I have one more card to show you today from a recent class. I'm always trying to showcase different products and different techniques to keep people interested and expand their crafting horizons! This card did quite a bit of both! Here it is:
The background was inspired by a Stampin'Up! blog which reminded me about using the sponge brayers to get ink on some paper. I used Peekaboo Peach, Powder Pink and Berry Burst with the foam brayers on Shimmer White paper for some extra sparkle. They are fun to use because you have quite a bit of control over how much ink you wish to put on. I then cut out the center with a diamond pattern die from the Oh So Eclectic set. Then, I ran my piece through the Big Shot with the Ruffles embossing folder and adhered some gold fold paper on the back of it, peeking through the diamond cutouts. That's a few steps for a background, but it was fun! I then used the flowers and leaves in the Oh So Eclectic set to decorate the top, added a sentiment and some gold thread. This was a fun card but it did take some extra time to cut everything out, especially in a class setting. I like to do both - whip a card out in a hurry and take some extra time to make a truly interesting and multi-dimensional card.
It's the weekend! I will be getting ready for my Holiday Catalog Reveal party! I hope you can stop by, it will be well worth it, I promise. It is next Tuesday, August 29th, from 3 to 7 p.m. at my home. Please contact me for the rest of the details!
