Another one I made earlier

Still playing ‘catch up’ so here is another card from August. My husband asked for a card for a colleague who was retiring so out came the old acrylic stamps.


Front of card

Materials used:
Dimension Stamps – Garden Shed Set (no longer available)
Clarity Stamps – Bird House set
stamping card
A5 white card blank
Copic pens

I stamped the garden shed onto the front of the card blank and then again with all the tools I wanted onto stamping card. I coloured all my images in with the Copics and then added the wooden plank detail to the back of the shed on the front of the card. From the second shed image I cut the front and the door and mounted these on top of the card using foam tape to give the shed some depth.

Behind the shed door

I cut out all the elements I wanted to add to my card and attached them to the card base, some just flat and some with foam pads. Finally I stamped on the birds from the Clarity set where I wanted then and added the banner.

Sometimes the idea you have in your head do actually work when you get going on constructing them! I was so pleased when it all worked and the shed door opened to reveal all the tools etc inside!

Thank you for stopping for a while. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
