Hey Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca here! If you like washi tape then you will LOVE Queen and Co. Washi Tapes. They seem thicker than most washi, but act the same way in that you can tear them, cut them, die cut them and more!
For this card, I used the Candles Foam Front Coordinating Die to cut out candles and flames. I did this by laying strips of wash on cardstock and then running it through my die cut machine. I also created the diagonal patterned paper matte by laying down washi strips next to each other.
For the second card, I took advantage of the fact that you can tear washi. I laid a rainbow of strips of torn edge washi on my card panel. Next, I created a shaped shaker using the Heart Throb kit heart foam shape and die. I covered some cardstock with purple washi and ran it through my die cut machine to use as the base and frame for the shaker.
Hi Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca Keppel here with a few new Foam Front Shaker Cards featuring the new Glitter Washi.
For my first card, I covered a piece of cardstock with 2 types of Glitter Washi. I made sure that the cardstock was a little larger than 4.25 x 5.5 so that I could use the coordinating Sunburst die to cut the Glitter Washi covered cardstock. I think the metallic colors could make a good masculine card!
I added some black and white twine on the sentiment strip and tied it with a knot rather than a bow to further the masculine look.
For my final card, I changed it up and used the Glitter Washi behind the Foam Front. Once again, I covered cardstock with Glitter Washi and then used the Oval Foam Front on top.
The polka dot Glitter Washi behind the Oval Foam Front reminded me of an Easter egg so I went with an easter theme.
I love using the Glitter on cards! I was surprised that even with all the glittery shine, the Washi still tears easily and it die cut easily too! I do recommend using a Precision Plate for die cutting to ensure you get a nice clean cut.
Hi everyone! Kim Watson here with some of my latest projects to share that focus on the lush Queen & Co glitter washi tapes & regular wash tapes. Let me walk you through my processes.
Not having any 12 x 12 paper, I created my own using x4 6x6 sheets from the NEW Delightful dots & Stripes paper pads. The color blocked effect is so visually striking and the perfect canvas for my page.
Using black & white bakers twine, I adhered a circle shape onto the background page to ground the design. It is from this circle that everything else radiates. Clusters of flowers made up of Iridescent flowers, Pom flowers & die cut flowers using the Flowers shaker kit. Leaves made from collaged washi tape then die cut, Buttons, Pinwheels & Lollies. The result is a pretty & highly dimensional floral bouquet.
Two strips of washi tape on the top right corner, helps with visual balance, and again a sweet, floral cluster adds tons of interest. To fancy up the washi circle, I added a few little items from our new Bling collection: Lollies, Iridescent pearls, Pinwheels, Petite Posies & Rivets. This helps the eye travel around the circle to different parts of the page. ________________________________________
Beginning with the Candle Shaker card kit, I filled the different candles with Metallic Pearlies, then sealed the shakers with Metallic washi tape, even the flames got the same treatment. The black card front creates fabulous drama, offsetting the gorgeous & sophisticated color palette of Black, Magenta, Silver & Gold. Iridescent flowers, Pom flowers, Lollies, Petite Posies & Wallflowers add glam & twinkle. _______________________________________
This card is a real event...fitting for a 21st birthday, being a big milestone birthday. I started with the white card base, adding a black panel & magenta Delightful dot patterned paper panel. I then created the 3 tiered cake accent. Remember by collaging strips of washi tape onto a piece of cardstock, you make it more manageable when creating an accent like this one. Once layered & adhered together, I made a cute little bow tie from black & white dotted washi tape. Pinwheels add the necessary bling to the top tier.
Using jewellers wire, I made 4 wobblers to 'jump out' of the cake...an Iridescent flower, punched stars glammed up with Sequins & Pearlies and a gold glitter number 21 really make a 'wow!' statement. Bunched up tissue paper into the top of the cake was the perfect way to hide any workings within the cake :)
I LOVED this months assignments, & I hope you do too? Sigh...so many Queen & Co pretties and only so many hours in a day to craft! Aren't you just loving the new lines? Well if you are & want to purchase some for yourself, the items I used are listed & linked below. _________________________________________
Hi everyone! Stacy Cohen here with some ‘fun-with-foam’ projects to share. I love that Queen & Co’s products are versatile enough to be used on a variety of crafty projects!
