Welcome back for another Artist Project Swap with Jennifer and Kyriakos. For the Month of May, we challenged our artists to exchange tutorials and create each other’s designs in order to see how each of our artists interprets style and choices. The receiving artist did not know who designed the project, nor did they receive any images! In today’s post, Jennifer writes the directions and recommended supplies list and Kyriakos created the project.
Learn How to Make a Friend Celebration Card by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou
Sometimes we need to tell our friends how much we love and appreciate them! In this cardmaking tutorial, I go through several steps of stenciling and stamping to create a cute card using Creative Medium, Fireworks Spray, and VersaFine Clair. The combination of shimmer with complimenting colors creates a fun and bright look. See how I did it!
Time: 30 minutes
Mix Creative Medium in Clear and Fireworks! Shimmery Craft Spray in New Sprout on the Craft Mat with a palette knife and press through a circle stencil positioned on the center-right side of a 3 ¾” x 5 ¾” piece of white cardstock. Allow to dry or set with heat tool.
Stamp sets of stems and centers of flowers with VersaFine Clair ink in Verdant, focusing more to the left of the Creative Medium.
Stamp details with VersaColor ink in Orchid over flower centers.
Stamp filler details around the top and sides of the card front and add leaves to the stems with Memento Luxe ink pads in Pistachio and Pear Tart.
Stamp a butterfly next to one of the flowers with VersaColor in Orchid.
Stamp a sentiment in VersaFine Clair in Nocturne in the lower right card front.
Mat the completed card front to a 4”x 6” piece of pink cardstock and attached to a card base.
