Make It Monday #146: Angled Backgrounds

Angled1

I really enjoyed Ashley’s video here demonstrating angled backgrounds. I decided to make my own stamped patterned strips for a few of the angled layers. Plaid backgrounds are so much fun to create and I used Papertrey Ink’s Super Stripes set to do the plaid and striped layers you can see in the card. I also used the sun and falling snow stamps from City Scenes to create other strips. The photo below shows them a little better.

I white heat-embossed the sentiment on the label to help make it stand out a little more against such a heavily patterned background. Sorry for the quality of the shots – I’m still experimenting with our new camera!

Monday Mood Board #24

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The beautiful shot below from the current WPlus9 Monday Mood Board challenge got me thinking about gift packaging options. I make my own handmade soap and these muslin bags are the perfect size to hold the soap bars. Of course they need to be stamped and personalised! The WPlus9 Woodland Wreaths set has to be one of the loveliest Christmas sets I’ve ever used – so much fun to layer the images and such a striking effect with minimal effort.

Below I also used the Woodland Wreaths stamps and coordinating die to create a simple hanging gift tag for a cellophane treat bag. This one will be a good option for my kids’ friends. And I also stamped onto a kraft cardboard box, another simple packaging idea.

Make It Monday #141 Adding Glitter with Heat & Stick Powder – Card 2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So here’s my second card using this week’s Make it Monday technique. I stamped one of the stripe images from PTI’s Super Stripes set and then followed the steps for adding the Heat & Stick powder and glitter (SU Dazzling Diamonds). Fun! I then used the adorable Lawn Fawn Winter Sparrows set for the main image, coloured with Copics. I wanted the oval matt to also have some bling to match the striped background, so used the Versamark ink pad directly on the edge of the oval piece and followed the same technique to add the glitter.
