It’s Wednesday, and this week, we are celebrating a brand new August 2020 Release with variety of fun new images! Be sure to go and check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
Today, I’m using Dreamy Dragon – SLF019 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for my main image from this new release along with the sentiment Magic Friendship – F234 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps). This little dragon looks so peaceful and it looks like he’s found a new friend too!
To make my card this week, I started out with a simple white card sized at 5.5″ x 5.5″. Then cut Recollections – Petite Floral paper to the same size and taped it down onto the base card. Next, Kraftin’ Kimmie – Purple Petunia ink was used to ink around the card. Another piece was cut from the same paper collection at 1.25″ x 5.5″ and Kraftin’ Kimmie – Party Peach ink was used to ink around the edges. The cardstock was put through my Xyron Create a Sticker and then mounted on top of the base card.
Next, My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and my Cuttlebug were used to die cut the scalloped circle background out of Recollections – Purple Passions and circle for the main image out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. The main image and sentiment were both stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black Ink using my MISTI. The image was coloured in with Copic markers and then the sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Sentiment Label Dies. I traced around the outside of the die and then cut it out of the same Recollections – purple paper so that the die cut piece would have a thin border around it. I ran the sentiment through my Xyron and adhered it directly on top of it. I cut off one side of the label so that it would be flush with the edge of the card. The same purple ink used earlier was used again to edge around it. The image, sentiment and large scalloped circle was then popped up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
Once this was done, Stickles – Purple was used to go around the edges of the large scallop and Stickles – Icicle was used to go around the main image. Lastly, a few flowers from Crafts – Mini Fabric Flower Picks were added to finish off the card.
