“Create With Kathe” for Thursday 19th February 2015

#CreateWithKathe #JorjaRoseFiles

This week we had so much fun making two gorgeous, but very different cards.
The first is a "Pop Out Swing Card", based on the card I made for Valentine’s Day.
The second card we made was a Parisian Shabby Chic Card, showcasing my new MFT “Bicycle” Die ...

Project 1 “Pop Out Swing Card”
Based on my Valentine Card, the ladies were able to choose their own sentiment from the “Crazy About You” stamp set, and matching die cut words from the “Hello You” Thinlits.

“You make me happy”

“Thinking of you”

For all the construction details, please head on over to my original Post, which can be found here 

“Crazy about you”

I took on Jill’s advice for this last card and made panel slight longer, so that it sat over the square cut, so it was more obvious to the recipient to pull/swing the card open.   Thanks Jill for your suggestion ...

“Just sayin’ happy birthday” 

This last card was made for a little friend turning 5 years old. I added in the swing, as it looks so cute and childish.
Wah-lah …”Pop Out Swing Card” done {again}!

Project 2 “Parisian Shabby Chic Card”

I had so much fun designing this card, which was based on a couple of watches I purchased earlier this week, can’t wait till they arrive!

The card-base is Naturals Ivory, measuring 8” x 5, ½”, folded in half, finished size is 4" x 5, ½”.
The “Post Card” stamp is inked up with Soft Suede, and stamped on to another piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock.
Stamps from the “Artistic Etchings”, “Painted Petals” and “Sheltering Tree” are stamped in Blushing Bride, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Strawberry Slush, and Momento Tuxedo Black.
The Post Card is then cut to size using the Stampin’ Trimmer.
Four strands of the Wild Wasabi “Painted Blooms Cotton Twine” are combined with two lengths of Linen Thread, which are twisted together, then wrapped around the “Post Card” panel and adhered.   Combining the same 4+2 recipe, some more Wild Wasabi {PBCT} and Linen Thread are tied in a bow and adhered.
The bicycle is cut in Basic Black cardstock using the MFT “Bicycle” Die, and adhered using 2-Way Glue Pen.
The sentiment “You've got courage, you've got strength.” is from the “Something To Say” stamp set, and is stamped in Soft Suede, and cut using the “Word Bubbles” Framelits.
The cute little heart is also from the “Something To Say” stamp set, and is stamped in Strawberry Slush and punched with the little heart from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
Both of these are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and finally the "Post Card" is also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card-base.
The finishing touch are the small Pearls, from the Pearl Basic Jewels, which are added to the flowers, the heart and 3 little Pearls on the left side of the card.

For the card insert, as the cardstock is Naturals Ivory and quite thick, I was able to stamp/decorate straight onto the cardstock, without needing to add another panel/layer.
Strawberry Slush blooms are stamped from the “Painted Petals” stamp set, with little Pearls added to the centre of each bloom.
The Eiffel Tower {from the "Artistic Etchings" stamp set} is stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black, as it gives a nice clean finish.
Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter is added to the Eiffel Tower with 2-Way Glue Pen.
For the sentiment “You are amazingly amazing” is stamped in Early Espresso onto Vellum.
The sentiment is layered with another piece of Naturals Ivory cardstock that has been stamped with blooms in Strawberry Slush, which peak out from under the Vellum.
Both the Vellum sentiment and the stamped blooms {on Natural Ivory cardstock} are punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and then Venetian Crochet Trim is looped and threaded through, knotted and stapled with the Mini Handheld Stapler. The "Project Life Corner" Punch is used to round the corners of the Tag. 
The finishing touch are the three small Pearls that have been coloured with Pink Pirouette Blendabilities.       
Wah-lah … ‘Parisian Shabby Chic Card” done!
