January Stack-a-holic Challenge with DCWV!

Happy Monday to you! It's sure cold here in Minnesota lately.

It's time for a brand new January Stack-a-holics Challenge over at DCWV and they have the perfect themed sketches to inspire you!

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Scrappity Dappity Doo!.
I do receive financial compensation and products from DCWV to develop certain blog posts,
but all of the ideas and opinions noted are my own.
I decided to use the DIY Project Stack for "Gift Decor Decorations" to create my card. The snowflake cluster begins with a base layer of a gold acetate snowflake, followed by a gold paper die cut, silver foil paper die cut and another gold foil snowflake die cut on top.

The sweet little gold bow and the "Cheers" sentiment banner are also from the stack. I added in a few gold enamel dots and a bit of vellum and cheesecloth for texture.

We sure hope you take a minute and join in with us this month for our challenge!  Here are the sketches:

Love is... featuring ScrapBerry's Primavera

Wednesday greetings to you! I have a fun project that I created for the ScrapBerry's Blog to share with you today.

I have a romantic inspired page in honor of Valentine's Day featuring the Primavera collection. The inspiration for this page is a silly photo from Facebook. I found the sentiment on it to be so true and wanted to celebrate the silly that is shared in our relationships. To me, having a great laugh with my loved ones is the best!

To begin my page, I applied a bit of modeling paste with a stencil, then added some mist splatters in coordinating teal, blues, gold and silver. After selecting my paper to mat the photo to, I knew I wanted to have nice texture on the page so I also added a bit of corrugate.

A bit of white chalk ink was applied to the corrugate and around my photo collage to provide a soft distressed appearance. I used a stencil brush to work the ink into the paper with a soft look. After I framed the collage, I knew I wanted to add this technique around the outer border as well.

The white Chipboard Tag Frame in a scalloped oval shape I cut apart and used in opposing areas to help create the visual triangle in my design. A bit of pearl paint was added in coral, mint and pink to blend with the color scheme.

A few details so you can see some of the textures within the layers. I started with the drywall tape, added mist and ink splatters, then the white chalk ink distressing, followed by the washi tape. A few accent die cuts from the papers are added as well.

Holiday Inspiration with JustRite Papercraft

Crafty greetings to you sweet friends!

I have a holiday card to share with you today featuring some of the pretty dies and stamps by JustRite Papercraft. The papers are Maja Designs "Home for the Holidays" collection.

I used the Quatrefoil background die and layered some vellum behind. On top of this I've used the Snowflake and Tag dies and the sentiment block from the Heart and Frame dies set.

The pretty florals here are by JustRite as well. A few touches of Antique Linen ink coordinated with the papers wonderfully.

Finishing touches are a few metal embellishments, gems and stick pins from my stash.
