For October the theme is : ANYTHING GOES

.

As the theme this month is “ANYTHING GOES” I decided to use a scrapbooking kit, but used elements from it to make a card and a matching gift.

“Penblwydd Hapus Iawn” is Welsh for “A Very Happy Birthday”

“Nodiadau” is Welsh for “Notes”

Method:

For both of these I took elements from the kit into the My Craft Studio software and resized, moved around, etc., until I had the layout I wanted for the front of a DL birthday card.  I then copied the layout beneath it and changed the wording on the second copy.  I put a second copy of the panel on the right of the card, together with further copies of the little embelishments at two different sizes, to fill up the rest of the page.  The design was then printed out and cut out.  I went over the extra panel with the clear glaze pen a couple of times and then left it to dry while I scored, folded and trimmed on of the sheets of cardstock to make the base card and one to make a cover for my gift.  I scored to put a 1cm spine on the gift.  I used fingerlift tape to attach the fronts to both, ans well as to attach the Stick-it notepad and stamp book inside the gift.  I used twisted bakers twine a little piece of cardstock and some ultra tacky tape to create a loop to attach the pen.  Once the panel was dry I attached that to the front of my card using foam tape.  I then added the extra elements, shaping them a bit and attaching using glue gel.

Inspiration For “Dragons Lair Design” September Challenge

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card

-oOo-

Today a new challenge starts on the “Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog“.

There’s been a bit of a face-lift and a change of name – What use to be called “Stampin’ Dragon Designs Challenge Blog” is now “Dragons Lair Designs Challenge Blog” so that the name “Dragons Lair Designs” runs through all of the sister sites – be it the store, challenge blog, inspiration blog, etc.

PrizeDLD CB_BadgeSo – each ”Dragons Laire Designs Challenge Blog” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters.  The winner this month gets a prize of The Coffee Cream paper pack from DLD, as well as a badge for their blog, and the winning entry will also be highlighted on the challenge blog the following month. Although we’d love to see Dragons Lair Designs items on your creation, you may ENTER the challenge using ANY MATERIAL you wish as long as you clearly follow the set theme. You may enter the challenge with only 1 entry per month. So why not consider joining in with us this month – go to the challenge blog and have a look at the rules and the inspiration created by my fellow Design Team members.

For September the theme is : ANYTHING BUT A CARD

.

PROJECT:

I’ve chosen three fairies from the store for my project and decorated a small, tripple frame, wall hanging to hold them.  Although the fairies look very similar, especially when coloured up in the same colour scheme, they are not the same fairy in different poses, as you will spot if you look carefully at their wing size and shape.

Part of the “little extra fun” we had on the Stamping Dragon Designs Facebook Group a few months ago was some fun activities to name the two bottom fairies.  By some strange quirk of fate, both their names started with ‘A’, one with a Welsh name and one with an English name, so I suggested to my young nephews, who gave a list of suggestions for the group members to vote on for the Welsh name, that they should choose a name starting with an ‘A’ for the top fairy.

FairyHanger 03

Thumbnail photos of some different areas/angles of this card. Hopefully you can see the sparkle on areas of the fairies.

This fairy in the top frame has now been named Azelize.

FairyHanger 04

This sitting fairy in the middle frame has now been named Anwen Seren Elen
(a big name for such a little fairy but the three names had the same number of votes).

FairyHanger 05

This kneeling fairy in the bottom frame was named Amelia, the nephews choosing their favourite from a list of sugestions that members of the SDD FB group came up with.

FairyHanger 07

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

Firstly I measured the aperture of the frames, which is 4 centimeters, and then I printed each image out at a size that would fit into the frames.  As the images were so small I had to add a fine nib to each of my ProMarkers to colour in the digi-stamps (Note to self – next time you do a dinky little project like this – choose some pre-coloured images to use or buy larger frames – the areas to colour are tiny at this size and very difficult to do, even on my best days.  That’s not to say that others without dexterity issues would have a problem of course.)  I used the acetate front of the frames to put over the image to position them properly and drew a line around and cut them out the correct size for the frame.

I then painted the frames using white acrylic paint.  After it was dry I mixed a small amount of blue into white and dry brushed it over some areas.  I then painted on some green swirls, and put in the three images.  I then used my ScanNCut to cut out some flowers to decorate the frames, sticking these on using glue gel.  I coloured the clear gems with two of the ProMarkers I’d used on the image to put in the centre.  I finished off by tying some of the embroydery floss to the joining rings, breaking the groups of six appart to give a fluffier look.

