Beautiful Day Tag + Color Throwdown Challenge #398 + SSS Wednesday Challenge 

Hello crafty friends! 

I’m here again today to share with you a gift tag I made for a dear good friend of mine! We’ve been friends for a good three years and I absolutely adore her! This will also be my very first Color Throwdown Challenge Entry and SSS Wednesday Challenge: Shimmer 


Here’s some photos. 


So hard to capture the glitter effect on the tag. I used my flash on my phone to try and reflect the glitter! It’s lovely up close! 


Steps:

  1. I cut my tag using My Favorite Things tag dies. (I used the largest of the dies)
  2. Prepped my tag using my embossing buddy to remove any static cling so as I apply the embossing the powder it sticks to where I stamp my image and no where else. 
  3. For the floral I used the outline stamp from Altenew’s Beautiful Day stamp set. I stamped the image using my MISTI tool (I stamped the image twice. I’ll be using the second image for masking) using Versamark ink and applied gold embossing powder and heat set it. 
  4. For the leaves and little floral clusters (well that’s what I call it! Lol) I used from the same stamp set. For the butterfly I used Altenew’s Painted Butterflies Stamp Set and did the same steps as the floral. 
  5. For the sentiment I used from Mama Elephant’s I Like You Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and applied gold embossing powder and heat set it as well. 
  6. I then watercolored all the stamped images using my Gansai Tambi Watercolors. 
  7. To finished off my card I added some glitter shimmer and sequins. I also added a gold string to finish off the top.

That’s it for today I hope you enjoyed today’s post! Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful day! 

Xoxo,

Lydine

Beautiful Day + Altenew June Challenge 

Hafa Adai Everyone!

I’m back and will be getting in the swing of things. Sorry I’ve been MIA! Just finished with school and had some interviews going on and also some family things I had to focus my attention to!

Everything is back on track as it should be. I sure miss making cards! Finally had the time to create one and to share it with you all! I decided to give a shot at making a bendy card. I saw a photo on Pinterest here’s the link for a more details http://www.paperprimrose.com/2014/02/bendi-card-saturday-step-x-step/ and thought it was clever. So, here I am making it. Well attempting  is more better. Lol…

Here’s some photos

I used my phone’s flash to try and capture the shimmer and sparkles but it’s so hard to get it. Up close its just so lovely!


Steps:

  1. For the main base size is the standard A2 card front. (4 1/4 X 5 1/2″)
  2. For the left flap I measured 4 1/4 X 2 1/2″ and the right 1 3/4 X 2 1/2″
  3. I then scored both of the outside flaps  1/2″ and adhered on the back of the main base with some scor double adhesive
  4. Next I scored on the inside of the flaps 1/2″ and made tabs.
  5. Then I took the left flap and made a curve/bend and marked it on the main base. I then made a slit using my penblade #11. I repeated the steps for the right flap.
  6. Now the fun part! First I stamped the floral with the outlined on the middle top with Versamark and sprinkled some embossing powder and heat set it. I then masked off the middle floral and stamped two more florals on the sides.
  7. For leaves and butterflies I stamped the one with the outline and did the same step with the florals.
  8. I watercolored all the stamped images using my Gansai Tambi Watercolors. For the florals I used #42 for the lightest #33 for the darkest and #34 for the center.
  9. For the watercolored leaves I used #53. For the butterflies I used #42 and #34
  10. For the sentiment I used the same stamp set as the florals (Beautiful Day)
  11. To finished of the card I added some sparkles and glossy accents to the centers of the florals and some sequins.

That’s it for today. I will also be using this card as my entry to Altenew’s June Challenge. So many beautiful creations! Join in there’s still time! http://altenewblog.com/2016/06/01/june-inspiration-challenge/
