I received some great news this morning.......I've got a seat for the first Sydney Copic Certification Class yeah!!!! and Kerrie got one too. We're both very excited and really looking forward to 6th May...... I think you'll be hearing more about this don't you LOL.
Are you ready to play along with Nina and the TMITA/PCC design team this week?
Kim is hosting the challenge and she's asked us to use any of Nina's images to make a 4" card using 1 ribbon, a single type of embellishment, 1 sentiment and NO dp!!!!!
I decided to make another mini easel card using a Spellbinder Blossom die, which is just under four inches. The last time I posted one of these I had a few comments asking how I made it so I'll quickly explain that you fold some card to make it large enough to cut the shape you want. In my case I folded an 8" piece of card to 4" square. Sit the die so that at the top the dies cutting ridge sits just over the fold in the card. After you remove the card from your Cuttlebug or die cut machine you have the shape joined at the top. Open the card out so the join is in the middle and fold the top of the top shape in towards this join. This makes your easel now you just need to cut one more single shape to decorate for the front of your card. Easy peasy!!! Once it's decorated add some double sided tape to the folded down easel and attach the decorated card front, lining up the petals.
On my card I ran the base through the Cuttlebug with a Swiss dots embossing folder to add a little interest. My Computer generated sentiment is attached with a foam dot on the base with the check ribbon.
I've used Nina's image 'Teacup with Daisies' printed onto pure white card and coloured with Copic markers for my Mother's Day card. A Spellbinders circle die cut the image out.
Don't forget at this point when you attach the image to the blossom shape to line it up with the folded down easel. If in doubt add the shape front first then attached the coloured image!!
For the embellishments I've added 7 blue KaiserCraft gems 1 in each of the blossom scallops.
Hope you like this little mini easel and might be tempted to have a go at making one too. Want to check out the design teams cards? all the links are in the side bar here or you'll see them over at TMITA. If you want to purchase one of Nina's image check out the online store here.
This weeks winner will receive their choice of two digital images from Paper Cupcakes.....Good luck everyone.
Thanks for dropping by, hope all's well in your corner of the world.
Till next time........
