Hey! Welcome to my page.
New mid-month challenge has begun over at Crafter’s Café and the theme is “Use a Stencil”. Our sponsor Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps is graciously giving away two images from their website as prizes. So head on over there to see more inspiration from my DT members and to enter your creations in our challenge.
For this card, I chose this yummy Sundae image. I think I don’t have enough food content in my stash and after this, I think I’m going to try and add some more in my collection.
I wanted to share the scene of a barista where the sundae was sitting atop a table. Considering that I had none of these, I had to get a little creative. Most of the products you see here, have been used in other ways that intended.
Lets start with the awning. I actually used a part of the die from the Spellbinders die set that actually die cuts the lace (I bought it ages ago and is currently discontinued; but have a look at the picture here).
Using the Altenew Stripe Builder Stencil along with Milled Lavender and Spun sugar distress oxides I made the design. I wanted a little bit retro look. I scored a line across this so that I could fold it at the back and adhere it with double tape. I also adhered double tape at the base of the awning and then lifted it gently to give a up turned awning look.
Next was to create the table. This is again using Hero Arts Woodgrain background die that I dry embossed using the Big Shot and the silicone rubber mat making the sandwich as mentioned in the guide. I used Gathered Twigs distress ink over the embossed piece. I followed the same method of scoring a line and folding it at the back.
I printed this Sundae image and colored in the image with Arteza brush pens. I also wanted to add some fruit, but I realized not having many options, I used this Waffle Flower strawberry die that the company graciously added in one of my orders. I actually used the paint samples that you get in any paint shop to die cut the image. As I wanted a little bit of white showing, I gently scraped the images using an Xacto knife.
All of this uses the Accent Opaque white cardstock 120 lb.
