Details, details, details ...



What a GREAT BlogHop we had with Adornit !! Aren't their products amazing?? They are at CHA in Anaheim,CA right now showing off all of their goodies !! Congrats to Carla Hundley for her winning comment on my post during the Hop--she will be receiving some fun Adornit products to play with !!  This post is a bit more detailed regarding the supplies I used....

Adornit has a fantastic variety of gorgeous fabric available and I used 2 of them to mat my first card, Burnish Creme  was used for the outer mat and Burlap Beige for the inner mat. Burlap Beige has a subtle design of cursive writing & postal marks. I absolutely loved it and will definitely be using a larger piece next time.. I used a Stampin' Up sentiment and some clearance flowers bought many years ago, along with some Basic Grey fabric tape to finish it off. I used Tombow AQUA Mono Liquid Glue to adhere some of each fabric to Kraft cardstock. I then die cut the mats with my Cuttlebug and adhered the mats to the card again with my Tombow AQUA.. The Kraft cardstock made working with fabric a whole lot easier for me.



This next card was SO much fun to make !! I used Adornit's line of Art Play Paintables by Lindsay Ostrom. The image I used is from the "Be Awesome" set. It is on a 12 x 12 sheet of amazing watercolor paper along with 11 other designs. I used Distress markers, Stampin' Up markers, atyou Spica Glitter pens and Wink of Stella to color in this design. A bit of Adornit's Pink Pixie Dots double-sided paper was perfect to complete the banner . A bit of Dollar Tree glitter washi was a cute touch to the folded edge of my card. I absolutely LOVE this sentiment. It reminds me of friends who are going through very rough times  and still find time to celebrate the little things in life.. "Be Brave and just keep dancing" ~~ great advice for all of us !!

 CHA, 


My last project is the one I am proudest of.. I used Adornit's  Choose Happy Word Plaque. I'll admit to being a bit overwhelmed when starting on this one . But when I looked at it as just a card on a larger scale, I was immediately relaxed. Another amazing Lindsay Ostrom design from the Life's Journey Art Play Paintable was my focal point. I colored it with Koi Watercolors, Distress Markers, Wink of Stella and Stampin' Up markers & Dazzling Details. I paper-punched several clouds and popped them up with dimensionals. I used Tombow AQUA Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the wooden letters to more Pink Pixie Dots paper (also used as my background on the wooden plaque and adhered with Mod Podge). I completed it with a rainbow of colorful rhinestones in the center of  most of the circles. Thanks to my guy, Brian who wrote a beautiful song- "Home on the Hill". It was my inspiration for this project. This wooden plaque of mine is on display at the CHA 2015 Mega Show in the Adornit booth. How cool is that !! I am beyond thrilled.



I hope you will check out Adornit's website and become inspired. Thank you for visiting Meticulosity.. I will be posting a Year in Review here soon....I appreciate all of your support !!
