Bits and Pieces

I finally finished the card samples for the Local King Card Class at Art 'n Soul. Hopefully we'll be able to set the class date tomorrow.

This is a die that I've been wanting to use for many months. I used several colors of card stock to run through the machine so I would have multiple colors to work with.

Die-namics, Lawn Fawn, Stampotique, IMAGINE Crafts, Tsukineko, Pretty Pink Posh, Ranger

Cut the Abstract Cover-Up die using various colors of card stock. Decide which colors you want for the outside frame, the inside frame, and the colored pieces.

Adhere all of the pieces with a fine needle-nose tipped bottle of liquid adhesive (I used Glossy Accents). Place the inside frame down first. Then adhere the outside frame around it. Fill in the open spots with the matching shape.

Stamp the sentiment onto kraft card stock; cut with the banner die. Cut another banner die with a contrasting color (I chose the same color as the inside frame). Adhere to card base

Apply sequins.

Die-namics Abstract Cover-Up Die MFT-688

Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners Die Set LF1139

Stampotique stanp "Bits and Pieces"

IMAGINE Crafts Electric Pink Pigment Ink by Tsukineko NB-74

Pretty Pink Posh Springtime Mix & Halloween Mix Sequins

Ranger Glossy Accents in needle-nose fine tip bottle

Pop Tone 65# Card Stock from The Paper Cut (various colors)

Kraft 80# card stock

Conqueror 118# Cover Card Stock in Diamond White (base A6 card)

I placed the inside frame down first because it was the most stable. I'm not sure the outside frame would have held straight lines because it was so flimsy to hold by itself. The various colored shapes fit together just like puzzle pieces. I now have a box of the left-over die cut pieces to make more color combinations.

That's all for tonight! Thanks so much for stopping by to visit; your visit is always appreciated.
