Frame and Card - by Guest DT Lane Herron

Hello crafters. We are back today to share with you the two latest creations that our Guest Designer Lane has been working on.

Swimming Frame

Lane wanted to bring you something different! Something unique! And I definitely think he managed that when he came up with the idea of using the special Swim chipboard pieces to alter this plain black photo frame.

He started off by simply painting the "Lane Rope" pieces white and then randomly adding some glue and Blue Glitter on top. "My Mum thinks it looks weird because it's not all covered in Blue Glitter, but I think it's just because it looks awesome and it was my idea, not hers!"

The swimmer piece was coated several times with Silver Opal embossing powders. He learnt this technique by watching his Mum on another project a few months ago.  He did about 4/5 layers of the Opal powder, as he was finding it difficult to get rid of some of the holes. He eventually gave up and "will live with that".

Then the medal / ribbon piece he heat embossed Gold. "I tried to double layer it like the Opal powder, but that didn't work the same"

Easel Card

Although Lane just celebrated his own Birthday (the big 13!), he is already looking forward to his little brothers birthday at the end of June.
The only Memory Maze chipboard on this card is those cool flag banners in the top corner. As soon we he saw these, he knew that he wanted to make a special card. He simply painted them White.
We looked through some different designs and he settled on the Easel fold. Using Hunter's favourite paper, he dry embossed the pattern paper for the card topper.
The tag on the side has a happy birthday stamped on it and Hunter's favourite character is Iron Man,  "ohhhh YES, jackpot!" when he found this piece in the scrap pile.
