Some of you may not know, what I'm talking about, as I say Country Rose.
Well, it is the name of this paperpad
It's a 6 x 6 paperpad from cArt-Us and it is so super cute.
my next projects were made with this gorgeous paper.
First up is a card.
The base for my card was cut from cArt-Us white cardstock and I used the,
cArt-Us Scalloped Square Die set, to cut the frame for the bigger square. Glued a sweet rose paper behind it. The frame itself was treated with Tulip white Puffy Paint.
The top square was also treated with Puffy Paint and my sentiment was stamped with Ranger Archival ink (jet black)
Here you can see upclose what an amazing texture this Puffy Paint gives.
On the right top I aged the paper, by spritzing some water on it, let it set for a few second and then I rubbed over it with my finger.
I took a strip of tule, which I glued (ruffled) down using hot glue. and placed my butterfly right on top.
The butterflies were covered in some Diamond Dust (glass glitter) and some Ranger's Diamond Stickles.
And here's another project I did with the paper from the pad.
I will quickly run you through the steps, to create this layout.
I started with a sheet of, 12 x 12 Coredinations white cardstock.
I hand cut the flowers (from 1 of the 6x6 papers that is in the pad.)
layered them out in groupings and I cut my frame using this die from cArt-Us:
I cut the frame twice, pop dotted it in between, for extra dimension.
I also traced the embossed lines with Tulip white Puffy Paint.
I added my brick wall by using a stencil from The Crafters Workshop.
I placed the stencil on my cardstock and got me some Gesso out, which I sponged over my stencil.
Then after the Gesso was dry, I added Puffy Paint to get some dimension on my bricks.
I layed my cutout flowers and frame back and decieded which flowers and embellies I would like to use. I find it easier to lay everything back in place to decide what colors I am going to use for the background.
Once I made up my mind, I add some extra details to the background with some stamping.
This time, I created my own tattered doily stamp.
(A technique I'll fill you in on, later this week)
I was quit happy with how it turned out.
I stamped it in a few spots, using Versamark clear embossing ink and Ranger's white embossing powder. Now I was ready to spray my colors to my page and do some dripping.
Here's a close up shot of the tattered doily stamp.
The silver splots you see on my background are splatters of Encaustic Wax.
