Hey everyone. It’s Dana here with you. I’m so excited about the sneak peeks this week. The June 2019 release is going to be amazing. So let me give you a peek of my card using the Travel Buddy stamp set
I don’t make a lot of scene cards but when I do I want them to be this much fun. I stamped out my little girl from the Travel Buddy stamp set and stamped out a little town to have her zooming through. To start my card I stamped out my little girl onto Copic Xpress It paper and colored her with Copic markers. Next I made a mask for her to keep her clean while I stamped out the map and homes. I also masked the map so it would be in front of the homes. Then I drew on the street and curb. I decided to add some sky color behind my homes so I carefully masked them out and sponged on a light layer of distress ink. I colored each home in a happy color and added in some grass using the tip of my Copic marker to make sure I achieved the blades of grass and not just a green flat color. I used gray shades of markers for my street.
Once I was complete with the scene, it was time to build up the card. I pulled out the soon to be released Reversed Scallop rectangles dies to make this the border around the image. I carefully glued it this frame over my image and set it side to dry while I worked on my sentiment. I stamped out one of the sentiments from the set onto white card stock with black ink. I trimmed down this piece and placed it over one of the homes. I didn’t want to stamp the sentiment directly on the card as I wanted to pull in some white onto the scene piece. All that was left was to add a card base. I used a white card base for this card as it wasn’t really going to be seen behind this pretty panel. I added just a few colorful gems to this card and it was now complete.
Here is a closeup of my card. Isn’t she just the cutest? I added some white gel pen for some interest to her dress and the scooter. I truly Loe how this card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure to swing back by tomorrow to see what there other ladies have in store for you. Have a great day everyone.
For my card, I created a watercolor background using Color Burst powders. I stamped, cut and copic colored the fish, plant, and shell images from the new Fintastic stamp set and coordinating dies then added a few sequins.
Using one of the new Reverse Scallop Rectangle die, I cut navy blue cardstock and placed a piece of acetate behind it. I then ‘popped up’ the frame and placed it on top of the ocean scene. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but the card looks like the fish are in an aquarium.
Summer means flip flops and sunglasses and water for me. I am actually just preparing for a mini vacation in the Alps in Austria with my kids and friends and imagining the crystal clear lakes there inspired my card.
I started with creating the lake scene: I cut an A2 sized piece from the water patterned paper and a small strip from the wooden one. I used 3D foam tape to pop up the wooden panel on the background as if it was the pier.
I die cut the flip flop base from blue fun foam and added the topper from white cardstock. I embellished it with a flower sequin. The sunglasses I die cut 3 times from peacock cardstock and once from black to inlay as a glass.
I cut a corner of a special fun foam which is furry and reminded me of a fluffy towel. On this I adhered the sunglasses, the glass part I filled with glossy accents for extra shine and tuck a seashell under it which I die cut from Desert Storm cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.
On the water I adhered a die cut Sunshine sentiment and stamped the rest from the coordinating stamp set above it with black ink. A few iridescent jewels finished this cool card.
I hope you like today’s sneak peek and inspiration. Get your shopping lists ready as all the new release products will be available tomorrow!
Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Pink and Main’s anothe sneak peek with the amazing stamp set named, Fintastic. I hope you’ve been enjoying all the sneaks this past week and are excited for the new release (tomorrow!)
For the card I’m sharing today, I start with two pieces of a 4 x 5.25 card panels. I wanted to stamp this large fish bowl in the same position. For the top panel, I used a pair of scissors to cut out the main fish bowl area so I could create a shaker card. I also wanted to add a bit of interest to the front panel so I pulled out the Mermaid Tail stencil from the new release to add a patterned look.
I stamped out one of the fishes from the set and colored in the fish bowl. Now the card is ready to be put together. To create a shaker, I put acetate on the front panel and to adhere it together, I used two layers of foam tape and used different little bits that I knew would move nicely inside.
This definitely is a super fun card and this set is a larger one with many varieties of fishes and a large fish bowl. I love the possibilities with this one!
Keep stopping by the blog to see more inspiration from the design team using the new release. Trust me, this is an amazing summer release!
Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!
Closer look at these fun images and all the detail in the photos and map and this is not even the entire set there are more fun images to create with. The entire June release is AWESOME and you are going to love it. Remember release day is June 20th.
I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers and gave them some dimension with foam adhesives. I used a misc embossing folder on this cool new The Shore designer paper. The entire paper pad is so cool and great for Summer.
