I do hope you are all enjoying the start of this bank holiday weekend! Looks like a wet one for us in Staffordshire so I hope you will enjoy some sunshine where you are, even if we don't. This post is a very belated one mainly due to me doing a lot of playing with the wonderful contents of the March Artful Days Goodie box, rather than developing the 'playing' into 'making'. Following the art journal page I blogged in a previous post, I decided to use the contents again to make some greetings cards. My stash is sorely depleted so I really needed to use the contents to make a variety of cards. I love the theme for this Goodie box and this was my theme for my cards.
And even closer...
This is the one I entered into the challenge!
Having used the Scrapiniec Large Circle Frame so manytimes as a stencil, it was now beautifully 'patina'd' to use on a card as well. It's colour determined the colours I needed to use with the Infusions.
I used: A Little Bit Jaded, Golden Sands and Emerald Isle Infusions for this background. The stamped image is from quite an old Hot Picks PaperArtsy stamp set: HPXT02. I stamped the dotted circles background stamp (from Indigo Blu) around the circle frame with Archival ink.
I only needed to add a few metal charms and some of the yellow gems to complete the image. Now it just needed to be layered up. Now for a complete switch to some different products from the Goodie Box to make the next cards!
How cute are these mini Amsterdam paints in two gorgeous complementary colours, and a Ranger Blending tool! I have no idea how Julie packs in so many delicious products for this price: £21.99!
It's pretty easy to see what I did here. I added die cut poppies and an ornate panel (from Memory Box) on top of the circles I had dabbed onto a card panel, then added some of the metal embellishments and sparkling gems.
Very simple, clean cards.
So there we are! A host of cards and still heaps of product left in the March Goodie Box. Subscriptions and more information can be found Here. Hmm I wonder what I will make next? Thankyou for stopping by. I'd love to know your thoughts. Until next time.
