Details, details at StampNation


Today I'm teaching a tutorial over at StampNation and hope you'll join us!  We'll be talking about certain details that finish a card regardless of how many embellishments there are, if there are any at all.

I had a good time making this card.  I used the wonderful papers, glazes and embellishments sent by the folks over at Tattered Angels for the current challenge going on at StampNation which has been co-sponsored by Tattered Angels (see here for details).  Now for a few close ups...

I sprayed one of the cute sentiments with alcohol ink sprays which I made with two of their Glimmer Glazes, Desert Sun and Sangria.  They made a nice orange and I liked the drips so much that I let them dry that way.  The Tattered Angels mistable and paintable papers take the sprays beautifully, much better than regular card stock or designer paper.

I stamped and colored the pumpkin, then cut it out and coated it with Glossy Accents for shine.  Underneath the black triple bow is some of the orange rope yarn from Tattered Angels which I pulled apart to give a broom-like texture.

Here's the cute little orange clothespin from TA that I dry brushed with a little gesso and then topped with some orange glitter.  Boo!

A little stitching and my card is finished.  

I've left the inside blank for someone's personal note as I will be putting this up for sale in my Etsy shop.  

Thank you for joining me and I do hope you'll pop on over to StampNation to join the fun and check out what the other designers have created for you!

Shea, your card is amazing. All the little details you've added are great eye candy. Your use of the yarn is brilliant! I saw it on StampNation and wondered what you had used. Every time I look at your card I see something new to love. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.
