Good morning all! This is my newest hybrid project for Matahati Designs. As many of you already know, I am part of the Creative Team for Matahati Designs and I couldn't be more extactic to represent their products.
Matahati's digital images kits are primarily used for digital scrapbooking but I was chosen to hi-light the endless possibilities of these images and show how they can be incorporated into my card making projects.
I used my Scrapbook Factory Deluxe software to work with these images from the Blooming Days kit which was released in March. Software does not have to be used but because I wanted to created one image from many I layered them using software. So I took the wagon and added the flowers and leaves and the twine ribbon (from the Vintage Charm kit) to create one image which I printed on heavy weight paper. So simple, this took me less than 5 minutes! Then I printed this beautiful background image and poped up my wagon image on adhesive dots and adhered them together. I then layed these images on SU!'s Baja Breeze card stock which coordinated perfectly. This entire image panel was adhered to a clear acrylic transparency which is my card base and I added some of my Grandmother's vintage lace from her stash and some pearl stickers for a fitting embellishment. What you can't see is that I added some Copic Spica in the center of the flowers and you should see how it twinkles. I really love the way this turned out and it took so litle time. Having these images to print out and use together is a real time saver and creates a beautiful project.
Here is a link to the gallery where you can browse some of the amazing projects of the Creative Team. And here is a link to the store where you can find all the beautiful current releases.
Did I mention that I am going to use this card for Mother's Day?
Hope you enjoyed viewing this as much as I enjoyed making it. I love that I can incorporate my computer and my cardmaking supplies. It brings my two loves together!
