Hello everyone! Today i'm sharing a card I made using the "Treat Yourself" stamp set from The Letter Lingo stamp company. This stamp set will be released along with 2 others on 4/29! I'm part of the first design team so i've had an opportunity to play with these stamps so let me tell you about them first....These stamp sets are clear photopolymer and made in the USA, the quality is second to none! The stamp sets are each so versatile which makes creating cards so easy. It's also fun to combine stamp sets for cards- "Tea-rrific" and "Citrus twist" compliment each other really well! The backer is connected too, i'm not a fan when the clear backer can come completely off of a stamp set...it gets lost. Onto todays card!
I created the background by using a cloud stencil I made using my silhouette cameo. I ink blended the clouds using Ranger distress oxide in tattered rose with a blending brush. The paper i used to create the cloud background is bristol smooth, it's really the best paper i've found for ink blending, I also used the same paper for coloring my stamped images. I adhered that to a piece of doodlebug chevron print glitter card stock that is 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I stamped out my images using Gina K amalgam ink in jet black. This ink is great for alcohol markers, colored pencils with gamsol, and watercoloring! I used zig clean color real brush watercolor markers to color in my stamped images in pale pink and tea rose. I added a touch of pale gray to the bubbles in her hair and tub. I also used wink of stella over the bubbles to give them some shimmer! I adhered my images with double sided foam tape. I stamped the 3 sentiments with versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder onto gray card stock. I adhered them to the cloud background with scotch ATG adhesive gun. Lastly I got these fun iridescent bubbles from hobby lobby specifically for this project! I though it they would be the perfect embellishments for this card! I adhered these to the cloud background using Ranger multi medium matte adhesive.
I hope you like this card, please feel free to leave me a comment with any questions you may have, or just to say hi! Check out my supply list below!
