15 Minute Projects
Hi everyone, I as everyone I know who crafts likes to be able to make a quick card every now and then or possibly even needs to ....
A favourite thing of mine is to use odds and ends and backing papers that I have made myself or scraps left over from other projects ... why waste them ?
The following projects do just that and they are quick too, all stamps are available on the Chocolate Baroque Website.
Honey Bee Bookmark
The bookmark is using stamps from the Honey Bee stamp set.
Take a white off cut from any previous project and if need be cut to suit your bookmark sleeve with a piece of backing card.
Stamp and Emboss the image and sentiment. Using a clear gel pen to make some trails around the image randomly. Whilst this is drying add some colour to the bee.
Using a blender pad add colour to your white card ( you gel pen should be dry by now ) mount on background, pop into bookmark sleeve and add ribbon if desired.
The Rose Tree
The Rose Tree stamps set.
Stamp image and verse onto white card using a permanent brown inkpad ( I used the Versafine Habanero) As I used Inktense Pencils to add a little colour to the tree itself and to ground it, so as it wouldn't appear to be floating in mid air. Use either a clear sparkle brush pen or plain water brush to activate colour. Mount onto black card and then to ready folded card of choice.
Essence of Nature Stamp Set
Both coloured backgrounds on this card are from my stash .... Just cut to size desired stamp and heat emboss the image and a sentiment of your choice. Mount onto card.
Serenity Stamp Set
For this card I simply used another background from my stash .... this one has been made using spray inks with a mica to add shine, if I remember correctly but any background will do the backing card is just a bought paper cut to size.
Stamp and heat emboss and using colours of choice add some colour to image. Mount onto card.
Thank you for looking
