We certainly had some fun playing with the Embossing paste on Friday. As you can see quiet an assembly line happening. Two Big Shots, 1 Cuttle bug, 1 Embossing station and a water bath for cleaning. Thank goodness we had the big room.
As usual not a full crew but just as well with all the cutting and drying needed. In Whisper White:- 1 large Flower, 3 Branches, 3 Small flowers, 3 Medium flowers, 2 Autumn leaves. In Basic Black:- 2 Autumn Leaves, all from the Seasonal layers Thinlit Dies. The largest flower is from the retired Botanical Builder but I will still be using it for a long time, that’s for sure.
We didn’t experiment with colours but just practiced with the embossing paste for today. Colouring later!
Irma added a sentiment, the original didn’t have a sentiment, and used some coloured diamenties to highlight her card. The largest flower is from the retired Botanical Builder but I will still be using it for sure.
Every one managed to create a finished card despite dealing with a new technique!
Well done ladies.
The days have been a bit cold here. Down to 21 Degrees. I know for people in really cold places, Canada, some of USA, Europe that is laughable but for us it’s nippy, jumper time for the locals.
What better way to add to our warmth than by creating a card that says just that. At this point I have no idea who came up with the first jumper/cardigan using the Cable Knit Dynamic EF as there are lots of images on Pinterest etc. Enough to say thanks to all those who have created with this folder.
Now my girls were spoilt as they had a choice, a male or female and surprise surprise more males chosen than females.
Relatively simple card but very effective. We used Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Fresh Fig CS for the jumper and Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Fresh Florals DSP for the Cardigan.
The Pink Piroutte was embossed then marked at the center and a V taken out of the neck and lined with a Delicate White Doily cut to fit. Unfortunately the crimping tool is no longer available but that’s what was used for the band in Very Vanilla. Happy birthday from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous SS was stamped onto Very Vanilla then cut using the the Sweet and Sassy framelits. A circle was cut at the neck of the folded base card before the Embossed front was adhered. The flowers were in Fresh fig using the flowers from The Bloomin Heart Thinlits. Some pretty pearls completed the jumper.
The cardigan was a little more fiddly as the DSP was adhered to the center of the base card WW before cutting a neck circle. After embossing the Crumb Cake it was cut in half, pieces put together back to back , then a large triangle from the bottom and a smaller triangle taken out of the top. When opened out this formed the front of the cardigan. This was adhered to the DSP and again using the paper crimper, bands were added.
A small pocket was made with a tiny handkerchief popping out. Using the Badges and Banners SS, the sentiment was stamped on WW and punched with the Duet Banner punch. The final addition of a button completed the card. It was threaded with some twine or in a very small sliver of paper.
Enjoy till next time
