Thinking of You Card
Posted on April 27 2020
Hello LDRS fans! Maria Russell here on the blog with you. I have a confession to make! This lockdown is starting to make me feel anxious and my way of dealing with anxiety is to stamp and color images. I make some camomile tea, put on some relaxing music and just color, color, color!
This card that I made today reminds me of home. Everything about it is so serene! I mixed and matched a couple of stamp sets to create my scene. I am showcasing the Up & Away stamp set and coordinating dies, with the Thank Ewe and Mountains stamp set, along with the At the Clouds Edge Border die. The sentiment came from the Anytime Stack stamp set, and die-cut using the Sentiment stack coordinating die.
I stamped the images with Raven Hybrid ink on some white card stock. I also stamped the tree and picket fence from the Thank Ewe stamp set on some masking paper to mask the images. I colored the images in with my alcohol markers and used the Up & Away coordinating die to cut them out.
The clouds and the grass hill was die-cut using the At the Clouds Edge die. I colored the grass hill with alcohol markers again to match the ones I've already colored. I foam-mounted the clouds and grass hill on the card to create more dimension.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using the Anytime Stack stamp set, and die-cut using the Sentiment stack coordinating die on some black card stock. This stamp and die combination is one of my favorites now because you can die-cut a bunch of them in one go. I keep the others inside the sleeve so that I can use it for another project. Easy, peasy!
I also have a process video of this card today (with speed coloring) if you're interested.
I hope I've inspired you today! You can also go to my blog for a complete list of supplies. Thank you for stopping by and have an amazing day! Happy stamping!
