Layers - Crafting by Designs

Challenge: Layers

I made a floating easel card. It may not look like there is a lot of layers, like some of my cards have, but there are actually quite a few layers. The top frame had 4 layers of carstock for strength. The easel frame had 3 layers. The base of the card was a monoprinted paper on top of a card. With a floating easel there isn't much space to sign the card, so I have the easel sitting on a basic card layer.
The other way I incorporated layers was with the monoprinted piece. It had several layers of paint to get the magical look I was going for.

Corners Borders Frames - Crafting by designs

Theme: Corners Borders Frames
Sponsor: Eureka Stamps

My first project I made an origami corner bookmark. I added an itty bitty card to the bookmark. I watercolored it and added glitter.

 I could have made it just a panel on the bookmark, but I wanted to have a place where you could write a message or sign. I added some mono printed paper with music notes to the inside of the itty bitty card.

I watercolored the fawn and fussy cut him out and put him on lots of layers. I used some mono printed leaf design for the layers. I framed him with kraft. I added a twine bow.

It's a Girl Thing Sunshine

has a really fun set that is being released today.

I combined that set with Blossom Like a Butterfly
I made a magical marquee card. The blossom like a butterfly and some of the flowers from It's a Girl Thing Sunshine were stamped, colored and fussy cut. I glued them to a paper clip to make the closer for the card.
The flowers on the front of the card were each made by using 2 of the flowers from the It's a Girl thing set. I colored them and fussy cut them and I layered them. I added white paint highlights and added glitter to the centers of the flowers.

On the inside of the card the marquee opens up to reveal the little blue butterfly. That butterfly is from Trendy Butterflies. The little hearts and sentiment and heart borders are from the It's a Girl Thing set.
