More Squares and a Tutorial

Hi everyone!

Today I have a process video showing you how you can make a quick set of cards.  I find its great to have a few cards on hand for that unexpected birthday party that the kids get invited to, or for sending someone a quick 'Thank you' note.  These cards would even make a lovely gift to give someone. They are so quick and easy and super fun to make! 

The video will give you a step by step guide to the creative process. Grab a cuppa and enjoy the video, the link is at the end of this post!

I started by smearing two pieces of cardstock with the Colour Blast Pastes.  The green tones are 'Deep Water' and 'Envy' and the purple is 'Royalty' and 'Rose Petal'.  When these were dry I cut them into squares.  I stamped and edged them in Black Archival ink.

The card bases were randomly splattered or stamped to create an interesting background and then the coloured squared are layered ontop.  This technique really gives you endless layout opportunities as the little coloured squares are really the 'stars of the show'. To add a little bit more to the cards, I spritzed them all with the 'Bling' Colour Shimmer Spray.

And here's the process video for you.
Thanks for dropping in.
