Hi everyone! I hope you have all had a nice weekend. We have just got back from a lovely week away in Cornwall where we were lucky to have sunny weather and fairly mild temperatures. We stayed in St Ives and it’s a lovely town – I liked being so close to the sea front with lots of nice cafes and restaurants and little shops to go in. There’s a big art scene in St Ives as the quality of light there has attracted lots of artists over the years so we went to the Tate and looked around lots of little galleries and art shops. But on to today’s topic! We have a fab tutorial on how to make a kissing alpacas slider card by new DT member Sarah Gray.
Sarah used a slider die from Mama Elephant to create this card
Adhere a piece of the ombre paper from the Alpaca Wishes pad to white cardstock and die cut the slider die as seen.
Add foam tape to the back of the panel so that it sits proud of the card base and allows the slider to work.
I am so pleased to welcome Sarah to our design team! Sarah has a wonderful clean and simple style of crafting that also focuses on mixed media elements. Sarah is the winner of Papercraft Essentials magazine Designer of the Year competition this year and also makes her own stencils and wooden embellishments. She will be manufacturing some stencils for us this year too, and the first one is this gorgeous scalloped stencil from the Mermaid Treasures range.
Sarah used alcohol inks, stamping with alcohol ink lift ink and gilding flakes to make the gorgeous background for this card, which features our little wooden turtles.
