Hi pepps! Here is the card I have up on the Scrap N Stamp blog today.
This March my parent's will be married for 38 years. Every year they request that I make cards for them to give to each other. Here is one of the cards.
Make an A2 card with white cardstock. Fold in half with a bone folder. I thought brick/subway tiles would make a nice background; however, I did not have a stencil. I created one with a piece of cardstock, pencil and exacto knife.
Then I inked my home-made stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. (The green on the top of the card is post-it notes to prevent over inking.)
I added Weathered Wood Distress Ink to the sides and splashed some clear water droplets on top.
To create the sentiment cloud, I stamped the sentiment "Let's Bond" from the My Favorite Things stamp set Cute Chemists. Then I partially stamped the explosion cloud stamp from the My Favorite Things stamp set Cute Chemists around the "Let's Bond" sentiment numerous times to create the completed cloud.
I stamped the boy and numerous containers from the Cute Chemists set with Memento Tux Black and coloured them with a alcohol based marker. Then I cut a strip of black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the card. I added all the other coloured images from the Cute Chemists stamp set and adhered them to the card with dry adhesive, as shown.
