Ooops. I never posted close up photos of last week’s Come Craft With Me session! EEK! Quick… let’s do it now! 🙂
This crafty session was SO MUCH FUN! I managed to do three cards again – which is pretty good going for me – although I knew that the wedding card would take the longest, which is why the other two are pretty clean and simple. Great little projects for some of the beginner crafters that were watching the stream.
So if you don’t know what i’m talking about – let me explain. Every Friday night I have a YouTube LIVE crafting stream from 9pm BST – and it usually goes on for about 3 hours. I make a couple of projects usually, and try out different styles and techniques to keep it fun! I love interacting with the live viewers and we normally end up having lots of giggles! Subscribe to my YouTube, and turn on your notifications to make sure that you get a nudge when I go live.
So for this sesh, I knew that I had to make a commission piece – a wedding card using Lawn Fawn products. I had some ideas before starting out, so decided to start with some other CAS cards. First up, this cute bunny!
This card is for a friend of mine who is not very well at the moment. I stamped the word HUGS and then die cut the letters for BIG, and layered this onto a bright pink cardbase. I very rarely use coloured cardstock as a base, so this was a little outside the box for me. I added a bunny from the Mama Elephant lunar animals stamp set, and found a perfectly sweet message in a MFT stamps set, which I stamped in grey ink.
Next up it was ink blending time! I am so in love with blending my dye inks- but i kinda need more blending foam pads. (hmmm…Note to self!)
I am also in love with these bitty bears! So cute, huh!? I used rounded rectangle dies to cut four panels into my card,and blending some bright tones onto the card base.
Sorry this photo is decidely not in focus – but i couldn’t NOT share it. I love the blendywendywoo! I used a Simon says Stamp banner die to mount a greeting to the front.
Next up – the main event! The Lawn Fawn wedding card! 🙂
I hope you like it! I am so happy with how it turned out. I knew that I wanted to TRY to use the mermaid for you stamp set to create a little married couple. It was tricky to come up with an idea where they would not look like mermaids! LOL. But I did it!
In the middle I die cut a heart shape, and I actually added some glitter wrapping paper behind it. The gift paper I bought at Papersource earlier this year, and it was the perfect addition to make the heart pop. The greeting is from the Fairy Friends set from Lawn Fawn, and I used some Liquid platinum embossing powder to emboss the greetting – it matches the glitter paper beautifully!
To carry the magical theme, I added a sweet fairy to the top of the card, and some little sparkles coming from her wand! I also added some sparkles with a glitter pen as well as embossing those diamond shapes.
For the bride and groom – there was a little tweaking required. I used a black pen to create a tuxedo on the groom, and also added some straps to the bride’s dress. If you look real hard, you will also see that there is a line across her belly that i covered with white gel pen, then I added sparkles with my glitter pen. I think I pulled it off! LOL.
SO there we go! Three more cards, and three more hours of awesome fun! Thank you to everyone who joined me for the Come Craft With Me show. I hope to see you at the next one – Friday evenings 9pm BST.
Happy crafting. x Lesley
