Making the most of what you have

My penultimate card for Imagine That! Digis by Kris is the one I made for Mothering Sunday. This time I have only used papers, no image.

Materials used: SAM_2642(watermarked)
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Bella’s Beauties: Romance Set 1 Digi Papers
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Bella’s Beauties: Satin Fabrics
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
white square card blank made into a twisted easel
Copic pens
Copic re-inkers in the same colours as the pen
white glossy card
X-Press It card

The inside of the card is lined with pink paper printed from the Satin Fabrics set.

The mat for the main image is made using the re-inkers from the pens and blending solution on a felt pad on a blending tool.

The coloured flower is made from two layers. Having sized the main image to the correct size for the card blank I copied it then croped it so that I was left with just the flower I wanted to focus on. I managed to arrange the printing on one sheet of A5 X-Press It card so that I had the main image and two copies of the single flower.

It just goes to show you that even if all you have is some designer papers you can still make a good card from them, especially floral ones like the Romance Set.

This month Imagine That! Digis by Kris is celebrating it’s third birthday. There are lots of events taking place and freebies to be grabbed so why not head on over and take a look. Don’t forget there is also the monthly Payground Challenge and the theme this time is Birthdays.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    This is lovely paper, and you’ve used it beautifully in this shaped card. I never know how to present the pretty designs in so many papers, so end up, hating to cut into it. This beautiful pattern has turned into a perfectly stunning card, and just right for the holiday. Well done, Pippa. TFS & hope your Mother’s Day was just grand. TFS & Hugs
