Decorated Corners

Hello Crafters.

I have just uploaded today's vide You've Got This Decorated Corners.

I was inspired by a swap I received from Karen Gilchrist, a fellow demonstrator who I met at the Stampin' Up! Onstage Local Convention held in Telford on 16th April 2016.

Many thanks, Karen - I love this idea.

The two most likely errors that can made using this technique are to get stop marks if you don't keep your pen moving, and also to go off the edge as you go round the corner.

It took me a few attempts before I was happy with my results so I do recommend a bit of practice on scrap paper first.

I made three cards altogether - Pool Party, Pink Pirouette and Delight Dijon.

I'm not particularly happy with the Delight Dijon as it's quite dark and I definitely prefer lighter colours!

I made the Pool Party card first and then I decided to make Pink Pirouette for the video.

I do confess that most ribbons I use are retired!

I find that because there's so much ribbon on each roll I buy, I can't get through the whole roll during the life of them!

But they are always Stampin' Up! ribbons.

The only two real changes between the Pool Party and the Pink Pirouette cards is that I adhered the image and sentiment with Tombow on the first card and Dimensionals on the second card.

Personally, I don't have a preference between them except that the Dimensional cards are very likely cost extra postage here in the UK.

Equally, I find that adding a bow pushes the card up to Large Letter size and therefore extra postage.

During the video, I adhered the Pink Pirouette layer before I had decorated the sheet using Timeless Textures Stamp Set.

Fortunately it went onto a Basic Black card base so I was still able to stamp on it.

If it had been a Whisper White base, it's more than likely I would have gone over the edge and marked the white!

And if that had happened I would have left the layer blank rather than have any wastage.

I wish you a very happy Sunday.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
