Echo Park Here and Now Card

Hi everyone,

I recently created a scrapbook layout class out of some papers and stickers from the Echo Park Here and Now collection and had some things left over so I decided to make a card.  I took one of the 4×6 cards from the paper and designed my card from there.  I added a chevron border sticker and trimmed off the excess.  Stamped my sentiment using jet black archival ink and added some stickers, pearls, brad, Maya Road pin and some twine.  I distressed the edges of the white card and the paper to give the card some extra texture and mounted the papers using foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by,




Supplies: White Card, Jet Black Archival Ink, Echo Park Here and Now – papers and sticker sheet, twine, brad, pearl, Maya Road Pin, Stamp – Flourishes – Just My Type.

CASE Study #131

Hi everyone,

I am playing along with CASE Study again this week.  Last week I was lucky enough to have my card chosen as the winning card, which made my day!  The muse for this month is Julie Ebersole and you can see her card and the cards of the CASE study design team at the CASE Study blog here.  Although I used her card as inspiration, my card is not as bright and colourful since I wanted to use some of the flowers and bits that I had leftover from  Finnabair’s class.

I used some White Linen Dylusions Ink Spray with a Prima Stencil to make the background and stamped the Flourishes Sentiment with Snow Hero Arts Chalk ink.  I kept my layout relatively similar to Julie’s card but instead of using white paper to matt the panels I just swiped with edges with Picket Fence Distress Paint. I added a bit of the Picket Fence Distress Paint to the metal and the larger fabric flower.  I coloured a piece of leftover chipboard with gold paint and then put the card together.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great week.
