Happy Monday, y’all. Stated with no small amount of sarcasm. Its cold – it’s muddy – and it’s a work day. A trifecta of awesomeness! Bleh!
If you were able to join me last night for our Facebook Live video, thanks so much and I hope you enjoyed it! If not and would like to see how to make a double-loop bow, some Stamparatus-ing, a little masking and sponging and the Black Ice technique….then here’s the sort-of-instant-but-totally-not replay on YouTube!
The card we worked on last night used the Sweet Little Something stamp set from the Occasions catalog, plus a sentiment from the Baby Bear set (Annual). Take a look-see:
I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week:
I started by matting a piece of the gold Bundle of Love Specialty DSP on a Powder Pink panel for the card front!
For the art panel, I used a piece of Very Vanilla card stock, also matted on Powder Pink.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the three-step image in the Sweet Little Something stamp set. The first two steps I did in Soft Suede. The final step is Crumb Cake!
Beneath the sweet bunn-ya, I stamped a wonderful little sentiment from the Baby Bear stamp set in Powder Pink. Then I Fast Fuse’d the panel to the card front.
I used the Linen Thread double-loop Billie Moan bow – that I show how to make in the video – and adhered it with a Glue Dot. I also colored a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine with my Powder Pink ink pad, tied a small bow and added it with a Glue Dot as well. And that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I repeated the double layer of Bundle of Love Specialty DSP and Very Vanilla, all matted on Powder Pink. I used a sentiment from the Sweet Little Something set in Powder Pink. And I added the little flower images from that set as well!
I Fast Fuse’d it all together and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
I added the little Sweet Little Something flowers in Powder Pink across the front of my Very Vanilla Medium Envelope…
…and I added more of the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP to the envelope flap!
Et Voila! Cute bunny – cute sentiment – cute bow! Change the matting and ink colors and…you’ve got a card for a boy. Or – make it yellow or green and you’ve got…surprise! The photo-realistic bunny in Sweet Little Something and the bear in Baby Bear are especially wonderful, aren’t they? Hope you like!
