Marvelous Monday – April 4

Hello!  Ginni here with another Marvelous Monday posting.   Today I’m going to share a card I made with some Graphic 45 papers.  The intensity of the patterns and colors in the G45 lines can be intimidating, but I encourage you to take out your punches and just a couple of sheets of G45 (or any other patterned papers) and PLAY!  Experiment!  After all, it’s only paper!

For this card I used a dark background pattern for my base.  I used the B Kreaxions Stencil Template, Kreaxions Punch #916 and the Kreaxions circle cutter to create the large flower in the center.  This video should help you understand how the templates, Positioning Pieces and various punches work. 

 

Once I had my circle cut, I adhered it to the base and used the negative swirls around the outer edges.  I curled the edges of the “flower” up just a tiny bit and added some Stickles for oomph.  The two flowers in the center are white Prima flowers that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist and attached with a brad.  They got a tiny bit of Stickles treatment as well.  I punched a border with the Kreaxions Punch #919 and used more Stickles and the negatives to finish off the card. 

Simple, easy and fun!  That’s what I love about the Kreaxions products!

Don’t forget several DT members are challenging you to use your punches!  There’s a special prize randomly drawn at the end of the month!  My April challenge is that I challenge you to use more than one punch on your project and to use both the negative AND the positive from your punches!  You can use InLinkz to post your creation and be eligible for the April prize.  You get one draw for using any punch and two draws for using any Kreaxions punch!  Use the link below to post your creations. Can’t wait to see what you create! Happy Punching!

    I have been intimidated by G45 papers – you’re right, it is just paper! Thanks for sharing some inspiration!
