Vintage Girl: Be Mine

card-annex-01-08

Coordinated embellishments and paper from Authentique’s “Lovely” collection emphasize the vintage style of the image on this card by designer Susie Moore.

The adorable little girl with the Valentines is a digital image that has been colored with Copic markers – except for her dress. The dress is paper pieced with the same red dot paper used for the background of the card, to create an image that is perfectly coordinated with the other elements from the Lovely collection. This look is easy to achieve with a digital or stamped image – simply print/stamp the image again on the patterned paper and cut it out!

Strong Girl: You Can Do It!

card-annex-01-05

Ombre is hot! We’re used to seeing ombre in a watercolor style, but our designer for the day, Susie Moore, reinterpreted it and created an ombre look here with patterned paper. The lightest area of the ombre gradation leads the eye perfectly to focus on the focal point image.

Small details can really help tell a story on a card. On this one, the pearls set a feminine tone but are contrasted by the more masculine twine – echoing the same visual contrast in the focal image. The twine also adds a thematic touch, appearing reminiscent of shoelaces and football pad ties.


Supplies | Patterned Papers: Authentique (Uncommon). Cardstock: PaperTrey Ink. Dies: Spellbinders (Oval and mat). Markers: Copic. Digital Stamp: Designed2Delight (Little Quarterback Girl). Twine & Pearls: Unknown.

CHA Supershow Anaheim 2010 Saturday Highlights

Saturday was the 2nd day of the consumer CHA Supershow in Anaheim, which preceded the opening of the CHA tradeshow this morning. Here’s a look at a few highlights from the day yesterday:

Heidi Grace Kress was hosting make-n-takes first thing in the morning at the Ever After Scrapbooks booth using her new Colorbök product.

One retailer was selling Copic markers for an incredible $2.69/each, and had this selection of Strathmore Artist Trading Cards paper bases were on sale Buy One, Get One Free. There was Canvas, Illustration Board, Watercolor Paper, and other materials cut into bases for ATC’s, as well as envelopes and plastic cases for them. I’d never seen these before and snapped up a selection to play with!

Stacy Julian appeared at the Treasured Memories booth to promote her new scrapbooking kits, and was handing out little bottles of emergency sprinkles in case a CHA-er comes across a brownie that doesn’t have sprinkles on it.

Cricut has a new machine called the Cricut Cake which is essentially a version of the Expression machine that has been specially fitted on the inside to handle food. Specifically it cuts thin sugar sheets and thicker fondant for cake decorating. More details (and pictures!) coming in separate post!

“Inside Edition” host Deborah Norville made an appearance to promote her new knitting book, “Knit with Deborah Norville“. She was also giving impromptu knitting lessons about how to do the technique for the mitten that she was working on at the signing table.

Die Cuts With a View had a computer lab set up in their booth to let people get hands-on with their new digital products at 300dpi.com.
