Hey lovelies! ❤
Today I want to share with you the second card I’ve made with this gorgeous stamp set from Ink Road Stamps! Anybody who watches Gilmore Girls will know of the Life and Death Brigade and the latin term ‘In Omnia Paratus’ which means ‘ready for anything’! Some of my favourite moments in the show happened with Rory and the Life and Death Brigade, although I’m still team Jess! With that being said, I couldn’t NOT make this card!
~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~
I made my tall card base and cut a panel slightly smaller from white card stock, I wanted it to represent the jump made by Rory and Logan with the rest of the group so I felt it was most appropriate! I cut a cloud shape stencil from white card stock again, and began inking my panel from the top with my Ranger/Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I kept blending the colour all the way down to the bottom of my panel, once finished I distressed it with my Distress Spray bottle.
For the little umbrellas I stamped them with Tsukineko Memento tuxedo black ink on white card stock, then coloured them in rainbow colours using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I took a small circle die and cut them out using my Big Shot machine.
For my sentiments I treated some black card stock with my EK Success powder tool, so the embossing powder wouldn’t stick to anywhere else apart from where I stamped. I stamped both sentiments in Tsukineko Versamark ink, covered them in Altenew pure white embossing powder and set them with my heat tool before cutting them in to thin strips using my paper trimmer. I used my scissors to create a little fish tail banner for the “you jump, I jump” sentiment.
For assembly I began by cutting down some black matte paper to create a border around my panel on the card, adhering it to my card base with my regular tape runner. I then wrapped some blue and white twine around the left side of my panel, adhering it to the back with some washi tape. I backed the umbrella circles and sentiments with double sided foam tape, adhered the umbrellas over the twine and put the sentiments in place where I had planned. I finished by backing the entire panel in foam tape and adhering to my card base.
