Six Card Series in a Matching Box

Hello! Peggy here to show you my six cards in a gift box. I used this months fabulous sponsor Teresa Collins papers and acetate. Together with my eBrush by Craftwell I was able to shade and accentuate my embellishments. Supplies used today are:

eBrush by Craftwell USA
Teresa Collins Glam Factor
Patterned Paper/Images Prima
Spectrum Noir marker FS5
Precut cards and envelopes
Painters tape
Double sided tape
small bead chain for the bird cage

1. I began with my dies using the Teresa Collins Glam Factor paper I cut out some shapes that I could use to embellish my cards.
2. I used my eBrush with my spectrum noir marker FS5 to all the edges of tags, flowers, butterfly and frame.
3. I cut out images from another company as I felt they complimented each other and I eBrushed the edges of all images as well.

I used painters tape to hold my dies in place while I sprayed. 
4. I built my cards up using pre-made card bases as my guide as to how big my patterned paper would be. I cut all my background papers to fit my card base.  I placed  the cut images under the acetate for this first card. I love how the acetate shows the glam of gold in the papers.

5.  I adhered my embellishments, papers and ribbon with double sided tape.

Finally I made a box from a 12x12 paper from Teresa Collins Glam Factor Collection with a peekaboo window that shows the cards inside. 

Thank you for looking! I have a special someone in mind for this set. In fact I had her in my mind the entire time making it.. I hope she enjoys it!!

Mini Album and Card with Bella Blvd. and Craftwell USA

Hello and welcome to my blog showcasing today is
Craftwell USA eBrush and this months sponsor Bella Blvd.

Supplies used today are: 
Extra thick chipboard
Binding method (Bind it all)
Coin envelopes
 card: card base 

I  gathered my materials including some chipboard and two coin envelopes. Out of the cut papers i created tags using Treasures and Text from the Just Add Color collection. 

 I chose a color swatch of circles to gather my color selection of sharpies. 
 Then i just let my imagination go. i colored the sections all differently with coordinating colors that match the line.
 Once all papers were sprayed and colored I glued them with mod podge to the chipboard and envelopes. I sealed the envelopes and trimmed off the long edge creating two pockets.
 I bound my chipboard pages and envelopes with my bind it all but you can chose to bind in many different anyways. Google is a great source for binding methods. 
 I slipped my tags inside the two pockets so just the tops peeked out. This little photo album is going to looks great with some black and white photo's planned for the inside!
 I used post it notes to cover the letters I did not want to spray with my eBrush just in case any overspray.

 Here is my matching card. I had left over eBrushed paper so I made this quick card using Bella Blvd. fabulous line. 
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and come check out Craftwell USA products!
