Hey friends! I hope your week is chugging along smoothly. Today I’m popping in with a silly card from Miss Ink Stamps featuring some of my favorite squirrels from Oh, Nuts! I paired them with a little stenciling and decofoil for some texture and shine.
To start my card, I pulled out the Ins & Outs Quatrefoil and Latte Love stencils. The Ins & Outs stencils are 2-piece sets that work together to give you a center shape and a frame. Today I inked up the center piece with Lawn Fawn walnut ink and a blending brush, then taped the Latte Love stencil over the opening and added another layer of the same walnut ink. I removed the stencils and placed the quatrefoil frame stencil in place and spread Thermoweb transfer gel through the opening. I removed the stencil and set my panel aside to dry. Next, I turned on the laminator to heat up while the transfer gel dried and I cleaned up my workspace.
While I was waiting to foil my panel, I stamped images from Oh, Nuts! and colored them with my copic markers. I used the scan-n-cut to cut them out and set them aside. Next, I placed my stenciled panel in a folded sheet of parchment paper and added a piece of gold decofoil over the top. I ran this through my laminator and voila! Shiny, beautiful frame around my stenciling! This never gets old.
I trimmed my panel down to 4×5.25 inches and stamped a sentiment below the foiled frame. I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place. Then I added foam tape to the back of the panel and popped it up on a white card base.
To finish things off I glued a scattering of gold baubles from the Twiddler’s Nook shop and added black glaze pen to the squirrel eyes and noses. After the eyes were dry I added a dot of white gel pen for a highlight.
Aren’t these furry little guys super cute?!? I love them and this sentiment leaves room for so many different types of cards too!
