Take Time to Relax by Shona

Hi there,

I'm so glad you stopped by today. Today's card features three Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Sets, two from the May Reveal: Cruisin' Digi 949, Sand Dune Silhouettes 940 and one older Set 404, Ocean Treasures. This card shows not only how to work with more than one stamp set at a time, but also how digis and rubber can work together.

 

To begin with I printed out the version of the Cruisin' digi. After fussy cutting the car I applied Versamark and heat set with Clear Detail. I repeated this step and then after applying Versamark a third time, I heat set with Super Thick Clear. You need to heat from beneath to stop the thicker granules of embossing powder from flying off the project. This gave our car a lovely shine. 

 

I stamped my sand dune scene, starting with the sand dune stamp and then the grasses in the bottom left, then the little grass from the Ocean Treasures Set in the bottom right. All of these stamps were stamped in Versafine Clair Acorn. I then cut a line along the horizon of the scene.

 

Memento inks were applied directly to paper to color the sand.

 

When the inks were dry I took a brush and applied Brushable Glue on top of the sand and applied Sparkling Sands Flocking to give the sand some texture and sparkle.

 

The sentiment and birds were arranged on the stamp platform and were stamped with the Versafine Clair Acorn Brown again directly to the blue cardstock that I was going to use as the background.

 

The blue panel was attached to a Kraft card base then the sand dune scene was taped down with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. The car was added with mounting foam to finish off my card for the day.
