Two cards for your from our 2 Natalies

ENJOY ... By Nat G



PRODUCTS USED FROM J&C CREATIONS -
PB 'Letter Background' 1999L Stamp
PB 'Enjoy' T-Set 30-024
Tim Holtz Summer Distress Ltd Edition Set - Salty Ocean
Tim Holtz Distress Markers - Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed & Barn Door
OTHER PRODUCTS USED -
Paper Flowers by Prima & Wild Orchid Crafts
Dew Drops
3D Gloss
METHOD -
Trim some black cardstock to fit your card blank and repeat with white to fit the black.
Stamp 3 butterflies in an arrangement that you like and repeat onto some spare cardstock. Trim the butterflies from the spare piece and place on top of the ones that are on your card. By placing another butterfly on top of some you've already stamped allows you to use the technique of Masking.
Ink up the script stamp and place in the centre of your card, when you take the stamp away and remove the cut out butterflies you will see that the background stamp has avoided stamping over your butterflies!
Repeat this process next by pressing down the 'Salty Ocean' Ink Pad from the Summer Ltd Edition set instead of a stamp.
Colour in your butterflies using Distress Markers.
Stamp the 'enjoy...' stamp from the T-Set in the top left corner of your card.
Embellish your card using an assortment of flowers in the bottom right colour in colours related to those you have used on your butterflies then add some dew drops.
Finish your card by highlighting your butterflies with 3D Gloss!

 

 

Sensational Birthday by Nat B


I love this Penny Black stamp, I just have to smile when I look at the animals having a ball, or perhaps it's the cow toting her cowhide handbag, lol!

Stamp - ‘The Sensations’ – Penny Black

Colouring medium – Promarkers

Black card
Green checked paper – Craft Creations
White Flower – Prima
Pearls – The Hobby House
Fleur de Lis Rectangles and Labels 2 cut using Spellbinders dies
Ribbon, paper rose

Available at J & C Creations

Mount a square of green checked paper onto black card. Attach a length of ribbon and secure on reverse and then glue onto your card blank. Mount your coloured image onto the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis rectangle and stick onto your card using 3d foam. Stamp the sentiment onto white card and cut out using a Spellbinders Labels 2 die. Mount this onto black card cut using the next size up die. (I trimmed the black label down as I thought the border was too large) and stick at an angle using 3d foam. Decorate with pearls, flower and bow.
