These were two cards I designed for our class to create during our November session. I had seen the style on the right where the images seem to fade away with the second and third generation stamping and later found the idea of putting decoupage medium on dryer sheets and sprinkling it with glitter before attaching it to the same fade-away style image.
My Spellbinders Heirloom Oval Die created the white frame, an Inkadinkadoo stamp set called Trees provided the forest and the deer. Heaven only knows about that stamp set; it was given to me by a friend of a friend and may have been discontinued long ago. Besides the silver craft paper, I use white and several shades of blue. The same is true of the inks and embossing powders I used.
The flowy, soft, smooth bow can only be done with real silk ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon). Nothing else has the drape of real silk. Rayon seam binding comes close but has a rougher texture that sometimes doesn’t seem appropriate for the card being made. This was 1/4 inch white silk ribbon twined on a Becca Feeken Bow Maker and teased down to one side.
So, listen up crafty ladies. We will be working on a feminine Valentine’s Day Tag Album tomorrow. These will be shorter tags than we’ve worked with in the past and will be comprised of only 4 tags. That is 8 sides. We will decorate one side and have a spot for a picture or a favorite quote on the other. You can make the album for yourself, if you like, as a remembrance of some special person or occasion… or words to live by. Think about it and join us tomorrow with some ideas to share.
Please be sure to comment below… it makes my day! Blessings & Hugs, y’all..!!
