I had some new stamps arrive so couldn’t wait to have a play with them
They are by Woodware and I have the main stamp and sentiment and the background stamp.
I started by creating an easel card using white card, I was using the blue Easiscore board so with the short sides at the left and right i scored along line 7, spun the card so the long sides were now at left and right and scored again down line 7 – this excess was chopped off but put to one side. Next I folded one side in half making the base of the easel card.
Using a sheet of pink card I cut a panel to fit on the top fold, used the nip corner punch and then stuck this to the easel fold using double sided tape. Next I cut a piece of white card approx 14x14cm and stamped the main image in the centre. I used Blossom pro marker to colour the Sneakers then nipped the corners and used the blossom pen to colour a border all around the card – I went round twice so it was darker than the pink mat. This panel was then stuck to the pink panel and left a narrow border all around the panel.
For the base of the easel I trimmed a piece of pink card to fit the base of the card, nipped the corners then stuck in place using double sided tape.
Another white panel – 14x14cm – was cut and had the corners nipped, then I stamped the big background stamp all over using blank Versafine ink. Once the ink had dried I used the Blossom pro marker to colour in the tiny sneakers.
I also stamps some more onto one piece of the extra card I cut at the start...
Using the pink card I cut a piece that was the width of the card and about 5cm deep, I used a Tonic border punch to punch a border along both long edges and then stuck this across the centre of the card.
I stamped the sentiment using Black Versafine ink onto the last scrap of white card, trimmed it down then ran the Blossom pen around it before adding thick foam tape to the back and finally positioning it in the centre of the pink panel.
I coloured the odd sneakers that I had stamped onto the scrap card – then used 2 at each side of the sentiment so they were facing each other.
I would like to say the card is finished – but it doesn’t look it!! I feel it needs something on the main image panel but have no idea as to what – have you??
I will use some glossy accents on the main sneakers but wanted to get it shared before I forgot!!!
Would love to hear what you think to the card and also if you can suggest something/anything to go on the main panel – or does it not need anything else?
I will be back again tomorrow
