Hello! I am excited to be guest designing again for Technique Tuesday Stamps during their amazing 20% sale on love themed products now through Thursday 1/23! You can use coupon code LOVE2020 at checkout.
Today I have 2 cards I created using just two of the many Valentine’s products they have, the Love is in the Air stamp set & Heart Strings dies.
My first card showcases the Love is in the Air stamp set and is absolutely perfect for a box card! I love box cards for their wow factor and love how easy they are to put together!
I began by using box dies that I have, but you can also use templates on the cameo or cricut. On the bottom squares I used a cloud stencil with mustard seed oxide ink and then went lightly over it with squeezed lemonade. I added some of the heart strings from pink velvet paper for a bit of pop along the bottom.
For the top sections, I first heat embossed the sentiment, hearts, and paper airplane in white and, using the same cloud stencil and colors, I inked over them. I filled in the hearts with some pink copic markers.
Next, I stamped three hot air balloons, colored them copic markers and fussy cut out.
To put the items into the box card, I trimmed acetate to give them all a floating look. I added a few more heart strings that I layered to give them stability along with a few stitched clouds.
For my second card, I am showcasing the Heart Strings dies on this bright slimline card!
I love the slimline size of 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 to allow me to add tons of the heart strings all down the card!
For the background, I first die cut a scalloped frame, heat embossed the sentiment in white, inked it with abandoned coral, dried marigold & squeezed lemonade oxide inks and then splattered with white, pink & yellow shimmer sprays with a damp paint brush.
While the background dried, I stamped the heart and present from the Love is in the Air stamp set, colored them with copic markers, fussy cut out and added a few white accents with a pen.
To finish the card, I die cut a bunch of the heart strings from gold and white glitter paper, letting the white centers fall out on some. I then glued them down to the card and trimmed the sides with scissors. I added a few of the heart centers with foam tape to tie it all together.
