Hello, crafty friends! I have a birthday card to share with you that features the new Fluffy Clouds Die Set from Sunny Studio Stamps. I love how you have the option to diecut a cloud from card stock or just add gorgeous cloud stitching as a subtle effect to your card.
I chose to do both today. As you can see in the photos, there are some stitched outlines of clouds that lightly cover the background. I also added a few puffy white clouds to pop out on the ink-blended sky.
I started by stamping my images from both the Love Monkey and A Bird’s Life Stamp Sets with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then used some Copic Sketch Markers to color everything. I used the coordinating Love Monkey and A Bird’s Life Dies to cut them out.
For my background, I blended some Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks onto some smooth white card stock. I then splattered this image with some water and blotted it dry with a clean paper towel after letting it sit for a minute. I also splattered this panel with some diluted Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink and Opaque White Paint for some added interest.
Once this panel was dry, I then began to diecut my stitched-only clouds into the background. I added my white puffy clouds and diecut images to the front of my card with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares to give them some dimension. Lastly, I heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a strip of black card stock.
I hope you enjoyed my card! Thanks so much for dropping by today and have a wonderful weekend! If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don’t forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!
