Hi friends! We're back with another Stay Crafty With Hero challenge. This time, the theme is Critters. Make any sort of card or project you like, as long as it includes a critter! And any sort of critter will do, too. Have fun creating, and best of all, mail your card to someone special when you're done! We'll include all of the challenge details further down this post, but first, here's a fun critter card from Ilina!
Hello everyone! Ilina here! For my card I decided to pair up few products from the new 2020 Winter catalog. I used the Fawn and Friends stamp set and coordinating Frame Cuts, along with the Wagon and Accessories Fancy Die and sentiment from the Stocking Bouquet stamp set. I also used Cloudy Sky Scene Fancy Dies to create the skyline.
To make the card start with two pieces of Dove White cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Die cut one of them using the Cloudy Sky Scene Fancy Dies . Once die cut, use Blue Hawaii and Splash Reactive inks to create the sky/clouds. Splatter some watered down Unicorn White pigment ink (I usually smoosh some onto an acrylic blog and add few drop of water, then flick onto the cardstock), water and White Iridescent Shimmer Spray to create the look of snowfall. Set aside to dry completely.
Next stamp the critters using Intens-ified Black ink, color and die cut them. Die cut the wagon from Dove White cardstock and color the elements using alcohol markers. Stamp the sentiment onto Nautical cardstock and emboss using White embossing powder. Trim to size and set aside.
Mask off the top of the second Dove White piece of cardstock and lightly ink blend Dusty Blue Shadow ink on the bottom part. Remove the masking paper and spray the entire panel using White Iridescent Shimmer Spray. Let it dry.
Assemble all the elements onto the panel and adhere to a Nautical note card (4 1/4" x 11" piece of Nautical card stock scored at 5 1/2").
Thank you so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you create!
