Happy April 6th. Today I am on the Ink Blot Shop blog HERE and I am sharing a card that I created using...
- Giant Hey You stencil
- Winging It stamp set
- Sentiment Label Blocks stamp set
- String It Out Background stamp set
I love when you can mix a background stamp set and stencil where both still shine on your card, of course you have to choose your inks wisely but most work together.
I started with cutting my card base on white card-stock. I always fold my cards using a bone folder so I get a clean straight fold. This card is measured at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Now it is time to stamp the String It Out Background stamp. When stamping a background stamp I always use my Misti. This helps me to get a fully inked stamped image when stamping multiple times. I went with an earth tone color for the background.
Next I lined up my Giant Hey You stencil and used Ranger oxide ink pad saltwater taffy with a blending brush. I love how this pops on the card but still leaves the background shining through it.
I then stamped this adorable image from the Winging It stamp set and colored with Copic Sketch Markers R22, R21, B00 and E40. I added a little white gel pen here and there and then fussy cut using very fine scissors. When fussy cutting remember to move your card-stock along with the scissors to get a clean cut around the image. I added the images using foam adhesives to give a little dimension to my card.
Finishing up with stamping a sentiment from the Sentiment Label Blocks stamp set and heat embossing it on a piece of scrap colored card-stock. I also used foam adhesives to give a little more dimension to my card.
That is all for today.
I hope you enjoyed todays card.
Thanks for stopping by.
