Combining Stamp Sets for Scene Cards
Good morning! Jess here with a card combining two stamp sets to create a fun scene!
To create my card I started by blending Navy, Deep Ocean, and Summer Sky ink onto a panel of Hero Hues Dove White cardstock. Once I was done blending I trimmed it down to 3.5" by 7". Next I die-cut clouds from the Nesting Cloud and Nesting Cloudy Infinity Dies and saved the negative outline of the clouds (I kept the actual clouds for a future project). I placed the cloud negative over the bottom of the panel and blended a little Unicorn White pigment ink over my makeshift stencil. I kept turning and shifting my cloud negative to get a different look as I continued blending across the bottom and top of the panel. Then I set that aside to dry completely while I worked on the rest of the card.
Next I stamped the airplane and dog from Fly High Animals with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Clear Embossing Powder. I colored them with Copics and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. Isn't that pup adorable!? Once my background panel was dry I stamped the Hello sentiment from Color Layering Waves with Versamark using my MISTI. I heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder and then placed it back in the MISTI and stamped it again with Versamark. This time I heat-embossed it with White Puff Embossing Powder for a raised puffy effect. When I saw the sentiment I thought that the intended sand effect would also create an interesting sky-writing effect for my scene! And the White Puff Embossing Powder is PERFECT for achieving that look! I took a versamark pen and added a few squiggles leading to and from the sentiment and heat-embossed those with White Embossing Powder. Then I added more dimension to the squiggles by heat-embossing over them with White Puff Embossing Powder. Next I adhered the blended panel to a Dove White panel cut to 3.75" by 7". I adhered the airplane with foam mounting tape and then tucked the dog in with Precision Glue. Then I added a few accents with a white gel pen. Finally I added a few drops of Precision Glue to the dog's scarf and the sky writing and sprinkled them with Snowfall Glitter for a little extra sparkle!
I hope this inspires you to look at your stamps in a new way and see if they can be combined in new and unusual ways! I totally think the sentiment looks like sky-writing, what do you think? ;) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
