Playing with Roulette and Colors

Hello friends!  Hope your week is getting off to a great start.  I can’t believe that January is over and we’re starting a new winter month already, but at the same time I’m already feeling like this cold weather can move along faster to Spring!

Today I have a couple of creations that I’ve made using those Inky Stamper products and playing a little “Craft Roulette” too!  Chelsea was on Craft Roulette and if you’ve never seen it play out in action, take a look at the You Tube channel to see what it’s about!  She was on episode #146 and here’s my card that I’ve made with her perimeters:

I had so much fun with this and I’ve never made a tag shaped accordion card before, but it was stuck in my head to give it a try and pull out the Inky Stamper Craft Room set to create it.  The “Roulette Wheel” spun on: Double Tags, shelf/shelves, 2 shades of green and something in the background.

The two shades of green were easy with using the Doodlebug Paper Packs and adding in a few other greens to the coloring.  I’ve also made two tags and placed them inside the pocket area in the middle of the accordion design.  I used a stencil in the background of the other two panels and of course I added some crafty goodies to the shelves in Rosie’s craft room!  The accordion card was easier than I had anticipated and just made a mini slim line size design by cutting off the edges to create the tag shape.  The hole and reinforcers were made using punches and dies.  You can see that I’ve colored up, cut out “Rosie” in her craft room where she is cutting her design going through her creative head!

When it’s all folded up and closed, this is what the card looks like.  I could always add a sentiment on the back, but I thought this would be fun to send to a fellow crafter for sure!  I just wish my shelves looked this organized!  And I always try to use another thing from my stash as I pulled out lots of twine that gets thrown in a bin, so it was nice to use for the tops of each tag area. (Maybe on the back of the card, the crafter can add items to use up on their next project and display it! LOL)

And here’s another card that I’ve done for the January challenge on the Inky Stamper Inkspiration FB Group which was to use: Black, white plus one other color:

I decided to pull out the Grasshopper set and make everything in the background black and white, but just color the grasshopper in green.  All of the elements including the sentiment came from the same stamp set.  I splattered some black paint over the background and the images were colored with some cool gray Copic markers.  I white heat embossed the sentiment over black and cut it out with a banner die.

Behind the white panel, I took a piece of the black floral paper from the Doodlebug Floral & Graph Paper Pad and attached that to a white top folding A2 card base.  It was a fun and easy card to put together!

Thanks so much for “hopping” over here today!  Hope you’ve been inspired or smiled!😊

  5. As always an absolutely brilliant pair of cards,the papers and images in the accordion tag are adorable and the grasshopper and sentiment made me smile. Take care Meg x


  6. Both of these are delightful, Vicki, but I absolutely adore the grasshopper! Great use of the color themes and the tri-folded tag is a great design. 😀 Don’t let winter get you down. Just remember that after spring makes it’s brief visit, we get the heat and humidity of a long summer! lol


  7. Hi Vicki, I both smiling and inspired….while I love the grasshopper card, I checked the Roulette and plan to watch this Friday night if possible. I think you did a fabulous job with the project with the craft room theme (which is perfecty. I would love to see you on that show! You would be great! Smiles, Kathy


  8. I LOVE the accordion card and just may have to try that sometime. Sure makes a cute card! That grasshopper is popping off the page…….WOW! FUN cards and both are fabulous!


  9. Fabulous tag card, haven’t made one in years. Making Valentines right now, maybe will do one.
    The grasshopper is fun to and the green really pops on the black and white. Nicely done as always, Vicki.

  10. Rosie really does have the coolest craft room ever! And the tags in the middle of the tags are like a second little gift within the card.
    How do you get such perfect paint splatters?! You gave me tips before but mine have never turned out like yours. The grasshopper design and background are so cute.


  11. Fabby looking creation with lots of charming details. It’s fantastic! Thanks for playing along with us over at PFM.

  13. I’ve never heard of an accordion card as a label medley before. And she looks really great. Beautiful coloring of the cards. But the second grasshopper card is brilliantly designed. I love the monochrome background, the green grasshopper looks stunning on it. I love this card!


  14. What fabulous makes! Loving the accordion design and all the detail that you added and the grasshopper is so fun too – perfect 😊. Many apologies for not visiting recently, had lots of family stuff to sort out. I hope you are keeping well and sending you happy wishes! Hugs, Jo x
