Hi! Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures. I’m Theresa and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Arizona, USA. I’m so excited to be taking part in Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop today. This is a really fun way to share my creations, and have the opportunity to see projects from many other demonstrators from around the world! I especially love to hear your comments!
I had a lot of fun with this card. The images are from A Good Man and Summer Days stamp sets. I used to love to go kite flying when I was growing up. My Dad would make the kites and inevitably the kite string would break and the kite would never be seen again! We would be so sad, but he would just make another and we would try flying it again. This scene brings back those fond memories.
Here is a close up of the images. It really looks like the man with the child on his shoulders is watching the boy flying the kite!
I used the Layering Ovals Dies to cut out an oval except for around the man’s arm. This is a trick you can do by placing the cutting plate only on part of the card then running it through the Big Shot. It will only cut out what is under the plate. I ran it through a second time to get the other side of the arm. The arm was then fussy cut with paper snips.
I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol markers to color the scene. The cardstock is Granny Apple Green so I used the Granny Apple Green alcohol marker for the tree and the grass. The jeans are Misty Moonlight. The child’s shirt is Balmy Blue and the gray I used is Smokey Slate. To add some color I used Poppy Parade for the kite, ball cap and girl’s book. The blond hair is a light So Saffron. The girl’s shirt is Highland Heather and the tree trunk is Soft Suede. In every case I used the light shade of the color, then added shadow with the dark shade.
I hoped you enjoyed my card. You can purchase all the supplies needed to make your own card by visiting my online store HERE, or clicking on any of the product photos below.
