Shopping Our Stash Challenge #462: Across the Border (use any border punch or die)

Supplies used:


Card #1: Hello

 

To begin I cut a piece of patterned gold foil paper with the largest die from the Gina K Master Layout 2 set along with two additional pieces of scrap cardstock and then gluing the two pieces of scrap cardstock behind the gold foil paper for dimension with Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. I then die cut a piece of teal patterned paper with the second largest stitched die from the same set and then ran the same piece of paper through my die cutting machine again, this time with the Pinkfresh Studio's Classic Edgers Essentials Collection dies. I repeated this process with two pieces of scrap cardstock and then gluing all three of the twice die cut papers to create dimension as I did with the matte layer. After everything had dried, I glued the top panel to the matte layer and set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped the floral image and snail from the Hero Arts Succulent Bouquet stamp set with my Dazzle VersaMark Frost ink and heat embossed them with Ranger's gold embossing powder. I then colored the image with every green and turquoise Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers I had in my stash. I then added sparkle by coloring over each of the succulents and the flower in the succulent bouquet with my Sakura Clear Glitter Gelly Roll Stardust Bold Point Pen. Using the Succulent Bouquet die, I cut out the stamped and colored image as well as two additional pieces of scrap paper, and glued all three layers together. The snail was attached to the succulents with Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape. The succulent and snail were glued onto the card panel. 

To assemble the card, sequins from Catherine Pooler's Blackfoot River mix were added and blue and green watercolor from my Gansai Tambi's Gem Colors watercolor set  was splattered randomly across the whole panel. Then the whole thing was glued onto a top-folding A2-sized card base.

 

Card #2: Valentine's Day

 

To make this background, I repeated the process that I used above with the Gina K Master Layout 2 die set and a different die from the Pinkfresh Studio's Classic Edgers Essentials Collection dies, this time with a piece of previously alcohol inked, foiled pink/red Yupo paper and a black and white piece of Valentine's patterned paper for the top layer and a piece of pink glitter cardstock for the matte. After the panel was assembled, I set it aside to dry.

The hearts were punched out of a variety of materials (a few pieces of patterned paper, black glitter washi tape over scrap paper, gold glitter cardstock, and Simon Says Stamp White Glitter Cardstock) using Ek Tools’ Confetti Hearts punch and another heart punch in my stash.  A few of the hearts were cut out of white cardstock and then heat embossed with Cactus Flower (by Wendy Vecchi) embossing powder twice making them a matte pink/purple color. All of the haerts were glued onto the card except for two of the smaller patterned paper hearts (overlapping the large Cactus Flower embossed heart and the glitter gold cardstock heart) which were adhered with Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape for additional dimension.

The sentiment from Lawn Fawn's My Silly Valentine stamp set was stamped with Catherine Pooler's Party Dress ink on a piece of smooth white cardstock. After cutting the sentiment with a thin sentiment strip die in my stash, I added more Party Dress ink around the border of the sentiment strip. I used more Instant Dimension Foam Tape to attach the sentiment to the card panel.

To assemble the card, sequins from Catherine Pooler's Pierre mix were added to the card and the whole card panel was glued onto a black A2-sized cardbase. Finally, pink watercolor from the Gansai Tambi's Gem Colors watercolor set was randomly splattered across the card panel.


In addition to Shopping Our Stash, I also decided to share these cards in some additional challenges:
