It is Zsofi here today with a cute and sunny card created with stamps from the latest release.
I started with stamping Holly from the Chirpy Chirp stamp set on alcohol friendly white cardstock with Raven Hybrid ink. I coloured her with alcohol markers and cut the panel down.
I chose 3 patterned papers from the Puddle jumper paper pad with the same pattern just in different colours. The yellow one I cut down to 4,25*5,5 to cover and A2 sized note card. The dark purple I used as a mat for the focal panel and from the blue I cut quarter inch strips.
After assembling the card and popping up the coloured image with 3D foam squares, I started to look for the perfect sentiment. I found it in the Puddle Jumper stamp set: on a small piece of white cardstock I stamped the word sunshine with the rocking technique using Dan-d-lion and Lantern yellow hybrid inks. I repeated it a few times and as a last layer I stamped it again with clear embossing ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. For a more dimensional and shinier look you can repeat the clear embossing a few times (I made it 3 times for this smooth and raised look).
Above the heat embossed sentiment I added another one using Mrs Periwinkle hybrid ink and added a layer of the dark purple patterned paper.
As embellishment I used the 2 little butterflies from the Chirpy Chirp set and added little confetti sequins on the stripes. I used a clear shimmer pen on the wings of the butterflies and covered them all with glossy accents, just as the ribbons and the middle of the flowers. I love to add these details, they make a big difference to an already pretty card.
I hope you got inspired on mixing up your stamp sets and giving them a new look. Until next time, happy crafting!
