For my board I have used a white piece of A4 card. First I used distress inks to make circles of different colours, then sprayed with water, dried and then made bigger water splats. Next I use a mask to make swirls of dots in purple and greens. Then I embossed with WOW embossing powders , stars and wizzy bits and finished off with stamping words and potion bottles filling in the gaps.
So first I cut up my board to make my fancy gate fold birthday card adding stamped fussy cut out images mounted onto 3D foam tape, using Woodwares "Wizardry" stamp set by Francoise Read.
Then I made a gift box...
And a matching tag...with the bits I had left.
Here's the set altogether.
Really enjoyed this challenge !! Why not have a go at a master board yourself !!
Here's another bright and sunny coloured card I've made using Little Claire's "April Showers", this months fun club stamp set .
Stamped and coloured my image using spectrum Noir pens.
Sorry I can't remember who the papers are by, but I had loads of fun fussy cutting out loads of the flowers from one sheet and then shaping them. Also die cut some leaves to go with them. Finished off with inking all the edges and my usual faux stitching.
It's funny how we start a card which for me usually is with the image and I build round that, but for this gate fold card it was with the papers !!
My sweet friend Nicki gave me some left over papers from the fab paper collection called "Blue Bay" by Kaisercraft and for me it shouts wedding !!
And how sweet is the Little Claire stamp set called "On Your Wedding Day " . I've paper pieced the happy couple and decoupaged the bride, then coloured their hair and skin using spectrum noir pens.
Even the little dog got paper pieced !!
The sentiment comes with the stamp set too.
To finish off I made two rolled roses using the teal card which came from my friend Carol as I didn't have anything which matched (cheers Carol !!) what would we do without crafty friends......and two ribbon bows !!
I've used this time a Joanna Sheen decoupage sheet which has loads of layers to cut out. Papers are from my stash, faux stitching round edges, a few die cuts and a couple of ribbon roses from the fab trim I got in one of my local shops !!
