Scrappy Cards

by jocelynolson1

Hi all! It’s Jocelyn on the blog today.

I’m a big fan of patterned paper and use it on most cards. I made a couple of cards mixing papers with the Lacy Scrolls stamps and dies.

Hello Hello

 
I was inspired by THIS mini album Claudia Shadler–her projects are always so wicked cool! I cut six different Poolside papers and added a strip of Maya Road lace tape for the background. For the layering, I used the Lacy Scrolls stamps, matching dies, and a sentiment from Floral Motifs. The sentiments are smaller, which I love.
 

Hello Hello

 

Here’s the second card:

Feel Better Soon

 

I used the same paper collection and the largest flower from the Lacy Scrolls set. See the pretty yellow? It’s one of the new Altenew inks (coming very soon!). And yes, they are absolutely amazing. ;)

 

Here’s a close-up:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Another beauty… love the way you use your scraps, Jocelyn… very excited about the inks… I’m in the market for some new ones and wouldn’t know which to choose – what makes these amazing?

Thanks, Michele! <3 Good question about the inks. They are very crisp and dry quickly (i.e., they smoothed out almost immediately). I loved that they didn't really stain my stamps either, and the inks did not transfer residual ink onto the next pad. The colors are fantastic, and they are designed to work together. I'm generally a pigment ink user, but these dye inks are converting me. :)

You are the queen of perfect pattern-mixing & scrap-using!!! And I see you’ve incorporated the little snakey sequin “ribbon”. Seeing that pop up now a few places… I bought a ton of it at the holidays. Maybe sensing subconsciously a trend???? Haven’t used it yet. Love the peek of it here, and that pop of yellow, the square shape of the card. Both are just delightful!!!! Xo Kate

Jocelyn, I just adore each and every card you make…including these!!! You have such an eye for mixing colors and patterns in the most fabulous way! I wish you could come to my house and design a room for me…I’m sure you’d be just as awesome with fabrics. What a treat to see your cards this morning.

Die-Cutting Two Ways « May 30, 2015 - 10:12

[…] this card looks familiar, I actually made it at the same time as these Altenew cards. I used the leaf from the Lacy Scrolls dies and simply die-cut it out of linen […]
