Welcome to another Featured Artist/Designer Spotlight. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Laurie Willison. Before we show you Laurie’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…
Hey there! It’s Laurie Willison from Soapbox Creations. I have been making cards for years but now, officially a blogger for 8 years. I don’t know where the time has gone! During these last 8 years, I have been honored to be on several design teams including my current teams, Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things. I love to make cards but my most favorite part of this hobby are the all the people I have been lucky to have met and now call friends. I am a CAS card maker…I do love all that white space! I have also created a fun die called the Card Hanger Die which is available on my blog for purchase. I love coming over here to Paper Crafters Library to visit and am so happy to be joining in again today!
A Lovely Hello
Hey there! It’s Laurie here today and I am so thrilled to be stopping in at Paper Crafters Library. I have a fun little card to share today using a couple of my favorite techniques.
First, I used a die from PTI to make the card front panel. Next, I randomly scored lines on that panel using my Scor-Pal. I lined that up and attached it to the gray card base using foam tape. I stamped the curve sentiment in black ink so it would pop from the card. I attached the leaf die to the card front using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive. I have a sticky pair of tweezers I use just for adding these delicate dies to the card. I just hold it over my trash can and give it a light spray. Once its on…its on but it is SO much easier to attach. Next, I did a little ombre stamping with Life is Beautiful stamp set and dies.
Here’s a detailed video to see on how I do this technique:
I also cut one more layer in vellum to add between the leaves and the top butterfly layer, just for a little more soft look. And that’s it!
Thanks so much for having me today! Thanks for stopping by!
