Choo Choo!

Hi there

Just a quick post this afternoon to share a card I made last week for a little boy's first birthday.

I cut a square panel of white cardstock and a slightly larger square of grey textured cardstock.  On the white panel I stamped the track, this was stamped three times with a stamp that creates a continues image.  The train, carriages and number 1 were stamped next and die cut with their co-ordinating dies.  I temporarily placed these where I wanted them to go so I could stamp the sentiments, steam and carriage connectors.  The stamped panel was then mounted on the grey before the train elements were then popped up on 3D foam.  This was then mounted directly onto a larger square card base.  For some reason the grey ink looks quite pale here but it was darker in real life.

Materials used:

  • Stamps and Dies: Clearly Besotted - Full Steam Ahead
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Versa Color - Indigo, Cardinal, Green and Sky Gray
  • Cardstock: Papermania - Premium Textured Cardstock; white from stash

Challenge entries:

Crazy 4 Challenges - Challenge #261 - Number It
The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge #91 - Anything Goes
CAS on Sunday - Challenge #47 - Children's Card

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.  I've not had a chance to do any crafting this weekend, I've just spent the last few hours putting my stash back where it belongs after my guest designer gauntlet last week.  I couldn't cope with the mess so had a really good tidy up so I can start doubt it will be in a mess again after the next card!
