I have a bunch of blog posts that I really need to catch up on so there is going to be a little glut of them. I may not remember all the the details of each card but I hope you enjoy seeing some extra pics of each project. If you stop by, please do leave a quick little comment to let me know as it makes my heart happy to know that these blog posts are of a little interest. 😉
In this project I had so much fun building a little mini scene for ‘Fairy Tenderhearted’ from TiddlyInks.
After colouring her with copic markers I fussy cut her out right to the black line so I could incorporate her in my little rainbow scene.
I cut the beautiful ‘Creative Imaginations’ – Loolah themed Designer Paper using the Lawn Fawn large rectangle stitched die.
Then to build the base of my scene I cut a pale blue and white card stock using the Lawn Fawn circle stitched die. Then using the Lawn Fawn stitched cloud die set I cut the white card stock to help build upon my layers for the scene.
Stitch Die Tip:
When ordering dies with stitches, I highly recommend ordering multiple sets of dies from the same company. That way all the stitch sizes should be the same across the different designs helping your projects be uniform. I made the mistake of ordering some dies from a different company not even thinking about this and soon realised I wouldn’t be able to use the same dies on the same project together.
Next I coloured the rainbow chipboard with copic markers and then coated the rainbow with clear glitter embossing powder. The little chipboard clouds were also covered with WOW! Diamond white embossing glitter.
My favourite thing about the new cream chipboard is that I can colour my words to match the project using copic markers. Using three shades of the BG’s I created a gradient from darkest to lightest on the word. I coated the base layer with WOW! diamond white embossing glitter to tie in with the clouds and then glued my coloured friend word on top.
Then I stamped and embossed the ‘sending you hugs’ sentiment for the final element.
The fun part began when I started to assemble all the little pieces, building the layers with 3D foam. My final touch is to add some glossy accents to the top of the word once everything is assembled as I am less likely to touch it and mess it all up.
I just love how the chipboard embellishments can bring a little something extra and different to a cute little image and card.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
