Suite Showcase no.8 - Enjoy the Adventure


How are you? It's so nice to have some lighter nights, now we just need the weather to catch on that it's Spring!
For this week's Suite Showcase, I'm sharing projects using the Enjoy the Adventure memories and more pack. These packs are fabulous for scrapbooking and card making. They include two different sized card layers and 4 sheets of stickers. On top of this, you can purchase card blank and envelopes (pack of 20) separately, that co-ordinate beautifully; then you can let your imagination run free knowing that they will all work together. But get these soon as they're due to retire at the end of this month (April) and are currently significantly reduced!

I started with half a pack and added some extra card bases to it and ended up with 13 cards! I just couldn't stop once I got going.

When I started, I kept things fairly simple and just layered some of the memories and more onto the card blanks and added a sticker or two for embellishments (stars and flowers) and finished off with Black & White Gingham Ribbon and some soon to be retiring Matte Black Dots.

Another simple looking one is this one, but the only difference is, I fussy cut the sentiment out of one of the layers included in the pack, as well as trimming down the black and white thank you panel from another layer. 

For the next set of cards, I used the card blanks from the separate pack that's available for purchase. This time I used some of the smaller layers and mat them onto some Basic Black card stock. I added them to the card blanks at an angle and trimmed off anything that overhung. I again used black & white gingham ribbon around one layer and our gorgeous Balmy Blue variegated ribbon on the other. 

To step up my next cards, I simply added a 2 1/4" punch. The card on the left I punched out the sentiment from the top layer and then turned it over. I layered the top piece and the sentiment on dimensionals. For the card on the right, I punched a hole in the top layer and then adhered a smaller card layer from the pack to the back for the sentiment. I trimmed this down to add a Basic Black layer behind and adhered this to the card blank on dimensionals. I added flower and leaf stickers for embellishments and the additional congrats sentiment.

These next cards, I added a layer of vellum on one and then, again, used one of the smaller layers and added to Basic Black with a quarter inch border. For the one on the right, I used a Balmy Blue card base. To this, I trimmed off one of the card blanks for the background and added to a Basic Black layer with a very small border (about 3mm). I wrapped the ribbon around this layer and adhered this flat to the card base. The top layer is one of the smaller ones included in the pack, which I mounted on Basic Black. I then added the butterfly sticker to the dogs nose. The hearts are also a sticker which I trimmed down.

The final two cards, I added some embossed layers and brought in some circle punches. For the card on the left, I trimmed one of the larger layers down into strips and added to a piece of Basic Black which I then added to a Petal Park card base. From the pack, I chose the smaller layer with the black and white border and trimmed this to size and added a petal pink layer that was embossed. I punched a 2" circle from vellum and completed the card with the stickers and Matte Black Dots. For the card on the right, I used a Basic Black card base. I embossed a layer of Mint Macaron and adhered this flat to the base. I pulled out the Mint Macaron layer from the pack and adhered this to a layer of Basic White and wrapped it in black & white gingham ribbon with a little bow to the left. I punched a 2 1/4' vellum layer and a 2" Basic Black circles. The dog, is a sticker from the pack as is the sentiment. As with the majority of my other cards, I finished with matte black dots.

And did you notice...not a stamp involved! These are great for beginners who like things to coordinate but also for those that like to scrapbook.

Hope you like these cards. Why not head over to see what Alison has been making at The Inkspirational Crafter.
