Colorado Craft Company August Release

Hello everyone. Today I have a video using Colorado Craft Company’s NEW August Release of their Big and Bold collection. These stamp sets feature larger images in a hand drawn style with fun sentiments to boot. These sets fit well with their other collection called Lovely Legs.

I am doing a giveaway for this release. Six winners will be chosen from the comments section of the YouTube video that coordinates with this blog post. Leave me a comment letting me know which of the three cards featured is your favorite out of the group. I will pick randomly six winners in three days time so check back in the description box of that video for the winners to be announced. I will post them on Tuesday August 6th . The six people chosen will each receive one of the six stamp sets from Colorado Craft Company that is being released this August. I hope I have encouraged you to enter and Good luck in the giveaway.

As for the cards, most of them will be shown in the video over on YouTube. All except one. Somehow the down facing camera footage was corrupted and I couldn’t show you how that was made. Good thing it’s super simple and I can just tell you all about it here.

The Big and Bold collection from Colorado Craft Company are just that… Big. I wanted to feature the entire dress on the front of a card but in order to do that, I had to make a card slightly larger than cards I usually make.

This card measures half the size of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper. I made the Simon Says Stamp Fog card base by simply folding a sheet of it in half and scoring it with my Teflon bone Folder.

Then I cut a sheet of Simon Says Stamp Black cardstock down to  . This piece is going to be my front panel.

I quickly aligned the front panel into my original MISTI and stamped the sentiment  “you’re fabulous darling” toward the bottom center of the panel. I stamped it with Nuvo Clear Mark embossing ink and used Ranger White embossing powder to heat emboss it.  I added this panel to the Fog card base using black craft foam and tear tape adhesive.

As for the dress, I stamped it the same exact way as the sentiment was stamped above, only this time I fussy cut it out with my scissors. It doesn’t matter that the cutting edge isn’t perfect. It will end up disappearing into the background. Once I was finished cutting it out I threw it into my splat box and sprayed it with my three favorite shimmer sprays. Imagine crafts Frost and Sparkle shimmer spray as well as Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer spray. After all three were dry, I added some Tonic Studios Foam Squares to the back and mounted it to the card panel centered above the sentiment.

That was it, but my camera didn’t record all of it. So, sadly, it’s not in the video. But there are two more cards being made in the video that I didn’t mess up… So, here is a link to the video._

Also, I’ve listed all of the materials I’ve used to create these projects here on my blog in the following Airtable spreadsheet. Affiliate links are used when available.
