Hey lovelies! ❤
Today I want to share with you a card I made using the Lawn Fawn – Sweet Friends stamps and coordinating die set. Cute food and animal images are my weaknesses when it comes to card making, so I knew from the adorable sweet treats images and punny sentiments in this set I was going to be in love!
~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~
I started by stamping out the little s’more images and the little heart trio with Ranger Archival jet black ink on to some watercolour paper, while making this card I was just in the process of trying to become more comfortable with watercolour painting images/backgrounds. Once I painted them and was happy enough with the results, I used the coordinating die set to cut out my images using my Big Shot. I then stamped their little faces and drew in some blushing cheeks using coloured pencil (I didn’t stamp the faces at first as I wasn’t sure if I was going to use them on this card).
Once my images were ready I ink blended on to a piece of white scrap card stock using the Ranger/Tim Holtz Salty Ocean distress ink and used my spray bottle to give it the distressed look I wanted. Once dry, I decided to cut out a laced heart using the medium die from the Lawn Fawn Lacy Heart Stackable die set. I played about with placement to figure out where I wanted my little characters to go as well as the little hearts from the set, once I was happy I adhered the s’mores with some 3M double sided foam tape and the hearts with some Ranger multi medium matte adhesive.
Choosing a patterned paper was probably one of the things that took me the longest here, I just couldn’t decide! But I ended up going with this kraft paper with the white foil polkadots as I felt it suited the card best. I cut some black matte paper for my card base to size as well as the patterned paper, I adhered them using my usual tape runner adhesive and glued the blue heart with my little characters close to the top of my card in the centre.
For the sentiment I took a strip of black card stock and ran my EK Success powder tool over it, then heat embossed “I need S’MORE friends like you” with Altenew pure white embossing powder. I cut it to the size I needed and adhered it under the blue heart, and that was the card finished!
Thank you for reading lovelies! ❤ Overall this was a pretty simple card, but I love the end result! I definitely plan to make more cards in the future using some of the other images in the set, they’re just too cute to resist!
