Hello Friends! How are you today? How has your fall or spring been depending on your neck of the woods.
Today I am up on the Stamping Bella blog with a semi fall-ish card. OMG have you seen their holiday release? It will knock your socks off. These are three of my top ten favorites!
I have a few tips to share with you today. For example, what to do if you get ink on your stamped image … do you stamp the image again? Not me …depends on what you are stamping tho lol. Watch the video in HD here and a thumbs up is always appreciated if you like it. For my card I used this sweet little girl and an extra bucket of apples from this. The background has a fall tree in it that I do love but, I decided to cut it off so I could save time NOT coloring that tree plus it’s great for anytime of year.
Today I was short on time to I cut this background down. The big smear on my misti should have been wiped off before I stamped this but, I thought it would be ok. If you choose to work with the mess up it can work to your benefit by stretching your creativity.
In my video I show you how I added texture to the dirt road. (yes yes that rag thing again with this solution lol) I like that the large ink spot determines where my images go and I don’t have to figure out the best place.
Sometimes it’s nice to just cut out an image. To make it easy to cut the scarf out I cut off the fringe. A pattern was added to her scarf and shimmer to the apples with this. I always enlarge the eyes and add eyelashes with this super fine tip 0.03 marker.
The stamp sets I was working with didn’t have any sentiments so I decided to make my own. I could have typed it on my computer, print it, & cut it out … but, I opted to go rouge lol. Using a black fine tip sharpie marker I drew my own talk bubble and wrote inside it. Super easy and speedy!
Thanks for your visit today and have a lovely weekend! Hugs, Kathy
