Today I'm sharing a new card showcasing some of the adorable images from the Neat & Tangled Lumberjack Love Stamp Set paired with one of my favorite background stamps, the Impression Obsession Pine Trees Background Stamp.
To create the pine trees background, I die cut two A2 sized rectangle from smooth white cardstock using a Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Die. From one of the rectangles I die cut a slightly rounded border using a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 Die. I masked off all four edges on the rectangle background using post it tape and then stamped the Impression Obsession Pine Trees Background Stamp over the background using Simon Says Stamp Olive Ink. I masked off three sides of the border and inked the landscape with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.
Once the ink was completely dry on the landscape I stamped a greeting and a small heart from the Neat & Tangled Lumberjack Love Stamp Set along the rounded edge of the border using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white and red embossing powders.
The girl, lumberjack boy, tree stump, bird, bear, and "timber" speech bubble from the Neat & Tangled Lumberjack Love Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers. The images were die cut with the coordinating Lumberjack Love Dies and adhered to the card as shown. Foam adhesive on the back of the speech bubble gives a bit of dimension and looks likes it's coming from the forest!
Finishing details make all the difference! Black glaze pen was added to the eyes and/or noses on the kids and critters. White glaze pen dots was added to the cheeks of the kids and bird.
I felt that the bottom two thirds of the card was so colorful and full that a little something needed added to the top of the card. I added stamped hearts from the Neat & Tangled Lumberjack Love Stamp Set and colored them in with red Copic Markers. They compliment the entire card without overpowering the design.
