Free As A Bird - Patchwork Card - Video Tutorial



Today's Video will show you how I created these lovely Patchwork cards :o)


I've been playing with my Free As A Bird stamp set and Bird Ballad paper :o) So much so that I had a pile of small scrappy bits saved that I didn't want to throw away - this paper is just too gorgeous!

So .... my card was born. The inspiration came from a design layout over at Pagemaps. 



I dug out my Basic Black marker and had a play with some faux stitching .... it's been a while since I did this! 

This card was my first attempt at colouring these super sweet birds on a branch. I had to cut one off ... but I managed to save him, so will no doubt use him on another card somehow ... somewhen :o) 



This is the card I create in the Video. 

I changed the main colour for this one, switching from the Pool Party to Daffodil Delight. The flowers this time were Calypso Coral - in the first card they were Petal Pink.


 The sentiment was cut out using one of the Smooth Sailing dies.

Here is the Video ...




Measurements

Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow all the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow all the imperial measurements (inches).

Basic Black card base                                                  ½ an A4 standard sheet of card
                                                                                                                        (US 8½” x 11”)
Whisper White (inside)                                               14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
Daffodil Delight                                                           14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)

Whisper White                                                            14.4cm x 10cm        (US 5¼x 4”)
   ... trimmed after adding the Patchwork to …         14cm x 9.6cm          (US 5x 3”)


You will need more Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black card for stamping and die cutting. You will also need ‘scraps’ of the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to create your Patchwork.

A Good Man - Great Guy Card


I've been playing with the A Good Man stamp set! This was a set I had to have as soon as I saw it in the catalogue. I think the images are just so precious!

The background papers used are both from the Neutrals 6" stack.


I used the Stitched Nested Labels dies to cut out the mats for my image. Notice that there is an even border all the way around my white mat .... this is not how they would normally layer - I altered the Shaded Spruce mat for this. If you would like to know how it's done, you can find my Video HERE.

I also used the straight die in the set to add the stitching around the little sentiment mat :o)

Above The Clouds - Card Box To Hold A Dimensional 6" Square Card - Video Tutorial


Hello There :o) 

In today's Video I show you how to create a card box to hold a 6" Square card. The box is ⅞" (2.25cm) deep, so it can be a very dimensional card. 

I created the box to hold the card I created in my previous post HERE. This has a large 3D element on it and I wanted to protect it from being crushed.


My first box coordinated with another card I had created earlier. This one used some of the paper from the 6" Subtles stack. I love the combination of Calypso Coral and Pool Party.
























This is the Box I created in the Video. I used some of the papers from the Bird Ballad 12" Designer Paper Pack.

Here is the Video ...
