Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I have such a fun little card to share featuring a cute little stamp set from Picket Fence Studios and coordinating dies. I also used some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and Ranger inks. I started by creating a simple blended background for my card using white cardstock, a Ranger blending tool & mat, and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I was going for a moody sunset kind of backdrop. To add a slightly distressed border I stamped the Ranger Tim Holtz Early Espresso Distress Oxide ink onto my mat, misted it with water, and then drug the edges of the blended background through it. Let dry.
This is also when I stamped the card sentiment in the bottom left-hand corner of the card using Ranger Archival ink. I stamped the super cute images using black Ranger Archival ink, onto white cardstock and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Using a waterbrush and Zig Clean Color Markers I added color to the images. I found a scrap of plaid paper from a vintage Echo Park Paper Co. fall collection to use as one of my card base layers. Mat the blended background in green cardstock and add to the card using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares Regular and the E-Z Runner Petite. Add the stamped and die cut images to the card using Scrapbooking Adhesives by 3L Thin 3D Foam Squares.
