Hi, Rosali here! I’m super excited to share my first blog post here for Krumspring Stamps!
For Christmas I got a lot of lovely mail from crafty friends so I thought it would be a good idea to stock up on thank you cards … So this is what I will be showing you today!
I used three Krumspring sets for this project: Happiness Overload, You Rock! and Tou-can Do It!
Here is how I made the card:
- Repeated stamping for the background
I don’t know about you but I just looove Polka dots! So I used the biggest dot from the Happiness Overload set to create my own Polka dot pattern in fresh yellow and green colors! You could draw in some lines with a pencil and ruler first to make sure everthing will be evenly placed but I just eyeballed it! ☺ I got a little blotch at that one green dot but I decided to leave it as is and cover it up later when I assemble the card.
2. The beautiful bird from Tou-can Do It! will be the focus point of my card and I wanted it to have that dark black for contrast but also some beautiful, vibrant red and yellow colours (to match the partly yellow background). To chose the Copic markers I wanted to use I started by googling some pictures of Toucans and ended up using mainly these colours:
3. Putting the card together
Besides the background piece and the coloured bird I chose the big heart from You Rock! as my third main element. First, I did some red ink blending with Distress Inks and dye ink on a piece of watercolour paper. After it was dry I stamped the heart on top and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I assembled my card using some foam tape for dimension and a few sequins and tiny rhinestones as embellishments. This is the finished thank you card:
I hope you like it! Happy Saturday, everybody! ♥