Inspiration For “Stampin’ with the Dragon” August Challenge

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.

Today a new challenge starts on the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.

New July 2014 - Challenge TeamPrizeEach ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters. The winner gets a kit, full of papers and digital elements, from the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

For August the theme is : SAND, SEA & SUN

.

CARD

As the theme this month is “SAND, SEA & SUN” I had to pick a digi of one of the fun loving dragons on the beach.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

I printed out the digi-stamp twice at smaller than the size required.  I then extended the palm tree on the right outside the box a bit on one of the images before colouring in the images using my ProMarkers, only colouring the palm tree and ball, plus the bucket and spade on the second copy. The first image was cut out as a rectangle and the corners rounded with a punch while the coloured in elements were cut out of the second copy.  Having measured the main image I used my ScanNCut to cut out mats to go behind it as well as waves and the sun (using cutting files inbuilt into the machine). I stuck the waves, overlapping each other, onto the base card and used the white gel pen to give white tips to the waves. I stuck on the sun layers.  I then matted and layered the coloured in digi-stamp and attached it to the card front.  I used glue gel to attach the cut out pieces of the digi-stamp to give some dimension to the card. I used one of the brown ProMarkers I’d used on the image to put a dotted line around the outside of the card.

Inspiration For “Stampin’ with the Dragon” July Challenge

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog.
Design Team Card

-oOo-

Today a new challenge starts on the “Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.

New July 2014 - Challenge TeamNew July 2014 - Gift VoucherEach ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” challenge goes live the first Friday of the month with a new theme each time. The winner will get picked by “Random” so that it is fair for all levels of crafters. The winner gets a voucher for £5.00 to spend in the Stamping Dragon Designs store.

You can enter as many times as you want but there MUST use something Stamping Dragon Designs used within ALL entry projects. If you don’t have anything designed by Janette Padley of Stamping Dragon Design in your digital library – never fear – there’s an album of freebies available to members of the Stamping Dragon Design Facebook Group – so just request to join and you’ll have access to the freebies that can be used on your entry project.  So why not consider joining in with us this month.

For July the theme is : Easel Card

.

CARD

As the theme this month is “Easel Card” I couldn’t resist going the whole hog and making a “Tripple Easel Card”.  But even though I’ve chosen 3 digi-stamps from the store to put on the card, I’ve only used 4 different ProMarkers to colour them in.  I hope that this will inspire those of you who have a limited number of any alcohol markers to jump in and have a go at colouring in digi-stamps.  And also show those of you who are reticent to buy any digi-stamps because you think you need to buy dozens of alcohol markers, before you can colour in anything, that just getting a small number can get you started – but of course you can colour in digi-stamps with other mediums as well, so don’t think it has to be alcohol markers.

Equipment:

Method:

You’ll notice that the whole card, including the coloured in digi-stamp toppers and floral embelishments, were all made from 2 sheets of card for printing and two sheets of card for construction.

I took my Hougie Board and scored one sheet along all the lines as shown here:

Wedding Easel card 10I then cut along the solid lines and folded and burnished at each of the dotted lines.

I scored the 2nd sheet as shown here:

Wedding Easel card 11I then cut at each of the solid lines to give me three panels of exactly the same size as the front of my card – the long strip left over wasn’t needed for the card.

I took backgrounds from the kit into one of my graphics packages and re-sized them so that they were smaller than the panels that would form the front of my easel card.  I then took each of my chosen digi-stamps into the same page in the graphics programme and re-sized them to a suitable size to sit comfortably on the panels.  I also took in a floral element and a paper ribbon from the kit and re-sized them.  All these elements were spaced out over one A4 working area before printing them out.  I again re-sized the background panels so that they joined together to make the larger panel for the inside back of my card and printed this out onto the other A4 card.  I used the roller glue pen to attach the cardstock panels to the easel front, making sure to only glue on the bottom halves so that they would lift up.  I attached the background panels to these, making sure that the two outside panels were facing inwards towards the centre so that they would sit right when lifted to the easel position.  I colured in my digi-stamps – going over some areas a second or third time with the same pen to build up colour dept to give a little dimension to the characters.  I was having a good day when I made this card and decided to cut out all the characters, leaving just a fine white border of cardstock around them to give a little lift against the background.  I shaped them a bit and used glue gel to attach them to the easel fronts.  I then used foam tape to attach the paper ribbon, onto which I’d written “On Your Wedding Day”.  I used the same tape to attach the little floral elements I’d cut out, two on the base as stoppers for the two sid easels, and the rest as embelishments around the card.

