Welcome to the Create with Connie & Mary Thursday Challenge. I am using several different stamp sets to create this adorable “Love You” card.
I was pretty happy with this challenge and knew I would use the Alphabet stamp set and tiny ticket punch (Best Label), and I chose to use the bright 2022-2024 In-Colors by Stampin’ Up! This card will be fun to send to my granddaughter. I added a Basic White inside layer to write a happy note about my pride in her accomplishment.
The Love You Details:
Knowing that I wanted the “love” to be spelled horizontally across the card, I also wanted it laid out diagonally. To accomplish this, I stamped the word love three times with Starry Sky and once with Sweet Sorbet, then punched the letters out. I arranged them on a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of 2022-2024 In-Color designer series paper (DSP). After adhering a 1″ x 4 3/4″ Sweet Sorbet piece of DSP onto the Starry Sky card base, I glued the “love panel,” slightly offset, as shown.
Taking my cue from the challenge card, I used the Count On Me stamp set to choose the darling kangaroo. Once stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Crumb Cake, Sweet Sorbet, and Parakeet Party Blends markers, I die-cut her out with an oval die from All That dies.
But where did the “YOU” come from? I’m glad you asked, LOL. I used a Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Write Marker to ink up only the YOU from a sentiment in the Good Feelings stamp set. I stamped it onto the far right side of a 1/2″ strip of scrap Basic White cardstock, then trimmed it to length. After attaching the strip behind the oval, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card front.
The Finishing Touches:
I added three tiny Parakeet Party 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots to close the gap between the kangaroo and the sentiment. Using a Starry Sky Stampin’ Blends marker, I colored a white Crinkled seam binding length. After letting it dry, I tied a bow to glue-dot in place.
