Soft and Pretty Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, including rice paper from Ciao bella.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a pad of 12×12 paper to create plenty of elegant/vintage cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. I am still getting better and better each month with cards and I have a nice supply of them now:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. I used flowers from the kit. The vellum is from the flower pack in the kit. I embossed one of the mini chipboard frames in the kit with a vintage embossing powder.

The clock is from my stash, I added some alcohol ink to it to color it. The sentiment is from my stash, it’s from a Tim Holtz pack. I also embossed the leafy chipboard piece with a soft green color. I also inked the edges of my papers.

Today’s tip: If something isn’t the right color, make it so. Try using alcohol inks, distress inks, or embossing powder to alter elements to fit your project.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Elegant July Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, washi tape and ephemera from Prima Marketing.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of elegant summer cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. I have to admit, I am getting better and better each month with these:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. I used one of my favorite lace flowers and cut it into pieces for the border. The center flower is a leftover resin piece from a previous kit. I also cut out some pieces from the chipboard vine to use as embellishments.The ticket is from the kit as well.

The chipboard butterfly is from the kit and I heat embossed it. The doily is a die cut from my stash. It’s one of my favorites to use on cards because it is the perfect size. I actually did some fussy cutting for this card as well.

Today’s tip: Don’t be afraid to let elements hang off the side of your cards. it adds visual interest to them.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Shabby Chic Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers and ephemera from Lemoncraft.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of Shabby Chic Easter and Spring cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. They are a bit Shabby Chic:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. The basics complement the pattern paper so well. I used one of my favorite doily die cuts on both cards. I also cut out some pieces from the ephemera sheets to use as embellishments.

The chipboard swirls are from the kit and I just left them naked. The white lace is a leftover piece from a past kit.

Today’s tip: Use pieces of foam tape in between  your paper layers to add dimensions. I used a thinner foam tape so the cards weren’t to bulky and it turned out nice. I was able to stick my die cuts between the layers and my cards were still able to fit in an envelope.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

Shabby Chic Greetings Cards by Ginny

Hello all, Ginny here with you today…..

This month I had the card kit from Tres Jolie Kits to play with…. I am not a regular card maker but I have to say I really enjoyed creating these!
I have made two sets of cards, the second I will show you later in the month.
The card kit features Prima Amelia Rose, beautiful papers, with embellishments from Prima, 49 & Market, Darice and Creative Embellishments.

 

Here are some photos of the cards:

 

 

 

Now I will show a step by step process for creating them.

 

Use the white blank cards from the Card kit……

I chose 4 different patterned papers from the Amelia Rose paper pad.
I trimmed the first paper to fit the front of the card making it very slightly smaller then the card size.

Each paper layer after that I made lightly smaller then the previous to create the different layers.

I distressed all the edges and the final layer I tore into to really distress it!

Stick the first two layers onto the front of the card

And the third….

The fourth layer I wrapped the seam binding around it length ways and tied into a bow…….

….and then glue it on top of the other layers.

I wanted to create a decoupage effect with some fussy cutting from the papers. I cut four pieces of similar flower clusters from the floral paper.

With my starting point in place with my chosen main flower I then started adding my decoupage layers next to it, with the use of tiny small foam pads.

If you are layering up amongst flowers you may need to double pads up at one end to get the piece to sit flat.

I then added the next decoupage layer in order of size on top of the first…..

At this point I also started to add more small flowers and the leaves.

The last paper decoupage layer was added…

…along with another small flower and leaf.

I added a couple of single fussy cut flowers to the background before adding my title greeting.

The chipboard titles were embossed with white embossing powder.

Here are the products used on these cards

* Prima Amelia Rose A4 paper pad
* 49 & Market Garden Seeds Watermelon
* Creative embellishments chipboard – Sentimental Words
* Darice Cards & Envelopes
* Tres Jolie Seam Binding

 

 

And some close ups……

Birthday Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

I have to admit, cards and tags weren’t my thing to begin with, but I am really getting into them now. Especially using these kits. Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of tags and cards. It also have a set of cards with envelopes.  Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a Birthday Tag and Card set.

How about some close ups:

I cut the tag out of the copper cardstock in the kit. Then I created a couple of layers of paper and cardstock and more paper. I fussy cut a few flowers from a sheet of the paper and added it in between my layers. I also added some of the tickets from the kit on top of the layers

The chipboard title and bling are from the kit and I just painted it with black gesso. The oval from is from my stash. I used a couple layers of black gesso, then randomly sprinkled some pink embossing powder on it.

For the mini card, it was done pretty much the same as the tag. I used the copper cardstock as a base, added some layers of paper and embellished with flowers, bling and a frame from my stash. Instead of using black gesso on the frame I used white. I still added the pink embossing powder. The limited edition title is also from my stash.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow us on all our various Social Media outlets.

Havana Cards and the Card Sketch with Rae

Happy Saturday, craft people!

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:

I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! 🙂 Here are two I made based on the sketch:

Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.

I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.

To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.

Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.

We’d love it if you used the kits to join the challenges, but if you aren’t already a subscriber, you can still play along with your own supplies. However, consider subscribing! https://tresjoliekits.com/services/

We do have a couple of August card kits still available here!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Card sketch

Hey everyone, it’s Kim. Today I am sharing the cards I made using the card kit and the sketch. I have to say, I’m not the best with cards, so it was good to have a sketch to follow. I’m not sure how that works though. I can create a sketch, but can’t create a card from scratch. Oh well, moving on.

Have you seen our card kit this month? It is amazing!! It features papers from Prima, a die and lots of fun embellishments. Take a look:

There are still  few kits available. You can do a single purchase here or you can subscribe here.

Here is the card sketch for the challenge this month. Make sure you join in on the fun. Post your entry for the card challenge in our Facebook Cafe.

You don’t have to be a kit subscriber to enter, just please don’t enter using products from another kit club.

Here are my takes on the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here is that pretty die and my flower cluster. I used the banner tag in the cluster for my sentiment instead of on the bottom.

For my center image on this card, I used the die cut twice and added the wood doily as the main piece. Then I added smaller flowers to accent it.

I love the bakers twine in the kit. The colors are perfect for this bright summery card kit. Plus there is plenty of card stock to make several cards or tags.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.
