Be Joyful layered card

9 Apr

If you have been with me for any length of time (thanks, by the way) you may know that I’ve been designing for Cut Card Stock for several years and before that, Spellbinders Paper Arts. I’ve designed a lot of cards over the years but the one I just created is a new favorite for me.Image

I’m not sure what it is but I think the colors, the balance, the sentiment, the die-cuts just came together beautifully. Thankfully some days are just like that.

If you want to check out the instructions, click here for the blog poast. Or head over to the CutCardStock.com to see all their products.

Happy Easter to all…and have a creative day. Eli

Frillions is Back!! Hooray!

17 Jul

Hello Friends of Frillions…

We made our move and have unpacked everything but the Christmas boxes and the memorabilia boxes (which I promise to do over the next year or so…lol).

It’s great to be back, creating again. Just a quick note that I’ve started another blog, “At Home in Palm Beach.” It’s on that other hosting site…just give a click to check it out. Just something a little different from here.

So, to get back into the groove, I chose one of my favorite inspirations site: Card Positioning System (CPS) and sketch #227…check it out:

I went with a stamp I’ve had for a while but hardly ever used. I stamped it in several colors on white paper and then decided which way I wanted to take it. The dark blue ink struck me as the way to go…

Which turned into this:

Just want to keep it short tonight. If you need any supply info, just send me a note and I’ll fill you in on the duds.

It’s great to be back. Cheers, Eli

Mom!

30 Apr

Joining the Fantabulous Cricut challenge blog this week, I created a card using the Doodletype and Cindy Loo cartridge. The challenge, “Mom’s the Word,” was to include a mom word in a card for Mother’s Day. I have a fab mom and a wonderful Mother-in-law so I need two cards. This is the first:

One of my favorite color combos is pink and brown. I first chose the diamond/rose patterned paper that lies under the brown frame. Since the roses had a creamy sheen so I added a bit of a yellow underneath the letters and with the brown filigree. Things just came together from there.

Here is a close up of the medallion and flower.

Important Stuff
Papers Candelight Harlequin Roses, Rose Pink Fondant (Flair); Yellow (K&Co.)
Die Cuts Doodletype Font and Medallion Cindy Loo (Cricut)
Embellishments Mystical Mauve glitter (Sparkle and Sprinkle), Nut Brown sprinkles (Flower Soft), Quickie Glue (Sakura)

Other Stuff PVA glue, pink ribbon, silk flower, brown cardstock

Welcome Baby!

10 Apr

Some dear just had a baby girl so I got this new digital stamp, Baby Sarah and Toys from by LORi Designs. I used the sketch at Card Positioning System to put together the card. All in good fun, I say!!!

This card will welcome baby Catherine as soon as I can get it in the mail…

I wanted to create something with a modern touch, using the browns, greens and lavender. I think I succeeded.

5 Apr

I love this little stamp and when I saw the colors from Color Throwdown last week, I knew I would use it with some die cut strawberries. Check out this grouping of colors:

I turned those colors into this card.

Lots of die cuts adorn this card but the fun fringe around the red mat was made by those shredding scissors…how fun is that?

Here’s a little close-up.

A Friend Loves

3 Apr

Proverbs 17:17 says, “A Friend Loves at all Times,” and this quote inspired the project of a journal/thank you gift for a friend. I used the colors and Floral inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room blog challenge this week. I love the colors, patterns and bird images in this.

Here is my interpretation with a 7×7″ journal:

I love how this came together, especially this patterned paper by K&Co. Yummy!! The addition of a stamped bird, layered flowers and beautiful ribbon, really brought it to a completion and I think my friend will be blessed by it…I hope so! Here are a couple more images for your enjoyment!
