Scenes of the Sea

 

Roxie is with us today to share this beautiful scenes of the sea card using Perfect Tears with the Perfect Cutting Mat. You can see how beautiful the edges are when using the tears to get that even deckle effect.

A color wash of light blue was done on the watercolor paper and dried naturally. The paper was then lined up on the Perfect Cutting Mat making sure the edge is on a line, this makes it easy to line up the Perfect Tears Ruler (design used in the photo below), make the tears and end up with a rectangle panel.

Those guide lines were also used with the Perfect Ruler to cut the border around the watercolor paper.

Every Chameleon Pen in the set was used for this card giving a beautiful undersea rainbow of color.

The fish, top half of the seahorse and top of the highest kelp leaf were attached with foam
tape, all other images and die pieces with tacky glued to the card panel.

Thanks for stopping by today, we will be back soon with more inspiration using Perfect Paper Crafting products.

A Gift From The Easter Bunny

A gift from the Easter bunny, perfectly captured by the talented Roxie!Brown Bunny Rox71 2-15

By Roxie Glaza

Roxie used four of her favorite tools for this card, one being the Perfect Cutting Mat which is lightweight, a nice size and easy to store.

Roxie said “I like creating out of the box images and the Perfect Square always makes the task an easy one and it’s very easy to use.  I cut to the image and in this case between the lines then skip over the image and cut to the bottom.  I then cut the image out with scissors”.

Perfect Square

The Perfect Layers makes it easy to get even borders all around the panel.  On this card Roxie used the 1/16″ and 1/4″ for the image panel and 1/16″ and 1/8″ for the striped panel.

Perfect Layers

The Perfect Ruler came in handy for cutting off the white scrap to the length of the striped panel. Roxie’s favorite feature of this tool is the press down bar, it not only grips the project being cut to avoid movement but is also higher than the cutting blade which keeps the fingers out of danger should that knife slip.

Valentine’s Heart Beat

 

Jenny’s heart is beating fast for her love with this gorgeous card.PPC VAL POSTING 1By Jenny Gropp

Getting a few last minute cards done for Valentine’s Day. I had to use this darling Cupid Die from Impression Obsession. A few dies, paired up with my Mini Perfect Layer Rulers certainly makes a quick and finished looking card!

PPC VAL POSTING 2

I cut the cupid and the frame, three times each. I glued them together, stacking one on top of the next, creating a raised element that feels like chip board. You can see the small mats I added to the white panel. I used my Mini Perfect Layers to add two 1/16″ layers. I always use my Perfect Cutting grid mat to make sure I am lining everything up on my card nice and straight.

PPC VAL POSTING 3

Layers on the inside too! I added another NEW Impression Obsession Die “Love” and used “you” from the Greeting Die Set.

The finished card opens tent style and is an A2. I added a little sparkly glitter to the embellish the hearts and match up with the sparkly bow.
