This Trio is Better Together

Hello everyone! Welcome to the Beth Duff Designs Summer Release Hop! If you've been on my blog this week, you've seen that I had 2 cards that featured the Better Together stamp set. I am so loving this set. The food is so cute, and I really like the sentiments. Well today, I have a third card using that set.


This card makes me think of summer on the boardwalk. Coney Island definitely comes to mind. Pretty sure I've had this as a meal there before.

I colored the food and drink using my Zig Clean Color Markers. I fussy cut them out, and then used foam adhesive on the back. I gave the drink two layers of foam to pop him up even higher. My background was done pretty easily, thanks to my Tim Holtz stamp platform. You can of course use another type of platform, or even just an acrylic block to do the repeated sentiment, but it is much easier in a stamping tool. I used various colors of Color Box chalk ink. I chose colors that coordinated with the marker colors I used on the food. 

I mounted my background on to a brown card base, but I felt that the card needed a little bit of shine. So I added a stripe of Queen & Co. washi tape. This particular tape is super glitzy and was just what the card needed.

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
