Here is the second birthday exploding box made a few months ago for 18 year old twins. I used the We R Memory Keepers explosion board, making 4 boxes in total. The small inner box was fixed so it could be used for adding a small keepsake rather than folding down.
This month we would like you to use flowers. It’s coming into winter where I live but there are still a few flowers around to enjoy. We also welcome Nancy as our guest designer for this month. We’d love for you to pop over to her blog and leave her some love.
It’s so easy to use the Pinkfresh Studio “You are my Favourite” layering stencils (there is also a matching stamp set). You can get a few different looks by using other mediums…texture pastes, foil, embossing powders…but I stuck with a simple distress oxide ink blending and keeping the colours simple too.
I blended the Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn inks over white cardstock and die cut the word ‘You’ once in each colour so I could have the outline and inside different colours.
I applied adhesive to the back of the die cuts with my Xyron Sticker Maker and adhered to the background.
The rest of the sentiment was stamped in Versafine Clair pigment ink.
I cut down the background so I could have a 1/4″ edge around and I toyed with the idea of popping up the background with craft foam onto a coloured card base but in the end decided to keep it all white. You can still add dimension with white by just adding layers.
I added a few deep pink diamantés to the centres of the little flowers to give an extra textural element.
I hope you’ve been inspired to join us in this months challenge.
Woohoo…I’ve found a super new way to use up my ever growing stack of patterned paper. It’s the easy peasy to use We R Memory Keepers explosion board. I know I could muck around with rulers etc and make my own but why waste my time…this board is fabulous.
I’m back for this month challenge over at AAA Birthday after having a crazy last month…family matters have to take precedence but after a number of weeks out of my craft room I have realised how much making cards and crafting fills my almost empty reservoir up! This month I went all girly with my DT card. Pop on over to the AAA Birthday blog and see all the neat inspiration our design team has come up with and we especially welcome Karthika as our Guest Designer this month.
Hi everyone. Age is just a number isn’t it…at AAA Birthday this month you can choose any number you want it to be. Come along to the AAA Birthday blog and see what the Design Team has created and a special welcome to Izzy as this months Guest Designer.
