Follow Your Dreams | Happy Adventure| CTD#488

I participated in this week’s color throwdown challenge CTD#488.  I had a lot of fun creating.

The card front was made by using our Gel Press (JM-0107), Brayer (TO-0087) Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076), Shimmer Gold Splash(IP-0081)  and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint (JM-0106).   [I learned this technique on the Fun Stampers Journey – Try-day Friday post on Facebook].  After that dried I adhered it to a Pool Play (CS-0092) card base. The I added a strip of Kiwi Slice (CS-0016).

The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set [definitely on my top 10 list] and was stamped in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Whip Cream cardstock.  I colored the truck in using Pineapple Smoothie Splash (IP-0080), Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) with water in the barrel.  The flowers in the truck were colored in with Just Write Gels (JD-0060).  I popped that up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085). 

Using Lemon Drop (CS-0018) cardstock and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) I cut out the sun and stamped the sentiment from the Blue Skies (SS-0574) stamp set in Black Licorice ink.  The clouds were cut out of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock using the Cloud Dreams (DI-0032) dies.  Those were popped up using Foam Squares.  I added a Whip Cream Thread (AC-0128) bow to the sun and the card was finished.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Follow Your Dreams

I am big into inspirational sayings. They can really be the pick me up that someone needs as they go through their own life challenges.

For this card I used the Dreams Follow (SS-0508) stamp set [there is a coordinating die set available and it does come in a bundle].  I love how different some of the images look, almost embroidered.  I started with a piece of Banana Cream (CS-0087) cardstock and stamped the sentiment with Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  I then stamped the butterfly in Tangerine Fusion (IP-0005) ink and then using our Small Dauber (TO-0137), I added some Black Licorice ink around the edges of the butterfly before stamping it onto the Banana Cream piece.  I added some Bronze (IP-0091) and Gold (IP-0096) silk.  This panel was then adhered to a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003) cardstock and adhered to a Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) card base.

Fashion Gold accents (AC-0292)

I couldn’t decide what other accents I wanted to add so I made two cards, one with our Fashion Gold (AC-0292) and the other with our Sea Stones (AC-0283).  I can’t decide which one I like better because they both add a special element all their own.

Sea Stone Accents (AC-0283)

I hope you give this card a try using the technique that I did on the butterfly.  It really gives it a different look.
