I know the season for being outdoors is slowly heading south for the winter, but you can still create them using this simple concept. What a great “dude” card, don’t you think? I am enjoying combining multiple stamp sets on my cards lately. I am currently whipping up some fun samples to represent some of the great Whimsy products for the Jenn Dove’s Boot Camp, the yearly coloring retreat in Arizona.
Creating this Card:
I recently discovered Catherine Pooler Designs fabulous ink pads, and now I am loving solid stamp stamping, and background stamps again. They are so creamy, rich, and leave a fabulous crisp image when used. You will be seeing a lot more hand stamped backgrounds in the future from me.
This is a perfect time to tell you about a SUPER EXCITING FLASH SALE going on for these fabulous stamp pads and ink refills. Today is Catherine Poolers InkAversary! All full size Ink Pads and Refills will be 15% off! (excluding the 6 new Luxe colors). They almost NEVER put their ink on sale, so this is a very special offer! This sale lasts until November 2nd, so be sure and click on this link HERE and check out the beautiful array of colors. Did I mention I purchased the full line of these stamp pads (a girl can’t have just one).
The stamp pads makes a great combination with the new Seasonal Trees clear stamps, and on this card you can see I stamped the pine silhouette under the main image, as well as another tree for the foreground.
I used the Canoe rubber stamp and die cut it using the Notched Rectangle die. After adding the complimenting cardstock layers I used the Friends Word and Shadow die as the sentiment. I think the Canoe is currently out of stock, but you can get on the email list for when it comes back, and there are only a few of the Seasonal Trees currently available in the Whimsy store, as it is quite popular. Don’t wait too long to snag it up! Remember you can use the same concept with so many images being the main focus!
