You're Just My Style with Dorlene!

Hi there, it's Dorlene and this month I'll be making some fun cards using pieces from one of the June Club Q kits. The projects included in the Club Q kits are fabulous but don't forget - you can always create your own projects!

This is the contents of one of the project kits that I’ll be using today:

I love the colors and all the embellishments so tried to use as many of them as I could. You'll see that I used one sheet of the 12x12 pattern paper, the yellow strip and red patterned paper.

First thing I did was cut the 12 x 12 piece into four 5 1/4" pieces and inked with Lipstick PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I cut the left over strip into four 3 x 4 pieces and used the backside. I inked those with Light Moss PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

I then cut the yellow strip into 3” pieces and inked the edges with Sandy Shore PowderPuff Chalk Ink. I also stamped the sentiment directly on the strips using Cool Gray PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

I stamped the frog image directly to the paper for placement.

  • Added ink around the frog image with Sandy Shore PowderPuff Chalk Ink to create a shadow and base for the frog.
  • Punched a starburst from clear vellum
  • Gathered black thread and use the enamel dots from the kit to adhere it down.
  • Included in the kit is a cardstock piece with tags so I punched them all out and used the left over piece to cut 4” pieces and punched the edge with a notebook punch to add some more color and interest.
  • Stamped the frog image with onto white cardstock and colored the image with Cactus and Light Moss PowderPuff Chalk Inks
  • Finally, fussy cut and adhered to the card with 3D foam dots.

I think they turned out so cute! The sentiment is perfect for any occasion.
