Morning all, how you enjoying the sun? way too much for me, but it is nice to see the blue Sky
so its Saturday and that means Visible Image dt post and this week i have 2 of my samples made for the show tomorrow on Create and craft, launching the new sets and boy are they fab!
the show is on at 2pm Sunday make sure you don't miss it because last show had so many sell outs people missed their chance to grab the stamps, or you can pop over before hand and take a look and order before the show , then you can just enjoy watching the wonderful demos show details here http://www.createandcraft.tv/ShowGridView.aspx?showId=2376368
OK so my samples for today and first up is Edward is Immortal
i started with a red base card, and matt and layered 3 different papers which i had printed out then distressed all the edges, on each layer i have stamped something from the set, bringing all the layers together.
I cut a fancy label shape mat for Edward, distressed the edges and stamped with the rose from the Isabella Lost Love set, then i have stamped the drips and added glossy accents along the top of the fancy label, Edward was stamped in tuxedo black memento ink then coloured with pro markers, cut out and added to the card with sticky pads, then i stamped the word Forever, and cut out with a scalpel and again used glossy accents. Finally to make the rose, i stamped the image several times and coloured with pro markers, then i cut and decoupaged, i made a stem and some leaves and finished it off with a black bow.
next i have used both Sets to create this easel card
the whole idea of these sets is you can mix and match, and i think this card shows how great they work together.
Its an 8 x 8 easel, mat with cold card, then a lush green pattern paper, then a smaller gold mat , and another green paper, topped with a strip of gold, another paper and finally a gold scallop and pale green circle of paper which i have stamped all over with the bats from the Edward set, this layout is repeated on the base without the scallop circle and the addition of the sentiment panel , the word Love is from the Isabella set, and the 'is forever' is from the Edward set.
I then stamped and coloured the rose 5 times keeping 3 as they are and cutting 2 down to make buds. i chose this beautiful lace with the green velvet ribbon threaded through it, made some leaves and added to the card, then of course the stars of the piece, Edward and Isabella, have been stamped , coloured to compliment the papers and cut out , then added to the scallop mat.
you really don't want to miss this show, the dt have made some amazing samples and there will be wonderful demos, so hope you join us for a great hr of crafting yumminess from Visible Image.
