Hello :) Just popping by to share some cards and a little tutorial.
First card is for OTR. All you have to do is use fabric on your card.
Heres a little tutorial on how I used fabric on my card.
(Sorry not the best photos, I was creating at night!!)
Step1 : First I got out some of y vintage fabric from my stash. Because this fabric is 100% cotton it tears easily, so I tore a stripe about 2.5inches. By also tearing my fabric it gives the edges a little fray edge instead of a neat cut edge. With me there?? LOL.... to start to tear, just snip the end with scissors and then tear all you like!!
Step 2: I then used my sewing machine and stitched a long stitch along one side. Dont reverse stitch the ends and make sure you leave a long tail of thread when you finish.. you will see why in a second.
HINT: use a different colour thread to your bobbin.
Step 3. Now using the bottom thread (the bobbin colour). Pull it gently so that it starts to gather. You might need to move the gathers with your fingers done the fabric and even them out. But really, its all personal choice how you like it :)
Step 4: Now we will create a little circle with the fabric now gather. If you like you can stitch over the gather to hold it, for you like me, just create the circle and hope for the best!! tee hee.. Not add either a little glue to the ends or machine stitch it together.
Step 5: Now layer the fabric on your card. For me I choose to put it under my flower and then add some glue to the edges and sprinkled glitter.
Pretty cute uh!!
Hope this inspires you to try something different with fabric!
Second card is for the Prima PPP. Something a little Easter like.
I am totally smitten by those cute little Easter bunny resins. I had to create a little card with them in April's soft pastel palette and add a little sprinkle of glitter. Perfect!
Thats it for me.
I have already eaten a burger, a hot dog, a sausage... yes, its a playdoh kitchen at the moment :)))
