Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Graphic 45 is having an open audition for their design team, and I am submitting these projects for consideration.

Inks, Smooch Spritz, Design Adhesives and Foils, Embossing Powders: Clearsnap
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern papers: G45
Stamps: Hot Off the Press
Dies: Spellbinders
Stencils: Hampton Arts

G45 papers were cut into elements and matted with cardstock. Clearsnap inks and design adhesives and foils were used around the focal photo.

Stencils were used with inks and Vanilla Smooch Spritz was used before adding the photo.

Merry Christmas Card
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper: G45
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo
Inks, Embossing Powder: Clearsnap
Dies: Spellbinders
Punch: Fiskars

G45 papers worked well for this Christmas card. The bells were inked with 2 colors of ink, lightly spritzed with water and then stamped. Clear embossing powder was added for a little shimmer.

Get Well Card
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper: G45
Stamps: Hero Arts, MSE
Brads: Basic Grey
Ink: Clearsnap, Mix'd Media Inx
Dies: Spellbinders

A strip of G45 paper was used as the backgound for my stamped image. The ribbon just added a nice touch of dimension. The stamp was inked with Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx and embossed, then die cut into the shape I wanted. Since I had room on the right side of the card, I added a sentiment stamped in Black Mix'd Media Inx and embossed.

G45 Inks were used on the tag and the stamped image to create a fun little gift package.

Hello Card
Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper: G45
Dies: Cricut Expression, Wild Card Cartridge
Inks, Embossing Powder: Clearsnap
Other: Machine stitching

I used my Cricut Expression and Wild Card Cartridge to create the card, using G45 papers for the circles. The telephone was cut with the Cricut to mimic the G45 image.

Purse and Shoe

Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper: Authentique
Ink: Clearsnap
Scoring tool: Scor-Pal
Brads: Making Memories
Flower: Prima

Who wouldn't love to receive this as a gift? The shoe was free hand cut, scored and inked. A little bag of candy was added inside. The little purse is just big enough to hold a gift card or some small candies.

Uncle Rob

Cardstock: Bazzill, Bo Bunny
Pattern paper: Kaiser
Brads: Bo Bunny
Dies: Cricut Expression, Destination and Jubilee Cartridges
Ink: Clearsnap
Embossing: Cuttlebug

One of the only photos I have of my mother's brother who served in North Africa during WW2. I loved the selection of papers and the Cricut cuts I used.

The elephants were cut from Bo Bunny cardstock with my Cricut Expression and inked for dimension.

The title was cut with the Destinations cartridge and "North" was added on using the Jubilee cartridge. Various elements were cut from the pattern paper and matted to give them more dimension.

Thanks for looking.
