Hello again crafty people! I’m back with my second blog post today…. well it’s actually my third as my guest post is up over at The Paper Tree tutorial blog! I was very kindly gifted the Penguin Agenda stamp set by Jeni over at The Paper Tree. This is such a cute stamp set and it’s even on special offer at the moment!
I loved the phone theme in the stamps so for this project I made a cute little mobile phone embellishment. I used black centura card (5 x 8 cm) and white card (4 x 6.5 cm) with the corners rounded. I added a small silver circle. I blended some lucky clover distress ink through a circle stencil before adding one of the wee party penguins on a 3d sticky pad. The sentiment is in the set.
I masked a stripe along my card base and blended some distress oxides (twisted citron, cracked pistachio, lucky clover, peacock feathers, salty ocean and blueprint sketch). I also blended some lucky clover on a piece of scrap card to add make a mat for the sentiment. The finishing touch is a few Nuvo jewel drops in key lime, aqua plains and steel blue.
I hope you like my penguin phone, I got a little addicted and made a few more, which I’m sharing over on instagram today. Check out my project for The Paper Tree on their blog.
Hi crafty people, I hope you are all doing ok during these troubling times. I don’t really want to talk about everything going on but I am trying my best to listen to the black people and learn from their experiences about how I can be a better supporter to help change happen.
Anyway I’m back with my second blog post in a day which is unusal for me, but I have a very good reason! I am delighted to share that for the month of June I am a guest design team member for the Little Paper Tree .
Today over on their blog my first post is up, so you can head over there to see one of my projects. I am here to share another fun card using the stamp set the kindly gifted me which is Stand Tall by Catherine Pooler Designs.
For this card I started by making an inky background using some distress oxides and distress inks. I used one of the stamps in the set to build up some reeds around the water which I think started to add some dimension.
I stamped both of the flamingos in archive black ink and coloured them with picked raspberry distress ink and a waterbrush before fussy cutting them out. I added some ripples to the water with another stamp in the set and popped the flamingos into the scene. I added some layers behind the scene and then glued it onto a card base which I had folded to create an easel card.
Inside the card I stamped the zig zag line using picked raspberry distress oxide. The sentiment was also stamped in this ink before adding some mats and layers and popped up on 3d pads.
I hope you like my card today and that you will check out my guest post at The Little Paper Tree blog today. There will be a few more designs with this set over at my instagram too.
