Witt & Sass launch Tropic Like It's Hot- Celebrate Weirdness Card

Hi there and happy you made it back to my blog!!  This week it's a "Tropical Party" at Witt & Sass!  My first card focuses on the funny sentiment and small pineapple image from the Tropical Party stamp set that I slightly modified 😁  Look at the stamp image below my card and see what I changed.
To make this card, I started by die cutting the Concentric Circles Die by Neat & Tangled for Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval release.  It is a smaller die, like for a notecard, so I opted to layer it on some striking foiled cardstock by Creative Vision Stamps.  It comes as pre-designed toner sheets that you foil with the heat transfer foil of your choice.  I used Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils in Silver Sequins.  I rounded the corners to match my diecut.  To adhere my die cut, I opted to emboss the red cardstock with the Concentric circles die, then fussy cut around it to match my diecut.  With embossing the red cardstock, the white die cut sort of "settled in" to the embossed layer and made adhering it much easier (plus the delicate circles almost seem to sink in a bit, which is a cool look, I think).  I then stamped the sentiment from the Tropical Party stamp set in the middle of the white band of cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx Ink then added some clear embossing powder to make it pop even more.  Next I stamped my pineapples and colored them first with my Copic markers, then used my At You Spica Glitter Pens to add subtle sparkle to the colored tops of the Pineapples and their glasses (used silver sparkle on the glasses).  I next added a layer of adhesive backed Fun Foam behind the red cardstock that was layered behind my die cut piece for a little dimension, then adhered it to my foiled layer.  I then adhered that to my A2 top folding base layer red cardstock.  I added some adhesive backed epoxy stars from Stampin' Up! and looked at my card.  It wasn't quite right.  That's when I knew I had to change the mouths on the pineapples.  I got out my black, fine tipped Faber-Castell Pitt Artists Pen and made that final adjustment.  Yes... that was much better!!
I hope you enjoyed my somewhat "weird" card!  To see other designer's creations, go to Witt & Sass Facebook page (you'll need to join first), or check Instagram @wittandsassstampco.  Also the store's website has lots of inspiration and information about W & S, some of it really funny, really!  Their website is https://www.wittandsassstampcompany.com/  Also, don't miss out on all the Blog stuff, too.  You'll find that at https://www.wittandsassstampcompany.com/blogs/news   However, if you just want to see more of my stuff, visit me on Instagram, that's where all my work is located.  I'm jktaylor911.  I don't blog every card, so IG has so much more!
