Welcome lovelies to our first monthly Rerun!
Each Rerun will provide plenty of inspiration focusing upon a featured product, a month-long sale on the featured product and a challenge.
For our first Rerun we are concentrating on Parentville Extras. With father's day just around the corner this set should come in handy. You aren't limited to father's day and mother's day as this set includes sentiments and images that are pretty basic and can work in many different ways. If you miss the word "mom" and "dad" you may want to add Parentville to your stamp collection.
We (Julie + Shay) and some of the Talent including our Talent in Residence, Heather Hoffman, have taken on the challenge of working with Parentville Extras again.
Parentville Extras is such a versatile set with its variety of parent names, but also for all of its small sentiments and hearts and stars. So I pulled from the sentiments and hearts to create this card for a friend of mine that lives so far away.
The back panels and tags are cut from white cardstock and vellum using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. I stamped the white tag with the rose and leaf stamps from In Bloom: Lola’s Bouquet with Joni Andaya and covered it with the vellum tag to create a softer look. I then stamped and embossed the “missing you” sentiment from Parentville Extras on the vellum tag and adhered the friend die-cut piece from The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaways. Once placement of the tag was decided, I stamped the small heart from Parentville Extras in a lighter pink. I saw my box of stickles and they were begging to be used, so I added Diamond stickles to the friend, hearts and some dots to give this card some sparkle.
For Parentville Extras I wanted to show how to use the same design and main stamp set along with some additional items to create two different cards. One is a father's day card and the other for a friend.
Card No. 1
I wanted to do a father's day card as the day is coming up...of course I could also save this one for a birthday so that is an even better thing.
I did something fun for this card. I die cut the chain from Goldie Trim Cutaways from a scrap of cork. I then used some adhesive and attached the cork to an acrylic block and inked it up and stamped with it in Tim Holtz Distress Ink in weathered wood for a nice textured appearance onto the smaller rectangle layer from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. Over every other stamped chain I adhered the chain die cut from grey cardstock.
On a strip of grey cardstock I stamped "you're a five star" from Parentville Extras. On a bold blue piece of cardstock I stamped "pop" from Parentville Extras with Versamark and heat embossed it in silver cutting the right end into a banner. The pop strip is also the only pop of color. I adhered the strips onto the cardstock layer. I also cut out another strip of grey cardstock and adhered it below the pop strip. On the bottom grey strip I added stars cut from silver, white and grey cardstock using Big Bang Confetti Cutaways. I also added some of the sci-fi star shapes to the background. I then added the layer to a white card base using foam dimensional adhesive.
Card No. 2
For this card I started with a piece of patterned paper from the Up in the Clouds Collection by Pinkfresh Studio die cut using the smaller rectangle layer from Essentials: Katharine Cutaways. I die cut the In a Word: Friend Cutaway from yellow-orange cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper. I cut out two stripes of white cardstock, On one I stamped the sentiment from Parentville Extras in Distress Ink in broken china and used die cut stars and sci-fi stars from Big Bang Confetti Cutaways. I adhered the white strips above and below friend. I added some more sci-fi stars to the background. Then I adhered the patterned paper panel to a white card base using dimensional foam adhesive.
