CUP Designer – Michelle Johnson

Today I’ve decided to highlight some of the cards I’ve made using designs put up on CUP by Michelle Johnson. I’ve made cards with several of her designs and have picked five cards using six different sheets from CUP to show off this time.

  1. Easter lamb step by step (The main image layer is in the shape of an egg, with the bottom of some of the added layers also following the bottom curve of the egg, but this design does include some fiddly cutting out around the ears, etc., so was one of my “good day” cutting out projects.)
  2. Peek-a-boo Easter chick step by step (Although also a decoupage design this one is slightly easier to cut out because of the nature of the pieces.  This card could be used for occasions other than Easter, such as the birthday of a child who’s been watching chicks hatch on a family farm for instance.)
  3. Cartoon astronaut 2 quick card front with decoupage (This card also has extra pieces you can decoupage on but the pieces are chunkier and easier to cut out.  This is a great card for a child.)
  4. Parrot quick card front with pyramage (A totally different style and image type to the previous three.  Pyramage are one of the easiest types of cards with dimension to make up and as this design sheet includes the whole card front it looks as if you’ve already put some matching backing paper and a frame on your card.)
  5. Blue butterfly vellum and Blue butterfly step by step topper (I used two sheets in a matching design to make this card.  The vellum backing being a nice background on which to put the topper.  The topper sheet has three different greetings on the central oval panel as well as the blank one I used.  The most fiddly bits to cut out for me were the little corner butterflies.)

On looking at Michelle’s latest uploads to CUP I can see that she’s got a wide variety of subject matter, styles of images and types of cards available.
