Hello again! I’m so happy you stopped by today. I just received my latest order from Trinity Stamps and I couldn’t contain myself; I had to make this card immediately! I’ve had it sketched out since I ordered this cute squirrel!
It’s pretty simple really. I die cut the scalloped card front and masked off the stitched edge. Then I used a cloud stencil and distress inks to give the panel a sky and ground. I stamped, colored and die cut my images and then laid them all out to start gluing. I find that liquid glue sticks better to distress ink so that’s what I used here. Then I took the panel and popped it up on an olive green card base.
For finishing touches on this card I used black glaze pen to the squirrel’s eyes and nose and white gel pen throughout the images.
If you’ve read my posts or seen my cards lately, you know this is my newest obsession for rounding out a card. Look at what those fun little details do for it. I just love it!
The sentiment on this card cracks me up. It’s my favorite from the whole set. I’m seeing a mini note in my daughter’s lunch with this on it in the near future!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
I’ve found a new-to-me company and I’m instantly obsessed!!! Trinity Stamps – I love all of their stuff and can’t wait to grow my collection. My first order arrived Saturday and I started playing right away. Today I’m sharing one from the Mr. Snailman set I ordered.
This was a fairly simple, one-layer card and it even required ZERO masking! Hooray for that one!
I stamped my snail and mailbox and colored them with copics. Then I stared at my panel for a very long time. It didn’t help. So, I slept on it and when I woke up in the morning, it hit me…stencils! So I got up and stenciled some cute clouds and gave it a ground and voila! I love it! For finishing touches I added glossy accents to all of the hearts and white gel pen accents throughout the images. After all that I popped the panel on a piece of craft foam for dimension and then to a blue card base and it’s ready to go.
Here’s a closer look at the glossy shine. I love what that adds to an otherwise simple card.
Once this one was finished I had an idea for a Christmas version of this same card. Be on the look out for that one soon!
Thanks for stopping by and, as always, I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
