Elizabeth Craft Designs' July Design Team Challenge - Stand Up Helpers
The Elizabeth Craft Designs' Design Team was challenged to make a card using any of their Stand Up Helpers. I decided to use the newly released Stand Up Helpers Set 2 for my card along with Peel-Off stickers for my main image.
Place the Peel-Off sticker on white card stock that has Double Sided Adhesive on it, cover with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter then color with markers. Coloring on glitter is really fun! Here's a video from Els showing how to color on Silk Microfine Glitter. From green card stock, cut 2 Stand Up Helpers and 1 Thinking of You Stand Up Helper and cut them away from excess card stock as shown.
To use the negative image of the Peel-Off Sticker you will need a Transfer Sheet - you can just barely see it in the photo - burnish the pieces to the Transfer Sheet and then stick the pieces to your project. I use a bone folder to help stick the pieces to the Transfer Sheet and to stick the pieces down on my project. Here's a video from Els, showing how to use Transfer Sheets.
Here you can see that I have the whole image on the Transfer Sheet and ready to put on my project. When transferring, slowly lift up the Transfer Sheet to make sure all the pieces are sticking to your project, if they aren't, then burnish again with a bone folder.
Viola, now I have all the pieces on my project. Place Gold Border Lines around the edges, use Dimensionals to adhere the leaf. Cover the Stand Up Helpers on base card with the green Helpers that you had cut. Finish the card by adhering the rest of the items to your card.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and feel inspired to try the Stand Up Helpers for fun & easy easel cards.
