Cards | A Handmade Nest for Mom

ca0414mom

Designer Terri Davenport is here today with a unique take on Mother’s Day greetings! We often use the word “nest” in connection with moms and their role in our life…why not put a handmade one on a Mother’s Day card?

In Terri’s own words, here’s her handy technique for making this cute embellishment!

1. Create nest by adhering jute to cardstock. Start in the center and wrap in a spiral. When the nest is the correct size, wrap a few strands upwards to add depth. Tuck the end of the jute under the edge. To note: It may be good to start with a piece of cardstock larger than what’s actually needed. If the nest is off center, it’s easy to trim the edges of the cardstock and center the nest.

2. The eggs are created from buttons. Punch holes in white sticker paper and add dots to the eggs. This gives the eggs their spotted design as well as covering the button holes.

3. Add ribbon, patterned paper and nest/egg accent to card. Finish card with sticker letters.

Supplies | Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white). Ribbon: Offray. Patterned Paper: American Crafts. Letter Stickers: Simple Stories. Other: jute, buttons, sticker paper.

Technique Tuesday | Bon Voyage

 

bonvoyage

Today’s installment of Technique Tuesday feature week on Card Annex takes us to Happyville (and not just because it is Friday!). Designer Terri Davenport worked with a Travel stamp set that is part of the Happyville series of stamps from Technique Tuesday:

Technique Tuesday Happyville Travel

The Happyville series consists of elements like houses, vehicles, people, and other design elements to make scenes with.

Here’s Terri’s description of how she created her card:

1. Create the card base with the raven cardstock and add patterned paper.
2. Stamp the border and the plane on white cardstock. Cut out plane leaving small white border.
3. Cut the banner into a strip and then notch the end. Coil the banner starting at the beginning. Release, keeping a small tight fold at the beginning.
4. Tie a loop of embroidery thread. Hide the knot in the fold of the banner and place the point under the plane.
5. Adhere pieces to card.

Due to the coiling, the banner already had dimension. I used foam adhesive to give added dimension to the plane.

Supplies | Stamps: Technique Tuesday (Happyville-Travel). Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white), Bazzill Basics (raven). Ink: Colorbox (black). Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle (Little Sport). Other: embroidery thread.

My Mind’s Eye | Thanks

 

mmethanks46

Terri Davenport is here today to bring us the final installment of our My Mind’s Eye feature week highlighting their new CHA Winter 2013 collections! Today, we are highlighting the Boy Crazy collection once again in this fun “thank you” card.

Balloons are trendy, and this one makes a great makeshift banner to carry our card’s sentiment on. The blue literally pops off the card and highlights the gracious message!

To balance the visual weight of the chipboard piece, Terri layered twill and baker’s twine at the bottom for an interesting piece of texture. It also covers the seam between the two patterned papers to keep it from looking awkward.

Supplies |  Cardstock: Core’dinations. Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” (Point the Way). Chipboard: My Mind’s Eye (Boy Crazy). Alphabet Stickers: Simple Stories. Twill: Stampin’ Up!. Baker’s Twine: unknown.

Make A Wish

cabirthday022813

 This fun and simple card by Card Annex designer Terri Davenport brings some hybrid elements to your card making!

Terri describes how she made the sentiment block:

To create the circle sentiment, I used the word “a” from the word brush set and layered it with a typed sentiment. I then printed it on photo paper and punched it with a circle punch.

The rest of the card is very simple (but effective), created with a block of patterned paper – the design echoes the round sentiment block – and a strip of themed patterned paper.

Supplies | Cardstock: Bazzill Basics. Patterned paper: American Crafts (dotted), Bella Blvd (candles). Digital Brush: Designer Digitals (Essential Words by Ali Edwards). Punch: Fiskars (circle). Font: Code Bold.

Thinking of You

CAthinkingofyou021513

For this fairly straightforward and quick card, designer Terri Davenport utilized the brand new just-in-stores collection called Boy Crazy that My Mind’s Eye released at CHA Winter 2013.

One of the major design features of this card is the text in the sentiment. Terri used the center of the chipboard circle to take the place of the “o” in you. Also, she was running out of a few of the alpha rub-on letters, so she mixed two different sizes/styles and also turned a “z” on its side to create an “n”.

With the bold patterned paper, and the big text embellishments, this card didn’t need much else. Terri just finished it off with a quick wrap of baker’s twine, and that was the perfect finishing touch! The yellow striped twine repeated the yellow bands on the chipboard element, appearing perfectly “tied” together!

Supplies | Cardstock: Core’dinations. Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye “Boy Crazy” (Diamonds). Chipboard: My Mind’s Eye (Boy Crazy). Alphabet Stickers: Simple Stories. Rub-ons: Doodlebug Designs. Baker’s Twine: Twinery.
