Pillow top background and Roses
I have a pretty card to share with you today. I subscribe to Stamp TV and every week Gina K shares a video of a new technique. This past week it was to make this pillow top background paper, HERE is a link to that video. I love the way it really looks like a pillow top mattress, of course hers looks a lot better than mine but I am pleased nonetheless.
The roses and leaves I cut using the CTMH Artiste cartridge. I cut them out of white card stock then inked the edges with Cotton Candy ink before I rolled them up. After they were rolled I sprayed them with Tattered Angels to add a bit more color. The swirls I cut using my Cameo, I am still excited at how the Silhouette Cameo cuts so cleanly even on the thinnest pieces without tearing them.
We all know how frustrated we have been trying to cut something like this with our Cricuts.
Check this out.
I added a few dots of sparkle glitter to the swirls, but not sure I like the way it looks. Also added some glitter to the edges of the flowers. Recently I was in a stick pin swap on the Circle message board so I started to create stick pins to use on my cards, so I made a simple one to stick behind the flowers.
The white strip across the front I made using one of MS punches, I think this one is my favorite one.
I will share pictures of the pins I received and the ones I made in a later post.
Thank you for stopping by today, please leave me a comment and let me know you where here.
