Hello and thanks for stopping by today! When stamping an image, do you sometimes feel more of a connection with a stamp set? I really like bird stamps, as you know, and put a bit more of myself into the project when working on those cards. Peaceful Place is another such stamp set, I especially like the sentiments. Let’s take a look at a Peaceful Place support card.

Peaceful Place stamp set
Isn’t this a beauty?!? The large image is sized to fir nicely as a focal point of a standard notecard. The sentiments are really the showstopper here for me. And who can resist a squirrel? Peaceful Place stamp set is available today in my online store.
I started by placing the large stamp in my Stamparatus. Since this is a scene, I wanted to create a look of depth but not add coloring to the image after it’s stamped. A more neutral, tone on tone look is what I imagined cresting. To get a bit of dimension, I first stamped the image with Crumb Cake ink, stamped it to the paper and then dabbed in Gray Granite ink into the areas of the stamp that appear to be further from the front image. Making these images, like the smaller trees, appear darker.
The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede and wrapped around the front panel, secured on the back. A little fussy cut squirrel and leaves help to enhance the sentiment. I loved making this card and feel like the recipient will like it very much.
