Wizard's Apprentice Believe in Yourself Card with Kindred Stamps

Saturday, August 19, 2023

I was so excited to get this stamp set! I just love this movie - it reminds me a lot of my dad and the grumpy owl is one of my favorites. When making this card, I really wanted my characters to shine, so I started with stamping the images and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Using my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers, I colored in my images and added some white gel pen highlights.

For my background, I used Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky and Speckled Egg to ink blend on mixed media cardstock. Using the Celestial Stencil, I added in some clear glitter stencil paste to create a subtle but shiny background. While that was drying, I cut out a sheet of the Celestial Patterned Paper in A2 size and added it to my card base.

I also stamped my sentiment in blue ink and I cut round it, trying to round the corners. I also stamped the magical stars on vellum with gold embossing powder and used the coordinating die for that as well. For my snowy ground, I cut out a small panel using the Card Basics Dies in white cardstock and covered it with Snowfall Grit Paste. I set that aside to dry while I cut out my stenciled background with the rectangle die as well.

The stenciled background was adhered to the card base and once the snowy ground was dry, I added that as well. I popped up my stamped characters and my sentiment next, then added the stars on vellum with liquid adhesive, trying to keep the adhesive hidden behind the stamped images. I also added a few Pops of Color for a little more gold. Finally, I went over my sentiment with a clear glitter brush, but it's hard to capture it on camera. I hope you enjoy this card as much as I loved making it!
