Gift Card

Good Morning Crafters

Today we have a wonderful tutorial by another of our talented design team.

Mags has made this gorgeous gift card.

Imagination Crafts Products

Daisy Stamp Set
Friendship Stamp Set

Make a base card by using a piece of card 21cm by 28cm.  Measure, cut and score as shown.

Matt your chosen cardstock onto the card base.  I used my favourite colour of purple for this.  On the inside of the card create a pocket using the same colour cardstock.

 Stamp the small daisy stamp several times onto coloured vellum (I used purple) and 3 small butterflies and emboss with white embossing powder.  
Also stamp a sentiment onto one of the front panels.  
I used the Friendship sentiment set from Imagination Crafts for this.

 Glue the flowers onto the top flap of the card.  
I also added some punched leaves.  
Decoupage the flowers for added dimension.

   Decorate the remainder of the card with the butterflies and some pearls.

   Here is the finished gift card.  
I have added a gift voucher to the pocket inside but you could easily add a sentiment tag or even cash.

We hope you have enjoyed today's tutorial.

Picture Frame

Good Morning Crafters

We hope you all enjoyed your weekend and ready to see another tutorial

Today we have a picture frame tutorial by Christine.

Imagination Crafts Products Used

Sparkle Medium Black Stars, Turquoise, Silver
Bird of Paradise Stamp
Garden Bench Stencil
Mica Powders

Take a black card picture mount and spritz it with water. Dust over some mica powders with a big soft brush.

Stamp the Bird of Paradise into the mica with Versarmark Clear Embossing Ink. Wipe the stamp each time as the stamp will lift off the coloured mica powders. Dust on blue mica powder.

Using the Garden Bench stencil, add the leaves part of the stencil to each corner and spread Turquoise and Black Stars Sparkle Medium mixed together to give a dark shade of blue.

Let the Sparkle Medium dry or use a heat gun to speed up the process.

Spread some Silver Sparkle Medium onto acetate using the Butterfly stencil and when dry cut out and add some gems. Fix to the top right hand corner of the frame.
Add some gems to each corner and to the Butterfly. The frame is now ready for you to add your favourite photo behind.

Up, up and away

Good Morning Crafters

Today it is my turn to post my tutorial using Imagination Craft Products which can be found on their Website

I cut a piece of pearlescent card down to 15 x 15 cm and using Distress Ink Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage to create the sky and hills.

Using Sparkle Medium in Forest Green, Gunmetal, Soft Purple, Black Stars and Cinnamon.
I stencilled these over the Ballooning stencil and put to one side to dry.

This is the scene which has now dried.

Using Spellbinder Grande Square I cut out a frame using wood grain card.

I then distressed the frame with Vintage Photo which highlights the wood grain card.

Positioned the frame over the scene I created.

To finish off I matted and layered with foam pads for dimension onto a 7 x 7 square cream card and added Tim Holtz Chit Chat "Summer Holiday"

I hope you have enjoyed my Tutorial.

Once the Silkies has dried mat and layer your card stock onto pale blue and navy blue card stock.
