If you want to any sort of guideline, here's what I did- I cut a standard 5.5x8.5 card base from Melon Mambo. Next I chopped off .75 from the edge. I trimmed .25 off of that piece and set it aside. Next I attached a white layer (5.5x 3.5) to my cropped card base. I used that .25 piece of Melon and attached that on there.
Finally I stamped my sentiment and assembled my flowers. I placed one of the small yellow flowers on the card base layer to use it to keep the card shut.
Happy Friday! I have a sketch ready to go! Can't believe it's almost been 300 of these!
When I designed the sketch, I definitely had the intention to use my various speech bubble dies that I've acquired lately. But then... new Stampin' Up catalog order came, so I figured I'd play with that instead! Love this new floral set! And it's a photopolymer set too with matching dies!!!
Stamps: Flower Patch
Ink: Tangelo Twist, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Natasha and I did the online watercolour for card makers class a couple weeks back…I'm finally finding some time to make good use of the awesome techniques that we learned!!
this card involves a couple techniques in it! First I heat embossed the roses to get my background pattern then I rubbed my distress pads on my craft matt and sprayed it with water and laid the water colour paper in it…After the card was dried I ironed off the embossed areas so I was able to stamp the sentiment! Die cut some pretty butterflies added the ribbon and of course sequins and voila! Here you have it!!
Hope you enjoy!
Edited to add-For those interested, Jennifer McGuire has a nice video featuring this technique here. The background technique that Chera used is different than the video, but the video shows how to use an iron to remove the heated embossing powder.
I have returned! (I didn't actually go anywhere, just needed some time to focus on wedding things). It all went incredibly well! The weather was perfect and everyone had a super fun time!
Anyway... here is this week's sketch!
Here's my take on it. After over two weeks of not creating anything, I was in the mood for making something a bit messy. I created a stencil using the circle coverplate from PTI and then sprayed over it with a gold shimmer spray. That just wasn't enough for me, so I added some brown paint splatters.
I finished that off with a layered butterfly and some lace and ribbon!
The sketches are here to serve as a starting point for your card creations. There are no winners chosen. This site and the sketches are just for fun. The link lists are kept active for two weeks (in general they start on a Friday, and close 2 weeks later on a Friday).
