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].

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.

Dutch Door/Barn Door Card | Best Wishes

I have heard this type of card called a Dutch Door Card or Barn Door Card.  I thought I would share this with you so that you can see more of the prints in action from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

I layered some of the patterns from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051)  onto pieces of Lemon Grass (CS-0019) before adhering them to a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base.  Using the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544), I stamped the flower image on Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink and then the stems in Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink.  I used the Journey Ovals (DI-0042) to cut out the stamped piece.  Using Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink, I stamped the Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock before cutting it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes Dutch Door3

Using Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I brushed the Sparkle Silk onto the floral image.

Using the Just Write Gel Pens (JD-0060), I traced over the letters in Best Wishes to add a little more interest.

Best Wishes Dutch Door5

I adhered the pieces onto the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081.  I still felt that it needed something so I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).  I really think they helped to finish off the card.

And because I am curious, what do you call this type of card, Dutch Door or Barn Door.  Drop me a comment and let me know.
