Wedding Bells

Today I’m sharing my latest design team project for The Crafty Scrapper. I made two cards using Authentique’s “Always” collection, which has beautiful papers and images for wedding projects. First up, is a wedding card I made using the Authentique papers (Always Two and Four), layered with some vintage papers to give this card a vintage, classic feel. I used an image from the collection (Always Seven) as the focal point, and added ribbon, tulle, stitching, and a flower.

Let’s take a closer look at those layers. Vintage sheet music, dress pattern tissue, and wallpaper give an aged look.

So, I promised two ways, right? Well, here is another card I made, using the same collection, with a completely different look.

This card uses papers from the same collection (Three and Four) that I pair...

For You Card

Today I’m sharing my latest design team project for The Crafty Scrapper. This month, I made a card with Prima’s beautiful new Tales of You and Me collection. I started with a shimmering pink Bazzill cardstock that I layered with an image from the Contes de Toi et Moi paper and a patterned piece from the backside of this paper.

I cut a spray of flowers from the Belles Melodies d’amour patterned paper and gave it some dimension with pop dots.

I added Diamond Stickles to the roses around the young maiden, and layered flowers from Prima’s Box Flowers – Documented Beauty and Tales of You and Me – Love Letters collection. The “For You” tag is also from the Box Flowers set.

A little seam binding ribbon is tucked behind the flowers to add more texture and softness.

Mother’s Day

While I was making my Easter cards a couple of months ago, I started thinking ahead to upcoming holidays – Mother’s Day being one of them. I used some of my pastel hued scraps to put together the base for this card.

Then I added a layer of sparkly tulle and several pink flowers. I dug through my stash of alpha stickers to find the perfect tiny letters in a complementary color.

ZunkyChic Christmas Card

I had very different plans for this year’s Christmas cards, but then I saw this very cool paper in the clearance section of my favorite scrapbook store, and I couldn’t resist. I knew I could make it look Christmas-y, and I loved the muted tones, which match so well with our holiday decor.

So, I got to work on a new design and here is what I came up with:

ZunkyChic Christmas Card

I used white cardstock for the base, layered the patterned paper with tulle, vintage sheet music, and wax paper that I tore into pieces.

I printed my vintage postcard image onto fabric and then stitched it on top. A stamped sentiment and some vintage mica flakes complete the frosty look.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here is another card that I made for this sweetest of days.

I again used felt, lace, and fabric for the background. I added a paper doily and an image that I’ve saved for years that I cut from an old calendar. I knew I’d have a use for it some day!
