Hi everyone, it's been quiet here for the past week, but we were hanging out on Instagram. When I am not here, that's where you can find me and also know what the goings-on in my life - our little vegetable garden, our adorable fur ball Princess Kiara - all make regular appearances there. I'd love for you to hang out with me. :)
Okay, let's go over to today's card. Shall we? I decided to combine the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for August 2021 with my digital stamps. I had these images lying around my table waiting to be colored and used. When I made my previous project with them, I had this set left over. The dies this month from SDOM reminded me of a garden lattice and that's how I used them. To give an appearance of a wall against which the lattice is propped up, I used the Blistered embossing folder (also from Spellbinders) because it gives the feel of an old, cement wall. Here's the final result:
Grateful to You 4x8 stamp set (at Maker Forte)
Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Membership (at Spellbinders)
Use MS PowerPoint to size and print images. Fussy cut and color using your favorite medium. I used inktense pencils for these.
Using a black glittery cardstock, cut out the hexagonal lattice using dies from Spellbinders SDOM For August 2021.
Trim a panel to be 5.5" x 4.25" from blue-gray cardstock. I used one from my stash. Dry emboss it using the Blistered embossing folder and ink edges using Stormy Sky Distress Oxide ink.
Using a small scrape of paper, create a banner. Add a little bit of color using the same colors of inktense pencils and let it dry completely. Stamp the sentiment "To my friend" using Eclipse Black ink from Maker Forte.
Assemble the card front, mount it on a card base and add sequins to finish it off. :-)
