Urban Market Cards with Tessa Wise

Hello there!  I have two cards to share today using the beautiful Urban Market collection.  The patterned papers were really inspiring me this week:

I paired the Urban Market patterned papers with the chipboard stickers, decorative tapes, and sequins for these cards.  I love playing with all the bits and pieces!

The blue tiled patterned paper (dots) is so pretty!  I had to use it on a card:

I started with a kraft card base and added a panel of the blue patterned paper (dots) to the center, leaving 1/4" around the sides and top. Next, I diecut a panel of the chevron glittered paper (zig) so it had a rounded edge for my focal panel.  I decorated it with a couple of the decorative tapes, some faux stitching, and a bit of linen thread.  I added the fleur de lis chipboard piece over the top of it all.  I added my sentiment on vellum so that you could see all the good stuff going on underneath.  I embellished it all with those beautiful silver sequins and added the rounded panel to my card using the foam squares found in the Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit by Xyron.  The dimension is perfect!

For my next card, I chose a pretty journaling card from the cards patterned paper as my focal point:

I started with another kraft colored card base.  I added the larger dots patterned paper (zig) to the center of my card front.   I cut out the journaling card with stripes and damask from the cards paper and stamped my sentiment on it.  I embellished with a bit of faux stitching, some fun decorative tape and a bit of linen thread.  I added a couple of staples to hold it in place using my pink Teresa Collins stapler from Xyron.  Over the top of the flat items, I added a couple of smaller chipboard pieces and finished off the look with those awesome woodgrain and striped sequins:

I used the foam adhesive squares again to add the panel to my card front, adding just a strip of the blue floral print (floral) patterned paper peeking out from the bottom edge.

Each time I pull out the Urban Market collection I love it more and more!  I have been using the decorative tapes, the sequins, and the glitter paper on all of my cards- they are my favorites right now!

Hope you have a great day!
