{Sun} Sweets: Club Scrap Technique Challenge LO + Sunflowers

Sunday, September 11, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Happy Grandparents' Day! =)

I'm liking the idea of working ahead...I'll meet with a childhood friend of mine (+ a couple more) in November, so I created this 2-page layout, inspired by Club Scrap's September Technique Challenge - using sketches and/or converting them to either card or scrapbook (click HERE to see it)...

I used a sketch from RetroSketches #230, that I used for a card last week (check this POST):


Of course, I flipped it to the right (for the left page) and mirror flipped it (for the right page)...I added some die cut butterflies (SU!) in addition to supplies from Club Scrap Dahlia Kit (papers, Embellishment Cutaparts, Washi Tape, Round Kraft Tags and White Jewel Dazzles).

For my next card, I used the card sketch from Club Scrap's September Technique Challenge post:

I used Garden Shed papers, ribbon and butterfly stamp (Art Nouveau unmounted stamps).
Embossed paper panel was die cut using Stitched Rectangles (The Stamps of Life). I added a flower and pearl center. I die cut the circles (Spellbinders), watercolored the butterfly and decided to use sequins instead of branches...

And just for fun...a one-layer card for a few challenges:

I visited The Sunflower Garden last weekend and I'm obsessed with sunflowers! I stamped the sentiment (Garden Shed Greeting unmounted stamps) and masked the area with a paper strip. I stamped sunflowers border along the edges of the strip, masking some flowers here and there. Then, I doodled some lines (with gold gel pen) and added Dimensional Magic Glitter Gold in sunflowers' centers.
