guest designer: card process video

Hey guys, I am so excited to be the guest designer for Brittany H of HotRodsBoutique. She is one of the sweetest people in youtube land and has a wonderful Etsy shop. Make sure to visit her store for all the latest Avery Elle, Whimsy Stamps, hand made enamel dots and much more. How about a coupon code to get things started?

For my first of four projects I used this awesome stamp by Whimsy Stamps called Scandi Christmas. I am going to be totally honest and tell you that the majority of Whimsy Stamps are not my style. They are perfect for Copic colorers, and people with incredible artistic talent, again not me πŸ™‚ But, when I saw this beauty all my stampy wishes were answered. I have been wanting a ‘sweater’ stamp for so long and not only does this one come with already make lines that you can repeat stamp for an awesome background it comes with a bunch of component stamps that you can create your own pattern with. Truly the best of both worlds with this type of stamp set.

I used the cute little reindeer stamp as well as some of the other smaller ones to create this card:

To be certain your pattern is straight I sketch very faint pencil lines to keep my stamping on track. I used some white woodgrain paper for the base of the card but if you don’t have any you can use an embossing folder or background stamp to get the same texture.
