My papercraft and card making projects

Saturday, 4 July 2015


Another of Sue Wilson's more recent shares, using the weaving die in yet another way.

I used antique silver card with the pumice coloured card for a change to white.  It gives a softer look and imo goes well with silver.

Possibly a good card for a male recipient.

thank you

When i saw Sue Wilson's original of this card I was a little daunted, but when i made this I was surprised that it wasn't too difficult!   Just a lot of lovely decoration.

I got the sentiment stamp as an individual at Ally Pally.
Not having any string pearls in cream i used some distress glitter in linen on the edge of the sentiment, and used some gold paper for the flowers which i found easier to manipulate.

just a note

In Sue Wilson's original of this she used a different sentiment but it would be too large for my version so i used this one.

i don't have any silver texture paste so i mixed some gunmetal with polar white.

The thin ribbon is tinted grey with the new grey distress ink.

A simple Sue Wilson card using gloss black for a nice change and a matching stamp that i coloured using distress markers.

you're so special

There is a video on Sue Wilson's page that shows this card and how to do the letterpress background.

you're special to me

A little splicing through the center and you have a new shape!!

Sue Wilson showed how to achieve this very simply.
Even the central shape around the sentiment is a cut-down die cut.

happy birthday

A recent Sue Wilson video for this technique of a 'stained glass window effect.

The glitter does not photograph well but looks really nice true life.
