[lang_en]I was so thrilled when Heidi and Stuart asked me to make up some cards for the advertisement for the Leere Aldrich, Paper Crafts Magazine Ad!!! One, I love these new images, they are just so much fun! And two, I don’t take many crafting magazines anymore, but Paper Crafts is one I still do!
Well here are the two cards that they chose for the ad, I am happy these were the ones, of all the ones I sent these were two of my favorites!
There are so many fun images to color with Leere Aldrich… I can’t wait to make my next card!
Run over to Stampavie and see for yourself how fun they all are!
The cards were super fun to make -
The first one is called “Going Places“. Do you love the convertible, who can resist a red convertible!
Colored with my Copics and then used silver adhesive dots as the hub caps. The papers are all Basic Grey I think – maybe My Minds Eye.. heck it has been almost two months. I used a pink card stock as the base, with a dark brown card stock as a mat. I sewed with a zig zag stitch. I cut one of the flourishes out of one of the pattern papers out and then matted with the dark brown.
The sentiment is also from Leere Aldrich, matted on green then brown. With a Green Satin ribbon.
I love the stitching on the card – I think it adds so much texture, and detail you just can’t get with paper and ink… shock horror oh my can’t believe I said that! But I do love the stitching. Now all I have to do is figure out how I can get one of those convertibles myself! Wonder if it can pull a donkey trailer?
The second card is just so girlie… I used DCWV with my Copics, including the back ground – Baby Girl Nana Nursery Glitter papers, lots of them! All on a hot pink card stock base. I actually did the sewing on them individually before I put the card together – would have been just to thick to sew as one. I colored the fun image “Bathing Beauty” looks like velvet in person, I cut with my Spellbinders Nestibilities circle, then the dotted pattern paper with a scallop circle, sewed the edge really slow to keep it as a circle. LOL. Sewing in a circle is a challenge for me! There are three ribbons stacked that both seemed to match so well. I punched two flowers with a EK Success retro flower centered with large yellow brads, I high lighted with white gel pen. The sentiment again is also from Leere Aldrich – perfect for the image, part of the Sentiment B collection.
Thanks so much and I do hope you enjoyed my cards!
