Craft Stamper and Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles

Last year I did some design work for Craft Stamper magazine.  The colour theme was Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.  I was also asked to use the Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles dies.  This was the third card I created and I'm sharing today as tomorrow the June 2018 issue will be available in the shops and I have some designs in this issue also.  The magazine is fabulous and full of tips and techniques as well as lots of inspiration.  Earlier this week I shared the projects that the magazine Editor produced for the same article in the magazine and details of how you can get your hands on a copy of the magazine both in the UK or digitally elsewhere. You can see more in my   guest designer post.

For this card I created a back ground using embossing paste with one of the Stampin' Up! Pattern Party Decorative masks.  I added die cuts using the Swirly Scribbles dies and and made some spiral flowers by using the offcuts from the die cutting and cutting in a spiral before rolling into flowers.  You'll find that these stick better with either tombow and a patient person to hold it while it sets and dries or a hot glue gun.  The leaves are also die cuts from the same dies and I did some free hand veins.  I've stamped my sentiment using the co-ordinating inks and the Alphabet Labeller stamp set.
I added a touch of sparkle to the flowers using fine tip glue and glitter and a mini pearl in each flower.

I've layered the whole design onto Berry Burst card and then on to a base card of Tranquil Tide.

I'll be sharing my new designs very soon and they feature the very popular stamp set Beautiful Day. Once again Trish has produced very different projects also so do come back and visit.

Look out for this cover in the shops for the June issue on sale from Friday 4 May. 

More soon Zoe x
