Lucky for me there are 5 Saturdays in this Month so I get to be Guest Designer five times. Sadly this will be my last time. I have totally enjoyed joining the girls in designing cards for the challenges each week and the hardest bit has been working out the time difference. I have loved seeing all the different ideas the Design Team come up with each week and how it inspires you all out there to join in. How easy is this one with my mountain of NBUS (Never Before Used Stuff - word thought up by Darnell and used by many in the card crafting world)
You might need a pair of sunnies here as this is a very bright sparkly card.
I have used a die I purchased and have not used before, so NEW (to me)
This die is from Neat & Tangled and the link will take you directly to it
but at the moment it is sold out.
I plan to do another post with a pile of ideas using this die but for today I have used it with glitter. I started out planning to do one thing then changed my mind pat way through. This version was very easy. I die cut a piece of orange card stock and then removed all the little bits and pieces which I have kept in a zip lock bag to use with another cut out of a different colour for a different card later.
I then added a piece of doubled sided tape to the front of my card which is the same size as the die cut panel.
I added the die cut panel lightly until I was sure it was straight then pressed down. I then added glitter from the bottom white, yellow, orange and bronze. I need to work on this style more as I wanted a look of one colour blending into the other but I realised that this many colours in this small a space it wasn't going to work that well. Anyway it turned out ok and not too bad though Jake now has a distinctive glittery look as he moves through the sunlight due to spillage and insisting on sleeping under my craft table.
I finished the card off with a 'celebrate' die that I have had an used for a number of used so that and my glitter are my 'old'.
Edit: I'm quickly sneaking in another card I have done. This time with the same die but with copic colouring.
Don't look too closely or you will see all the glue, boy was this a fiddly card. I am determined to try again and find an easier way to do it.
Please feel free to come back see what else I do with this die as I have been busy this morning cutting up multiple layers to experiment with. I look forward to sharing with you.
Now its time to go and see what beautiful cards the Design Team over at Just Us Girls have made for your inspiration. Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
Thank you ladies for having me on the team for the last month, I have totally enjoyed myself and feel sad my time has come to an end.
