Designer Faves: Elizabeth

February 18, 2014

Join us all this week for inspiration and fun as our designers share their current “faves” from our newest release, Happy Everything. And on Friday, we’ll reveal our winners from our release week (Feb. 3-7) giveaways!




How did she create this masterpiece, you ask?

1.  Create a card base from Summer Sun cardstock. Stamp Wondrous across the front in light orange ink and then again in medium orange ink. Set Aside.

2.  Lay the Verdant stencil across a piece of white cardstock that is the same size as the front of the card. Apply modeling paste to the stencil openings with palette knife. Carefully remove the stencil and let paste dry. (Clean the stencil before proceeding.)

3.  Once the paste is dry, place the stencil over the design to use as a mask to protect surrounding cardstock areas. Apply inks and/or chalks to the exposed paste designs as desired.

4.  Trim around the lower portion of the trailing flowers and stamp the sentiment (Special Wishes) in black ink. Highlight the top and right edges with light blue ink and/or chalk.

5.  Adhere the finished artwork to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam tape and accent the flowers with pearl stickers.

    Love the technique used. The brightness of the card makes it so springlike.

    This is such an interestingly different way of making a card – an utterly effective one. I love the way that the soft blue edging provides a little contrast & definition but at the same time doesn’t detract from the vibrancy of the floral edge. The little yellow edge across the top is another feature that I find very effective for it provides a border for the eye to settle on so it knows not to go further. The tone-on-tone backdrop for the largest flower provides another subtle hint of interest without detracting from the flower itself.
