Bubbles Border Note Card with Lost Coast Designs
Good day all! I am exhausted and it's only 1 pm here. Yesterday our friend Mara Domene taught a traditional bookbinding class on how to make a Moleskin notebook. We had a full class and everyone had a great time. Afterwards was dinner at a new restaurant in town called Kabuum Bar. Outdoor seating, live music with an amazing musician, Saray Tainan, and the burgers were great. The owner used to have a hamburger restaurant in town and he remembered me as "the American" that used to love his burgers. At 2 am thunder and lightening woke me up and then it turns out that we turned the clocks ahead last night - so I lost an hour of sleep!! Grrrrr.....
I started today's very colorful card with a white cardstock base, 4" x 8", scored at 4" and top folding, to which I adhered a piece of black cardstock. Then I grabbed another one of my favorite stamps called Bubbles Border by Lost Coast Designs. Because the stamp is so long and I wanted to make sure the different sections did not overlap, I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner together with a Dylusions Journal Block. A stamp postioner is a tool that every stamper should have in their arsenal and I use mine almost daily. Check below for a video on how it works.
I started with a piece of white cardstock, 3.75" square, inked up my stamp and, using the positioner, stamped the part of the image I wanted on the cardstock.
Then I turned the block and stamp around and stamped the next section of the stamp I wanted under the first section.
This was the piece before I started to color.
I then colored everything (except the circles) using Copic Markers. For the circles, I used Stickles by Ranger. You could also use crystals or dimensional paints. Once the Stickles were dry, I adhered a piece of black fun foam to the back and then adhered this piece to the card front. Lastly I adhered some stickers (Momenta) on the bottom that says "dream a little dream everyday".
I really love how the yellow pops with the black cardstock behind it. I hope you enjoyed this post. Remember to leave a comment below for a chance to win all the cards I make in February!! Until next time -
