Its the summer holidays and I wanted to do some crafting with my daughter so we decided to have a go at marbling.
I don’t have any of the proper marbling inks so we went back to basics and used shaving foam and acrylic paint!
We made the collection of backgrounds!!
When it came to using the backgrounds I was a little more scuppered as they are just so….busy!!
Foe the above card I cut the Hero Arts Star Confetti Fancy die from Creative Expressions Midnight Blue Pearl card and used one of the backgrounds to back it.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Bright Rosa Birthday Words die set.
This card again uses the Midnight Blue Pearl card (which I love!) with a floral cover die that I bought from Ali Express. I wrapped some twine and added a bow and have left this card as it is. I didn’t want to add a sentiment to this one.
This card combines a cover die die cut I had already done and was just sitting on my desk so if it feels a bit thrown together then thats because it is!! Its the Hero Arts Hearts Confetti Cover die which I then I had cut a heart from.
I love the new Nordic Winter die from Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
It cuts into the card with no border so you can use it to make any size card (although its sized for a US A2 card size). I used mine on UK A6 card size and so had to cut it very close on the long edges, I think next time I’ll try it on 5×7 cards.
The die creates the most amazing confetti pieces which can either be paper pieced back in (as I have done above) or used to create other cards. I have seen some great other examples by the Sizzix design team that I want to try.
For my cards I used Creative Expressions Midnight Blue Pearl Foundation Cardstock and some general gold card from the kids stationery section at B&M!
The sentiment is from Crafters Companion Saras Signature Cute Christmas Metal Die and Stamp set.
I stamped with Stazon on the metallic card and white Izink pigment ink on the blue cardstock.
I found an old set of papers called Boho Chic that came with Making Cards Magazine (Feb 2018) and made the first card from a design in the magazine. (so annoyed by my foam tape behind the sentiment but nevermind!)
It was such a simple one that I decided I’d make a batch of them using the same panel style.
I spent the evening watching Love Island (don’t judge me!) and cutting up and glueing the panels together.
The large birthday sentiments are from a set of 3 by Woodware Stamps.
I used CraftUK 6×6 card blanks. The coloured card is cut to 4.5cm x 14cm, and the patterned paper to 4cm x 13.5cm.
I found an old (2011) Mojo Monday Sketch for a square card to use for this card.
The papers are from Making Cards Magazine (Feb 2018) Boho Chic Collection and the dreamcatcher die is from Love Cardmaking Issue 5 – also the Boho Chic Collection! The Happy Birthday die is by Crafters Companion.
