Good evening All,
Hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend, despite the dull dreary weather today. I watched all of the Imagination Craft's shows on Hochanda T.V. this weekend but unfortunately we lost the T.V. signal, so I could not watch the lunchtime show - most frustrating! Brilliant shows and Mandy did so well on her first shows as a guest presenter for Imagination Crafts. Congratulations if you managed to purchase any of the products, wow! they sold out so....quickly, not really surprised I have to say! such fabulous, innovative products. Well onto tonight's card which was shown on the shows. I have used the very pretty Meadow Flower stencil and Starlight paints. I have also used the Tim Holtz corner die, which I love and I find it a very useful die. This is a very quick and easy card to make.
I used a 7"x7" white base card and I began by matting a smaller piece of maroon card onto the base card. Next I matted a piece of blue card, slightly smaller than the maroon, onto the maroon matt.
Next, cut a slightly smaller piece of white card and lay the meadow flower stencil onto the left-hand side of the card. Using a stencil brush, stipple the lilac blue and the bright maroon Starlight paints through the flower, leaves and stem. Remove the stencil.
Cut a triangular shape from the right-hand side of this card.
Take the Tim Holtz corner die and cut out the 'crazy paving' corner from blue card and glue it to the back of the white card, where the triangular cut out is.
Matt this onto the maroon matt on the base card.
Glue three blue pearls to the top right of the triangular shape and three to the bottom right corner.
Lastly, glue a blue ribbon bow to the point of the triangular shape.
Well, there we have it, one finished card. I have to say, I was quietly pleased with the end results, hope you like it too. Enjoy the rest of your week. I will be back soon, until then, be happy and keep smiling.
Love and rainbows,
Hugs Jennifer xx.
