Wood you be mine? - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome back Artisan Design Team blog hop followers!

Are we really at the end of January?! As you are reading this I am enjoying sunny Orlando Florida with Stampin' Up! at the annual Leadership Conference! I will be blogging and posting during my trip. To stay up to date with all of the Stampin' Up! fun you will have to check back here and follow me!! (Instagram, Twitter & Facebook links are just to your right on this screen).

Our January Artisan boxes included the Wood You Be Mine Stamp set. I could not let the month past with out doing a project with this set. I love love love it! I think it is fresh, new, cute, fun, playful ... you get the point. See for yourself:

I know you love this mountain man as much as I do! How could you not!? My husband came into my craft room when I was creating him and even he loved him!

Do you love the wood back ground? Here is the quick technique:
1. Ink the inside face of your Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Soft Suede Classic Ink. I simply rubbed the stamp pad directly on the folder. Hint: the "front" of the folder has the Stampin' Up! logo on it.

2.  Place your cardstock inside the folder and crank through your Big Shot Machine. I used Soft Suede Cardstock.

I colored him with Stampin' Blendabilities Markers. I learned a lesson when I was coloring the jeans. The Night of Navy Blenabilites needed a bit more blending of the three colors. As a result the ink bled a bit past the stamped image line as I was working with the color. Next time I would not color with the markers too close to stamped line. That way the marker can bleed up to the line rather than past it.
