Little Ladybug - Thank You Card - Using Stencils - Video Tutorial


Today I'm sharing my final card created using the Little Ladybug stamp set. I will really miss this one, I've loved playing with it :o)

You have just a few more days to get this one if you want it. Remember it cannot be purchased, you can only get it for free with a qualifying order - personal or party.

I created another Ladybug Frame for this card. I did it a little differently though to my previous one - which you can see HERE. I used a stamp positioning tool instead of the Stamparatus - just to give you another option :o)


I used my homemade Cloud stencil again on this card and my new Grass stencil. If you want to see how I made these you can find the details HERE and HERE.

Here is the Video ...



Measurements

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

         
Basic Black card base                              ½ an A4 standard sheet of card
                                                                                               (US 8½”x 11”)

Create Your Own - Grass Stencils - Video Tutorial


I have another Create Your Own Video today showing you how I made my Grass stencils.

I show you two different methods of creating them - with a die and also by hand cutting.

The hand cutting method is a little tricky and you may need a little practice before you get any usable results - I know I did :o) 

Here is the Video ...

Best Dressed - with Happy Birthday To You


I used the Best Dressed 6" paper stack for today's card. 

The images were all cut from various sheets of the paper, as were the banners.

I used one of the Stitched Shapes Circle dies to cut out the focal panel and created a mat for it by using one of the Scalloped Layering Circle dies.


The background panel was created by using one of our Basic Pattern masks. I embossed it using my die cutting machine then stencilled over it using Mint Macaron ink. I have a Video showing you how to do this HERE.

The sentiment comes from the Happy Birthday To You stamp set and was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White powder.

Painted Poppies - Using A Wreath Building Template - Video Tutorial


All the Poppy Wreaths on these cards were created using my Wreath Building Templates. You can find my original post with more information on these HERE.

I created my first Poppy wreath just playing with the templates. I liked it so much that made it into a card.


I used Poppy Parade for the red ink on this one and then over-stamped the Black outlines using Versamark Onyx Black ink. This was then Heat Embossed using Clear powder.


The Painted Poppies stamp set does not contain any sentiments, so I chose one from the Bloom & Grow set. This I Heat Embossed using White powder.


I used Rich Razzleberry ink for the Wreath this time. I did try Blackberry Bliss but it was too dark and the Black embossing didn't show up very well. I think it matches the colour on the papers really well though.


The Designer Series Papers for all the cards come from the Peaceful Poppies 12" pack.


This is the card I created in the Video. I used a 5" Template to create the Wreath - stamping first the colour layer and then the Black and heat embossing. 


Here is the Video ...
