CupCardsToGo Guest Designer
Today I am revealing my cards for a wonderful Guest Designership with CupCardsToGo.
Cassonda asked me over the summer to be a guest designer, and I was so thrilled!
Of course I wanted to join in.
And boy was I surprised when I saw the fabulous kit.
Beautiful, and my two favorite colors were predominant in it – Pinks and Oranges. Swoon!
These kits are fantastic, I have to tell you.
The papers are matched to various embellishments, ribbons, rub-on sentiments, buttons and more.
It’s all there for you, even card bases and envelopes!
This first card, I found the lovely flower on a piece of patterned paper and cut it out. But it was flat, so I gleefully crumpled it!
LOVE that dimension.
I layered patterned papers, cardstock and even used some of the pretty lace washi tape.
Then, I looped a ribbon, tied with twine, added my embellishments and the rub-on sentiment.
This card was inspired by the butterfly paper.
I cannot leave images on patterened paper alone.
I had to cut out some of the butterflies.
The corals and reds in the paper went well with the butterfly colors, so I added the tag, and made some rolled flowers with a bold black print.
After I added the loopy bow, I tucked some lace under the flowers and added a tag with the rub-on sentiment.
And I finished with some pearls and gems from the kit.
After I made the card, I had a couple leftover butterflies, and thought a matching tag would be perfect.
So I punched the bottom of the tag, added on the butterflies and a little paper, there was a black flower embellishment that I tucked in there too.
Then I added more of the rolled flowers, and added some fun buttons and ribbons, before adding my rub-ons.
This card has my heart, texture, color.
Ooooh, it’s got it goin’ ON!
First, I scrunched the paper flowers up, and glued them together. Don’t you just love that bow?
I tucked a little twine bow in there, then underneath added the two banner stickers.
I popped them up a bit for dimension.
Then I cut out those teeny little darling flowers and added them on. with the button.
I also used more washi tape, and added fake stitching to the edges. Cute!
Sketch Challenge -
I will share the sketch as soon as it goes up on CupCardsToGo.
However, here is my take on the sketch.
I used the cards that came in the kit, and cut out each image.
I added those to the center and popped them up.
I used another fabulous flower and cut it from the patterned paper then crumpled it and added leaves.
The sentiment is a rub-on that runs across top and bottom, so I added mine, then added a banner at the bottom.
Lastly – my card tutorial – make this fun card using the kit as well.
Step 1: Cut strips of black and green paper, attach to bottom of card base.
Step 2: Paint Butterflies with watercolor, allow to dry and adhere to front of card.
Step 3: Create bow with ribbon and twine, add button to middle of bow and attach to top of card.
Step 4: Use letter stickers ( Pink Paislee) and rub-ons to spell out greeting.
Step 5: Embellish with gems and paper strips.
