This is another unusually busy card for me, but I think I quite like it! LOL!
first idea was to heat emboss the three images that are inside the
three large hearts, but for some reason two of the three Versamark
stamped images just would not pick up the Copper Embossing Powder!
gave up after three attempts, and settled for Basic Grey Archival Ink,
but I would still like to know why two of the images refused to pick up
the embossing powder!
I chose the Welcome stamp from the Wood Words Stamp Set,
the rabbit from A Good Day Stamp Set, and the Hello Baby stamp is
from the Moon Baby Stamp Set.
Wooden elements have never appealed to me,
but I have played with the hearts before on a previous card, and they
are really beginning to grow on me!
You can find them on page 196 in the
Annual Catalogue and are called Hearts & Stars Elements. They are
excellent value as you get 72 pieces for €7.50/£5.50.
used my Watercolour Pencils as regular pencils, to colour the rabbit. The colours I
used are Basic Grey for his body and ears, with a soft touch of Melon Mambo
on the outer edges of his ears, and also for his nose; I used Pacific
Point for his bow.
The Whisper White Baker’s Twine bows were tied around the heart frame before they
were adhered to the card front, with Fine Tip Glue Pen.
It was an
effort to do this with the Glue Pen, so when I was ready to adhere the medium heart
frames and the small solid hearts, I used Tombow which was so much
Designer Series Paper (DSP) that the hearts and images are adhered to
is the Naturally Eclectic DSP.
Then the DSP is on a layer of Pool Party
Cardstock (CS), and then a layer of Silver Foil.
card base is Whisper White CS, with a layer of Pool Party, and a top
layer of the Sale-a-bration (SAB) DSP which is called Springtime Foil.
When I created the first stamped images
on the DSP it didn’t work out because I’d cut it too short to fit the three
large hearts on.
Rather than waste it, I punched out the three images using my
1 3/8″ Scalloped Circle Punch, and adhered them along the bottom of the
CS inside the card!
That’s about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
