How it's made...Wanna Hang-Out?

Today's card is soooo cute! I thought I'd show you how it's made just for kicks and giggles....

First, I picked out the cutest stamp set that I'm sooooo lovin' from There She Goes. It's called Loads of Fun. I picked a cute image and sentiment and went to work. I stamped the image twice, once on scrap cardstock to make a mask, once on a cardstock cut and embossed with a square Nestie.

Next, cut out the mask.

Using removable adhesive, adhere the mask. Love this adhesive.

Using a scrap piece of cardstock, I covered the edges that I wanted to remain white as a frame. Then using the daubers from the CTMH distressing kit, sponge CTMH Crystal Blue ink for the sky, Indian Corn Blue as sky density. OK, so I forgot to take a pic of sponging the grass, but I placed the negative image of the mask in place and used Sweet Leaf ink for grass/ground.

Next, get ready to pull your hair out! I stamped the clothesline again on CTMH Twitterpated patterned paper (and since I was at it, I did some on CTMH Topstitch papers too) and cut them out. These images are soooo tiny.

Then I adhered them, colored in the clothesline with my COPICS.

Adhere the focal image on the card and it's finished! The sentiment on the stamp set was too small for the 5x7 card, so I found a font on my computer that was close to Jessica's stamp set sentiment font and printed it. I love this card and there was TONS of lovin' put into it too!!

Hope that shows you the steps...well the ones that i remembered to photograph! Oopsie.

  1. It's beautiful, Corinna, and I'd like to say that I understood how to make it, but I didn't! Of course it's my fault: I don't know many of the words you used and I'm completely ignorant about how to make a card.
    Indeed I think that your works are terrific and just love your good taste!
