Two For One by Fliss Goodwin



Hi there, I have a project to share today which will show you that if you make a piece of decorated paper a bit larger than the one you need for your project, mine being A5 in size, you will have enough to create a second project and get two for the price of one!


You Will Need: 

Kaisercraft Single Clear Stamps – Butterflies, You and Smile
Distress Inks – Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry
Brusho Crystals – I used Brilliant Red and Orange from the Starter Set


What You Do:


·       Spritz the watercolour paper with water until well dampened. Shake on a tiny amount of each Brusho colour (I recommend piercing the top with a skewer as you only need a very small amount of the highly pigmented powder). The colour will spread and run and if you like you can help it spread further with a paintbrush as I did.

·       Using the orange ink, stencil some of the small flower randomly on the coloured paper. Then, using the pink ink, stencil on a couple of the larger flower.

·       Next apply the white acrylic paint to the circular dot design stamp and stamp on the paper at random, re-applying paint as you go.


·       When the paint is dry, use the tiny dots stencil with the pink and orange inks to add another layer of pattern to the paper.

·       To make the square card, cut the top 6cm off the decorated paper. On the remaining square stamp 3 butterflies as shown with the black ink. Stamp the life sentiment on then distress the edges and swipe the black inkpad around the edge to add definition. Glue to your chosen card blank.

·       The second card was made with the remaining cut off strip. I stamped the smiles sentiment with black ink, distressed and inked the edges as before then added this to a square card blank. I finished off with a butterfly from the set stamped on white card and cut out.


Have a great weekend and see you next week.

  1. Ooh your background is awesome! Two gorgeous cards. I always end up wasting card by cutting to size before I ink - this is such a cool idea! Thank you! xxx
