Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. I’ve just come back from a few days at my mom’s. I love to visit and I always create ahead so that I have plenty of things to share with you while I’m gone. But, that can affect my creativity when I return. Do you ever have a slump in your MOJO? Here’s what I did this morning that may help you. I pulled out a stamp set with the plan to create a really simple card. The reason I go for simple is that I find just the act of creating…makes me more creative! For today’s card, I used Animal Outing with Swirly Frames. They are two of the new stamp sets in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. You can request a catalog HERE
Animal Outing with Swirly Frames
So, here’s my clean and simple card.
For the base, I used Thick Whisper White.
Then, I matted my Whisper White focal layer with a piece of Bermuda Bay.
The Bermuda Bay layer is just large enough to leave a narrow band of color.
The Animal Outing stamp set (146600) is perfect for coloring.
But, I wasn’t feeling it this morning.
So, I used my Stamparatus.
First, I colored the bird with my Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker and stamped.
After cleaning the bird, I masked it off.
Then, I inked the rhino in Basic Gray and stamped on the Whisper White.
Next, I inked up the rhino again and stamped on Smoky Slate.
He was easy to fussy cut!
I didn’t worry about the ground/shadow or his tail
since they were on the Whisper White layer.
I love the slightly punny sentiment.
You know — rhinos are big….
After stamping the sentiment from Animal Outing in Bermuda Bay,
I used one of the Swirly Frames (146519) in Pool Party.
To finish the outside, I colored some of the White Perfect Accents (retiring)
with my Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blends.
To finish the inside, I used my Stamparatus again.
It was super easy to ink the bird with my marker and get perfect placement!
