I created two cards to share today. :)
The first card utilizes Lawn Fawn's Critters in the 'Burbs stamp set:
I die cut a label from Neenah Solar White Cardstock using the Stampin' Up Sizzix Top Note Die.
To create the cute little stamped scene, I combined the dog and tree on the Fiskars Stamp Press and stamped the images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. Then I stamped the tire swing. Once the scene was all stamped, I was ready to add some color to the sweet little puppy with these Copic Markers:
Next, I stamped each of the images on Masking Paper and cut each image out and adhered it over the colored images. I also masked off a strip at the bottom. (Mine have been used before, thus the ink on them.)
I also stamped some grass along the masking paper (also from the Critters in the 'Burbs Lawn Fawn set) using Garden Green CTMH ink.
The bottom part of my label needs a little color, eh? I used Shabby Shutters Tim Holtz Distress Ink and the Ink Blending Tool to add it. I put the masks back in place so I didn't mess up my Copic Colored images.
To complete the card, I used a Sizzix embossing folder to emboss the front of the card. I rounded the corners with the Corner Chomper Crop-a-dile and then used a sanding block to sand the embossed design.
The label is adhered with foam adhesive and I added a punched heart attached with a mini staple and some twine with a button.
