Excited to see the add ons now? Me too…so here’s a look!

I had so much fun making my card for you today using the add ons. Let’s get started!

The Sunflare Window Fancy die was cut from 2 pieces of white cardstock. I then ink blended the individual pieces with Fruit Punch, Taffy, Creamsicle, and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks. I sprayed the pieces (except the Lemon Drop) with Iridescent shimmer mist and set aside to dry. I attached the outline of the die to a side fold A2 white card base and inlaid the extra white pieces (the ones that would go under the yellow only) to give some dimension. I then added the yellow pieces so I could line up my sentiments.

I used black ink and sentiments from the “Color Me Words” stamp set to create movement along the shape of the die cuts. To create this, I used my MISTI stamping tool and started in the smallest area so I could be assured the sentiments would fit. With the MISTI tool you can also create a little curve to the sentiments.

After the shimmer sprayed pieces were dry, they were inlaid (single layer) into the die cut. I stamped the “YOU ARE” onto a piece of cardstock with black ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing ink and clear embossing powder. I chose a circle die that was slightly larger than the sentiment, die cut and adhered it to the card. I added a few confetti sequins as a final touch.
