New home!

Hello my friends!

Hope you are having a nice relaxing day! Today I have a “New Home” card to share with you! I had this gorgeous stamp set from Neat & Tangled on my desk and as I was looking at these adorable squirrels I thought that they would be appropriate for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! The theme is “Home sweet home” and they look so cozy and at home, don’t you agree?


Quick Instructions:

I started my card by applying Dylusions Dirty Martini all over my base using a baby wipe. Next I cut a piece of black cardstock to the shape you see in the photo. I used it as a guide to mask off the sides of my green panel and then I used my stamp platform to create the background using a border die. While this was drying I stamped the image on white cardstock and colored it with watercolors and Inktense pencils. I let it aside to dry and I stamped the banner and the sentiment on white cardstock. I colored it using Copics. Once this was done, I fussy cut everything and adhered all the elements on my card. Easy and fun!
