Happy Thursday, friends! Please welcome back special guest Channin Pelletier to our blog! She’s sharing a completely adorable NEW card inspiration using a brand new stamp set from Waffle Flower Crafts! Please watch the video for more info, and enjoy!
Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I am so excited to be back at Simon Says! In today’s video today I’m creating a sweet card with the new Smiling Stamp Set from Waffle Flower Craft’s April Release! This adorable set, illustrated by Flora Waycott, is perfect for coloring and I just adore these two kitties with their sweet expressions!
First, I die cut an A2 panel out of watercolor paper using the largest die from the Lacy Layers Die set. Next, using a MISTI I stamped one of the kitties and a sentiment from the Smiling Stamp Set on the panel. I stamped the cat in Distress Ink Antique Linen, a light colored water-based ink perfect for no-line coloring, and the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black, a waterproof ink.
Next, I smooshed various Distress Inks onto a sheet of plastic which I use like a palette and then painted the images and the background with the watered down inks. Once finished I set the panel aside to dry and then stamped the largest flower on a scrap of watercolored paper in some more Antique Linen, watercolored it and then fussy cut it out once it was dry. To finish up the card, I adhered the panel to an A2 top-folding card
base (4.25” x 11”, scored & folded at 5.5”) with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and then attached the flower with foam tape.
I hope you enjoyed today’s video and card, thanks so much for stopping by!
