Ok, this week it’s ‘One for the kids’ over on Top Tip Tuesday and a card for a baby/child on The Tuesday ThrowDown. As my two youngest always love stampin’ animals and colouring them in…from bugs to dinosaurs… a cute,little woodland creatures got to be a winner….right? And I’ve combined this with a technique I’ve been wanting to try for ages .
This stamp is from the Fast and Fun Notes Stamp set. It’s a cute image of a hedgehog with a butterfly on its nose. I’ve stamped this image once onto Whisper White and cut the it out. Then I’ve reversed it to give him a little mate facing him nose to nose.
Clever, aye .
And here’s the top tip how to do it. I’ve inked the stamp up and laid it on the table. Then using my brayer (available from Stampin’ Up!) I’ve rolled it across the stamp, then straight away rolled the brayer on to fabulous Whisper white card, thus transferring the image. Woo hoo! It worked first time…although I do recommend you only try this with Whisper White card. It’s sooo smooth you can’t go wrong!
I’ve used River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist for the butterflies made with Beautiful Wings embosslit and added a Happy Birthday greeting from one of the other stamps from the same set.
I’ve made this as a 15cm square card, but I think it might have been better as an A6. I’ll give that a go next I think. So I hope you like it. Let me know what you think….
