With all the wonderful sales going on, I placed several orders from the store. This card features: Cow Hugs from High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Falling Hearts from Neat & Tangled, Snow Village from C.C. Designs, Peak A Frame from Mama Elephant Creative Cuts, and Festive and Frosty Designer Paper Pad from Penny Black.
To create this card, I stamped then masked off the cow images in order to stamp and color the background. For the hills, since I didn't have the Stampingbella Backdrop that I needed, I improvised. I used the Beach Backdrop upside down and didn't ink the ocean line at the bottom of the flipped stamp. Pretty nice hills, right? I then stamped the 3 tree image from C.C. Designs Snow Village and masked them as well. I masked my hills so that I could airbrush the sky with my Copic markers. I used a small cloud die cut in my stash to create the cloud while airbrushing the sky.
I removed the masking on all but the cows and used my Copic markers to color the trees and the grassy hills/ground. I then Copic colored the cute cows and flowers from the same stamp. I added a few white gel pen accents to the cows eyes, hoofs, and flowers and some clear Wink of Stella to the cow bell and bow, and flowers. Next I stamped the Falling Hearts with Versamark and heat embossed it with Ranger Wendy Vecchi Cactus Flower Embossing Powder.
As this panel was only 3.25" x 5.5", I needed to add some additional layers to achieve a standard A2 size card. My card base was craft cardstock and I wanted to accent the yellow/green color of the grass and the pink in the embossed hearts. I decided on some pink Adhesive Glitter Tape from The Ton on either side of my panel and then a strip of paper from the Festive and Frosty paper pad from Penny Black. Lastly I needed a sentiment and more hearts to heat emboss to tie the card together. Before stamping and adhering the layers, I did use the Mama Elephant die from the set that was a large stitched rectangle. Then the sentiment I used was from a Stampin' Up! set called Love you to the Moon. That I stamped in The Ton's Found Topaz Dye ink. I found 2 small hearts from an unknown Stampin' Up! set and stamped them in Versamark and the same Ranger Cactus Flower embossing powder as the other hearts on the card. I adhered all layers together with a tape runner, and I was done!
I hope you enjoyed my card. Blessings to you all,
