Get the Extra Scoop!
Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Extra Scoop set from this most recent Birthday Release. I am always in need of birthday cards and this is a really fun one.
I like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I used some rectangle stitched dies to cut a fun patterned paper panel and a white panel of cardstock. I sat the white panel to the side and I used some liquid glue to adhere my background panel to the card base.
I like to put the base under a couple of my Misti’s to help it lie flat. I prepped a scrap of green cardstock and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Extra Scoop set. Then I cut it using a sentiment label die, however, this could easily be cut with a paper trimmer and scissors.
I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Use your favorite color medium to color in the images. I prefer Copics usually. You can fussy cut the images or use the coordinating dies.
I finished off my images using a white gel pen to add some accents. I laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. I was really trying to create the look of patterned paper with die cuts.
Stamping an image and sentiment on the inside finishes the card off nicely. It is easier to stamp an image and/or sentiment on the inside of the card before adhering the card panel to the base. The bulk of the foam tape can make it difficult to get a good impression using a Misti Stamping tool. I stamped the inside of the card using images and a sentiment from the set and a sentiment from the Macarons set.
My very last step is adding Glossy Accents and Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to give a few of the images some sparkle and shine.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. Have a wonderful day and make sure to check out all the goodies in the Pawsome Stamps shop.
