Galaxy Background Birthday Card by Sarah

|

Have you tried inking up a galaxy background? I hadn’t given it a go yet – til now! Cover a panel of card in patches of ink in a range of colours – yellow, purple, pink and aqua. Any kind goes, I used mostly Distress Oxides, one Catherine Pooler dye ink and a generic pink pigment ink. Smoosh and blend til you’ve got no white space left. Let them mix as much or as little as you like. Only parts … Read More

Sparkly Peace And Comfort Card By Sarah

|

Time for some metallics and glitter! Blend up a background straight onto your card blank in green and blue inks. Add a gently curving swoosh of embellishment mousse in from each side with a tissue, then put the card aside to completely dry. Stamp and heat emboss the mandala and leaves on vellum paper. I did the mandala just in silver and the leaves in silver first, heated til only just melting, then allow to cool, reapply embossing ink and … Read More

STITCHED BACKGROUND NOTE CARD BY SARAH

|

When is a hill not a hill? When it’s criss-crossed as a sophisticated stitch-effect background.   Cut a panel of white card to fit your card blank. Lay one of the stitched hill dies across the panel diagonally as close to top right corner to bottom left corner as it’s long enough to go, secure with washi or memo tape and run through your diecutter. Move the die an inch or so out towards the bottom right corner. It’ll hang … Read More

Trial and Error Thank You Card by Sarah

|

One of my new year’s resolutions is to give myself more time to play with card designs so I can try out tricky, messy things without feeling pressed for time. Bring on the mixed media! Stamp and heat emboss the largest mandala. There’s something magic about watching embossing powder transform to shiny as it reaches just the right temperature. Make sure to heat from below as well as above to minimise warping. Repeat with the next size down mandala, using … Read More
