Hi, Welcome to my blog and my part of the Stock Your Stash challenge for Reverse Confetti. The Reverse Confetti challenge page has loads more inspiration and information on how to win a $20 gift certificate to the store. You can find it HERE.
I decided to go a traditional route for this card. For some reason I was drawn to yellow and blue. So I made a baby shower card for a baby boy. First, using my MISTI and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the nested chick from Spring Pals. I then stamped the smaller corner bouquet from Happy Mail. Using my Copic Markers I colored the images in. I added some colored pencil for a bit more texture. I then die cut these two images with the accompanying die cuts.
Next I used some very old yellow polka dot paper and the Circle of Hearts Cover panel to make the back layer. I then die cut some Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock using the Stitched Hex Tag die. Then using my 2nd to largest Life Changing Blender brush from Picket Fence Studios, I blended Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks. I used the bigger brush to get a lighter effect. The smaller you go in brush size the heavier the application of ink. I spritzed on some Sheer Shimmer spray and let it dry so there is a subtle shine on the tag. I then die cut another piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock using the Bubbles Confetti Cuts die. This die is fast becoming a favorite accent die for me for any type of card.
Once I had all the panel and images prepared, I took the Welcome, Little One sentiment from Bear Hugs and lined it up in my MISTI making sure that I had the nest and floral images in the right place. This was a breakthrough for me as I often think of the sentiment last and this time I had a plan lol!
To assemble the card, I added 3M Foam tape to the back of the die cut panel. Then using dry adhesive I added the Bubbles die cut. I then added 3M Foam tape to the back of the tag and popped that on. I also added foam tape to the floral bouquet. With some dry adhesive I tucked the nest and the chick into the bouquet.
