Christmas in July?! Only a little bit, I promise! Oh before we get to the project let me explain… you see today’s project is important for two reasons.
This is Bandit! He’s a one year old Dachshund (rescued, of course!) and he’s been here two days. Anyhow inspired by him I looked around and I knew I just had to make a card with my Dachshund stamp – even if it was holiday themed! Always good to have a few things done ahead! Anyhow I used my ScanNCut to quickly cut around it, with a .08 outline (love that I can customize it!)
disclaimer – I am a paid consultant for Brother, however all ideas and opinions are my own. I truly love the ScanNCut!
Another detail that is noteworthy – I used watercolors + sparkle pens to color this image. Without a brace. For the first time! I have a LONG recovery road still ahead, but it is exciting that I was able to color this stamped image without pain. What could make it more fun?
I realized that the “garbage” left behind after making ScanNCut stamps a while back is in fact really great for a paste stencil. True it’s a little thick I wouldn’t recommend it as a material to make stencils necessarily, but if you’ve made anything from a cut from paper to silicone stamp material like I had then definitely try it!
Here’s a link to YouTube and my video tutorial.
I love how this turned out, and how it combined a few different ways to put my ScanNCut to use while also being inspired by our new pup and testing my wrist and exercising it a bit with coloring.
Here is my finished card – really love how it turned out and while I know its a bit early – I am a fan of crafting out of season as you are inspired to do so!
