STEP BY STEP Mountain Air – Layout Tutorial

August 20, 2018

“The Mountain Air collection bought all the memories of living in Colorado and my husband fishing in the rivers throughout the mountains right back, so I had to dig out an old photo of him in his favourite fishing spot.
A absolutely perfect collection for that part of our life” 
Kasia Leach – Design Team

Card Making Christmas HOW TO: Sparkle step by step

HOW TO: Make a Tri-Shutter Card

August 10, 2018

Add a little SPARKLE into someone’s day by sending them one of these gorgeous
interactive Tri- Shutter Cards similar to the ones that Alicia McNamara has made for us here.

Follow these Step by Step instructions and you will discover these aren’t as difficult to create as they look
but ever so effective and eye catching, especially using the gorgeous SPARKLE collection with its rose
gold foiled elements like on the following pages.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:
STEP ONE – Make the Card Base

  • From a 12″ x 12″ piece of cardstock – white is a great colour to use as a base
  • Cut it in half so that you have two 6 x 12″ rectangles.  (this will make two cards)
  • Score each card piece at 2 inches, 4 inches, 8 inches and 10 inches vertically.
  • Score horizontally at 2 inches and 4 inches as per the diagram below.

  • Cut your card horizontally following the red cut lines as per the diagram below starting at two inches from the top and two inches from the left-hand side and stopping two inches from the right-hand side.
  • Repeat at four inches from the top.

  • Fold your card into mountains (folding towards you) and valleys (folds away from you) as per example below.

 

STEP TWO – Decorate the Card Base

  • Cut two    6″ x 2″ rectangles of printed paper to cover the left and right sides of the cards
  • Cut six      2″ x 2″ squares of printed paper to cover each of the squares
  • Cut three  4″ x 2″rectangles of printed paper for the middle sections.

TIP: Cut the above pieces slightly smaller to give a white border on each section if desired.

Download full instructions to recreate the SPARKLE tri shutter cards shown below HERE.

 

STEP THREE – Embellishing the Cards

  • Create three card bases as per the above instructions
  • Use  a combination of the paper gold foiled papers LUSTER, GLISTENING and ILLUMINATE  and cover the small squares and inside rectangles as per the downloadable instructions or as desired using coordinating papers

P2594 LUSTER

 

  • Use the top three 4″ x 3″ rectangles and matte onto white cardstock
  • Fussy cut poinsettias from GLINT.  Cut each in half and attach behind each sentiment using foam tape to add dimension.
  • Adhere these sentiments to the card fronts using foam tape
  • Further decorate cards as desired using a combination of collectables, rhinestone strips and ribbon.

 

TIP:  You could keep one of the rectangles in the middle blank to write a personal greeting or message.

Anthology Jowilna Nolte Kaiser Mists Mixed Media step by step

Butterfly Sampler Box with Mixed Media Effects by Jowilna Nolte

June 26, 2018

Hello everyone, Jowilna on the blog today with another Technique Tuesday showing you how I created this fun anthology butterfly sampler box.
This range is perfect for creating memory boxes, but I wanted to make something very specific – the kind of thing you will find in the office of a professor.

step 1 – Trim patterned paper to fit inside the wooden tray. I added a piece to the bottom to fit into the length.
Add stenciling detail to the bottom edge using texture paste and leave to dry. Add sewing around the edge.

step 2 – Cut a piece of polystyrene to fit into the bottom of the wooden tray and secure using double sided tape.

Step 3 – Use Kaisercraft mists in olive and coffee and mist the entire piece of paper.
Mix the two colours to create a leather look effect on the paper. Leave to dry or dry with a heat gun.

Step 4 – Add double sided tape to the back of the paper piece and then adhere it to the polystyrene inside the tray.

Step 5 – Cut out butterflies from patterned paper as well as foliage. Ink the edges to hide any cutting lines.

Step 6 – Adhere sticker sentiment to filmstrip sticker and trim to size. Use your scissors to distress the edges.

Step 7 – Adhere the butterflies as well as the foliage and sentiment. Layer two butterflies on top of each other using foam tape.

Step 8 – Use decorative pins to add some interest to the butterflies. Cut them shorter and then pin them through the butterflies.
Print fig. sentiments and adhere below each butterfly.

I love how the mists just add so much shimmer and warmth to the patterned paper and project.
So easy to create a butterfly sampler box perfect for the aspiring lepidopterist {a person who studies or collects moths and butterflies}

Until next time – why not try and make your own sampler box using this easy to re-create leather look using texture and inks. Then add some of your favourite images and sentiments
to create a fun home decor project for your office or studio.
Live Creatively – Love Jowilna
