This is one of the times that I have to tell on myself. I spent the afternoon and early evening thinking my vision was a bit blurry but not in the usual “I need to clean my glasses” way. I figured it might be about time for a check up. My vision changes seem to sneak up like that — not there and then suddenly noticeable. After dinner, I was getting ready to sit down with my daughter and watch a show so I took my glasses off, hesitated for a moment and decided what the heck, I might as well clean them. Well, I pulled out my cleaning cloth and what did a find on my glasses? Smudges? Sure. A fingerprint or two? Sure. Dried Heat and Stick Powder?…What?? Sure. The good news is there’s no vision change. After carefully scraping the dried Heat and Stick off my lenses, my glasses are fine as well. My take away — be more careful when I’m heating it! LOL. Moving on to my creation, I used Marquee Messages for TSOT279.
Marquee Messages for TSOT279
To create my design team card for TSOT279 I used Marquee Messages
This is the first time that I’ve inked up fun stamp. After seeing the sketch, I just knew I wanted to use it for a friend’s upcoming birthday and when I saw the sketch.
I’ve started with a standard 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Basic Black card base.
Next, there’s a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Gold Glimmer Paper.
Then, I added a 3-3/8″ x 3-7/8″ piece of Playful Palette designer paper.
Over that, I have a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock.
The Rest of the Details
First, I stamped the image from Marquee Messages in Memento Black. Then, I inked it again and stamped onto a piece of Emerald Envy.
For the sentiment, I also used Marquee Messages and inked in Memento Black.
Using a Blender Pen, I picked up some Flirty Flamingo ink from the ink pad lid and colored in the horizontal bars in the sign. Then I moved down to the frame around “birthday” and tinted the shadow with Flirty Flamingo.
After cutting the arrow from the Emerald Envy image by hand, I used a paintbrush to add Versamark ink refill to the “bulbs”. Next, I sprinkled with Heat and Stick, heated (this is where I got my glasses), added Gold glitter and heat to set.
For the glittery stars by “birthday”, I repeated the painting, Heat and Stick and Glitter.
To added the Emerald Envy arrow to the main Marquee Messages image, I used Dimensionals. You’ll notice that it is slightly offset to take advantage of the shading lines in the bottom image.
Finally the Flirty Flamingo panel was added with the Dimensionals before trimming the overhanging edges on the two angled layers.
