Ferris Wheel Decoupage Card for Love to Craft Challenge Blog #56 on the 1st of March, 2021


As I was commenting for one of my design teams, I came across Duncan Street Designs by Donna who was doing a week long stash busting challenge. So for my second challenge with Love to Craft Challenge Blog, I decided to look through my stash of magazine freebies and create a couple of cards. I have also used a stamp from my stash of Club La-La Land Crafts from May 2017.

Anyway, here is my card:

It was part of a freebie Trimcraft glitter decoupage kit by Helz Cuppleditch which was in issue 139 of the Papercraft Inspirations magazine from June 2015!!!!

I outlined each piece with B14 and/or YG07 (I can't get away with not using my Copics markers!) and put it all together using foam squares. 
Then for the sentiment, I have coloured a piece of X-Press It Blending card with B12 and outlined with B14, then stamped one of the sentiments from the May 2017 Club La-La Land Crafts kit using Rich Cocoa Memento ink (I think? I didn't write it down, but it looks like Rich Cocoa!)

I have cut a piece of the glitter paper that came with the kit, outlined it with B14 and adhered it to a Kraft square card from Envelope Solutions, then attached the decoupage ferris wheel and sentiment.

Here is another photo showing the glitter more:
