First of all, if I ever hiked anywhere at anytime, I don’t remember it. So I don’t have any stamps of boots and I only have cowgirl boots in a die. But I did have this stamp that I have always loved. It’s this little girl in high heels. I don’t know who made this set of stamps, but if anyone does, I’d love to know. She reminded me of my oldest daughter when she was a child. She ran away from home one day with a peanut butter sandwich in a bag. After about 15 or 20 min. I went outside and saw her sitting at the corner eating her sandwich. So I went to the corner and sat down on the curb next to her and said “So is this as far as your going so you set up camp?” “Yes,” she said, “because I’m not allowed to cross the street!”
Step 1: I made this card by first stamping her with my Misti. Then I colored her with Copic Markers, trying to make her clothes look as if they had been worn and washed many times as my little girl certainly had her favorites and was also a “girly” girl! I stamped and colored on a pc. of white cardstock that measures 4.75″ x 6.5″.
Step 2: Using the die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs called: 1084 – CountryScapes – New England Stone Wall & Gate
First cut a white pc. of cardstock in a 6 x 2″ strip and adhere it to a 2″ wide double sided adhesive. Place the die from the above set that cuts the stones for the wall. Punch out all the stone pcs. it cuts and use what’s left for a stencil to make the path.
Be careful to mask the stamped image with little Post It’s as you are stenciling.
Next using Elizabeth Craft Designs: S016 – Earth & Sky Stencil
Stencil the ground and grass to cover the rest of the card as shown, using PanPastels.
I created the sentiment on my computer and cut it out with Sizzix Nested Rectangles.
Next cut a rectangle from cardstock that coordinates with how you colored the scene that measures 5 x 6.75″. Adhere the stamped top layer to this mat and then adhere both to a base card that measures 5.25 x 7″ when folded.
I hope you will join this weeks challenge. After the Holiday, sitting down in the craft room might be just what you need!
