I have 2 projects to share today, I mix matched our newest 3rd Anniversary Release products and previously released products.
Here’s my 1st project, using our new City Buildings Cling Background Stamp, Love And a Cat stamp set, and Mini Heart Print Cling Background Stamp!
I started of stamping our new City Buildings Cling Background stamp on a Bristol Smooth Cardstock in Versamark ink. I heat embossed the panel in white and ink blended our Soft Garnet Dye and Rose Quartz Dye Couture Inks. Then I cut a little opening on the bottom right corner using the 3rd largest die from our Large Double Stitched Circle Dies and set it aside. Next, I stamped the Mini Heart Print Cling Background Stamp on a smooth white cardstock and heat embossed in silver to create the background panel.
I stamped one of the kitty image from our Love and a Cat stamp set in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink, colored it with Copic markers, and fussy cut it out. Colors I used are C3, C2, C1, C00, and R20. I also stamped the sentiment from the same set on a black cardstock, heat embossed in white, and cut it to a little banner. Next, I assembled all the elements on to a top folding A2 white card base and finished the card off by adding some Clear Rhinestones and sequins from our new Pink Blossoms Couture Mix.
Moving on to my 2nd project! For this project, I used our new Smooched Stamp set and the Mini Heart Print Cling stamp.
I started off by stamping the biggest lips image from our new Smooched stamp set on white cardstock in our Red Sangria Hybrid ink and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the Mini Heart Print Cling stamp on a black cardstock and heat embossed in white. I also vertically stamped the sentiment (which I think it’s hilarious! lol!) on a smooth white cardstock in our Noir Dye ink. I put those 2 panels together, worked out to the proportion I was happy with, and die cut it out with our biggest layer from our Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
I adhered the panels on a A2 sized black card base and dressed up the card with Clear Rhinestones, Glass Slippers Sequins, and sequins from our new Pink Blossoms Couture Mix.
Hope you enjoyed today’s projects and thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
