Spring Garden (by Corine)

Not really sure where the time goes at the moment, I can't believe that it was last year when our guest designer for this month contributed to this blog.  Anyway it is my great pleasure to once again welcome back Corine van Kuilenburgh with the first of her three designs.


Here I am again. In March I will post three times a card as guest designer. I am very pleased to do this. My first project is a card made with a Gelli Plate Background.

I used stamps from the sheets:

  • Create a background with the Gelli Plate using acrylic paints. 
  • Emboss the big flower from Tangled Garden with embossing powder on the Gelli Plate background. Next stamp the flowers and leaves with Memento Luxe ink and colour the flowers with pencils. Emboss three butterflies on watercolorpaper, colour with markers and then cut out. 
  • Mat and layer to a folded card.
  • Attach the butterflies to the background as shown.
I hope you like this first project, next week I will bring you another design.

Kind regards,
Corine van Kuilenburg

Really love how the white embossing 'pops' on the vivid green background. Thank you for this beautiful project Corine, we look forward to seeing what you have in store for us next week.
