More GCD & Grafix Blog fun!!!

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Welcome friends! GCD Studios & Grafix have teamed up this week to bring you some fun projects with their awesome products! I was asked to join the fun and design a few things for your viewing pleasure. I'd like to start off with my Vellum butterflies. Who doesn't love butterflies to compliment their pages and cards? Fun and easy to create using Grafix Vellum, these butterflies dress up any project.

To create your own butterflies use a Spellbinders die to cut the butterflies and then run the vellum thru the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder to add dimension to your butterflies.


Next I created this fun notebook using Grafix Chipboard. Also embossing the chipboard with my Cuttlebug I used Tim Holtz distress inks over the embossed image and added ribbon and pearls. I cut plain paper for the inside of my notebook and hole punched the end of the chipboard and attached the two sides and paper with some Velvet brads. I finished it off with a Close To My Heart metal finding, some Prima lace, misc ribbon and a Hero Arts stamped image on Grafix Shrink Film.

This card was created in less than 10 minutes! I cut the cardstock, used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom of the cover. Then I embossed a peice of Grafix Vellum using the same folders as my Notebook, added pearls, stamped sentiment and tied some sheer ribbon at the top.

For my last project I used the Grafix Vellum, Shrink film and Craft Plastic. I embossed the craft platic and rubbed orange paint on it to make the embossed pumpkins stand out. I also used the Vellum as cardstock for the card and attached it to the base cardstock with brads. Finishing it off was a stamped leaf image on Shrink Film and sentiment from Inkadinkado.
