Good Monday Morning friends!
While finding a little mental solace this weekend I created a card
that would be perfect for the men in our lives.
Guy cards are probably one of the most difficult cards to make but I have found
using Stampscape Stamps and inks is one of the easiest
and most rewarding ways to create a card for the guys!
I was sharing this card creation with my friend Diane (Nellie's Nest) this morning
and she recommended I share it with the challenge going on over at Stamping Sensations
for March which is 'One For The Guys' ... so here it is!
To create the scene, I first die cut an oval out of a piece of heavy card stock to use
as my template then sponged TH blue distress ink on the top and green on the bottom.
Then leaving my template in place I stamped the Stampscapes 'Cabin with Fence' stamp using
Versafine Onyx ink and used the Stampscapes 'Sedge Filler' for the front
Next I colored the fence & cabin using my Spectrum Noir pencils.
Removed the template and stamped the front left corner using the Stampscapes
'Pine Row' stamp, front right corner with 'Endless Creations' birthday sentiment and
felt it needed birds in the sky so I stamped the geese ... another Stampscapes stamp.
For the inside I simply stamped my birthday greeting.
Then I thought it looked too plain ... so grabbed another Stampscapes stamp ...
this time I used the stamp simply named 'Fence'. I thought it tied in well
with my card front scene and added a little character to the inside too.
Here are a few other challenges I found to share in:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Celebration
Fashionable Stamping Challenge - Go To Stamp
(Stampscape scenery stamps, my GO TO for the guys)
One Stitch at a Time Challenge - Anything Goes with Nature
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoyed and found inspiration in my card today.
Please stop back tomorrow when I'll have a card to share with you using
more fabulous die cuts from Dies R Us.
Till then ...
