Best Friends Forever!

 

Hello dear friends,

Sharing with you a cute card (in my opinion) using Simon Says Stamp Friends release stamp set. I am grateful to have sent couple of stamp sets from the release. But because of the holidays, they arrived only yesterday. The stamp sets were so adorable that I inked them up immediately and made my card.

I have used two stamp set on my card. The first one is so cute with these cute critter images. This set is called Best Friends. On the background, I have used a sentiment stamp set from the release called Stained Glass Love stamp set.  Here is how I made the card.

  1. I used cream cardstock to stamp the critter cluster image from Best Friends stamp set using Chocolate Chip hybrid ink. This ink is great from copics as it is hybrid ink. I wanted something different from the normal black stamping. Also I wanted to use cream, beige, orange and brown combination on this card. So the Chocolate Chip hybrid ink from Taylored Expressions was perfect for stamping.
  2. I also stamped the same image on masking paper and hand cut out roughly the image and masked the stamped image on the panel.
  3. For the background, I used the Friend image from Stained Glass Love stamp set to stamp all over the background. I used Simon Says Stamp Barely Beige ink to stamp. This colour is soft yet noticeable on the background. Does not overpower the focal image.
  4. I removed the mask and copic coloured the images. How cute are those critters holding hands.
  5. The sentiment is from Best Friend Stamp set which I white heat embossed on a strip of Chocolate cardstock.
  6. I trimmed the stamped panel on the side a bit, roughed the edges and adhered on a Chocolate card base. Love the chocolate card base showing on the sides which ties in with the sentiment strip adhered on top bottom of the coloured image using foam adhesives.
  7. Finally I embellished with Sprinkles glitter enamel dots from Doodlebug.

Here are some closeup of the card.

All the supplies used to make this card are listed below. Best Friend stamp set is so adorable and coordinates really well with the Stained Glass Love stamp set. I cannot wait for my order to arrive. More goodies from the Friends release to play with and share.

See you soon with more projects from the release.

I used the beautiful Dream Big stamp set and coordinating die set from Hero Arts. This is a new stamp set and die for me.

Here is how I made the card.

  1. I created the background using distress inks Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserve, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso. Sponge and blend till you get a nice blending background.
  2. I spattered water on the blue sponged area and dabbed off the excess. Then spattered Opaque white for stars.
  3. Black heat emboss the images on bristol paper and watercolour the images. The die cut them using coordinating dies.
  4. The images are adhered on the card front. Some flush with glue and some with 3M scotch foam tape.
  5. Sentiment is white heat embossed on the bottom right of the panel.
  6. Adhered the panel on the card base.
  7. Embellished with Nuvo White Blizzard crystal drops.

This is a fun card because I had fun colouring these cute jelly bears with Faber Castell’s Polychromos pencils.

It took me a long long time to colour the jelly bear images from Lawn Fawn You’re Claw-some stamp set. But I really had fun colouring them. I felt like popping the bear inside my mouth after colouring each of them lol! OMG! so so cute. Then I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out. I white heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set on Lipstick Red cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I trimmed it out to a nice thin strip.

For the background, I die cut a wonky stitched rectangle panel using the blue watercolor paper from Lawn Fawn Watercolor pattern paper. I adhered the coloured images on the wonky stitched rectangle panel using foam adhesives. The sentiment below the image again using foam adhesives. I scattered the glitter enamel dots from Doodlebug around the image. This entire panel is adhered on Lipstick Red card base.

So now it’s YOUR turn to take out your crafty supplies and join in!
