Pink & Main – Sending Sunny Smiles

Happy Friday crafty friends! Today, I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a super fun and summery feeling slimline card. I wanted some stencil texture for my background but not anything bold so I decided to try Glossy Gel on its own. It’s so cool! Have you tried it yet?

To start my card, I stamped and colored images from the new Summer Snow Globe Scenes stamp set and colored them with copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside while I got messy.

I started by inking an oversized panel with teal ink from the top left, fading down to nothing. Then I sprayed the Curly Waves stencil with pixie spray and placed it over the panel. I spread Glossy Gel through the stencil fading like the ink. I removed the stencil, cleaned up and set it aside to dry.

Once the panel was dry, I pulled out the Layered Slim Line dies and cut the largest from orange cardstock and then skipped one and used the next size down to cut the stenciled panel. I splattered the orange and stencil panels with orange ink, then also splattered the stencil panel with the same teal ink for extra texture. Next, I added the images with a combination of foam squares and EZ Squeeze liquid glue on the far right end.

Then, I wrapped orange twine around the other end, stamped and die cut the sentiment and added it with foam squares. I added foam tape to the back of the whole panel, avoiding the twine and popped it up on the orange panel. Finally, I added liquid glue to that and added it to a slimline card base.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the stripe on the surf board, parts of the seashell and the bear’s nose. Then I added black glaze pen to the sun’s eyes and unicorn Stickles to the rays o f the sun and starfish too.

Have you tried out the fun glossy gel yet? I’d love to know in the comments if you always add glitter or flock, or if you’ve tried it alone like I did today.
