Hi everyone, the super cute critters from the From All of Us stamp set are making another appearance today. They are so adorable. I am so enjoying colouring the image with my Stampin’ Blends but, of course, you could use your preferred colouring medium. If you are unsure what colours to use I recently shared my colour combos on the Stampers Workshop Facebook page.
What’s different about today’s card is that I created more of a scene rather than just having them on their own. The stamp set comes with two trees, or they could be used just as branches, and I thought it would be fun to have these showing in the background. You will need to do some masking to achieve this look. Stamp the critters first and then on a post-it note (I like the ones which have adhesive all over the background rather than just the top). Cut out the post-it note. My tip for this is to cut towards the inside edge of the stamped line so that you don’t end up with a halo effect (and if you take a look near the face of the ostrich you can see what I mean). If you do end up with a halo you can, of course, just leave it or you can use your Stampin’ Write Markers to fill in the gaps. Position the post-it note over your original stamped image and then you are ready for the next step. Stamp the trees in place. Remove the post-it notes and voila there’s your scene! Looks great, doesn’t it?!
I also used Versamark to stamp the trees repeatedly over my card base. I love this subtle look.
Here’s my card…
Oh, these critters are just the cutest! I hope you will enjoy crafting with the From All of Us stamp set as much as I do. I also hope you’ll give masking a go. It’s so easy!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set, die set, etc, also comes a part of a bundle or suite, I link to all so that you have choices. I also link refills and basic supplies like adhesives which correspond with items used to make my projects. These links take you to my online store.
