We're excited to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day with our Quick Quotes friends and fans! What better way than to have a fun blog hop!!! During our hop you will see inspiration from all of the Design Team for our current blog challenge. Please visit the blog for full details how to play along with our challenge.
This month's challenge is fussy cutting! Yep, cutting out some of those little details found in the graphics of the papers. This allows you to create some dimension and texture by inking the edges....with none other than the fabulous Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Inks, using pop dots to raise the cutting on the layout and layering the cut outs over other items including the photo.
This is the layout I created for this challenge:
I used the Summer Samba line here.....which has the best flowers to fussy cut!! Flowers are usually the go to item for me to fussy cut because you can do so much with them! In this case I cut a bunch of flowers out, cutting the petals loose too, then I inked the edges with Mango Mai Tai and on the bigger flowers I curled the petals around a pencil, the smaller I crumpled and straightened back out. When adhering the flowers to the layout itself I created clusters by layering and raising some up with pop dots.
The Quick Quotes PowerPuff Chalking Inks are a to die for product, I use them....alot!! The flourishes are actually taken from a larger Die Cut, The Whimsical Tree, I just trimmed off what I needed, used the Limeade and Green With Envy inks. The finish on the inks is amazing, so soft and powdery!
If you have followed the sequence in order, you are done and its time to head back to the Quick Quotes blog!
Here is the hop sequence just in case you get lost along the way!
