hope you’ve enjoyed the Easter weekend, and haven’t over-indulged with
chocolate Easter eggs!
Yesterday I finished stamping all my swaps for
Onstage next weekend, so all I need to do now is to adhere the card front onto one
Flirty Flamingo Cardstock layer, then write and print out the labels that give a list of ingredients, plus my contact details for the
back of each card.
Then hubby will adhere the labels on, and bag each swap
into a cello bag for me – I am blessed!
Although I’ve seen some fabulous
cards on Pinterest that have been created using this set, and I think it’s a great image, I find it a
bit unusual to have a wigwam being used for a baby card!
you can see, my thoughts didn’t hinder my creative juices, although I
did change my mind about the actual design three or four times as I
worked my way through the design.
I used the same idea as I did yesterday for the foil doily; that is, I used my Bone Folder to give the
doily a good rub over to flatten the die cut edges on the reverse side, because that’s the side I wanted to use!
amazing how much difference using the Bone Folder like this makes to the doily so it looks perfect when used on a card!
Basic Grey Archival Ink, I stamped the wigwam on a piece of Whisper
White (CS), and then coloured the teddy bear, the beads, and
a small part of the outside of the wigwam using my Soft Sky
Then I fussy cut it, and die cut a circle using the Layering
Circles Framelits Dies and a piece of Soft Sky and Whisper White
Designer Series Paper from Naturally Eclectic.
The actual white of the
design are plus signs, which is the same as the design on the stamp I
used to decorate the sentiment strip.
sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I used Basic Grey Archival
Ink to stamp it in the centre of a strip I’d cut to fit the width of the
card front; then I stamped a few plus signs, using Soft Sky Ink, on either end of the sentiment strip.
To give the strip a holey look, similar to the doily, I
punched two Whisper White CS strips using the Decorative Border Ribbon
Punch, and adhered them to the strip.
I dry-embossed the top Soft Sky CS layer using the Dynamic Basket
Weave Embossing Folder and adhered it to a layer of Whisper White CS,
which I then adhered to a Soft Sky CS card base.
This embossing folder
was available as a Sale-a-bration gift which has now
ended, but it will be available again when the new Annual Catalogue
is launched on 1st June 2018.
adhered the doily to the top layer using Tombow, and then the DSP with
Dimensionals and the wigwam with Dimensionals, too.
I also adhered the sentiment to the card front using
To finish my card, I adhered a layer of Whisper White CS
inside the card, and stamped another wigwam using Basic Grey Archival
Next I coloured it in the same way as I did the one on the
have three days left to get myself totally ready to drive up to Telford on Friday, ready for CentreStage on Friday evening, and OnStage all day on Saturday.
I also need to make a video for Sunday, which I hope will
be showing how I made my swaps using the Stamparatus! With no to time to waste, that’s it from me
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.☺
