Violeta's Smiles Layout

Hello everyone, my name is Violeta Scrap and I am so excited to share this layout with you using Amy Tangerine´s collections.

This layout is about my travel to Malaysia. As you can see I used so many flowers as embellishments which match perfectly with the colors, patterns and icons on this collection. They are so fresh and lovely!

This time I wanted to create a pink and yellow layout, which make the perfect combination for me.

I had so much fun with this page and was surprised at how quickly it came together. I started out with a white sheet of cardstock and I decided to add some color using yellow ink. And since the white cardstock I used was textured, it just added more dimension.

Whimsical and colorful, that's what I think when I see “Oh happy life” collection. The icons and color palette are versatile for telling any kind of story.

I put some flowers that you can find in the “Oh happy life” collection. I included in the layout clear stickers, Thickers, washi tape, and ephemera. I cuted some words from one of apart sheets and used them in the page as ephemera.

My title “smiles” was also made using Thickers from “On a whim” collection.

I liked the page as it was but I thought I could make it look a little bit more interesting. So I cut a half inch from one side of the cardstock, then I adhered it to this great white and yellow patterned paper from the “Oh happy life” collection. I love how it turned out!

This bright and fresh little collection really made my photos shine and I know it will do the same for yours. Next time you're stuck on what to scrapbook next, take a look at your products and see what stories you mind conjures up!

This flamingo wants to know...

Flamingo Emoji please!!

I mean seriously, right? Happy World Emoji Day!

Had some yellow paper on my desk leftover from a shoot and had to use my favorite new Tombow brush pens and the flamingo from this pack of inflated ephemera to draw this up.

On a Whim Watercolor Cards by Carson Riutta | Design Team

I’m going to take a wild guess here and assume that you probably have a thing for watercolor.  I certainly do, and sometimes I want to play with paints but I just don’t know what to create.  I’ve found that just sitting down and creating gradient washes on a card base can satisfy my watercolor urge and lay the groundwork for some pretty stunning greeting cards. 

I did just that for this set of fun and graphic cards using Amy’s On a Whim Collection.  When I’m looking for a vibrant wash of color I often grab my Tim Holtz Distress Stains.  They are very pigmented, translucent watercolors that always give striking results.  I simply dab a small bit of stain on a stamping block, spritz with a little water and begin painting on some watercolor paper cut to size.  To achieve the gradient you want to start the paint at one end of the paper and work your way toward the other end adding water to assure a lighter gradient as you work down the page. 

Once your watercolor is dry you can add foil die-cuts, translucent stickers, fabulous chipboard phrases and a whole bunch of colorful sequins to make your cards as playful and eye-catching as possible. I love the way all the fun and candy colored elements from the On A Whim Collection really pop off the vibrant watercolor backgrounds.

Getting watercolor paper to lay flat on a card front can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you didn’t take the time to stretch the paper before painting.  I’m an impatient crafter and rarely take such precautions, so I chose to stich the cards onto a false front before adhering them permanently to my card base.  The stitching simply helps to keep everything flat and in place as well as adds a wonderful bit of texture to the design. 

If you’re new to watercolor or simply looking for a quick and easy fix, I hope you’ll try painting a few gradient backgrounds for your own greeting card projects.  Amy’s designs always go so well with watercolor, it’s almost as if she designs it that way :)

Happy crafting friends!
