Casing the Catty Card 3

Here is the 3rd card I made using the Epic Celebration Sale-a-Bration stamp set.  Just one of a few items free with each $90 spent on Stampin Up Products.  I used the image layout on pg 63 of the main Catalogue for my inspiration.  Full list of items used are at the end of the post with a link to my online store should you wish to purchase any.

I cut a piece of Dapper Denium Card 10 x 14.3 cm and sponged around the edge and adhered to the base card also of Dapper Denim.   I then stamped the Plimsol image on a scrap of white card in Dapper Denim ink using watered down Dapper Denim ink and a dry aqua marker.  I then fussy cut around the image.  I stamped the senitment twice, once on Pool Party and Once on Lemon Lime Twist and cut these out by hand.  I mounted the runners and the Lemon Lime image with dimentionals used double sided tape for the Pool Party words.  I adhered these to a piece of Whisper White 8.5 x 6.5cm and then attached a piece of lemon lime twist 6 x 8.5 cm angled behind.  This was then adhered to the base card, super easy and super quick.  You could just stamp the runners directly onto the white card if you didn't want to fussy cut the image.

Bottles and Bubbles

Today's card I made for a workshop I did today.  I was inspired by my blog hop card and an image I saw on Pintrest for the bottle, BUT I forgot to pin it and now I can't find it.  I hate it when I do that but still I keep forgetting.  Click on the follow me button to see all my blog entries, you can also like my Craft page on facebook a link which is HERE.Just click on LIKE to see all my updates.

Firstly I embossed the bubbles and rings with clear embossing powder in opposite corners.and then layered the Early Espresso piece centrally.  I also embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder onto red card stock and cut out with the smallest shape and the slightly large one in white.  After I adhered the red to the white I trimmed away the white on the side.

I cut out the smallest bottle in vellum and sponged/daubed espresso ink on to the image up the neck leaving a section at the top.  If you want a clean edge to the top of the contents of the bottle, just put a piece of card or paper down and sponge over.  I then used Bermuda bay ink which I daubed the top of the bottle to give that greeny blue glass colour.   Then using my chalk pen I drew a line down the side of the bottle and around the base a fraction to imitate the light shining on the bottle.  I rubbed my finger over it to soften it a bit. 

I cut the straw out of whisper white cardstock and drew stripes down it with my red marker.  Next time I would do them diagonally.  To adhere the straw to the card I put some tape down the back of the bottle and stuck the straw to the back of the bottle, it's easier than putting adhesive on the straw.  I then adhered the bottle to the Oval.

I punched out the bermuda bay strip with the triple banner punch and adhered it centrally behind the oval piece.  I then popped some dimentionals on the back and popped it onto the Card.

I love how the vellum allows the straw to show through making it look more authentic as a bottle.
