I thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the talent He has bestowed on all of us!
I have been artistic all of my life and love experimenting with different mediums and techniques. This blog is my creative outlet to share my passion for cardmaking and papercrafting!
I wanted to create a card
using the PP154 colors at this week’s Paper Players Challenge and decided to
incorporate five different stamp sets along with one of my new favorite
Framelits™- Chalk Talk. Some the the stamp sets- Everything Eleanor, Ex Libris and Teeny Tiny Wishes have been around for a while ad are "old" favs and the new sets, Best of Butterflies and Lovely Romance are working their way into my favs :-)
If you have the time, and have not already done so, check
out their The Paper Players site- the Design Team and other entries are wonderful for this fresh
To create this card:
Stamp the flowers from
Everything Eleanor and the butterfly from Best of Butterflies using Early
Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Watercolor using the AquaPainter™ with ink
from the Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Classic Ink Pads- add Moonlight Smooch™
Pearlized Accent Paint to the wings of the butterfly.
Carefully cut out the
flowers and the butterfly. Gently roll
up the butterfly wings to give it a more realistic look.
WIth Polka Dot Ribbon Bow
Using Bermuda Bay, ink the
medallion stamp from Lovely Romance, stamp off and stamp onto Whisper White
cardstock. Use the Big Shot™ and the
large Chalk Talk Framelit™ to cut a label from the stamped image and another one
from Bermuda Bay cardstock. Cut the
Bermuda Bay label in half vertically and layer behind the stamped label. Ink the antennaw only on the butterfly stamp
and stamp towards the bottom left hand corner.
Use Sponge Daubers with
Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to distress the paper a bit and tone down the
Stamp the Ex Libris
background stamp using Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink onto Baked Brown Sugar
cardstock. Distress the edges using the
Distressing Tool and mount onto a piece of distressed Bermuda Bay cardstock. Using the Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown
Sugar to distress the edges a bit as well.
With Paper Ribbon Bow
Use Sticky Strip behind the
tag and attach the Victorian Crochet Lace- ruffle the lace. Add the ½” Polka Dot Bermuda Bay Grosgrain
Ribbon at the bottom of the Chalk Talk tag to cover the bottom edge, add to the
background layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the stamped flowers,
butterfly ad triple ribbon grosgrain bow to the tag. Stamp the sentiment using Baked Brown Sugar
Classic Ink and punch out using the Word Window Punch.
Add the Pearls to finish off
the card. *** REVISION *** Not sure if I like the Polka Dot bow so I revised with a cardstock (paper) bow, Antique Brad and framed the sentiment :-) If you have a chance, let me know which one you prefer ....
