For today’s card, I used the Home To Roost stamp set from the SAB catalog. This stamp set will be available till March 31st and can be redeemed with a $50 order.
First, I cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock in half to use for my card base. I scored it at 4 1/4 inches.
Second, I stamped the Crackle Paint Background Stamp onto Basic Gray cardstock with Basic Gray ink. (Hint: Lay the large stamp facing up, ink it and place the paper onto it. Press evenly over the back of paper to get a clear, crisp image. I prefer my Background stamps to be wood mounted as it stamps a better picture.)
Third, I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock. I embossed this piece with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder. Next,I wrapped a piece of Basic Black Baker’s Twine around the left side of this piece three times and secured it in the back. I added a bow with a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional. Then, I adhered this layer to the upper right corner of the Basic Gray layer with SNAIL adhesive. This new combined layer was adhered to the card front with the same adhesive.
Fourth, I stamped the rooster image from the Home to Roost stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Next, I colored the image with the Real Red, Basic Black and Whisper White Watercolor Pencils. Then, I used a Blender Pen to combine the colors. Following this, I die cut the piece with the circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I layered this piece onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally, I stamped a sentiment and floral image inside the card onto Very Vanilla cardstock and Basic Gray ink. I die cut this piece using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and adhered it to the card with SNAIL.
