create today’s card I’ve used a new product as well as a a few that will
only be around until tomorrow, and then they retire!
are the 2015 – 2017 InColours – Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint
Macaroon, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder – which includes the
cardstock, inks, marker pens etc.
Also retiring is the Succulent Garden
Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Happy Birthday Thinlit is a fabulous new addition to our dies.
is a standard A6 size (A2 in US) so this gives you a good idea how big
the die is.
I adhered them all together using Tombow. Then I die cut the sentiment from Tip Top Taupe
CS, using my Precision Base Plate.
I painted the sentiment with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen – I think you can see some
sparkle on photograph no. 3 if you look really closely! LOL!
Then I adhered the sentiment to the card
front using Tombow.
flower and the leaves are from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set which
is a two-box set, and has a co-ordinating Thinlits called Flourishes.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a die for the stamped flowers, nor the leaves ,
so I did a lot of fussy cutting yesterday evening!
Using Sweet Sugarplum
Ink, I stamped two identical flowers and then using Mint Macaroon Ink, I
stamped six pairs of leaves.
I fussy cut one complete flower and the
second one I did around the white line.
I started adhering a pair of leaves behind two long and one
short petal, and then missed the next group and adhered a set behind the
third group, and so on around the flowers. I hope I’ve explained that
had to leave one gap otherwise the overall flower would have been too
large to fit in beside the sentiment.
I painted all the petals with my
Wink of Stella but left the leaves plain. Again, I think you can see some sparkle in photographs 3 and 4.
Using one Dimensional, I
adhered the smaller flower on top of the larger flower and then adhered the flower on
the card front using Tombow!
I finished the flower with a large Basic
complete my card, I adhered a layer of Tip Top Taupe CS inside the card,
together with a layer of Whisper White CS, on which I’d stamped the large
flower with Sweet Sugarplum Ink, part on and part off the layer.
Special note: I have added a new page to my blog called Videos.
Last week one of my YouTube subscribers asked if I put the list of Products & Measurements for my videos on my website.
I will continue to put the details in the box below the video, but I’ll also put them on the Videos page.
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting,
