Craft Stamper Magazine - Design #2

Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles

Last month I shared details about being asked by the Editor of Craft Stamper magazine to produce some cards for an article all about Stampin' Up!.  I shared my first card in THIS post where I explained about using the shaving foam technique to create a back ground for the card.  With off cuts from that back ground I used the Stampin Up Swirly Scribbles dies to create the flower in this card along with the Stampin Up stamp set Swirly Birds.  The background is sponged through a stencil that I made with my Stampin Up trimmer and I've added a die cut vellum layer which I sponged with lemon lime twist ink and also heat embossed with the same stamp set and using copper embossing powder.  To connect the copper embossing I added some copper thread under the centre of the flower using glue dots.

The first matt layer is from shimmery white card stock with an additional one and the base card in thick whisper white card.  The other inks used are fresh fig, berry burst and versa mark.

Don't forget you can get your hands on a copy of any Craft Stamper Magazine by visiting .  The December issue is out in selected shops on Friday.

I hope you like my design and remember there were three so I'll be back soon with the third.

Take care

Wow Zoe, this is stunning! Your color scheme is absolutely gorgeous and I love all the details -especially the copper embossing. Wonderful to see so many techniques and design ideas in a card that yet remains CAS! Well done! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

Really love everything about this card, can be used for most occasions or even adapted for Christmas by changing the colours and using a snowflake instead of a flower. Well done Zoe and congratulations on your second Craft Stamper project.
