Sorry that I have been AWOL for a while but you know how life gets at times. I am back though with a new post all about Issue 104 of Creative Stamping magazine. I do have to admit that this magazine is my all time favourite. This issue comes with some beautiful Japanese inspired stamps and a gorgeous embossing folder. These have been designed by Paper Discovery, so no wonder they are stunning.
I wanted to make a tunnel style card to really show off as many stamps as possible. This magazine does come with some digital papers to download and print, but as per normal my printer was not playing ball, so I have used the Botanical Gardens pad from The Works instead. £3 can’t go wrong.
Firstly I have stamped the stamps I needed, with my Versafine Ink Pad and a stamping platform onto white card and coloured them in with my Arteza Everblends and Copics.
I, then fussy cut the images and started to construct the card. I have used the infamous Lidl card stock in purple and royal blue, which I have then used the Botanical Gardens to mat on top. I have then cut the circles out of the middles to create the tunnel.
After putting the card parts together I started to think about where the images would go. I really like the focal circle stamp you get in the stamp set, so I used that as the main image in the background and then used all the rest to make a scene on each of the layers.
Finally I used the embossing folder on some dark metal mirri card, and put them on the sides of the card.
Hope you like it.
