november paradise club scrap blog hop

hi all, welcome to the club scrap paradise bloghop! if you are hopping along with us then you are here from the talented josette's blog. if you get lost along the way start at the beginning at Karen's post. this kit is so pretty I just had a blast playing with these colors and stamps! I just loved the watercolor effect on the palm patterned paper and sorta ran with that adding pops of black around the page to help it pop. My diy diecuts are all stamps from the deluxe paradise kit as well as all the papers, cutaparts, buttons ribbon,and that cool parrot charm.

12 x 12 page

the parrot waa lil too shiny for my page so I rubbed some black cs ink on it to tone it down

next is hetty's blog you are sure to be inspired

stamps slid a little on the washi so make sure you pull stamp straight up for a clean image- I did get a lil double image on the second palm leave but I decided to make it work I like the imperfections
thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!!

Club scrap November team challenge

Hi all , If you are hopping along with us welcome from Hetty's blog. if you get lost along the way start here with Karen at club scraps blog. today i am here to share with you a page i made for the club scrap team challenge. Here is the challenge: 

So for my 12 x12 page i used the once upon a time stamp from the enchanted forest stamp set and the floral cluster from the girlfriends stamp set that of which i stamped onto white cardstock and fussycut out. I then added them around and on my photo and accented then with some sparkle stickers. The background i made from the papers from the november paradise deluxe kit. I cut long triangles from the different bright papers using the shirt i am wearing in the picture as inspiration and sewing machine stitched them down.

Write out your own title

Can't find the write ( get it) letters to make a title ?! .. just write it out on cardstock and cut it out. I used my @tombowusa beginner lettering set the write it out i used the small calligraphy pen for the small words and the black dual brush marker for the larger words then i added shadow to the letters with the grey dual brush marker. Don't stress if letters aren't perfect , i don't . It is a about having fun creating. #tombow #tombowusa #dualbrushmarkers #makeyourowntitle #papercrafting #scrapbooking  #letteringset #justwrite #tombowbrandambassador #beginner

Goto : to get you lettering set and get playing 

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Club scrap technique challenge

Hi all,  I am super excited to be hosting the technique challenge this month at the club scrap blog 

And guess what?! 
I want your fingers to get a lil painty this challenge. 
Grab your clear acrylic stamping block ( any size ya have and give these ideas a try) . Don't have a acrylic stamping block?no problem... grab a piece of clear food wrap, wax paper or plastic packaging and play with your paints the same way with them. I love the random artsy backgrounds the paints make . It is a great way to make a custom color your paper and use up those kit bits leftover from old projects. On my card and page i used my leftover bits from the dahlia kit and the picture of my daughter laying on the grass making a smiley face with her body and our yard balls.she is so cute.. right?!  
So to start i grabbed me pieces of white card stock and different water based/ water-reactive paints and just scribbled,rolled, and wet the paints a lil and stamped. So fun!!! Let my pics show ya the rest. So grab your paints and play along and be sure to link them up here because we want to see your awesome cards, scrapbook pages and paper-craft projects using this technique. Share your and link it up on the club scrap blog here:

Warning picture overload .. lol! 

Prima oil pastels with water sprayed on ( gelatos and distress crayons work great too) 

Pearlescent wAtercolor paints and water-brush 

Pink and lavender acrylic paint and brayer

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
