I got overly excited about all the new goodies so I made 3 cards. This first one is my favorite. These gorgeous flowers and that sentiment are all from one new set called Many Thanks.
I stamped the flowers and leaves in a random pattern and then put the front card panel into my Misti. I stamped the sentiment in black and then stamped it 2 more times just so I could get a solid image. I popped that front panel up on a card base with foam tape to finish if off.
My favorite thing to do on a card is score lines. If you look back, you can see I do this quite often. Such an easy way to add a little detail to a white card base.
I stamped the sun in yellow and then sponged on a darker yellowish orange on the sun beams to give it a little scratchy texturey look. Is texturey a word? :) Then I popped the middle of the sun up after stamping the sentiment. I added in 2 thin strips of black card stock along the bottom of the card for some contrast.
The last card showcases the new Roller Coaster die....
I use my Tim Holtz Blending Tool to sponge on a couple layers of color. The bottom color is Abandoned Coral and the top color is Spiced Marmalade. (All products are linked below). I used some Elmers spray adhesive and coated the back of the roller coaster and then attached it to the colored panel. I used the new Grunge Alphabet to stamp "hello" along the rail in black ink. I popped the panel up on foam tape and attached it to the card base.
I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and am so glad you stopped in! Don't forget to leave a comment on each stop on the hop for multiple chances to win. Your next stop is my sweet friend, Yoosun Hur's blog! Have a great day!
