Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper April Challenge

Hello friends! Over at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge, the only rule is to use your patterned paper! We hope you can join us this month as this is a great way to use some of your patterned paper. For this month, I wanted to share a couple of cards I made for Bring Smiles to Seniors, an organization that distributes hand made cards to seniors who might not be getting mail in elder care homes. They really appreciate hello cards as they can be used throughout the year, so I made a few of these.


Supplies used: 


 Card #1

This card was super quick to make because of the beautiful patterned paper! Using Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set, I die cut a piece of pink floral patterned paper with the second-largest stitched die. Next, I ink blended the patterned paper with Catherine Pooler's Pixie Dust ink. Next, I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the largest die from the Master Layout 2 die set and ink blended around the edges of the white cardstock so that it matches the patterned paper. I then die cut two additional pieces of scrap cardstock with the largest die and glued them behind the ink blended purple panel. Then I glued the patterned paper on top of the purple matte layer.  

 


Next, I turned to the Concord & 9th's Type Talk stamp set and stamped both the typewriter and the floral cluster on a piece of water color paper with VersaFine Clair Morning Mist ink and heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. The images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. The typewriter keys were colored with my pink Gelly Roll Metallic pen. The images were die cut with  the corresponding Type Talk dies. I also die cut two additional layers of scrap cardstock each with the typewriter and the floral cluster dies and then glued them behind the stamped and colored die cuts for additional dimension. 

To assemble, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the bottom right corner of the card panel with more of the Morning Mist and then heat embossed with more of the Holographic powder. The typewriter was glued to the center left of the card panel and then the floral cluster was glued on top of that. Finally, pink and white sequins from the Catherine Pooler's Scranton sequin mix were glued onto the card. To finish the card, the whole panel was glued onto an A2-sized card base.


Card #2

 

This card was created in a similar fashion as the first. With this card, the matte layer is the reverse of the kraft/multicolored streamer side and I used both papers as-is (no ink blending). I added a few strips of washi tape across the center part of the card: a pink floral, a polka-dotted blue and white star. I then die cut the kraft cardstock with the second-largest die from the Master Layout 2. Again, the largest die was used to cut the matte layer. After die cutting the two pieces of patterned paper, I glued them together (as well as the two additional layers of scrap cardstock behind the matte layer). 

The typewriter and floral images were created in the same way as before, this time without the metallic gelly roll pens. 

The sentiment was heat embossed with Ranger's Vintage Pearl embossing powder.
