Today I'm here to share a card using the July reveal set: Milton Catching Snowflakes. I chose to repurpose the stamp:
I matched my dancing giraffe with a saying from the Spring Time Spunky set, added a fuzzy giraffe background and some purple tulle for a totally different look. I began with the background. Taking a piece of yellow cardstock, I applied a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of Super Adhesive Sheet. After removing the protective backing I applied Mimosa Sparkle N Soft.
Then I applied Memento Rich Cocoa ink to the raised patches on the inside of the Darice Giraffe embossing folder and ran the top half of the fuzzy cardstock through the embossing machine, then reinked the patches and ran the bottom half through.
Here is the finished background:
Milton was stamped on white cardstock in Versamark and heat embossed with Teddy Brown. Copics were used to color. Sparkling Coffee Sparkle N Soft was applied to the patches with Brushable glue.
Dimensional Glue was then applied to the hooves. This was then set aside to dry.
I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on white glossy cardstock and heat embossed with Sienna. The Tuscany EP's are my go to detail embossing powders, which I use a lot on sentiments. The saying was cut up as shown to be attached to the card with foam squares. When the glues were dry, I added the velvet glitters, Hyacinth, Orchid Rose and Ballerina, to the scarf, using the glue pen - Milton becomes Mildred!!
Spellbinders Mega Ovals Large was used to cut out the giraffe and before removing the die I sponged some Memento Cantaloupe ink around the image.
The background was layered to a piece of mustard cardstock, edged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, before being layered to a white card base. I then attached a piece of purple tulle to the back of the image before attaching both the cut up sentiment and image with foam squares as shown.
That finishes my project for today. Hope I've inspired you to try out some of the Sparkle N Softs.
