Wildlife Scrapbook Layout

Hey there! today I'm sharing my latest CutCardStock project, a scrapbook layout.

I’m lucky enough to have a second home up in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. One of my favorite things there, besides the beautiful scenery, is seeing the wildlife and we always have a camera ready to capture them in photos.



Supplies

Stamping Ink Pads
 Dryer Sheet and Baby Wipe
 Leaf Stencil 
Circle Dies
 Paper Trimmer 
Adhesive

Creating Patterned Card Stock

I like using patterned papers/card stocks on my projects. Not having any that I liked to coordinate with my photos, I created my own. 

The Basis White Card Stock was used. I trimmed a 12 x 12 inch piece to 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Using a used dryer sheet, I dabbed 3 colors of ink to created a textured background. A 4th color was used with a dried baby wipe to add some color to the edges and overall background.



To create a coordinated pattern, I sued a leaf stencil with 3 of the inks used above.


Photos

Three photos were chosen, trimmed and matted with the Stardream Metallic Gold Card Stock.

I created frames to add by die cutting with 2 circle dies.



Layout Base

The layout base is formed by matting the textured card stock with a 12 x 12 piece of the Ginger Snap Card Stock.



The stenciled card stock was trimmed to approximately 9 3/8 x 6 7/8 inches. I matted with a piece of the Gold Metallic card measuring 9 1/2 x 7 inches. This piece was adhered to the center of the piece above.



Photos were arranged and added next.



Finishing Touches

The title was computer generated and printed onto a piece of Basis White card. It is framed with a negative piece of one of the circle die cut frames. A circle die cut was added with strips of the gold and ginger snap card stocks. Three strips pieces of ginger snap were added by the photos.



I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout project.

We would love for you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page and our new group Creating with Card Stock.

Hello Fall Card

Oh my! I can not believe that summer is almost gone and fall will be here before we know it! Do you feel the same way?

 I have a fall themed card project to share with you today. I do love fall with the cooler weather and falling leaves in golds, oranges, browns and reds, which is the inspiration for the wreath on my card. And, CutCardStock has a great selection of card stocks in these colors.


Wreath Construction

Knowing that I wanted a wreath to be the focal of my card, I started by die cutting the elements for it using:

DCS Discount Card Stock: Vanilla Bean Brown Card StockDCS Discount Card Stock: Canvas Textured Ginger Snap Card StockDCS Discount Card Stock: Smooth Sand Castle Tan,  DCS Discount Card Stock: Canvas Textured ADOBO Orange, DCS Discount Card Stock: Textured Flame Tree Orange Card StockBasis GOLD 80lb CardstockBasis BURGUNDY Cardstock

Using 2 sizes circle dies I cut 5 frames out of the Vanilla Bean Brown CardStock to use as my wreath base. The other colors were used to cut various sizes of foliage.


I glued the 5 frame together for some dimension. For a little more dimension, I backed the frame using foam tape with a circle die cut out of Classic Crest NATURAL WHITE Card Stock. Then I started adhering the foliage.




Once I had all the foliage applied, I added a die cut sentiment and bow. 

My wreath is complete and ready for the card.


Card Base

I used the Classic Crest Natural White Card Stock to make a 5 x 6 1/2 inch card base. A piece of the Ginger Snap Card was cut to 5 x 6 1/2 inches and adhered to the card base. Patterned paper cut to 5 x 2 1/4 inches was added to the bottom of the card, An embossing folder was used on a piece of the natural white card cut to 4 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches for the top of the card. Vanilla Bean Brown was cut to 1/2 x 5 inches and added as a border.




Finished Card

The wreath was adhered to the card and my design is complete.


I hope you have enjoyed my “Hello Fall Card” project!
