Maya Road and Ken Oliver Blog Hop!!



Hello friends!! Today I am super excited to be joining the Maya Road and Ken Oliver Crafts Designer Challenge Blog Swap!!
For all the details, please check Ken's Blog

I got fun goodies from Maya Road and Ken Oliver Crafts and I just couldn't make 1 projects, so I made 2 and then I thought I will make one more, LOL. I made a canvas too, but that one will take more time to finish ;)

So let's get started with my projects:


Merry Christmas card

  • Start with a card base from White Cardstock. A2 size, then cut a panel from Kraft cardstock 3.75" x 5".
  • Cut a panel from Watercolor paper 4.5" x 4.75". Here is the fun part, I drew the poinsettia!! I think it turned out really pretty {wink, wink}. Color the flower with Alizarin Crimson, Pthalo Green and Lemon Yellow Color Burst. Be sure you have a mat for easy cleaning, I used the The Best Ever Craft Mat.
  • After the flower is flower is dried, create the washed background with Lemon Yellow and Ultramarine Blue Color Burst.
  • Apply as much needed Stick It behind a piece of Gold cardstock. Die-cut the "Merry Christmas" x3, peel the Stick It and mount them together.
  • Mount Kraft and watercolor piece and add stitches. 
  • Add die-cut to panel, add sequin and rhinestones.
=========================


Just for YOU friend
  • Start with a card base from Red Cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of watercolor paper, create washed background using Lemon Yellow and Alizarin Crimson Color Burst.
  • Cut a piece of yellow lace, long enough to add it behind a wooden token, to create a "flower look"
  • Adhere a piece Stick it on a piece of Coastal Pearl Shimmering cardstock, big enough to die-cut "friend" x3, then peel the pieces and mount them together.
  • Add a stripe of Kraft cardstock to left side and add stitches.
  • Finally, add die-cut and wooden token to panel.
===========================
