Hi Stampers, Day two of my 14 Day All About Love Challenge……and this one is for my Ian….I call it Honey I Love You, created with the Stampin Up Bear Hugs stamp set.
We are sharing our cards over in the Facebook group Stampin With Sandi – Hangout – it’s a public group, just ask to join and I’ll approve you – my stampin friends from around the world are in there and they are sharing some beautiful cards.
Ian is a forester and one of the things he loves about being out in the forest (besides smelling the trees – LOL), is seeing the bears roaming around so this little guy is perfect.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks:
- Layer the Love Blossoms Designer Paper to the Old Olive Mat and then attach to the card base.
- Stamp the Flowering Fields stamps across the piece of Whisper White.
- Use a blender pen and ink pad lids to color the images before attaching to the Old Olive mat and then to the card base.
- On a separate piece of Whisper White, stamp the little bear and honey pot in StazOn Black
- Color the bear with the Soft Suede ink pad and the honey pot is done with Daffodil delight and Delightful Dijon
- Use the coordinating Bear Hug Framelits to cut out these two pieces.
- Stamp the heart on the piece of Hello Honey and die cut that as well.
- Use the Happy Hearts Embossing Folder to emboss the Old Olive strip for the front, and then wrap the Linen Thread around it before attaching it to the card front.
- Use Dimensionals to add the three die cut pieces.
I also cut some extra pieces for the inside of the card, Whisper White is 3-7/8 x 5-1/8, Old Olive 4 x 5-1/4, I stamped the Flowering Fields image in StazOn Black and Colored it with Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive.
and if there was a challenge this week for who used the most stamps on one card?
I would be in the running don’t you think, haha….the florals in the background are from Flowering Fields, a stamp set you can currently earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order (the catalog and details are over on the right side of my blog).
