I am thinking of everyone during these difficult and unprecedented times. Especially those dealing with chronic anxiety. I am trying to continue to craft when I can as well as meditate before bed to try to calm my mind. For those of you who have Spotify I highly recommend listening to Chel Hamilton who you can find at meditationminis.com. She recently released a longer sleep meditation that I find very helpful. Now onto the card…
Today I am sharing a birthday card featuring the Hooray Hamsters stamp set and coordinating dies from Time For Tea Designs, as well as the new Ever Decreasing Circles stencil. In addition to this I used several stamp sets, I just love mixing and matching sets whenever I can.
To create the background, I die cut some white card stock using the Hooray A6 Panel Die, blended on some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink with my Beautiful Blender Brush and then used the Ever Decreasing Circles stencil to add the darker blue circles over the top of this. I then applied some translucent embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi, once this was dry, I added some white splatters using my Picket Fence Distress Paint.
I created the grass area by cutting out some white card stock using the Hooray A6 Panel Die, blended on some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink with my Blender Brush. I added some water droplets and white splatters and then die cut the section using Stitched Hillside Borders die set from Lawn Fawn. I attached the grass to the dotted sky background using liquid glue.
For the scene, I stamped and coloured critters and other elements from three stamp sets: Hooray Hamsters, Hip Hop Horray (worm) and Beauty Sleep (clouds). I adhered the critters and elements to the card using liquid glue.
