Hey everyone! And welcome back to another crafty day! Today, I’m having a little fun in my crafting room. Letting go of inhibitions and releasing the need for perfection, this year I’m allowing myself to enjoy the process more.
Before I jump in, join the conversation with the Roadies over on Facebook.
For this set, I wanted to do something a little different. I started with a slimline design. I was initially going for an all around sunset design, but scrapped that idea partway through and … Honestly…. I’m not even sure what to call this ,but I dig it!
I used retired dies, but you can use any square die– to make “windows” in my panel. After cutting the windows, I trimmed down my panel to the size it is now, and pressed it into my embossing pad. I added gold embossing powder and set it aside to dry.
I took each cutout panel and did something a little different. For one, I stamped the Habit Tracker: Leaf stamp using copic friendly ink. Colored it accordingly. The other two panels, I ink blended a sunset-look to them both, so when they’re together it looks continuous.
Then, I busted out, for the first time, my RBG stamps because I felt like the sentiments just GO with this.
I stamped Ruth Bader Ginsburg in brown, to ground my whole card, added the crown, and fussy cut her out. It was pretty easy to do since it was a simple image. I added some gloss to her glasses, and sparkles to her earrings. Rest in power, RBG.
For the sentiments, I used the Basics: ticket dies (COMING SOON!!, join the conversation so you can be first in the know!) and stamped sentiments from “Resist” (coming soon!)
Everything was adhered flat. I layered some solid card stock and lost track of the margins, then trimmed them down, and ended up losing the cardstock. *deep inhale* But again: letting go of perfection! I added yellow to my card base, and adhered my panel flat.
