My second upline Rachel Tessman does monthly gathering with her group of demonstrators either in person or on Facebook (since not everyone lives near). You have no idea how much fun they are and she always sends a make & take. This one is featuring the new Painted Harvest stamp set and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
Each square of the Designer Series Paper is 1-inch and the Early Espresso Square is 3 1/2″
I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge today. I stamped the flowers using Staz-on then colored them with the Calypso Coral and Old Olive watercolor pencils then I blended using the blender pens. I also used an Aqua Painter and some watery Soft Sky ink to go around the image to soften it. I attached the water color paper to a piece of Calypso Coral, wrapped the baker’s twine around it and then used dimensionals to add it to the card.
Score the piece of Soft Sky at 2 ½” and 5 ½” then flip over to score at 1 ¼” and 6 ¾”. The indented side is the one that should be out when folded.
Using Early Espresso, stamp “Let’s Celebrate Your Day!” on the right side of the 1” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP. Adhere to the piece of Old Olive.
Using Early Espresso, stamp the “Happy Birthday” on the 2 ½” x 3 ¾” piece of Whisper White. Adhere to the piece of Old Olive. Adhere to the middle of the card as shown.
Cut the little girl paper around the girl to about 2 7/8” x 3 7/8” (I cut in between each of the girls keeping the cupcakes). Cover the back with SNAIL and attach to the piece of Whisper White. Die cut the little girl.
Adhere the 1” x 4” pieces of DSP to the small sections of the card base as shown.
Add Tear & Tape to about 1” of the back of the Old Olive strip on each side. Remove the backing from one side and attach to the folded piece. Then remove Tear & Tape backing, fold card and attach to the other side. See below
Add adhesive to the legs of the little girl and add to the card.
Here are the cards I got in return for my Berry Burst Glossy Cardstock Card.
This one was my favorite! Karen is always showing us new tricks and this is no exception. She used four colors of re-inkers and wadded up plastic wrap to create a one of a kind background. Each re-inker has it’s own plastic wrap wad and you simply stamp on the Shimmery White Cardstock with it to create a watercolor look background. It’s much prettier in person, I need to work on my photography. 🙂
Here is another one using the new embossing paste that I simply must have soon.
