Something Extra Sweet
Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring several items from the Pawsome shop!
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I used a paper trimmer to cut down my panels for this card. The top panel being a white piece of card stock. Using the Rays of Sunshine Background Stencil, I used teal ink to ink on the rays. Using a lighter hand, I inked on the same color without using the stencil to give the background some nice color. This step could be done before using the stencil and use the stencil to add additional color. I cut a small piece of woodgrain cardstock to use to ground my images.
I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of 120lb white cardstock. The images I used were from Sweet CupcakesBday Cupcakes Hoppy Easter. 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 white heat embossed a sentiment from the Bday Cupcakes set in the same color as one of my background panels.
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 Sweet Cupcakes and Bday Cupcakes sets and sentiments from the Bday Cupcakes and Macrons sets.
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 black glaze pen on the eyes and nose of the bear. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I added Glossy Accents to the bear’s eyes, donuts, chocolate fudge, cherry, and the balls on top of the white cupcake. Then Nuvo Drops in White Blizzard to the hearts, the bear’s nose, and the stars on the cupcake.
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.
