Hello gopher!!

June 15, 2016

Hi there!!

It's Yolanda here, from Scraping Time. Today I would like to share a new card with you!

It's a long time since I wanted to make something with "Gopher it!" clear stamps. This gopher is so much fun and I wanted him to be the main focus of my card.


I die cut a false stitched square on Neenah white paper and I stamped the "hello" sentiment from "Just sentiments" clearstamps set. It´s a bold stamp that looks gorgeous in any colour. I used Lawn Fawn ink this time.

Then, I did partial die cutting for making my window and I started working in the second part of the card.


I die cut again a square and with a pencil I traced a soft line to know where was my window. Then, I stamped the gopher and I coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers. Then, I put some glossy accent on its nose. I masked it and inked some clouds with Memento Blue Sky ink.
I put my two panels together but I wasn't so happy with the result since the window seemed to be so empty. That's why I put this twine following the curve of the die. I made the tiny bow and sticked it with a couple of micro glue dots. I added some enammels matching with the yellow tones.

Finally, I made my card base with a cream cardstock and I used a plaid decorated paper to give some colour to my finished card.

I hope you enjoyed the result and see you soon!!
