Last week I created a video for the Stipple Basic Tutorial. I received my January KOM from Unity right before I left for the CHA and hadn’t had a chance to play with it until then. I LOVE these cute mushrooms that came in it. They are just darling.


I stamped the image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah White cardstock and cut it out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. The image was colored with Copic Markers (stems: Y23, Y26, Y28  mushroom under top: YR04, YR07, YR18  Grass: YG07, YG17  Snail: R01, R02, R05). The top of the mushrooms were stamped on Bo Bunny paper and cut out. The edges were sponged with Aged Mahogany Distress ink and the mushroom tops were adhered to the over the main image. Fruit Punch Stickles was added over the orange dots on the mushroom dots, Christmas Red Stickles over the hearts. The snail body was covered in Stickles Stardust. The rest of the mushroom top and snail were covered in Glossy Accents.

The image was stamped again on Eclipse Tape, cut out and placed over the main image as a mask. Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress ink were stippled over the image while the Oval Nestabilities die was still placed over the cardstock. The image was then adhered to a slightly bigger black scallop oval.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Basic Black cardstock folded in half.  The next layer is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The edges were stippled with Broken China Distress ink. The strip on the left hand side measures 2 1/8″ x 5″ and is the same paper that the mushroom tops were cut from. It was sanded and stitched to the stippled layer.

The 3 1/8″ x 3 3/4″ piece of paper in the center is from the Bo Bunny Love Bandit collection. The corners were punched with a corner rounder, the edges were sanded before it was stitched to a slightly larger piece of Black cardstock.

A Basic Grey button was tied to a Prima Daisy Doodle with waxed linen with a organdy bow behind it. It was adhered to the main image with a glue dot. Five Bo Bunny Rhinestones finish off the top right of the card.

The sentiment is also from Unity’s January KOM. It was stamped on Neenah Cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and cut out with Spellbinders Double Ended Tags. While the die template was still on the paper, I stippled the cardstock first with Scattered Straw, then with Dried Marigold Distress ink.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
