Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I have a cute card that may bring the feel of a warm sunny day … what the heck, they were threatening snow yesterday!! Ha, Ha … left my shovels out, just in case! My card share today features the beautiful Lillypad Lake bundle, and I wanted to create that “lake” feel … I hope it takes you to the warmth and wonder of the lake.
I started with the worn wood look with one of the designer papers from the Wood Textures DSP. I cut out my background in Whisper White with the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies … it will create the focal point, and was sponged with Balmy Blue. The sun was cut from the dies included in the bundle.
Our bird was stamped and then cut again with the coordinating dies. the water is also a die that we cut in Balmy Blue … before we attached it we covered that entire area on the sponged white with our Snail adhesive. The bottom 1/3 of the piece was coated with the Snail, then we laid the die cut (which I’m using as waves/water) onto the piece … then we dipped it into the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and WOW!! We just pushed the glitter down onto the Snail to hold it better … It looks so cool.
I finished off my card with “a little hello” and some pearls which I colored with the Soft Suede stamping blends … it really looked nautical! Most of the time when I make “glitter designer paper” … I use the Adhesive sheets, but this was such a small area and the Snail worked perfectly for this quick technique!! Easy and looks great, you can’t get simpler than that.
Thank you for joining me at the lake today, I hope you enjoyed our little journey into nature.
Have a wonderful day ~
