Tissue Paper Card

Today I am sharing a card I made for the StampTV challenge - Get Out The Tissue and the Mod Squad Challenge - Water or Sky.

I started with a piece of blue tissue paper, misted it with water and crumpled it up. I carefully unfolded it and embossed it with an embossing folder that I got with a magazine. It was part of a set of three called Spring. After the tissue paper dried, I went over the embossing with a Ranger white gel pen to make the clouds stand out.

I took a piece of green tissue paper and stamped the flowers (from Gina K Designs Happy Birthday to You set) in VersaMark ink. I sprinkled Jewel Glitter Ritz Micro Fine Glitter in Deep Purple and Kiwi Green on the flowers and stems and rubbed it into the ink.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut the ends and layered it onto a piece of ribbon. I attached the tissue paper onto cardstock, wrapped the ribbon and attached it to a piece of blue cardstock. I then attached this to a white card base.

Triple Time with Patterned Paper

The challenge this week on StampTV is to make a card that has different layers with the pattern continuing through the layers. This video shows the technique. I decided to combine it with the Mod Squad challenge to use patterned paper.

I selected ovals for the smaller shapes and cut out three, one slightly bigger than the other two out of the patterned paper. After deciding where to place them I stuck them down with a tiny piece of tape on the back of each. I stamped the flowers and leaves. I matted the ovals and taped them back down matching the pattern that I had stamped.

I cut out a tag, stamped the sentiment and a few leaf parts, sponged the edge and threaded a piece of ribbon through. I matted the background, taped the ribbon on to the back and taped the whole thing to a white card base.
