It is the 3rd week of the month which means…Stamp Review Crew blog hop! Everyone made at least one project featuring the photopolymer stamp set, Watercolor Wings, one of my personal favorite stamp sets this year!
The hop doesn't officially begin until Monday, July 20th but we like to post early to "get the kinks out of the links" so to speak. If a link doesn't work - don't give up!
All that being said, if you arrived here from the talented Tanya Boser's blog, then you are in the right place. Just follow the links at the end of the post!
I wanted to do something different for my card so I made a "Windshield Wiper Card". I don't have a link to directions - I just used a swap card and figured it out myself. It's easy!
When the card is pulled open the surprise element pops up at the top.
This is the front of the card. I wanted a subway tile look so I added black ink to my embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. I was dismayed at first to see stray black ink here and there but then I decided I liked it. Instead of subway tile it looks like distressed bricks.
I added some Gorgeous Grunge splatter and a piece of Everyday Chic paper to give it some visual interest. Then I made my butterfly with Wonderful Wings stamp set. LOVE this set because the color combinations are endless! I used Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise and Black Memento ink. Another thing I love about this set is that it coordinates with the Butterflies Thinlits and the Bold Butterfly Framelits. That gives us even more great combinations!This is what the card looks like from the side. You can see the embellishments that I used: Lots of pearls on the butterfly, especially the wings, and Silver Metallic Thread.
Here is the view from the top. If you are really ambitious you can add another pop up (windshield wiper) on the other side of the card too!
I had a lot of fun making this card, mainly because Watercolor Wings stamp set is awesome.