Crafting In The Second Half Of June 2014

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
An Update, A Few Cards and Other Crafting

-oOo-

I’ve done too much!  I admit it.  With my health/disability issues it was highly stupid of me to spend over an hour out in the garden Thursday afternoon.  I usually do a stint of around 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening out in the garden, sitting down and puttering in the greenhouse or sat at my raised bed, strawberry tower or potato sacks – but I decided to sit outside and try and clear some of the brambles from around the greenhouse, cutting and moving some and then moving my chair forward.  As rain was on the way I decided to keep going for a bit as I knew I wouldn’t be able to work out there at my usual time of puttering in the evening.  So now I’m in rather a lot of pain with the M.E. symptoms being quite bad.  Now I remember why I only putter for 20 minutes before coming back in and resting in bed!

So today I’ve only been out to do the necesary of feeding and letting our dog out to her large enclosure in the garden as well as watering the greenhouse, and again in the evening to water again and give our dog her treats and tickles before she was put to bed for the night.  No gardening, and very little else.

What I did do was make a small number of Christmas cards from toppers I got in a Hunkydory kit, and also put together some digital card fronts and scrapbook layouts.  All sat in bed trying to move slowly and not jar screaming muscles.  Hopefully we’ll have some better weather and some sunlight tomorrow so that I can photograph what I’ve made today.  In the meantime I’ve got a few items I put together earlier in the week to show you.  I hope you like them.

.

DESIGN TEAM CALL:

ChallengeAdvertisingBadgeI just thought I’d give you a quick reminder that there’s a Design Team Call currently going on for the “Stampin with the Dragon” challenge blog.  All sorts and levels of crafters are being invited to apply.  The call runs until the 30th June and you can get the details by clicking -> Here!

  1. Milking time on the farm by Angela Wake and Cow Backing Paper by Apetroae Stefan (I printed the sheet out onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock.  I then cut out the pieces.  I printed the background at half size onto 120gsm good quality white paper.  My base card is an A4 sheet of hammered white card scored using my Hougie Board and folded in half to make an A5 base card.  I cut a panel of the background which I matted onto a piece of green Adorable Scorable cardstock.  I used finger-lift tape to attach the matted background panel and the base of this milking time image to the front of the card.  I then used glue gel to attach the layers, which I shaped a bit with my fingers before adding.  I wrote on the greeting “Penblwydd Hapus” – which is Welsh for “Happy Birthday”.)
  2. Angled view of the decoupage on the card.
  3. Cow Insert by Apetroae Stefan (I printed the insert onto 120gsm good quality white paper.  The insert was trimmed, scored with my Hougie Board and stuck inside my base card shown previously using finger-lift tape.)

  1. Past & Present Paper Pack by Janette Padley (I printed one of the sheets from the pack onto 120gsm white paper and cut out a panel.  The base card is a 7″ x 10″ kraft card from my crafting stash.  The other elements on the card are mostly from the last free Create & Craft Club gift.  I used a Wallnut ProMarker to go around some panels and to put a dashed lines to others.  I also used some bakers twine and some gold Card Candi.   I used finger-lift tape, 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape, and glue gel to stick everything together.)
  2. Angled view of the card front.

  1. Openwork Card *SVG* by Rae Carr and 138 Layered Flowers *SVG* by Rae Carr (I took the cutting file files into the online Canvas software and downloaded to my USB stick for cutting out using my Brother ScanNCut machine.  I cut the base card out of 300gsm hammered white cardstock.  I also cut out one of the flowers several times at different sizes from blingelicious red cardstock.  I took some red satin board and cut paper ribbons which I weaved through the side panels and stuck one piece behind the cut out centre panel.  I then embelished the card with several layers of the flower glued together with glue gel.  I’ve not added a greeting panel yet as I don’t know what language the card will be needed in.)

