Hello friends! I am sharing two cards today that feature the gorgeous Botanical Backdrop Die from Sunny Studio Stamps.
For my first card, I created a fun shaker card and combined the Botanical Backdrop Die with the cute Magical Mermaids Stamp Set. I thought that the leafy frame could pass as some ocean foliage and nicely frame a little underwater scene. I colored all of my images with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the underwater background, I blended some Distress Inks (Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Dusty Concord) onto a sheet of Ranger White Watercolor Paper. I then spritzed this panel lightly with water, blotted it dry with a paper towel and then set it aside to completely dry.
Once my background was ready, I added some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape around the edges and added my embellishments. I heat embossed my sentiment with Super Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a sheet of Heat Resistant Acetate. Once I attached the acetate, I then glued the final frame onto the outside of the card.
For my second card, I didn’t do any stamping at all. I simply diecut my images and lightly blended them with some ink. I used the Colorbox Ocean Ink for the green/blue tint and the Colorbox Lemonade Ink for the small yellow flowers.
I added a sheet of the Gingham Pastels Paper Pack to the background and then adhered a 3D version of the sentiment “Hello” by diecutting it 5 times.
