Cardmaking step by step
I have decided that I would share my "talents" (
which aren't talents really...just pure luck
) to the rest of you out there who either Scrapbook or do make Cards.
In other words...be prepared for a long post! :)
And please bare with me...wasn't easy shooting and creating at the same time. Plus to remember to shoot after I did one section of the creating....think I need an assistant!
Anyway here goes:
I have a love for Ranger Products, Distress pads and Perfect Pearl. So here is how I do a normal card step by step.
First I start of with a Tag or a plain white paper cut to size.
I then choose two shades from my stash of Distress Inkpads and begin with the lighter shade.
I move in circular motions using a foampad (
a makeup sponge will work too
), applying as much as I feel is okay.
Then I take the darker shade and apply that in a circular motion around the Tag to create a depth.
After I am done with the Distress Inkpads I blend water and Perfect Pearl powder in a little spray.
You only need a knifetip of powder in the bottles I have.
I then spray the Tag to get a shimmer look to it.
This is a golden shimmer.
I have a heatgun to warm up and dry the Tag after I have sprayed it with Perfect Pearl.
using a regular hairdryer works too
Not sure if you can see it here, but this is the Shimmer look I was talking about above.
After it is all dried up I stamp the Tag with whatever design i feel like.
I use the darker shade of Distress inkpads for this one.
Here is a sample of the finished Tag.
I made one in blue aswell to show you the versatilty of using these products.
I cut the eylelet part of the Tag off before I mount it on a card. You can leave it on, but I usually cut it off.
Here are the finished cards!
All done in under 30 minutes, with the shooting and all. :)
I sometimes add flowers or a ribbon to the card, but on these I just used some White Pearls to give it some pop and chalked the sides with a brown distress inkpad.
All you need is a bit of imagination and you can go far!
