YouTube Live REPLAY Crafting with Liz – Biggest Wish and Sweet Symmetry. A few days ago I made a few cards, using the Biggest Wish stamp set and the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper, during a YouTube Live Video. I love sharing my creative process with other, especially LIVE so I can involve them in some of the decision making. It is not the same as crafting face to face, but it is still great fun. Why not come along one day? If you subscribe to my YouTube Channel and ask to be sent Alerts you will get an email telling you when I ‘go live’ and when I post a new video.
This is the card I made before I started the Live Video, just to get how I was going to put the cards together. Getting a basic layout and then making a few cards using the same principles is a great time saver. By changing a few of the elements you can get a totally different feel in the project. I started by die cutting the Sweet Symmetry paper with one of the Basic Borders Dies. This gives you two edges from one pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, such a time saver.
The reverse of the paper from the first card was the basis for this card. This time, rather than fussy cutting the script sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set, I stamped it over the block sentiment. I added some of the crosses that are in the stamp set as embellishments. As I felt that the left side of the card needed ‘something’, I simply added a border of the reverse of the paper. I only spotted that I had added this upside down as I wrote this post!
All of the patterned papers have a monochrome reverse to them, so if you find them a bit too bright for your project, why not see if the ‘B Side’ is more suitable. For this card I went with the classic Navy and White combination. To get the ends of the twine to do what I wanted, I simply added a few dots of liquid adhesive to the paper and then stuck the twine in place. A few Basic Pearls finish this card off.
So, the Night of Navy card is probably the ‘quietest of the cards I made. Using the reverse of the same paper brings us to the brightest. I don’t think I would have thought of combining Just Jade with Calypso Coral without the inspiration of the paper. But you know what? It works, and adding more Just Jade by bringing in the ribbon and Square embellishments helps to make if feel really ‘intentional’.
So what do you think? Have I converted you to the papers? Having seen some of the comments on my YouTube Video, I think a few people are looking at it through different eyes now, including myself!
