Create Layered Diorama Cards

Tags:
card making, cards, crafts, easter, layered,

These designs represent a continuous theme, capturing a particular moment in time. The colourful greetings and accessories use a built up 3-D structure to draw the eye towards the scene within. Bright shades and faded effects produce an inviting tone that the recipient will not be able to resist. This initial outline is embellished with complementary markings as well as fine detailing on the central motif. The elephant is a symbol of huge strength, stature, wisdom and courage ­ making this a great gesture for a loved one. Relief paint is a fantastic material to use when adding final touches to any greeting and make the rich image really stand out.

Stacked Designs

Tags:
card, crafts, easter, painting, pattern, spring,

Celebrate the new season with these irresistible stacked designs illustrated with beautiful paintwork

Easter cards don’t necessarily have to feature chicks and bunnies! Using a different approach will certainly make your greetings stand out by a mile. Spring florals in muted tones are a new take on an old classic. Encasing these beautiful layered blooms in an egg-shaped aperture keeps the project traditional whilst the individual motifs are anything but! Busy floral motifs are very much on trend right now. All the big fabric designers, from Cath Kidston to the latest Liberty prints, feature wonderful eccentric floral patterns. The shapes shown in this project are inspired by early 20th century Russian textiles, where bold shapes and outlines produce striking effects, perfect for the delicate stacked effect here.

The little gift box makes the ideal companion and craftily conceals a chocolate treat!

Helen Philipps works up a springtime gift set with a novel twist

Got the stitch itch? We’ve got just the project for you! This embroidered Easter trio would make the perfect gift for a kiddie’s birthday, but do be careful of the buttons. Our advice is: if in doubt, replace with thread - simply sew little round circles or flowers instead of any easily-swallowed embellishments. Helen’s project is also a great one for newbie stitchers as her designs are small-scale and super easy to follow. Once you’ve got your confidence up, why not adjust the dimensions and work up the cute leaping bunny as a wall hanging? You could even sew the little tot’s name and birthday underneath the rabbit for a personal touch.

Add a touch of elegance this Easter with hand-painted

Long before Easter, eggs were viewed as a sign of rebirth in many cultures; Greeks, Chinese, Persians and Egyptians gave each other dyed eggs every spring as symbols of life and vitality after the winter, with Christians later adopting this. These designs, set in chalky pastels and inspired by vintage French lace, feathers and roses, are keepsakes that can be reused year after year.
