Pink Christmas Card

Hi everyone! I’m back on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog with this Pink Christmas card today. I’ve been having a lot of fun using non-traditional colors for my holiday cards. Are you the type that like to use traditional colors or that likes to break out of the mold?

Pink Christmas - papergrace - 11272016

The wreath is from Taylored Expressions 3 x 4″ Christmas Watercolor Panels (and right now they’re even on sale). I’m addicted to these panels. They’re awesome for beautiful watercolor projects and quick additions to a card.

I wanted to make this a Pink Christmas card because, really, it’s so unlike me. I am more apt to make a deep, dark card. Just being honest here. I don’t plan. I pick colors and patterns as I go. I’m sure that makes people nervous. But, it’s how I do things. It keeps the process more intuitive or organic for me.

I have noticed that I’ve been using pink a lot this year. I’m not sure what that means. Maybe I just need to hide the pink card stock and move on to a new color? ;)

The subtle glittery stripes are created by using the Home & Hobby Premium Double Sided 1″ Permanent Tape with clear glitter burnished on top. This effect is beautiful. And all of the lovely sequins are adhered with the Dodz Adhesive Dots Mini.

More of the process for making this card is on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog post for today with additional photos and supply information, so I hope that you’ll check it out.

Enjoy your day!

Always Remember

Memorial Day is a day to remember the fallen. To show respect, and to honor the brave men and women who DIED while in service to this great nation of ours. We need to always remember these brave souls. And that is what Memorial Day is all about. It’s one day of the year that is set aside to do exactly that. To pay our respects. 

I have a card today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to share my respects for those brave men and women. To say that we will always remember.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. — (Source: Wikipedia)

I created my own Flanders Field of poppies using this gorgeous stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Budding Poppies.

I stamped it once, masked off one of the poppies and stamped it again. This creates a look of dimension and there being more when there isn’t any. The coloring was all done with Distress Markers, which I used as watercolors.

The sentiment (which I LOOOOOVE) comes from another Technique Tuesday stamp set called Poppy Sentiments and is one of my all time faves. I just love this stamp set with my whole heart. My dear friend Teri Anderson designed it and the sentiments in this set are the BEST…along with the poppies, of course.

As for me, I know that I will always remember those that came before me and laid their lives on the line so that I could live in a free country. I am so proud to live in a country like ours. We have so many wonderful opportunities and we have to give thanks where they are due.

Wherever you are, I hope that you will bow your heads in a moment of silence and remember…

Thanks a Latte

I’m up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today with this Thanks a Latte card featuring some really awesome Donna Salazar products!! It’s so fun using mixed media products on cards and Donna has a great line of products with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. Twine, tissue tape, pigment powders, ribbons, a denim art journal and so much more! Check out her full line HERE.

The Thanks a Latte stamp set with the coffee cup and sentiment is part of a set : Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Oh Frappe.  Being the coffee lover I am, it’s one of my favorites. ♥ I want to use it every day. But, that would be weird.

If you have a coffee lover in your house? This stamp set and coordinating die-set is a MUST have!

Here’s my little sneak peek of today’s card, with the full tutorial on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3l® blog.

It’s late at night and just “typing” typing the word latte makes me crave coffee…I AM SO BAD!! Hahha!!

Anyway! This card has a lot of super cute elements going on. The patterned paper is from Pebbles and is really fun. I used a die-set from Pretty Pink Posh to make the scalloped circle. I just adore it so much!  The coffee cup itself was water-colored. Wait…I’m giving all my secrets away! ;)

I really do hope that you’ll enjoy this card as much as I had fun MAKING it. I can’t wait to give it to my friend with a Starbucks gift card to tell her… “Thanks a Latte”. :D Now go grab a coffee.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love Always

Hello! I have a brand new card up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that I’m excited to share with you.  I’m using the January Greenhouse Society Set – Crocus from Technique Tuesday  which includes the sentiment, “Love Always” in a beautiful font.

Of course, this is just a sneak peek of the card. There is MUCH more to see for this “Love Always” card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog, so you’ll really want to go there to check out the whole kit and kaboodle (whatever that means anyway!).

I used a few different dies, some very pretty (and NEW!) patterned paper, and one of the lovely new pigment powders that Donna Salazar just released at this past CHA for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. Oh! And I also used her Girlie Grunge Art Medium. Fun stuff!

It’s a pretty card so I hope that you’ll make your way over to their blog.  Love always….

Let’s Cuddle

I have a new card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today, appropriately called “Let’s Cuddle” since I used a super cute sentiment of that name to make it. 

And did you know how hard it is to make a card when you don’t feel good? Well, let me raise my hand high in the air to tell you all about it. Wish I could have dreamed up a card and had it come to fruition instead. The sweet Die-Namics mittens and “Let’s Cuddle” stamp from My Favorite Things kind of saved the day. And, of course, along with all of my yummy adhesives from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and the pretty patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye, the card didn’t take too long. (Even with frequent breaks.)

I hope you like how it turned out:

Cute, huh? And doesn’t the patterned paper remind you of a warm, fuzzy sweater?

Even though I tend to be more of a non-traditionalist when it comes to Christmas and color I think that this is fun, especially with the grey.

This card is easy enough to make that it could be mass produced…if you wanted to. I think for me I’d still have to go with funkier colors personally, but it sure is cute. And if you know someone who needs a cuddle or if YOU do? This card is perfect. :) Don’t forget to check out the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog for more info and details.
