Pretty In… Green!

I know but I did add a little Pink to my card! Tee hee.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I coloured this image in ages ago, but thankfully I do still know which colours I used.

I decided to use her for this card, which I created so that I could play along in the Wednesday Sketch Group over on the Outlawz.

The sketch I followed is this one.

Of course I’m DT on the Friday Colouring Group so I am playing along just for fun.

Good Luck!

Happy Hump Day Everyone!!!

Yes it’s the middle of the working week already and so I thought I would celebrate by

doing a little tutorial for you all! Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

I thought I would show you how to create this lovely little window card – Using just your Big Stitched Rectangles Dies & Blossom Rubber Stamp from CC Designs.

First of all you need to stamp and colour in your image.

Then you want to take an A4 piece of card.

(For mine I chose 320gsm Hammer Card.  I love the texture and sturdiness so much!)

STEP ONE.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

STEP TWO.

Once you have done the above, open your card out flat and run through your cutting and embossing machine as you normally would.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This is what you should have so far.

Pop your small rectangle piece off to one side for now, you will need this later on.

STEP THREE.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

(Sorry that should say piece!)

STEP FOUR.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Put your two dies on your 2nd piece of card through your machine.

STEP FIVE.

Now take your coloured image and, using one of the smaller dies, cut out your image.

You should now be looking like this.

STEP SIX.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

STEP SEVEN.

Next, stick your image to the smaller stitched rectangle.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

STEP EIGHT.

Now adhere your thicker frame around both your image & the stitched rectangle.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Now you should be looking like this.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Next, take your ribbon of choice.

Cut one piece at 5 inches long, and one piece at 4 inches long.

Cut at the bottom to get the “V’s”.

Now turn your card over, and stick the top one inch of ribbon to your card back.  One on each side like I have.

Then add your last (largest stitched rectangle) on top.

This will be where you write your sentiment/message etc.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Turn your card over and stick your pearls to the front.

This is your finished card! Smiles.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Isn’t Blossom just the sweetest little thing?!

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the inside of the card.

To bring Blossom to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skin.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hair.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Ground.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Socks & Shoes. (E23 & 25 on the shoes only.)

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skirt.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Top.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Ribbon.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Flower.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Pearls are from my stash.

As is the ribbon I used.

They are perfect!!  Grins.

Is It Spring Yet????

Teehee.. I wish it was spring already.

Not long until spring though, and that is a nice thought!

All yellows and oranges, and spring blooms!!  Big smiles.
