Good Morning! As my first post for Authentique, I decided to make both a layout and a card using Splendid
papers. Before joining the Authentique Design Team, I had not had the
chance to play with either line, and I loved finding ways in which to
mix the different colors.
Used AUTHENTIQUE: Splendid patterned papers-Delight Back, Richness Back, Foundations
Back, Renown Back, AUTHENTIQUE die cuts: Splendid Icons & Tabloids, AUTHENTIQUE Petite Type Squares)
(Other Supplies: kraft cardstock, American Crafts buttons, Twinery twine, Basic Grey
brads, Glossy Accents, Signo white pen)
really wanted to create a layered look, but wanted to keep the look of
the layout soft. To achieve this, I used a base of kraft paper, and let
the colors of the Splendid line speak for themselves. As you can see, I
really like using the backs of patterned paper!
For a lot of the smaller accents, I used Glossy Accents to make the great details in the Icons and Tabloids just a little extra sparkle.
I also chose to cut off the end of the
quote on the Icons piece. I felt that for these images, it created just
the perfect sentiment.
For my card, I used some of the scraps that I had leftover from my
layout. I used white cardstock for the base, and layered the Splendid
"Delight" Back (pink) with the Splendid Foundations Back (green). I then
added twine, a button, and a Blissful Icon for the sentiment. I also
used a paper punch on the green Foundations paper.
(Other Supplies: Twinery twine-Blossom, Basic Grey button, Staedler pen-yellow, Signo White pen, Martha Stewart punch)
tie in the yellow on the Splendid paper, I faux stitched the white
cardstock with a yellow pen, and then "stitched" the green Foundations
in white gel pen. I loved how the pink in the Blissful Icon popped on
the Splendid paper!
