Lone Wolf Designs Design Team Showcase: Canvas Corp Canvas Minis

Welcome back for my first LWD Design Team Showcase of 2014. Make sure you check out the The Lone Wolf Designs LLC blog every week as we have added a new weekly treat: Tool Review Tuesday. For my product review this week I have chosen these cute round canvas minis and made 2 cards. The circles are approximately 3" in diameter, so even though they are "mini," they are still a nice size to work with. 

Square card:

DCWV 5.5” square embossed hearts
Distress Ink: Victorian Velvet
Momenta metal stickers (Thanks, Tami!)

I started by inking the embossed hearts and the edges of the card with Victorian Velvet. I also inked the cardboard and the canvas circle.  The flowers were on a tag that I received in a swap. I carefully took them off and then glued them to the canvas. I received a whole jar of those heart embellishments about a year ago from my friend Katie. When I first got them I was SURE I would NEVER use them, but I have actually used half the jar! They are great little embellishments. Oh, and the heart stick pin (my last one!) and metal sticker came from fellow DT member Tami. I used Beacon 3-in-1 to adhere everything to the card. I find that it works the best when attaching something other than paper.

5x7 card:

Paper: BasicGrey Fiction (5 pcs)
Flowers: Michael’s Dollar Bin
Momenta metal sticker (Thanks, Tami!)

This 5"x7" card is based on OWH Sketch 206. I had to adjust the measurements a bit since OWH cards are A2 sized and my card is 5"x7".

The canvas minis come as 2 layers that are sewn together. For this card, I took the circles apart. Now I have twice as many! After cutting my paper to size I used the Tonic Paper Distresser to distress the edges. Note to self: Next time think TWICE about distressing paper…cardstock is SO much easier! I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo and then assembled the layers using my ATG. Before inking the edges of the canvas I used my fingernails to unravel the edges a bit. I also inked the paper flowers. I used Beacon 3-in-1 to adhere the canvas and the flowers to the front of the card. The metal embellishment has foam tape on the back, but I find the adhesive on those to be less than satisfactory. I ran a line of Beacon across the bottom of the foam tape, too.

  1. I think those canvas minis make the perfect focal point on your cards! Love the colors you chose, too. My favorite part is the heart pin though. :-)

    1. I told Tami that was my last one...I'm hoping she takes the hint! LOL

  2. So pretty and a great way to add texture to your cards!!

  3. Great job DeAnna! Love the way you used the canvas circles! <3
