Hi everyone! I’m excited to show you some cards I’ve made for the Made With Love Design Team. Made With Love is a craft store in Singapore. If you’re living in Singapore, drop by the store! It’s at a mall called Somerset 313. All products showcased are available at the Made With Love store.
Today’s set of cards were really fun to make and also a bit of a challenge. I’ve challenged myself to not use any stamps! :O But I hope this can inspire those of you who would like to make cards but do not want to invest in stamps. Enjoy!
For all the cards I’m working with a pack of die cut shapes from Kaisercraft – High Tide. So, firstly, I’ve taken out all the shapes and so that I can see clearly the various shapes that they offered.
Clustering all the small images.
Group all the little images you can find in your pack to cluster them. Glue some of them flatly on the card and some images you can add dimensional adhesive to pop them up 🙂 To bring out the colours of the die-cuts, I’ve chosen to add Ranger Stickles to some parts of the images.
Customising the die cuts.
I’ve chosen those “emoticons” and party hats for my next card. I’ve cut them apart and only use 3 faces because there are only 3 hats. I’ve then glue the hats on the faces.
Oh! I’ve added some colours to the card base with Worn Lipstick & Wild Honey Distress Inks and embellished the card with white dots using the Ranger Enamel Accents.
There were some polaroid type of die-cut that you can take apart. I took advantage of the die cut by turning it into a shaker. To add a bit more colour, I’ve use another polaroid shape on top of the first one. Again, I’ve embellished the card with white dots using the Ranger Enamel Accents and the background paper is from Echo Park.
Making your own patterned paper.
I’ve used this method many times with my stamps but I thought I’d do it with all the die-cut shapes in the pack. Gathering all the shapes I want, I’ve arranged them and glue them directly on a piece of paper. I’ve also purposely let them hang out of the paper so I can cut of the access and it gives a look as it you’ve cut from a piece of a bigger patterned paper. I’ve also covered the entire “SMILE” die cut with the Ranger Enamel Accents.
Till next time!
