Happy Birthday Little Lamb :D


Another sweet spring themed card, a Birthday card this time, using the versatile Spring Garden stamp and die set free with issue 144 of Papercraft Essentials :D The picket fence die in this set is fantastic, I've wanted a picket fence die for ages, and I had so much fun playing with it :D It's great because you can use it as the generic white picket fence, or you can use ProMarkers to colour it and give it a wood effect like I have here, or you can even snip it into pieces and use it to create other things, here I snipped off one piece to create a gate, but in the magazine I show you step by step how I created a crate, and also a wooden box, a little sign post, and I even used all the panels separately to create a frame on one card too :D So make sure you get your copy, I've linked to moremags.com in my list of main products below :D

To create my ink blended cloudy sky, I used a piece of Doflex which I cut into a random cloud like border with scissors (I created this AGES ago, and a bigger one too, I thought I'd use it quite often, so that's why I made it from Doflex, but you could just use printer paper, then chuck it after a few uses :D) Then I simply dragged some ink over the mask to give a white cloud with blue sky behind :D You see me do this twice in the video below as I decided the Peacock Feathers wasn't dark enough, so I came back in with Mermaid Lagoon as that fitted in with the intensity of the ProMarkers better :D I also added some Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Inks to the Pastel Green Foundations card I had used to cut the grassy border too :D Then I simply arranged all my pieces, and you can see in the video how in-decisive I was at deciding where to place all the Hydrangeas lol :D Hope you liked the card :D :D :D
