Make & Take Friday 25th March

 This weekend we are making Easter cards.

I have a lot of sample pieces of backgrounds that I have made using inks and sprays and thought that this week I would use some of them.
I have chosen a background then stamped and embossed then using a water brush filled with bleach I have bleached out selected areas.
You never know how the bleaching is going to turn out which adds to the unpredictability of the card.
I have borrowed these crosses and think they have turned out very well.

Make & Take Friday 18th March

This week I have used the papers from Echo Park. The trees are on one sheet that you can cut into strips and get lots out of one sheet of paper, the others are all in the same range so they match each other, or you could use all those little left over pieces. I then stamped 3 flowers from Artemio and layered them with silicon so that they don't go flat.

Make & Take Friday 11th March

Here is the card for this week. I have used an embossing folder for the background and rubbed over the surface with a flat piece of Cut N Dry foam and the ink picks up more on the higher pattern, I then dried it off with a heat gun and then rubbed a Versamark ink pad over the top and added clear embossing powder which really high lighted the embossed design.

Whoops I missed out last weeks project.
A Diaper fold pocket. I have added some small Easter eggs in the pocket.
I will put the instructions on later as it is well past midnight.

Make & Take Friday 4th March

Something a little different here for the background.
Tear out the centre of a piece of paper then place it over a C6 piece of white card 
and stamp the words through the hole.
Now use the middle piece as a mask over the words and stamp around the edge, trim and sponge gently.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the navy card and wrapped white ribbon around it.
Cut out 2 extra flowers and placed them in the top left corner. the flower stamp is from Inkadinkado and the words from Hero.
