Paint Your World – Paintbrush Cards for Art Lovers with Annie Williams

Hi there, this is Annie Williams and I’m thrilled to be back on the blog today to share a couple of projects using the new Paint Your World Collection by Vicky Papaioannou.  The fun paintbrush-themed designs and beautiful nature-inspired extras in this collection inspired me to create three colorful cards for the art lovers in my life.

Oversized Paintbrush Card

The oversized brush in the Painted Blooms Die Set was the perfect base for me to try out a ton of the different accessories in the collection. Here I added layers of flowers and even a butterfly to this pretty slimline card perfect for sending a springtime hello.

Oversized Painter’s Palette

The oversized palette in the Painter’s Palette Die Set is perfect for big, bold cards or even shaped cards.  Here I’ve used a rainbow of color along with the fun art supplies in this set to create a bright 5” x 7” card for a friend.

  • Die-cut kraft cardstock using the palette die and white cardstock using the paint blob and paint tube dies from the Painter’s Palette Die Set.
  • Blend a rainbow of colors onto the paint blobs and paint tube pieces with Distress Ink and a sponge dauber.
  • Assemble the palette and paint tube with liquid glue (I also added a droplet to the tube using one of the dies from the Artful Brush Die Set).
  • Die-cut Onyx, Mirror Gold, and white cardstock using the paintbrush die from the Painter’s Palette Die Set. Blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the bristles and assemble the brush with liquid glue.

  • Blend Peacock Feathers Distress Ink around the edges with a blending brush.
  • Mat it with Onyx Cardstock and adhere it to a top-folding A7-sized white card base.
