More Soda Pop Tops

Pin It
This is the card we did for the make 'n' take at Melissa'a party.
This was my sample card, I made it a sympathy card.
 I cased this from Sharlene Meyer, she did hers in the pinks.
Check out her one HERE.
 We used Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Pack.
It's a great pack perfect for card makers 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 designs.
We used the small Soda Pop Top as a feature alongside Collage Curios Stamp Set. 
 Here is another card, very similar.
I changed the sentiment.
I flattened the Soda Pop Top, then filled it with Crystal Effects.

Soda Pop Tops

Pin It
I have very much enjoyed playing with the 'Soda Pop Tops" for the Seasonal Catty on page 24.
You get 8 large and 8 small for $8.50.
Last Saturday I had a Party at Melissa's, I featured these.
Here are the Hostess and Door Prize gifts I made.
They are simple pouches with Jaffas inside.
To make the tag I squashed a large Soda Pop Top through the Big Shot, used Collage Curios Stamp Set that works so well with the Tops.
I used Crystal Effect to fill the centre, I used my 1 1/6th punch then threaded Bakers Twine and attached to a ribbon.
 I used Very Vanilla Card Stock, Real Red Ribbon, Old Olive, Early Espresso Ink.
I also used VersaMark Ink on the card stock to get a watermark effect.
 Because the ink and Crystall Effects are both water based the image has blared a bit.
If you want a crisp image you heat emboss to seal it first.
 This the quick card I demonstrated the squashing of the top.
 I used the Print Party DSP Pack.
Have a great weekend

I'm Back

Pin It
Here is the second card I made yesterday.
I have used Rain or Shine Stamp Set from the Seasonal Cataloque.
I love this set it's so sweet.
This basically a case from out the catty.
I have added a Tempting Turquoise base to my card and a freehand frame.
I used my markers to ink 'thoughts of you' then cleaned it then inked the 'rain or shine' which is one stamp.
I have had a very busy day today, I have been out collecting census papers and worked in the uniform shop at Mountainview High School, so no crafting has been achieved today.
I need to do some more tomorrow.
So I might see you again tomorrow (I will try anyway).
Goodnight all.
