Hey Sweets! It’s Ashlea here and I am beyond excited to share one of my favorite-ever stamp sets with you! It’s one of the newest releases from Sweet Stamp Shop and it’s called “Watch Television”. While it’s not holiday themed stamp set, it’s definitely something I think we all can agree is worth celebrating… Binge-watching!
Create a Storyline
For this card, I decided to use the stamp image of the couch with the girls eating popcorn. I then also used the rear of the TV to give the illusion that the girls were watching the TV. I really love the way this set is designed so that you can use the images together to create a story like this, separately or on their own.
Blend Color with Markers on to Card Stock
Next, I started with a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of 110lb card stock. To give the “glow” of the TV, I first decided where the TV would go and then blended Limoncello ink by Catherine Pooler which is a very light yet vibrant yellow. I blended from where the TV would be placed and diagonally up to the left in more of a sweeping motion. To drive home the feel of streams on light, I used Copic markers in Y15 and BG10 in the same sweeping motion as before.
Create a Dimension with Foam Tape
After having my design for the scene planned and underway, I started adhering my cut out and colored images to the card front. I glued the couch so that when I used foam tape with the TV it would give lots of dimension and interest to the scene.
Ink Stamp Cute Sentiments
Finally, for the sentiment I used the “Spoiler Alert” stamp (how COOL is the font for this, by the way?!) I lined it up in my MISTI to make sure it was straight and inked it up in Versafine Onyx Black ink. To accompany the sentiment, I used “you’re amazing” underneath Spoiler Alert. To finalize this (and make it an actual card) I adhered it to an A2 sized card base.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning a bit about how I created the scene for this card using the new Watch Television stamp set. The images here create so many DIY possibilities and I can’t wait to see what you create with yours! Thank you, again, for stopping by! I’ll see you very soon!
