Happy Saturday! It’s Beth with Day 2 of our Blog Hop with Art Impressions! Today I have a fun stamp that fits me! This Don’t Sweat It stamp looks a little like me… except I don’t have a green headband, but I am a runner.
This card was fun to make, and pretty easy too! I took color inspiration from my own closet – yes I have pink shoes (and purple too!) and, uh, ran with it.
I stamped her twice, colored in the top layer, then outlined the second layer like this –
Then to give her dimension, I layered the images using 3D Foam Squares White Small, and in thinner spots you can see that I cut the squares in half.
Then I masked part of the saying to make it fit onto the die cut. I die cut 2 background layers and made a shaped card for them, and adhered with my E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips.
Oh, and I also added a race bib (just fussy cut it until it fit), because a girl has to have a goal, right?
So, now for the Blog Hop details:

I love these stamps. they reflect me (except I don’t run) so well – body-shape-wise.
thanks for a great idea on popping a colored design.

I think my cousin would love this card. She runs half or full marathons every weekend. Just tuned 50 but not ready to hang up her sneakers.
