The Sky's The Limit Card
Remember last week I posted about a mini workshop on Two Peas In a Bucket called Tool School? I finished up the videos and am absolutely incredibly satisfied with this class. I still actually need to read through the PDFs but I have to tell you, Jennifer Gallacher is awesome on video! It is so fun to watch her using different punches, dies, and tools in new ways I hadn't thought of, and I love that she does a full layout in each video.
In her video she does something with these Fiskars cloud punches (that's the mid-sized one, here's the smaller one and the largest one) that I happen to have picked up very cheap at CKC Manchester. She punched the clouds out of vellum! That was a "duh" moment for me. Of COURSE vellum makes perfect clouds. So I just had to try that on a card.
The vellum paper I used has some pattern to it, almost like a tissue paper. I punched several clouds out, and I used my Xyron 5" to add adhesive (the Xyron adhesive is perfect as it doesn't show through). I used a Gelly Roll white gel pen to add stitching around them. Perfect!
The kite stamp set I used is kites2fly from The Stamps of Life. I just stamped the outline of the kite, then stamped the panels in different colors, and I attached two of the panels with foam squares for some dimension.
I love this card so much! It's so cheerful and fun.
