Guest Designer post: PaperSoft card and box

Hello eveyone,

Don't forget it is our MINIFEST tomorrow, do come and join us if you can.  There will be seven demonstrators in the shop, so lots of ideas for you and lots of new goodies for you to see!!!

Today we'd like to share with you a beautiful card and box made by our Guest Designer, this month, Cheryl.  This project involves using My Paperworld products and Cheryl has done a great step by step so you can see how she made it.

To make this lovely card and box, Cheryl used a variety of My Paperworld products.

      Here, Cheryl is using smooth white card, Paper Soft Colour - Cobalt Blue and My Paperworld clear stamps - Letters and Embellishments. 
My Paper World sponge brush applicators are perfect for easy transfer of paint to card or stamps.  Starting on a craft sheet and with circular motions, come onto the card and build up colour slowly.  This will give a lovely smooth finish.  

Stamp your image onto your coloured card using sponge applicators and paint.  Leave to dry.

For stamped image you will need My Paper World clear stamps - Flowers and Butterflies.

Stamp the floral design and butterflies onto another piece of card with black Versafine.

  Colour image with pencils and mount it onto contrasting coloured card and then onto your Paper Soft coloured card.   My Paperworld Paper Pen - Cobalt Blue is used to create raised 'blobs' in the corner of the card and on the butterflies.  Add ribbon to finish.

And now for the box.

You will need the same set of Letters and Embellishments clear stamps but this
                                       time ink the flourishes with black Archival ink.

When ink is dry, add  Paper Soft Colour as before, building up the colour slowly.

Assemble your box as shown.

Cheryl now adds My Paperworld Paper Pen - Cobalt Blue, over some of the stamped images which gives a lovely raised finish.

Thank you Cheryl.

Hope this inspires you to try My Paperworld products!!