  1. Night Bloom Mini Theme by Janette Padley (I took several elements and backgrounds from this kit, together with two photographs of the inside of my glasshouse taken some 8 days appart, into one of my graphics packages. I then resized, rotated, digitally cropped and punched, until I was happy with the layout for an 8″ square digital scrapbook page. I saved this as a digital page and also printed it out to show to other family members.)

JEWELLERY:

This one was made for one of my brothers-in-law – this one doesn’t work on a farm (he’s a London cabbie) so the youngest nephews decided that his bracelet didn’t need smelly bands in his bracelet.

1ElasticBracelet 11 04 2ElasticBracelet 11 02 3ElasticBracelet 11 03

  1. This bracelet is made with black elastic loom bands interspaced with an assortment of random coloured bands that have white spots on.
  2. A different angled view of the whole bracelet.
  3. A closer look at the fishtail detail of the bracelet.

This one is for my youngest sister, again not one of the family members who does a “dirty and smelly” job – she’s a teacher – so no need for nice smelling elastic bands.  This sister likes purple so her bracelet had to be made of purple bands and beads.

  1. This bracelet is a double string of fishtail pattern elastic loom bracelets, joined at both ends into single strands and continuged in the fishtail pattern until the bracelet was large enough and finished off with an S clip.  The double braid section was joined using jump rings with a small purple wooden bead on each.
  2. Different angled view of the bracelet.
  3. View of the beads attached to both fishtail braided bracelets with jump rings.

CARD

I have gone very “Clean and Simple” with my inspiration card this time, using one image, some lines and a greeting drawn using a pen in my Brother ScanNCut machine, and five little sticky back gems from my crafting stash.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

I printed the image out at smaller than the size provided and then coloured it in.  After colouring the wings I went over them with the clear Wink of Stella but used the Violet Wink of Stela as it was on parts of her clothing.  I took a sheet of linen textured cardstock and put it through my ScanNCut machine to draw on the frame and greeting in the relevant place before scoreing it.  I also put the sheet with the coloured in digi into my ScanNCut and background scanned it (without any saving being involved) to get the location of the image before drawing the same shape around it and cutting it out with a border of 2mm.  It was then simply a case of attaching the created topper to the card front and sticking on the little gems.

CARDS

For today’s challenge inspiration I simply couldn’t decide whether to go all digital or whether to go for a more paper based creation – so I made one of both.  One was quite quick to make from finish to end, just to show that you can use Stamping Dragon Designs items to make quick cards if you want.  The other had more work both in cutting out and in constructing with added embelishments, just to show that you can take digital elements, print them out, and craft with them as if you’d bought a paper kit.  I hope you like them.

Card 1

For this one I designed the whole layout digitally, printed it, scored it, and folded it, for a quick A5 card. I even decorated the back a bit before printing.

Spring Feaver Elements card02 02

This is what the back of the card looks like, and the design of the insert I put inside.

Spring Feaver Elements card02 03   Spring Fever Elements - card01Ins

Card 2

For this one I pulled in lots of elements into my graphics package and re-sized to make them all suitable for the card size I wanted, and built up a background by tiling an element, before printing out, cutting, and constructing my card and building up decoupage layers on the main image.

Spring Feaver Elements card01 03

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

Card 1:

For this card I took elements of the kit into one of my graphics packages and moved, resized, copied, etc., until I had a complete card layout that I liked, both card front and back. This was then printed out onto glossy cardstock, scored and folded to make a card.  I also designed an insert from the same elements, printed it onto paper, trimmed, folded and attached it inside the card using finger-lift tape.  A simple – click, print and score – card that took less than 15 minutes to make.

As well as kits like this that can be used to make quick, but unique, cards when time is short, you will also find coloured in digi-stamps in the store that can also be used to make quick cards – it’s always handy to have bought a few that will suit several occasions and keep them in your digital library so that you have some ready for when you need that card in a hurry.

Card 2:

For this card I also took elements from the kit into one of my graphics packages, but this time I tiled one element to make a background, resized and overlapped elements to make a topper with extra layers for decoupage, etc..  These were layed out over my screen working area and printed onto Super Smooth cardstock.  I then cut out all the individual pieces.  I went round the edge of both the base card and the background mat with a ProMarker.  I also punched the corners of the background pat with a star corner punch – the two pieces of paper ribbon were tucked behind these to show through.  I then took the pieces, along with various embelishments, and attached them all together to make my card, giving dimension to some pieces and attaching others flat.

More April 2014 Crafting And Some Stamping Dragon Designs News

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
An Update, Some Information About The Stamping Dragon Designs Facebook Group, And Some Cards

-oOo-

 Well the hole from the tooth I had extracted by the dental surgeon at the clinic last week appears to be healing well, and I’ve slept a bit better the last couple of nights as well.  It’s funny how some pain I can practically ignore during the day became so much more anoying during the night, especially if I turned over onto the side that the extraction was on.  I’m hopeing I’ll be able to catch up on my sleep a bit now and not feel quite so exhausted, though of course my M.E. does tend to make me over-tired all the time in any case.

I have done a bit of crafting finished cards during the week, though nothing too complicated or ornate.  I’ve also done quite a bit of colouring in of digi-stamps in the night when I couldn’t get to sleep, or couldn’t get back to sleep after turning over onto the sore side.  I’ve not made these coloured digi-stamps into cards yet, so keep an eye out in future posts for some of those to appear, but in the meantime I’ll show you some of what I have completed.

STAMPING DRAGON DESIGNS FACEBOOK GROUP:

SDDheaderFrom my posts on the 4th and the 7th you’ll now know that there have been some changes in the land of the “Stamping Dragon”.

In addition to already being on the Design Team for “The Dragons Den” – which is the inspiration and information blog of “Stamping Dragon Designs“, I’ve now joined the team that put inspiration pieces on the  ”Stampin’ with the Dragon” Challenge Blog.  (Don’t forget to pop over and enter as you can make one entry without using any SDD product, though you do need to use an SDD product if you want to make a second entry – and you have a chance of winning a £5 voucher to spend in the store – which is well worth a visit and a browse around because of the variety of digital downloads availabe.)

* But what I’ve want to tell you about today is the “Stamping Dragon Designs” Facebook Group – which you can go to by clicking -> Here!

With a lively group of “Dragonettes”, the group has an assortment of challenges and activities, in addition to having a chance to show off our projects made using SDD products, and the occasional sillyness and passing around of virtual cake (much less fattening than the real thing).  There’s even an album in the group where our “Dragon Queen”, Janette Padley, drops in some freebies that are only free for group members.

StampingDragonShopBadgeThe really good thing is that there is a “Loyalty Points Scheme” – Taking part in challenges and activities gets you loyalty points – plus there are often chances to win a free digi-stamp for one winner.  Once you have gathered 30 points, you will receive a free voucher for £3 to the SDD store.

Yes – I really did use the word FREE a few times in the last two paragraphs – and I know you all love FREE!  So please do consider clicking over to the group and putting in a request to join.

As an example of some activities and challenges running at the moment:

SittingFairyI’m running a “little extra fun” event to name one of the fairies that appear in some SDD digi-stamps and kits.  There’s a list of suggested names (as well as a link to a page with sound files where each of the names is spoken).  Everybody who writes their choice of name for the “Sitting Fairy”, from the list of names given, as a comment to the thread in the group, will get 1 loyalty point. From those who picked the most popular name Random will pick one of those who chose that name to receive 1 free digi-stamp!  This activity will run until the end of day 14-4-14.

There’s also a monthly “colouring” challenge.  At any point during the month you can request that month’s free digital file.  This is usally a digi-stamp, but this month it’s a pre-coloured element from the hugely popular “Home Tweet Home” range.  All you have to do with this free image is to create a project and upload a photograph before the end of the month.  Of course there’s a loyalty point for taking part and again a free digi-stamp for a randomly chosen winner.

So what are all you lovely crafters waiting for – come join us -> Here!

  1. Male Nurse Dude by Gordon Fraser (I printed the sheet onto 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock and cut out the pieces.  I went round the outside edge of the base layer with a blue ProMarker before sticking it to the front of a white, linen textured, A5 base card.  I attached the blank greetings panel to the top left of the card using 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape.  I gently shaped the decoupage layers with my fingers before attaching them all in order using glue gel.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what lanaguage it will be needed in.)
  2. Angled view of previous card to try and show the rounded dimension of the decoupage.
  3. Male Nurse Dude Insert by Gordon Fraser (The sheet was printed onto 120gsm, good quality, white paper.  I then trimmed it, scored it and attached it inside the previous card using finger-lift tape.)

