Happy Friday my wonderful friends! Thank you so much for joining me today! I’m still over the moon creating with this months release and special Stamp of the Month from Pink & Main! It’s packed with summer which, to me, means bright and happy everywhere!
Today I have a card and coordinating tag to share with you featuring the Stamp of the Month – Sunny Smiles, the new Fancy Tag dies and a previously released Stained Glass stencil for fun!
For those that don’t know me well, I’m a panda fanatic…put it with my name and you’ll figure out why it’s been a thing since I was little. ❤ Needless to say, I had to color up this sweet bear from Sunny Smiles just like an adorable panda ready for some fun in the sun! But that pup in the pool is just the sweetest so I snagged him too and thought, why not make a card and tag! It’s so fun!
So I stamped the images and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. Next, I die cut the pieces for my two matching tags using the new Fancy Tag dies and used EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhere the layers. Then I stamped my sentiments in black ink and popped my images up with foam squares.
Next, I took an A2 size panel and inked up the Stained Glass stencil with yellow ink. Then I took my blending brush and added a light shadow of the same ink all around the edges. I used EZ Squeeze glue to adhere this to a white card base, tied some orange ribbon through the hole in the tag and popped it in place with foam tape.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the pup’s eyes, glossy accents to his nose, water splashes and sunglasses. Then I took star dust Stickles to his cheeks and the highlights on the pool just for fun.
For the coordinating tag, I added the image and sentiment banner with foam squares and tied the same orange ribbon through the hole. Then I moved on to just a few finishing touches on this too.
Especially with the panda’s dark fast, I used the black glaze pen on his eyes and glossy accents on his nose. I think this really helps them pop and brings him to life a little bit. I also added glossy accents to his sunglasses.
