This is just one of two fabulous posts lined up for you today so I hope you are ready!!!!
It's the 5th of the month which means a BRAND NEW KIT CHALLENGE is live over at Frosted Designs!!!! This month's "Capture the Moment" kit is gorgeous, to say the least!!!!
The Prima "Time Traveler" Collection is featured in this fabulous array of papers, brads, flair, trim, and much, MUCH more!!!! I couldn't wait to sit down and create something fabulous!!!
I've had this 7Gypsies chipboard house lying around for quite sometime that I FINALLY got around to once I received these wonderful goodies!!!
Here's a look:
Isn't it adorable?!? And the papers are so versatile that I created two different looks for the front and back!
I started my "house" by adding various papers, inking them heavily with various distress inks. I chose the photos I wanted then added them inside the precut squares. I grabbed some flowers and some of the embellishments and got to work decorating my "house!!! Hahaha!!!!
For the center piece on each side, I used contrasting papers from the side panels to make it stand out a bit! I used several of the Prima ATC cards and tags, as well as the library cards for embellishing!
The burlap butterflies and flowers are darling and definitely had to be included here!
I have always been of fan of Liquid Pearls and am soooo happy they were included in this month's kit!!! They add just the right amount of detail to any type of project! You can also use them to create bling swirls with a bit of acetate and a template!
For the back, I wanted something more "elegant" looking because I wanted photos of me and my husband!!! I chose to use the blacks and whites for this side as well as B&W photographs!
As you can see, I used more of the ATC cards on the back, also heavily inked with Distress Inks (Walnut Stain and Black Soot). I added some tickets, flowers, brads and flair to dress things up!
I LOVE the Prima Trim included also and used it to tie my bows through the holes on the sides that connect all the pieces (I punched them with my Crop A Dile!).
The stencil included in the kit is fabulous and is great for adding some depth to your background! You can do a little, or a lot! I used the postal stamp portion for this and also the vertical lines.
I used more of my homemade bling and added a couple more flowers!
I finished the house with the clear Prima stickers included in the kit!!!!
I truly LOVE this project and am very glad I finally got to it!!! This will be on display in my house for a very long time :-)
Next up is card I made using the scraps left over from my little house! Like I said... LOVE this kit!!!
Here's a look at the card:
I think this would be a wonderful card to give to my hubby (hint*)!!!! I love how the liquid pearls add a masculine touch to the card!!!
I used the maroon shaded paper as my base, then layered some of the black and white papers atop of it! I grabbed another of those darling ATC cards and used it as my sentiment piece!
I have these little clock die-cuts I made with my die-cutting machine that I misted with the Perfect Pearls spray and inked with distress ink. I topped it off with liquid pearls!!!
I tucked one of the tags from the kit behind my ATC card and embellished it with more liquid pearls!!! I also added a pice of flair that matched the base paper!
I finished the card with a bunch of various flowers and dabs of liquid pearls here and there!!!
There you have it!!! Two fabulous projects with one AMAZING kit!!!!
