Open view by Brenda

Hello all you lovely Peeps, I have a little project to share which after finishing thought it might be useful to do a tutorial as there are always new crafters in blogland, so I have made a start on another and took a few photos along the way.

Front Cover Card

I know the shape is not a new concept and it's years since I used it in a class, but it sort of came back into my mind the other night when trying to think what I could do to keep my crafty mind occupied until I can stamp again properly. And Ignacio's lovely NicecraneChristmas images are perfect, I used images from the Old Merry Christmas and Adorable Christmas sheets.

How-to :Cardstock: Three 8"x8" pieces 220/250gsm for the main card and two 4"x4" pieces of a heavy weight for the front and back panels. Coordinating DP's: Two pieces 5"x5" for front and back panels, ten 3.5" squares, four left whole and six cut diagonally  Scoreboard and scoring tool, glue and choice and images, ribbons etc., to decorate.

Score each 8"x8" square as indicated above I have made the photo's large in the hope you can read the directions and my current appalling writing - things can only get better

Glue the three pieces together as indicated above

Now fold each scored line both ways to make the whole piece more flexible and then into the finished shape

This is how I deal with my box lids and the same process works for this project and below the finished panel ready to be adhered to the main piece. And finally add all the internal square and triangle DP's sections and decorate.

I am not totally convinced my explanations Yo can get a Video Tutorial HERE:

The Girls her at StampARTic where so lucky as to be sponsored by Nicecrane Designs with images that we used in all our different projects.: Sheets used are showed below-
Angelica `s work

I transferred the image to a piece of chipboard covered with ordinary tin foil. A top coat of Decoart Patio paint Clearcoat. I love the effect of image transfer to tin foil, it really gives the picture an "inner glow"

The frame is also made from tin foil (glued to a piece of cardstock). I used an embossingfolder from Provo Craft/Cuttlebug and then applied several washes of Decoart Carbon Black acrylic
paint to give it a weathered, aged look.
Enjoy the amazing work by Mia`
The images from Nicecrane are absolutely adorable and I had so much fun creating with them. So, I was inspired by autumn colours, different shades of brown and green. I also love fairies as you might have seen on my projects before and this little girl was so cute sitting quietly and speaking to her friend, the frog.

Absolutely a delicious to watch,,,

And what about this creation by Gunn

Pink is actually one of my favorite colors. So for this project I wanted to make a Art Journal page. I use the Vintage Vanity journal from Prima. Great for those not so big projects. I fell in love with this Victorian Art collection Pack. And the image i choosed, is perfect for The Pink month in my mind.

Finally I am showing the work by LindaSS

I had so much fun creating with my images from Nicecrane... They are so versatile and fabulous to work with, and one image can me used in so many different ways... First of all I want to show you a card I made with the topic of pink and breastcancer in mind.. I actual went down to my beach and got some shells to use.

As you can see I also played with some mists, paints, mediums and more... I just had a blast..
