Clarity Stamp Card
To make this card I used:
- Distress Ink pad(weathered wood)
- Distress Ink pad(tumbled glass)
- Distress Ink pad (Mowed Lawn)
- Tim Holtz Applicator tool and foam pad
- White pigment ink pad
- Emerald Green Archival Ink Pad
- Clarity Forest Ridge stamp
- Clarity Maple Autumn leaf set
- Britannia Die - Ivy
- Pearlescent Green Card
- X-cut Scalloped oval die
- Liquid Pearls (white opal)
- Copy paper
- Hunkydory white Ink-Me Card
- C5 card
- Double Sided tape and pads
1) Cut a piece of ink-me card 1cm smaller in height and width than the card front.
2) Stamp the background using the white ink pad using the maple leaf stamp.
3) Use the a blend of the 2 blue distress inks to colour the background, give the card a few minutes to dry and buff off the ink from the white leaves to allow them to show through.
1) Cut out a large scalloped oval from the white ink-me card.
2) Stamp the forest ridge using the green archival ink pad about a third from the bottom of the oval.
3) Apply some the weathered wood distress ink with the blending tool at top of the oval and about halfway down to create a sky, leave areas of white to create a more realistic scene.
4) Add hills using the mowed lawn distress ink. To do this rip some copy paper and use this to mask the sky so you only add the green ink on the bottom part.
Mat and Layer
Use whatever adhesive you prefer, I used double side tape on the back of the leaf background and positioned it leaving a 5mm border. I added 2mm double sided pads on the back of the oval die and 1mm pads on the back of the ivy dies.
1) Use the ivy die to cut 4 sprigs using the green pearlescent card, arrange and stick down as desired
2) Use some liquid pearls and randomly dot to create a snow effect
