Hi! I feel like it’s been ages since my last blue card, and it’s time to remedy that. James from Lili of the Valley gets to help me with that, and this particular image is called James looking up. There’s another sentiment in the banner, but I really wanted to stamp a sentiment in a colored ink, so I erased the original sentiment before I printed the image.
I colored my image with Copics and turned it into a panel with faux stitch edges using the second largest of the dies in the A2 Stitched Rectangles STAX 1 set from My Favorite Things. I put lots of foam tape on the back and mounted it to a top fold card base I made from Lazy day cardstock from My Favorite Things.
The aforementioned banner was just the right size for one of the sentiments in the Itty Bitty Basics stamp set from My Favorite Things, and I stamped that using Lazy Day ink.
I didn’t want to embellish too much, but at the same time I didn’t want the card not to have any embellishments at all. I put a few diamonds from Kort & Godt around the floral bouquet and added microbeads to the center of each of the flowers.
A little bit of dimension, a little bit of interest, and a really cute bear – just for you.
You’d think I hardly used any colors at all for this, but that wasn’t the case.
I colored up the uni-rex in a very vibrant green combo, paired with a fairy dull pink. I wasn’t sure what to do with him (or her), but I opted for some fussy cutting.
Onto a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ piece of Stamper’s Select White cardstock, I ink blended some Poppin’ Pink ink using the Rectangle Extraordinaire stencil from My Favorite Things. While the stencil was still in place, I added the Wavy Lines stencil on top and used it with some Pearly glitter paint from Aladine, which is super sparkly.
I added the uni-rex to the center of the card using 1 mm foam squares and decided to put the sparkly glitter paint on the lollipop he (or she) is holding.
I needed a sentiment, and the Itty Bitty Basics stamp set from My Favorite Things is quickly becoming my new favorite, I use it a ton. I heat embossed one of the sentiments in the stamp set onto True Black cardstock from Papertrey Ink and die cut it using the Itty Bitty Strips die set. I added a couple of extra layers of cardstock for a little bit of dimension, and glued the sentiment strip onto the uni-rex.
Lots of glitter and dimension, and it’s still a fairly clean card. I love when I can make that happen.
I essentially only colored pink and green for this uni-rex, so it goes without saying that the color palette is limited.
