Spotlight Technique Video

Hello, Crafters.

I hope you're enjoying you're weekend. 

As usual, I had a lovely time with the ladies in Peacehaven yesterday. 
All three projects used my favourite bundle from the Spring/Summer catalogue..............the Petal Passion Suite.

The card featured in today's video id the second card we made in class today.
I featured two techniques in the video, namely, spotlighting and stamping on ribbons. 

As I was working through the creation of the card on the video, I suddenly gasped when I realised I'd made a big bloomer!!! 

I'd adhered the top two layers onto the card base before I had adhered the ribbon.

I sat for a few seconds trying to think of an idea to get myself out of my predicament which very forrtunately, I did! 

This allowed me to leave it in the video!

My solution was to wrap the ribbon around a strip of 1" wide Whisper White Cardstock.

The idea worked well, and I offered this as an option to the Peacehaven ladies and they all deceided they want to use this option! 

What a lovely vote of confidence - thank you Ladies!

You will see several different options in these photographs, which I hope will help you decide which options go together to create the best card for you.

I wish you a very happy Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.

  1. Brilliant technique, not done this one either. So again another technique now in the bag ready to do for a project in the future. I have the Petal Palette Bundle I am so, so glad that I purchased this at the beginning of the Spring/Summer catalogue because I think I would have ordered other stamp sets otherwise and then not been able to afford to purchase the whole bundle. This is such a fabulous set with so much potential. Love it! Love your project too Jan.
