Scrapbook Page for a mini album


Hello, Today I am using "Gentle Muse" digital scrapbook kit by Dragon's Lair Designs. It is a special freebie for the Dragon's Lair Fan page group. You can join the group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/636646656454888/.
The dragon's Lair Designs Store can be found here http://dragonslairdesigns.com/shop/.

The sentiment is by Create with TLC. You can find it here http://icraftgifts.com/digital-creations-with-tlc.

I printed off all the elements in the mini kit. I then cut it all out by hand. 

I printed several of the clip shaped pieces and added iridescent glitter to them. Then I used 5 to create dragonflies. I popped up the dragonflies at different levels. 

The two frames are, Top one 3" and the other 3 1/2". I placed a sentiment by Create with Tlc in it. I then added foam strips to the other frame to pop it up so i can slide a photo into it from the top.

The 3 stripes on the uper right have Glossy Accents added to them. They actually look like real metal in person.

The mini page is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". It is for a friend mini album I am making.

Birthday Card


Hello, Today I am using a Digi Stamps 4 Joy digi called "March 2016 Art Deco Beauty." I got it by joining the progressive Freebie challenge on the DS4J Facebook group. You can find the group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/636935063114458/. This is a closed group so you will need to ask to join it.

Copics used are BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07, BG09.

The iridescent glitter is by by Recollections. I applied it by adding mod podge to the butterfly first. Once dry I added foam tape to the back on the wings and on the other parts I added a double layer so the wings would like like they were flying. The body is glued right to the card.

The embossing was done using an embossing folder called D'vine Swirls by Cuttlebug. I first Spritzed the white cardstock with Silver Shimmer Mist. I then inked the embossing folder with a teal ink pad and then a blue over the teal. I embossed the paper while the shimmer mist was still damp. This created a lovely look but not dark enough so I ran both ink pads over the design. Once the card stock was dry I then cut it to the size needed and matted it for my card.

The papers are by Recollections- blue, Georgia Pacific- white, Imagine That!- digital print from Spring In Bloom set- http://www.imaginethatdigistamp.com/store/c1/Featured_Products.html.

The card is 5" x 6 1/2".
