Today is the last day for the Clearly Besotted Teasers – I hope that you are enjoying what you have seen so far from the release. Today I am using another mini set called Summer Treats, and I have made a trio of cards. The little stamps in this set are great for repeat stamping, and you know, I love a rainbow so I thought I would combine both.
These are smaller than usual cards – they are about 4 bar size (3.5″ x 4 7/8″). To make each one, the process was the same. I created a mask for each of the little summer treats, stamped the first treat in the centre of a white panel, masked it and then moved the card 1/2″ to the left or the right to stamp the rest of the images, moving the mask as I went along. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the stamping as it is Copic friendly.
The images were then coloured in Copics (numbers listed below) and fussy cut.
To assemble the cards, I used some rainbow cardstock, which I had created about two years ago and still had some pieces left!!! The cardstock has been made from slithers of different coloured offcuts of cardstock and adhered onto a white cardstock base. I just cut this to size when I need it.
So, the rainbow panels were trimmed to size and adhered to the side-folding base card using double sided tape. Next I put some foam tape on the back of each row of treats and placed them onto a piece of white cardstock. This was then mounted onto a piece of vellum using DST.
I stamped a couple of different sentiments under the images using Versafine Onyx Black and then adhered the whole lot onto the rainbow cardstock with tape. The sentiments are from Hello Cupcake from the August release and an older set A Little Sentimental.
Lastly, some shimmer was added to each row of treats and that finishes the cards for today. I think they are super fun and bright and sometimes it’s nice to vary your card size and make some smaller cards – I always gravitate to square or A2 size but little cards can be fun too!
In the meantime, do pop over to visit the rest of the DT – Stephanie, Keren and Michelle and see what they have for you to enjoy today. I will be back with a post tomorrow which will contain links to the products which will be live in the shop from 8pm BST (1st August) both at Clearly Besotted and Simon Says Stamp.
