Even though Valentine’s is past, I wanted to show you my card using the I Heart You Gwen digital stamp. Isn’t she cute??
So let me tell you how I put this whole card together…
I used Bristol Smooth paper for my card panel and cut it down with a stitched rectangle die from Kat Scrappiness. I then used one of my newer (to me) Distress Inks in Spun Sugar over a heart stencil (called Full Of Hearts) from My Favorite Things. I tried to make the edges lighter so it sort of faded out a bit.
I then printed out Miss Gwen on some Neenah Solar White *Index* paper. I had accidentally bought this cardstock thinking it was the 110# that I wanted for card bases, it wasn’t; but it works just fine with my printer and coloring/cutting images. I colored her in using my Copic markers.
For my sentiment, I used a “Love” die which I believe is also from My Favorite Things. I didn’t have a matching “You” die but I had a couple of different options and I chose this one, I haven’t a clue where it’s from.
Once I had everything glued onto my card panel, using a combination of Double Sided Tape and Tombow Liquid Glue, I used my Wink Of Stella Clear sparkle pen on the letters and Clear Glossy Accents on the “Love” and “You” then added red sequins. Finally, I used my white gel pen to give her some highlights and my black pen to give her some earrings.
Thanks for joining me today!
