Two Cards Using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I thought I’d share two cards I made using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” stamp set! As we had a bit of a heat wave recently I thought it would be fun to play around with these cute ice lollies and ice cream images!
First Card:
1
I stamped two of the ice cream images out using my Misti with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers, I added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.

I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used Heffy Doodle’s “Candy Store” stencil with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks to create my front panel. I blended the second panel with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed it with my distress sprayer. I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Lacy Heart Stackables” to create my window in my blue and white panel.

I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” die set to cut my sentiment panel, running the top of it through again to partially die cut it to size. I secured it in my Misti and stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I adhered my panels together with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before popping my images and sentiment up with foam tape also. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered my front panel to it and then to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some light blue Nuvo drops for embellishment.

Second Card:

I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my ice lollies in a pattern going across the top of the panel and masked them with masking paper. I blended the edges of the panel using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and the centre with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to give it an ombre effect. I distressed the panel with some water, once it was dry I peeled off the masks. I cut away a section of the panel, keeping the bottom part of it. I coloured my images and added highlights with a white gel pen. I cut another panel from white card stock using the same die and blended it with Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink before distressing that also. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to be on the orange panel, secured it in my Misti and stamped it with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I wrapped some blue and white twine around my bottom blue panel before adhering both of the blue panels to my orange panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed it with a panel cut from black card stock like in the previous card and adhered to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Sprinkled With Love Card Using Some Odd Girl “Sweet & Salty”!

Hey lovelies! ❤ I’m back with another card using the Sweet & Salty stamp set from Some Odd Girl, I personally love this stamp set as the images are such a great size for a focal image! The weather has been heating up more and more lately as summer creeps in, what more perfect time for ice cream?!

~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~

I created my card base using heavyweight white card stock, and cut a panel of patterned paper from the Pink and Main “Be Brave” 6×6 paper pack to be slightly smaller than my card base. I chose the colourful triangle paper because it reminded me of bunting used for summer parties, how appropriate! I cut some strips from white card stock, I prepped one of the strips with my EK Success Powder tool so the embossing powder would only stick to the area I stamped. I stamped my sentiment “Sprinkled With Love” in Versafine onyx black ink, coated it in Papermania clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I then adhered the strips across the patterned paper using double sided foam tape, being careful to line them up with the edges of the patterned paper.

I stamped my ice cream cone images using Ranger Archival jet black ink as I planned to watercolour them this time around. My favourite flavour of ice cream is mint, so I felt I had to put that front and centre! I decided to go with chocolate and vanilla for the other two so they weren’t all competing too much on the card. Once they were dry I fussy cut them out by hand and adhered them together first using my regular tape runner, then adhered them beside my sentiment on my card!

Thank you for reading lovelies! ❤ This was such a quick card to make, probably one of my quickest! I love how simple yet colourful it is at the same time, and I think it’s perfect to send to a loved one in summer! What’s your favourite flavour of ice cream?!
