Welcome to my first ever blog hop! This is a blog hop hosted by Jill Cameron Creations, and all of our lovely files used today are available on her site.

See the original post here

This is currently such a weird time that I wasn’t sure even what to make. In New Zealand we have been on lock down for 28 days and this will continue for another couple of weeks. Who knows WHAT this will look like post lockdown for the world. But what I can say, is that every little ray of light for people is a warm kindness that just adds a bit of sparkle to thier day!

So with my Blog Hop I have created a little inspirational card for my lovely neighbours. We have been sharing baking during the lock down its been lovely. So I thought what a great opportunity to make something fun for them too!

WHAT WILL YOU NEED FOR THIS PROJECT?

The supplies needed for this particular project are pretty light, and you can make it as embellished or simple as you need, I went with the following supplies

  1. Watercolor Paper
  2. Faber Castell Gelatos
  3. Die Cuts from Rosies Studio
  4. Fringe Scissors
  5. Glue
  6. Gold Glitter Card
  7. My Cricut Maker
  8. Jill Camerons Cut Files

GETTING THE FILES CUT ON CRICUT MAKER!

This was incredibly easy to do. I grabbed the SVG files from Jill Cameron Creations and popped them into the Cricut design studio. This was really simple to do and I used the gold glitter craft paper/ cardboard to make the boarder

Once done I moved everything over to my desk and started assembling the card.

ASSEMBLING THE CARD

After laying everything out, I cut strips of paper from some gorgeous rainbow style paper from rosies studio.

I then fringed the paper with the paper scissors

After sticking the fringed paper to the I trim the fringe to fit

Now we move onto painting the background! Using the Faber Castell Gelatos are amazing and so easy to use!

I chose similar colors to the fringed paper to create a cohesive effect

Blending the gelatos is a breeze. I used watercolor paper for a fun texture but this would have worked on basic card stock too

Now I stick down my circle to the watercolor

I add my die cuts to the creation. I just love that all the colors are matching!

I pop the frame around the circle to give it that awesome glow!

Now for the final part!

I use my watercolor markers to write my wee saying. This could be anything from “Stay well” to “No Place like home”

I went over the lettering with a watercolor brush to give it that watercolor feel, and then used a grey pen to add a little shadow and my white pen to highlight the letters. 

I then trimmed out the letters and stuck them on my circle.
