Back on Your Feet card


Today's card features a favorite stamp set, Back on Your Feet by Stampin' Up!®.  These images are perfect for coloring with Stampin' Blends.  You don't need to be an expert at using blends, and can keep it as simple or as fancy as you like.  

This card was inspired by Sketch 527 from Freshly Made Sketches.  Sometimes I already have a stamp set in mind that I want to use when I find a sketch.  Other times, like in this instance, I see a sketch first, then immediately know which stamp set I want to use with it.  The card unfolds from there.  

For the blue strip down the side, on the front and inside, I used a Blending Brush with Balmy Blue ink to add the color.  I recommend using something like washi tape to hold down the cardstock you are adding the color to, as well as the mask you are using to cover either side of the colored strip. 

The strip on the front is 1" wide, while the strip inside is only 1/4" wide.  I think I will add another 1/4" strip along the flap of the envelope before giving this one away. 

 Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I hope this card inspires you to create!
