Hope you're all enjoying a lovely week!
This week I have picked up the Global Design Project after a little break from this challenge. This week is a sketch challenge and it's a simple one witha technique that I use alot for quick cards.
This challenge screams TRIPLE BANNER PUNCH which is actually one of my can't craft without items! It is a really versatile item that cute banners any length but in widths of 1/2", 1", 1,1/2" and 2". It is great for cards, tradition scrapbooking, pocket scrapbooking, 3d items and lots more!
We are currently in the process of building a craft barn in the garden for me so I've not had a great deal of crafting time, plus the craft stuff is everywhere right now! For my challenge entry I decided to do some heat embossing....after I managed to find the heat tool!
One of my most favourite and used stamp sets is called "Butterfly Basics". For this card, I used the butterfly stamp with white embossing powder to create texture to the cardstock I then used a sponge brayer with a mixture of Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise to create the colourful bakground. If you're not familiar with this technique, it really is a great way to add a different dimension to your cards, and building up your own backgrounds.
I have cut 4 banners; one in Vellum, 1 in Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate (the same size as the Vellum), 1 in Very Vanilla and 1 in Bermuda Bay. Althought I haven't used Bermuda Bay ink, this is the cardstock colour that matches best with the background that I have created with the Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise inks).
Using the "love" thinlit die from "Sunshine Wishes" set, I have cut out from the Bermuda Bay cardstock and used the negative image.
I used the 1/8" Gold Ribbon to secure everything together.
Here is the list of all the products that I used to make this card.
Thanks for reading, I hope you like my entry to this week's Global Design Project!
Hope you're having a good week so far! We found out yesterday we're expecting another little girl in november sk it's smiles all round at the manor especially for little Florence who has been adamant that she's having a sister right from the start!
Bringing you the final card from this month's card class...and the fancy fold instalment!
Each month i try to include a card that is folded slightly differently than the normal style. Sometimes they're reallt fancy and other times they're just slightly fancy!
Once the card has been folded it makes a 5" x 5" square card.
To create this style of card, rather than scoring in the middle of the card, score it at 2.5" from either end.
I have added some DSP to the side panels of the card from the Pop of Pink range.
For the cross-over section in the middle I have used the Layering Square Dies to create a frame effect and layered using the new Foam Adhesive Strips.
The sentiment comes from the Designer Tin of Cards set and the silver butterfly shapes are cut from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits Dies.
I liked this "fancy fold" card as it looks effective but is so easy to make and could be great for using up all those off-cuts of DSP we all keep!
Thay concludes our card class set for July. I hoped you liked the cardsm
Next month I will be doing a notecard and box set at the card class...dates to follow!
Have a great week!
I hope you're all enjoying the weekend!
As promised here is the 2nd card from my July card class...
To make this card I have used a scallop edge card base and added a Night of Navy card mat to bring in another colour.
I have used a 4" x 4" piece of the Irresistably Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper which are all white and used a sponge brayer to add the colour. These papers are really fab because they have a shiny embossed finish but you can add as much or as little colour as you wish!
"Sunshine" has come from the Sunshine Wishes Framelits dies and added to a strip of Vellum to add another texture.
I enjoyed using the sponge brayers because they don't leave any mess and can be washed (gently) ane re-used after!
This afternoon I shall be watching the Wimbledon final and hopefully doing some crafting!
