Deerest Friends Perfect Tears Card by Kari // Right at Home and Perfect Paper Crafting Collaboration

Hello there crafty friends!  Kari here today to showcase the Perfect Tears Tools. Throughout the next week or so the Right at Home Design Team will be sharing special posts in collaboration with Perfect Paper Crafting.

The set I'll be showcasing is the Perfect Tearing Rulers. It's a set of three rulers with a different tearing style on each edge. The set includes a little water marker that helps with moistening your paper to make tearing easier.

For my card, I used the adorable stamp set Deerest Friends, and created a focal point by die cutting a label from kraft card stock, and then stamping the cute owl and the sentiment "Friends Till The End" in VersaMark ink, and then covering that with my gold embossing powder, and using my heat tool to set.  I love the gold embossed look on kraft - almost a tone on tone look, but with flare ;)

To create my background, I used a piece of watercolor card stock, and created an ink blended look using my Distress Inks, and then sprayed some water to take advantage of those wonderful properties of this fun ink, and allowed it to wick away some of that color, and I used a paper towel to soak up the water.  It leaves behind a fun distressed and bleached look!

To add another fun element, I used the Perfect Tears tools, and chose two of the tear designs, and took some of my favorite fall patterned papers, and created a fun distressed edge!  These tools come with a refillable water pen to make the process so easy!!  I adhered my two edged papers onto my water color panel, and then used the largest Right At Home Stamps frame die that is included in the Find the Beauty coordinating die set, and created that lovely stitched edge all around my panel.

I added some foam tape to my label to pop it up off of my main panel, and added some twine, and then adhered my panel to a 4.25 x 5.5 wood grain card base. It was a lot of fun using these fun tools, and creating a different element to add to my card design!!  

Have a wonderful crafty day!

Season of Blessings Card by Kari // Paper-Piecing Cute Critters

Hey everyone! Kari here bringing you another fall themed card featuring some of the newest release!  For my first post on the blog, I wanted to feature some of the cute critters in the latest release from two stamp sets, Deerest Friends and Friendly Fox.  I think these two images go so well together, and I wanted to do something a little different with them - I wanted to paper piece them!!  Instead of coloring them in with Copics or another coloring method, I wanted to give them some fun patterns by paper piecing them.

It has been a while since I have done this technique, but I thought this adorable deer and cute fox called for it.  I stamped both of my images onto a piece of cream colored card stock, and then I took some fall themed pattern papers that I felt would fit these critters the best, and stamped them again onto the pattern papers, and I fussy cut the images out.  For the fox, I cut out his tail and his tummy so I could keep those part of the images bright once I applied them to my card stock.  For the deer I did the same for the tail, and well as his face, and colored in the tail and his spots white with a white gel pen, and I colored his face in with a Copic marker.

For the rest of my 5x5 inch square card, I created panel from cream color card stock, and die cut several times some border dies to give it some interest with the different stitched elements.  I also die cut another piece of fall themed pattern paper using a stitched square die, and stamped and embossed my sentiment from Deerest Friends in gold embossing powder.

To finish, I added some fun leaf wood veneer pieces, added some foam adhesive to my critters and added them to my card, and viola!  I love the color scheme and all the elements that came together for the card using these adorable critters as the focal point! 

Thanks for stopping by today!!  Don't forget to head over the the RAH shop and check out the latest release!  It's a good one!
