Pencil Shaped card by Dina Kowal

 

We have an adorable card to share today from Dina Kowal!

This card design is actually a CASE of a card I made a few years ago - a French papercrafts magazine had requested a photo without a watermark so I recreated the project for them.

These are the dies I used:

Code: DIE009-Z
Code: DIE017-V

 

 The edge of the 'paint' is actually the negative cut of the lower border die. I scored the lines along that panel, just adjusting the position so each point would be on a scoring line. (The yellow pencil ended up with a smudgy glue spot in a place I couldn't cover. :(
 


The bottom of each pencil is aluminum foil tape - it was easy to die cut and apply. The tips were cut with the tip of the die from a die cut oval to give the curved edge.


The sentiment is from a set I reach for often - Mini Messages - that has inchie-sized sentiments. Those are stamped on 1" matboard squares from Inchie Arts.

Livin' The Salt Life by Jenny Gropp

 Fun beach card from Jenny Gropp!
 
 
It's starting to feel like summer here in Atlanta... heading to the beach sounds really nice! I thought I'd build a little sand castle for today's challenge. We've got new products to share too and I used one of the new clear stamp sets, Sailing into the Sunset, on my card today. This is a great set for some summer cards or accents on those beach scrapbook pages. 
 
 
 
 IO just introduced some great new dies, which you can see here, several of them are All in One Layering Frame Die sets. I used the new All-in-One Squares Set which has great little stitched edges. I cut the little sandcastle multiple times, just building it out to the right size for my frame.
 
 
 
Have a great day!
