Woo-hoo! Happy Friday crafty friends! We did it! We made it through another awesome week. Today I’m popping in with a bit of summery fun inspiration featuring stamps, dies, a stencil and an embossing folder from the most recent Pink & Main release! Phew! That’s a lot of goodies but it’s SOOOO COOL! Let’s check it out.
I started by stamping my Stay Cool image and then used the coordinating stencil to apply ink over the different areas with a blending brush, essentially “coloring” in my image. I know there are other products out there like this but this is my first time trying it and I was totally blown away! It was so fun and easy to do! Next, I used the coordinating die to cut the image out, along with a sentiment from the set too.
Switching gears to my background, I cut a circle from white cardstock using the Layered Circles dies and another from orange cardstock using the Zig Zag Circle dies. I ran the white one through my die cutter with the Roundabout embossing folder to add fun texture to it. Then I went over the whole thing with a blending brush and light purple ink. I used EZ Squeeze liquid glue to adhere the circled together and popped my image up on it with foam tape.
Next, I ink blended some seedless preserves distress oxide ink around the edge of an A2 panel and spritzed it with water. Then I popped the zig zag circle up with foam tape and added my sentiment below that with foam squares. To finish everything off, I added some orange twine around the top of the card and tied it in a bow. I also used a scattering of enamel dots across the design for a little extra shine and interest, tying in colors from the ink blending.
