Day 4 of the Birthday Blog Giveaway
Sonia Turners workshop & card giveaway
Sonia is a very talented Crafter who I admire very much – her cards are out of this world and I have added a selection I got from
her gallery – from Joanna`s forum
Check out the rest if you haven`t seen them
and i`m so grateful as I know how busy Sonia is with her sample making and her many sort after workshops she holds – so thanks Sonia
Sonia`s work is so often shown as samples on C&C and I for one can`t wait to see what new things she has come up with
Sonia makes the most wonderful folds in card marking and it`s a real treat to have a workshop on a STUNNING card
So here`s a few of Sonia`s AMAZING samples
Now for a Workshop written by Sonia
Messy Baby Bunny WORKSHOP
It is a real privilege to be asked by Suzanne to do a Workshop ! As part of Suzanne’s Celebration I decided to do a Multi-Fold Card and this one featuring a popular Messy Rabbit character was one of her favourites. So I was more than happy to oblige.
Having said that I am both an admirer of Suzanne and her fantastic devotion to her workshops on our lovely Forum. Also Linda is bursting with talent and I have loved these little Rabbits since they first appeared in our world !
Although you can make the basic card all in one if you have access to large card I have based it around A4 as that is what most of you probably have.
Here we go- WELCOME TO MY WORKSHOP !
Things you will need:
Messy Rabbit CD ( absolutely LOVE it !)
Messy Baby Bunny stamp
Soft Satin Photo Paper
Versafine Ink Pad (black)
3 x A4 White Linen Card
Pink Pearl Card
Water Colour Paper
1 Print off one sheet of toppers, two sheets of pink heart backing paper and two sheets of smaller pink heart paper on Soft Satin Photo Paper for a lovely SHEEN ( whoops ! Sorry about the pun ! ) I set my printer to ‘Draft’ to use less ink and ‘ Ink Jet Quality Paper’. However, experiment.
2 Pattern for first panel
3 Pattern for middle panel
4 Pattern for panel three
5 Fold first panel where marked and adhere to back of centre panel
6 Fold smaller flap backwards on centre panel
7 Cut off surplus on panel three, fold flap forwards and adhere to back of centre panel
8 Volia ! Basic card made, sit back and congratulate yourself ! The worst is over, you are SO clever.
9 My latest technique for matting and layering. Give it a try or stick to your tried and trusted method. Stick DST to back of picture. Release just a little bit from one corner. Lay on matting layer and adjust until you have an even border all round. Pull tape away. NOW this is going nowhere !!!
10 Lift the picture and take the other pieces of backing tape away and smooth out for your perfect piece. This method will now apply to the decorative panels we are going to make later for the card. Clever, heh ?
11 Cut the following in the larger heart backing paper: 1 ( 19.2 cms x 19.2 cms) for centre panel, 4 ( 8.7 cms x 19.2 cms) for outer panels back and front of card.
From the SMALLER heart backing paper cut 2 ( 8.7 cms x 19.2 cms) and 2 ( 6.7 cms x 19.2 cms)
Layer all these on the pink pearl card panels as follows:
1 ( 20 x 20 cms) for middle panel, 6 ( 9.5 cms x 20 cms) and 2 ( 7.5 cms x 20 cms)
Adhere all the relevant finished panels to the front of the card as per the photo above ! Cor ! You are doing well.
12 Adhere panels and picture to back and perhaps your name ! The picture is the middle sized one on the sheet of toppers
13 The fun bit ! Assemble your marker pens, brush and some water. A tile is handy to rub some of the colour on to before dipping your wet brush in to the colour
14 Stamp our gorgeous little Bunny in Versafine on to water colour paper. I have made a pink version but this is YOUR card so feel free. Apply colour in a wash like way and build up the colours as you go.
15 Cut out little Bunny. Oh ! Is he cute ?? Well I think so.
16 Using the ever popular Nestabilities cut a circle in white and the scalloped one in pink pearl card. Cut out your cot pictures and layer them on to pink pearl card. Assemble all your goodies such as pictures of the cot etc., The picture for the centre panel is the LARGEST on the topper sheet and the side panel on the front is the SMALLEST.
17 Pop some sticky fixers on the back of all your pieces. REMEMBER only on HALF the scalloped shape or you might stick your card together where you do not want to !
18 Well ! Here we have it ! THE FINISHED CARD. Congratulations ! Sit back and admire your FABULOUS handiwork !!!!
Hope you enjoy your finished result. Wishing you very best wishes,
