Craft Roulette #71

 Craft Roulette #71

Craft Roulette is a weekly live YouTube crafting event! Each week, hostess Mary Gunn and a guest crafter make a card using 4 randomly-selected parameters and encourage us to play along. Episode 71's parameters were: 

Project: Slimline or mini slimline card

Colors: Yellows plus 2

Element: Tasty treat

Random: Polka dot(s)

I decided to pull out my Sweet Friends stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn and use some of my patterned paper to make this card. I used a couple of additional die sets: Gina K's  Master Layout 2 (the stitched flags I used for the sentiments) and Pink and Main's Beautiful slimline die for this card.  

To make the card, I stamped and die cut the doughnut (my tasty treat) from the Sweet Friends stamp and die set multiple times in Twilight VersaFine Clair and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic heat embossing powder on white card stock. I then colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers  (the donuts were colored in a brown and beige colors, which are considered neutrals, and a pink/red, blue and yellow to meet the color requirements of yellows +2 colors). I also stamped and colored a lot of hearts from the same stamp set in the same manner. I added  Liquid Stardust Shimmer from Lawn Fawn to the hearts and the frosting of the donuts and set them aside to dry. 

Meanwhile, I stamped multiple sentiments from the Sweet Friends set onto white cardstock with more of the Twilight VersaFine ink. I then die cut them out (as well as many pieces of scrap cardstock so I could have three layers of paper for each sentiment) using the smaller stitched flag die from the Gina K Master Layout 2 set and then glued them together. I then die cut ome additional pieces of the corresponding multicolored patterned paper so that they matched the colors of the card 5 times with the larger stitched flag die from the same die set. I then also die cut more scrap cardstock so that there would again be 3 layers for each of the flags. Again, I glued the layers all together and set them aside to dry. 


Then I worked on the background. I had found two pieces of paper in my stash that had yellow and polka dots on them. At first, I brought both out to decide later which one to use, but decided in the end to use both to add some more interest and to use up more of my patterned paper stash. The front panel came from a piece of patterned paper with lots of strips of different patterns, so I was careful to cut out the part that I best felt fit the needs of the card. While die cutting these two papers with both of the slimline dies from Pink and Main's Beautiful Slimline die set, I also die cut an additional two pieces of cardstock for each so that I could add additional layers to these as well. All of the layers of the background were glued together with liquid glue and set aside to dry.

To assemble the card, I decided to alternate the donuts from the left to right, and then to ink blend the sentiment flags to match the rest of the card. So I pulled out three Distress colors that were close to hand: Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide, Salvaged Patina Distress Ink and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide and added ink directly to the edges of each flag and ink blended in the middle of the flag. I then glued them to the larger stitched flags that I had made earlier and added a doughnut with foam tape. The flags with the attached donuts were glued to the card panel. Then I added the hearts with liquid glue and some yellow gems from Honey Bee Stamps. Finally, I added the whole panel to a white slimline card base with liquid glue.
