Thank you for your comments and visits to my last blog post, I did say I would be back soon lol! and here I am, ready to share another card with you all. This was made using the gorgeous, beautiful new Sue Baker Presents 'Birds & Blossoms Collection.' I do hope you managed to tune in to the Create & Craft T.V. Channel at 9am yesterday, such brilliant shows, fabulous products and paints to die for lol! not to mention our lovely Sue herself! The card below was one of my card samples made for the show and uses the stunning paints by Cadence. Hope you enjoy my tutorial.
Stamp the blossom branch in each corner of a 7" x 7" white base card using a black ink pad.
Cut a piece of white card five and a half inches square, cut a 2" circle from a post it note and place it centrally but just above the middle of this piece of card.
Next paint all four Cadence Metallic paint colours - Green blue, Blue rose, Gold rose & Gold aqua, across the card, painting over the post it note circle using a flat paint brush.
Remove the post it note circle.
Next stamp the birds on a branch in the centre with the heads of the two birds just into the setting sun, using a black ink pad.
Cut out a 2" circle from some white linen effect card and colour with watered down gold finger wax. Add some brush strokes across the sun with the Cadence Gold rose and Blue rose metallic paints.
Glue the setting sun in position on top of the heads of the birds. Paint a hillside on the bottom left of the card using the Lilac chalk paint.
Stamp the sentiment in the top left corner, using a black ink pad.
Matt this onto a slightly larger square of black card and matt this onto the white base card.
Stamp the birds on a branch onto a spare piece of white card and colour with Promarker alcohol pens and cut them out.
Glue them in position over the original stamped image, their heads just inside the setting sun.
Stamp some of the blossoms on the branch onto some white card, colour them and cut out. 3D them onto the original blossoms, using silicone glue.
Stamp 6 flowers onto a piece of white card using a black ink pad. Colour with promarker pens, adding some flower stamen using a gold pen. Glue one on top of the other, making 3 double flowers.
Add a tiny amount of silicone glue under the top petals of each flower.
Glue one to the bottom left corner of the design.
Glue two to the bottom right corner.
The card is now finished. I do hope you like it. I have so enjoyed working with this delightful collection.
Look after yourselves and I will be back again very soon with another one of my card samples that was made for the Sue Baker Presents shows yesterday on the Create & Craft Channel.
Catch you all again soon my Lovelies.
Love and rainbows,
Crafty Hugs, Jennifer xx.
