I was asked to make a set of cards for a co-worker. She gave the general idea of what she wanted and was looking for. She wanted something with wings, colourful with inspirational quotes. I started a set of templates, I started with 6 cards which turned into 28 in total. Yep 28.
I started with some background stamping and texture. I love texture and I used a ton of supplies on these cards. Depending on the background paper, I picked stamps to match or accentuate the paper.
I made a video of the process.
Starting with the background I stamped with various colours and stamps. I did make a list of all the supplies I used at the bottom. I also used some of my favourite stencils on the background, The Distress Patterns stencil with various pastes to get that extra feel to the card.
By using different layers of stamps, then pastes, then more stamps it blends and coordinated the cards. It pulls in more details.
Jodi wanted to have “Wings” to be included into the cards. she wanted then colourful. I started on the original six cards with the Butterflies. Using a textured embossing powder I heat set to match the cards. Depending on the card set I used various Butterflies , Flourish Butterflies and Dragonflies.
I couldn’t just make the cards alone, SO i event all out and made matching envelopes and carried the patters and layers over on to the envelopes to have matching sets.
Here is a short slide show of most of the cards to see the carious colours and paper collections I used on each.
Thank you for Stopping by Today.
