One of my lovely team mates moved house earlier this month and this is the card I made for her using the oh so versatile In The City stamp set.
I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5¼” by 3½” and stamped a variety of the sweet little houses just below the mid line of the panel using Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I interspersed the houses with a few trees and added a cobbled road in front of the houses using Crumb Cake ink.
I then took the panel to the Big Shot and cut a circle using one of the Layering Circle dies from the middle of the stamped scene. Using the infill stamp for each house I coloured only the parts in the die cut circle, this is called the spotlight technique, using Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder. The roof and doors were stamped with Crumb Cake ink and Smoky Slate ink. I stamped an extra tree on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut the top part after stamping it using Pear Pizzazz ink. I added the top of the tree using a Stampin’ Dimensional.
I die cut a slightly larger circle using the Layering Circle dies from the centre of a layer of Soft Sky cardstock 5⅜” by 3⅝” then used this layer to back the large stamped Whisper White panel using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. This whole panel was then added to a Pear Pizzazz card base again using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.
I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the die cut circle piece and laid it into the die cut hole. Love the look of this technique and it works so well with this stamp set.
