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.
It comes as no surprise to anyone that I am super excited for my first wedding anniversary. Traditionally the gift for a first wedding anniversary is paper, and I LOVE PAPER !!!
Now it's very unlikely that my husband will see this post or card I've made for him before tomorrow so I think I'm safe sharing it with you here today, as long as you can keep the secret with me for a day ;-)
It's been made using the Close To My Heart, Artbooking, Cricut Cartridge (Floating Hearts Overlay). By playing around in the Cricut Design Space I was able to join the floating hearts to a card front, cut it out of Bashful cardstock and then cut a second layer of floating hearts, in the Bashful Glitter paper. The stamp is from the Cricut Flower Market Collection. The circles have been cut with generic stitched circle thin cuts.
I've added a circle to the inside of the card so I know where I can write (and will probably write on the back of this one too).
