Welcome to the Kre8tors July 2018 Blog Hop. This will be our first hop involving a sketch challenge. I really like participating in challenges, because they provide inspiration through color, theme, or layout. I can’t wait to see what everyone has done with today’s sketch.
At the bottom of my post you’ll find the Blog Hop Line-Up, or you can just click the “next” button. It will take you to the next fabulous project.
I chose to design my project around a a stamp set that immediately “caught” my eye in the Stampin’ Up 2018-2019 annual catalog. The “dream catcher” (Follow Your Dreams, page 54) spoke to me. Dream catchers are beautiful works of art, and duplicating this with paper is so much fun!
There is a wonderful die in the Chase Your Dreams die set that looks much like the photo above. I used this die to cut two dreamcatchers from cardstock; one from Thick Whisper White, one from Crumb Cake, and glued them together. Can you see the layered feathers in the two colors?
The background has four layers, beginning with a Crumb Cake card base. It is layered with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, doubled with cardstock for thickness.
The next layer is a square piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock, which provides a frame for a piece of Share What You Love Designer Series Paper.
The fourth layer is a Crumb Cake banner, holding the sentiment. “Follow Your Dreams” is from the stamp set, appropriately named, Follow Your Dreams. This square is raised on Adhesive strips for dimension.
The inside of the card is made special by a Swirly Frames, rectangular stamp in Crumb Cake ink. And, The three feathers were stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink, and cut with their two dies.
I used the Wood Grain embossing folder to decorate the envelope flap, keeping with the rustic theme.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention the blue bead in the center of the dream catcher. Funny how one, little bead can add so much! You’ll find a variety of colors in the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles, available at my store.
