White on White

White on white sm H2O

This week’s challenge over at: Crazy4Challenges  the challenge is to make a white on white card.  I was in the mood to make something floral so I decided to make white rose and one of my favorite embossing folders by Spellbinders:

The Steps:

Step 1:  First cut a pc. of white cardstock into a rectangle that measures 5.25″ x 7″.  Put this rectangle into the embossing folder and run through your cutter/embossing machine.

Step 2:  Create a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock at 5.5″  Fold for a book fold,  Adhere step 1 to the front of the base card.

Step 3:  Make 3 roses and their leaves from white cardstock.  If you have never tried making paper realistic flowers by Susan Tierney Cockburn, here is the tutorial video for making these exact roses: Susan’s Rose 1 video tutorial

I constructed my roses directly onto the embossed folder layer on the front of the card making sure the finished arrangement would be centered into the oval.

Step 4:  I used a die for the sentiment that I honestly don’t know the manufacturer’s name, but use it often for sympathy cards. I bought on HSN yrs. ago and is a set of “word” dies. The butterfly is from Elizabeth Craft Designs, but is discontinued.

That’s It!

Thank you so much for taking a look.  I think white on white cards always look elegant no matter what the theme is, so go for it this week!

C4C – 440 Ombre Technique

C4C 440 final

Ok, first I just have to say I suck at water color paper.  I watched this video of this kid demonstrating how he makes ombre backgrounds and it looked so easy.  I had this paper that is water color paper so I tried this kids technique.  I obviously need to practice because my light to dark is not fluid.  I pulled too much color in areas and well you can see.  But, there are no “challenge police” at Crazy4Challenges and after it dried I liked how it looked.  I saw like clouds and sky going to water.  So I went with it.

The Steps:

Step !:  Create a background using one color of ink going from dark to light.  There are so many good videos on this technique on YouTube.  I just used a blue Hampton Art mini cube ink.  There is no color on the little mini as it is part of a pack of 9.  I cut the background to a 5″ square.

Step 2:  Stamp the grasses, pussy willows and birds from this stamp set:

Step 3:  Stamp the sentiment with this little stamp set:

Step 4:  Make a base card by scoring a pc. of 8.5 x 11″ White cardstock at 5.5″.  Fold as a book fold card and trim to a 5.5″ square.  Cut a 5.25″ sq. from Black cardstock and adhere it to the white base card.  Now adhere the stamped ombre card and That’s It!
