I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday morning 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping in! I’m so excited to go on this crafting journey with you. 🙂 Here’s a sneak peak of one of my projects (before I ramble on for too long…)
For today’s blog post, I used one of the new Kaisercraft lines that Lori has in store, Daydreamer, (hence the super creative title). 😉 It includes both soft and bright colours, and also lots of neutral patterns. Essentially, this is a line that you can’t go wrong on! Here, I used it on neutral bags with some “oasis” chipboard pieces from Crate Paper.
I used mandarins as a bit of decor, since they are packaged in the brown bag.
I later packed the mandarins in the brown bag, tea, and some cough candy as a bit of a “feel better” gift for a friend.
Another project I used the Daydreamer line on, was cards. Here, I used ALOT of stickers from the line. You’re probably thinking, stickers? really? I know exactly how you feel. For the longest time I thought stickers in scrapbooking were so “back then.” You know what I mean? I just couldn’t see myself using them on my projects…until now. I started using some of the smaller stickers on the bags and then thought of using some other ones for backgrounds on cards (as a way to use up the stickers in my paper pack…) Well….turns out stickers are actually quite useful and are AMAZING for layering! Because they are flat and generally very simple, I found them to be amazing for layering up with chipboard, Nuvo drops, or other embellishments. I also like to use vellum over the stickers to make the colours softer and creating a bit of dimension.
For the first card, I used the arrow stickers from the Daydreamer sticker sheet and sewed them onto the card. I added little Nuvo drops in between the arrows to add a bit more interest. The “never lose your wonder” sticker is also from the same sticker sheet 🙂
For the next card I used most of the other “quote stickers” for my background. I initially wanted to lightly paint over the background with white paint, but didn’t have any at the camper and therefore used white Nuvo as paint. I think gesso or white paint would look better, especially if you prefer a matte background, but the Nuvo definitely adds something different. 🙂 I covered half the card front with white card stock to tone the busy background down a bit and then finished it off with a round sticker, raising it slightly with foam squares.
Lastly, my favourite of the three is a simple “hugs” card. Most of the layering happens under the vellum, where I use the the small rectangular pieces from the Daydreamer sticker sheet as a design along the top of the card. I then scattered a few different stickers to create interest in the background.
And here are the layers, all stacked … simple, but sweet. The die cuts are from the Daydreamer ephemera pack which, like usual, contains a huge variety of cuts 🙂
Thanks again for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
