Professor Sprout and Mandrakes Card with The Sassy Club

Saturday, November 19, 2022

The Craft Roulette wheel was my bestie this week! I will say I used one parameter a little leniently... But here's what the wheel gave us this week: birthday card; 3 bright and cheery colors; pot(s), pan(s) or bowl(s); and block(s). When I was watching the live, I was feeling thrown off by the pot/pan/bowl parameter. But I went searching through my Sassy Club, found my Magical Teachers stamp set with potted mandrakes and I knew I could make my card with this set!

I started with making my block background with the Checkered Stencil and purple and pink Distress Oxides. I die cut my border out of kraft cardstock and layered different vines together to give it a Herbology Class vibe. I stamped my sentiment where I knew it would fit in the border and above Professor Sprout. Then I tucked in all my stamped images with a mix of foam and wet adhesives.

I colored in my images with a mix of Ohuhu, Spectrum Noir and Colorisita markers. Once they were colored, I added some white gel pen and fussy cut them all out. I added a few final touches of these olive green pearls scattered around the vine border so there would be something with shine - there has to be a little of something shiny on my cards, of course!

This card turned out so sweet and I'm so happy with how this card turned out. I had a lot of fun coloring and figuring out how I wanted the border! It's going to be hard to ever part with this card. How do you think I did with the parameters this week?