I used products from the new Butterflies Shaker Kit (which includes both foam shaker shapes and coordinating dies) to create a layout and a card. I’m quite enamored with colorful rainbow pages, so when I saw the new Delightful Dots and Simple Stripes Mat Stacks I got a little giddy. For the layout I cut strips of the rainbow colored papers and used a scalloped edger punch along the edge of each. I then adhered the strips side-by-side to a piece of cardstock, using 3D foam adhesive to pop up the scallops. I cut a curve along the strips and separated the two pieces, then adhered them to a 12” x 12” sheet of cardstock leaving about a half inch space between the two sections. I filled the space with coordinating colors of Queen & Co. bling and toppings.
I filled a butterfly shaker with some of the fabulous new toppings. I also added a few die-cut butterflies as page accents.
Here’s the card I made with the butterfly shaker kit. I used strips of the same fabulous rainbow papers.
Normally I like to leave room in the shakers so that the toppings will actually shake and move around. But this time I decided to fill the butterfly shaker to capacity so that the toppings would stay put. I layered the colors of the toppings within each butterfly so that they coordinate with the rainbow paper strips behind them.
Next up I have a layout and a card I made with the Birthday Shaker Kit. I went with a grid design for the layout, but I decided to change it up a bit and put the grid at an angle.
I used the party hat and cake slice shakers and filled them up with festive toppings. For the candles, I used the foam inserts from the candle shaker pieces (you’ll see I used the candle shakers themselves for the card at the end of this post).
Good Morning! Mary-Ann Maldonado here today to share two fun Foam Front Layouts with you. For my first layout, I used the Waves Foam Front Shaker Set. Each set of Foam in the Queen Shop, can be paired with an appropriate die. This helps cover the foam front perfectly with fun papers. I used watercolor paper for this layout. I started by dropping paint droplets from high above to get the splatter of water look. Be careful or your clothes will be covered! I know! I also used watercolor for the front of the foam die. I dropped paint on a silicone mat and smeared my paper through it for mixed colors and also for the left over waves too. Then I carefully dropped splatters on those as well. Each layer of my shaker was filled with different toppings to create an ombre effect. Closer to the surface of the ocean is lighter, right?
I then randomly placed Iridescent Pearls, Opals, Pinwheels and Rivets.
As you can see, the Foam Front Sets can be used with any of your favorite papers, embellishments and topics out there! Have fun and go crazy!
For my second layout, I wanted to show you how fun the Foam Fronts are with lots of patterned papers. That they can really be used with just about anything you want.
I topped the Solo Heart Foam Front with a delicate patterned paper and filled it with Pearlies, Fun Fimos, Pops and even a couple Lollies. I used the heart die from the Heart Throb kit to cut a black out line of the heart to help it stand out a bit more.
Leaving the patterned paper behind the shaker filled with various Toppings is kinda fun!
This first card, I kept super clean and simple. I added the foam front to the card base, added in some clear diamonds from the Diamonds Primary Toppings. I added 2 hearts that I cut from the Hearts Foam Front Die after adding in a little ink blending. I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps, Handmade From Me, stamp set.
This second card I did a little blending with blue ink on the Balloon Die cut front and the balloons themselves. The toppings inside the balloons are called Pops. I added everything to the card front and the topped it off with more heart die cuts and a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Easter Greetings.
This last card was made using the Hearts Foam Front kit. I did some ink blending on the card front die cut. I filled each heart on the shaker card with sliver pearls from the Neutral Pearlies toppings set. I added the "thanks" sentiment using a Simon Says Thanks Die.
If you haven't had a chance to try one of these amazing Foam Front Shaker cards, go grab one. They are so much fun!
