Hi friends, it’s Mari Clarke here with another project for SCT Sampler Saturday!  Today I am working with the March 2021 “Shine” SCT Sampler to create an 8.5” x 11” scrapbook layout and two A2-sized cards. 

Here’s a quick look at the SCT Sampler that I created with:

And here’s what I created using these fun, new-to-me products! 

Supplies | March 2021 Sampler; Gina K Inks: Sea Glass; Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink; Cardstock: Bazzill 12×12 Avalanche, Stampin’ Up! Ballet Blue, Concord & 9th Butterscotch, Gina K Sea Glass, Ranger Distress Watercolor paper, Gina K Black Onyx; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Honey Bee Stamps Scallop A2 Card Frame Dies; Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine; Dina Wakley White Gloss Spray; Ranger Clear Embossing Powder; Art Glitter Adhesive

I created the scrapbook layout using the Echo Park Little Dreamer Girl collection pieces from the Sampler. Fussy cutting the rainbow patterned paper and adhering the pieces with foam squares to my white 8” x 10.5” cardstock base allowed me to create a customized, dimensional background for the page. I loved adding the exclusive word “shine” as my title!

To create my first card, I had fun with mixed media, using Gina K Designs Sea Glass ink to add colour to watercolor paper with a wet-on-wet technique. Once dry, I stamped the Concord & 9th Painted Tulip stamp over the watercolor and added clear embossing powder over the black pigment ink for a crisp, raised image. The rest of the card came together with die cutting, a few sequins, and some splatters of ink! I love this pretty, watercoloured card!

For the second card, I used the fun Creative Memories Party Time! collection, and kept this one simple and sweet by using layers and the awesome die cuts and enamel shapes that were included in the Sampler! 

Watch me create all three of these projects in my process video:
