Technique Treats

Today I am sharing with you one of the cards created for our Technique Treats way back in March 2016.  It is using the lovely little “Easter Lamb” Stamp from the 2016 Occasions

March 2017 Technique Treats

Catalogue.  You could easily swap it out for a more current stamp set along with a different sentiment or greeting & it would be a whole new card.

 

To create my background I used Pear Piazzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers, but again you can easily change your colours to suit your card.  Spray shaving Cream onto a Paper Plate, Alfoil or Photo Copy Paper before randomly adding drops of Pear Pizzazz & Soft Sky Re-Inkers into the Shaving Cream & swirl through with the Simply Scored Tool being carful not to mix too much.

Place a piece of Shimmery White CS into the Shaving Cream until all CS is covered.  You could do more pieces if you want so that you can use them at a later date.  Wipe excess off with a Tissue.  Use the piece for your card background or run it through the Big Shot with a Die.

If you head on over to the Technique Treats Page, you will find another Tutorial using the same Technique along with heaps of other fun Technique Tutorials.  You also receive separate instructions for your Techniques which means you are able to file in a folder & keep for later.

Until next time, Happy Stampn’

Happy Easter…

Envelope & Inside of Card…

We created an Easter Card today at the Caloundra Community Centre.  Always a relief to hear that the ladies loved it!  Along with the card, we included the Techniques of Scoring & Chalking, plus a little bit of punching & we have a really lovely Easter card!  Will be the first to admit it is not your normal traditional card, but I love the Cabuary’s Purple & I built the card around that colour!!!!!

Measurements –
Base Card – Concord Crush – 11 3/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 29.5cm x 10.5cm – Scored in middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 3/4″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Melon Mambo – 5 5/8″ x 3 3/4″ or 13.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Whisper White – 3 3/4″ x 3″ or 9.5cm x 8cm
Layer 4 – Concord Crush – 3″ x 2″ or 8cm x 5cm
Layer 5 – Whisper White – 2 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ or 7.5cm x 4.5cm

I layered the piece of Melon Mambo to Whisper White & then to the Base Card using Snail Adhesive.

With the medium piece of Whisper White, I scored at /1/2″ intervals diagonally & then diagonally the other using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool – out in the new Mini 1st April.  I then grabed a couple of SU! Sponges, my Stampin’ Pastels & randomly chalked the whole area using 3 or 4 colours.  I added a little bit of Daffodil Delight to lift it a little & to bring the colours out.  I didn’t really bother to fill all the white spaces, as I have left some here & there to give a little bit more of an effect!

I punched a border along both sides of the chalked piece with my Scallop Trim Border Punch.
I adhered a piece of Ribbon along the middle, tucked ends under, tied a knot & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

I stamped the Bunny image onto the smallest piece of Whisper White using Poppy Parade Ink & adhered to the piece of Concord Crush Cardstock.  This piece was adhered to the top of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I typed the greeting onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, punched out with my Modern Label Punch.  I punched a 2nd piece in Concord Crush Cardstock & cut in 2.  I adhered this 2nd piece to the Whisper White so that just the ends of the Concord Crush were showing. 4 Pearls, 2 each end were adhered to the greeting.

I adhered 3 Pearls to the top LH corner of the image, 3 small Pearls along the bunny’s neck while another was adhered tot the centre of the flower & adhered to her neck.  I punched this small flower using the Flower Punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Set in Melon Mambo Cardstock.
