Guest Artist - Club Scrap Ivy League Card kit

Hello! This month Club Scrap invited me to be the Guest Artist for the Ivy League Card Kit! I'm so excited to share my take on the cards in this collection. I used the unmounted rubber stamps and some elements from the Page Kit to make my creations.

Set A

I used Distress Oxides the make the backgrounds for various parts of this card. I stamped some of the unmounted rubber stamp images around the edges. I used the stencil from the Page kit to create the design in the middle of the tag. 

I used the cut aparts with the card kit and blended oxides in multiple colors onto the panel. 

For the front of the card base I started with piece of white cardstock and blended Oxides onto it. Then I spritzed and dripped water to oxidize the ink.

I used the unmounted rubber stamp image repeatedly for the background of the card base. Then I stamped the larger unmounted rubber stamp image over the top of that. 

Here I used the stencil and brown ink to create the images on the card base. I also stenciled part of the image onto the cut apart for the tag.

The ribbon and red matte on the base are from the page kit.

Set B

I blended Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink on the panel, then spritzed water through the stencil to create the background.

I used blue sparkly embossing powder on the unmounted rubber stamp images for the front panel. I used a piece of the green from the page kit for the matte behind the front panel.

I used distress oxides and the stencil from the page kit for this background. Then I stamped the unmounted rubber stamp image and used black embossing powder.

I used an unmounted rubber stamped image over and over on the front panel.

Set C

I placed all 4 panels together and stamped with the unmounted rubber stamps.

For the Luminary card I used a die cut to cut out the panels. Then I backed them with a piece of vellum. I used embossing powder on the unmounted rubber stamped images at the bottom of each side.

I used a fancy dies cut shape to create the openings. 

I matted each side with a piece of patterned paper from the page kit. In 2 corners I poked a hole for the string.

I threaded the embellishments onto the string and stretched it across to the opposite corner. I tied it off and tucked it behind the matte with a little glue to hide the knot.

I spritzed the base of the card with blue glitter ink. I used the pieces I die cut from the luminary card and stamped an image from the unmounted rubber stamps.

I had so much fun changing up these cards a little-there's so much you can do beyond just the basic card kit! Check out the blog post on The Club Scrap Website!

Have a great day!
