InkyStamper: Find My Happy Place Card

Out of all the Ralph and Rosie series stamps, Paper Airplane Stamp and Die set speaks to me the most. Before the pandemic, I traveled a lot. So this set would be perfect to document my travels and make cards for other traveling friends. Don't you love this card?

**I receive products from InkyStamper and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use.**

Happy Place Card Panels

Cut the map paper to 3.75 x 5-inches, and 4 x 5.25-inches for the light khaki cardstock. Ink both papers' edges with blue ink to tie into the map colors.

Next, adhere the panels together. The map paper was adhered with E-Z Runner Grand Ultra Strong to the khaki cardstock. Then the layered panel was lifted and secured to the Kraft A2 (4.25 x 5.5-inches) Size card base with Crafty Foam Tape.

Stamping Ralph

Stamp Ralph on his paper airplane onto white cardstock. I like to stamp two or three of the image and keep the extras in the packaging for future use. I also stamped two small paper airplanes with blue ink. Cut both with their coordinating die.

On Kraft cardstock, I stamped and die-cut Ralph on his paper airplane. Then I hand cut Ralph out of the image and adhered the kraft airplane to the white die cut. Color Ralph with watercolor pencils.

For the sentiment, I wanted to use both blue and black ink so I stamped in blue first. Then I purposely double stamp with the black ink. Again, I wanted to tie in the blue from the map pattern. I bookend the paper airplane die cuts on each side.

I hope you enjoyed my Find My Happy Place Card tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
