It is day #2 of Simon Says Stamp Blossoms and Butterflies release blog hop. Hope you had a wonderful hop yesterday with plenty of inspirations from designers. Today is another day with more designers sharing their inspirations. Hope you enjoy day #2 as well.
Hello and welcome! You should have come from the talented Anna-Karin Evaldsson’s blog. If so you are on the right track. If not don’t worry you are the last stop on the hop. I will list all the designers in today’s hop towards the end of the post.
I am so excited to share couple of cards with you today. I also have a video tutorial for one of the cards. My favourite stamp set from this release is the Wake Up & Make Up stamp set and comes with coordinating dies as well. I have a teenage daughter. She is into makeup which got me interested in it. After watching a few hundred makeup videos on Youtube, I now have a collection which I share with my daughter and I can do basic makeup like contour, baking, bronzing, eyeshadows etc. I did my daughter’s makeup for her year 12 school ball and it turned out well. Now I have a few friend’s daughters lined up for their school ball and dinner dance make up with me. 🙂 You can now imagine, how happy I was when I saw this stamp set and dies. I literally did a happy dance, took a photo and text it to my daughter who was at school. Lol! Stories aside, here is the first card.
Here is the video tutorial of the card. You can also watch this video on my Youtube channel.
The shimmer on the liptsticks are just so beautiful. Oh I wish I can add shimmer to everything Lol! Here are some closeups of the card for you.
Remember that panel from the video where I stamped the sentiment slightly towards the right and not in the top centre? I used that panel to make this second card. I stamped all the makeup images and coloured them using copic markers in cool gray, red and yellow colours. Then using the coordinating dies, I die cut them all out. I adhered them all around the sentiment covering the entire panel. I added shimmer (of course) to the images, glossy accents to the lipsticks and blush. I also outlined the die cuts using C1 grey maker to add shadow. The panel is adhered to Fog card base using foam adhesives.
