Hey everyone, Britney here! I am so excited to be on the Pawsome Stamps blog today featuring the Sweet Christmas stamp set from the recent release. This card came together so quickly!!! I can see me making this card again very soon!
I always like to start with my background first and I build up from there. I cut some background panels with stitched rectangle dies out of solid cardstock (two white and one purple). I used the Radiant Burst stencil to add a little something to draw in the eye. I wanted to create more interest, so I splattered on ink from a re-inker. I think it gave it a little something extra with the stencil. I also used the Candy Stripes stencil for the back panel. I knew I was layering this panel, so I saved a lot of time and ink by only inking around the edges of the paper. I white heat embossed a sentiment from the set on a scrap piece of the purple paper.
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 used a sentiment and images from the Sweet Christmas stamp set.
I used the Misti Stamping Tool and a Copic-friendly ink to stamp images onto a piece of smooth, 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 laid out my images to get perfect placement and popped them up using foam tape. I finished off my images using a black glaze pen for the eyes and white pen to add some accents. I love adding a lot of final details to a card to give it a little something extra. I do this last so I don’t smudge anything!
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.
