Graffiti Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Graffiti Blog Hop! So glad you stopped in. If this is your first stop, you might want to go back to Club Scrap Creates and start at the beginning so that you don't miss any of the wonderful projects.

This month I was in a bit of a bind. I needed to cancel my Club Scrap paper kit due to two kids going off to college in the near future. I kept my digital membership however. So, my challenge was to not only make something with the digital kit, and since my color printer isn't printing correctly I could only print in black & white on our laser printer.

I finally decided to make some cards. I had picked up the neon ink pads that Club Scrap is now selling in their store and thought I could make some art backgrounds. I also used some metallic reinkers for three of the cards.

The first 3 cards I used metallic reinkers for the background. I dabbed them on glossy paper using a baby wipe. After it dried I printed the designs onto the paper. On this first card I used a red Copic pen to color in the Love design and the heart brad at the bottom. Paper used for the  cards are from kits that are no longer available. I used paper from Graitude (2009), Salsa (2003), Time & Space (2003) & Vogue (2010).

The next four cards I inked up my embossing folders with the neon ink and then ran the folder through my Cuttlebug. The sentiments were printed on white glossy paper that I had swiped the neon ink pads across first.

These cards all use papers from old kits that are no longer available. I used paper from Salsa (2003), Mosaic Twist (2005), Time & Space (2003) & Vogue (2010).

Thanks for looking! Your next stop on the way is Shona's blog!
