Time to showcase some more goodies from the My Favorite Things August Release!
For Countdown Day 4, we’re showcasing Birdie Brown’s Polynesian Paradise stamp and Die-Namics sets; the Tiki Hut Die-Namics; the Pop-Up Birthday Die-namics; the Wave Background stamp and the Pineapple Background stamp – here’s my first card:
I created a background panel using Daffodil and Coral Crush Dye Ink Refills – I added a few dots of each colour onto a piece of acetate, spritzed with water, and transferred the colour to a piece of white cardstock. I heat set the panel and adhered straight down to a white card base.
I die-cut a circular frame using two of the Double Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics, foam mounted it to the card front and stamped a sentiment from Polynesian Paradise in the centre with black dye ink.
I stamped the flowers images from the same set onto scrap inky panels, fussy cut them out and adhered to the circle frame.
To finish, I added some black gemstones to the centres of the flowers. Here’s my second card:
I began by creating the background panel using the emboss-resist technique. I took a piece of white cardstock and blended Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Inks together and then stamping the Wave Background with Versamark Ink. I sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set.
I then blended Pine Needles and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks on top of the embossed areas, and through to the cardstock – the embossed areas resisted the ink but the colours below were intensified! I set the panel with a light coating of water and Perfect Pearls.
I die-cut a circle aperture from the ink-blended panel and set aside. On a white card base, I stamped a palm tree from Tiki Party (showcasing on Monday), and coloured it in with some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I added clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on the coconuts for some shine 😉
I stamped one of the birds from Polynesian Paradise onto a piece of white cardstock, again used the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens to colour it in and fussy cut it out before foam mounting to a strip of black cardstock – the sentiment was heat-embossed in white and the strip had banner ends cut on either side.
The wave background was foam mounted to the card base, allowing the palm tree to peek through, followed by the sentiment strip and bird. To finish, I added a couple more fussy-cut flowers to help balance the design.
