Follow Your Dreams

by Emily Midgett August 20, 2019 10 Comments

Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today sharing some storybook inspiration (with a liberal dash of Disney influence ;) ) using some of the newest products from this month's release! I was on vacation during the My Monthly Hero launch for this month, so I was excited to dive into some of the add-ons for today's post. Let's get started with all of the details!

I began by trimming down a few small rectangular panels of white card stock. I wanted to create a kind of comic book feel with the Cinderella story, so I stamped a few little vignette scenes using stamps from the As You Wish stamp set and Intense Black ink. I colored all of the images using my Copic markers and blended a bit of Indigo ink around the edges very softly using blender brushes. 

Once I had finished my little scenes, I die cut the Rose Bush Cover Plate die from some Dove White card stock. I then blended Rose Madder and Pine inks on the roses and foliage, respectively, using blending brushes. 

I heat embossed the Cobblestone background onto a panel of Pebble cardstock using White Embossing Powder to create a nice, subtly pattered and textured backdrop for my vignettes. I carefully trimmed small sections of the blended roses and foliage die cuts, then added them to the corners to create some trailing vines of roses behind my vignettes. I adhered the vignettes to the card front using foam adhesive, then added a "follow your dreams," white embossed on a strip of Periwinkle card stock. 

Well, that's all for my project today! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!

This is a gorgeous card! I love the colouring of the dresses and the way the pictures and the background work together. Thank you for showing how to use the rose blush cover plate in another way.

I love how the cobblestones seem to stay in the background until you’ve seen the rest of the card and then pop out. It’s such a cool background stamp.

SO GLAD I BOUGHT THIS SET! What got me was Cinderella in her handkerchief head cover. It is just adorable. I can’t wait to make a really cute card with this adorable set. Of course I had to get the club kit, also….:)
