SBDS Spotlight Reece's Scrap Pieces

If you have already signed up to the Stitchy Bear Store Blog  you will be the first to hear of some smashing offers each week. Stitchy is offering some great time sensitive offers so please make sure you are signed up to the newsletter to be the first to get the gossip! In the spotlight this week is April from Reece’s Scrap Pieces.

 All her digi’s are 10% off in the store and if you spend $5 you get this great fabulous pack as a freebie too J

Run to the store as this offer ends Midnight EST on Monday evening 21st November.

The card above has been made using a great digi pack that has the image and both the papers you can see here. I printed the papers onto glossy photo card. This is a large card at A5 size and I am really impressed with how clear and crisp they are.

I coloured the image with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and created 2 more layers for the pretty top mounted on 3d foam. I used the Nestabilities die to create the shape, just using the middle section. I then used the largest one to cut the spotty paper out embossing round the edge. The white mat has been made using the largest size drawn onto the back and I left a border the width of the metal die and cut it our freehand. It was a bit fiddly but I think it has made a more vivid mat than a thinner one would have.

I covered the main card with the heart paper and added a strip of spotty to the centre. The sentiment was added to a scrap of white card to tie in better and I added the flowers and brad combo to the side of the image.

This was a great digi set to work with, they obviously work very well together but are so adaptable and can easily be used independently of one another.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – A5
Image & Papers – Just This Girl by Reece’s Scrap Pieces
Sentiment – Hunky Dory
Embellishments – Ribbon from Docrafts, fabric flower Flora Doodles, crochet flower challenge prize, pearl brad from Papermania
Tools – scissors, 3d foam, Pro/Flexmarkers, Nestabilities dies
Techniques – die cutting, decoupage
