Stand Tall

I had so much fun playing with the Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval collection that launched last week. Even after I’d met my Creative Team commitment for creating a certain number of cards, I kept on playing and made several more. I thought I would share another one of them with you today.

Mel's Card Corner | Stand Tall (Tropically Yours SOA)

For this card, I stamped the flamingo and colored it using Copic markers (RV00, RV02, RV04). I created a mask to cover it using the coordinating die set then stamped the Canvas Grunge Background over it using two colors of ink (Melon Ice and It’s a Boy).

I stamped on of the sentiments from the stamp set using VersaMark ink then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I cut it out using a circle die lining the sentiment up to the right edge of the circle. I adhered it to the focal panel then trimmed away the excess cardstock.

I created a mat layer for my focal panel using the direct-to-paper inking technique and Be Mine ink. Once the ink was dry, I adhered the focal panel to it then mounted the matted layer to a top-folding card base using foam tape. For a final bit of embellishment, I added some Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen over the flamingo’s body and that completed my card.

If you like this collection, there are still a few boxes available as of the time I’m writing this post. I’m not sure how much longer they’ll be available though, so if you want one, I would suggest ordering soon rather than later!

Until next time …
