Over the last few weeks I have had a little fun playing around with all the news stamps and accessories from the 2017 Occasions catalogue and the new Sale-A-Bration stamp sets as well. If you haven't had a chance to check out the new catalogues, click here to download them. Today's card was a fun one to create as I tried to get creative with both the card front background and the fun and easy watercolor background for the sentiment to 'sparkle' on 🙂 I used the 'Celebrate' sentiment from the NEW Love Sparkles stamp set. I think you will like this new stamp set!
How To Make It:
Cut and score the Cucumber Crush card base.
Stamp the stars from the Love Sparkles stamp set with Whisper White ink to create a background on the card base.
Cut the Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the large scallop circle from the Layering Circles Framelits.
Cut the watercolor paper to 2”x3.75” ; Take the Cucumber Crush, Flirty Flamingo and Tempting Turquoise ink pads and press the ink pads into the lids, use the Aqua Painter to pick up the ink dropping colored drops onto the Watercolor paper randomly to create the dotted background.
Allow to dry or use a Heat Tool to speed it up; once dry, stamp the sentiment from the Love Sparkles stamp set using Basic Black ink.
Punch both ends using the Confetti Stars Border Punch.
Add SNAIL Adhesive to the back of the Watercolor Paper and then add a circle of Silver Metallic Thread to the back making sure it shows on the front as you want it to. Then, adhere the scallop circle and then adhere the layers to the card front.
Add some star Subtles Enamel Shapes to the card front to finish it off.
