warm wishes + stretch your stamps


Hello!

Hope all is well!

I'm going to show how I stretched my stamps with a little masking. I used the bunny and chick from my Spring stamp set to create a Christmas card by adding the snowman's hat (from my Warm Wishes) stamp set and drawing a hat on the chick.




For the chick I took some washi tape (post-it's are great for this too...I usually use post-it but ran out of them) and cover the top of the chick's head where I want to draw the hat. Draw the hat with a pencil first than trace over it with a marker and erase the pencil.


Ink up the stamp, remove the washi tape and stamp.



I did the same with the rabbit. 



I too the snowman stamp from my Warm Wishes stamp set and masked off everything but the hat, after I inked the hat and took off the washi tape I rubbed off the ink where I wanted the ears to be with a baby wipe.

Don't worry if it doesn't look perfect...once you colour it those little mistakes won't show. Also you can fix any lines (if they didn't stamp clear) with a marker (I use Sakura Pigma Micron) and use a white gel pen to erase any tiny mistakes.



Again, same thing with the ears....





I embossed polka dots on the vellum to create the snow...I adhered the sides of the vellum at the back so the glue doesn't show through at the front.




I coloured my images with Graph'it markers and as you can see any tiny imperfections are gone once coloured in. 


Have a great day!

snow much fun

Hello!
Hope all is well!



On pinterest I noticed the talented Laura's card and immediately  wanted to recreate it using my  Warm Wishes stamp set (thanks Laura for the inspiration).

So for this card I cut out my card base and then I trimmed down (so that it's a bit smaller than my base) white cardstock and used my circle die to cut out my window. I cut blue cardstock to fit under this 'window'.  I haven't used my SRM stickers in a while so I found this cute sentiment.


I cut two strips of velum to use as snow.


Adhere the velum and trim off the sides that are sticking out. Then adhere the window. onto the blue cardstock.


Adhere the 'window' to the card base, add the sentiment and snowman (which I coloured with my Graph'it markers).


Now while this is cute I thought the snowman would be happier with company so I added the bird and the present (which is from my Mr. & Mrs. Claus stamp set).






I had this stamped image already coloured from a couple of days ago and decided to use my scraps from the card above to create a mini tall card...if you will! ;)
I used my Warm Wishes and Mr. & Mrs. Clause stamp sets.




Have a great day!
