Here are 2 cards we made for club last night. The ladies loved them. The St Patrick's Day is from the Occasions Mini Catalog and the inside 'Celebrate' is from the Outline Occasions set in the Sale-a-brations(SAB) catalog. The butterfly card is from the Fresh Vintage set in the Sale-a-bration catalog.
One of these days I'm going to get into the video/tutorial world and then I could just send you to my video to watch me make my cards. But I'm just not there YET.
If you're coming to my Stamp Camp on Saturday, Feb 25th, we'll be making a similar pop-up card. You'll get hands-on how to make this type of fun card.If you're local to Northern VA, and are not on my EVITE list for stamp camps, just send an email to me and I'll happily add you.
The Square Lattice Embossing folder was used with the Big Shot Machine to create the textured background and it's done with a piece of 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 piece of Vellum Cardstock. It's such a cool affect when it turns the raised portion of the vellum to white. We heat embossed the St. Patrick's Day by stamping with Garden Green Craft ink and then covering with Clear Embossing Powder and then heat seting with our heat gun. Then flip it over and use our coordinating Stamin' Write Markers to color inside the outlined words. It looks messy when you're coloring but when you flip it back to the right side, it's beautiful. This technique of coloring is called Stained Glass. After coloring the vellum, we used the Labels Collection Framelits and the Big Shot to cut out the St. Patrick's Day image and the next size up for the mat behind it. We used the Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the vellum to weave the new 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon through. The colors used on this card are Lucky Limeade (new In-color) and Garden Green.
The colors for the butterfly card are inspired from the flowers blooming in my front yard this week! Last night snow....not much but the flowers are confused. The daffodils are budding and the tulips are coming up. We are having crazy weather.
This card layout is inspired from my sister Donna. Thanks sis. As demonstrators and sisters, we love sharing ideas with each other and, it keeps us close even though we're hundreds of miles apart.
Wonderful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Fresh Vintage stamp set. Pearls for the big butterfly. Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker. It's hard to see that we colored in the flowers and dots with the marker, which pulls the colors together nicely. Concord Crush is an in-color that will be going away in a few months. I will miss it.
