Hello, friends!  Keely here to share with you a fun project I created with our new 8"x10" Art Prints.  These amazing prints coordinate with our fabulous Authentique collections.  They're great to frame or as a starter for a fun project.  I love the beautiful, happy sayings.

I knew when I saw this Art Print, I wanted to create a project featuring my sons.  But, how would I incorporate photos with this 8"x10" print?  I started with an 11"x14" canvas.  It was the perfect size for my Art Print and 6 of my favorite photos printed to 2"x3".


I added a decorative sticker strip to the bottom of the Art Print, fun Radiant diecuts, and plaid ribbon.  I adhered more stickers and diecuts to the photo centers with dimensional foam.  To finish my fun project, I adhered the same plaid ribbon around the edges of the canvas.  I love how this project turned out.  I have it displayed on a table top easel in my room.  It just makes me smile.


What fantastic projects can you create with the new Art Prints?  The possibilities are endless.

Supplies:
Authentique "Radiant" collection, Art Print
11"x14" canvas
Offray ribbon
Scor-Pal Scor-Tape
Glue Arts dimensional foam tape

Authentic Art Prints Inspiration Week- "Harmony" Home Decor


This week we are featuring one of our BRAND NEW products.... the Authentic Art Prints! These 8x10 prints come in 3 of our new collections- "Favorite," "Radiant," and "Harmony." These Art Prints are ready to add to any scrapbook page or simply put in a frame to add flair to any bare wall, and perfect for home decor projects!

Hello, everyone...Shellye here today with a quick
home decor idea using the new Art Prints by Authentique
and an 8X8 Wooden Shadowbox.
You can find the Art Prints in the current collections:
Harmony, Radiant and Favorite

 The hardest part of this project: deciding which print to use. I went with this one mainly because the art work could be centered in the frame.

I cut the print down to an 8X8 size and then added sections of the border sticker to the top and bottom of the design. I capped off the ends with some mustard colored adhesive pearls.

With shadowboxes, you can use as much foam adhesive as you'd like! I layered together some hand-cut butterflies and banner punch-outs from the Harmony Collection.

While the Art Prints look beautiful on their own in a standard frame, I thought it would be fun to show how much you could change the look with the addition of a few embellishments!  It makes a unique gift for those who tend to have everything :)  Add your own personal touch and they're sure to love it!

Thank you for joining us today at Authentique!

I created this layout with one of my favorite pics of me and my sweetheart on a recent trip.  For the kraft background, I used a sheet of paper from the Authentique "Accomplished" collection.  I wanted a fun, whimsical design with lots to say.  My sweetie says I talk A LOT, so this layout makes me giggle with all of the stamping and journaling stickers/diecuts.


I used circles and strips of patterned paper to center my photo.  Lots of great Avery Elle stamps are used with bright red ink.  I stamped lots of those great patterned hearts and adhered with dimensional adhesive.  I decided to keep the chipboard cloud and houses by Want2Scrap blank to add dimension but not compete with the patterned paper and stamping for color.


Are you stamping on your projects?  Create the most fun and unique accents by adding stamping to your creations.

Supplies:
Authentique "Adventure" collection
Authentique "Accomplished" paper
Avery Elle "Lots of Love" stamp set
Tsukineko MementoLuxe Ink--Peanut Brittle
Tsukineko StazOn Ink-Blazing Red
Want2Scrap chipboard, self-adhesive pearls
Scor-Pal Scor-Tape
Glue Arts dimensional foam adhesive

I was really excited when I found out that the Authentique Design Team was going to get to play with Avery Elle stamps this week. I have been having fun with the stamps, and was excited to try out some paper piecing with the Cupcakes Photopolymer Stamps and the bright Radiant Collection.
I started with the cupcake for this card. I really wanted to showcase the fun little additions that you get to choose. On this card, I chose to add the sprinkles and the candle. The cupcake itself has two variations on the wrapper, and three toppings to choose from. Each card can be unique!
For the candle, I stamped on the orange side of Beaming and on the multicolored side of Sprightly. I cut out each version of the candle, but cut off the flame on the multicolored version. Then I adhered the two together and added a little more color with my alcohol markers to make the stripes stand out more.
I adhered this to the cupcake which I had stamped on two sections. The frosting was stamped on Beaming, and the base was stamped onto Sprightly. I stamped the sprinkles in two colors, then added the candle. I then cut each piece out and used some dimensional adhesive to pop the cupcake up.
The banner was pieced together using a piece of cardstock that was layered onto a similarly shaped piece of Foundation Two. I placed that under the cupcake and furled up the ends just a bit to add more interest. Then I faux stitched the Foundations paper then added some sequins for a bit of sparkle. 
Hope you enjoyed this sweet birthday card. I loved using the Avery Elle stamps and cannot wait to make more fun variations of each of the cupcakes.

Supplies Used:
Authentique Paper: Radiant Collection (Beaming, Sprightly, Foundation One, Foundaiton Two)
Avery Elle Stamps: Cupcakes Photopolymer Stamps
Other Supplies: cardstock, dimensional adhesive, sequins, marker, ImagineCrafts Inks (Memento-Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic-Turquoise Gem), Prima ink (Rose Bud)

Summer is here in full swing, which means that I naturally want to be outside and enjoy all the sun that I can!  For that reason, I wanted to share with you a couple of quick card ideas with a couple of paper collections from Authentique that have that summer feel to them.  And what card wouldn't be complete with some great sentiment stamps from Avery Elle?!?

This "Happy Birthday" card uses the Harmony paper collection, with some summer themed prints in natural hues.  I'm all about saving time to get outside, which is why the Harmony card making stack is a must for making quick cards!  I chose for the card base the "Awakening" butterfly pattern.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is stamped on one of the "Life Cards" which are perfect for card making and collage, especially since I don't partake in the "Project Life" craze LOL  This was layered on a solid piece of olive "Foundation Two" paper.  The butterfly was die cut using the "Vitality" and "Beauty" papers from the 6 x 6 Harmony bundle.  I love using the bundles because they feature the same great prints found on the 12 x 12 sized paper but the pattern is smaller which makes it perfect for cards.
To brighten things up a bit, I used the Radiant collection for this fun card.  The card base and basic layer is from the "Foundation One" and "Foundation Two" papers.  The printed paper I used for the background was the "Beaming" paper with it's fun sun rays.  The triangles feature different prints from the 6 x 6 Bundle which I edged with Electric Neon inks.  The sentiment is stamped on one of the Life Cards and then die cut down to shape.  Seriously, quick and easy card to create and I actually made a few of these up in no time at all and left the sentiment panels blank so I could switch out the sentiment for any occasion.

Hope this has given you some ideas for saving time to create awesome cards this summer!
Supplies:
Authentique Paper "Harmony" and "Radiant" paper collections

IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko  Memento Luxe Rose Bud, Memento Angel Pink and Pistachio, Radiant Neon Electric Pink and Blue
