A Fab Scrap Card No.1


Hello my dears,  I'm sharing my latest card
which was made using papers from my
scrap box!!!  I keep a box full of bits of paper
that I can't bear to throw out.

My box is getting too full so I've decided that I'll make
one card a week using only the scraps in the box.

This is my first one.  It's a 6x6 Kraft card and the
papers are from Studio75 the yellow, green and red
are from the Yummy collection and the brown polka dot
is from an old collection which has been retired.



The flowers are hand made using Red Foamiran and I've 
used black oil pastels on the tips. 

The chipboard piece is from my stash and I made two cute
tassel's using some of the scrap paper.

I think it turned out quite nice in the end.  I'll be back
next week to share Fab Scrap Card No. 2

In the meantime here is another photo of the card showing
that it's also been decorated on the inside.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit, I
hope I've encouraged you to look again at your 
scrap box, I'm sure you have one. lol

Masking Technique Tutorial !!


Good morning my dears,  I hope you are all well and happy.  I'm here to
share my card and some tutorial tips on how to achieve
a different look from just one or two stamps for


I've put the tutorial into sections but will explain them with text underneath
the pictures.

I Chose a Crafters Companion stamp called Floral Symphony which gave me 
a great choice of stamps to use. 







I used Momento black ink to stamp my 1st image onto 
Sheen Douglass white stamping card 

I then stamped the same stamp onto a post it note and cut it out
ready to place over the 1st stamped image 



Place your post it note over the 1st image, re ink your stamp
and stamp where required. 




This is the result you are looking for, remove the post it note
or keep repeating the process until you are happy with the floral
arrangement. 


Next I chose to use the music notes as a background to my flowers.
At this stage I would stamp on a couple of post it notes to cover the flowers
completely.  I did it slightly different in order to show you the method.


If you only wanted one line of musical notes then this is the method.


I wanted 3 lines of music as my background so covered the
complete stamp with post it notes that had been stamped with the
flower image and cute out. 



I added the sentiment and then started to colour



Here is the finished card


 Thank you so much for coming in to visit, I hope you enjoyed my pictorial
instructions and please do come back and see me soon.

Hugs
