Hello friends! There are only 24 hours left until the amazing October Release from My Favorite Things becomes available! I have two fun but simple cards to share with you today.
My first card features the new Polar Opposites Stamp Set combined with the new Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas Stamp. I stamped my two bears and their hats onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them quickly with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
Copic Color Combos Used:
- White: 0, C00, C0, C2
- Reds: R14, R46, R89
- Blues: B000, B01, B04
I then trimmed a piece of Smooth White Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and blended it with some Distress Oxide Inks. I started with Broken China at the top of my card and blended downward to my lightest color, Tumbled Glass. I then masked off the area where I wanted to stamp my sentiment (with a piece of scrap paper) and splattered my background with diluted white and blue paints. Once dry, I then trimmed this piece with the A2 Stitched Rectangle Die-namics Set 1, stamped my sentiment, and added my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Tape.
For my second project, I created a fun shaker card that features the new Framed Greetings Cover-Up Die-namics combined with the Mini Merry Messages Stamp Set. For the coloring, I used a piece of red card stock and blended it with Candied Apple, Fired Brick, and Black Soot Distress Inks. Once dry, I then diecut it with the Framed Greetings Cover-Up Die-namics and then splattered it lightly with diluted Opaque White Paint.
I created a frame on a base 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of white card stock by adding thin strips of 3D Foam Adhesive Tape around the perimeter. Next, I added my embellishments and then my piece of acetate to hold in the embellishments. Lastly, I used liquid adhesive to add my Cover-Up piece on top of the acetate along with the center piece to which I had heat embossed the sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.
