Chantilly Cream Trio of Cards

Hello everyone, Patti here sharing a trio of cards I've made with the gorgeous Chantilly Cream collection from Meg's store.  I may have a bit or bob here or there from one of the previous lines but it's primarily Chantilly Cream. 


This first card is the largest at 5" x 7" on a cream cardstock base.  I love the purples!  I even changed up  the cream colored Gardenias from the store and tipped them with Tim Holtz Distress ink in the new Wilted Violet so they'd blend better with the rest.


This card has 3 layers and each layer is matted with a solid purple mat.  I've distressed each one with the Tim Holtz distressor. I tucked some bits of purple lace that my friend Manuela made for me between the layers and ended with the Dream tag from a previous collection.


The bottom of the card is wrapped with purple ribbon from the store and slipped behind it is a little tuck in for a special message.  I finished it off with this gorgeous butterfly that has just a hint of sparkle from Diamond Stickles.


Card two is a 6" x 5" card using the same cream cardstock (Spellbinders Celebra'tions Cuddle Cream cardstock).  I rounded the card base corners with my 1/2" Corner Chomper and used the Scallop Chomper on the mats.  Everything was inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in the oldie but goodie Vintage Photo.  


I was so taken with these lovely polka dotted flowers which are called Powder Puff Lychee, I clustered one with some bits of lace tucked behind along with loops of burlap and the gauze ribbon. Wrapped along the side of the one mat is Ivory Jute Ribbon

My inside journaling mat has been pushed and shoved here and there from a collection several times back, I had bent the bottom of it and just couldn't find the right spot to place it.  Well it worked perfectly for the inside, and the bottom that was bent?  I fold it under and glued it to the back, perfect, looks like that's what I'd planned all along! So as I always say, what doesn't work today may be just the thing for the next project!


The last of the trio is a standard A2 sized card, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" on a Kraft cardbase.  This has lots of layers of strips of paper torn and inked.  The focal image, the flowers was taken from one of the Chantilly Cream cut aparts.  I used two of them layering the buds and blossoms on top of one another to give dimension.  All but the scalloped lace are from Meg's store.


I ran the lace through the openings on my tag and tied it in the front and then tied a strip of coffee stained seam binding around that.  Love all the little pieces of lace and ribbon on this card.


Inside I added a mat topped with the Botanical strip from the collection.  Along the bottom I added a butterfly I'd saved from a prior collection.

I hope you've enjoyed my trio of cards and will join me on the video for a more in depth look at them. Be sure and check out Meg's store for a delightful array of papers, laces, flowers and what nots. Wonderful embellishments for your next project.  And don't forget you can also download the paper in digital format to have and print instantly at home.

TWO ROSE QUARTZ CARDS by MIRIAM

ROSE QUARTZ CARDS

Hello everyone, Miriam here. I have used the beautiful Rose Quartz paper from Meg's Garden  again this month, I just love the soft mauve colour I haven't used too many embellishments as I didn't want to cover the paper.
Lace and cream flower are from Meg's Garden with white flowers, purple rose buds and chip board from my stash.







Just loved making these cards and will use this beautiful paper again.

Upcycled gift bag with Rose Quartz

Hello again, Kelly-ann Oosterbeek here today with an upcycled gift bag ...

 this project is a very quick and easy one, and is super handy for getting together 
a really special gift bag for a really special occasion ... and best of all,
 for the base you can just use any old gift bag you may have been hanging onto :)

So this is what it looks like after I've attacked it with the Rose Quartz Collection...





And this is how we got there ...




This was the gift bag I started with ... it was made of nice thick cardboard 
so perfect to support all the embellishments I wanted to stick onto it :)

Next I cut out a cardstock base to both sides...




Then I added lace and washi tape to the edges...



Then I started adding the Rose Quatrz papers and some flowers ...



Then I just kept going with the embellishments from the Rose Quartz Collection...


I finished with some bling and butterflies and 
stuck the two sides to the sides of the gift bag using some really study glue.


And that's it! :)


 Thanks for popping by the blog today.

Cheers from Kelly Ann xo

4 SPECIALTY CARDS WITH ROSE QUARTZ COLLECTION - by LIZ HOCKING

Hello Bloggers,

Liz here with you today showcasing the wonderful new Rose Quartz Collection from Meg's Garden. 
I have used  Rose Quartz Papercrafter pack which is a perfect accompaniment for your cards.  
Firstly here is a 'look see' at the 3 cards and following you can see them in more detail.

 This collection is well suited to 'specialty' cards and the first one I would like to share with you is my 'arch' card.

 A little bit of fussy cutting to set off the printed  paper.

 Then teamed with a little metal butterfly from Meg's Garden 


Next is a little 'peek-a-boo' card

It certainly is amazing how you can use this wonderful Papercraft pack.  Next is a little triangle card which worked perfectly with some of Meg's Garden lace and flowers.



Finally for you, I have created a 'acetate window' card.  Unfortunately it is a little hard to see that it is a window, but I know you will get the idea.    Petals, leaves and lace  fitted so well in the window.

I hope you have enjoyed today's journey through the Rose Quartz Collection and for more of the collection please visit http://megsgarden.com/
Thanks for taking the time to look and see you next time.....Happy Scrapping......Liz

Mothers Day Inspired Gift Set


Hello all and welcome to my post for Meg's Garden.  Today's project has been inspired by Mother's Day, which is just around the corner.  I have created a unique and softly feminine gift giving collection.  The beautiful colours and soft tones in the Rose Quartz Papers lends itself perfectly for that special gift for Mum.

 My first two creations are a card and matching paperbag envelope that I have altered to

 To create the paperbag envelope, I have folded the base of the paper bag up and glued down both sides to create a pocket for one of the Cut and Create  tags


and I have slipped my card into the bag opening.


 My card is quite simple, just a piece of folded baby pink cardstock.  I have used a border punch down one side and also accented with a white cardstock border.  I have used more of the Cut and Create sheet, large Gardenia, dusty pink ribbon, twine, baby paper roses and a fancy frame. I have inked all my edges with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress ink.


 I have also added the punch borders to the inside of the card.


My next creation from this gift set is an altered white glass jar.  I am sorry readers, but I have no before pics, but I do have a bit of a tutorial on how I added the Cut and Create label.

I fussy cut one of the labels from the Cut and create sheet.  However I found that the paper was a little thick and wanted to crinkle around the edges.  So I decided to gently rub back some of the layers.  I gently spritzed the back of the label


 and then ever so lightly, I rubbed the back of the label till it started to "ball up".

 I repeated this a couple of times, being very careful not to rip or remove too much.
 Once I had removed enough layers  that the label now sat flush, with hardly any wrinkling or crinkling, I glued it into place with some mod podge.


and then sealed it with some Jo Sonja's decoupage varnish.



 

 And last, but not least is my gift bag.  I have a few of these little craft paper bags in my stash and this was the perfect size for my altered jar.

I have used ....... Rose Quartz to decorate the front and the back. To embellish I have used the large metal filligree rose and layered a cream gardenia to it.  I have also used the cream trim and lace from our kit.  I fussy cut   the "Love You" tag from the Cut and Create to tuck in behind the flower as an added sentiment.





Items I have used to create my projects are:-


Thank you for joining me today.  
....till next time
remember to live your bliss......