  1. Canoe/Kayak Dude (Red) Decoupage Sheet by Gordon Fraser and Waves Scene by Gordon Fraser (I printed both sheets out at half size onto 250gsm, Super Smooth, white cardstock.  Both sheets were cut out, with the scene being trimmed to shorter than provided before being matted and layered onto a silver, holographic, paper using finger-lift tape.  I took an 8″ square, white, Crafty Bob card and stuck a layer of the same holographic paper to that before adding a layer of textured, pearlescent, cardstock from my crafting stash.  I gently shaped the layers of this decoupage before building up on my card using glue gel.  I’ve not added a greeting yet as I don’t know what occasion or language the card will be needed in.)
  2. Angled view of previous card to try and show some of the dimension.

  1. Tree Sillohette by Janette Padley and Mini Dude Witch Decoupage Sheet by Gordon Fraser (I printed both the tree and decoupage out onto sheets of 250gsm, Super Smooth, white cardstock at half size.  I then used a Circle Scissors to cout out the tree topper.  I took a silver Wink of Stella brush pen and went round the edge of the circle and also went over the edges of the branches to give it a twinkle.  I took an 8″ square, white, Crafty Bob card and attached a panel of black cardstock using finger-lift tape, and then attached the circle topper using 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape.  I went around the outside of the card with the Wink of Stella pen to add dots all the way around, and also over the black cardstock to add groups of sparkling dots.  I finished off by cutting, shapeing and attaching the decoupage layers using glue gel.)

  1. Fairy Acantha Cream Mini Gift Bag by Gordon Fraser (This card is made using elements left over from the sheets used to create the bag in the next section.  I just took a sheet of cream, hammered, cardstock and trimmed, scored it using a Hougie Board, and folded it, to make a little card.  I used 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape to attach the greetings panel and the circular topper, and glue gel to attach the side elements.  I’ve not put on a greeting yet as I don’t know what language it will be needed in.)
  2. Angled view of previous card.

BAG:

Perfect for giving a small gift that’s an odd shape to wrap.

1cup402951_437 - card01 - Fairy Acantha Cream Mini Gift Bag 2cup402951_437 - card04 - Fairy Acantha Cream Mini Gift Bag

  1. Fairy Acantha Cream Mini Gift Bag by Gordon Fraser (I printed the sheet out twice onto 300gsm Super Smooth white cardstock, choosing this weight card because I wanted a sturdy bag.  After cutting the pieces out I used my Hougie Board to score along all the indicated lines.  After folding and burnishing the folds I used ultra tacky double sided tape to attach the both halves of the bag together.  I also used the same tape to secure the base.  I twisted three strands of baker’s twine to make a handle for the bag, putting a hole near the edge of the top fold over and threading through before I folded down the top.  I created a simple tag from two of the additional elements, sandwiching a piece of the twine between the two pieces before I glued them together with quick grab wet glue.  I have used the other spare pieces to make a small, quick card, as well – which you can see above.)
  2. Closeup of the little tag I made using two elements from the sheet.

CARD

I’ve gone for a fresh – white and pale green – look for my inspiration circular easel card.

cup382448_1749 - card04 - Spring Melody Elements

Thumbnail photos of some different areas/angles of this card.

cup382448_1749 - card06 - Spring Melody Elements   cup382448_1749 - card07 - Spring Melody Elements

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Consumables:

Equipment:

Method:

I made the base card by scoring and folding in half an A4 sheet of linen textured white card then cutting it out as an over the edge circle to live a joined hinge.  I then scored across the front at the half way point.

I took elements from this kit into one of my graphics packages and created a layout for two scalloped edged circles, one for the inside of the card and one for the outside.  I put the wording “Flowers Are Blooming – Spring Is In The Air” onto the tag element ton one side and also added extra flowers and three circular elements to use as stoppers on the unused space of my working area.  After printing the sheet out I cut everything out and stuck the circle elements directy to the inside and bottom half of the outside of the card.  I cut through the “twine” attached to the tag and used glue to attach it to the side of the card front so that the cut was disguised.  Foam tape was used to attach the “stoppers” and the extra flowers were shaped a bit before attaching with glue gel.
