Card and 3D project

I have two projects to show you today. The first one is a card for a friends birthday. I have used the petals stampin wheel and inked it up using the Rose Red ink pad. Rolled it over the rose red cardstock and cut a strip approximately 6.5cm. Then I used my corner rounder to make a scalloped edge. It was then stuck onto the main card with DST.

I then used the 'Loads of Love' and the 'Loads of Love Accessories' stamp sets. The truck was stamped three times, once on the designer paper, once on rose red cardstock and once on apricot appeal cardstock. I then cut out sections from the cardstock and layered them onto the designer paper. The lady was stamped directly onto the whisper white cardstock. I then stuck the truck on top of the white so the lady was visible in the window. If you have the stamp a-ma-jig you can stamp the lady after you have stuck the truck down. Its optional if you want to round corners etc. Then mat and layer onto Apricot Appeal cardstock. I then used a round tab punch and punched out in rose red, added a greeting from the accessories set, placed this on the corner. Mounted the whole thing using the stmpin dimensionals. I then added some flowers but coloured them using glitter pens as I don't have the markers YET!


My next project is for a pencil/pen holder. I have used chipboard and cut out some 4 x 4 inch squares. You would need five for the basics and another two if you want to put some dividers inside. If you don't have chipboard you can use the back of paper pads, you know the grey bits that you tend to throw away. Cover all the sides, on all the pieces. Then you need to punch holes to thread ribbon though to hold all the pieces together. I used a crop a dile. Then I weaved the ribbon through.

Then I took a further two pieces and made some sections and secured those with ribbon at the top. Voila all done. I hope you enjoyed viewing :-)
