CS2 Day 9

Hi all!  Today I have 4!! homework cards to share!  The first is Julie’s glitter topped ombre effect card:


I used Pretty Phrases and some pigment inks from a muse|studio.  It’s hard to tell but the top of the card is covered in a fine layer of glitter and those dots around the sentiment are Stickles.  To finish it off, I sewed a strip of matching cardstock to the bottom of the card.  I didn’t try the other card that’s totally covered in glitter because I was having issues with glitter rubbing off of this card, and would rather not have a completely untouchable card!

This next card used Jennifer’s paper pleating technique which was really fun!


I used a sheet of MME patterned paper for the pleating and the new Streamers set and matching dies.  The heart is a Nesties shape and all the cardstock is from Papertrey.  I resisted the urge to cover the heart in glitter because I thought the card had enough interest already. :)

Next up is Lisa’s brayered embossing:


I used the Leafy Branch embossing folder and a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler.  I brayered the card with dye-based ink instead of paint and added a little Stickles to each leaf.  I finished off the card with some white twill.

Last, but not least, is Lisa’s layered washi tape technique:


I used another sentiment from Sentiment Sampler and a bunch of different washi tapes from my stash (really love that cupcake one!).  I finished off like Lisa’s with the twine wrapped flag, although I added a bow to mine and left off the flower piece.  I really like this use of washi tape and will try this again in the future!

Whew!  That’s a lot for one post – thanks for sticking with me ‘til the end!
