Hello, again my Friends, Ilda here!
I am back today with another card featuring products from the New Release. If you missed the news, make sure you click on the link to join the Studio Katia June Release Blog Hop, lots of inspiration and prizes to be won!
I was so excited to see some slimline dies and a 6X6 paper pack in the New Release which has lots of rainbow pattern goodness (which happens to be my favorite). Plus you know I love all things crafty, so I absolutely love the CRAFTASTIC set that I used in today’s card.
To begin this card I actually began by die cutting the cup of crafty tools out first using the CRAFTASTIC DIES. The die is solid which makes it harder to line up with a stamped image. It was designed this way because it cuts inside the stamped area. But by die cutting it first, I now knew where to stamp the image from the CRAFTASTIC set and line it all up.
TIP: If you use the negative piece of the die-cut and line it up in your stamp positioner you can then center the stamp in the die-cut area. Test out the alignment by using a post-it under the die-cut opening, and then once it is lined up, add your die-cut piece back in place and stamp. This is a great way to stamp multiple images for mass production.
I then just colored the images in using Copic markers and stamped the “you inspire me” sentiment on the front of the mug.
I then die cut the scalloped layer using a rainbow pattern cardstock from the new BLACK, WHITE, AND RAINBOW PAPER pack. I taped used 2 pieces of the paper together to create the length for the Slimline Scallop Die that comes again from the DOTTED SLIMLINE – SET 2.
To finish off the rainbow-inspired Slimline Crafty Hugs Friendship Card, I added a variety of pearls in various colors of the rainbow. See links below for all the new pearls.
I hope you love this card as much as I do, and are inspired to create something similar to send to a crafty friend that inspires you!
Thank you for stopping by and until next time… Happy Crafting!
