I have been creating and buying. There are so many great products out there it's hard not to shop. I fell in love with a ton of the newest releases. I have a drawer full of new stamps that are just dying to get ink on them and be moved in with the other loved stamps.
Magical Dragons from My Favorite Things stole my heart the second I saw a sneak peek on Instagram! I instantly knew I wanted to make this card for one of my kids.
The little dragon from MFT actually faces the opposite way. I don't have the matching dies yet so I improvised and used my Pixscan mat from Silhouette and imported the stamped images. I flipped the little dragon, offset both dragons and then cut the shapes out. I then stamped the baby dragon onto the new MFT reverse image stamp, placed the die cut that I created back into the negative space and stamped him. It works like a charm when using the mini MISTI. I watercolor both dragons with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
For the sentiment, I used a Wplus9 sentiment from the Going Places stamp set. I had to mask off part of it as the stamp actually reads "What if YOU fall" I wanted the baby dragon to say "I" so I hand wrote the I in myself.
I used some Doodlebug Sprinkles for the flowers and the sun. I die cut the whole thing with Mama Elephants Femme Frames.
The inside of the card shows the little dragon taking flight using the MFT Surf & Turf slider dies. Here is a quick little video showing it in motion (sorry for the quality, I shot it on my iPhone really quick)
I don't own a stamp that says "You've Got This" so I created it in Photoshop and then printed it inside the card. I used a white gel pen to add the lines to make it pop more.
That's it for today. I have a crazy weekend up ahead. Band Camp is winding up this week and then the Band Season kicks off. It's my son's Senior year and it is going to go so quickly! I need to soak it all in before he flies out of the nest!
Have a wonderful day!
