To start making this card, I applied a piece of 2.5" Tear-ific Tape across a piece of cardstock, removed the protective backing and applied Cloud Nine Microfine Glitter to the exposed adhesive. I burnished it well with my finger tool! :)
Next, I had a little fun! I grabbed my Stazon Ink and stamped the sentiment randomly across the glitter! How fun is that? It created a fun background and my sentiment in one step! Next, I applied 4 rows of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape (2 on the top and 2 across the bottom) and applied Berry Bliss Embossing Powder. I heated it and created my border. For the background piece, I simply ran a piece of green cardstock through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. Then I applied Spring Green Embellishment Mousse AND Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse to add dimension and shine.
I stamped the flowers onto white cardstock with Versafine Black Ink and watercolored (my new fave technique it appears - haha!). Once the flowers were dry, I added a touch of Diamond Dust Glitter, adhering with my Medium Glue Pen AND I also added some Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse randomly on the leaves.
The flowers were added to the card using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and all the layers were also adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. I finished off the card with accents of the Bright Gold Crystal Drops.
I hope you enjoy this card! I'm looking forward to sharing a SUPER cute mermaid card with you next week!
I'm so excited to be here on the Cross Canada Blog Hop! Hello from sunny Saskatchewan!!!
I'm featuring the new release paper from Close to My Heart called "Little Dreamer". You should have made it to my blog from Brandy's Blog. I was so lucky to recently meet Brandy at Spring Up! She's so sweet, talented and amazing! :) I look forward to being able to connect and meet more of my Close to My Heart sisters in the future. I'm so blessed to be in the midst of such talent.
Here is what I created:
I used a variety of Little Dreamer accessories on this card! The sentiment panel was cut right from the Paper Pack (I love the Picture My Life cards that are included in the paperpack!). It made a perfect background, I had stamped and cut out a bunch of unicorns last week, so he was easy to grab and add to the card. The flower, hearts and star came from the Complements pack and of course you need add Glitter Gems to EVERYTHING! hehehe
I added an accent of White & Gold Ribbon along the bottom for a little extra umph.
To start this card, I stamped the flower image all along the panel using Versafine Ink and then watercolored using oranges and greens.I allowed this to dry and then using the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen, I adhered some Diamond Dust Glitter to the centers of the flowers.
I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder. I love how all the coppers and oranges work together! I used 1/2" Tear-ific Tape along the outside edges of my background paper, removed the protective backing and sprinkled on the Tiger Orange Glitter, burnishing it in well with my finger tool. I love making border edges with this technique!
I adhered my focal panel to the backing using the 1/2" Tear-ific Tape. I used one more layer of white cardstock and adhered a strip of the Tear-ific Tape along the top. Once I removed the protective backing, I added the Sunkissed Copper Gilding Flakes (I LOVE THESE!) and burnished in. I just thought it would add a ribbon-like effect. All the panels were attached with 1/2 Tear-ific Tape.
Now, onto my flower! Using one of my many flower Big Shot Dies, I cut out the flower layers with my Sticker Paper! I peeled the protective backing off each piece and added Daisy Microfine Glitter to the largest, Tiger Orange Microfine Glitter to the second, Orange Surprise Glitter to the third, and to the smallest, middle flower I inked it up with Versamark Ink and embossed with Copper Embossing Powder!
I added small slits to the edges of the petal to curl them in more and scrunched them up a bit. Each layer was adhered using piece of - you guessed it - 1/2" Tear-ific Tape! (I LOVE THIS STUFF TOO!). I added the flower to the panel to set it off and tied some twine around the top.
Finally, dots of Orange Marmalade Jewel Drops were added to the corners and to the flowers.
I hope you enjoy this card! I had a lot of fun making it!
I'm extra proud of my coloring on this one! I colored her with ShinHan Twin Touch Markers and I felt like my shading was pretty cool :) Baby steps, right? I hope you love this card as much as I do! See you next time!
