Make It Monday

Hello! Happy New Year!

It is Day 7 of my 12 Days of Giftaways today, you can find all the details at the end of this blog post. However, it is also Monday… which of course means it is time for a Make It Monday video tutorial!

I have a special video for you today… after my blog post last Wednesday for Inspire.Create.Challenges. I had already made two cards with the current sketch challenge, and I shared my tips for using a sketch last week, but I wanted to share my process with you too.

Make It Monday Inspire.Create.Challenges Sketch Challenge using Coffee Cafe from Stampin' Up!

This card was the first card I made with THIS sketch… and although I like it, the card I shared with the Inspire.Create.Challenges Design Team is my favourite of the bunch! This is also the first card I have made with the Coffee Cafe Stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups framelits.

When I first saw / Designed the sketch I saw Embossing paste in the top horizontal piece. Embossing Paste is a great way of adding that little something extra to your cards, a bit of extra dimension and some texture. I coloured it here using a drop of Crumb Cake reinker, for a tone on tone effect, but you can leave it white for something a little bolder.

The white splatter on this card was created by mixing a drop of Whisper White Craft Ink Re-inker with water on an Aqua-painter, then banging the painter off a pen to create splatter… I LOVE doing this but it does make a bit of a mess. I made some Christmas tags at the last minute last week and did the same thing… and managed to cover my desk, tool caddy, phone and myself in White splatter!

Ok, so the card I made on the video uses the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set and coordinating Designer Series Paper. This stamp set features in my 2018 Birthday Card Club … Club sign ups are closing really soon (7th January!) so sign up this week to grab your place!

I kept this simpler for this card, letting that Designer Series Paper do all the talking! The Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper features some fabulous photo-real birthday images as well as some really fun generic patterns in fun colour combinations!
