Just Cards Video Hop Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am participating in the Just Cards Video Hop. We were supposed to create a masculine card, but I failed to see that part or it just didn't register to me, so my card IS NOT masculine. Its actually quite feminine, even for me. To watch the video click the link below and it will take you to my YouTube channel, so that you can watch the video I created. I will also post photos and links to the products used here for your reference. I hope you enjoy the hop.

I used the Ride With Me stamp set from Neat & Tangled's latest release to create my card today. I stamped the images with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink onto Neenah 110 lb cardstock and colored them with Faber Castell Goldfaber colored pencils. They are a wax based colored pencil similar to Prismacolor pencils but I find them to be a bit harder and easier for me to use.

I cut the frame from Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Frames dies out of Neenah 110 and I also cut my background piece to fit snugly behind the frame. As for the background, I created a mask using the MFT drifts and hills stencil out of Avery repositionable label sheet. I masked of the sky and ground to do some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Abandoned Coral, Wild Honey, and Twisted Citron. 

I placed two eyelets using my Provo Craft Silent Setter. Once was placed behind the back of the bike and the other up in the sky behind where the balloons were placed. This allows me the ability to attach my white twine to my card. I wanted it to appear as though they were riding with a trail of balloons and pom poms. I used washi tape to adhere my white twine in place, and Glue Dots were used to adhere the pom poms to the twine. The sentiment also from the Ride With Me stamp set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

The frame was adhered with thin strips of foam adhesive and popped up onto the ink blended panel. I then began to adhere my images with Scotch 3m foam tape. I wish that I had purchased the coordinating dies to go with this stamp set because the dies cut out the white space that you see on the bike. I would much rather see more background than all of the white space. Hind sight is 20/20. I really like how the card turned out, and I hope you do too.

Here is the list for rest of the people on the video hop, enjoy!
