(This is a 2nd post for the day, please click HERE to check out my 1st post.) Hello there! Welcome to a fun blog hop to celebrate Spellbinders’ new release! Lots of designers including me have so many projects to share with you all and hope you’ve been enjoying hopping along so far. If you came from Tiffany’s blog, you are on the right track! If you are just starting, no worries – you can just follow me along to make a full circle. Let’s dive into the project!
One of the main reasons that I create cards is to brighten up someone’s day and let them know how important they are. I believe a bit of encouragement can really boost someone’s mood as well – and what better way to do so with a shiny, elegant card?
I used two different stamp sets to create today’s card: the Feather Cool Vibes Set and the Light Shine Cool Vibes Set. Detailed feather images and the lovely sentiments truly make the card one of a kind.
I wanted something bright to be the background of the card to help the gold embossed images pop – so I used the Broken Chian Distress Oxide Ink and the Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink and blended two colors onto a watercolor paper. After adding the color layers, I splattered clean water to let the oxidation happen – you can something super bright and bleached effect when working with them.
The feather images were stamped in Embossing Ink and heat set with the Antique Gold Embossing Powder. I paired the card front with the Gold Foil cardstock to match the gold embossed image. The sentiment was stamped on a black cardstock and heat set with the Pure White Embossing Powder. I added a few of sequins near the sentiment to grab attention. The sentiment piece was cut using the Cascading Circles Etched Die.
