It is nice to be a part of the Club Scrap Lock and Key Blog Hop. Once again the fun and creativity starts at Club Scrap Creates blog and you can always go there to catch everyone's links.
This month's post is about the 15 cards created using the Greetings to Go (GTG) from the Lock and Key kit. These cards were special since they were to be used as examples in the Lock and Key Scrap Rap. Here is a link to see all the fine (and free) inspriation in the Club Scrap Lock and Key Scrap Rap . I wanted to create a variety for everyone's taste while pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
These three cards are examples of the great fibers, papers and stamps in the Lock and Key kit. The GTG kit includes precut and scored panels and cards along with diecuts, ribbons, brads, and fibers.Everything to assist in creating wonderful cards.
I really enjoyed adding inks to the plain white backgound paper in the bicycle card.Using a craft sheet the Ocean and Earth ink pads were directly applied (or smeared), then the inks were sprayed with water. The paper was lightly sprayed with water too. Lastly the paper was then smooshed across the inks. I just loved the way the paper picked up the wet ink. I dried the paper with a heat tool.
The large card on the left was created the same way. The house card seemed perfect for the time of year, the house was a diecut from the mulberry paper included in the kit.Brown paper was put behind the house and an extra die cut was made for the door. The brad used as a door knob cannot be seen from the inside of the door.
The Happy Birtday card is an easel card, made from the trifold turquoise card prescored in the GTG kit, no cutting neccessary.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the cards and are ready to see the next Lock and Key inspriation by clicking here for Anne Marie Healey's Artfully Balanced blog.
