An extra Stuffy

My card for yesterday's Bellariffic Friday featured Stuffy Stuffie and I made a second card slightly different as I had all the 'ingredients' still out on my desk.  This is one of my stamping goals for this year - to try and make two of each card.  It shouldn't take too much extra time and I'll have double the cards!

I stamped the image (Stuffy Stuffie) with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured him with copics adding some final shading with gamsol and pencil crayons.  He is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle die.  The paper is Lilybeedesign "Head Over Heels" with some Cherry Cobbler and a Basic Gray card base.  I added some glossy accents to the thermometer.  

This is where the "stamp surgery" made it so easy to stamp part of the sentiment on the front and the rest inside without the fuss of masking.  As I mentioned in yesterday's post, it doesn't hurt the stamp at all and I can still stamp the entire sentiment if I want to.

On the inside I could stamp the rest of the sentiment and then stamp the image again with a lighter gray ink on top.  

Hope you enjoyed two days of Stuffies!

I am enjoying your 2 days of Stuffies - he is just so adorable. Good for you for making a second card with carrying on with the same ingredients. At this rate you will have quite a selection of cards. I know I always think I should do that but never do. Love your idea with the 'stamp surgery', a great way to get more use out of your sentiments!

Brilliant making a 2 card. I should try that and love how you showed the sentiment surgery. Another gorgeous stuffie
