Secret Stamp Club: Sage

This card features the new Secret Stamp Club stamp from The Greeting Farm. Her name is Sage, and the second I saw her, I just had to color her right away. She is adorable! She has a cute little skull on her bow, and is wearing a Gothic dress -which works perfect for Halloween.

After stamping Sage onto a piece of Copic marker paper, I colored her in with my Copics. There wasn't anything special about the coloring, other than adding some line-free blue to her eyes and having fun with her hair. After the coloring was done, I added lots of white dots to her outfit with a white gel pen.

I carefully cut around her and set her aside while I got the rest of the card ready. I created a standard A2 card base out of black cardstock, by cutting and folding it in half.

Since Sage had a cute-n-spooky vibe going, I decided to use Doodlebug's Ghouls & Goodies paper pad. I cut a stitched rectangle panel out of the owl paper using Mama Elephant's Femme Frames. Since both the background and Sage were dark, I decided to use a brighter pattern behind Sage to make her stand out a little better. I cut a pumpkins rectangle using the smaller rectangle in MFT's Blueprints 1 dies.

I adhered the owl paper straight to the base with my standard adhesive, then added the pumpkin rectangle and Sage using foam squares. As a last touch, I added 3 purple enamel dots.

  1. OOh, this is the first in the Secret Stamp Club that you *made* me sign up for. haha Just teasing! She's a darling! I'm not going to get mine until mid-November though so that's a bummer. I don't know what I like best about your card - the colouring of Sage is beyond perfection. Her skin colouring is amazing! As is her hair. The delightful patterned paper is owl so cute. haha Love it all!

    1. Yes, it's a bit of a bummer you won't get her until mid-November, but on the bright side, you'll get all 3 of them then and have lots and lots of fun playing.
      You'll thank me for my enabling ways. XD

    2. That's a very good point! :) Thank you! haha :)
