Pootler's Design Team - Week 2
I was so excited to discover I'd been accepted onto the Pootler's Design Team for January, and even more so when I discovered which of the fab Stampin' Up! stamp sets I'd be playing with! So for each Thursday in January, I'll be posting a project created using this little cutie...
Bella and Friends has been on my wish list since the launch of the current Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue (along with pretty much every other stamp set that hadn't yet made it into my ever growing collection - I'm such a stamp addict), and I'm delighted to share with you the second of my Bella and Friends creations.
I couldn't resist creating a card with an added bit of sparkle for this weeks project. With the weather being cold and grey, I'm sure there is at least one person I can think of that would appreciate this Bella and Friends creation.
I made this card by cutting a sheet of Whisper White Thick Cardstock in half, then folded in half using the Stampin' Trimmer. I then cut a piece of Wisteria Wonder Cardstock to , before mounting it to the front of the card using Snail Adhesive.
Taking a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I then trimmed this to 3 5/8" x5 3/8", before stamping the dog and bird image in Basic Grey ArchivalStampin' Pad. A second image (this time, just using the balloon) was then stamped onto a Wisteria Wonder sheet from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack, then cut out and stuck over the stamped balloon, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I also stamped the sentiment onto another piece of Whisper White Cardstock, before running it through my Big Shot with a Stitched Shape Framelits Die. The image was then coloured in using an Aqua Painter and my Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate, Chocolate Chip, and Crushed Curry Classic Stampin' Pads.
Once dry, I created the glittery background by using a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and once dry, attached this panel to the Wisteria Wonder panel on the card. The sentiment was then attached to the card front using a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.
