Technique…



Inside of Card…



For the class at Caloundra Community Centre, we did the Technique – Baby Wipe.  This one has been around for some time, but I never tire of it & for the life of me, can’t understand why I don’t do it more often.  Tutorial for this Technique may be found Here…
Now I have made 2 complete different cards, each using the same design from pre-SU.  Mind you, these look nothing like the original.

Base Card – Tempting Turquoise – 4 7/8″ x 4 1/4″ or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 4 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Daffodil Yellow – 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ or 11.5cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 4 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ or 11cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 – Melon Mambo – 3 1/2″ x 3″ or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 3 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ or 8.5cm x 7cm

For the colours of my Baby Wipe, I used Re-Inkers – Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo & Elegant Eggplant.

Layer 1 –
I adhered a piece of Taffeta Ribbon across the top half of Whisper Cardstock & then applied to the Base Card – Tempting Turquoise.

Layer 2 –
First up, I stamp the flower images randomly across the larger piece of Whisper White.  Then using Old Olive Ink, I stamped the leaf image randomly around the flowers & adhered to Daffodil Yellow Cardstock.  I adhered Taffeta Ribbon across the top part of the card, ensuring that both ribbon pieces matched up evenly on the cardstocks.  I tied a bow & adhered to card.

Layer 3 –
Stamp the butterfly images randomly over the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock & adhere to the Melon Mambo Cardsock.  I adhered this piece to the 2nd layer & then adhered the whole lot to the base card.

I stamped the sentiment using Old Olive Ink directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock.

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Flower Fancy, All a Flutter, So Happy for You
Inks – Old Olive
Cardstock – Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Daffodil Yellow, Melon Mambo
Ribbon – 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon – Daffodil Yellow
Re-Inkers – Tempting Turquoise. Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant

Accessories – Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive

Until next time when I will post the 2nd card.

Enjoy!

CCMC 149…

Yes, another posting & another challenge.  You may need your sunglasses for this one.  When I saw the challenge, I wanted to use the DSP – Sweet & Slumber, while at the same time using Basic Black Cardstock.
This challenge comes from Create with Connie & Mary  Why not hop over & have a go yourself!
Base Card – Basic Black – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – Score & Fold in half
Layer 1 – Daffodil Delight – 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ or 11.5cm x 6.5cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 4 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ or 11cm x 6cm
Layer 3 – Tangerine Tango – 3″ x 2 3/8″ or 9cm x 6.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 2 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ or 8.5cm x 6cm

I randomly spread Shimmering Paint – Frost White over the Whisper White Cardstock & allowed to dry.

Prior to adhering DSP to my Daffodil Delight Cardstock, I punched corners of both pieces using my Corner Edge Punch.  This was adhered to the Base Card, as per the sketch. 
Using Tangerine Tango & Daffodil Delight Inks & SU Sponges, I sponged over the top of the Shimmer Paint.  I stamped the butterfly image using Basic Black Ink.  This was adhered to Tangerine Tango & then to the card.
I cut a small piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock & punched one side using my Scallop Edge Punch.  I then attached Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon along the middle of this piece & tied a bow prior to adhering to the card.

Again, I have no sentiment.  I find this sometimes covers a lot of occasions.
Supplies –
Stamp Set – All a Flutter
Ink – Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango
Cardstock – Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Tangerine Tango
DSP – Sweet & Sour Speciality
Punches – Scallop Edge, Corner Edge

Tea Party…

G’Day Stampers,

This is the 2nd card we did at our Technique Class the other day- Basic Masking. 

Mind you, this was supposed to be a male’s card, but for a male’s card, it didn’t turn out too bad!  Of course, the ladies had a big giggle!  There is always next time!

Using Stampin’ Up!’s® White Gel Pen – best I have found on the market, I’ve coloured the bottom circles of the flowers to let them stand out a little & then gone over the top with Crystal Effects!

Tip – Stampin’ Up!’s® Paper Snips are great for cutting into the tiniest of areas.  The precision-ground tips allow you to cut to the very end of the blade!

Until next time, Enjoy!
