A card tutorial from Elena

After cleaning my table I always find some leftovers and scraps that are worth to be saved for the next projects.
So here is an easy tutorial on creating pretty card just using everything left on your table.
CardMainElena
  I collected some paper scraps, fabric strip and the pink flowers I didn’t use, I added the other one.
CardTutorialSupplies
1. Add some collage work on your background with the scrap papers, fabric, lace trims.
CardTutorial2
2. Cover everything with gesso, then mist some parts with your favorite colors.
CardTutorial3
4. I added a big flower, made of feathers and threads. Fascinating Mocha, I brushed it with gesso in one direction, so the feathers are collected in one.
CardTutorial4
5. Also I colored the feathers too with gesso, added some burgundy petals. Remove the center from the Fairy floss – soft pink , put it in to the middle of the feathers , and the other part just hide under the big flower.
  add some embellishments.

  And here you go with an elegant card.

VIDEO CLASS with Elena

Hello, hello! Well who doesn’t love to watch to see just how a clever designer puts together a masterpiece – especially when it looks so complicated at first glance, but when shown little by little, we see suddenly that we can achieve something similar – at the very least, we can give it a go.

Let’s see how Elena put this beautiful canvas together.

Here’s a few close-ups for you to study if you feel like you can tackle something on a canvas too.

Creating a Peek-A-Boo Window Effect with Trudi

Hi Everyone,

I recently created this layout and wanted to share the creative process for recreating the ‘peek a boo’ window effect which frames my photo.

MHC_Layout_Life is Sweet_Trudi Harrison

MHC Products: Purple Vine, Pink Razzles, Purple Razzles Card Pack, Sarah (Pack), White Tweeny Weenies, Melon Petite Rose

Believe Patterned Papers – Lace & Frames (Cardstock)

*****

The middle frame from the top row of the Believe Frames (cardstock) has been adapted:

believe-frames

MHC_Layout_Life is Sweet_Detail 3_Trudi Harrison

First fussy cut the frame element– With scissors or craft knife, cut around the outer edges but do not remove the centre piece.

To create a window effect with a frame – Trim down the middle of the centre piece of the frame with a craft knife. With scissors or a craft knife cut along the top and bottom edges. Score along the left and right inside edges and fold the pieces back to create a window ‘shutter’effect.

Position and attach your photo in the middle.

I have another example of where I have done similarly - This was also the project recently taught at the Ladies of the Manor Retreat:

MHC Retreat Class Layout 'Thank You'_Detail 2_Trudi Harrison

A slightly smaller frame fussy cut from the Believe cardstock was adapted:
