Love that we’re Friends card.
Hello everyone. Hope you are having or have had a great weekend. I just got a little haul from Simon Says Stamp (SSS) and having been playing around with the August Card kit stamps and some Nuvo Drops. I love the geometric feel to this stamp set. The border stamps are great and I can see myself using this set many more times. Here’s a quick and easy card I made with one of the borders and two of the sentiments I paired up.
I chose a color palate that was fitting for the Color Throw Down #453 challenge and a sketch that works well for the CAS(E) this Sketch #232 challenge. Hope you like it. On with the card design and ingredients.
I started by stamping the triangle border in the yellow, green and pink and trimmed this down to a rectangle that I backed with a black card stock border. Set this aside while I stamped the sentiment at an angle on the card base. Then masked it off and created the paint splatter background with the same inks by smooshing them onto a clear block one at a time and adding one drop of water mixing it well and then flicked it over the card. The triangle panel was backed with black fun foam and the panel was placed at an angle as well. Any extra overhanging was then cut off.
As I mentioned I got a bunch of the Nuvo Jewel drops and I couldn’t resist adding some of those as well in the same colors. It created kind of a cool effect by making the background appear that some of the paint splatters are still wet.
Lastly I added a little green punched heart that was backed with a black punched heart to create a shadow. I covered the heart and the sentiment with clear Wink of Stella and the finishing touch on the heart was a little PICO for some extra shine and dimension.
