I Brake for Mama ...

Hello IBFS fans !!
It's Crystal here and today I have a Mother's Day card using Enoa Mae and Kids , she is from the Humorous Senior line and you all know how I love love love that line ....

Today I wanted to show how you can get more looks out of your stamps by cutting the stamped image apart and highlighting one of the images to be the main focal point , this is a Mother's day card so I wanted Mom to stand out from the kids , take a look at my card and then I will walk you thru how I did it .

ok here is how I made my card , I stamped the imaged in a news print designer paper 6x6 size ( this kind if paper has smaller print size made for card makers )
I then copic colored the kids and add line colors to the mom , this helps the image blend seamlessly when I pop her up over the news print image

I stamped the image again on white card stock and colored only mom and then fussy cut her out right on the black stamped line and then used glue dots to pop her up over the image of her stamped on news print

I added a banner with my sentiment cut from vinyl and a few of my DIY enamel dots I distressed the layer edges of my card and inked then up with TH walnut stain

you can see by the side angle that it is colored under the popped up image but we did not fully color and no one will ever know...

inside I stamp the image im matching ink to my card so its more like a watermark look and I can still write over the image to write a special message to mom

I did not have a die cut to fit the area I need it to fit , so what I did was use my Silhouette and cut vinyl to fit the area I need it to fit , it looks like its embossed but its really just vinyl , give it a try it will open a hole new world .

well I open this post has inspired you to look at your stamps in a whole new way , turn those images into a 2D look , leave me a commit if you liked my card today and if this is something you would like to try .
