I am trying different projects with hand made paper….
The paper i am using is bought handmade paper but i am allowed to try out for the Arnold Grummer design team with it.
Go check out the teams blog: click here
and the website: click here
So here is a tutorial. (I have 3 projects to show you so will put the links at the bottom of this post as they go up – well three so far anyway.)
The cog rose greeting card:
You will need:
Handmade paper in white, light green and light brown.
Dark brown cardstock.
White plain card base.
Green ink pad, light brown ink pad, brown ink pad – swirl stamp & peace word stamp.
Tim Holtz cog die.
Dark red, light red and green copic markers and colourless blender copic refil.
1. Use cog die with white handmade paper..
2. Cut the slit to the middle of your cogs.
3. Overlap the ends and glue into place to make the flat cog dimensional do to all three cogs.
4. With the smallest cog push a section into the middle and stick the fold of that to the other side.
5. Layer all three cogs into each other only glueing the very middle of each.
6. Once the glue is dry dry flip back the bottom cog as shown.
7. Grab the lightest copic red and run it around the edges of each layer of your flower.
8. Next with the colourless blender refil drip it onto the red and make it run.
9. Repeat steps 7&8 with the darkest red copic.
10. Cut out leaf shapes with the green handmade paper.
11. And cut out some small knotches along the outside of the leaves.
12. Draw around the outside of your leaves with the green copic and do the same technique as with the rose and use the colourless blender over top.
13. Trim dark brown cardstock a little bit smaller than the front of cardbase, and the light brown cardstock a bit smaller again.
14. Stamp brown swirls and green swirls on the light brown cardstock
15. Sponge the edges with dark brown ink of the leaves, rose and light brown cardstock…
16. Assemble the layers into place on the cardfront and pinch the leaves to crate shape.
17. Stamp the word peace on the bottom right of the card.
You are done!
See you again soon.
