Today I am sharing a lovely card I made for my recent Diemonds team swap I recently participated in featuring the Tie Dyed stamp set.
This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set with groovy tie-dye inspired stamps that will really help you feel the funk. Can you dig it?
I love how this one turned out.
- 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (folded in half) Flirty Flamingo cardstock base
- 5 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock- inside card
- 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock
- 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ Vellum cardstock
I really wanted a higher concentration of the hearts towards the top of the card so I placed the cardstock in the folder so it left the lower half of the card un-embossed (is this a word?)
Do you love the Ombre look of the letters? I created this look by inking up the entire letter with Blushing Bride ink and then tapped it in the Flirty Flamingo ink (going up between halfway and three-quarters up on the letter). Next I tapped the lower part of the letter in the Melon Mambo ink and then stamped onto the Whisper White cardstock. A quick run through the Big Shot to cut the letters out and I was ready to put the layers together.
I adhered the letters to the front of the 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Vellum cardstock with snail adhesive. Your silicone mat sure comes in handy when applying adhesive to thinner pieces.
I stamped the tie die heart image using Blushing Bride ,Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo ink. I love how cool this 3-step image turned out.
Next I punched the shape out with the Sweetheart punch and then covered the heart with my favorite, Clear Wink of Stella.
I added the heart to the Vellum layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the layer to a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. I offset the Vellum a bit so it sat a bit higher than the white cardstock beneath it.
Normally I adhere my cardstock layers together before adding the due-cut details, but since you can see your adhesive through the Vellum, I decided to do this after my die-cuts were in place. This allowed me to place the adhesive behind the images so it would not show through.
Adhere a piece of the AWESOME ribbon from the Sale-a-bration FREE products with glue dots, wrapping ends to the back of the cardstock.
When I stamped the heart on the inside layer I didn’t do all 3 steps and changed the outer part of the image to be in the Flirty Flamingo instead of the Melon Mambo ink since I was adding the greeting over the top of the image.
