Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!
Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using a combination of Dreamerland Crafts stamps. A Special Message For You – D16001 was used for the boy image and sentiment, Mailbox & Wall – Mix & Match Collection – M18301 and Window & Gate – Mix & Match Collection – M18302 were used to create the background. I just love how these stamps came together to help me to create this scene.
To make this card I used a base card of 6″ x 6″. I die cut X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and dies from Creative Expression Craft Dies by Sue Wilson – Noble Dies – Double Pierced Squares – Set B. I used the square die that was about 5.75″ x 5.75″.
Next, I created a mask of each of the stamps I was going to use to create the scene. The boy was stamped first and then I placed the mask over top of him. Next was the gate, then the brick wall and the foliage. I added the masks after stamping each piece. Lastly, I stamped the 2 windows. All masking was removed at this point.
To create the main building brick wall, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie Stencil – Brick Wall. Using my magentic mat, small magnets were used to hold the stencil down over the image. Then Copic markers were used to create the texture of the brick. Once all of the brick was done, C4 and C2 were used to fill in the spaces in between. I drew in the sidewalk using a combination of C0 – C5 markers.
After all of the main colouring was done, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Blueprint Sketch was used to stamp the sentiment. Then, because I was using my MISTI, it was easy to then re-ink the sentiment with Versamark ink and then emboss it with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to heat up the embossing powder.
