Peek-A-Boo Summer Pals Week - Day 1

June 17, 2019

Hi!  It's Nicky and Caryn (2 for the price of 1!) with you today using the new Peek-A-Boo Summer Pals stamp set with coordinating dies together with the new Dotted Frame Die - ALL from the most recent release.

To make this card I first ink blended a panel of white cardstock with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade.  To do this I used Clarity Stencil Brushes for a very soft and delicate finish.  I then spritzed this panel with Avery Elle's Clear Shimmer Spray and left it to dry for a few minutes before die cutting the A2 panel using the Dotted Frame die.

The outer and inner cuts were directly adhered to my card base and the actual dotted frame portion was backed with foam tape and then stuck down.

The next step was to stamp my images on Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and using Ranger Archival Ink in Potting Soil.  The images were watercolour painted with the following Kuretake Zig colours - Haze Blue, Pale Pink, Pale Yellow, Light Pink and Gray.  The images were die cut, backed with dimensional foam tape and applied to the background.

I used two of the sentiments from the stamp set and stamped them each two or three times in my Misti using a toning pale blue ink.  They were die cut and applied also popped up on foam tape.

Finishing touches were to attach some sparkling clear sequins and add Nuvo Drops in Duck Egg Blue.

Wish you could see the gorgeous shimmer on this card from that spray - treat yourself, you'll love it!

See you next time!

Caryn :

Like Nicky, I also paired my Summer pals with the Dotted Frame Die and the wavey bits from the Sea Scene Die.  The sentiment came from the previously released Simple Sentiments stamp set and co-ordinating dies.

I'm addicted to the new Clear Shimmer Spray too so before I added my stamped shark and floaty I gave the card a wee spritz - I think it adds to the ocean theme really well!
