Hope you are fine and are enjoying the summer, outside or inside crafting maybe?:)
This Friday I want to show you a card I have made with the wonderful "Ska vi ta en Fika"/"Let's have coffee" collection from Maja Design.
And I have also made a step by step of how I made the butterflies I have on the card.
The paper I have used are:
♥ Søders Høider
♥ Lejas Cafe
Now some close-ups of the details.
My scene is made with two stamps from Magnolia:
Tilda with Daisys and Mushrooms and Sunny Autumn Morning.
I have coloured the scene with Distress Ink-reinkers and Markers.
I have also used some stamps from Stempelglede and the Vintage Garden collection. Both text stamps are from Magnolia.
And now I want to show you how I made the butterflies on my card.
So I have made a step by step, here it goes:
I start with the papers I want to use, here Kraft and Maja Design Pattern Paper (Ska vi ta en Fika? -Søders Højder), a brush and some glue (here Glue n' seal).
I put some glue on the Kraft paper.
As much as this. But that is up to you (I wanted more pattern paper on the butterflies than Kraft).
Now I lay the pattern paper over the Kraft paper.
I push them extra hard together. And then I wait for some minutes. It doesn't take long time before the glue has fasten the papers together.
Now I start to rip some of the pattern paper off the Kraft paper.
Here is what it looks like when I am finished.
Now it is time to find the tools. I use my Big Shot, and the butterflies I use are from Tim Holtz.
I have to lay the butterflies inside the tag-die. (Then I only need one plate under the dies, and one over.)
I lay the paper over the dies like you see on the photos.
Here I place the plate (well used:)) over the dies.
Turn the weel, ...and the dies are on the other side.
I take away the plate...
... and take a look at the butterflies:)
I add some ink (walnut stain) to the paper edges.
And pretty them up with some Liquid Pearls-Bisque...
... like this.
And here they are on the card, with a purple rose on each:)
Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Take care & have a wonderful Friday:)
