Hello, everyone! It’s time to start the countdown for the My Favorite Things August Release! I know I say this every time, but this release is filled with so many amazing new products!
My card today features new Interactive Up & Down Die-namics combined with the Carousel Horses and Carousel Die-namics. How genius is this new interactive die?? When you pull on the tab, the horses go up and down just like a real carousel! It’s so much fun, you’re going to love it!
Here’s a short video clip to see how the card looks when in real motion. It’s pretty addictive to play with lol.
To start, I first blended some Distress Oxide Inks (Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac) onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110 lb Card Stock. For those of you that have been following me, you know that this is my “go-to” card stock for both ink blending and coloring. I then splattered this panel with some water and blotted it dry with a paper towel after letting it sit for about a minute. To give this background a little more interest, I then splattered it lightly with some diluted Opaque White Paint and some Purple Watercolor Paint.
For my images, I stamped the Carousel Horses onto another sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copics and then used the coordinating Carousel Horses Die-namics to cut them out. I also diecut a carousel from some Neenah Card Stock using the Carousel Die-namics. I then again used Copics to color both the tented top and the base of the carousel.
There is a wonderful video tutorial by Laura Dovalo HERE that shows you how to use this new interactive die.
