A post – finally, can you believe it. Its been a very busy week!
I really liked this Fall Scene Cling Stamp by Impression Obsession the first time I saw it. It just looked like a place I’d love to visit. I bet there is homemade apple pie in that farm house!
For this card, I decided to create even more of a background and a foreground by stamping twice and cutting out the foreground elements. Here are my 2 pieces colored with Copic markers. (not a great pic – sorry – I had to take it at night).
I found this super sparkly glitter in a small stamp store while on vacation this summer and couldn’t resist (copper is my favorite metallic).
To apply the glitter, I used Oh So Sticky tape. I just put the tape all around the image and then cut it out with a craft knife (saved me from measuring – yep – I’m lazy. I’d rather spend my time coloring than anything else.)
This gave me my sparkly matte around the image and the glitter really seems to stick well to the tape.
One quick tip – if you go around the cut edges of your image with the side of the marker (to color the cut edge) it does not show if you are not so perfect in your cutting.
Here is a picture trying to show the layers. This is one of those cards that really looks better in person (really… honest….)
The Cuttlebub Challange for this week is a Thanksgiving project. Think this counts?
Hope everyone has a happy Friday. (I’m hoping to stamp some more!)
