This is the cutest line of stamp & die sets that Art Impressions has out right now - Critter Cubbies! I have a couple of little nephews in my family to make cards for, so I pulled out 5226 - Bus Cubbies to make a card to accompany a little gift I was sending:
This was so fun & easy to do! I started by keeping the dies all together and die cutting the pieces out multiple times. I put the negative die cut into my Misti, and lined up all the stamps in each space. Then I filled in the negative with all my cut pieces, and was able to stamp enough for 3 cards quickly. All of the pieces were coloured with Copic markers.
After colouring, I was able to adhere the animals, having them peek out different windows, and I adhered the bus to my card base with 3D foam adhesive. I made my own cloud stencil, and ink blended 4 different inks to create my sky, and added some green to the bottom of the card to suggest grass. A strip of grey cardstock created my road, and I added some motion lines behind the bus. The best part, is that you can open up the bus doors... and see the little koala waving at you :o)
