The Grad by Kim

Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards with you today.

Graduations will be happening soon, so I decided to share a card I made using The Grad Title CF.  Here's my card:

Despite the fact that this cut file is designed as a scrapbook title, it's pretty easy to turn it into a card.  I mirrored the large mat and welded them together to create the base.  I cut a single mat the second time to place on top as I prefer the look to a "flat top" where the card folds.

I used some very old card stock to cut the pieces.  It's Bazzill card stock for the base and the title, but I don't know the names of the colors.  The cap is Basic Gray by Stampin' Up.

To create the card base, I centered a dashed line in the center of the card as my score line.  I made a second copy of the card base and made a compound path in the modify window.  This enables me to do an internal offset to use as a mat for the sentiment inside the card.  I played around with various fonts to come up with something to match the front.

Hope this gives you a bit of inspiration to make the cards for the graduates in your life!  If you get the chance, come and visit me at Katydid Cards.

Wonderful, Beautiful YOU!

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's Larelyn from Handmade From My Heart.

I have been wanting to try water coloring with Distress Inks and I found the perfect Paper Crafting World image on which to try.

Here's my project using the Wonderful Beautiful You Digital Printable stamp image.

I just smeared Distress Inks onto an acrylic block, dipped my brush in water and then the ink and began to paint.  I also used a water brush to help blend the colors.

The papers are from a K & Co stack I had in my stash.  The sentiment is a part of the Digital Printable set.  All I added was some American Crafts ribbon, and Queen&Co and Doodlebug Designs adhesive flower and dots.  

Thanks for joining us today.
