Category Archives: Swirly Scribble thinlits

Christmas in August… pretty pink! (310 & 311)

Another lovely pair of ATC card toppers and then some more scraps cards using resist technique and pink and purple colours…

All of the backgrounds were created using an old Papermania background stamp and stamping in versamark and then heat embossing with white powder.  I didn’t do a clean job of stamping it but it didn’t matter for the purpose of these backgrounds. 

Once I had heat set the embossing I started added ink in bright pinks and purples using a mini round gelli plate.  I love the effect this gave of overlapping the colours but keeping some defined edges a bit like patchwork. 

I then cut them into panels… two ATCs and two squares. 

The ATCs I made little embellishments from the Festival of Trees stamp set and matching punch. 

For the squares I chose die cuts to add features. I also die cut a little bit of the inked paper left over using the swirly scribbles thinlits to provide the contrast swirls against the white card blanks. 

I mounted the card toppers onto some pre embossed card blanks and added touches of glitter to finish. 

Love love love these modern and fresh cards. 

Happy crafting!

Christmas in August … swirly scribble thinlits

I made these 5 cards at the weekend using the swirly scribble thinlits from Stampin Up to create fun wreath motifs.

I started by stamping the Sheet Music background onto the card blanks. I used Mossy Meadow for this and then set them aside. I then die cut the swirly circles in two sizes.

I then stamped and hand cut the leaves and the baubles from the Carols for Christmas set. This took quite a while as I stamped a lot of them! Good job I am patient!

I then started to assemble them and made little banners for the sentiments. To each of the baubles I added some dazzling diamonds clear glitter glue to add sparkle.

The last two I changed it up a bit and used the pointsettia flower instead of the baubles. I did add the glitter to the centre of the flowers on this one.

And on the last one I added some champagne shimmer ink to the die cut and then just added the pointsettia flowers.

I love how these came out and they were well worth the effort of fussy cutting out so many tiny pieces.

Happy crafting!
