As part of my busy day yesterday, I was determined to stamp so I did. First I went looking for a good sketch to try, and found this one at Stamping 411.
Can you believe I hadn't even opened this awesome stamp set, called Garden From The Heart, until yesterday?! This is one of my favorites in the entire Occasions Mini catalog too! I knew that I wanted to use our markers and watercolor paper for these images cause it just makes the color POP!
It looks like I cut out the hat and gloves separately doesn't it? I didn't though. Instead, for the hat, I stamped it with Black Stazon, masked it, and then using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the vines. The vine stamp by the way, is from the Matchbox Messages stamp set - as is the saying. The trick to make it look like it is cut out separately is all in the shadow. I added a thin line of Creamy Caramel beneath the hat and the gloves. It is just enough to give it some depth.
I wanted more depth for the headband of the hat so I stamped it again, colored it, and cut it out. Then I added a brad and adhered it to all to the main image. Just a little trick I like to do sometimes.
For the gloves and saying: I stamped the gloves with Black Stazon. Then I used a marker and inked up just the sayings portion of a stamp from Matchbox Messages. I stamped the saying and then using scissors I cut around the wrist of the glove and carefully punched everything with the Wide Oval Punch.
Our 1 1/2" Twill cut to size and frayed was adhered to the card front over a Scallop Trim Border. Linen Thread and some Designer Buttons finished off the card.
