This week our challenge for you is to make an Easel Card. These are really easy to make and as you might have noticed, I LOVE THEM!
The stamped image I have used is from the new LOTV Spring stamps and this one is called 'Baby Girl', isn't she so sweet? I coloured her with pencils and layered her using my Nesties. I covered the base card with white card and gingham paper and tied a piece of ribbon around the main piece. I then 'iced' some heart shaped buttons (see below) and added some roses. On the lower part I stamped and layered a sentiment and placed it in the centre using foam pads. I added two more 'iced' buttons and a bow to finish off.
How to 'ice' buttons:-
Using tweezers, press your button into a Versamark inkpad. Next, dip the button into 'hologram' embossing powder. Remove and heat with a heat gun until powder has melted. While the embossing powder is hot quickly dip the button back into the embossing powder and heat again, repeat once more. When done, leave to cool before attaching to card. This adds a lovely sparkle to your buttons. It also works on flowers but you must not overheat them.
