Elizabeth Craft Designs April Challenge - Elegant & White

Guess what it's time for April's Challenge for Elizabeth Craft Designs  and this month's theme is Elegant & White. So here is my design using Karen Burniston's Accordion Fancy Label (771) 
You can find Karen demoing it here.
When I heard about our April challenge using white, I immediately thought of Wedding or Anniversary cards. So my parents are celebrating their 56th Wedding Anniversary in July, so I decided to make an Anniversary card using Karen's Accordion Fancy Label.

How to make this card:

1. Create card base using white paper and cut 3 frames using Accordion Fancy Label (771)
2. For each frame cut out the corresponding Fancy Frame Edge using light gold, white and white stripe paper as shown.

3. On 2nd frame apply transparent gold Peel Offs (sku 7010) on white scallop frame. On 3rd frame apply Glitter Holly Border Gold/Silver on gold scallop frame.
4. Cut out 3 frames using Accordion Fancy Label (771) cut it out leaving just the label using Butterfly Glitter paper by Best Creation. Apply to all 3 frames.
5. Take large label from the accordion fancy frame and cut Silver Shimmer Sheetz and run it thru Swirly Curves (E119) embossing folder. Apply to first frame as shown. Use the same die cut out label using White Velvet paper and run it thru Butterflies (KB119) embossing folder. Apply to second frame as shown here. Use the same die cut out label using White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz and run it thru embossing folder called Petal Power (E117). Apply to third frame as shown.
6. Cut 3 labels using the next size die using white, cream paper as shown.
7. Apply 1 large flower, 2 smaller flowers and 1 butterfly onto double sided adhesive. Apply Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Apply as shown using pop up dots.
8. Apply another small flower onto White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Apply to centre of large flower.

Thinking of You

 Well I'm back with another project for Elizabeth Craft Designs and this time I decided to do a scrapbook page to showcase how versatile these products are. This week is really a tough time for me, 6 years ago my husband passed away from Cancer. I had never done any scrapbooking about my husband usually it's just about the child and I found these old picture of him and his mom so here is the page. I'm not sure when this picture was taken but I think around 1945 or 1946. Anyways I really like the mix media craze that going around these days so I decided to let the texture roll.
 So I started off using this 'definition' paper from "Tattered Time" by DCWV  which I used  Soft Gel medium to apply definition paper to the white 130 lb card stock. I then took out the following The Crafter Workshop Stencils; TCW219 Punchinella, TCW 454 Specimen and TCW2030 Burlap Bits applied light modelling paste as shown. After it was dry, I sprayed the following colours using Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays using Gold. Copper and Brown.I then applied Copper and Brown Gold Inka Gold by Viva Decor to the raised portions of the stencils. I then used a black Stabilo pencil to highlight the textured of the paste. I also stamped some textures using Texture stamps from Dina Wakley collection using brown Archival ink by Ranger. I then started to layer various papers starting off with a dark brown paper, then a glassine envelope which was stamped using brown Archival ink and using the stamps from Dina Wakley 'Textures". Then I added a white resist paper by Prima Marketing along with kraft resist paper by Tim Holtz,  I put down the photo which I overlaid some taupe crochet trim. All papers were sponged using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then ran some gold metallic shimmer sheetz thru embossing folder called 'Damask' by designer Karen Burniston. Then I sanded the Gold Shimmer Sheetz down and used Timber Brown and Jet Black Stazon ink on the embossed areas. I then used a blank wood ATC blank which I cut it in half, part of it was cover using gold metallic shimmer sheetz. The other ATC part was embossed using an embossing folder called 'Swirly Curves' and then added some Brown Gold Inka Gold to highlight the embossed area as shown below.
I cut out Daisy flowers using the Big Flowers Set 1 by ECD using or Tissue paper and Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz that were embossed using 'Petal Power' Embossing folder and Damask Embossign folder all by ECD. I then used Timber Brown and Jet Black Stazon ink to highlight the embossed areas. For the center of the flowers I used black velvet paper by Elizabeth Craft Designs. I laid some flowers on top of a piece of chipboard which I used embossed in Dauber by Ranger and embossed using Byzantine Bronze and Midnight Bronze Obsidian Embossing Powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang. For the two butterflies I used a paper from Tattered Time and cut them using the silhoutte  butterfly die that comes with the Butterfly Pivot Card by Karen Burniston by ECD. I then cut the overlay using Beige Velvet Paper by ECD and sponged on Vintage Photo for definition.I added small flowers from I Am Roses and sprayed them using Lindy's Stamp Gang Vintage Spray called 'Incandescent Copper' and added a couple of gold flowers and flower charm by Prima Marketing. I added a couple of metal embellishments a rose and a butterfly and used Brown Gold Inka Gold to highlight them. I cut out leaves using gold metallic shimmer sheetz and beige velvet paper using Triple Leaf Set by ECD.
I had a manilla tag which I used for journalling and used a button with twine for the pullout.  I cut out "Thinking of You" using a die and  black velvet paper by ECD. After all that I took some Sepia Acrylic Artists ink by Daler Rowney and made splats on my paper and cover up the photo so it didn't get splat on...

Remembering Ralph....

There are days when you would like to skip and this is one day is one for me, although time keeps going on... but for me it seems like yesterday. Six years ago today (April 9th) my best friend/husband (Ralph) passed away from Cancer.  I never do any scrapbooking pages about my husband or myself, usually it's just about the kids, right?. So I thought I could honour my husband this way. I saw this video by Limor Webber for Prima Marketing which you can find here. I started off using a vintage paper from the collection by DCWV called 'Tattered Time'. I placed this on a 130 lb white super stock paper using soft gel medium by Golden to adhere it.

I then used my Brick Stencil by The Crafters Workshop TCW191 and used light modelling paste by Golden to add texture to the paper. I also added some more texture using another TCW 267 called 'Ledger'. I then took a Versamark and swiped it onto the texture paste and brushed on some Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in gold and brown to soften the white paste. I also added some Old Gold Inka Gold by Viva Decor to add more highlight. I then outlined the bricks using a Stabilo pencil which will move when using a water brush to add some depth. For the photo I just added a lot of layers using various papers from the bottom up. First layer was tissue paper, paper from Weekend Market by Bo Bunny, glassine envelope which was stamped on using a texture stamp by Dina Wakley and brown Archival ink by Ranger.
I then used a white resist pattern paper by Prima Marketing which was sponge using Vintage Photo distress ink. I added a doily which was sprayed using Lindy's Stamp Gang Dark Chocolate Truffle and then stamped some texture using black archival ink and Dina Wakley stamps. I added some gears which were cut out using corrugated paper using Tim Holtz Gear die in the left hand & right hand corner. Highlighted using Old Gold Inka Gold. I added a gear chipboard piece which was coloured using black soot distress stain and tarnished brass distress paint. I added some buttons with twine, gold  flowers, tags, stamps and cut up a metal frame to add more texture. In the gold flower in the top left hand, I added a "21" brad which was Ralph's birthday. I cut out some tags using Bo Bunny 'Weekend Market' to add some journalling.
