Here is another example I did using the new set called "Baby It's Cold Outside."
I wanted to show you that you can use part of the main stamp simply by using a black marker to ink up only the part you want. I chose to do a snowman card so I inked only the snowman, and then went back to add the detail that was left off. I created this little scene and here is how:
I used my cuttlebug snowflakes folder to emboss white cardstock. I then brayered blue sky (SU!) over the embossed image. I inked the snowman using a black marker and stamped on white cardstock and then filled in the parts that were cut off by the original image. I sketched the ground and a few trees and then cut around the snowman and trees. I cut a thin strip of cardstock in blue sky. (*Note, the scene piece is larger in width than the background piece--this will allow the scene to pop out!)
Then I applied tape to the middle of the strip of paper:
The blue strip was attached to the back of the scene as shown:
Then I colored the scene and added the stamped hat and gloves from the set. I added my own scarf. I also cut two thin strips of cardstock for the arms.
Next, I applied tape to the flaps of the blue strip (to wrap around the cuttlebugged background piece.) I also used two dimensionals just because I didn't want this popped out too much. If you omit this step, the scene will pop out in a nice rounded arch.
