How many of you said yes, well your right its the card on the front page of the new 2011 – 2012 Catalogue. Isn’t it just stunning, and you wouldn’t believe how many techniques and bits are on it. First there is basic stamping on cardstock, then there is embossing but before this we stamped on the card with two stamps randomly and tore around the oval. To get the best results for tearing try wetting the edges you would like to tear first. For the butterfly we stamped the main image on Whisper white and stamped over it with a sentiment, the edges are then sponged on both the oval and the butterfly. We cut out two butterflies and layered them with dimensionals. The flower on the butterfly has a Faux Suede effect by rubbing the cardstock to make the edges peel apart. Both pieces of the DSP have been torn also. The ribbon has a brad over the top to hold it in place, and all this with only one stamp set, yes that’s right it’s called Creative Elements.
For the second card, we made this stunning Christmas card designed by the lovely Bron Heslop. This stamp set is so versatile and can be used for many occasions. I have used the embossing folder Petals a plenty, and the ribbon is the new Scallop Dots Ribbon. Keep Pennant Parade in mind if you want a real versatile stamp set.
A big thanks to Jacque for teaching us both of these cards.
