Hello my crafty friends! Maria Russell with you today on the LDRS blog with a simple "Valentine-themed" card showcasing one of my favorite stamp sets from the shop. I am featuring the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers die set, Up & Away stamp set and dies, along with the Rainy Day Stencil, Anytime Stack stamp set, Sentiment Stack Coordinating Die and In the Breeze die.
Since Valentine's Day is fast-approaching, I thought I'd get a head start and create some simple cards that you can easily mass-produce to send to friends. I started by stamping my images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the Up & Away die set to die-cut the images.
Next, I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers die set. I started to create my outdoor scene with the Rainy Day Stencil, a blending brush and Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink for the grass. The pink clouds were created with the same Rainy Day Stencil, blending brush and Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink. I don't know about you but this color-combo just screams "valentine's" to me!
I used the In the Breeze die for added texture and adhered this panel on an A2-size card base.
Next, I adhered the images on the card with some liquid glue. I finished my design by adding the sentiment "You're One of a Kind", that was earlier stamped on some black card stock using the Anytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack Coordinating Die. These stamp-and-die combo is one of my favorites because you can stamp the sentiments and die-cut a bunch with just one pass on your die-cutting machine. LDRS has a few of these awesome stamps so check them all out at the shop and grab your favorites.
I really love how this card turned out, don't you?! The supplies I use are listed and linked below. Thanks so much for stopping by!
