Label Latch card 'Remi'

From Lara comes 'REMI'

Welcome back to my blog..... my second blog this week 'Whaaaat!'

 Today I am sharing a card I created using a tutorial by Monique Fielder. Monique made the tutorial for a group that I belong to, called 'We Stamp For Lara' . The groups aim is to help raise money for Lara & her parents to purchase items such as better pressure mattress to help make life that little bit more comfortable

Okay firstly. I don't have a pictures for the tutorial I used, as it is a PDF file for charity. But if you would like to join the group for this tutorial, and more fun card making instructions, please follow this link We Stamp For Lara or Contact Pauline Bennetts. It costs $25.00 to join and you get access to the 15 tutorials that will always be available.

Here is a picture of my card :)

Lets get down to the nut's and bolts of 'REMI'.

How I made 'REMI';

 As a creator I have alot of items from other companies, but I do try to use mostly Stampin' Up!® whenever I have the items available.The label on the front is not an SU item, but there is an awesome labels thinlet set available from Stampin' Up!® that I will be purchasing very soon, called 'Lots Of Labels'
  • To start I used Basic black A4 card stock, left full length but trimmed down to 15cm wide.
  • I then scored a line at 8cm on both ends.
  • Using a labels thinlit on the right side I placed it centrally. I only put the first half die through the bigshot. You can cut the rest of the way with scissors to the fold line.
  • Using the Hostess stamp 'Love You Lots'(only available to those lovelies who want to become a hostess for a Stampin' Up!® party or workshop, online or in home. I stamped the lady birds from  this set onto Whisper White thick A4 card stock. I wanted a scene for my cute little lady birds so I grabbed my pen, my ink pads (Real Red, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzaz & my Craft Stampin' Ink Whisper White, ) & I grabbed my aqua painters & got to it.
  • I decided that toadstools would be the easiest to draw. I drew one set for the front...scanned it onto the computer then printed the scanned image. I coloured both images and cut one with my circle thinlits for the right side above the label latch.
  • I placed Real Red card stock over the Basic Black base & topped that with some pretty DSP. I backed the Whisper White stamped & drawn images with Basic Black before placing on top of the DSP.
  • Using my Confetti Hearts border with a scrap of Real Red; I placed the hearts to look like they were falling onto the ladybirds heads.
  • I cut the name 'REMI' & the number '1' using Red Glimmer paper.
  • In my stash of little bits n' bobs (you know the one that we all seem to collect) I found a teeny tiny peg and 2 little wooden ladybirds. 'Fist Pump' and a loud 'YESSSSSS' lol They quickly became added extras for this cute card. 
  • I finished the toadstools with a Wink of Stella in clear and gold.
  • I also used Crystal Effects on  both of the front stamped images for added lift.
  • Around the name 'REMI' I added Rhinestones Basic Jewels (smallest size) to some of the thistle seed centres.
