Sneak Peek Day 5 featuring Value of Joy stamp set



Welcome to Day 5 of our Sneak Peek week! Today we are featuring the Value of Joy stamp set- another set designed by fellow DT member, Jami Bova. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch as my card layout.

I had read in one of Jami's earlier blog submissions this week that she designed her stamp images with paper piecing in mind. So for the dog in the butterfly bush image, I paper pieced it. I first colored the butterfly bush with Stampin' Up markers and stamped it. Then on a separate sheet I stamped the full image in black and cut out the dog and butterfly. For the dog, I used Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and a pink Stampin' Up marker for his bandanna. For the butterfly I used a black Prismacolor pencil and the same pink Stampin' Up marker. Then I attached the dog and butterfly onto the white piece that has the butterfly bush on it. The sentiment was colored with Stampin' Up markers too.

Paper(s): white and black cardstock, purple pattern (not sure), green butterflies from SEI
Ink(s): Stampin' Up markers, VersaMagic black ink
Other: May Arts Ribbon from 2 Red Bananas
