Layered Card

Here is another card that we made at my first class. If you are interested in coming along to any of my future classes take a look on the classes tab for more details.

To make this card we started with just the white layers which we secured in place with the 2-way glue pen. When left to dry before putting together this gives a temporary adhesive. The images were then stamped doing the background last with masks on the items you want to be in the foreground and then stamping the background stamp, in this case the steam from the scentsational seasons set, all over. When the masks are removed it gives the illusion that the background is behind. Masks are made by stamping the image onto a post it note and then carefullly cutting around and sticking onto the image. Once the desired effect is achieved the layers are seperated and then put back together with the mats in place.

Card stock is Crumb Cake and Whisper White

Stamp set is Scentsational Seasons

Ink Colours are Garden Green, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.

Gift Box

The structure of the box is made by cutting two pieces of card, in this case Very Vanilla and cutting the base a fraction smaller than the top 1/16th of an inch and then scoring both on all 4 sides for the depth of the box.

Adding a top note to the lid and base gives it a nice touch. The layered effect is created by trimming the top layer along the perforated line.

Card Stock is Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip.
Stamp Set is Scentsational Season
Dies are Top Note and Scentsational Season
Inks are Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard.
Ribbon is Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Dots.

Get well soon

I thought I would share with you a swap that I made for our latest training event. Training is one of my favourite parts of being a demonstrator as I always come away with lots of inspiration and also new samples to show off.

Stamp set is Kidoodles
Card stock is Bashful Blue, Pink Pirouette, crumb cake and watercolour
ink/markers are Crumb cake, basic grey, bashful blue, pink pirrouette and Black Stazon.
embossing folders are Square lattice and perfect polka dots
punch is corner rounder.

The image is stamped with black stazon onto the watercolour card as this gives a waterproof outline. The rhino was then coloured using the blender pen to get the varied shades of colour to give him some definition.
