It’s Your Day!

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | It’s Your Day

Today I have a fun card to share with you using my favourite image from the Boo To You stamp set (in the 2019 Holiday Catalogue). I never really imagined a werewolf could be cute until I saw this one and I think he’s perfect for much more than just Halloween celebrations.

I’m playing along with this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge (CTS#339) for the layout of my card. I’d already coloured my werewolf to use on another project, but when I saw this week’s sketch I just knew I had to use this lovable scamp for this instead 🙂

I kept the background of my card quite simple to let my focal image really shine and have a Basic Black card base layered with Sahara Sand and then a layer of Woven Threads DSP that I die cut with a die from my stash. This added a lovely stitched edge around this layer and is a subtle detail that adds a little more interest to my background without competing with the main image.

My werewolf was stamped in Momento Black ink  onto Whisper White cardstock and coloured with Stampin’ Blends Markers (the colours will be in the Supply List). I added a few highlights with a Gelly Roll 10 pen (non SU) and then fussy cut him out with my Paper Snips. I went over the cut edges with my Basic Black Marker to cover up the white edges and disguise any uneven trimming.

The background is a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock die cut with the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays on one side and popped my werewolf up with the *new* Black Dimensionals on the other. I added a few sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment (retired) to look like confetti and add a little sparkle & shine to my simple card.

I finished the inside with another piece of Sahara Sand die cut with the same rectangle, but unfortunately didn’t remove enough tacky from the tape I used to keep it in place and my cardstock tore a little when I removed it 😦 I didn’t want to waste this piece however and after a little searching found a die in the Stitched Labels Framelits which  covered it up nicely, problem solved 😉

I stamped another sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays with my Stamparatus and purposely chose one that could be for something other than a birthday. This makes my card a little more versatile and I could use it for a graduation, promotion, retirement etc… as well as a birthday card.

I really like this little guy with his big grin & arms in the air, it looks as though he’s throwing something or waving or coming in for a hug. I think he would be suitable for so many different cards and great for guys, as he’s not too cutesy. I’ll have to have a play with the monster & zombie next and see what different ideas I can use them for 🙂

Cheers,
Karen
