Yay! It's the weekend and today I'm sharing a card and tag for this week's Ink to Paper Saturday Showcase using the Bon Voyage stamp set and the new Swirling Clouds die collection! I love creating unconventional baby cards with the interests or likes of the new parents; in this case, airplanes!
To begin this card, I blended some ink on a panel of Fresh Snow Linen cardstock measuring 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I also blended the same ink around the edges of a tag that was die cut using the new Tagged and Labeled die collection. I smooshed my ink pad onto an acrylic block and added some water. I picked up the ink with a fine point paint brush and tapped it onto the panel.
I die cut quite a few of the Swirling Clouds and stacked them together for chipboard weight pieces. I added them to the tag and the card front using foam squares or directly to the card with a tape runner. I stamped the airplanes and helicopter outlines using black ink and then added the coordinating solid image using Orange Zest, Enchanted Evening, and Simply Chartreuse ink. I also stamped the trailing banner images and sentiments in black ink. The "sending you" sentiment is from Bon Voyage, but the "Congrats" portion is from the Simply Sentiments I stamp set.
I used the coordinating Bon Voyage die collection to die cut the images. Once that was done, I arranged them on the card and tags using foam squares for dimension.
The thing I like about this set is that is has the coordinating solid image to stamp over the line art, BUT you could also use Copic markers to color them if you like.
I love banners and buntings, so I decided it would be fun to add the banner from the Garden Party stamp set to the corner. I die cut it using the Garden Party die collection and then stamped each of the triangles using both the solid image and the pattern images on the green and orange pieces.
A few sparkling clear sequins finish of this tag and card combo! I had a lot of fun working on this and I hope the new parents enjoy it as well! Thanks for fluttering by!
