Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with you for my last time as a current Design Team member. What a fantastic 6 month term it has been! Thanks so much to Amanda for giving me the opportunity to be part of such a professional, dynamic design team. I have learnt so very much and the products are just AMAZING! For my last project, I have made two cards using a number of elements from the February Just Add Paper Kit ‘Fresh Cut’. I thought I would show how else, apart from a scrapbook layout, you could use these elements. Pieces of the kit can be purchased instore by clicking http://d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au/c/749/February—Fresh-Cut.html.
There are many gorgeous bits n pieces in this kit – for this card, I have used the flowers, coloured doily, flair and washi tape. The doily was layered with a die cut circle cut from patterned paper in my stash. I love this set of stitched dies I bought online – it gives a little bit of interest to an ordinary circle!
The background of the card was created using the packaging technique. This involves putting some distress ink on a piece of clear packaging, spritzing with water and ‘smoosching’ on the card front. The image is from an amazing artist Pernilla Nilsson – look her up on Facebook where she kindly shares some of her images for free download. The image is coloured using Touch Five Markers and Stampin Up blendabilities. Some Wink of Stella was added to the crown to add some sparkle with some enamel dots to finish off the crown.
Here are some close up shots of these gorgeous embellishments.
Now for the second card….this card was made using a Kraft base and a gelli print I had from some time ago. Whilst it is a little difficult to see in the photo, the print has some shimmer in it from the various paints used.
The feature piece of this card is of course the veneer bicycle – just LOVE it! I backed the wheels with some yellow patterned paper to pick up the yellow to go with the cute lil bitty bow. The ‘celebrating you’ is a chipboard piece – the whole range can be seen in store by clicking here – http://d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au/c/626/Chipboard.html. This piece was inked in black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The doily is really pretty with the polka dots as a subtle backdrop. The online store has felt, foil and a variety of paper doilies – click here http://d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au/c/1/Doilies.html to see the range. The card was finished off with some sequins – always a nice touch to add some additional sparkle and colour. Instore there are many colours of sequins on offer http://d-lishscraps.openstores.com.au/c/672/Sequins—Loose.html.
Thank you all so much for your support and words of encouragement during my design term with D-lish Scraps. Whilst I am sad to be leaving, I have a grateful heart for being offered this opportunity.
