Guest Designer Projects for D-lish Scraps

I had a great time creating with the gorgeous & versatile embellishments that Amanda sent me! Here are some of my initial projects:

First up, a layout - on my go-to carstock atm - kraft (LOVE) - & LOVED the fact that Amanda gave me embellies in predominantly brown/green/oranges - like these colours - green being my absolute favourite!!

This layout uses the AMAZING washi tape - LOVE it & SOOOO cheap - simply ripped & stuck on the kraft, & I pleated a little in the embellishment cluster bottom left, which alos featured a mix of resin flowers, velvet flowers & coolio buttons plus the great kraft journalling spot.  From my own stash, I used some Glitz , WRMK & Hambly stickers, Hambly transparency & a fab Scrapmatts title 'Happy'....oh & a Crate Paper journalling spot........I didn't use any patternened paper! Please go to the links below to find these great products at D-lish scraps:

Next up (above) is a little love note for an upcoming date night that I made & covered with one of the gorgeous kraft mini envelopes, that I misted , using a doily as the stencil (I used the Studio Calico white mist). I also used the fabulous rhinestone hearts which were clear/silver but I used red alcohol ink to colour  (veratility plus!)  a pin & a journal spot......links below:

A card is next where I used a gorgeous resin rose as a main feature - the colours went beautifully with some of the new MME papers in 6" pads, & I had an old vintage diecut (??Design Originals?) featuring a very nice celebratory drink!. I lightly inked a doily & used one of the gorgeous pins  & added some Tim Holtz elastic stuff (I call it garter 'coz I think it looks just like it) . Another pic is further down the post.......

I made a super quick card using some old stickers & the fabulous washi tape as a banner, - I simply looped it over some twine & cut with pinking shears! Done in 5 minutes flat. I also used some washi tape to make the grass - I doubled over a length & then used 1 of my fave Martha Stewart punches - it was easy to punch through too!

And lastly, another layout where I highlighted some of th embellishments using the fantastic retro circle buttons  that I threaded with black tapestry thread, & an essential date spot in kraft, of course. Other materials used included some Kaisercraft dressform rubons, Scrapmatts frame, & Websters paper

I have at least a couple of other projects in the pipeline which I will share ove the next 2 weeks including a mixed media piece which as been highly influenced by a recent book purchase.....more laters........

Love the top layout! Too cute. Great job with ruffling the tape and clustering embellishments
