You Are Wonderfully Wonderful!
Hi BPM Fans!
How are you all doing? I think the last month has seen some progress forward for us all so I hope everyone is doing well!
We have a great new challenge this month - perfect for using ANY of your Blank Page Muse Stamps!
We have a great "Inspiration" Picture for you to interpret however you want!
I love the colours on this palette plus the beachy feel especially as it's winter here in the Southern Hemisphere and thinking of the beach warms me up!
We look forward to how you feel inspired so make sure you link up to our challenge!
Hope you enjoy my creation for today!
Blank Page Muse Stamps: Mermaid Fantasy Narwhal Set designed by Donna Gray
Black Ink Pad
Colouring tools of your choice
Acetate cut to size (14cm square when folded used for this card)
Plain Coloured Card
Big Kick or Similar
Nesting Die Cuts
Embellishments of your choice including fibres, charms etc.
General tools and adhesives including scissors, small hole punch, double sided tape, glue etc.
Stamp, colour and fussy cut your images. Stamp your sentiment on one of the die cuts from the next step!
Die cut and emboss your card and paper as shown in the picture below.
Layer all your shaped cut outs and adhere together as shown below.
Next step is to adhere your little die cut "nests" to the acetate card base. Place your front "nest" centrally on the acetate card front, place another on the inside front of the card on the back of the front nest - see how it "hides" the tape back of the front piece - repeat with the very back nest ie. line up with the front nests and finish off with your sentiment stamped nest on the card inside once again lined up with the back nest. Sounds confusing! But you can see that everything through the acetate all "backs/lines up" each other neatly on the acetate so all you see when the card is folded s the front nest.
Use your small hole punch to punch "half" holes on the spine of your card so you can add some fancy twine/wool/ribbon. Thread your fibres through and tie a bow. If you want to add some little charms or beads to the ends of your fibre for interest you can.
Add your focal stamped image to the card front along with any bits & pieces you like.
Your card is now finished! Remember you can use any shaped nesting dies you like and whatever sentiment you need to suit any occasion! Love the versatility of this card and the clear acetate effect always looks so great!
Thanks for joining me today - I hope you feel inspired to get creating!
