Happy Adventure

I LOVE how this card turned out.  I hope you do too.  I used a lot of different stamps on this card but to me it was worth it.  Don’t fret, there is a video as well.

I used Cool Pool (CS-0118) for the card base and added a Black Licorice (CS-003) card panel to the front.  On a Whip Cream (CS-0040) I stamped the following images:

Ink Splat (AT-0108) stamp to make the dirt.  I stamped the smaller end into Oatmeal Cookie (IP-0011) and stamped it onto the card panel.  I cleaned the stamp and then stamped it in Hazelnut Blend (IP-0012) and offset the stamping a bit to give it more of a 2 tone dirt look.

Trees (from the Fresh Forest Stamp Set (SS-0487) = the large one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel.  The small one was stamped in Kiwi Slice (IP-X0024 and then stamped directly onto the card panel.

Sunshine (My Sunshine ATS (AT-0286) = was stamped in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink, stamped off on a scrap sheet of paper before being stamped onto the card panel.

I used the decorative Circle images from the Sunday Morning Stamp Set (SS-0570) in Cool Pool (IP-0074) ink.  On a scrap piece of Whip Cream card stock, I stamped the circle images before stamping the Scenic Route sentiment (AT-0287) in Black Licorice ink.  The ends were flagged before adhering it to the panel.  I used a piece from the Sweet Romance Tape (AC-0290) [this is a Bloom Benefit that you can get free with an order of $100 or more].

Happy Adventure2

The truck came from the Happy Adventure (SS-0565) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink.  I used a Blending Brush (TO-0098) and some splashes to color in the truck.   Watermelon Fusion Splash (IP-0083) to color in the tail lights.  Shimmer Silver Splash (IP-0082) was used to color in the bumper and Cool Pool Splash (IP-0076) was used to color in the truck.  I used Just Write Gels (JD-0060) to color in the flowers in the truck bed.  Using the Detail Pro Shears (TO-0063), I cut out the truck and popped it up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

The inside sentiment comes from the Happy Sentiments (SS-0304) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink onto a Whip Cream panel.

Star of Wonder | Fresh Forest

I love being out in nature.  It definitely is my go to place when I need to recharge.

I enjoy making nature type cards for the holidays.  Last year I did a Raspberry Berry color, this year I went with Denim Days.  I love how you get a different look with each color.

Using the 1″ circle punch (TO-0013), I punch out a mask from a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) to make the moon.  I gently adhered this piece to a Whip Cream card panel.  Taking my Denim Days (IP-0010) ink pad, I applied the pad directly to an Clear Block J (TO-0079), the using the Brayer (TO-0087), I picked up the ink from the block and rolled it onto the Whip Cream panel staring at the bottom and working my way up to the top.

Star of Wonder

Using the Fresh Forest (SS-0487) stamp set, I inked up some of the images in Fresh Forest (IP-0013) ink and stamped them onto the same panel.  Using the Star from the Sparkle Trim (SS-0495) set, I stamped that in Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.  The sentiment came from the Night Star (SS-0518) stamp set [this is a Host Exclusive] in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.

I mixed a bit of Gesso (JM-0072) and water [you can also use acrylic paint (JM-01063) and water – I will put both in the supply list below) and using the Medium Blending Brush (TO-0098) and a Clear Block F (TO-0075), I flicked the mixture off the edge of the acrylic block to make the snow.  I then added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).  Once that was done I removed the 1″  mask.

This panel was then adhered to a piece of Mirror Silver (CS-0137) before being added to a Denim Days (CS-0082) card base.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Night Star (SS-0518) [Host Exclusive] stamp set in Black Licorice (IP-0041) and also added the star from the front to the inside using Journey Silver (IP-0107) ink.
