Birdie Trio with Stencils

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing some of our favorite new projects from the July 2016 catalog. The card I'm sharing with you today took a lot of time because it has many layers, but I love it. It features the new Birdie Trio stamp, and lots of fabulous Dreamweaver Stencils.

Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry


Directions:
1. Stamp the Birdie Trio on to Mixed Media Paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. Color, using the Memento Markers listed above. Cut out, leaving a thin white border around the image.

2. Using Lilac Mist cardstock, tape the small Cathedral Windows stencil down and apply Pearlescent Embossing Paste with a palette knife. Let this dry completely, and then use the small "P" Fitted frame to die cut the stenciled background. Apply Sparkle Puff to the bottom to create a small snow bank the that birds will sit on. Heat set.

3. Create the card base out of Winter Lake cardstock, and make the dimensions 5 1/2" x 8." Tape the Brick Stencil to one side of the card base, and using a stencil brush, apply some Tea Leaves Versa Magic sporadically on the card base. Don't go for complete coverage. Move the stencil over to do the rest of the card. Repeat until the card has bricks randomly all over it. Sprinkle Clear Lime Embossing Powder from the Summer Shine Kit too the inked bricks. Heat set. Leave off to the side.

4. Cut a 2" x 4" strip of Coral Rose cardstock. Using the Graduated Dot stencil, ink the strip with Versamark ink. Heat emboss with Clear Pink powder from the Summer Shine Kit.

5. Cut a piece of Ocean Side cardstock that is 1 3/4" wide to fit the Large "P" Fitted Frame and die cut. Glue to the right side of the Lilac Mist Layer.

6. Assemble the rest of the card using Zip Dry glue.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
