Mini Stamps Blog Blitz Begins - No Truffle
by Jeanne Jachna
You picked a great day for a visit! We're starting another blog blitz ! That's right! This week we'll be showing you the newest STAMPS and coordinating die sets from Poppystamps! And yes! There is a prize on every single post starting with this one! Today I'm showing the No Truffle At All set! This stamp set features .. you guessed it.. mushrooms. There's lots of fun accessories to build a scene including flowers, grass and a cute little snail! I had to laugh at those eyes! There's even several punny sentiments to choose from that will have you smiling too!
I created the background for this card by using the Stitched Landscapes die as a mask. I inked in grass with distress ink, and then flipped the mask over and inked in the sky. Next I die cut a few Fluffy Clouds, stamped some grass and the sentiment.
The coordinating die set has a die cut for each of the images in the set. I stamped the images with Memento Ink, colored them with Copics and then die cut them. Some of the images I adhered directly to the card base, for others I used adhesive foam tape to give a little dimension.
The finishing touch was a sprinkle of butterflies.
I wanted to create a scene that was completely flat - to show that you can make a fun scene even if you don't want to invest in the coordinating die cuts. This was stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics.
