I’ve got a good lot of projects to share with you today which I made using the ‘Over the Rainbow’ card making kit. All extra supplies, such as inks etc will be listed as and when I tell you more about each project.
The heart image is stamped with Jenni Bowlings Chewing Gum ink pad and hand cut. The best thing about the PPS kits, for me at least, are the stamps they come along with. and so far I’ve loved the stamps the kits have come with. And yes. I have hand stitched the pattern paper for the very first time.. and honestly I loved the technique.. so watchout.. you may just see me use this technique a lot here on my blog!!
I have distressed the Hero Arts Eggshell Layering Paper with Mustard Seed distress ink. The punches used were MS Doily and EK Success Open Scallop Edge Punch. And hey.. how cute is that mini clothes pin?
On this one I used the American Crafts Knock Outs scalloped lace punch. How cool is that? I always like to experiment a lot with my punches and try and come out with something new. When I came up with this idea of using the punch to get an around the page cut out.. it was a Eureka moment for me! *winks* I might just have a tutorial for you guys on the same at PPS.. so watch out for it at PPS Blog!
That cute button birdy is a trick I found in the Scrapbook and Cards Magazine. Cute, eh? All the other elements such as the rose brad and the butterfly are from the kit.
This is a more of a CAS card. The Dear Lizzy NEAPOLITAN Fresh Blooms pattern paper was so pretty that I couldn’t think of a better way to show them off.
I hand cut the card into a semi circle and then used the Jenni Bowlin Lemon Drops paint dabber to distress the edges wee bit.
To create the background on this one, I’ve used the Hero Arts Zig Zag stamp bought from Pretty Paper Studio. It can be used in so many ways, and it adds that subtle pattern and direction. I truly adore this stamp!! I used the Jenni Bowling Chewing Gum and Lemon Drop inks to stamp the background. I love how they’ve named their colors.. like.. Chicken Feed, Soap Powder.. etc.. Hehe.. How cute is that? The colors are very fresh and trendy as well. They dry very quickly and doesn’t smear even a bit! You’ve gotta check them out here.
No no.. not all those roses are from the kit. Unless PPS wants to buy them from me.. 😉 The pink ones are my handmade roses and the pretty blue one is a brad from the kit which I thought went very well with my flowers.
I really had a fun time playing with the kit… and glad i was able to share it with you girls!
Do lemme know what you think?
