Succulent Texture Paste Card

Hello everyone today I have a card I created with texture past and reinker. It is very easy to make.

If you want to make this you will need:

Making The Stencil

I firstly began by designing the stencil in design space. I chose the succulent image from the Flower Market Cartridge. I placed one image on my canvas and removed the silhouette backing. I then selected the contour button and hid the outside line of the image. By doing this it stops the whole flower being cut and only the inside petals.

I duplicated the image so I had enough images to form an image I thought would be great for a stencil. I then selected all the succulent images and selected weld. This makes them all one image. I then inserted an square and modified the shape until it was a rectangle and would cover the succulents in a way I wanted. I then selected both the succulent and square image and selected slice. I then deleted the parts I did not want to keep.

If you want to keep the image on a larger sheet then you can cut it as it is. I wanted to keep a smaller piece so I added a larger rectangle and attached the images. If you do not want to do this yourself feel free to use my file in design space Here.

I the used the cricut to cut out the design.

Making the card

On a mat on my table I used a small amount of the texture paste. I added two drops of the reinker to the paste and mixed it through. The more reinker you add to the paste the darker the colour. I then placed the stencil over the card. I then used the palette knife to spread the paste evenly over the stencil. Once it is all covered I lifted the stencil off and let it dry.

I used the thanks from the October SOTM set to stamp thanks on a scrap piece of white cardstock and edged it with the Mint Shimmer brush. Once the paste was dry I then stuck the ribbon down with Liquid glass and used 3D foam tape to stick the word thanks down. I then added a ribbon bow and placed a glitter gem in the centre.

This is a real cute fun technique to try and I hope you all have a try.

          Today’s post features the absolutely stunning Little Dreamer Paper Pack. Screen Shot 2017-05-19 at 11.05.50 pm

This Paper pack has some gorgeous designs and I am sure the amazing ladies in this blog hop will have some amazing ideas showcasing the versatility of them.

My design I am showing you today is a Peek-a-Boo card. These are cute and fun cards and can be used for so many occasions. The Peek-a-Boo cards have a window in the front of the card that when opens allows for another image to appear there. Here is what my card looks like closed and when opened. Note that the image visible in the window when closed in actually attached to the background card stock.

I am using this card for a young girls second birthday who loved hidden images in books so I thought this style card would be perfect for her. I wanted to keep the card child like so I kept it simple and used the glitter complements. What young girl does not like glitter?

As you can see when opened the image that appears is a unicorn jumping over a rainbow. I fussy cut the paper and drew the rainbow on card stock and added bling from the complements pack.

The front of the card is decorated with Whimsy ribbon and cut outs using the cricut machine. The holes in the card were done using the Circle Thin Cuts, however you can do this with any shape thin cut.

I have added colour  to my Happy Birthday cut out with ink and sponge. If you wanted a brighter effect you could also use the markers or watercolour paints.

This card is really fun to make so give it a try.

Minnie Mouse cricut card

Minnie Mouse Cricut Card.

miniemouse card

Today I want to share with you a card I made at the request of a friend. She wanted a Minnie Mouse card made for her cousin who is turning 1. I had fun making this card. It was quick and easy and a great way to use up some scraps for Minnie mouse.

As you may be able to tell from my previous post. I love the Disney characters. So yes I own a few of the Cricut cartridges digitally. This Minnie mouse layered image come from the Disney- Mickey & friends Cricut cartridge. I set the size at relative 4″. If you are going to try this and are new to Cricut, using Relative dial size automatically sets each item for cutting to be set at the size to match the black base/shadow image.

The card was made to measure 5×7. I cut a piece of black card stock measuring 4¾” x 6¾”. I then cut a piece of white card stock to 4″x 5¼”. This white piece I then embossed with the dot embossing folder.

I followed the assembly instructions in the handbook for Minnie mouse. I Attached her to the embossed card stock. Adhered the black card to the 5×7 card and then attached the embossed white on an angle to the black card. I feel that by placing it on an angle adds a point of interest for the card.

I then glued the balloon to the position I was happy with and then glued the string down. I used liquid glass to attach the string, I find when sticking fabric down it is best. I just get a little bit to the tip and then wipe along where I want so there is no leakage onto the project.

I had some black and white spotted ribbon and made a bow and positioned it in the corner of the white embossed card. I tried to make sure none of the ribbon was outside the card space as I didn’t want to squash it too much when placing in the envelope.

I hope this inspires you to create some cards this weekend. Please feel free to pin this to Pinterest for future reference and to share it with your friends.
