked in a pretty pink tea bag.  Next,  I created a little tag that can double as a bookmark.

Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Mother's Day Card Fabulous by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Photo 6

You’ll find more of this fabulous ribbon atop the tag, along with a sweet little handmade paper clip embellishment.  Tie the ribbon with an ivory burlap string bow, add a sassy high heel charm and this Life is a Bowl Full of Cherries Card is done!
