Happy Saturday to you all. The poor little lambs in the field next to us don't know what's hit them lol! it is bitterly cold out there today and the hill tops are covered with snow! looks very beautiful though lol! I have been out and done my shopping and I'm pleased to say, I'm now sitting in front of our beautiful warm wood burner and that is where I intend to stay lol!! I can craft on my knee!!! I thought I would post my blog this afternoon as I want to watch the telly tonight with my Hubby.
My card for today is made using Imagination Craft's wonderful 'ballroom dancers' Art Stamp, I know I say it every time but I adore this stamp, so beautiful. Well, here is how I have used it.
Fold a piece of white A4 card in half, portrait style and onto this matt a piece of lavender paper, leaving a quarter inch border of the white base card showing.
Using a piece of heatproof acetate, just slight;y larger than the stamp, colour one side of it with the alcohol inks, using a blending tool.
When dry, which only takes a few seconds, stamp the ballroom dancers onto the un-inked side, using a Versamark pad, then heat emboss with Imagination Craft's detail silver embossing powder.
Trim around the image, leaving a small border of the inked edge showing and matt onto a slightly larger piece of white card. Punch 4 small holes, one in each corner and fix a silver brad in each hole. Matt this onto the base card, on an angle. One little tip here lol, if you trim right up to the edge of the silver embossing, if may chip off so best to leave a small edge beyond the embossed edge.
Die-cut 3 flowers using the Spellbinder's die and paint them with the Starlight paints, adding a little pearl Starlight paint on top of the flowers, to 'tone down. the deepness of the amethyst and bright fuschia Starlight paints.
Paint the die-cut flourish and leaves with the Menthol paint. Glue a small Dazzler to each flower centre.
Glue a white feather, the flowers, leaves and the flourish to the bottom of the card, using Magi-bond glue.
Well that's this card finished, I do hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by my blog, I do love to share my creations with you all. Hope this may give you some inspiration when making your cards and if you are not a card maker, I would like to think this may encourage you to take up this relaxing hobby.
Take care of yourselves, have a great weekend and I'll be back again with more creations very soon.
Love and rainbows,
Happy crafting, Hugs Jennifer xx.
