Hello there Joy Clair Friends! It's Kerry here with another FUN card inspired by one of the newest stamp sets this month. Introducing: Candy Hearts!
As a teacher, I enjoy the time spent preparing for a fun and fabulous February 14th. I love the joy and excitement "Friendship and Love Day" brings to children and adults alike. To capture this joy and excitement, I created a little playful card using the Candy Hearts set. I love how it turned out. Take a peek, won't you!
To create this fun card, I started out by creating a simple banner using white cardstock. I then stamped the I (heart) you sentiment over and over again onto the panel using VersaMagic ink pads. After that was done, I rubbed the ink pads onto some stamped, embossed and fussy cut hearts from the set. I created one "boy" with blue and one "girl" with pink ink. Next came some doodling...Yes, I love to doodle. I doodled some faces and gave the girl a cute little bow for her hair. She needed something pretty to balance out Mr. Moustachio over there. I also added some glaze over their eyes and her lips to make things a bit slobbery if you know what I mean! After stamping and finishing the Candy Lovers, I started working on the background. I stamped the sentiments randomly over the kraft cardstock then embossed with clear embossing powder. I also stamped a few smaller candy hearts using some Ranger Embossing ink (love the cinnamon aroma) and clear EP. Once finished, I added some hand stitching with some pink thread. After stitching, I assembled the tag (more stitching), splattered some pink and aqua watered-down acrylic ink onto the panel, then layered and popped everything up on the card panel. I layered this panel onto some white cardstock and then onto a kraft card base to finish it off.
I hope you enjoyed this playful take on this fun new set. I can see that I will be using this set so many more times...Especially for my little kiddos at school. :)
