For today’s card, I wanted the focus to be on the champion hamster. I love how his arms are raised in victory. I stamped him out using the Blackout Hybrid Ink. I love how crisp this ink is and I can use it with both watercolors and alcohol markers. (P.S. They don’t leave a black stain on your stamps if you clean them right after, which I know most people don’t mind, but it personally irks me). This is such a cute little hamster and it’s so easy to color him up.
I also use the coordinating Knockout Nibbles dies to help cut this out. The image is also pretty easy to fussy cut as well but for this card, I needed the white outline to allow this image to pop off my darker background.
I love the little embellishments in the set and focused on the small sunburst. I wanted to create a ring of these sunbursts so I decided to use a 4 inch square card panel. Using the Juicy Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink, I stamped a first ring of the sunbursts and then heat embossed using gold embossing powder. Then I decided to stamp the interior of the ring and used a satin white embossing powder.
My card is basically complete once I put everything together. I chose the sentiment “You’re A Champ”, stamping the words out using the Blackout Hybrid Ink on white cardstock and trimmed it down. For my card panel, I used a I added the cute little hamster right in the middle.
I’m using a 4.25 x 4.25 square card base for this card. Since my background panel is 4 x 4, it leaves a nice white border around the entire card and really ties in the die cut image along with the sentiment.
I hope you’ve been enjoying this project using the new stamp and die set along with use of the popular inks from Ink On 3. I hope you get inspired to create!
