Hello everyone !
After a small break, it’s time for our monthly hop blog called the Squirrels Stash bash.
Our main concept is simple : we have to make a project with supplies we don’t use enough. Each month we have a theme and a technique, sketch or type of supply to use to make our project.
This month the theme was Summer / Vacation and the supply was dies.
So welcome to the new hoppers and for my regular viewers, thank you for stopping by today!
For my project I decided to feature three products I really like but never had the chance to use yet because I was saving them for the perfect occasion. So I decided to make a platform pop-up card with my Lawn Fawn die sets and two MFT stamp sets.
Lawn Fawn have a great tutorial for its platform dies. You can find it here.
For the bottom part of my platform I decided to tweak things a little bit : I wanted two colors : the outside in blue to represent the water and the inside in champagne for my sand. I die cut the two parts of the platform in blue and champagne. I cut the bottom of the blue parts and glued them on the champagne ones. I also added dots on my champagne platform.
I cut the three T pieces into the same champagne cardstock.
I put all the part together.
I cut the square and rectangle stitched parts into white cardstock and I inked them with my Simon Says Stamp inks and water. I glued them on my platform. I also cut the three little ground parts into white cardstock and colored them with my markers.
I used my Platform pop-up add-on to cut the top part of my platform into yellow cardstock. I cut the stitched parts into white cardstock and I used my Lawn Fawn Slimline cloudy stencils with my Distress Oxide Mustard Seeds and Distress Saltwater Taffy inks on them.
I glued them on my platform.
Et voilà !
May the craft be with you !
