So, for today I made three cards. All of them were created using the images and Fancy Dies from the MMH of December…
My first card, showcases the Hope Fancy Die along with the Window and Cloud Fancy Dies. I die cut the window and two clouds from white cardstock to create a frame/base for the focal point. The focal point is the Hope Fancy Die which I die cut from white cardstock as well. I achieved the ombré effect by coloring the word with Chameleon markers.
To add extra dimension to the word, I die cut two more words and I used them as layers. Next, I flicked a bit of Sparkle Silk over the base card and then I adhered the window, clouds and word to the card. I finished it up with some clear drops.
The second card features some of the stamps also included in the kit, take a look:
I began by creating the clouds background. The kit comes with three layers of clouds but I only used two of them. I stamped them with soft ink colors followed by the larger sun rays, sentiment and flying birds image. To achieve perfectly stamped images, I used my Misti Regular Hero Black which is one of the tools that I highly recommend to invest on if you are getting into the stamping hobby.
As the final touches for this card I added some Glaze details along with some Sparkle Cuts and Sparkle Dust.
The third card is a bonus card, because I wasn’t planning to make it, but the Hope Fancy Die is so pretty that I couldn’t resist making another card with it. This time I paired the word with an embossing folder that I have in my stash, and I though it was just perfect for the die:
For this card I used white cardstock to die cut the word, and I only added a foam circle underneath the “O” center to add a bit of dimension. The “H” and “E” edges were merely adhered to the embossed panel with craft glue. The complete panel was adhered to the white base card with foam tape.
I added a few clear drops as the final touches and voila! Simple yet so pretty.
