Blog Hop time! Stampendous, May Arts, Core'dinations and David Tutera join forces :)



Welcome to the big Finale of this week's collaboration of  the three fantastic companies: Stampendous, Core'dinations along with its David Tutera line and May Arts ribbons.

I am really happy to see you here today - and I'd like to say a very special welcome to my newest followers :). Your support really means a lot to me - thank you! 

Ok then, please make yourself at home, grab a cuppa and let's begin!

The project I'd like to share with you today is a card for my F-I-L as we are soon going to celebrate Father's Day here in the UK. My F-I-L is a very special person, a man of many wonderful talents - painting being one of them. In my project I tried to capture at least a fragment of the magic my F-I-L creates in his paintings. And with the help of some wonderful crafty products I was ready to give it my best shot!




I was recently inspired by a 'patchwork technique' I saw in the Craft Stamper magazine. I really loved the lush plush look this technique created on cardstock and just I knew I had to try it! And with a lovely linen like texture of the Core's cardstock, I hoped my patchwork would look great.

I stared by sponging some Antique Linen distress ink onto my card from the Whitewash Collection against the edge of my acetate 'template'. Moving your template down create parallel lines with your shading. Next turn your card 90 degrees and repeat the process. 



Then using Coffee Archival ink I stamped the Cling Artist Elements stamp onto my 'patchwork' panel and I coloured it with water colour pencils. I also created a smaller panel using the same cardstock and patchwork technique. I used it for my sentiment Cling Color Outside.


I could not leave this project without a touch of Fran-tage so I decorated my feature panel with Shabby White Embossing Enamel, Aged Ochre Embossing Enamel, Red Tinsel Embossing Powder, Aged Hunter EE, Aged Teal EE and Sunflower Micro Glitter. Finally I added some clear 'buttons' with Glossy Accents.

Next I chose the postage stamp edge card from the David Tutera sets I cut to size all my patterned paper layers (7 Dots Studio, Dreamer). I distressed them all with the Sand-It tool and wiped the dust with the Cleaning Cloth from the Sand-It set.


Then I folded one side of the David Tutera's card blank in half and reinforced the whole base with cardstock from the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic line. Next I added all my paper layers and tucked in some DT's embellishments.


To finish the card I altered some embellishments by swiping them with Boss Gloss and heat embossing them with Aged Teal EE. For the flower centre I added some Teal Mica Fragments and a metal flower embellishment from the D.T.'s embellies pack.


I layered my flower over May Arts Faux Suede ribbons and I used the Net ribbon for the base of my easel.
