Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood Shine card

Hi, design elf Katrina here to show you my latest creation. A card using the Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood papers and stamp set.
There are so many things you can do with this beautiful paper pad. I used the 8x8 paper pad, they reduce the whole paper down so you have a smaller sized image, perfect for this 6x6 card blank.
 
I used one of the papers for the blue background that I mounted onto some black card. I then cut the stars out from one of the other papers and collaged them onto the background.
 
Using a black Steblo pencil I drew around the stars to darken the edges.
 
The two postcards are from the ephemera pack. Lots of beautiful cards that have a different design on each side so lots to choose from.
 
Using the Stamp set 2 I stamped some of the images onto Kraft card and cut them out. Then added them to my card as you can see.
 
I completed the card by cutting a part of one of the borders from the border paper and threading it through a diamante ribbon slide.

Thank you for dropping by, I thought this would make a lovely card for someone who has passed their exams perhaps.
 
Please drop by again soon as I will be back again very soon with another project.
 
Till then, love Katrina

Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood little house

Hello, design elf Katrina here to welcome you once again to the Fruit Pixie blog.    Today I have a project to share with you using the Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood papers and stamps. 
My dear hubby bought me the Tim Holtz little house die for my birthday and I thought I would try it out using these wonderful papers and stamps from Graphic 45.
 
I cut the base out of some thick chipboard and then cut the Graphic 45 paper again using the same die so the pieces would fit perfectly. I used the 8x8 paper pad for this as the scale of the images was better for a smaller project. 
 
 I cut the die cut parts of the Graphic 45 paper apart as I find you get a better finish to your finished project if you don't go around corners with paper.
 
I painted all of the sides using the Cosmic Shimmer black paint.
 
I stamped some of the stamp images in black ink onto kraft card and cut them out. I then used them as collage pieces along with a paper stamp from the stamp border paper.
I used more of the borders to decorate the roof and the sides.
 
To finish it off I drew around the collage images with a chalk pencil.
 
I really enjoyed making this little house, I think I will be using this die a lot.
 
I hope you liked my project and it has given you some ideas of your own.
