Coffee llama and chunky sweaters
Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Coffee Llama stamp set and the Chunky Sweater stencil from this most recent Spooktacular Release. This is such a quick and easy card to make.
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I used a stitched rectangle die to cut all of my background panels. I inked on a red distress oxide ink around the edges of my middle panel. Then I cut a panel from cream cardstock. I inked over the Chunky Sweater stencil with three different distress oxide inks and splatter on a little bit of black distress paint. I put this panel to the side to dry completely.
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.
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 with an image from the Coffee Llama set and sentiment from the XL Birthday Greetings set.
Once the background panel was completely dry, 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 laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. I finished off my images using white gel pen to add some accents and a black glaze pen for the eyes. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I added Glossy Accents to the nose and Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to the foam in the coffee.
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.
