Hello crafty friends! Davina here with my second card using the January Color Snapshot. This time, instead of candy land and sugar plums fairies, I went the complete opposite direction with dinosaurs and mammoths. And the results are still the cutest!
I started this project by going through my scrap bin and pulling out colored cardstock that matched my color board. I knew I wanted blue water layers and purple star filled sky, and was happy to find enough scrap cardstock to make my card.
I began by cutting some layers from my colored cardstock using the outer stitched frame from the Clover Frame Die Set. I cut a white glitter panel, a bristle smooth layer, and a soft blue panel. I used the lovely Stargazer cover plate to cut the star filled background to layer over the glitter piece. Next I used the Breaking waves dies, to cut my blue card into two different height water layers. Then I cut the bristol smooth panel into a hilly land layer using the Slopey Joe dies. I trimmed a second little hillside from some glitter card as well.
Once all of my layers were cut, I gently inked the edges of them to create nice dimension and texture. I splattered each layer with colored ink, white ink, and glittery perfect pearls. I used my cute little Glubert glue tube to adhere the purple sky over the glitter panel. Then lining everything up at the bottom, I layered my glitter hill, the pink hill, and my two water layers are popped up on foamI stamped images from two sets into more Bristol smooth cardstock. I used the cute mammoth from Prehistoric Pals and some cuter Dinos from Dino Time using a No Line Ink from The Stamp Market. I colored the images using Zig Real Brush Markers. I’m not super experienced using these products, but I felt I needed to start practicing more. I die cut the images using coordinating dies, and layered into my scene. I turned the brontosaurus into a water Dino by tucking him into the waves.
I heat embossed my sentiment onto some vellum, to make it easier to read, and added some solid stamped hearts from the set. I really adore how these unexpected colors, from the Color Snapshot, look with this typically boy themed set. Now it’s a lovely valentine appropriate for anyone! Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you try using this color scheme.
