Hello There Friend

Hi everyone it’s Holly here today and I’ve got another fun project for you Showcasing the Right at Home Simple Sentiment set and the Perfect Paper Crafting Perfect Tears Tool. 
I started out by tearing the edge of a few pieces of coordinating paper papers from Doodlebug with the Perfect Tears Tool. You can use the pen in this kit to create a wet edge to make the tearing a little smoother but I like using this tool on the dry paper for a rougher texture.

Once I had all three pieces of the pattern paper torn I adhered them to a Turquoise card base and trimmed off any excess.

Then I die cut a circle from some White card stock and added some color with Distress inks to create a background for my images.

I stamped several images form the RAH sets Friendly Fox  , Deerest Friends  and Birdhouse onto some White Copic friendly card stock and colored them in with Copics. I cut them with some scissors and added some Black marker around the outer edge for a cleaner look.

I adhered the images to the Circle to create the scene. Then I added some Twine to the front of the card and the image circle with some Foam tape.

I stamped the sentiments from the Simple Sentiments set and trimmed them out with my scissors and adhered them over the edge of the Circle to create a custom sentiment.

Jumping For Joy

We are so pleased to kick of our new design team with this fabulous project from Jenny Gropp.How fun is this little old lady jumping for joy? She’s jumping up and down cause it’s not her turning older! Her name Lillie and its an image from the fun Art Impressions. After coloring her up with Copics I used a Wobble to pop her up so she wiggles and jumps as soon as you pick up the card.

Here are the Copics I used to color Lillie. She’s a little on the skinny side so I had to cut the wobble down so you don’t see it sticking out behind her. To trim in the tiny little areas I used an Xacto knife. I added a little jute string detail around the oval die cut… not as tedious as it seems. I used a fineline applicator to put a small line of glue down and just laid the string along the glue.

I’ve used my Mini Perfect Layer Rulers to add all the yummy layers on the card. The smallest ruler has a 1/16″ edge and its my favorite and most used… those skinny little layers are ideal for card size projects.

I die cut some border edges from the patterned paper and wanted to layer them up. I used the Perfect Ruler and my grid mat to hold everything in place and cut a clean measured edge.

On the inside I always use up the left over paper. Also if you have lots of layers on the front… carry it through to the inside for a nicely balanced and finished card.
