Imagine Design Create Design Team Card using Retro Gamer and Gamer Quotes: Experience Card


Hello Everyone,

Today I am excited to share my first card as a member of the full Imagine Design Create Design Team! I have guest designed for a few months now and super happy to have been asked to become a full time member. I've also got a fab discount code for you! If you use my code you can get 15% off your order!!! The code is:
SB2018IDCDT

I have used one of my favourite stamp sets for this card - Retro Gamer and Gamer Quotes stamp sets. I decided to also use the stars from Star Mix to give this card a retro funky feel. I have combined these with some Distress Oxides to create a vintage feel to the card. The original blog post can be found here!


I have also used:
6” x 6” white card blank
5 ¾” x 5 ¾” white card

This card was fairly simple I stamped the stars around the edges firstly in Fossilized Amber and leaving gaps to fill in with Broken China, twisting the stamp round to create different patterns. I then stamped the sentiments and a few background patterns in Vintage Photo to create the surround for the centre. Lastly I stamped the space invaders and the shooter and the blended the Vintage Photo Ink around the edges to finish.

I love using contrast of the Distress Oxides on white giving this card a clean yet grungy / funky / vintage feel.


Thanks for stopping by,

Fiskarettes Foamiran Flower Decorative Heart using Fiskars In Bloom Squeeze Punch and Petal by Petal Squeeze Punch

Good Evening Everyone! 

Today I am sharing my Fiskarettes Design Team Decorative Heart I made using the In Bloom and Petal by Petal Squeeze Punches with Foamiran.


I painted my wooden heart with gesso and punched out four flowers in a pale peachy Foamiran.


I used Faber-Castell Gelatos and to colour my Foamiran and my iron to heat and roll the petals to create the texture.


I used Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide through a Tim Holtz stencil across the heart, blended the edges of the heart with the pink colour.


I finished my flower with hot glue from my Stix2 Glue Glun and added stamens in white and some leaves coloured with the Frayed Burlap ink.


I love the depth of the flower and how cute this project has turned out.


More inspiration can be found on the facebook Fiskarettes UK page and on Instagram!
