So let me tell you how I put together this card :

I started by printing my “Wander often“ digital stamp onto Neenah paper using a toner printer and cut it out with my Scan n Cut machine !

Then I colour it using some Copic markers in shades of blue for the fish and some pale peach and green for the flowers !

Then I took some thick watercolour paper and I used the wet on wet technique and create a background in blue shades with a big paintbrush and some Gansai Tambi watercolours !

For some more interest I added some metallic gold  watercolours drops !

Then I cut out with some scissors my little pond and added it using some strong liquid glue who will make sure my pond is straight with no wrinkels onto my white card base !

The fish image I added it with some 3M foam tape for some dimension!

Then I die cut the word “Hugs“ using some alphabet die set from my stash a few times  out of black cardstock and glued 3 layers of each letter for some dimension!

Then to add my letters I used some strong liquid glue and a T ruler so I make sure my letters are positioned straight!

Then at the end as embellishments I used some Nuvo drops and some Glossy Accents for the letters to make them shinny!

And my card using “Wander often“ digital stamp from Polka Dot Orchard is now complete!

Thank you for stopping by and I´ll see you soon !

And whether you realize it or not you have been enjoying her work for years, seeing her projects for so many of the companies we all love! She needs our help and as one of the most caring communities we know, we are reaching out to all of you to help us help her. Larissa has been facing her own health issues. Gary, her husband, has been a police officer for over twenty years. He was in the process of trying to find work closer to home so that he could take care of her, when his own medical needs began to surface. He has had many hospital stays, lots of ups and downs, astronomical medical bills, and is still battling, every day, to just be able to be at home and try to regain his health. They are out of money, yet the medical bills continue to mount. Please help us to help them!’

More details here

Let me tell you how I put together the card:

I printed out my flowers onto Neenah Paper using a toner printer leaving some space between them so I can add my sentiment between them and then I colour them using some Polycromos pencils in shades of red and green.

 

 

After I added my sentiment that says Love you made of die cuts letters and you is one word out of black cardstock and I added them onto my front panel using some strong liquid glue . Then I added some Glossy Accents for some shine .

 

I took then a card base from red cardstock , I die cut another panel out of Mirror Red Cardstock slightly smaller than my card base and glue it down using some double sided tape and then I glued my front panel with the flowers !

And my card using “Flowers for the Pittman`s” digital stamp from Polka Dot Orchard is now complete !

Butterfly Flower

Hi crafty friends and welcome! Today I want to share with you a fun shaker card I made with the amazing “You are Everything Flower Butterfly” digital stamp from Polka Dot Orchard !

 

 

 

image 0

 

So let me tell you how I made it:

I started by print out my cute digital flowers using a  toner printer , after I cut them out with my Scan n Cut machine!

Then I color them in some blue shades with some Copic Markers.

I took a white card base that measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch, and also some light blue front card and cut it with a rectangle die slightly smaller than my card base. Then in the middle of my card I cut out a circle using a circle die shape. Then I traced the interior of the circle onto my white card base so I know where to create the base of my shaker because I knew I want to make a shaker card!

Then I added some Foam Tape on the card base taking care to leave enough space so you don`t see the foam tape from outside of the card!

Then on my light blue card front on the back I added some clear acetate piece to cover the circle. On the card base when I created the shaker base I added  first my sentiment using some liquid glue ,  that says “You are wonderful” is from the same digital set with the flowers and after I added some tini tiny balls and some heart blue sequins ! I give you a tip is you try make a shaker card and all the time you sequins are sticking on the walls of the shaker,,,,,use before adding the sequins mix some anti static powder tool ,,,that will take off the static and they wont stick anymore! I forgot this time to do it :)) but as I always say do as I say and not I do,,,!

Then I added the front card carefully !

Then I took my 5 beautiful “Butterfly Flowers” and arranged them in a half circle shape around my shaker and glue them with some strong glue . I also took some leaves I had left from other project and added them so it pulls the card together beautifully!

As final touch I added some blue stones to the Butterfly Flowers and my card is now complete!

 

 

I encourage you to go visit the Polka Dot Shop where you will find amazing digital images and also on their blog you will find more inspiring projects and if you subscribe you will get notified when new amazing products are released!

Thank you for stopping by and wish you a great week!
