Happy Friday my friends!!! I’m so glad we’ve made it through another week! And bonus, today I get to share a super fun sneak peek with you of the upcoming June release with Pink & Main. It is absolutely fantastic and I can’t get enough of it!
Check out that fantastic new flamingo from the stamp set Stand Tall coming your way! Oh, and don’t miss that bold and beautiful Aloha die cut with a perfect shadow behind it! That die set is absolutely amazing!
To create my card today, I stamped my flamingo and colored it with copic markers. Then I used the coordinating die to cut it out and set it aside. Next, I die cut the word aloha from black cardstock three times and glued them together with EZ Squeeze liquid adhesive. I die cut the shadow from vellum and glued the two together.
For that fabulous background, I ink blended distress oxides in blueprint sketch, salty ocean and peacock feathers. Then spritzed it with water and let it dry. Once it was completely dry, I ran it though my die cut machine with the basket cover die. This immediately made me think of a shaker card so I cut a piece of acetate and glued it to the back, then lined the edges with foam strips.
I sprinkled in some white primrose confetti bits and sealed it up with a white cardstock backing. Moving on to assembly, I used EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhere the shaker to a white card base, then also adhere my die cut sentiment and flamingo.
Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the flamingo’s beak and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to his cheek. Then I glued down a scattering of starlight gems in yellow and orange.
Oh, you guys…I really can’t wait for you to see all of the goodness this release holds! Stay tuned to the Pink & Main blog for more sneak peeks from other DT members. It’s all going to be wonderful to see!