Hi friends! Laurie Schmidlin here with you today. I've got four Spring filled shaker cards to share with you! I live in a colder climate and every year at this time I find myself longing for the warmer temperatures, pretty colors, and new growth that Spring brings. Even though I have a bit longer to wait for Spring to arrive outside, inside my studio I have surrounded myself with all the Spring things! :-)
My first card features the Rainbow Foam Front and coordinating Rainbow Foam Front Die. I filled the rainbow and cloud with some Tiny Bubbles and Pops Toppings. After assembling the shaker I die cut the top layer using the Rainbow Foam Front Die. (Before die cutting this, I had sponged and blended three ink colors on it and then splattered water and white paint on it.) I embellished with some Purple Sparkle String, a White Pom Pom flower and a Purple button on the butterfly.
This card features the Circle Foam Front and Circle Foam Front Die. I think one of my favorite things about the dies is that they not only coordinate perfectly with the Foam Fronts but can be used on their own regardless if you are creating a shaker card or not! This particular design would work well as a non-shaker card just as easily. I adhered the circle foam front to a white card base. I added my sentiments and then filled it some Fimo Fun Toppings and clear Pastel Diamond Toppings. I sealed the top with the included clear acetate and then die cut a light gray frame using the Circle Foam Front Die (I used the outside frame part and discarded the circle). I arranged and glued down many stamped and die cut flowers around the circle opening and then added some Iridescent Pearls to the flower centers.
This next card features the Window Foam Front and Window Foam Front Die. I had a lot of fun creating this one! I started by die cutting the Window Foam Front die using white cardstock. I took the four inner rectangles and sponged them with four different colors of ink and then stamping them with some flowers. I added the Window Foam Front to a white card base and then adhered the sponged rectangles. I filled each rectangle with the matching color Donuts and Tiny Bubbles Toppings. I framed the top by die cutting the Window Foam Front die using black cardstock. I then added some stamped and die cut flowers and sentiment. For embellishment, I created colorful flowers using Lollies as the center and coordinating Twinkle Drops for the petals.
For my last card, I created one more Rainbow Foam From card. Nothing says Spring to me like a pretty rainbow! :-) To create this card I started by adhering the Rainbow Foam Front to a white card base. Before adding any toppings, I filled each rainbow layer with colored patterned paper. I did this by using the Rainbow Foam Front Die to die cut each part from a different piece of patterned paper. I then filled the rainbow and clouds with Pops Toppings. For the top layer, I die cut the Rainbow Foam Front Die using patterned paper. I added a stamped sentiment, a small scalloped paper layer and glitter at the bottom, a die cut sun and button, and some twine.
Hi Queen and Co. fans! Rebecca Keppel here with 4 new Foam Front cards! For this first card, I used the Sunburst Foam Front Kit and Die, but I also borrowed the Spring Shape Shakers Cloud die to add the sentiment.
I used some Iridescent Dots around the sun shape to add extra dimension.
For the third card, I used the Chevron Foam Front and grabbed the matching Die to die cut some gold foil cardstock in the chevron pattern.
I was really excited to try out the Neutral Pearlies Toppings and thought they would show up nicely on a black background. The metallics add a very elegant touch and would be perfect for wedding or engagement cards!
Hi everyone! Jen Chapin here today, and I am sharing a couple of scrapbook layouts with you using the Foam Fronts shakers. The first layout uses the Chevron Foam Front and was rainbow inspired. I started out by adding toppings in rainbow order to the spaces in the chevron, then covering with a clear front. On the background of the layout, I used watercolors to create a rainbow effect that sits behind the Foam Front.
After adhering the foam to the layout, I added my photo and title. I decided to go with a black and white photo to make the bright colors stand out. I added a few embellishments and some journaling, and the layout was complete!
When creating layouts with a rainbow theme, it's often best to stick with black and white photos and a neutral title to avoid competing with the bright colors.
For the second layout, I created a page using the Speech Bubble Foam Front about my son. This layout is 12x12 and uses a photo that's a bit smaller than 4x6.
I started out creating the title for this page using toppings and a Speech Bubble Foam Front. I added the "boys rule" title over that, then adhered to the layout. Next I placed my photo and patterned papers.
To create repetition, I added some more foam speech bubbles to the page, covered with patterned paper. I embellished and added journaling, completing the page.
I hope you will try Foam Fronts soon on your scrapbooking pages! They aren't just for cards and create such a great dimensional look. Thanks for stopping by today!
