So, trawling through my stamp sets looking for inspiration this morning – I need to make a get well card for a friend having surgery – my eye was caught by the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set. I bought this set on a whim as I have loved using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and the co-ordinating Cookie Cutter Builder punch and the punch goes with the Halloween set as well………what’s not to like. However, in the UK we are really not big on Halloween so this set has been sitting on the shelf gathering dust. But, the little mummy image wrapped in bandages seemed perfect for a get well card.
For the first card I used a Thick Whisper White card base and stamped the little mummy image from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set using Basic Black Archival ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I then took my Smoky Slate inkpad and an Aquapainter and added some shadows to the bandages, really simple but so effective, then I coloured the little face with a Blushing Bride marker pen.
I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink. I stamped the a cluster of small stars using a stamp from the same set using the same inkpad on the top right and bottom left of the panel and adhered the mummy image on top with Tombow liquid adhesive. Using the Project Life Corner Rounder I rounded the top left and bottom right corners and mounted this whole piece onto a panel of Island Indigo card stock. I added this panel to the card base over to the left side with Stampin Dimensionals and slid three thin scraps of card – Watermelon Wonder, Island Indigo and Garden Green -with banner ends underneath for some added interest. I loved how this card turned out.
For the 2nd card and stamped the mummy in Basic Black Archival in the bottom right hand corner of a piece of Whisper White cardstock and coloured it in the same way as the previous card. I added a little Smoky Slate to the bottom of the stamped image to ‘ground’ it. The sentiment is from the My Hero stamp set and is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink. Using the Cookie Cutter Builder punch and a scrap of Watermelon Wonder cardstock I punched out a tiny heart and added it to the image with a dab of Tombow liquid adhesive before mounting the whole panel onto the Tip Top Taupe card base. I really love all the white space on this card.
For the 3rd card I stamped, punched and coloured the image in exactly the same way as for the 1st card. I then stamped the umbrella image from the My Hero stamp set using Perfect Plum ink onto Whisper White cardstock and added the handle in Basic Black Archival ink. I stamped the handle again on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut the end with a pair of scissors before adhering it to the mummy’s hand and adding the mummy to the stamped panel with Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I mounted the stamped panel onto a layer of Perfect Plum cardstock before adding it to the Tip Top Taupe card base. As a final touch I added a little Smoky Slate ink with an Aquapainter so that he was dangling in mid-air. Loved this card also.
