My favorite story!

Hello my friends!

It’s Kleri here and today I would like to share with you a little card I made inspired by some challenges and a super cute stamp set by My Favorite Things called Our Story. I have to admit I fell in love instantly with this stamp set as soon as it came out and I was after it for months until I managed to get hold of it! Being a bookworm myself I can’t help thinking that it is simply adorable! Don’t you agree?

Quick Instructions:

To make this card, I stamped all the images on a spare cardstock and colored them using Copic markers. I then used my brown markers to create a flooring effect on my panel. I die cut a frame using 2 different sizes of the rectangular nested dies and adhered it with glue where I wanted my scene to be. Then I fussy cut the images and I used double sided tape to adhere them on my panel. Last but not least, I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and doodled the stitching with white gel pen. When that was all dry I put it on my panel using double sided tape. All done!Easy!

  • Kraft Cardstock paper – white

  • Copic markers: E00, E11, E51, E35, E49, E57, B12, B95, B97, YG03, YG17, YG67, C1,C3, C5, C7,

  2. This is such an adorable card! What a great interpretation of our theme! I love the clean look of this, yet it still has great details. That woodgrain floor you made is incredible! And you got a really lovely effect with the faux white stitching, too. This made me smile and I’m so glad you shared your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
