I am super excited to announce that I have been chosen to be part of the addINKtive Design Team. Each month I will be showcasing one of the tutorials by the amazing Bronwyn Eastley.
To kick off my first month I decided to use Bronwyn’s One Wild Ride Z-Fold Card Tutorial with its special slider feature. Bronwyn’s instructions are very clear and simple to follow, so you can adapt her designs to create your very own…like I did for my version!
Bronwyn’s design is a masculine card, but I changed mine up for just a bit of fun and created my This Little Piggy Z Fold Card … he he he…
When I saw her design the idea of a little piggy running along a fence just bounced into my head, so of course I had to create it!
I created the background using the ombre papers from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. Simply use Bronwyn’s measurements and lay a Blue piece on top of a Green Piece, then cut the rolling hills. Seperate them and then match your bottom green piece to your top blue piece and voila – instant rolling hills with shades of blue and green! The only thing I did do was mark where I needed to begin cutting the next pieces so my ‘hills’ would meet.
I pulled out the much neglected (in my craft room anyway) Sprinkles of Life stamp set and punch to create the trees, apples, birds and flowers. I had truly forgotten how versatile this amazing stamp set can be! Did you know it also makes cupcakes, ice creams, clouds, baskets and bunches of flowers!
I did change up the slider section slightly as I wanted it to look more like a fence, so I created two strips rather than one, and used a couple of the punched pieces for fence posts at the start and end of the slider.
Some embossing paste for fluffy clouds and the cute little piggies and I was finished! It’s just a bit cute and fun to slide that piggy along the fence! Lol. And the best bit – these cards fold flat for posting!
