Here we are with Day Three of our Homage to Previously-Released Stamps from The Craft's Meow. The challenge today was to create a Father's Day or masculine card, and I find that I am, like most stampers, shy of masculine images. My card today features stamps from last month's release, Birthday Pun.
S U P P L I E S
Cardstock: Memory Box; Patterned Paper: Down By the Shore (Fancy Pants); Stamps: Birthday Pun (The Craft's Meow); Ink: Staz-On (Tsukineko); Other Mediums: Glossy Accents (Ranger), Le Plume black pen; Pearl: Hero Arts; Tools: Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)
T I P S
Use Staz-On black ink for the darkest, fullest, blackest impression of a silhouette stamp.
You can make hearts easily by using a marker with a brush tip. Push the brush downward on your paper at an angle to form a diagonal, elongated tear-drop swath of ink; add another one angled away from it and you have a heart!
I find it easiest to make hearts upside down, so I turn my card upside down and it gets a whole lot easier for me!
I N S T R U C T I O N S
- Make card base and round corners.
- Adhere strip of patterned paper to card.
- Stamp image and sentiment.
- Adhere pearl heart.
- Make hearts with marker and coat with Glossy Accents.
