I've been wanting to make a waterfall card for a while now, but just never seemed to get around to doing it. Well, a challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments was the motivation I needed. Their challenge this week is to create a card using a fancy fold technique.
Splitcoast Stampers has the perfect tutorial for making this card.
Stamps: A Flower for all Seasons and Elements of Style
Paper: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Stampin' Write Markers: Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Green Garden Certainly Celery and Basic Grey
Embellishments: Eyelets, Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Accessories: SNAIL, Blender Pen, Stampin' Up! Crop-a-Dile, Clear Mount Block B, Piercing Tool and Mat Pack
I won't go through step-by-step on how to make the card since the tutorial is available on the Splitcoast Stampers website (follow link above). So, I really only have 1 tip to give. Some of the colors I used will not have the ink pads available until July 1st (Canada Day, eh!) so I had to use my Stampin' Write markers to color the images. There are many ways to do this with a Blender Pen; one way is to hold the tip of the Blender Pen to the tip of the Stampin' Write Marker so the Blender Pen can soak up some of the ink. Or, you can do what I did, and that was to use a couple different colors on the Clear Mount Block B (you can use any size obviously) with the Stampin' Write Marker and then dip your Blender Pen into whatever color you want to use. You still need to clean your Blender Pen on a piece of scrap paper in between colors, but it still makes changing colors a little easier.
Here's a couple more pictures of the waterfall card from different angles.
Thanks for stopping by today.
