Mix & Match – Special Delivery and You Go, Gull!
Hello and Happy Monday, Heffy Doodle friends!! I hope your week is off to a great start so far! I’m Amanda Fitterer and I’m super excited to share this Mix and Match card with you today! Keep scrolling to see how to create this card!
Let’s start with the background! First, we’re going to blend a piece of white cardstock trimmed down to 4″x5.25″. Blend the top of the panel (that will be visible) with Catherine Pooler’s Pucker Up ink. Then, blend Catching Rays ink through the Rays the Roof Stencil. The Simple Sunburst Stencil would also work great here. Next, die cut one of the Silver Linings Cloud Border Dies and add a bit of the Pucker Up ink to the top of it. Now, die cut 4 of the Breaking Waves Border Dies. Ink blend the waves with Minted, Seafoam, and Skylight inks. Spritz all the ink blended areas with water. For the waves, take a bit of the Skylight and flick it with a water brush onto the waves. Do the same with the sky and clouds using Pucker Up.
Now that we have our background done and drying, we can start working on stamping and coloring! Stamp the images from the You Go, Gull and Special Delivery stamp sets. Color them with whatever medium you like! I’m using the OLO alcohol markers. Once they’re all colored, they’re ready to be die cut with the coordinating dies.
The final step is to adhere everything down to an A2 sized white card base! I’ve used Glubert glue to attach my clouds and top 2 waves. I’ve used 3D foam tape to attach the bottom 2 waves. Then, I’ve used 3D foam squares for the stamped images and sentiment!
For the finishing touch, I added a few sequins! Did you see the Heffy Doodlers Challenge this month on Facebook? If you like adding sequins to your projects, you might want to enter and maybe win a prize!! You can JOIN HERE!
