Hello friends! This is Yana and I hope you are having a fabulous week!
For my today’s post I pulled out one for the WPlus9 stamp set I haven’t yet had the chance to use - Get Well Gang. The cute animal images and messages included are absolutely darling and work oh so well for a card you want to give to a sick friend to cheer him or her up.
I started working on this project by stamping and die-cutting several images from the Get Well Gang set as well as a banner shape from a holiday Be Merry set. I knew I wanted to house a part of my sentiment on a banner and the one from the Be Merry stamp set ended up being a perfect fit for the job. Before stamping “Get Well Wishes” I curved my stamp slightly when I attached it onto a clear block to follow the curve of the banner.
I used alcohol markers, Copics, and did some rather quick coloring using yellows, oranges and warm greys (I’m listing specific colors I used at the end of this post). Keep in mind you can use other coloring mediums and other colors, too. I also stamped additional “Sending Love and Hugs For a Speedy Recovery” sentiment directly onto a Dove Grey cardstock panel cut to about 3 ¾ x 5”.
To add a bit to the background of my card I also stamped another kitty image in Fairy Dust ink (which is a very pale grey) onto the front of my A2 top folding card base. The image ended up being almost invisible and is rather hard to see in my photos, but it adds a nice interest to the card base.
I foam mounted my stamped and die cut images onto a Dove Grey panel and adhered it onto my card base. Lastly, I added several enamel dots in yellow, orange and light grey to compliment the colors I used for my coloring.
I hope I won't have to mail this card to a friend (I think we can all agree being sick is absolutely no fun), but if I will need a cheer up card for a friend - I will have one ready on hand.
Have fun stamping!
