Home for the Holidays with Cozy Fireplace
Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Cozy Fireplace stamp set a from this most recent holiday release. This was such a fun, nontraditional card to make!!!
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. 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 some grey ink to match my base panel using a shiplap stencil. I cut a small piece of woodgrain cardstock to make a floor and then added a stitched strip for the molding.
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 used gifts from the Ugly Sweater Stamp Set.
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 a images from the set and sentiment from the Inside Holiday Greetings Stamp Set.
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. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I added Glossy Accents for the lights and Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard for the ornaments/baubles.
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.
