Hi friends! Happy to report that I’m feeling much better after my bad fall on the ice. The muscles are relaxing and I might even try to go for a walk again this weekend. We’ll see. I definitely don’t want to take another tumble. We also have plans to go out for dinner with my cousin and her boyfriend this weekend. A Valentine’s double date if you will. I’m really looking forward to seeing them (it’s been WAY too long) and of course a fancy dinner out too!
Ok, let’s chat about this card. The Rose Garden Thinlits are incredibly beautiful, and so intricate. Every time I use them I’m blown away by their beauty. They’re also perfect to do some paper piecing to look like stained glass.
This did take a little time, but it’s so worth it. The results are absolutely stunning!
Step by step:
- Choose a framelit, thinlit, or die with a line image, filled in with smaller sections of negative space.
- Die cut entire image in Basic Black Cardstock. This will be your outline.
- Continue to die cut the same image with several other colours of cardstock and use the negative space pieces to fill in the image.
Want to learn this technique? Or maybe there’s a few products in the Occasions Catalogue that you’d like to play with? Get a few of your Calgary friends together and I’ll bring the stamping supplies! Hosting a stamping gathering is super fun. Plus, I always spoil my hostesses. Contact me to reserve a date on my calendar!
Have a great day my friends.
