Welcome Little One

 

Today I have a card with image from Digital Paper which I felt in love. Project is very dimensional with lots of leaves and flowers. As a background I used papers We R Memory Keepers from “Madame Royale” and “Twirl”. There are also ribbons, raffia, laces and doily as well as lovely chipboard from store called Miszmasz Papierowy.

How to use used presents papers?(tutorial+tag)

 

Do you also have hidden used presents papers that you don’t want to through away? I definitely have 馃槈 Today I will show you how to used them as a element of a card.

So just prepare:

-piece of paper(I used 160gsm)

-brush

-PVA glue

-scissors

-chalk paint(acrylic or latex works well too)

-used presents paper

 

1.Tear up paper to a smaller pieces(you can also crumble it which gives extra texture) and glue them to a paper. If you like game Tetris this task is for you 馃槈聽 Don’t forget about the edges of overlapping pieces.

 

2.Cut hanging out pieces.

 

3.Leave it to dry(you can use a heat tool)

 

4.Paint a whole sheet using a dry brush technique but聽 leave some unpainted spots

 

5.When it dries you can use it as a background or cut it with a scissors or dies

 

Instead of paper for packing presents you can also use a silver lined paper from chocolate(crumbled and glued this way will give a nice texture).

I, of course, couldn’t stop myself from use my leaves straight away in a tag:

My project have handmade flower, pieces of ribbons and fabrics. Star it’s actually cutted in half styrofoam form and pasted with a silver from a Ferrero Rocher :p

My tag goes to Manuna challenge:

 

I’m also sending it to Craft Passion Bingo challenge- I’m using diagonal line- TWIGS/LEAVES-FLOWERS-LAYERS:

Once a Beautiful Lady

 

Today I have another Christmas card made for an order(I’m slowly catching this mood 馃檪 ) My work will be send by mail in bauble envelope, so it has to be more flat than my usual cards. I kept聽 this card in traditional Christmassy colours and inspiration for it was moodboard from a Studio 75. Main decoration here is lovely graphic from Lemoncraft, which reminds me of a beautiful carol(I took my sentiment from there). In my project I used sisal, diecutted elements, ribbons, snowballs made from cotton, stars cut out with knife from a whine cork, gems and an openwork sweater with silver thread( 馃檪 ). Background is paper called “Snow Queen” from Galeria Papieru.

Hi, I was playing with watercolours creating another card and I used paper towel to clean up the mess. Then I discovered beautiful pattern on it, so I glued this to card base to make a background. I cut petals from baby wipe, painted it with turquoise and gold acrylic paint and dry it with a heat gun. I allowed them to curl a bit to make nice petals and saw it together.

Centre of a flower is actually die cut snowflake. Sentiment was stamped and cut by hand. I also used my fabric and crochet flowers, another die cut and bit of sisal and few gems. Butterfly is heat embossed and painted with thread antennas. Leaves are painted with watercolours and twisted by hand.

I hope you like my card
