DT Deni - Shades of Green Post 2

Hi guys, DT Deni here..

I am a little late with my blog post this week as I've had a lot going on.

My Boyfriend and I took a few days away from our lives and went on a little trip just the two of us to The Whitsundays. While we were on Whitehaven Beach my partner proposed to me :-) It was absolutely perfect and he couldn't have done it in a more beautiful spot.
So now i'm organising a wedding on top of some family stuff that is going on.. hence me totally losing the plot and forgetting my blog post lol.

So here goes..




I have used a stamp set (new to me) from Lawn Fawn called Thanks a Bushel. I loved this stamp set but I wasn't sure how I would use it. I decided to make my youngest sons Teacher a card of him to give to her just to show our appreciation for all that she does.

Normally we would do red apples for a teacher, but I decided to go green and use it for my Design Team project.

I grabbed some Mondi Color Copy scraps that I had sitting in my tub, then had a quick think about what i was going to do..

I decided I wanted to add the single apples also, so I stamped those using Memento Tuxedo Black using Lawn Fawn Acrylic Blocks onto Post It tape and fussy cut them out. I stamped the two single apples on the left and right (don't forget you always stamp the images u want in front first), I then placed my two post it note apples on top of the stamp images and then stamped the apple basket. At the last minute i decided to stamp all the little faces onto the apples which just turned out so cute.

I then coloured up all the apples using Copic Markers (listed below). I cut the stitched square using Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares dies.


I stamped the sentiment word "Thanks" onto the square using Memento Tuxedo Black and I then stamped the rest of the sentiment using Versamark Watermark Ink onto some Canson Black Card Stock (I did use my embossing buddy before stamping) which I just cut to size on my trimmer. I then added some Wow Opaque White Embossing Powder to the sentiment and melted it using my Heat Gun.

I cut the mats using American Crafts and Canson Cardstock, I couldn't find a patterned paper i liked for this card so i decided to make my own and stamp the apples all over a square mat of the Mondi Color Copy. I attached all the layers onto a Twiddleybitz Card Base using my ATG.



I had so much fun making this card and hope I have inspired you to think outside of the box.
