Lawn Fawn "I Love You(Calyptus)" | Mirror Stamping for Happy Heart Day
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Sooo funny story: I've talked that last couple of days about how I've been making a lot of cards, and not really posting. While I've been trying to post my regularly, it occurred to me this morning that the entire point of that was to get my Valentine's Day cards up - y'know, before Valentine's Day. Whoops.
Today, I have this adorable Valentine's Day or even just a thinking about you or encouragement card, featuring Lawn Fawn's "I love You(calyptus)" stamp set. Along with a bit of mirror stamping.
To begin I stamped the heart and masked it off, then I stamped the adorable koala from the I Love You(calyptus) stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then mirror stamped the same image to make him face the other way.
I used one of the stitched rectangles to cut down the panel and masked off both the koalas. To create the background, I used Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink for the bottom, Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender for the sky. I wanted to create a very soft background to go with these little guys.
I removed the masks and coloured all the images with Copic markers. I used the "Sending Hugs" Line Border die to cut my greeting out of a piece of watercolour paper that I had "rainbowed" for another project (it didn't make the cut).
I used clear Wink of Stella over the heart and covered it with Glossy Accents then placed my greeting border die on top. Once that was dry, I mounted my panel to a piece of patterned paper, then mounted the lot to the front of a standard A2 sized card base.
To finish it off, I used some Nuvo Crystal drops to add a touch of dimension.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar, over on Facebook and on YouTube!
