Have you been following the introduction of Volume 12 of Card Creations over at Plugged In with Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking? Well today I'm thrilled to be hopping with other designers to share some new creations and give away a copy of the magazine - one lucky winner will be chosen on each blog!
This issue is fully-loaded-sorted-by-occasion-and-full-of-new-ideas wunderbar. And the best part?... it's a hard copy! Shhh, don't tell anyone I said that.
We were asked to work with a sketch from the issue. So. I decided to use some trends (vellum, sequins, stencils) and a sentiment I love for its versatility (can be for all occasion, encouragement or even sympathy) along with the sketch:
I followed the sketch by laying down "mask" strips of scrap paper in a grid and misting over them with Turquoise and Sunflower Glimmer Mists. Then I dry embossed the vellum panel with the Flower Corner folder from Hobby Solution and turned the two into a shaker with sequins and a butterfly trapped between them. (TIP: Glue a few items down before completing your shaker so that not all fillers fall to the bottom.) Adhered that to the card front along with a PP strip on which I heat embossed my sentiment from STAMPlorations Trendy Feathers set.
I've got another card to share quickly. This was a by-product of the above card. I have a large sheet of contact paper backing in the box I use for misting. The excess mist beads up on it and I can spritz it with water to use to create a watercolor background. Like this.
I then applied Golden Glitz Delicata pigment ink through a stencil made from the Sizzix Bigz I Love You die and stamped "Mr and Mrs" over that.
Here's the hop order if you missed anyone. If you've been hopping you should have arrived here from Deena B.'s blog. I'm the last stop on the hop, but head back to Plugged in with Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking to leave a comment - heard there might be a lovely prize ;)))
