I hope you all have had a great week and spent a lot of your time stamping. When I don’t make cards, scrapbook pages, gifts, or altered art more than a day or two, my hands are dying to get busy crafting! I can’t just sit and watch TV at night, I have to be doing something else at the same time. I’m usually watercoloring (like the card I’m going to share today), cutting card stock for my card making classes, or making gifts.
The Sitting Here Stamp Set is one of my favorites from the new 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! catalog. There are so many possibilities with this set.
Directions to make this card:
Cut the Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and emboss it with the Lovely Lace Embossing Folder. Adhere this piece to a Whisper White Card Stock Base.
Stamp the swing image on the Watercolor Paper with Black StazOn Ink. Stamp the dog image on the Watercolor Paper and a piece of paper or a Post It Note to use as a mask. Cut out the dog image on the Post It Note and place it on top of the stamped dog on the Watercolor Paper, Stamp the basket image at the bottom of the dog.
Water color the stamped panel with the Stampin’ Write Markers and an Aqua Painter. Let it dry.
Stamp the bird on top of the swing and color.Stamp the two pillows and the greeting scraps of Whisper White Card Stock and cut them out.
Adhere them to the stamped panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Glue this panel to the card front.
