Guest Designer – Sherry Gibson

Today we have an awesome wood-land scene created by our talented guest designer, Sherry Gibson of Loose Stitches and Unraveled Threads. Don’t you just love the way she added a pop of color behind the wolf’s head?!

Sherry tells us how she created this cool card:

“Hello Everyone,
I am happy to be back again today as a guest designer for CropStop.

For my card…
I embossed a piece of light yellow Core’dinations Core Essentials Cardstock (from the Neutrals pack) using the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
Then I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (Tea Dye) on the embossed trees and on the sides of the paper.
Next I made the card base with white cardstock.
Then using the Prima Marketing Distressing Tool I went around the card, lightly on the fold edge. Then around the embossed paper.
I then applied Scor-Tape to the back of the embossed paper and attached it to the card.
Using my Sizzix BIGkick Machine, I die cut the wolf on brown/white cardstock using the Spellbinders Inspire ‘Howling’ Die.
Then using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors I cut the moon outline off of the white wolf.
I then glued the white moon outline onto the brown moon outline and painted it with yellow Crayola Watercolor Paint.
Next I applied Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to the back of the wolf and attached it to the card.
Then using the yellow Crayola Watercolor Paint I painted the card inside the moon outline.
I die cut the feathers from a brown paper bag using the¬†Spellbinders Shapeabilities ‘Feathers’ Die.
Next I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad (Tea Dye) on the feathers.
Then I cut a piece of the Darice Hemp Cord and tied it around the quills of the feathers and glued them onto the card.

I have enjoyed being a guest designer for CropStop. I hope that you have enjoyed my cards.”
