The project club set for this month is all about Easter, but I think it will be used for lots of other projects as well. The set comprises of four sentiments, an egg, a chick, the chicks footprints, a daffodil, a lamb and a basket full of eggs. If you are interested in the project club visit the Nina Crafts website and enter your details or send an email for full details.
Project Club Stamps and Card Kit
Memento – Cantaloupe and Olive Grove (or any dark green and golden yellow ink)
VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad
Clear Embossing Powder
Colouring Pens/Pencils or Markers
Foam Tape or Pads
Double Sided Tape
Cut the A5 yellow card so it measures slightly smaller than the base card. Cut one of the pieces of white card so it measures slightly smaller than the yellow card. Using this piece of white card, the daffodil stamp and the golden yellow ink, stamp randomly all over the white card. Once dry matt the white stamped card onto the yellow card and attach to the card front using double sided tape.
Using the other A5 white card cut so it measures 10cm x 14.3cm. Dust this piece of card with the anti-static bag. Use the VersaFine ink to stamp the basket and the sentiment. Adding the embossing powder after each stamped image. Heat emboss and allow to cool before colouring the basket. Matt this topper onto the yellow card using double sided tape.
On the left over white card dust with the anti-static bag. Use the chick stamp and the VersaFine ink to stamp three chicks, adding the embossing powder after each. Heat emboss and allow to cool before colouring the chicks. Cut out the chicks, and leave to one side for later. In this picture you will see I didn't colour or cut out the feet, you can't see them in the finished card anyway and I left the last chick until the card was finished.
Use the green card to cut out three squares measuring 6cm x 6cm. Use the long strip of white card cut out three squares measuring 5.5cm x 5.5cm.
Stamp onto these three white squares the footprints using the green ink. Matt these white squares onto the green squares using double sided tape. Using PVA glue attach the chicks to the squares. Arrange the chicks in any position you like.
Attach these squares equally along the bottom edge of the card front using double sided tape or PVA glue. I attached the outer two first then the middle one, this helps me judge the spacing.
Ribbon - cut the ribbon so you have enough to fit across two of the corners making the bottom right slightly smaller, attach to the topper with double sided tape. I used a little tape on each end of the ribbon.
On the back of this topper stick a strip of foam tape to the top section and to the middle section. Along the bottom section use double sided tape. Because of the thickness of the squares we will only need double sided tape on the bottom section and the foam tape will make sure the topper is flat.
To finish I added some foam pads to the last of the three chicks and attached to the corner.
