It's officially release time and all the new stamps and Die-namics can be found here in the My Favorite Things Boutique. I have three samples for you today, plus a little video I've been hiding away.
First up, I have Pure Innocence Sprinkler Girl. I remember jumping through the sprinkler when I was a little girl, so naturally, I love this image. We were on a family walk the other day and my daughter was caught in the stream of one of those moving sprinklers. She didn't quite enjoy it like I did, but I imagine she will by the end of the summer.
I stamped the image on Copic Xpress cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics. Her bathing suit is paper pieced and air brushed for shading. The video at the end of this post is a little tutorial on how I go about airbrushing paper pieces for dimension. I cut out the image with the Circle STAX Die-namics. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of patterned paper cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.
I've mentioned before that I have the heart from the Homespun Birdhouse Die-namics set out on my desk for easy use. I've used it here as part of a two-pieced embellishment:
You can see some detail of the airbrushed swimsuit in these detail shots, too. I added a little stickles for the sprinkler, too:
Here's the Die-namics I used on this card:
Next, I have a little Father's Day card to share. I wanted something masculine, but something that had a lot of detail. When I saw the Hexagons Die-namics, I knew it'd make a great chemistry background for a Father's Day card. For those of you familiar with benzene rings or cyclic carbons or phenol groups, you'll understand! :)
I layered the smaller patterned paper hexagons with the larger ivory hexagons. I think it's best to build the hexagon background then cut with the Circle STAX Die-namics. You get the circle embossing that way and you don't have to fuss with cutting the edges. Here's a detail shot:
Tag toppers are essential in my book. I usually go for a bow of some sort, but I had to stick with the masculine look. I used a simple piece of twill with a blue button:
Here's the Die-namics I used for this card:
Lastly, I have this Mouse in the House - Blessed Mouse to share. It had been a while since I used my Twinkling H2Os and watercolors and I wanted to see this sweet image in watercolored hues.
I haven't distressed edges in some time, but I may be addicted. Just a warning for cards to come. :) After I watercolored the image, I cut it and a coordinating mat with the Oval STAX Die-namics.
I put a little baby braddie in the center of her barrette and added a little flower button (on top of another button) off to the side. Here's some detail:
I used the Scallop Ribbon Die-namics on the back panel and wrapped a twill bow around it. I love the little scallop detail peeking through.
That's all I've got for now! Remember, you can find all the new products here:
Like I mentioned before, I have an Airbrushing Paper Pieces video tutorial here.
Note: I use the Harbor Freight 1/8 HP, Oilless Airbrush Compressor (item #93657) with the Copic ABS-1N system. I didn't need any additional connectors or adaptors with the two products. Also, the second sample card was blogged here. :)
