Another Sunny Challenges Card

May 15, 2012

I loved the sketch for our challenge this week and as well as making the card I shared on Sunday, I used the sketch to make a card for my class at Beachmere.   I wanted the ladies to use markers to ink up their stamps and the single tree image in the Lovely as a Tree stamp set works perfectly.

I embossed Whisper White card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and attached it to Early Expresso card stock.  I attached a piece of Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper to Early Expresso card stock and then to the card front.  I stamped “very merry” from the Short and Sweet stamp set onto Whisper White card stock, attached it to Early Expresso card stock and then to the card front.  The tree image is inked using Old Olive and Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Markers and then stamped onto Whisper White card stock (the ladies used the stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the image was exactly where they wanted it).  I love how much detail you can get by using this method to ink up your stamps.  Basically I colour most of the image using the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and then use the Early Expresso Stampin’ Write Marker to add colour to the base and parts of the stem.  It gives the image so much more dimension.  The image is attached to Early Expresso card stock and then to the card front using dimensionals.

I love this card, what do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
