I am so excited to share this "classy" card I made today using Keepin' It Classy and Classy & Fabulous. These sets are just AWESOME!!! The artwork that Emma's brother, Mark Villar, designed is just too cute, and Emma's sentiments pair with it beautifully!
Driving home from school yesterday, I had an idea of how to get some patterns onto these stamps, and I was so happy to see that it worked! I began by stamping just the girl and the dog with black ink onto kraft cardstock. I then masked everything I had stamped except for the pants, using some post-it notes.
Next, I took the burlap pattern from My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit and inked it up with Versamark ink.
To get the burlap pattern onto the pants, I pressed the pants part of the stamp onto the inked up burlap stamp. I didn't need to worry about it getting on the shoes or arms, since I had protected those areas on my kraft paper with the post-it notes. I then stamped the girl right on top of the black image I had already created on the kraft paper. I removed the post-its, and I was left with the burlap pattern in Versmark ink on the pants. After quickly stamping the purse and leash with Versamark ink, I added white embossing powder and heat embossed the whole thing.
Some little rhinestones were used for the belt and collar. I just love the "Keepin' it Classy" sentiment! The fonts are just perfect! My kraft cardstock is a 3 1/2" square. It is layered on a 3 5/8" piece of aqua cardstock, which is layered on a 4" square that I printed using my Imagine Black & White cartridge. The aqua card base is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4".
