Hello crafters, welcome to the weekend! I’ve been creating quite a few clean and simple cards in the past weeks, so I thought it was about time to do some layers again. For today’s project for the Make The Day Special Stamp Store I’m using only products by Mama Elephant and I’ve been inspired by the wonderful Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh, who created a similar design recently.
I always seem to forget how much I enjoy using vellum. I think I first saw Nichol Magouirk use vellum extensively to create scenes on her cards. That was absolutely inspiring, even though I’m only using it for the clouds today. And the idea with the critters in the umbrella – I wish I could say that has just come to me, but as I mentioned in the introduction, I’ve seen Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh do that recently.
I really like to add seed beads to the car to the way I did. The ones I’m using here are pretty much silvery clear, which means they kind of take on the color of what ever is underneath them. And they sparkle and shine beautifully when looked at in sunlight.
On another note, I’m really happy that I have the matching dies for the stamp set. I know I could just cut it out by hand, but having the matching dies is just so much more convenient.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the video. If you liked it, let me know by leaving a comment or given me a thumbs up over at YouTube. Just in case you didn’t know — if you like a video, YouTube will know that you would like to see more of the same artist. And I would really love to share more videos with you in the future 🙂
Since I did quite some Copic coloring on this card, I’m also sending it off to the MarkerPop #68 Anything Goes challenge .
Have a great weekend and see you again soon.
