Flower Fancy….

I must apologise if I have case’d this card from someone as I am not too sure.  Please do let me know if you recognise it.  It was one we did way back in July of this year.  Where does the time go?

I love the bold bright colours of this card.  Not usually my colours but that is the great thing about Teaching & doing Techniques, it does get you right out of your comfort zone.  Plus I like to try & create cards that I know the ladies in the class will like, as well as creating cards to suit each individual style.

 
Until next time, Happy Stampin’

At Last….

Where does the time go?????  I have realised it is nearly a week since my last post !!!!

For our card this arvo, we used the Techinque – Crayon Resist.  It doesn’t matter how often I see this technique, I never seem to tire of it.

It is not my usual card, but I thought I would try & start using some of the colours that I don’t usually go for & this being one of the combinations that just happened.  The tutorial may be found on this post.  The layout of the card has been around for sometime, but I wanted something easy to start off the new year!

Measurements –
Base Card – Tempting Turquoise Cardstock – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Early Expresso Cardstock – 5 7/8″ x 2 3/4″ or 7cm x 15cm
Layer 2 – Glossy Cardstock – 5 7/8″ x 2 1/2″ or 7cm x 6cm


Inside…

I randomly stamped my images onto the Glossy Cardstock using Staz-On Ink & allowed to dry. 

Using a White Wax Crayon, I randomly coloured around stamped areas that I wanted to keep white.  I then grabbed my sponge, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Yellow & Regal Rose Inks, & sponged all over the card until such time I had all the white coloured & I was happy with the result.  Once it was all dry, I buffed using a tissue. 
I adhered the Glossy Card to the piece of Early Expresso Cardstock & tied a piece of Ribbon around the end.  I stamped my greeting onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock in Early Expresso Ink, punched it out with my Decorative Label Punch.  As I wanted to add a small border around the white, I punched 2 pieces of Early Expresso Cardstock with the same punch & cut both these pieces in half, one crossway & the other downways.  I adhered 3 of the 4 pieces to the greeting piece.

I then adhered the top of the greeting to the back of the stamped flower piece prior to adhering to the card.  I applied 3 Rhinestones to the bottom of the card.
