Echo Park Little man 5 and 6…

IMG_7756 (Medium)Here are my last two creations with Eco Park Little man papers. I only bought a few sheets of this range, but made a nice amount of cards from it, only using the papers and some googly eyes for embellishment. All the cardstock matting is stampin up card, and the stamp set used here for the sentiment is stampin up itty bitty banners.i love papers like this where you can make a whole card for minimum use of products!We have a long weekend here this weekend, with a public holiday on monday,so I am sure I will fit in some time in the craft room, the weather although still humid is cooler too, so all is looking up!Ti tomorrow….

Echo park Little man

IMG_7751 (Medium)IMG_7752 (Medium)Every now and again I buy just a couple of sheets of paper from a range, and this one from Echo Park called little man was one of those times. I love doing cards like this because they are quick, easy, and need no other embellishment other than the paper. I used cardstock from Stampin Up, added googly eyes,and just did some layering. Stopped by paper flourish on my way home from work, and picked up the new graphic 45 papers, so looking forward to sitting down tonight and having a good look at them! til tomorrow…..

Echo Park teenagers number 5

IMG_1774 (Medium)Todays card made with echo park teenagers paper collection is based on the game tetris..I just cut out the squares from one of the papers, and stuck them onto the card front. A bit of corner rounding and some layering of paper and cardstock and this was a really quick and easy card to make! I have spent most of the day in the craft room using up some old papers, and listening to ABC radio where there has been constant updates on the bushfires that are burning out of control on the very outskirts of our beautiful town. Many of my friends and a couple of relatives have had to evacuate from their homes, and it has been a worrying day for all of us here in Adelaide.The weather til now has been extremely hot, although as I type the wind is raging, temperature has dropped a little and I hear thunder in the distance. Let’s hope there is a lot of rain with that thunder! Til tomorrow…

Echo Park Teenagers 3 and 4

IMG_1772 (Medium)IMG_1773 (Medium)Two cards today, because I don’t think I will get back here tomorrow .. I have a really long day at work getting ready for the back to school sale..always something!… Todays two cards are still made using Echo park teenagers paper collection. as I mentioned before, I only bought a couple of sheets of this collection,but if I see it again I will be buying more as it is so easy to make those difficult teen boy cards with this paper. The bottom card has a bit of fussy cutting, and I layered everything with Stampin up cardstock – tangerine tango and Mossy meadow which matches in perfectly with the colours. For now though, it’s back to the craft room where the decluttering has commenced, although I must admit I get very easily distracted so it could be quite a long job and you may be seeing some cards made with older paper collections in the near future! til tomorrow ….

Echo Park teenagers number 1

IMG_1770 (Medium)Still on  teen boy type cards, but a different paper company – Echo Park teenagers. I only bought 3 sheets of this paper, but managed to make quite a few cards with them.For this one I used the sheet that had quite a few different images on it, and also fussy cut the banners from another square and added them underneath. Found a good use for a lovely big yellow button, and mounted it all on a card base made with some stampin up cardstock!Til tomorrow……

Princess cards – Echo Park patterned paper

IMG_8471 (Medium)IMG_8470 (Medium)In between christmas cards i made some little girl cards last week with  a couple of sheets of paper by Echo Park called Princess. I fussy cut the images from one sheet of paper, and made use of the identity strip at the bottom of the sheet by making the princess banner on the top card and using the crown printed one on the bottom card.I added plenty of bling and glitter, and ribbon to finish both cards. well the weekend has flown – I am certainly missing having Mondays off!Til tomorrow….
