Grab a cup of your favorite beverage, sit back and join us on a journey of amazing things you can do with this stamp set. There are over 40 CTMH Consultants joining in on the fun…that’s a LOT of ideas that YOU can take and duplicate with this fun stamp set. If you arrived here from Wendy’s blog you’re on the right path.
I wanted to show how you can use this for a quick & easy card.
- Cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of patterned paper from the Sonoma paper pack.
- Cut a 2.5″ x 2.5″ piece of Olive cardstock.
- Cut a 2″ x 2″ piece of Colonial White cardstock.
- Stamp the owl using Cocoa ink.
- Using the Watercolor Pencils and Blending Pen, color in the owl. I used the Chocolate, Brown Bag, Autumn Terracotta and Olive colors. Tip: Color the image putting more color where there are shadows. It’s easy to go back in and add more color if needed.
- Stamp the sentiment using Cocoa ink on a scrap of Bamboo cardstock. Trim close.
- Using Cocoa ink and the Sea Sponge Texture Tool, distress the edges of all papers.
- Assemble as shown.
- Add the ribbon. Tip: The ribbon knot is glued on top of the ribbon across the card. Since this is a quick, easy card, I trimmed the ribbon at the edges instead of wrapping behind the patterned paper.
