Hello my friends! Well it appears that winter has arrived with a vengeance in Kelowna. We had a huge dump of snow on Friday and it's been snowing on and off all weekend long. Monday brought a LOT more snow. I don't mind it for playing in with the little one but that's about it. How do you feel about snow? I think people either love it or hate it. I'm pretty sure you know which side I'm on.
So today's card is appropriate with our weather. This is card #8 in the Crafting at the Lakehouse series. This is one that I designed and it uses the All Bundled Up stamp set.
I started by lining up the three animal stamps on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock in my Stamp-a-ma-jig. When I was pleased with their positioning, I closed the hinged plate to pick up the stamps. That way they would be perfectly lined up for everyone to make their cards. I added Black Staz On ink to the stamps and closed the door to stamp my images onto the Shimmery White cardstock. I then coloured my images using Watercolour Pencils and blended them using a Blender Pen. The colours I used are Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Garden Green and Real Red.
I attached the stamped piece to a piece of Real Red cardstock using my adhesive. I added the strip of DSP from the Gingham Cottage DSP pack to the red cardstock below the stamped piece. This created an unsightly line where the two different pieces met. To make this look nice, I added a piece of ribbon from the Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo pack. I placed the ribbon across the line and secured it at the back using tape. I used another piece of the Garden Green ribbon to tie a faux knot. I then attached this all to a card base of Basic White Thick cardstock.
On a small piece of Shimmery White cardstock, I stamped my sentiment using Black Staz On ink. I trimmed around the words using my paper snips and then added the sentiment to my card front using dimensionals. That completes this card.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this one.
Stay well and keep creating!
