"Just for Sandra" and a surprise from Magenta's Blog

Sandra was unable to attend the 'Grays of Spring' class the other day, so I am posting the pics of the cards we made so she can use the class kit.

Tape the ribbon to the backside of the die-cut and adhere to the
card top BEFORE you tie the bow; the die-cut can be somewhat fragile
and break if you're not careful. The Peddler's Pack image is stamped on the special
Copic blending cardstock. The Copic colors are:  V01 (Heath); RB1 (Rose Pink);
and G40 (Dim Green). Use rough brush strokes so you're not covering the
images totally with color. Place dots of glue under the curved parts of the
die-cut to keep them secure.

Glossy Accent the two sets of petal punch-outs; when dry, layer and attach to card as shown. Lift
the petals up to make them more dimensional; the glazing will remain pliable. Use whatever colored
pencils you prefer on the LaBlanche stamped image but these are what I used on the two birds:
(LEFT Bird:  Blue Violet Lake; Violet Blue; Process Red (more like a hot pink).
RIGHT Bird:  Spanish Orange; Spring Green; Muted Turquoise; Aquamarine.) For the leaves and
limbs:  Limepool; Moss Green; Light Umber. For the blueberries:  Ultramarine.
Adhere the white die cut to the gray cardstock; trim the gray cardstock
closely to the white. Magenta Peel-Off straight trim around the edge of the card.

Fill in the outside trim line of the flower petals with gold metallic Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
Cut out the Hero Arts flower image.  Layer card with gray velvet paper, the two die-cuts and the flower image.

The Magenta image is stamped onto the special Copic blending cardstock with
Memento ink. Copic colors:  RV000 (Pale Purple -- looks like very pale pink); RV 13
(Tender Pink); RV06 (Cerise); blend with Copic Colorless Blending Pen.
Leaves:  G82 (Spring Dim Green); YG 17 (Grass Green). Background:  C-1 (Cool Gray No. 1);
C-2 (Cool Gray No. 2); C-5 (Cool Gray No. 5). Layer the floral cardstock; silver
metallic cardstock; stamped image; velvet paper die-cut frame. Corners on the floral and
silver metallic cardstock are rounded with 1/4-inch rounded-corner punch.

We missed you in class. I hope you enjoy putting these cards together.

Friday, 8 April, 2011 Carte Chevalet 3D / Pop-Up Easel Card

Materials :
Magenta Papers Printemps Passion Collection : ME210, ME212, ME214, ME215
Magenta Stamp : Singing Bird (40.304.M)
Un petit oiseau chante pour toi – French (07.552.F)
Can be replaced in English by : A little bird told me… (07.449.G)
Magenta Peel Off’s : Deco Accents – Silver (POM3330S)
Magenta Self-Adhesive Cork : 3D Flowers (CORK03)
Color Pencils
3D Foam
Glossy Accents
Light green Cardstock

Step 1
Stamp the Singing Bird Stamp on your papers of different colors.
1 Pink, 1 Light Green, 2 Yellow and 1 Dark Green.

Step 2
Accentuate the outlines of the stamped shapes with your colored pencils.
Pink Paper : The frame and the notes.
Light Green : The leaves.
Yellow Paper : The Bird, The wing and the beak.

Step 3
Assemble all the cut elements in 3D.
A little hint, cut the leaves as you go; it will make it easier to place them at the right spot. For the notes, it’s easy to fix them using Glossy Accents.

Step 4
Assemble the front of your card, complete with the stamp 'A little bird told me…' and assemble with brads at the tips.
For the back you’ll need a card stock 2 time the length of the front; you will score it at ½ and another time at ¾.

Step 5
Fold your cardstock towards the inside and affix the smallest end panel at the bottom of your front.

Step 6
Embellish the bottom of the card with Peel Off’s and a 3D flower
accentuated with a brad.

Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.
