The Makers Superstore BOGOF offer on the activation cards has ended….
So if you treated youself to some of the cards while the offer was on, you should hopefully have them in your hands now so let the Disney crafting fun begin! (PS they work on both the CM series and the DX series!)
I’m still playing with the Cinderella/Ariel activation card….still got lots of projects I want to make from this one! Here are a couple of cards I made this weekend:
The thing I love about the Cinderella/Ariel card is that the patterns on there are so versatile….the patterns on there are suitable for Princesses of all ages you can see. 🙂
It’s coming up to school report time…and my two teenage Princesses have excelled theirselves yet again 🙂 so I knew I needed to make two gorgeous cards that I could slip some money in so they can treat theirselves during the Easter holidays.
The shoe design from the activation card was a perfect fit for my project – sorry for the pun – I couldn’t resist! :-
The cards were very simple to make –
I first inked up a piece of cardstock slightly bigger than I needed.
To get the rainbow effect, I used just FOUR colours of Distress Oxide inkpads:
Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.
I used a very simple ink blending technique – inking each colour in rainbow sequence overlapping each colour as I went – this gave me the full rainbow spectrum, seven beautiful vibrant colours in total.
While I was waiting for the ink panel to dry. I just lined multiple of the shoes up in rows, mirror imaging every other row, and added a rectangle to this. I also duplicated the rectangle so I had two of the same size.
I then cut out the shoe panel from the rainbow background, and a gold background from the other rectangle. and glued them together.
The “congrats” sentiment is a built in sentiments from the SDX machine – pattern number LO-AC07. I cut this out three times, glued them together and covered them with Glossy Accents.
On the inside of the card, I used pattern BA-A140 as a pocket that I can pop some cash into. I used the Brother SDX calligraphy kit (which is on offer at the moment at Makers Superstore btw!) to write the word “Enjoy” onto this.
For the second card, I cut another shoe panel in black from the Makers Superstore range of pearlescent cardstock – (it’s absolutely gorgeous card, pearlescent both sides and coloured to the core – cuts on the machine like a hot knife through butter!) and simply pieced in the remaning rainbow shoes that was the waste from my original panel.
I’d love to see what projects you’re making – so please leave me a comment!
Happy cutting! 🙂
