Hi, SWEETIES! I am here today to share a card for the July Paper Sweeties challenge! Our inspiration is so fun, I hope you like it and play along! Take a peek...
SO fun--and perfect for July here in the USA! I decided to go with the colors and stripes/star motifs, but my card isn't necessarily patriotic. Take a peek at my creation...
I used the hot air ballon from the new Let's Go To The Beach stamp set. I heat embossed it in clear, then watercolored with red and blue inks. It was die cut with the new Let's Go To The Beach Sweet Cuts dies.
I created the background by using a technique that I call "Ink 'n' Emboss". I've got a tutorial on it HERE, or watch below. I added some washi tape and some clouds from the Let's Go To The Beach stamp set that were also cut with the Let's Go To The Beach Sweet Cuts dies.
The sentiment is from the new Surf's Up stamp set. I created a "cloud" by tearing some white card, then stamping the sentiment in blue ink.
Some Marshmallow sequins were added as a finishing touch. I like all the different textures on this card, and it was so fun to make! I hope you like it, too! I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
As promised, the tutorial video on the background.~
That's all for me today! I'll be back later this month with some creation using the July release, so stay tuned! For more inspiration for the challenge, make sure to visit the other gals on the DT, as well.
Here's the hop list~
