Pootles Design Week 3 for June

Hello friends,

Welcome to week 3 of the design team. This week I had fun looking at different cuts and folds for card, I took my inspiration from Vamp Stamps eArticle called Speciality Card Folds: Cards with More Than One Fold (link can be found here. I would encourage you to have a look at the other eArticles.

I settled on a tri fold card with the top of the card stepped, on relection I think that this stamp was a bit too big for this but overall the card came out quite well.

You will need the following

Pootles Deign week 1 for June

Hello and welcome to week 1 for the June Pootles design team.

This month’s stamp set is called Remarkable You (click to purchase). This stamp was never on my radar, I don’t know why as it is flowers and something I can colour in, both of which I love.

As this stamp is a very clean and elegant I want to mimick that in the finished project as I don’t do fussy cards (if that what you are looking for you’ve come to the wrong place). I also wanted to single layer card but to too boring that’s why I decided to cut a panel out.

I have done a short video (well short for me) on how I completed that card.



What you will need

I 5×7 card base in white.

Colour pencils, I used Faber Castell polychromos is the following colours, helioblue reddish (151), ultramarine (120) and sky blue (146) for the flowers. As long as you have a dark, medium and light shade of a colour you are fine. For the leaf, I used juniper green (165)

A scrap of cardstock for the strip (I used night of navy but any colour that matches or goes with the colour of the flower.

Black ink and clear embossing power and some

Hope you will try this and see you next time
