The Color Layering Lion stamp set I used to create this card came out last month as an add-on to June 2017 kit; while the kit sold out way too fast, the add-ons are usually available for a long time so even if you didn’t get a chance to order the kit you can still get this set if you like it; I think it’s a good one for masculine and encouragement cards.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this project by stamping the lion first. I used Soft Vanilla, Butter Bar, Caramel and Cup of Joe ink colors for my stamping. The image was rather easy to align and I didn’t have any troubles stamping it.

If you ever have trouble aligning color layering images like this one or similar – try stamping the top most darkest layer first. I always find that to be helpful.

To create a background for this card I heat embossed Tribal Stripes background in white embossing powder onto kraft cardstock, trimmed it to 4 x 5 1/4″ and foam mounted onto an A2 top folding card base. Next, I die-cut the stamped lion and foam mounted it onto the card.

I also stamped a little bow, cut it out and adhered onto the card. I used Soft Brown and Cup Of Joe colors for stamping.

Lastly, I added “You Rule” white heat embossed sentiment and embellished my card using several black enamel dots from my stash.

    1. Classy lion, Yana. It’s a great “guy” card to use with a variety of sentiments. The sweet peas are delightful. Your idea of using small stamps to create background designs is a great idea. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Yana ~ This particular HA set is so very versatile and that lion is absolutely gorgeous! Love how the card background and your backdrop match so nicely too!! LOL ~HUGS~
