Hello there Fellow Bloggers, Friends and Visitors,
Well it's been yet another dull, dreary wet day here. Where oh where have the blue skies and sunshine gone? will they ever come back lol! I sincerely hope so. Tonight I would like to share a card with you which was made for Imagination Craft's last TV show on Hochanda in 2015. I have used their pretty 'tumble leaf' stencil. When I first looked at the stencil, I only saw leaves but when I began using it, I realised there were some pretty little heart shapes. I do hope you like it.
Begin by folding the ready creased light cream card down the centre crease line, making a 7"x7" base card on which to work. I then matted a smaller piece of green card onto the base card, leaving a cream border showing.
Take a smaller piece of light cream card and lay the 'tumble leaf' stencil onto it and colour through the design using the distress inks and a piece of cut n' dry foam. Add some watered down orange oxidized Starlight Paint to the hearts only. This leaves a delicate shimmery layer on top of the hearts.
Remove the stencil and when dry, wrap a piece of green/silver organza ribbon down the left-hand side of the card, securing on the reverse. Fix this to the base card.
Colour a pice of white card with the Orange Oxidized Starlight Paint (not watered down this time!) then die-cut three roses from it. Glue these evenly placed, on the top half of the ribbon.
Die-cut the butterfly using the White Rose butterfly die and paint it with the Orange Oxidized and Menthol Starlight Paints. Glue this to the top right corner.
Die-cut a label using the Spellbinder's label die from green card and glue to the centre of the base card. Die-cut the centre, using the same die from cream card and colour around the edges with wild honey distress ink.
Stamp the 'Hello' stamp from the 'Friendship Sentiments stamp set by Imagination Crafts, onto the centre of the label, using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with silver embossing powder. Fix this to the green label using some sticky foam pads.
Imagination Crafts have another TV show coming up very soon on Hochanda, so please keep popping back, as I will let you know nearer the date, when and at what time the show will take place. There are some fabulous new products for you. I am working on some samples at the moment and really enjoying working with them. I will of course be showing you some 'sneaky peeks' as usual.
I'll be back soon with another project. So, until then have fun and be happy.
Love and rainbows,
Big hugs Jennifer xx.
