Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s October 2018 Highlights. The theme this month is “sorry.” In Kylie’s words, “There are times that we have done or said something wrong – need to apologise, or we are sad for someone and want to let them know. A card has so much power to heal the hurt that may be caused.”
I’ve chosen the adorable rhino from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper for my “Sorry” card. I was able to crop him with a die (Animal Friends die set) right from the Designer Series Paper. He was layered, so he’d be sturdy for placing on dimensionals.
I stamped “Thank You Big Time,” from the Animal Outing stamp set, in Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. Not wanting to say “thank you,” I fussy cut the “Big Time.”
The Pick a Pennant stamp set provided the letters for the word’s, “I’m Sorry.” I first cut the pennant (Playful Pennants die set) from Thick Whisper White cardstock. Then, I carefully stamped each letter in Black ink across the pennant. I placed a Mini-Dimensional behind each flag, so it would be ready to pop up.
The oval was made by using a piece of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper as a stencil. Placing my stencil on Whisper White cardstock, I used a Sponge Dauber with Pool Party ink, and daubed all around the edge to create the pattern.
To create the clouds I used a technique from a recent card; sponge daubing with a “cloud” from the Pretty Label Punch. TIP: Rather than just stamping with the dauber, which makes a round spot, I used a twisting motion.
There’s a cute, little, branch of leaves in the Animal Friends die set that was just what was needed. I used this die to cut four branches from Granny Apple Green cardstock, and four from Garden Green cardstock. Then, I used tiny dots of Tombow Liquid Glue to adhere the branches in pairs around the stenciled oval.
Rhino is truly sorry, and even has a tear to show it. I’m truly sorry that the tear is from a retired pack of Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes, but I had to use it. Everything else is current, and available for your shopping pleasure at my store.
