2015-10-17; October Shoebox bonus project & review


As I mentioned in the last post, I had one day off this past week for a bank holiday. I used the time wisely and made a bonus project for the ladies to create for our October Shoebox craft night.

I decided to make it simple stamping as all of the cards I’ve presented for the ladies to make for the past few months have all been “Cricut-ed.”

We made our own background paper by inking a stencil; stamping text; sponging; using bubble wrap as a stamp and finally over-stamping with a large floral image. In the next photo you can see the hint of the stencil but you can really see the bubble wrap lol!

as a final step in this nearly one layer card; we added champagne colored glitter to the flower blossoms.

Each card turned out totally different and unique because of the hand made background paper.

    You created a wonderful background for the lovely card! If I hadn’t read the description, I would have thought it was a dp that you used for the background. Nice job!
