July Release Sneak Peek Day 5 & Release Day


Hello everyone! It's DT member Laura here from A bit of my crafts with a card I made using images from the Summer Vibin' stamp set, part of the Craftin Desert Divas July release. 
Summer is hands down my favorite season, so it's no surprise that I love this stamp set so much: it makes me feel like I'm on the beach! And for my card today I wanted to give the feeling that these adorable critters were chilling in a swimming pool or in the sea - so let's have a look at how I achieved that! :)
To begin with I colored all the images with my Spectrum Noir markers, and I cut them using my Silhouette Portrait. For my card layout I took some white cardstock trimmed to 4" by 5 1/4", and I used the smallest die from the Inside Scalloped Circles Dies set to cut three openings on my card front. I then covered the back of these openings with some light blue glitter paper to give the impression of water. And I really like the effect: it reminds me of the shine that the sea has on a sunny summer day!


At this point I went ahead and adhered my critters to the windows I created, making sure to tuck them in slightly, because I think this gives a more dynamic feel to the card. I also glued the sun and the cocktail glass to the front of my card for an added touch of summer! :)
I choose to use the Summer Vibin' sentiment as I thought it went very well with the feel of the card, and I created a banner by combining two of the dies in the Flag Banner Dies set as shown in the picture below


I then glued down my card front on a yellow A2 card base and, as a final step, I coated the pool floats with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew to give them a more realistic look and add a bit of dimension to my card. And I really love the way it looks!


And that's my card for today! I really hope you like it, and I hope I inspired you to create with this amazing stamp set! 
Have a great day,
