Hello crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you today, sharing a trio of cards I’ve created for Fancy Pants Designs.
I’ve used the wonderful The Bright Side collection on these cards. They are really simple and quick to make! I made three A2 top folding card bases from heavy weight white card stock. Then I adhered a different A2 size patterned paper to all of these.
For the first one I die cut 2 oval shapes using some Spellbinders dies. At this point I didn’t know yet what sentiment I will add, so when I opened the ephemera pack and found this oval die cut I was overjoyed! I love happy accidents like this! To add a bit of dimension, I added foam sheets between two of the oval layers. To finish it off, I glued some puffy sticker hearts and a die cut bird on the ovals. I used foam tape to attach the bird.
On the next card I cut a piece off the Natural Beauty paper, which has a beautiful flower bouquet on it. I cut it in a way that the bouquet was on the left side of my card. Then I picked out some of the die cut flowers from the ephemera pack as well as some leaves, a frame and a sentiment and played around with the arrangement. I decided to use foam adhesive on the frame and on the flowers. I glue down the leaves first, then the frame, then added in the flowers. To finish off the card I adhered my sentiment, again using foam adhesive, and attached a bow I made of the twin that comes in the tags set.
I really wanted to use these super cute cups on a card because I knew I wasn’t going to use them on a layout. It would have been a shame if they had gone to waste! There’s 3 in the ephemera pack, but once I stacked them on top of each other, they were not tall enough, so I took a 4th one from another ephemera pack. I used foam adhesive to attach these to the card front. One of the cups has The Good Stuff written on it and I thought that would be perfect for my sentiment! I added two die cut pinwheels at the top, just for fun! For finishing touches I used some puffy sticker dots and a chipboard piece.
You really don’t need a lot of supplies to create these cards! I hope I could inspire you in one way or the other!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
Zsoka back with you today sharing my newest layout I’ve created for Fancy Pants Designs!
I remembered using a specific cut file about 2 or so years ago but for the life of me I could not find it, I have no idea whose design it was. So I just went ahead and made my own in the Silhouette Studio program – it’s basically just triangle shapes arranged in a circle.
I cut this from one of the patterned papers, then backed the rays with different patterned papers from The Bright Side collection. I also added some machine stitching in the middle of the rays.
I created one cluster in the middle of the page, so it is a very simple design. I felt like otherwise the page would have been too busy. I layered tissue paper, tags, die cuts behind my photo and glued these down. I then added different embellies around and on top of my photo: labels, chipboard stickers, die cuts. For some interest I added a die cut photo frame too and my title also comes from the die cut ephemera pack.
To finish off my page I glued down some colourful puffy sticker dots!
I hope you like this simple idea!
Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a great day!
See you soon!
Mary-Ann here today with a black, yellow with a touch of green layout to share. A yellow T-shirt calls for yellow in the layout, don’t you think? My little man tried and tried to blow up this water balloon. This is about as far as he got. He was defeated and so were his cheeks. I love how the pictures captures his struggle and also his determination to get it done. I think you can see his frustration a little too.
I love the speech bubbles. I used small alphas to incorporate an encouraging message.
I love to layer. Layering this tags helped me bring in all the colors that I was using in the layout over to the left. Using different shapes brought in depth.
A couple little journaling strips, telling the story and my layout was complete!
So you can see from this layout and my previous one, earlier in the month, that The Bright Side Collection can be used for of all types of ideas and projects! What are you using yours for? Be sure to tag us online so we can see!! Instagram: @fancypantsdesigns
