Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Sitting Here stamp set. This stamp set was given to me by Stampin’ Up! at the Onstage Local event in April this year. This is the first card I have made using it (apart from one greeting) – I know, it’s embarrassing. However, the release of the Watercolour Pencils has made me view this stamp set in a new light. (I told you I have been scouring my stash of stamps to find images to colour.) Anyway the SUO Challenge to use Circles, Ovals or Squares on your creation inspired me to create this card. I stamped the greeting from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Crumb Cake card using Early Espresso ink. I embossed the stamped card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and then used a sponge to add Crumb Cake lightly across the embossed card before attaching to scored and folded Early Espresso card. I stamped the swing seat image onto Shimmer White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the image using Early Espresso and Old Olive Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. The image was cut using one of the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, attached to an Early Espresso scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies before attaching to the centre of the embossed Crumb Cake card. I stamped the pillows onto Shimmer White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them using the Real Red and Basic Gray Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen. The pillows were hand cut and using the stylus from my scoring Tool, and a foam mat, I gave them a little dimension. They are attached to the image panel using dimensionals.
To decorate the inside of the card, I embossed Crumb Cake card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and once more used a sponge to add Crumb Cake ink across the card. I attached a narrow strip of Early Espresso card behind one long edge of the embossed card before attaching to Whisper White card.
Well I am impressed, I love this card. It’s just the right sort of card to send to a friend who you haven’t seen for a while. What do you think?
Bye for now,
