Hello there everyone, today I am popping in to share a card with you using some Prickly Plushies from the March release from Clearly Besotted. They have been very popular since the release went live on 1st March and were out of stock for a while, but today, they are back. But before we get into the card, I do want to say that I hope that you are all doing OK. The Coronavirus is affecting every single person around the globe; these are really challenging and stressful times for everyone and I pray that things get easier soon. It is a good time to craft, as many of us are not allowed outside the house. Nonetheless, nothing feels normal does it.
So, in the spirit of trying to bring some happiness into people’s lives, here are some cuties to brighten your day!
I started by creating my background. To do this, I took a panel of white cardstock and added a circle mask in the centre of it. I then laid down the Sunny Day stencil, taped it down with Frog Tape, and blended Scattered Straw Distress Oxide through it. Next I flipped the stencil and did the same to the bottom section so it looks as if I have a circle of rays with a larger white circle in the middle.
I took three of the succulents from the Prickly Plushies set, stamped them onto Neenah using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured them with Copics. The numbers are listed below if you want to know the combinations I have used. I fussy cut them out and then set them to one side.
The panel was trimmed to mat onto an A2 top folding SSS Fog cardstock base card. This was adhered flat using double sided tape. I then adhered one of the plushies flat down onto the panel and popped the other two up with foam tape.
Finally I stamped a greeting from Anteater Antics that I thought would fit the little scene well. This was stamped onto Fog cardstock, cut with one of the dies from SSS Sentiment Labels and then popped up with foam tape also. I added some iridescent sequins from Lucy’s cards for a bit of bling and also used some Tonic Nuvo Aqua Shimmer on the succulents.
I do hope you are all having a good day and are getting some crafting in. I will be back soon with some more cards for you. Big hugs to you all!
Copics used: (YG00, YG01, YG25), (W5, W3, W1, W0), (BV02, BV01)
