Challenge time! I forgot to post my previous DT-card but I’m double excited about this week’s one. I think I’ve mentioned several times about my digi stamp, vintage image hoarding habit? If I haven’t…Well. My name is Niina and I am an image addict.
This week were asked to use stitching, faux or real and we didn’t get a sponsored image to use so we could run wild! I decided to dive in my extensive vintage catalogue and found this gem. I’m so sorry but when I downloaded it, I forgot to re-name it according to where I got it so I can’t share the source. Totally embarrassed about it.
Anyway, here is my overly cute deer card:
Once again I’m amazed by my obvious talent for everything visual. The pink! The chevron! The pom pom trim! Techniques used: doodle stitching, slight distressing on the edge of the chevron and the deer image is printed on heavy Canson watercolour paper. No ink and no stamping! I feel like I’ve started to move towards more design-y style, rather than entirely crafty. Something for me to ponder about. What do you think? Have you seen a shift in my style?
Don’t forget to join Craft Your Passion this week and I’m also sharing my card on these challenges:
Past few months I’ve spotted quite a few blog candy giveaways. So far I’ve managed to resist participating but I feel it’s time to give in. Why? Because Christmas is fast approaching and it doesn’t hurt your budget if you can win some gifts in advance. Anyhoo, a Finnish blogger Karita is giving away these two stamps by In2Stamps.
I think my god-daughter would like these, don’t you think? Oh, and doesn’t the girl remind you of Megan? The girl from My Little Pony? *sigh*
Now that my card making journey has lasted a little over a week, I feel that it’s time to take this thing to another level. Or should I say another dimension. The THIRD- dimension! Wow. I’m so clever.
I just spent nearly two hours making a card. Adding layers takes time, especially when chosen motif is a flower and all those pesky petals had to be cut separately. If you want to make one yourself, here’s the how-to:
Stamp different kind of flowers on white cardstock with black ink.
Colour some of them. Or every single one, if you fancy a colourful bouquet.
Cut the flowers and try to preserve the black outline.
I’m assuming that you have some kind of cardbase already at hand so the next step is to stamp few flowers here and there on it.
Draw flower stems (I did this after I’d done attaching flowers and it wasn’t a good decision)
Now arrange the cut flowers as you wish. When you’re happy with the look of things, use glue and foam dots to attach flowers on the card. This way you get the layered look.
Make a bow out of whatever ribbon you have and use tacky glue to attach it.
