Lil Primrose

In March we used the gorgeous Lil Primrose girls from Kaiser to create these 3 lovely cards.  
These cards featured in our classes and we had lots of fun teaching our customers how to recreate them. 

In the card above we stamped the little girl on Buttercream Bazzill and onto the green print. We trimmed around her body leaving a small border and them trimmed around her hat and dress cutting along the line. The dress and hat was then glued onto her body. Any small print can be used for this technique. It is a great way to put colour into a stamped image without having to colour it. She was then mounted onto the die cut circles which were adhered to the printed paper and then the card base. Rub ons and ribbon were also used to embellish the card.

The card above is done in the same way as the first card. Another small print was used for her dress and hat. If you have 6" paper pads at home go through them and you will find that you have a great collection of paper that has a variety of small prints on them. Kaiser, Doodlebug and American Craft papers often have great prints that you can use for this technique on the back of their main prints. The image was then mounted onto the die cuts which were mounted onto the printed paper and then the card base.
The card above has been stamped with Staz On and coloured in with Tombow pens. A "water colour" look was created here by picking up colour with the clear blender pen and colouring in. No shadows were included as we wanted a soft look.

Did you know that raising the layers on your card with Magic Mount (double sided sticky foam) will make even the most basic layout look more complex than what it is. In the card above we have mounted the girl onto the top die cut. This layer is then mounted onto the larger die cut. Sometimes we also double mount a layer if we want to make a feature of it on a card.

 Magic Mount comes in 2 colours (black and white). White is used a lot of the time but black is very handy when you are working on dark cards (as white stands out against dark cards). 
Why not try using some on the next card you make.
