Make It Monday #146: Angled Backgrounds


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!

Stamps: Papertrey ink Background Basics Super Stripes, Papertrey Ink City Scenes, SU Apothecary Art
Ink: SU Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple
Cardstock: SU Whisper White and retired DSP
Other: SU Labels framelits, white embossing powder, white gel pen

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


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.
