Today I have a fun patterned paper card to share using the new Cool As A Cucumber line from Jillibean soup and Hampton Art! I usually use patterned paper sparingly, but I decided to go all out on this card.

Smile layout by designer Patty Folchert

This playful every day layout uses very trendy triangles and the KI Memories Playlist collection partnered with a Vintologie stamp and stencil set.

Smile layout by Patty Folchert

I just realized that every project I created for Hampton Art this month utilized a stamp and stencil set, I just love them! For this layout I only used the stamps but the stencil with this set is a super fun chevron.  This layout begins with striped background and then two skinny border strips on top and one on bottom. Then I stamped the Hello, smile, Best Day Ever and camera images onto white cardstock in black ink. Those were set aside to dry and then four triangles of the same size were added cut from four complementing patterns of the KI Memories Playlist collection. Then one large triangle was cut out of the blue pattern. Next I cut the pink photo mat and added the family photo. 

The little banner in the top right was constructed using two more triangles and fussy cutting the “best day ever” stamped piece into a pennant shape.  The other stamped pieces were fussy cut out and added to the page with adhesive or pop up dots as shown. The triangles were placed and the photo mat layered on. Some embellishments were added, the KI Memories Confetti flowers with white and silver glitter dots. 

This photo was taken on Super Bowl Sunday of this year and my family was so excited to have our team in championship game. The game didn’t go quite how we hoped, but it was still lots of fun. 

Still a Broncos Fan,

Vintage inspired card by designer Patty Folchert

I had to use some of my favorite items from a brand new Jillibean Soup product for this card. The Mix the Media items from the Ephemera Pack in green paired up so nicely with the Vintologie Stamp & Stencil set. Then I selected one of my favorite color combos just for fun, pink and green.
Bingo! card by Patty Folchert

I began with a fold open pink card base and the Vintologie stencil, using green ink I created the hexagon print. Then I used one of the butterflies from that collection in brown ink. Next I layered on the the Bingo Card, cork butterflies and treasure nametag, all from the new ephemera pack. The treasure nametag was also stamped with flourish stamp from the Vintologie set and brown ink in the corners. See close up below:

Last I added KI Memories glitter dots in brown and a wood button from the ephemera pack to finish the butterflies. That was all it took, a whimsical everyday card complete with stamping and stenciling.

Addicted to Stencils,

Art Journal page by designer Gini Williams Cagle

I have a beautiful art journal - well, the outside is gorgeous.  But I realized, I had only completed a couple of pages on the inside - so I decided it was time to do something about that.  And today, I'll share my first efforts with you.

Art Journal Page by Gini Williams Cagle

I primed my page with gesso.  After it was dry, I lightly sprayed it with water, and used an old credit card to spread out some blue paint.

I painted a darker blue paint on  Hampton Art's Fancy Facade (PS0817) and stamped it to add texture.

I cut stars from dictionary pages and glued them to the page and then traced around them with a charcoal pencil.

 Next, I used the Hampton Art chevron mask from Mod Greetings (SC0641) and the Honolulu Blue Sorbet.  I love this glossy, sparkly layer.

I stamped the sentiment, but cut the words apart and inked them and glued to the page. Finally, I misted over the page with the Colorations - Waimea Bay.  For a bit of contrast, I added dots of the Dimensional Crystal in Red Corvette.

Gift Bags by designer Gretchen McElveen

I recently had a couple of gifts to give friends but I ran into the problem of having nothing to wrap them in. 
Gift Bags by Gretchen McElveen

Scrapbooking supplies to the rescue! I did have these small cute paper bags I had picked up at Hobby Lobby a little while ago and decided to use some KI Memories patterned paper and Jillibean Soup embellishments to decorate them. Perfect! The “Playlist” patterned papers helped add some fun color the bags. I punched some butterflies and added a glitter dot to the center of each one. Then I finished off each bag with a button and a glitter alpha. Easy! And cheaper than most gift bags!

Thinking of You card by designer Lori Williams

Thinking of You with Botanical Tea by Lori Williams 
I’m a huge bee lover…if there is stamp set, paper collection anything that has bees on it, I have to have it.  So of course I love the Botanical Tea Stamp set as it has the most awesome bumble bee stamp and I used it on my card for today.    

I used the Botanical Tea coordinating paper collection and started off with a 6 x 6 base with inked edges.  Next I cut a 5 ¾ x 5 ¾ designer paper squared, inked and attached to the base for layering.  The postage stamped border were cut from the paper and then attached with foam tape.  I cut a die cut square out and lined up in the middle of the card.  Then I cut out the postcard middle of the paper and stamped my Thinking of You sentiment in the middle.  Next I stamped the much loved bumble bee on cream colored card stock and fussy cut out.  I had to attach the bee with foam tape because I wanted him to look like he had just landed.  I inked the edges of the little postcard and then glued down on the die cut to finished it all off.  
Here are the stamp sets from the Botanical Tea collection that I used on this project: IC0297, IC0298
