Zany Zebras through a window
Zany Zebras are too cute! These little guys make me happy. :) Today we are stamping one through a window cut in the cardstock.
Who can resist that? I just makes me giggle. It's simple stamping at its best!
Ingredients: whisper white, soft sea foam, and pacific point cardstocks; tuxedo black Momento and gray granite ink pads; water painter; layering circle and stitched rectangle dies; linen thread; liquid glue and Stampin' dimensionals; Stampin' cut and emboss machine; Stampin' trimmer.
Recipe: Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock in half horizontally, then score and fold horizontally to end up with a card base that is 5.5x4.25". Use the cut and emboss machine and the largest stitched rectangle die to cut a stitched rectangle in a quarter sheet of soft sea foam cardstock. Cut a piece of pacific point cardstock to 5x3.75. Center and layer the pacific point on the soft sea foam on the whisper white, lining the circles up, and adhere with liquid glue (this is easier with liquid glue because you need to line up the scalloped circles, but you can use Stampin' seal if you need to). Place the entire cardstock on the cut and emboss machine, center the third largest scalloped layering circle in the middle of the cardstock slightly towards the top, and cut through all layers. (Note: this works better with the magnetic plate if you have it; and you will end up with an embossed scalloped circle on the inside.) Punch out the three the circles and save for another project. Ink the zany zebra in tuxedo black Momento ink. Shut the card and stamp the zebra through the scalloped circle on a slight up angle, making sure not to get any ink on the front of the card. Open the card. Push the lid of the gray granite ink and the ink pad together to get some of the ink on the lid. Using the smallest water painter, add a little water to the ink in the lid, pick it up with the water painter, and water paint the zebra. Stamp the shadow stamp below the zebra in gray granite. Again using ink from the gray granite lid and the water painter, swipe some gray granite ink lightly on a scrap of soft sea foam cardstock. When dry, stamp the sentiment in tuxedo black Momento. Cut the sentiment out with the smallest of the stitched rectangles dies. Wrap linen thread around the soft sea foam rectangle, and attach to the bottom of the card with Stampin' dimensionals.
That's it! Super fun card. If you try it please tag me. Have fun!
