Summer school preview... 31st July 2010 part 2

The second part of the programme for the papercraft summer school are two cards which offer the opportunity to try out the cuttlebug, and also some stamping/colouring with foam pads to make a decorative background, topped with "innie" or "outie" decoupage.

Card 1 utilises the Bug, and a stamped image, coloured and cut out in an oval shape using nestabilities.

Card 2 has a choice of backgrounds, or topper. Both "innie" and "outie" images will be available. The background will either be stamped butterflies in complementary colours, or a sponged random effect, topped with a spritz of mica spray to add necessary "bling".

June 2010

There were two cards on the menu today, courtesy of Jackie...

The first was a bow fronted card, with a stamped and coloured image inside. Oval nestabilities were used to create the aperture, with a contrast colour card used behind the white base card. The image was coloured using promarkers, and there was a choice of five different images - small girl having a picnic, small girl watering flowers, small girl chasing butterflies, small boy collecting apples or a small boy fishing.

The second card was a black and white image, layered onto black and white card and using a black card base. The black layer card was embossed using a cuttlebug folder, to provide some interest.
