Sue Wilson Dies and Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily

I made a card using Sue Wilson Dies Belgian Collection, Brussels and add a lily made from Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily Stamps. It is so easy to make  high impact designs with these highly detailed dies.



This is the card for today. I cut a base of 4 1/4″ X 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″. I used the large die and the frame to cut out of the pink cardstock. For the sentiment I used the frame for the center and cut from white. On the white I stamped a sentiment from a Tim Holtz set.

Once the die cutting is done all that is left is the flower. I stamped the Sunrise Lily from Heartfelt Creations and colored with Tim Holtz Distress inks Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed & Shabby Shutters. Then cut using Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily Dies.
I did very basic & easy shaping.On the backside of each piece I pressed on tips of petals with 6mm ball tool, flipped over and pressed in the center. Then glue the pieces together and add to the card.

Pan Pastels & Penny Black

I am a Guest Designer at Cut@Home . Today I made a tag card using a Penny Black stamp and die.

Today I'll be making a tag on a card using Pan Pastels and Penny Black stamp and die. Pan Pastels are an oil based chalk product. Wait until you see how smooth they go on. A great alternative for a blended background.

To see the VIDEO
I am using a manila tag. Usually I use either Pastel paper or a drawing paper. I start with my pearlescent pastels (on the top) and the dark blue below. I use the  SOFFT blending sponges. They have various shapes and detailed tips on a handle as well. Since this is a background I will use the large sponge. The sponges are washable and reusable.

Start by lightly applying color. I used light & Dark blue for most of the card and light green on the bottom. It looks fine BUT I tried to darken the edges wih Distress stain and ruined it. But don't throw away mistakes or be afraid to try new things. This part of the video is missing. I must have forgotten to turn it back on:-(

 I painted on a light coat of Gesso. Now the surface is smooth and the dark edges covered.

I got out my larger set of Pan Pastels this time and applied the same way as before.

Once done I stamped the lovely Penny Black Lily bouquet using Versafine ink.

I used Zig Real Brush Clean Color watercolor markers. I did the leaves and a bit of light purple and noticed the ink was smearing. Chalk needs to be sealed but I was going to do that at the end. I sprayed it (rather I had someone else spray it LOL) with Krylon Workable Fixative. But a cheap hair spray like Aqua Net, works too.

The tag was too large for a A2 card so I made it 7"X 9" scored at 4.5" and a side fold. I used coordinating paper from a Gina K Designs paper pack I have. Add some sequins using a CrystalKatana pickup tool to pick up and adhered with Angel Craft permanent tape.
