Hello Craft-mates :-)
How are you all getting on with Jamie Rodgers' NEW Pierced Die Collection?
I have to confess I am a little addicted (as you may have guessed) - there are just so options, and I also like to mix some of this Collection with some of my original Cosmic Shimmer faithfuls - as you will find out!!!
So today I’m bringing you a very simple coloured card from this Collection - The Butterfly & Flowers Frame Die Set.
▪️To begin, cut out the scalloped background, stitched layer scalloped oval, and the butterfly centre piece in white card.
✅ Save all of the little butterflies and flowers from your die cuts for a little later!
▪️Now take some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Sparkles in Sandstorm and Groovy Grape .
Sprinkle a small amount of each into a paint pallet, and then using a water brush start painting the centre piece as seen.
▪️You will also need to paint 4 of the larger butterflies in the background pierced piece, 8 smaller ones, plus an additional 8 larger flowers.
With the scalloped back section, you need to just paint a strip all round the edge of this piece.
▪️When you've painted all your elements, glue the pierced piece onto the scalloped background and stick in the butterflies and flowers (as seen in mine).
▪️Then adhere the butterfly centre piece onto the oval scalloped section using foam pads.
Stick this onto the pierced background.
▪️Take a 7x7 card blank and cut this down a fraction, so it will fit your stitched card topper, and
stick this directly onto your card.
▪️For our sentiment, I am using the backing plate from Jamie Rodgers' "Joyful Tidings' Pierced Collection Die Set. The wording "Sister" is from Jamie's Sentiment Collection - Female Relatives Set. You can shorten the back plate with the same die so Sister fits nicely .
✅ One thing I particularly love about Jamie's Collections, is that you can interchange them and they complement one another (like I've done here).
▪️Paint the back plate with Sandstorm Pixie Sparkles and "Sister" with Groovy Grape.
When dry, stick these together and place onto your card with foam pads. Perfect to add a little dimension!!
▪️Finish by gluing the butterflies in the centre and in the sentiment - plus a few gems as seen.
✅ Also a little idea.... Creative Expressions Water Crystals (see below), look amazing on top of your Pixie Backgrounds :-)
I hope you've enjoy making this card, and it's given you a few more ideas of designs and colour combinations. Don't forget to share with us on our Facebook Group - Create With Craftmania And Jamie Rodgers.
