Hello LDRS fans! Maria here with you today to share two "Just-Because" cards, showcasing the Friends Like You Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, along with one of my favorite die called Pretty Patterns Slim Line, In the Grass Die Set with the Plaid Stencil and Rainy Day Stencil.
My first card below is very simple. I stamped the image on some Bristol smooth white card stock using Iced Tea Hybrid Ink and colored them in with watercolor. I die-cut the image using the Friends Like You coordinating die set.
Next, I colored the Neenah solar white card stock and using a blending brush and Marina Madness Hybrid Ink. I added some texture and interest to the foreground by using the 6x6 Plaid Stencil, white texture paste and palette knife. I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour. I cut the grass using the In the Grass Die Set and Daisy Delights 6x6 paper. Also cut the gingham pattern strip from the Farmer's Market 6x6 paper pad and adhered both pieces to the foreground. The black and white strip was cut using the LDRS packaging. I adhered the image with liquid glue and added this piece to an A2-size notecard.
I finished the design by stamping the sentiment using Watermark Ink on some black card stock. I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool. Adhered this piece on the card with my ATG gun. Here's another look:
The images on the second card were stamped with Raven Hybrid Ink on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the Coordinating Dies. I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock and dark purple card stock using the Pretty Patterns Slim Line Die Set.
I added the grass and clouds by using the Rainy Day Stencil and hybrid inks in Dan-D-Lion, Soft Kisses, and Prickly Pear Perfection. I adhered the little critters on the foreground with liquid glue and added this piece on a lavender slimline card base. I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink.
I really love both cards today and I hope you like them too! I've also listed and linked the supplies I use below. Thanks for stopping today today and happy stamping!
