For this Let Love Grow card I've used the Rock 'n' Roll stamping effect to give the pots and plants a dimensional effect. I've shared a how to video below so you can give it a try. This technique works really well with any solid effect stamp.
The stamp set is called "So much happy - cardmaking" and its definitely lived up to its name so far. I'm not normally excited about fussy cutting but the results this stamp set produces are really worth the extra effort. The light blue sky background was made with watercolour paints and helps create the garden scenery I was after.
Here are some colour choices for the pots and plants I've used. Have a play with some similar colours to get the effect you're after.
Ink the lighter colour first then roll the edge in the darker colour. This will prevent your lighter ink pads from getting stained with the darker colour.
After seeing something similar on a YouTube video I couldn't wait to try making these wiper pop-up cards.
I'm really happy with how they came out and how many different ways they can be used. As with everything crafty your imagination is your only limit.
A frame can really make your card stand out and OH BOY! have I got a treat for you!
I've created 3 very different cards using the same frame, shared the 'how to's' and given you the link to make some yourself with Cricut Design Space.

I love this photo my niece took of her sister and friend. I'm sure she won't mind that I copied it from her Instagram account.
Making the background for this page was so much fun. You never know how it will turn out and you can never create it exactly the same again.
The Quokka, always happy to pose for a selfie and happy to share a bottle of water on a hot day. These little marsupials are the cutest little things. A few days after we visited Rottenest Island the news was all over a little Quokka named Steve who had escaped the island on a ferry. He was found a few days later and returned to the island. I can just imagine the adventure he had!
Quick share of an eclipse card I made for... can you guess who?
Made using the CTMH Block Alphabet and Doily Wishes stamp set. After stamping the Doily wishes with Heather Ink I daubered the doily sections with blue, pink and green.
