Retirement sale + Distress Oxide Complimentary Summer Colors with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

I hope you guys are having a great week.
I'm popping in today with a few cards and some exciting news!


There are SO many awesome products in the sale section
Seriously they're going to go fast. You can shop them all here. 

Among the fabulous products are the ones I used today. 


Heading into summer I really wanted to create a few brightly colored cards to go with the summer vibe. With the weather we've been having it's super hard to get the summer feeling. 


I started by picking out a few complimentary colors of distress oxides. I knew I wanted to do a gradient so the next step was to look for a third color that would allow me to blend my too complimentary colors together. This is a full proof way to pick a color combo because complimentary colors always look amazing together. 


After I did a bit of ink blending I wanted to add a bit more fun and interest to the background so I splattered on some clean water first to break up the ink blending. To make it a bit more splashy I did the same thing with the distress oxide colors and perfect pearls. The last step was to stamp the background with the background stamp included in the Hello Summer set. 


With the backgrounds done I set them aside to get coloring. I stamped out my images along with an accessory and colored them with my copic markers. I chose colors that were again complimentary to reinforce the theme of each card. After coloring them up I die cut them out with the corrdinating dies. 


The sentiment was a ton of fun and added some extra sparkle to the cards. I'm always all about the extra sparkle. You can see how shiny they are close up here. 


You can see all three card from start to finish in the video below. 


I really love the way all three of them came out. They feel so fun and summery. 
Now if I could just get the weather to break! 


Like I said earlier all of these stamps and dies are in sale section if you love them as much as I do. 
Thank you so much for stopping by!
