This is the last of the four cards I’ve made using the images from the forthcoming Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set.
The reactions I’ve had to the first three cards shows how very popular this stamp set is.
Apparently it’s on back order already and we’re still just in the pre-order phase, although I can’t say I’m surprised at all!
As we’re still in the pre-order period, I don’t have any Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the five new InColours – Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Sweet Sugarplum.
My first thought was to go for something lighter than the Emerald Envy that I’ve used for the frog and I came very close to using Pool Party.
The only thing that stopped me was that it was quite late by the time I was working on this and although it looked as if the two would go together well, I was concerned it would look totally wrong in daylight.
I’ve just checked the two together in daylight and I’m sure it would have worked – something else on the To Be Tried List! LOL!
I decided to play safe and used the silver script design from the Neutrals DSP Stack.
To make my card, I started with a card base of Whisper White Cardstock, with a layer of Emerald Envy and a top layer of the silver script design in the new Neutral’s DSP Stack.
Using Basic Black Archival Ink I stamped the frog and painted him using an ink pad and a Blender Pen, then I fussy cut him out.
I die cut a piece of Whisper White using one of the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies and another one in Emerald Envy in the next size up of Framelit.
I adhered both tags together, then adhered the frog on top and then adhered this to the card front using Dimensionals, making sure the top ones went above the ribbon and the lower ones below the ribbon.
My original plan was to stamp the speech bubble stamp that’s in the stamp set and just says YOU three times in the same position where I have put the sentiments LOVE YOU LOTS.
I found that stamping on this particular DSP was not ideal.
My alternative was to stamp the replacement sentiment onto Whisper White Cardstock and punch them out with the soon-to-be retired Word Window Punch.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using the Love You Lots Stamp Set this week – I wonder which stamp set I can use next week?
I hope you have a great weekend and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
