Valentines Inspiration

Finishing up some last minute Valentine’s cards? Jenny has a fabulous one to show your love!

By Jenny Gropp

Grab your Perfect Layer Rulers and some fun paper and stamps and get ’em done! Layers a simple way to really give your card a little extra WOW… without a lot of work!

I stamped the striped heart using Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White paper.  Above are the Copic Markers I used to color it.

Use layers in-between your different patterned paper to help give definition and add interest. Foam tape helps adds dimension in between the layers.

Perfect Layer Rulers are the perfect got o tool to add a lot of interest to your card very easily! Small little layers in between those patterns help break it up and give it a clean feel. The small black lines are 1/16″ in size. This was a left over piece from my card front. Always using my leftovers for the inside! Finished card is an A2.

Floral Delight

Today we’re showing the results of using the Perfect Air Brush. Roxie has a created a floral delight for us!

Color the images and then cut out, add Stickles to the yellow center and berries, then set aside to dry.

Sponge the panel with dusty concord and spun sugar.

Add the harlequin design with the Perfect Air Brush and metallic marker using a stencil.

Using the dusty concord ink to stamp three smaller flowers on both sides and the bottom.

Add the raised flourish with molding paste. After cleaning the stencil place it over the design again and ink up with VersaMark then heat embossed with glittered white powder.

Next using the Perfect Air Brush and the Grey Flannel marker spritz the panel to add more texture.

Using the 1/6″ Perfect Layers Mini and Perfect Cutting Mat with craft knife cut a silver border around the image panel.

Cut the white lace from shimmer card stock, cut a piece of pink shimmer card stock and weave through the white to act as ribbon. Tacky glue the lace to the card panel then attach the panel to the white card base.

Attach the large flower with foam tape and then arrange and glue the smaller flower and leaves.

Drop some Pewter spray stain on the card.
