Here is a fun quick and simple card I made this afternoon, using come Faber-Castell Gelato’s and some Pink Paisley Die cuts and vellum.
A close up of the center of the card, I love this little trick, left over die cuts that are white on the back, you love the shape but not the pattern anymore, flip them over, use the white side, and love them again!
Yay for more birthday cards, its that time of year that I am doing trade shows and these are a big seller for me
I die cut the largest feather out of the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Feathers in craft foam, I then took some Gelatos and mixed a small amount of them in a blue and a pink into some Golden light molding paste. I think adhered my craft foam stamp onto a block using temporary adhesive (this stamp is reusable as long as you clean it). I coated my “stamp” using a pallet knife with my tinted molding paste and stamped the feather, then dried it and stamped the second flower.
Here we go again another month is done and here are my 3 favourite products for this month
Indigoblu Mega Flakes:
This stuff is seriously lovely, I know you haven’t seen any project with it…. YET! Be on the lookout next month as I have been making some fun things with it. You can start with the Kit in a Box which comes with everything you need to get started, then there are many other colours of the Mega Flakes, I personally love the Lancashire Rose Flakes, and the next ones I will be picking up are the ones pictures above, Royal Peacock.
Stencils have been really popular in the cardmaking world lately and here is one of my favourites, this is a fun stencil from Tim Holtz, when you blend different colours together through it its just a truely lovely look.
These are so fun! They come in a wide variety of colours, are water soluble and just blend lovely with only your finger! I made a little Butterfly Card using them earlier this month and must play with them some more.
One of these days I will have a flop for you all, something new I tried this month that I just really didn’t like, but this month that did not happen. Which is actually a good thing I didn’t waste anything money
So, as lots of you know I have been playing catch up with the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class. It is fun, challenging, and irritating all at the same time. All I can tell you is I am sick of flowers… hence the butterfly.
The circle is made with Gelato’s in some random colours, blue, pink, yellow, orange, grey, and purple. The butterfly stamp is a Martha Stewart one from 2009, and is stamped in Distress ink .
I stamped the image with Dusty Concord, then watercolored in peacock feathers, and picked raspberry. The sentiment comes from the Handwritten Greetings set from Simon Says Stamp, and is stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black. As usual my card base is Neenah Solar white 110 lbs cardstock cut to a standard A2 size card, the pink pannel is out of my scrap bin, so I am unsure of where it came from and is 4x 5 1/4, and the front with image is Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolor paper cut to 3 3/4 x 5.
