Colour Theory

October 23, 2017

With the release of the new Annual Catalogue in June, I had to change the way I ran my Memory Keeping Classes, so for the past six months we have been using the Colour Theory Memories and More Card Pack as well as the Colourful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  This ladies purchased a small kit which I put together (not including the stamp set and dies) and this month is the last time we will use it.  I decided to have a play with some of the cards I had left and see if I could change them up a bit.  Not that there is anything wrong with the cards as they are but being card makers and scrapbookers we often want to push the design limits.

For the first card I simply added one of the die cut camera images to the bottom of the pre-stamped card.  Not very exciting, but a little stepped up and easy enough for anyone to do, no extra supplies needed, just your Colour Theory Memories and More Card pack.

For the second card, I used two 3″ x 4″ cards.  I laid one horizontally onto the other and trimmed the sides away.  Then I stamped the greeting from the Colourful Seasons stamp set onto Whisper White card and used the Layering Circle Framelits Dies to cut it out.  I attached the greeting to a Crumb Cake scalloped circle cut using the same dies.  The greeting is attached to the centre of the circle on the Colour Theory Memories and More card.  Still pretty simple but you do need a few extra supplies.

The third card uses two 3″ x 4″ cards once more, and,  this time I have cut the greeting from one using the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.  I attached the greeting to a Crumb Cake scalloped square cut using the same dies before attaching to the other Colour Theory Memories and More card.  I also attached one of the die cut “suns” to the top left hand corner.  Once more, simple and the only extra supply is the Layering Squares Framelits Dies.

The fourth card uses one of the 3″ x 4″ Colour Theory Memories and More cards and this time I have die cut two of the chairs from Whisper White card using the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  One of the chairs has the back trimmed away and is turned upside down to create a table.  I also stamped the drink and the lime images from the Colourful Seasons stamp set which I die cut using the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  Cute isn’t it and this card only uses the supplies we had in our kits and the stamp set and matching dies.

The last card is a little stepped up and I did case this one from one I found on Pinterest.  This time I used a 4″ x 6″ card and cut out the greeting using the Layering Square Framelits Dies.   Once I cut out the greeting, I covered the square hole by attaching a 3″ x 4″ Memories and More card over the top.  I attached the greeting to a Pink Pirouette scalloped square cut using the same dies.  The greeting is attached to the centre of the Memories and More Card using dimensionals.  I stamped two flowers in Pink Pirouette and two flowers in Berry Burst using the images from the Colourful Seasons stamp set.  I stamped the centre onto each flower using Early Espresso ink.  I cut out the images using the matching die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I also cut two detailed leaf images from Old Olive card, also using the die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  I attached the leaves to the top left and bottom right corner of the image panel so that the stems are hidden behind the greeting panel and then attached the flowers over the top using dimensionals.

So there you have five stepped up cards using the Colour Theory Memories and More card pack, as well as the co-ordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and the Colourful Seasons stamp set.   I hope these have inspired you to get creative your Memories and More card packs.

Bye for now,

Kris
