Hello and welcome back to the final day of our fabulous Collaboration Hop with So Suzy Stamps! I enjoyed this collab so much that I made two cards for today!
I started off by stamping the background Dept. Store stamp in our Noir Dye ink on an A2 sized card panel. I set that aside and stamped the elements for my scene from our Retail Therapy set. After I stamped all the ladies, pup, cab and accessories, I colored them in with zig markers and die cut them using their coordinating dies. Then I watered down some of my zig markers to color in the Dept. Store background. I chose a more muted background because I didn’t want to take away from the hustle and bustle of the scene.
Zig markers used (available individually here): No 51 Lemon Yellow, No 50 Yellow, No 91 Light Gray, No 36 Light Blue, Black Zig Marker, No 20 Red, No 24 Wine Red, No 62 Dark Brown, No 71 Flesh, No 72 Beige, No 64 Oatmeal, No 92 Blue Gray, No 37 Cornflower Blue, No 42 Turquoise Green, No 202 Peach Pink, No 81 Light Violet, No 70 Orange, No 45 Pale Green, No 83 Lilac
Next I gold glitter heat embossed the lamp on a separate card panel and used my Scan N Cut to cut out the lamp. Before I put the scene together, I gold glitter heat embossed the gorgeous leafy Herb 1 stamp on the top portion of my Dept. Store panel. I LOVE the effect it has on the scene! The falling foliage gave it more depth and life to the project.
Next I adhered the Dept. Store panel onto a side folding A2 card base and then assembled my scene by popping up all the elements (except the cab) with some dimensional foam tape. Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder on black cardstock and adhered it onto my card.
My next card is more simple but just as fun! I used the same City Girls: Retail Therapy set and paired it with Suzy’s festive scripty Celebrate sentiment. Our Retail Therapy set might be one of my favorites from the last release. The image with the girl holding all of the boxes and bags is so comical and I know some of you guys can relate!
I started off by stamping the gal with the boxes in our Noir Dye Ink. Then I took the same stamp and stamped only the boxes along the bottom edge of my card panel so that it looked like she was surround by boxes and boxes of fabulous shopping finds. After I stamped the box piles, I stamped the shopping bags and the adorable pup.
Next I stamped the Celebrate stamp next to our gal. This Celebrate stamp is something that I will be keeping on my desk as a go to. For the You Deserve It portion of the sentiment, I simply curved the end of it on my acrylic block so that it would curve alongside the end curve of the Celebrate sentiment. I chose not to color the panel as I enjoyed the monochrome look to the card. To finish the card, I adhered some of our new Silver Holographic sequins.
