Sues First Tutorial

Today sees a new challenge on the J & C Creations Challenge Blog, this month we have the Theme of Animal Antics, do pop over and see the fabulous creations from the DT.


We had a new Design Team Member join us in the last month and this is Sue's first tutorial, which I hope you agree is fabulous and something really different


Simple Afternoon flowers

Sue O'Connell

This card incorporates a very old technique with alcohol inks being dropped onto glossy card and immediately sprayed with air in a can making it spread about the page.  A fun way to make your

own background papers.

Items used:

White cardstock 10 cm wide and full length of an A4 sheet.

Alcohol inks in lettuce, butterscotch and sunshine yellow.

Versafine Ink in Black

1 large button

Flower made with a flower loom and wool

Background paper and card

Happy Birthday Stamp

Penny Black stamp- An afternoon 3877K 

1. Cut the white cardstock as above.

2. Use the alcohol ink technique as stated above.

3. Stamp 'an afternoon' with versafine onto the splodgy glossy cardstock.  I always use a mat underneath as a cushion to get the best stamping outline (a piece of funky foam or a computer mat would do).

4. Cut this out and mount onto background paper and card.

5. Make a flower from wool ( mine was 50p for a ball in a charity shop).  The flower loom looks like this and you can make different sizes from different materials). Pop a large button in the middle.  Glue onto the front of the card.

6. Stamp out happy birthday, matt it and put this onto 3d foam.  Attach to the base of the card to stop the easel slipping down.
